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."

ABC hurt Ashley for the purposes of ratings. Shame on ABC and the Bachelor franchise.

Although I hate what Bentley DID and WHO he is as a person, I blame the show for giving him any airtime. They showed the derogatory segments for ratings and that is SO WRONG. Where are the ethics? Bentley is the epitome of SCUM and he got exactly what he set out for with the HELP of the show. Unbelievable. This was extremely difficult to watch tonight.

Bentley is the most disgusting human being to ever walk the face of this earth. How anyone could be so cruel to mess with someone like this on national television? Also to humiliate her when she's trying to meet the right guy for her and saying such cruel things about her are so mean and nasty, especially to such a sweet cute girl like Ashley. She doesn't deserve this at all. If the bastard doesn't like her leave the show but be nice and say your not interested. She's a human being. I hope what comes around goes around. Did i mention i hate him. Good luck Ashley, you deserve a wonderful guy to treat you great. i hope you pick West. I think he's cute and very nice. If you read this get over Bentley your way way way to good for him.

As much as I hate to admit it women will chase Bently - remember OJ Simpson...women chased him knowing he was an abuser and murderer. A lot of women think they are the "one" who can change the guy. On a lighter side it cracks me up that Bently thinks he could be in the running with Emily...haha what a bozo..

This guy has really shot himself in the foot. After doing this, behaving like a spoiled brat and showing his true colours on national television, what woman would date him now??

One of the most despicable thing a man can do is lead a woman on. We saw that with Wes in Jillian's season now we have Bentley who's even worse. ABC and Mike Fliess better rethink your casting policies.

P.S. The shows producers and / or the host should have kicked Bentley to the curb instead of letting this go on. While Bentley should be embarrassed about his wacko behavior, the producers should be held accountable for letting his vitriol continue.
