Ashley I made a surprising appearance on tonight’s episode of The Bachelor.
She came on the show for a very specific reason.
Kelsey Weier had been the emotional one throughout Peter Weber’s season and Ashley I came onto the show to tell her that it’s okay to share your feelings on national television.
As she was speaking, Tammy continued to make faces and roll her eyes. And while Ashley may not have noticed, Twitter did.
Ashley I praised for lifting Kelsey up
Ashley I is known for crying on The Bachelor and Bachelor In Paradise. In fact, she was labeled as the queen of tears and crying. But she was ready to pass the torch to Kelsey.
During her brief visit to The Bachelor, she told Kelsey that she was more than right in sharing her feelings on television.
She also gave Kelsey a huge bottle of champagne.

OMG ASHLEY I. IS HERE. I know she's not popular but she's got to be my #1 Bachelor contestant ever. She knew what she wanted, she refused to give up, and SHE FUCKING GOT IT. That is a true queen. All these whiny children cannot hold a candle to Ashley I. #thebachelor #thebachlor

Fans were also thrilled to see Ashley put Tammy in her place when she told Kelsey that she should never let anyone tell her how to feel or how to deal with her emotions.

Ashley won’t be on any more Bachelor-related shows, as she married Jared Haibon after pursuing him for years.
Ashley I’s husband calls out Bachelor franchise
When she was on the show tonight, Jared tweeted that she was no longer Ashley I — she was now Ashley H!
What’s up with this ‘Ashley I’ bullshit? It’s Ashley H!!!!!!

Of course, he was just kidding, but he brings up a great point. Ashley was the most emotional woman in the entire franchise and she was able to find love and get married to someone from the franchise.
Jared and Ashley I met on Bachelor In Paradise back in 2015, but Jared wasn’t ready to date Ashley. It would take them three years to make things official.
The two got engaged shortly after joking about being pregnant back in the summer of 2018. The proposal played out on Bachelor In Paradise, inspiring people who were on the show to find love that summer.
Watch the proposal here:
Since their proposal, the two went on to get married. The two shared their wedding video on their own YouTube page. The video shows that their wedding consisted of many Bachelor contestants, including Nick Viall and Dean Unglert.
Now, Ashley I and Jared have become one of the franchise’s super couples.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
