Chris Harrison says Bentley almost shut down 'Bachelorette' production
If youâ€™ve seen â€œThe Bacheloretteâ€ this season, chances are good that youâ€™ve muttered some choice expletives at the TV screen as Bentley, the 28-year-old dad from Utah, goes about the business of breaking Ashleyâ€™s heart while insulting her behind her back. But why on earth is he so determined to be such a royal jerk on national TV? That was the question presented to host Chris Harrison on Wednesday during a conference call. Though heâ€™s as in the dark as the rest of us (â€œI donâ€™t know what his end game was or what his motivations were,â€ Harrison admitted), he had plenty to say about the man who almost grounded this season of â€œThe Bachelorette.â€
On a lighter note, Harrison mentioned there will be one more big event on Monday's episode:Â Jeff, the 35-year-old "Masked Man" will (gasp!) remove his mask. "The joke went on a little too long, and it almost took over the person he is,"Â Harrison said. "It's another big bomb being dropped on the show. It's ironic that the guy wanted to Ashley to see him for who he was, but by the time he takes it off, I think he doesn't know he he is anymore."
"The Bachelorette" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
