As anyone who watched a few minutes of Chris Soules’s season of The Bachelor — or who’s currently subjecting themselves to three hours of Bachelor in Paradise each week — knows that Ashley I., the Kardashian lookalike from New Jersey, is a crier. Like, a professional crier. Give her a situation and she’ll find a way to cry about it. Granted, this season on BIP has done plenty to make Ashley emotional. First, her sister, who she brought along for emotional support, up and left Paradise because she felt that it was actually “Hell.” (Smart girl.) And then Jared — the scruffy restaurant manager from Rhode Island and total love of Ashley I.’s life — seemed completely oblivious to her very existence until recently.
All of that has meant one thing: tears, and lots of ‘em! And Ashley doesn’t just cry, she turns it into a kind of art, so we didn’t want to let the season end without giving the girl a shout-out for her 10 most inspired performances. Brava!
