He's a lover, not a fighter!
On Monday night's Bachelorette, filmed in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the remaining 11 guys battled it out in the boxing ring in front of Ashley Hebert. For Ames, 31, it was the "first fight" he'd ever been in.
Dressed in hot pink shorts, the Ivy-leaguer tried to defend himself from repeated blows to the head delivered by his opponent, Ryan P. After losing the fight, it was clear to Hebert, 27, and the other guys that something was not quite right with Ames, who had a bloody nose, glassy eyes and dazed look.
"I'm great," he reassured the group. "Thank you." Unconvinced, Hebert, a dental student, ran for medical help. Ames was rushed away in an ambulance and then treated for a concussion.
Meanwhile, Hebert chose Ben C and William for the two-on-one date. William, 30, was quick to throw Ben C under the bus. "He's not here for the right reason," the cell phone salesman tattled to Hebert. "He's already talking about all the online dating he's going to do after this show."
Hebert stopped the date mid-way and sent Ben C packing. The Louisiana lawyer felt "extremely betrayed" by William. But Hebert wasn't impressed by William either, who described himself as "a thirty-year-old boy." He was not given a rose and sent home from the date.
In the rose ceremony, Hebert awarded roses to all remaining suitors except for personal trainer Nick. He left amicably and thanked her for the opportunity to get to know her.
Unlike last week's episode, Hebert didn't dwell on Bentley for the duration of the show. Still, at the end, she admitted she'd "never get over this Bentley thing" and lamented that "something was there."
"If it wasn't real, I'll be fine with that," she said. "I just want to talk to him, and ask him a few questions... The fact that he left me with a 'dot dot dot' leaves me wondering."
Chris Harrison reminded Hebert that they were "halfway around the world" from Bentley, but promised he'd "do what he could" to help the Bachelorette to get closure on the situation.
