Bachelorette: Ashley is Over Bentley (dot, dot, dot)

At least Bentley Williams got a free trip to Hong Kong.

On The Bachelorette (the Bentley episode): Before Ashley can even explore the wonders of Hong Kong with any of the remaining men, she is blown away when Chris Harrison informs her that the mean-spirited Bentley has flown all this way to see her. Shocked, but hopeful that he is here to honestly compete for her heart, she goes to speak to him. Later that day, Ashley whisks Lucas off on a fairytale date. The couple walks the bustling streets of Hong Kong before sharing a romantic dinner on a vintage junk boat with the city's panoramic skyline as a backdrop. Things turn serious when Lucas tries to open up emotionally about his grueling divorce.

The next day Ashley welcomes six bachelors to famed Stanley Beach, where she charges them with participating in the ancient Chinese pastime of dragon boat racing. The men, now separated into three teams of two, must scour the streets of Hong Kong to recruit the rest of the necessary eight-man teams. The rag-tag squads compete in an intense and exhilarating battle that gets everyone's heart racing. And later that night, at an after party hearts race again as the men compete for Ashley's attention. One sensitive bachelor exchanges sweet kisses with her, another passionate guy makes his move in an elevator. J.P. meets up with Ashley at the city's legendary Victoria's Peak Park for a special individual date where their chemistry is undeniable. But Ashley's feelings for J.P. compel her to tell him about Bentley's surprise visit. And finally, Ashley, in an effort to be sincere and upfront, decides to tell her remaining bachelors about Bentley's visit at the cocktail party. But the news really doesn't sit well with them, including one extremely distressed suitor. After the confrontational turmoil of the cocktail party, Ashley is not sure what to expect at the rose ceremony. But now she believes that one of the six men she will take with her to enjoy Taiwan could be her future husband, as the time ticks down to the crucial hometown dates.

The remaining men are: 
Ames, 31, portfolio manager from New York, NY
Ben F., 28, winemaker from Sonoma, CA
Constantine, 30, restaurant owner from Atlanta, GA
J.P., 34, construction manager from New York, NY
Lucas, 30, oilfield equipment distributor from Odessa, TX
Ryan P, 31, solar energy executive from Corona Del Mar, CA
