Ryan Bowers was confident. He loved writing notes. His hair was a little wacky and we have no idea what was up with that white tank top, but he was a handsome dude. He drove all the guys in The Bachelorette Season 8 house crazy with his sweet-talking, but while he was being driven away in Croatia, he was worried about coming across as “an arrogant ass.” Do you think he’s just a guy with high self-esteem — or was he indeed an ass?

Emily Maynard said he wasn’t a bad guy and his playful side always made her laugh, but she was worried he wanted a perfect “trophy” wife and she didn’t want to always have to be perfect. She would also have put “loving family” at the top of her wish list in a perfect husband, and Ryan’s wife list included terms like loyal, logical, confident, magnetic, assertive, loves to laugh, unselfish, beautiful and sexy personality. The guys in the house found Emily’s personality very sexy when she dumped Ryan — and it was probably the right call for her — but do you like Ryan as a person? Do you think he seems like a decent guy, just maybe came on a little too strong with too much self-love? It’s not like he was really a “villain” … unless he seemed villainous to you?
