Bar Smith of Teen Mom 2 fame held a poll asking whether fans of the show thought Ashley accepts his proposal after the scene aired during the first episode of the new season.
During the first episode of Season 11, fans watched as Ashley and Bar celebrated their fifth anniversary with a solo trip to Pismo Beach in California. The couple shares a daughter, three-year-old Holly, who stayed with Ashley’s mom, Tea, during their trip.
Before their trip, Bar talked to a friend on the phone about his plans to propose to Ashley. Bar’s longtime girlfriend recently received some flak about joining the cast of Teen Mom 2, but told her haters, “Don’t watch then.”
