Final Show: More Edits Exposed—Exclusive Commentary from Bentley*


*by Bentley we mean Bentley Apologists (that guy with amazing hair had nothing to do with this post)

Let’s get started by watching a few clips that make yet another strong case for heavy editing in the show.  This is an interview given right before Ashley is proposed to by both JP and Ben (this is just one clip clarifying the time of the interview as right before the final rose).  Now this second clip is from the Japan show of Ashley supposedly “figuring Bentley out” and telling Bentley off. Notice anything similar?  They are the EXACT SAME INTERVIEW happening on the same day, check out Ashley’s outfits, makeup, hair, and background.  This girl has never been in the same outfit on this show in two episodes.  What does this mean?  The complete tell off of Bentley supposedly happening weeks earlier was completely fabricated.

After reading the Bentley Apologists Edits posts, this type of editing is no surprise to our readers.  Ashley was edited to look sharper than she is, Bentley was edited to look like a jerk more than he is, and the producers haven been laughing all the way to the next trashy show production.

Bentley was never invited back to the final show.  Contestants are compelled to attend on at the request of ABC as part of their contract.  Same reason Bentley can’t give an interview. If Bentley violates the contract, the show can quite easily sue him for the “damages” to the production.  The producers and Chris Harrison didn’t want Bentley back because it was too much of a risk for them as noted by this blogger.

Let’s re-watch the clip of the men discussing Bentley.  All the comments are by no names like Drunk Tim (with the exception of Glambert) and the edits of the discussion are super choppy.  Is this really all they had to say?  Certainly not, the men that got to know him defended Bentley in the press here, here and here.  Bentley had an army of friends on that panel that we never heard a word from.  None of the men that supported him said anything on the final cut that aired? Well that is what the producers want you to think, but apparently these men actually defended Bentley, unfortunately we didn’t get to see it.

So what about the man whose name has been mentioned in EVERY SINGLE SHOW since the first 3 episodes he was on? The man who got a girl to fall in love with him after hanging out a total of about 3-4 hours alone?  And even with the edits, is what Bentley did really that bad?  We are quite certain Ashley gave roses to multiple men she had mediocre feelings for.  Shoot, Ashley had Ben propose to her before telling him no.  Ben said that Ashley gave no sign that she was not choosing him till after he completely humiliated himself.  How is this any better than what Bentley did?  It’s not!  It’s actually worse.  Bentley was leading a girl on for a few dates and Ashley made someone think she was going to marry them.  What about Brad Womack and others who slept with multiple women only to reject them for someone they were certain they would choose?  Clearly any of these offences is—much—much worse than what Bentley did.

Why have the Producers and Chris Harrison tried so hard to make Bentley look bad?  They are mad at Bentley because he turned the game on its head.  This game show is set up for the star Man or Woman to string along multiple mates to a rose ceremony, not the other way around.  Bentley exposed how trashy this show actually is.

Bentley we have enjoyed fighting for you and your hair.  Most of all we have enjoyed the dialog with some insane readers.  Wish you the best.

    Honestly your piecing of that editing together was nothing short of genius. What next? Do we dare hope for Bentley on Season 3 of Bachelor Pad? I can’t wait! http://www.babefromtheburbs.com
    p.s. don’t hate me bc I called him an asshole on my blog…we all know he is…but we’re totally ok with that cuz his hair cancels it out. He def should have been on The Men Tell All. It broke my heart when he wasn’t there…

    Actually they are not the same. Same shirt yes, but the hair and make-up are different.

    • August 3, 2011 at 2:12 pm

      Apologists don’t agree Robby. When she told Bentley off in a personal interview in Japan it was considered a high point of the show for her. It’s something that producers wanted because America had turned on Ashley. Everyone thought she was completely inept when it came to relationships. The producers needed this video cllip to legitimize Ashley and Ashley wanted it so she did not look completely stupid. We explain all this in our post “Ashley Gets Her Period” (http://bentleywilliamsapologists.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/ashley-finally-gets-her-period/)

      Reality Steve agrees with our take and he explained it in his blog. There is no way that the Bentley tell off interview actually happened when they showed it. The video is just further proof.

    there is no good reason for coming on a potential marriage show when you werent interested in marriage. as soon as u found ashley wasnt for you YOU should have gotten drunk you low life BENTLEY and left the show with some dignity, instead your name is forever imprinted in many ppl’s heads and your ugly sadistic character is world renowned and will remain that way in business and leave traceable doubt in every womans heart who approaches you for a date. and hey, if you have a problem with what i say, than please feel free to tell me to my face ! and no your hair looks like you’ve been hit by a two by four! brain dead freak.

      He did leave. He left after their 2nd group date. Also, I agree with the blog, what Ashley did to Ben was much worse

      I doubt this will effect him in business. No self respecting business man or woman would ever admit to watching this show.

      • illuminateme
        August 3, 2011 at 3:01 pm

        Your such a low life JenZull. Bentley is a punk and now you’;ve made yourself a **** . He’s a sperm donor loud mouth immature woman hater and has no right being a father. No respective business man/woman would want to do business with a self deprecating person as Bentley. He is two faced and Im sure he wil have a hard time getting by personally and in business as most ” normal” people dont like high risk ventures.

        • August 3, 2011 at 3:21 pm

          ” illuminateme”, before you go flying off the handle at Jen look up a few of those words. I don’t thing your understanding of “self deprecating” is in sync with what you are trying to convey. Spend some time reading the blog and making some cogent arguments. We would love to hear your thoughts but your comments contain so much hate that you come off as a rabid dog. Calm down and realize we are not talking about Hitler.

          So let’s try this. I am going to ask you a question. Which would you prefer? To be Ashley who was played by Bentley on two group dates? Or to be Ben who was played by Ashley? Keep in mind that Ben ended up falling in love and Ashley let him propose to her knowing perfectly well that she was choosing JP.

          Also what makes you think this show has that many viewers? Especially viewers that are in business? (good point Jen) Keep in mind that there are over 300MM people in the US.

    it is clean, and i dont care if u delete my comments, we are not comparing ben to bentley, that is just a cop out. and i can understand why you would compare bentley to hitler, he hated a race of peoples just like bentley hates women and wants to make them cry. ben is a confused little dork, ashley, who cares about ashley, we are talking about a little big boy named bentley who sat infront of a camera and told the world he is having fun making another human being upset…. dot dot dot… or do u need to read in between the lines…

    some of bentley’s quotes ” * “I would literally rather be, like, swimming in pee than trying to plan my wedding with her.”
    * “Talking to Ashley is one of those things that I’m not sure exactly how this is going to go, but there’s no turning back. It’s a trip dude. It’s freaking with my head. I need to go poop it out.”
    * “Like seriously, can we just bag this and go play blackjack?”
    * “She has a great body. Amazing butt. Rockin’ legs. The competition makes it exciting, and competing for her and that’s the extent, in terms of my interest. You know, I mean, she’s just not my type.”

    Keep reading for the rest, and beware, spoilers ahead!

    * “These tools, like these freaking idiots — all the guys know that I’m the frontrunner because they see my connection with Ashley. She’s more into me than anyone else. But none of them have any idea that I don’t care about Ashley.”
    * “I have the opportunity and I played everyone. That’s something that’s never been done before.”
    * “Actions speak louder than words. Do I need to force this kiss? Do I need to ram my tongue down her throat?”
    * “I came in thinking that Ashley was not attractive at all. I’m not feeling it . . . I’m gonna make Ashley cry. I hope my hair looks OK.”
    * “[After a kiss] It started out good but it sucked towards the end . . . I’d be lying to everyone if I’m, like, ‘Yeah, I’m in this ’til the end. I’m gonna ride this out for two months.’ There’s no way I’m going to last that long.”

    • August 3, 2011 at 4:15 pm

      Take some time and read comments slowly, I’m not comparing Ben to Bentley, I’m comparing ASHLEY to BENTLEY, would you rather get burned THE WAY ASHLEY DID OR THE WAY BEN DID (BY ASHLEY). –FYI these are not intended to be shouting caps just trying to make it clear for you.

      Saying Bentley is on par with Hitler shows a profound lack of knowledge and respect of the holocaust. Based on your comments I’m guessing your in your teens (which is ok, but you might want to have a bit more humility in the future).

      You should really spend some time reading on this blog before your next comment. We have a blog posts that respond to almost every single one of those comments made by Bentley. I’ll let you explore it yourself because I think the content is not too bad. It’s quite fun to see how well they have edited Bentley.

      Specifically, check out your after the Kiss quote. Without question this was a quote about their dance routine from the date played over the part of them kissing. Totally unrelated but totally awesome editing to make him look horrible.

        if we as viewers are going to sit back and laugh at a man mistreating a woman like that, we might as well club our own heads and stay in the dark ages or blame a poor economy for enlightened mischief via bully behaviour, or better yet, move the heck outta the us completely and marry someone who REALLY finds this type of behaviour acceptable for comedic relief. ( and no I am not a teenager and your the one who compared hitler to bentley and brought him into the conversation not me ) you really need to get a life, get some empathy and see the whole picture, and keep your pubescent immorality for your fans ) but by all means, instead of remaining anonymous, please my friend, go to a public place and say what you are saying here. be my guest, and your right, i would love to see bentley on bachelor pad.. now THAT would be entertainment. ” actions do speak louder than words” quote by bentley, he wouldnt dare show up. your life must really suck to get glee from sadness.

        • August 3, 2011 at 6:09 pm

          For someone calling them self “Illuminatem” you actually are calling for someone to not be anonymous?

          You watch a show about Bentley’s life
          You look online for content about Bentley’s life,
          You comment on this blog multiple times about Bentley’s life,

          Who exactly were you saying needs a life?

      HOLY crap! when u put it in writing Like That it makes You sick to Ur stommack 2 no there are people out there who are mean. and this website makes us women scared to trust men.

      • August 3, 2011 at 8:16 pm

        Sarahcohen the point of the site is that you shouldn’t trust Chris Harrison and The Bachelorette show.

        Also, if this website has that much influence over you and your relationship with men–I’m thinking you might have some other salient issues you need to resolve.

        • sarah cohen
          August 3, 2011 at 9:02 pm

          chris harrison is just the host, not the producer and editor and everything. and is it more feasible that everyone involved in the making of this one season’s bachelorette is more devious than just Bentlee? one person? i dont Think so. and thanks for your insults regarding my emotional well being,you do not know me at all it just goes to prove that i was right about this post and about you. i think u have issues with woman-kind and so does bentlee. or maybe u two are just in a bromance or lovers?!?!

        • August 3, 2011 at 10:05 pm

          Easy my sister. It’s only insulting if this site truly has that effect on you. If it doesn’t then no insult.

          If you start thinking about incentives of Bentley and producers you will begin to understand why Reality Steve (foremost reality TV expert) and Bentley Apologists think Bentley has been edited out of context.

          What does Bentley have to gain by being a jerk? Who goes on TV and says “I want to be a Jerk”. If Bentley had been that type of person he would have jumped at the chance at the fake invitation to the Men Tell All show. Now what have the producers gained from the Bentley show? Ratings! Bentley has been ratings gold for the show. The producers and Chris Harrison have much higher incentives to edit him than Bentley’s incentives for being a jerk.

          Take some time and read the edits blog post on this site. Turn the volume up and hear just a few examples of the type of edits the producers can do.

    Its funnier when someone else does it, especially on the tele.

    don’t worry about me Sarah, I dont have daughters on my own.
    My sister however, let me take care of her nieces on the weekend (she has 2) and I can tell you this, if they are as dumb as Ashley, then its their fault.
    Can’t blame a player, every man deserve to have fun in life. With that said, Im sorry you took my comment that away, but every guy deserve to spice up their life once or twice.
    Sure, I only been with 5 women so far in my life, but that Bentley dude… wow, he could atleast go for 50.

        Nobody is against marriage and being faithful, but if a certain woman offer herself, it would be against nature herself to deny her that right. Cheating is only Cheating if you get busted, I think its in the bible, im not sure though.

  11. November 23, 2011 at 5:53 am

    This is how sexist women are. Disgusting.

    If a woman did this people wouldn’t be saying all this crap about her that theyre saying about Bentley.

    It would NOT be a big deal to anyone if a woman said “oh i wish it was this bachelor instead etc etc”.

    Oh I forgot women are sacred beings in this society and deserve their asses kissed while men are nobodies.

    Where was all of this treatment twoard the abusive Shantel for physically assaulting a man last season?

    Oh I forgot, in this society women abusing is not assaults, its no big deal.

    Disgusting bunch of sick fcks.

    Man hurts a woman emotionally and women hate his guts. Women physically assaults man, and women CHEER.

    Sick.

    Final tally: Bentley made himself look like a monster on national TV, wasn’t brought back to be the Bachelor or appear on Bachelor Pad, inspired much-deserved loathing from people ranging to his ex-wife to fans and critics around the world, and has vanished back into obscurity.
    Ashley and JP just got married in a beautiful ceremony that’s about to be fully covered on ABC.
    Yeah, I admire your efforts to defend Bentley because everyone deserves an advocate, but in the Bentley/Ashley competition, it’s game over, he lost, end of story.
