Do Wells & Ashley Have Sex During 'Bachelor In Paradise'? The Fantasy Suite Doesn't Always Mean Hooking Up
As much as I adore Wells, the main Bachelor in Paradise promo had me wary as he asked Ashley I. if a baby has ever been created in Paradise. Although he has many other women interested in him, will Ashley and Wells have sex on Bachelor in Paradise ? With the show coming to an end on Sept. 6 (say it ain't so!), Fantasy Suites are going to be up for grabs, so it is possible — though very, very unlikely — that Ashley could lose her virginity to Wells on Bachelor in Paradise. But, let's be real — the chances of this going down are as likely as Josh not eating a slice of pizza in Paradise, so I think it's safe to say that Ashley and Wells do not end up as a couple and do not have sex in the Fantasy Suite.
First things first, if Ashley chose to have sex with Wells in the Fantasy Suite, I'd support her decision. Plus, it's not even my place — or any of Bachelor Nation's — to have an opinion about what she chooses to do or not do with her body. While Canadian Daniel was obsessed with the fact that Ashley is a virgin, she has spoken at length about why this has been her life choice at this point. She's waiting for a man who she really cares about to share that experience with — and though she hasn't had much success in her romantic life since Ashley's time on Chris' season of The Bachelor came to an end, her stance on the subject of intimacy hasn't changed, which is pretty admirable.
However, regardless of either Ashley or Wells' sexual status, I don't think that these two will be headed to the Fantasy Suite, let alone having sex in it. While the promo for Bachelor in Paradise made it seem like the pair was really going to hit it off, Aug. 29's episode showed that Ashley was really the only choice for Wells to go on a date with when he arrived in Paradise, thanks to some prompting from the rest of the cast. Wells clarified on Bachelor in Paradise on Aug. 30 that he did think Ashley was the most beautiful woman in Paradise, so he was legitimately interested in her beyond the group's not-so-gentle nudges. Their taco-themed date went well — despite that whole favorite band talk (I'm glad you introduced the younger viewing audience to David Byrne too, Wells) — and Ashley claimed to have more sexual chemistry with Wells than she ever had with Jared.
Yet, not everything was meant to be as their paper lantern wishes went up in flames. Jami showed up the next day and went on a date with Wells. Ashley busied herself with inspiring Caila — and thus, her beloved Jared — to leave Paradise. As if that wasn't enough, Shushanna showed up next to take Wells on a date. All of this left Wells very confused. Also, doesn't Wells know he should just be dating me?! (Sorry, fiancé.)
While Wells is dating three women right now, which is his prerogative being on Bachelor in Paradise and all, he doesn't seem like the type of guy who would date three women and then have sex with one of them — especially not the one who is waiting to have sex until she's in a meaningful relationship and is as emotional as Ashley is. I also don't think Ashley, who has actively chosen to wait to have sex until she feels it is right, would decide that a torn Wells would be the right person to do that with. And, while she may say she's "over" Jared in her talking-head commentary, I think deep down she must know that she can't be 100 percent over him in such a short span of time.
As I'm not even certain that Wells will give his rose to Ashley at the next rose ceremony, I most definitely don't think that anything will be happening in the Fantasy Suite between these two. Although Wells did make a comment about how it was odd for Jared to talk about kissing Ashley while sitting near him during After Paradise, I don't think that equates to the pair having sex on the show. Of course, if they did, I would hope it would be a happy and healthy experience for both of them (in the words of George Michael from Arrested Development, I'd want it to be a "fun, sexy time" for them). But, based on all of the chaos that is surrounding Wells in Paradise, don't expect to see these two getting down in the Fantasy Suite during the final episodes of Bachelor in Paradise.
