On top of that, ABC drew other participants from around the world, what with their mysterious allure and sexy accents.
What surprised me was that this time around, Ashley did not end up balling all the time, but rather, found THAT man that she's been pining for after all these years on the show. Of course, then, she did have those "happy tears" near the end but they don't count!
AND YES, Ashley wanted that fantasy suite night!!!
This was the best sign ever, from the Bachelor franchise,
"Ashley Don't Give
"Ashley Don't Give
I think ABC did go a bit far when they held the kissing contest, and then, to chase a girl into the bathroom and film her throwing up because she was so nervous about kissing on demand! Come on guys, really?
The other surprise was how the foreign men were more so upfront about serious about their relationships than the American men have ever been on this franchise.
Even the elimination nights were unique in how they were executed.
But all in all, that last episode, the couples that were left seemed pretty connected and all cute together.
Even though this series was in honor of the Winter Olympics, I hope they continue this winter games version of The Bachelor. The fun, the contests of people who could not ski or skate, were all a blast!
Of course, congrats to the first winners of The Bachelor Winter Games, Kevin and Ashley. But it looks like the remaining four couples were all winners.
For once, a real fun Bachelor show.
The "Tell All" follow up episode was pretty interesting, especially with the excuses that Luke was tossing around for why he totally disappeared on Stassi. I feel really bad for Stassi.
And there was that surprise couple and proposal after all was said and done for Benoit and Clare.
