Bentley Williams: The Worst Bachelorette Villain Yet?

by at . Comments

"I'd rather go swimming in pee." - Bentley Williams on marrying Ashley Hebert

Bentley will not win this season - to learn who does, read The Bachelorette spoilers here - but he's generated almost all of the show's buzz so far.

With most bad boys on The Bachelorette, you either love 'em or love to hate 'em. With Bentley Williams, no one's even in the former category.

The 28-year-old divorcee from Utah is seemingly on the show just to straight up mind f%*k Ashley Hebert, who's obviously smitten with him.

Bentley Works Ashley

It's sad, really. While past "villains" like Wes got a bad rap, Bentley Williams is in a league of his own, leading Ashley on and loving every second of it.

Obviously, this is The Bachelorette. You can't believe everything you see or take it at 100 percent face value. But this is no sabotage by editing here.

His direct quotes show a sleaze determined to not just mislead, but mock Ashley at every turn, and reveal a guy just going on the show for kicks.

How far will he make it? How does he leave? That will begin to play out on tonight's episode (again follow the link above for what we know so far).

For now, here's a little background on the shadiest contestant yet:

Ashley Hebert may not realize Williams' motives, but the divorced father of Cozy is fooling none of his viewers. Not that he's really trying, of course.

"When I read the bios, my first favorite was Bentley," last season's Bachelor winner Emily Maynard recently said of Williams. "But then, yeah, ew!"

Exactly.

Bentley's ex-wife, Suzette Davis, is friendly with another of last season's Bachelor cast members, Michelle Money. She was the one who warned Hebert that Williams was only on the show to promote his business.

"I would want to know if I was in Ashley's situation," Money said.

So who is this dude? Williams now co-owns the Airborne Trampoline Arena in Draper, Utah. He graduated in 2007 from Brigham Young University before going on to New York University to receive his MBA.

Prior to his stint on the show, Williams logged long hours at Goldman Sachs and General Motors, among other companies. So he's clearly no fool.

Bentley and Suzette have a two-year-old daughter Cozette (a.k.a. "Cozy"), making his actions all the more devious. Way to be a role model, guy.

The guy isn't attractive at all, he reminds me of Quintin Tarantino!!! Ashley is an idiot not to see through him and fall for a guy who isn't attracted to her.

Bentley is the biggest asshole ive ever met. he says that he wanted Emily and if she was there he would have fell for her. Yet Emily has a pure and genuine heart so she would never love a guy who would play with a girl's emotions like he did with Ashley. It's not her fault that she tried to open up her heart and fall in love. Bentley was a great actor.

His ex should petition the courts to keep this creep as far away from the daughter as possible!!!!!!!! Poor excuse for a "father"!!!!!

She has to be the most insecure bachelorette ever. She also has a very bad sense of who has good and bad intentions. I used to like her but now I think she is pretty stupid.

I agree with Janice. She's past the age of falling for crap like his, so either she's dumb or she's playing along to make her show more interesting.

What a low life. Treating anyone like that is completely unacceptable but doing it on national television is really crossing a line.

I blame Ashley completely. The SECOND she found out his motives, she should have kicked him to the curb. She is too old to be trying to play the 'I will be the one to change him' game.
