In our Bachelorette recap earlier, we touched on many burning questions from last night, most of which we may never fully know the answer to.
Why did Bentley Williams go on the show? Why did he treat Ashley like garbage? Why didn't ABC boot him? How can he be allowed to return!?
One thing is clear: We need Chris Harrison like never before.
Below are excerpts from Chris' EW blog this morning, in which The Bachelorette host addresses the scourge of society that is Bentley:
On whether Bentley Williams is the show's worst villain: My first thought about that is that’s really something for you guys to judge, not me.
My second thought is the “villain” title really doesn’t do justice to what went down. It softens the blow and simplifies things too much in my opinion.
On why Bentley left and when: I’m not positive, but something about not getting the rose on this group date seemed to set the wheels in motion.
Whenever he decided he was going, he pulled the trigger the next morning. Let me be very clear about my thoughts on Bentley and him leaving.
I have no problem with him coming on the show, even if he hoped The Bachelorette was Emily, or with him deciding it was time to leave. That's up to him.
