Could Ashley and Jared go all the way on Bachelor in Paradise?
The two-part finale, which begins tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and continues on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT, will be the epic conclusion to a season full of heart-warming dates, and tear-jerking fights.
Ashley, more commonly known among fans as Kardashley, originally grabbed our attention on Chris Soules' season as the princess date-obsessed virgin, but, according to the Bachelor in Paradise star, that was all blown out of proportion.
"What I say about my portrayal in The Bachelor is I was a caricature of myself. The lashes, the makeup, the Kardashley thing -- It is all me but I go deeper than that, people," she said. "The virgin thing was brought up all the time. I was like those are some very individual characteristics of mine. I have a heart and soul people. I go beyond all that image stuff."
Ashley confessed that she has had a "completely different" experience on Paradise, than she did with Prince Farming. "On The Bachelor I had fun. That was a blast, the best month of my life. I liked Chris. I was really just attracted to him. It was really physical," she spilled. "Here it went a lot deeper and it was a lot more emotions involved."
Although Paradise has allowed her to wade deeper into the dating pool, the reality TV star has never serious relationship before. "I am so, so picky," she said. "I am not going to just date someone because I want to have a boyfriend. I need to be really into him and all the guys I have been really into, they don't really feel like committing in general to me."
So did Ashley I. find love in paradise? "I definitely found some intense like," the brunette beauty spilled to ET. "Here it went a lot deeper and it was a lot more emotions involved."
As for the topic of her virginity, Ashley teased on the show that Jared could be the one: "Jared is one of the very few guys I've ever met who I'd be excited about taking my virginity," she said.
