Bentley Williams: Out to DESTROY Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette!

by at . Comments

Bentley Williams is already establishing himself as one of The Bachelorette's all-time villains. When Wes Hayden is calling you out on Twitter, you know things are getting uglier by the day - and we're only two episodes into the season.

Despite admitting that Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert wasn't his type, Bentley is basically wooing her just for kicks. That has Chris Harrison pretty upset.

Here's what the ABC show's host had to say about the drama:

Ashley Hebert and Bentley Williams

On how he even got cast: "He obviously didn't say all those derogatory things in casting. He might have said, 'It would be cool if it was Emily [Maynard].' Bentley obviously didn't say, 'If it's Ashley, I'm going to use and destroy her.'"

On whether he warned Ashley: "If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, which we did, that's beyond a red flag. We gave her the option, telling her, 'You don't have to meet this guy. We can pull him.'"

"We justify everything by giving Ashley the power."

"It was her job to say no. We don't step in and say, 'That's the wrong decision.' I had many conversations with her about this, as did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs."

On whether she really fell for him: "If we had stopped the show the moment the limos arrived, he probably would have been the one. It almost happened that instantaneously. He was so smooth and so caring around her."

On how Ashley Hebert feels now: "Foolish. If she had to do it all over again, she'd probably never let the guy out of the limo. But it happened, and you see everything – warts and all ... This is a real woman battling her insecurities."

On whether it's just editing: "How? You see his face saying these things on camera. The things he said even jokingly were not appropriate."

"How would he feel if someone treated his daughter that way? The stunt he pulls as he's leaving is the worst as far as messing with her mind. There's not enough editing in the world good or bad that would have saved this guy."

On whether the show tries to have a bad guy: "We didn't put this guy in there to draw out drama. People give us too much credit. This doesn't turn out to be a good thing for us or Ashley. We almost had to shut down production."

"If it was two or three weeks later, we probably wouldn't have finished. This makes her question everything – the rest of the guys, herself, if this was worth it. It was really rough for us to get her back on track."

"Ashley has a hard time moving passed this. It will haunt her and play a major role. She [became] a different person – a crestfallen, vulnerable little girl."

I also agrre with Dave. All you women out there think we are all like Bent-ly. I have never done anything remotely close to that ever, and dont (kid) your self ladies you play men like a cheap violen. Ashley was warned Bent-ly is sick, but myself and alot of men out there are looking for some one to grow old with, so chill.

As far as Ashley goes, she was warned and chose to give him a chance. But if Bent-ly dose get on next season,s show (lah)he,s gonna get playd BIG TIME.

Anybody who treats women like this and has the care of a little girl should have those rights taken away from them. Ashley is the most unstable person I've seen but she didn't deserve that. I blame ABC for letting this go that far. Ruined it for me and I'm sure alot of viewers. I hope they don't compound the mistake by letting him on the after show. He doesn't deserve to be there. He got his 15 minutes of fame and that's all he wanted. Shame on ABC for giving it to him.

I totally agree with June, Bently is a sociopath. He is personality disordered and is beyond help because he lacks empathy and self awareness. There is a great book about the Bentlys of the world, called "The Mask of Sanity". They are extremely seductive,manipulative and dangerous (especially emotionally) and should not be taken lightly.(Interesting that someone else on the show wore a mask, cause Bentlys mask is forever.) I think the powers that be owe Ashley an apology. Once they had the scoop on him, they should have pulled him, saving Ashley and the Bachelorette viewers a lot of pain and humiliation. Bad call guys!

ok bentley isnt a great catch but ashely fell for him she passed over a bunch of guys who would have treated her way better but yet she chose bentley so maybe this was a lesson she needed.same thing with william he said the bacholerette should have been emily he may have said it at a roast but i believe he spoke his real mind and when he saw it hurt her he wanted to leave yet someone who could say that and walk out she still wants she is just the kinda girl who goes for the guys who will treat her like sh*t...im not sayign what bentley did was right but she fell for it and turned down plenty of nice guys so she should stop whining

That @sshole wasn't even that good-looking! Too many women are duped by the squinty eyes and confident - read: smug - smile. Dumb people DO belong together, however, so let the egotistical, vapid ones pair up and leave more room for the rest of us "average" people.

It is possible that this situation with a personality like Bentley, could be used as a teaching tool for many young women who are vulnerable to this kind of manipulation.It was so raw and excrucuating and you could see how someone's face could look so genuine-but be exactly the opposite in his genuinely evil intentions.I know he has a personality disorder -but so do many other men-and if young girls could learn to identify this behavior, they could save themselves from some awful things.Ashley is very naïve and full of romanticism-but perhaps she is learning some lessons that most of us were not taught as young women and will come out of this stronger. I hope so.

What a waste.. ashley is a joke what a dipstick.. Bently you make all men look bad you pos.... ashley is being used for just rateings . what man would want to be with her now ..

This episode could ruin the next seasons to come. No surprise that Bentley is divorced. I feel bad that his daughter has to live with her father's embarrassing behaviors. The real question is to why ABC allowed the guys to "Roast" Ashley. Poor Choice.
