Say what you will about what AshLee Frazier actually did when she showed up on The Bachelor’s “Women Tell All” special on March 4, 2013. The Season 17 lady was an early fan — and Sean Lowe — favorite on the show, and had an unceremoniously awkward departure when Sean cut her in Thailand. Her return to the small screen brought more stomach-twisting, collar-pulling, and must-look-away moments. She accused Sean of telling her that Catherine and Lindsay meant nothing, and whether you believe her or Sean, you have to admit: girlfriend looked good.

Okay, so if we had to go back and face the guy who dumped us mid-fantasy future dreams state, we would hire a personal trainer, a liposuction-ist (yep), and possibly hire Jennifer Aniston to play us in the real life version of our reality return. Instead, AshLee painted on a Herve Leger colorblock dress, stopped by her colorist, and put all of her organizational focus into looking the hottest of all of Sean’s exes.

With her newly ombre hair (how did it grow that fast???), perfect Connie Britton-esque waves, and glowing skin, we can’t imagine a better return. You know, other than the part where she and Sean divided Bachelor Nation in opinion on who was telling the truth in Thailand... But we’re just one giant fangirl machine. What do you think: did you prefer AshLee’s straight bob and more neutral color palate on the show, or is her new beachy look blowing you away? Weigh in below.
