Moving on! Next we get the blooper reel filled with hilarious moments of tomfoolery, head bumps, nudity, bugs, burps, frogs, masks, dance moves, mockery, and Chris Harrison doing up his fly. So so funny. Not really. Holy hell is this thing done yet? No. Harrison asks Ashley to tell us again that she is happy. She assures us that she has sought help and the medication has kicked in. Also, love.
As we round the final curve of this incredibly long waste of air space, we get to see J.P. and Ben's journey to love. Ashley says she doesn't need 20 dates to know how she feels about J.P. Her relationship with him is everything she's ever wanted in a marriage. They have a passion for each other, but they are so committed and a great connection. He's the total package for her. Then J.P. takes over the voice over duties and talks about how he sees a great woman, a great wife, a great mother. He just knows that it's right. He can't picture a life without her. He's confident with the direction things are heading. He's ready for them to be engaged and to get on with their lives. But wait, there's Ben! With Ben, Ashley feels like she has everything: all the love, everything. She feels like he is her boyfriend, her lover, her friend. Like he's been her boyfriend forever. Ben reminds us that he's been pretty guarded since his dad died, but Ashley is a girl he really genuinely cares about. There are no emotional barriers anymore because of Ashley. For her part, Ashley thinks if she and Ben ended up together they could really last. She could really see herself with Ben and could really be falling in love with him. But who will she choose? You will just have to tune in tomorrow to find out. Or you know go on about your life.
