I love the Iaconetti sisters. I'm waiting for them to get their own reality show spinoff. One of the reasons I love Lauren and Ashley Iaconetti is because they're not afraid to cry on Bachelor in Paradise . Some people choose to criticize the women for being emotional on shows like The Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise, but I think that in reality, their emotions are the most real thing about the reality show. Plus, would we rather sit around for three hours a week watching Bachelor in Paradise with people smiling the entire time, or would we rather watch someone cry? Let's really prioritize here.
I sympathize with Ashley and Lauren, because I know that if I were on a reality show, I would develop some habit that would be extremely exploited by the producers of the show. The good news? Ashley I., who got quite the reputation as a frequent cryer on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor, has a very good sense of humor about her habit of crying (and yes, it is a habit). Not only does she acknowledge that she cries a lot, but she also makes fun of herself for it. Which is totally admirable, and pretty hilarious.
In honor of Lauren leaving and Ashley crying, here is a roundup of the best Iaconetti cries.
And then, there's this.
Iaconetti sisters, you rock. Don't ever change.
