UPDATED: Meet Ashley, the Roanoke girl kicked off The Bachelor
She loves Dr. Seuss and Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Last season on The Bachelor, professional shirt-repeller and D-FW native Sean Lowe was the star of ABC’s show. This season the bachelor is not from the area, but one of the women competing to win his heart hails from North Texas.
[SPOILER ALERT UPDATE: Ashley didn’t make it past the first episode. We wish her well.]
On the first episode of the season, which aired Monday night, new bachelor Venezuelan soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis met the nearly two-dozen women who will go through the highs and lows of being in a reality dating competition as they try to maintain their dignity and express their admiration to a man they barely know in order to hopefully receive an engagement ring on the last episode.
Oh love, what a beautiful thing.
Here are some things we learned through ABC about Ashley, a grade-school teacher who calls Roanoke her hometown. She is a 25-year-old who counts basketball, football and baseball as her favorite sports. (Sadly, she didn’t name soccer.)
However, Ashley seems like a hard worker, because in the hypothetical scenario of being stranded on a desert island and able to bring only three things, she didn’t choose the easy way out, like an unlimited supply of drinking water and food. Nope, she wants a machine to turn saltwater into drinking water, and flint. Yes, flint, to be able to cook for her soul mate, which is the the third thing she would bring to the island if given the chance.
Other than water, Ashley also enjoys a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, which is one of the reasons she loves Thanksgiving and fall. Does this Texas gal like to go camping? It depends, only if it’s two to four days, max.
As her favorite author, she names Dr. Seuss, which seems like a cop-out being a teacher and all, but in one of her answers she quotes Oscar Wilde, so I guess that’s something.
Here’s a photo of Juan Pablo when he was a contestant on The Bachelorette. Good luck, Ashley, this is what you get to take if you are ever stranded on a desert island … and if you win.
There you go, world, now you know Ashley a bit better. I guess we’ll have to wait to see what Juan Pablo thinks.
