Why Ashley Hebert Thinks Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Will Win The Bachelorette 2012 — Exclusive
If there’s anyone who gets the tough decisions Emily Maynard has ahead of her, it’s former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert. According to Reality Steve, only three men are left standing in the quest for Emily’s hand in marriage: Jef Holm, Sean Lowe and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. According to several inside sources, Arie – a dashing Indy Car driver who shares a love of racing with Emily – is the current favorite to win. For her part, Ashley seems to agree. At the fifth anniversary party for the entertainment blog MicahJesse.com, Ashley and fiancée JP Rosenbaum chatted with us about their thoughts on the upcoming season.
Wetpaint Entertainment: First things first. The two of you are getting ready to move from New York City to the suburbs of New Jersey. What are you looking forward to the most? Ashley: Probably just a little peace and quiet. It will be great to walk outside and see grass and trees. JP: She’s looking forward to bulk shopping. Ashley: Oh, yes! I want to go to Costco and Sam’s Club, he’s right! Also, I want to drive our car to Starbucks. I want to drive all day, everywhere.
Ashley, on your blog, you wrote that you think Arie will win this season. What makes you think so? I think so based on the photos and his bio. I think people are naturally attracted to someone who’s kind of similar to them. [Emily and Arie] grew up in the same world. So from what I know, which isn’t very much so take this with a big grain of salt, I have a feeling that’s what’s going to happen.
JP, do you agree? I don’t know. I’ve looked at the pictures of the guys, but I haven’t read any of their bios, yet. But I don’t think they mean anything. My picture was awful and my bio was lame and just look how we turned out. So I don’t have a frontrunner. It will be interesting to see what happens.
