In a cross-promotional effort somewhere between awesome and terrible, Monday's episode of The Bachelor will feature a date with Brad Womack in which three of the remaining ladies will pose for the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue!
Move over, Brooklyn Decker. Make room for Ashley Hebert ...
Don't get us wrong. Ashley, Chantal O’Brien and Michelle Money are all attractive girls worthy of inclusion. But c'mon, we're talking about The Bachelor, people.
The SI swimsuit issue may have jumped the shark with this PR stunt, desperate to make a splash (pun intended) in the Free-Internet-Pics-of-Hot-Girls era.
Nevertheless, you can't deny that Michelle Money, for all her psycho stalker antics, has a ridiculous body she will flaunt in this setting. Chantal isn't far behind.Ashley Hebert doesn't have the same swimsuit model figure you normally see in SI, but is still a bona fide cutie by any measure, as the pic above proves.
Her fun-loving spirit comes across well ... and just forget what we said in the previous sentence. She looks like she has a dancer's body and looks amazing.
Interestingly, earlier previews for this episode may have been designed to try to throw off The Bachelor spoilers, as it was made out to look like the finale.
Chantal laments that Brad Womack can't choose her as "one of three girls." But it's not the end. There are still six remaining at this stage of the game.
Here's a sneak peek of the episode, in which Brad Womack gets the grumpy girls out of bed at 2 a.m. to go on this date. Oh, it will be quite worth it, girls.
If you're one of the six straight guys who watches The Bachelor, this will almost surely go down as the best group date in the show's 15-season history:
