The Bachelorette is about to come to a dramatic close with Ashley having to choose between two men: J.P. Rosenbaum or Ben Flajnik. Both men couldn’t be more opposite from each other but the question still remains… who will Ashley give the final rose to AND will they propose to her in the beautiful scenery of Fiji? Let me share my thoughts on each of the men.
J.P. Rosenbaum has always been an early favorite of mine. I mean look at him, what’s not to love? He’s absolutely adorable. He has one of those winning smiles that makes you swoon and weak in the knees. When he is with Ashley, I see the more playful and fun side in her. The only thing that annoys me about J.P. is that he can kind of be a cry baby sometime, if not all the time. However, I really hope that she picks him in the end. I think they could be the next Trista & Ryan or Ali & Roberto.
To be perfectly honest, I kept getting Ben Flajnik and his friend Constantine mixed up every single episode. They look EXACTLY THE SAME. I was even convinced that in some sort of conspiracy, they were twins. Now that Constantine has left, it’s easier for me to look at Ben on his own without confusing him with another man. While J.P. bring out her playful side, Ben brings out Ashley’s serious and calming side, which can be great but I think can live a little bit more with J.P.
So, if you were in Ashley’s shoes, who’d you rather? Need more help on deciding?
