Chris Soules' Confession About Ashley S. Leaves Us Officially Confused

Ashley Salter

A couple of days have passed since the second episode of The Bachelor aired, but fans of the show still can't stop talking about the crazy train that is Ashley Salter. OMG. Every season has its resident nut job, and clearly Ash has already snagged this title even though it's still early on. But after reading Chris Soules' new People blog, the question over whether or not Ashley is truly insane just got even more puzzling.


Here's what our dear farmer had to say about the chick who legitimately seemed to believe she was hunting down real zombies on the group date.

A lot of people have been asking me about her. They want to know if she is really that crazy. Ashley S. is definitely different. She's also beautiful. And sweet. And not that crazy. Did she say some things that were a little off-the-wall? Sure. She also said some things that made a lot of sense. It's not easy dating the same guy as your housemates and then having a bunch of cameras televise it. The experience was hard for her, and she expressed that to me. I really respected that, and because of that I was all for giving her a few extra chances.

Wow. If we didn't already know Chris is a genuine, stand-up dude, this pretty much confirms that we have nothing to worry about in terms of his character.

Not many guys would be able to not only put up with such bizarre behavior, but to also give the girl demonstrating it the benefit of the doubt over and over again. Based on his comments, it sounds like we'll have the pleasure of seeing Ashley for at least a few more episodes. (YES!)

But let's talk about the part where he flat out says that she's "not that crazy." Hmm. Was he on the same group date that we were watching at home? Sure, she may have simply been doing one hell of an acting job, but Ashley definitely came off as having a screw or two loose. Either ABC did some really clever editing, Chris was too drunk to notice that Ashley was acting weird, or he was too entranced by her good looks to pay attention to the nonsense coming out of her mouth.

It will be interesting to see what happens between these two next week, but something tells me Chris and Ashley's interactions are only going to get more weird as things progress.

Do you think Chris was stupid to keep Ashley?
