For those out of the loop: Bentley told Ashley that he felt obligated to return to his young daughter, and then told the cameras that she wasn't his type, and that he "would rather be swimming in pee than trying to plan a wedding with her." From the beginning of the season, Williams was very open about wishing that Emily Maynard -- the winner of The Bachelor, season 15 -- would have been chosen as the Bachelorette.
Never ones to miss an opportunity for awkwardness, three weeks after Bentley's departure, the Bachelorette producers flew him to Hong Kong, where he surprised a pining Hebert with a visit that aired on last night's episode. The two then had a face-to-face meeting
Before the meeting, a hopeful Hebert admitted, "I still feel the same way I did when he left: really excited if there was potential or if he felt the same way." But soon enough, it was clear: He felt the same way.
"I implore you to do all you can to see what you have here, I guess," he said.
"So this is our period," she replied, to which he said, "Maybe we should call it a period."
Hebert proceeded to angrily chew him out for leading her on, and challenged his motives for the final sit-down. "So you came all the way here, when you could have just talked to me on the phone?" But the overall effect was that of a conversation crafted for the cameras. Hebert knew that she had to give him a piece of her mind, and she dutifully did so. Later, after he'd gone, Hebert went further. "Bentley, if you're watching this, F*** you," she told the cameras. "I'm done with you."
Keep in mind: Ashley sent Bentley that message without even seeing what he had really been saying behind her back to the cameras. We have a feeling that if he actually shows up to the reunion show, Ashley dishing a couple of curse words will only be the tip of the iceberg. We'll be watching!
