Interesting Trumps Likeability

People like to rag on Bentley. Apparently he doesn’t come across (on the show at least), as the most likeable guy in the world. But guess what, he’s mysterious, he’s intriguing, and you just get the sense that there is a lot more there and you want to know more. In short, he’s interesting. So people shouldn’t be annoyed or surprised that Ashley kept him around. If he’s interesting to us after a few minutes in front of the camera, he’s definitely interesting to her.

There are lots of people who may not come across as the most likeable people in the world – Trump, Lance Armstrong, Donald Rumsfeld. But these are all interesting people, they captivate us and hold our attention no matter what they are saying or doing. They matter.

You know who is not interesting? Contestants Chris M., Frank, Jon, and Rob. Likeable guys sure, but because interesting trumps likeability, they didn’t get a rose.

      Sorry, but it’s not “honorable” to lead a woman on when you KNOW you’re not into her. I don’t care if the guy thought it would make for good TV or not. He’s got a daughter. Would he like someone treating her like that someday? I bet not. If he’d rather “swim in pee” then do the honorable thing and reject the rose, and don’t come into the room and literally sweep her off her feet. Give me a break.

        Um they been on two dates (with +7 other dudes on the date) and have probably spent a total of 2 hrs total together at best. Um, when is that ever leading a girl on?

      Really?? Jer, I’m glad you are proud that he had water in his glass…….but, he was also the only one who said extremely rude and crude things about Ashley. So, I guess it’s okay to act like an immature and arrogant man-boy, and laugh about how you are going to break someone’s heart…..but you are still a “good person” if you have water in your glass. Whatever, you guys all the same. You profess to be Christian but ignore his most important teachings…..what are the first 2 great commandments??

        Goldy, babe it’s a tv show. They are trying to get ratings and they have edited the heck out of him. Next time you watch notice this editing trick. Every time something horrible is said, it’s always an audio clip played over footage. This is because it’s unrelated footage but sounds horrible with the shown footage. They ask these people 1MM questions and they cut and splice answers to make ratings. Is this your first time watching the show?

    NotReality – Yes, it is the first time watching the show. You may be right and I am willing to consider that, but it just seems hard to believe that his whole arrogant, jerky persona is simply a result of editing. However, I shouldn’t be so quick to judge and I am obviously not aquainted with him in real life (thank heavens) so I will try to refrain from making any more comments. Thanks.

    • seriously?!

      NotReality- I will agree that there is a lot of editing going on, however, he still said things that make him look like a jerk no matter how it is edited. He is arrogant and cocky with or without the editing.

        Congratulations. This is the first thing you ever posted that is true. But with hair like that how can you blame him for his arrogance or cockiness? Glad to see your enjoying the blog.

      Thanks for being open Goldy. It’s the truth. He might be cocky but he is not a jerk.
