'The Bachelorette': Five Things That Got Us Through This Season

The Bachelorette proposalThe season finale has come and gone. Ashley is happy with JP, Chris Harrison is still utterly cool and Groban is probably sitting in a dinghy with a lone cameraman on the outskirts of Fiji wondering how it all went wrong. It's been a tough season of 'The Bachelorette,' but we prevailed thanks to the following top five things that got us through this season:

1. Drinking games
Anyone who decided to take a shot when Ashley mentioned "Bentley," "amazing" or "journey" will probably be sloshed until next Monday when they start a new drinking game during 'Bachelor Pad.'

2. Ames
He is just darling. A little on the odd side, sure, but about as charming as the Ralph Lauren Polo ads his family poses for each new season. Anyone who can wear red pants like that certainly has my vote for Mr. Congeniality of the season.

3. Ashley's wardrobe
It was nice to know that when things got boring with the episode, we always had Ashley's fashion choices to look forward to. Most were either a vivid celebration straight from the wardrobe department of any John Hughes movie or last year's sale items from Forever XXI. It's as if the clothes were a character of the show, and I appreciated that immensely.

4. Groban, Greek Groban ... The Groban Fellowship ... Grobai
Groban and Greek Groban proved to be stand up guys. I admired the way the other Groban was rejected with such grace and dignity. I'm sure he's turned down ABC's offer to be the next Bachelor numerous times. And I feel a certain vineyard and Italian restaurant will both get a little extra publicity push in the coming months. Win/win for everyone. OPA!

5. REO Speedwagon video montages
What more could you ask for than a love montage set to the tune of 'I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore.' It's classy. It's American. It's pure brilliance.

I agree Debbie, she was obnoxious. I didn't even watch the last few episodes because she was too annoying. I swear that whole Bentley thing............I thought she would NEVER stop saying his name. She is too clingy and needy. Her and JP will be broke up in 6 months. Worst Bachelorette ever!!!

ASHLEY WAS THE WORST OF ALL THE BACHELORS AND BACHELORETTES!! HER WHINING AND CRYING EVERY EPISODE WAS HORRIBLE. SHE WAS SO INSECURE--BOTH LAST SEASON AND THIS SEASON. SHE CERTAINLY DOESN'T REPRESENT WOMEN VERY WELL AND THE SHOW THIS SEASON WAS BORING.
