Ashley Iaconetti Assists Matt James in His Search for Love on 'The Bachelor'
There to help! Beloved Bachelor Nation star Ashley Iaconetti stops by “The Bachelor” next week to assist Matt James in his search for love.
As seen in a new teaser, shared by “Entertainment Tonight” on Friday, Ashley presides over a group date inspired by host Chris Harrison’s romance novel “The Perfect Letter.” The women — including such standout contestants as Rachael Kirkconnell, Kit Keenan, Bri Springs, Anna Redman, and Queen Victoria Larson, among others — are challenged to write their own “love story” with Matt and then share it in front of a live audience.
Ashley begins by reading an excerpt from Chris’ steamy book, which she says involves “a lot of sex” — a piece of information that seems to make some contestants nervous.
“This is going to be very uncomfortable for everybody,” Bri tells the camera, while Anna adds, “Telling him what it would be like with me? Yeah, that's intimidating.”
However, the ever so bold Victoria seems to be in her element as she recites an expletive-filled tale to Ashley.
“And then she pushed him onto his back so she could [bleep] his [bleep] because she needed him [bleep] at that very moment,” the Los Angeles native reads from her journal prior to hitting the stage.
“Oh, wow. You’re going to make an impression, I’ll tell you that,” Ashley says in astonishment, to which Victoria earnestly replies, “I hope.”
In a Friday Instagram post, Chris shared his enthusiasm at Ashley making a cameo at Farmington, Pennsylvania’s Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (where the entirety of “The Bachelor” Season 25 was filmed inside of a coronavirus-free bubble).
“Well look who showed up to help @mattjames919 find love!” he captioned a photo from the episode, before joking: “For the record @ashley_iaconetti didn’t cry once in the making of this episode.”
