Ashley’s Bachelorette ends, and as Ben said, “I guess that’s it”

The Bachelorette ended with a proposal and an acceptance as Ashley Hebert picked JP, despite her sister’s advice, and let him propose as she stood silently and who cares this was an awful, awful season even with the producers’ bullshit manufactured drama.

Ashley was a terrible choice as far as interesting television is concerned, and this season was a total dud. Before Ben took his boat ride of shame, and before Ashley awkwardly chased after him shouting nice things about him to try to make him feel better, he said, “I guess that’s it.” Yes, mercifully, it is.
