Ashley S. Confirmed 'Bachelor In Paradise' Is In Her Future (Well, Mostly Anyway) Making All Our Dreams Come True

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for on Monday night's Bachelor finale. No, not the proposal. No, not the announcement of who's the next Bachelorette. On After The Final Rose, Ashley S. basically confirmed that she's going to be on Bachelor in Paradise, and it's the best news ever.

I knew something wonderful was going to happen as soon as I realized Ashley was in the audience, and then, it happened. Once again, Chris Harrison brought up the invitation he issued her at Women Tell All last Monday to appear on Paradise, and this time, Ashley gave a way more committal answer. "I mean, I suppose I might be there," she said, which is all the confirmation I need. She may as well be packing her bags as she speaks, because my favorite Bachelor contestant in the history of the show is officially returning to television!

And even if Ashley doesn't find love, it's still going to be phenomenal. I can't wait to see her completely stump the rest of the Bachelor Nation folks on the show, and to see people react to her who totally have no idea what to expect. Maybe there will be cats. Maybe this time they'll reply when Ashley talks to them.

This is both good news and bad news. It's good news because Ashley is gold. It's bad news because now I have to watch Bachelor in Paradise,which I totally didn't want to do. But it'll totally be worth it as long as Ashley and her words of wisdom (and various onion/pomegranate shaped items) are there. Can't wait!
