'The Bachelorette' Finale: Chrystie Corns Under Fire
Monday night's Bachelorette finale generated the usual comments about the outcome of the show, its participants and opinions on the series in general, but it was Ashley Hebert's sister Chrystie Corns who received the brunt of negative comments.
During the finale episode, Corns raked suitor J.P. Rosenbaum over the coals when he met her family and advised Hebert against settling down with him. She said, "I don't see it. I think you're too much for him. I think you're too young and I think you're too spunky and he's just kind of a little bit older and a little bit more demure."
Corns, who appeared on TLC's Extreme Couponing in May, knew she was going to be cast as the bad guy once the final edit was in. She tweeted recently, "Remind me to turn off Google Alerts for my name after next week's Bachelorette episode...fear it's going to be Baaad!" Earlier Monday, she wrote, "Very happy about the fact that I'll be teaching a coupon class when the Bachelorette comes on tonight."
And she was correct in predicting negative reviews.
Season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky wrote of Corns, "Oh my gosh!!! I am Sooo angry at Ashley's sister. She had NO RIGHT to treat JP the way she did. Hold your head high JP."
Jessdebolt wrote, "Ashley's sister must be a professional interrogator."
@tinkfan25: "Christie might have been right with her reactions. But she should have put it a different way and not been so harsh."
@BP503If someone with Ashley's sister's tattoos posed as an authority on making good decisions, I laugh my nuggets off. Kudos Ben. #bachelorette."
Corns aside, The Bachelorette finale also received comments from Zach Braff and Michael Moore. Braff joked, "I wish I could somehow get the sharks from shark week to swim over to The Bachelorette"
Moore weighed in: "All this news about the debt ceiling vote 2nite has ruined the last episode of The Bachelorette 4 me. Then she went & picked the wrong guy!"
