Guess who’s baaaaaaaaackkk! Bentley comes to Hong Kong. The hotel they are staying in is pretty sweet. These 8 guys left have had an awesome ride so far!
Immediately Chris walks in and tells Ashley that Bentley is in the building in Hong Kong!!! Crazy! I am speechless at this point…(almost) I mean wow. The cut to commercial break with no sound was priceless. Whoever thought of that is a genius… clearly I am not because I just had to spell check how to spell genius.
Ashley tells Chris that she still feels the same way about Bentley and that she might not be able to move on until she gets closure. She then walks to his room. They kiss and then repeat each other for a few awkward moments.
They start to dig in a little and he is not making eye contact at all. He is just playing with this poor girls heart just like we all thought. She is really, really stupid for playing along yes, but he is really laying it on thick. I actually thought it would be funny to see him come back, but now I am kind of pissed at him. F#%K you Bentley is right. Can’t believe ABC aired that – but more power to them and her.
Bentley is definitely not a “Man Code man”. It’s probably why he’s a single dad. I just wrote a whole damn book on guys like him and am going to send it to Ash for free! She clearly needs a little help. www.mancodebook.com Read the rest of this entry »
Heading North to Chiang Mai! Pretty awesome place to get to visit! Its so beautiful and so full of history you just don’t get to see that everyday. Super cool place for ABC to go!
I like Ben F. and I think him an Ash have got pretty good chemistry going on. Their date during the day was cool and they got to see some once-in-a-lifetime things, but I thought it got real awkward when they started talking about kissing but couldn’t actually do it because it was in front of some religious temple. So they made a mental kiss…lol.
Ben and Ash’s dinner was incredible! ABC is stepping up the game once again. It is crazy to me how much work is going into this show. I really hope they both appreciate what they are getting to do because it really is once-in-a-lifetime stuff. They talked about some really deep things, and Ash got to see another side of Ben, which she really seemed to like it and she gave him the rose. They finally got their kiss while these crazy fire-breathing dudes and dancing fire ladies surrounded them. Have no clue what they are called but it was cool. Read the rest of this entry »
Although Bentley left last week already at the very beginning of this episode I feel like he is far from forgotten. Ashley has already dropped his name 20 times. I can see this is going to be an issue moving forward already.
However to help get over him they are all traveling Phunket, Thailand which should definitely help.
The first date is a one-on-one date is sailing with Constantine. However its not as grand as it may seem because it is raining and super windy so they are forced to cancel.
They try and make the best of it though by walking around town, shopping and drinking beer….sounds ok to me actually. At the end of the night they have a nice dinner on the beach where he pours his heart out to Ash and it must have worked because he gets the rose. Read the rest of this entry »
Here we go again and right from the jump Ben C. gets one on one date. I like Ben. Seems like nice guy and a good fit for Ashley from what I have seen so far. The date was terribly awkward though. REALLY awkward and I felt bad for him. He handled it good though. Dancing like that had to be embarrassing.
This group date to roast Ashley could end up super bad. Ashley says she can handle being roasted, but not sure by a bunch of guys trying to win her heart. A guy would really have to be careful during this roast. Ryan P….I like him, but he reminds of Jake a lot. Could end up being weird, creepy and kind a socially awkward. We will see.
William…William…holy cow you idiot! MAJOR FAIL MY FRIEND. This kind a reminded me of the game we played on the Bachelor Pad and every single girl in the house was crying after it. The guys handled it fine and laughed it off but the girls really took it to heart kind a like Ashley did here. William really took it to far though. I know it’s a roast but you have to think of the situation my friend.
I felt bad for her after that but Bentley came in and really played that to his advantage. Great play bud! I think Ashley is really falling for him and to be honest they do seem to be very relaxed around each other. Read the rest of this entry »
This week started out with William receiving the first one-on-one date. They went to Vegas and their date was a little awkward but I don’t think that was really his fault. He was put into a pretty weird spot with the wedding cakes, ring selection and the chapel visit. He seemed kind a nerdy, but I thought for what he was put through, he handled himself ok.
The dinner in the fountains was pretty rad! That is a memory neither of them will ever forget. They both talked about their fathers and alcoholism – which was actually pretty touching and they both seemed comfortable talking with each other about it.
William won his rose!
The group date was ok. A dance off with the losers being sent home and the remaining guys staying to perform for thousands in a live show with the JabbaWockeeZ. Ashley really stole the show here and looked good doing it!
Its clear she has been putting in some serious work. Ashley’s body is really tight. Good for her! Tonight’s episode added a little sexiness to Ashley that I feel like she was lacking. I am kind a tired of the cute “everyone’s sweetheart” girl. I really liked to see some sexy “I might be a little trouble and surprise you in a few ways girl”! Read the rest of this entry »
The Bachelorette is back! Season #7 and the lucky lady is Ashley Herbert. I personally like her and think she is pretty cute. I also feel like she is ready to find love, especially after getting her heart broke on The Bachelor. I thought Kiptyn had the whitest teeth since Wesley Snipes, but Ash takes the cake now! Pearly Whites!
Chris never seems to age! I think he found the fountain of youth and is not sharing with your boy here because I just got 3 more grey hairs typing this sentence
Its fun to see these guys get out of the limo and how they handle the pressure. Its pretty nerve racking… let me tell you. I still remember what an ass I made of myself getting out of the limo, but hey it worked to get the first impression rose haha. Some of these guys did very well and were very creative. Made me laugh pretty hard. Read the rest of this entry »
At a recent convention I was speaking at I was asked a good question. The question was “why do I think sports are such an important part of raising a mancode man and can a child not involved in sports become a mancode man.” The lady was very sarcastic in her question and later on let me know that she thinks a lot of sports are to “barbaric” and foster a competitive nature that is unhealthy.
To answer the 2nd question. Yes a child can grow to be a mancode man without sports. I do however think that sports can teach a kid a lot of very valuable lessons, which is why I talk about sports, competition and the value of this for kids in my book.
Her opinion of kids sports being “barbaric” I felt was a little out there especially when she used Basketball as one of the sports she thought was “barbaric.” It is still mind boggling to me that these type of people exist and are able to function on a day-to-day basis. I don’t remember every single thing that I said to her in our little debate but I will try and defend my point to everyone out there who thinks kids should not play sports for whatever reason.

I received a letter in the mail yesterday about a lawsuit filed against TQL – a company I used to work for – and Mr. Oaks (the owner) seeking to recover allegedly unpaid overtime compensation.
This came as a big surprise to me, to say the least. I don’t think there is a person at the company, or that has ever worked at TQL that does not know what they are getting into when they start there. TQL does a great job and puts everyone through hours and hours of training to give them an idea of the time and effort it takes to be successful within the organization. You have plenty of time through this training to make a decision whether or not you want to pursue a career here.
The main reason I felt compelled to voice my opinion is because I have worked at this company, and been through the process. It was also because of Ken Oaks and his company that I was able to earn enough money to build a very successful foundation for a 25-year old hillbilly from Ohio.
I watched Mr. Oaks build his company from the ground up, just as I watched my father do the same at his. Its men like this that have worked countless hours and god knows how much “overtime” to build something that benefits not just themselves, but the local community, and now thousands of people across the country.
TQL is a company that puts food on the table for SO many families. And, the company donates their time and money to assist the local community as well.
After everything he (Mr. Oaks) has done, a couple of chumps who lacked the testicular fortitude to make it in such a demanding work environment - which also happens to be a state-of-the-art, air conditioned building that contains a gym, cafeteria, men’s/women’s locker rooms, an always evolving tech staff that keeps the latest of technology at everyone’s finger tips (and literally gives you everything and anything you need to be successful to grow, not only your business but as a person in general) [SUCH a strain “oh jeez my back hurts thinking about it”]. Like I said, Mr. Robert Hendricks, Scott Spitler, and whatever other goons plus the “No Count SOB’s” that work at MEIZLISH & GRAYSON think it is ok to sue for unpaid overtime?
This is the root problem we have in America right now and the reason our country is in the state it’s in, and also the main reason I wrote my book, “The Man Code” – which I’ll gladly send copies to Robert, Scott and you shiny red-nosed clowns at MEIZLISH & GRAYSON because YOU are the real problem here.
Freeloading people like you looking for a cheap buck because you’re too damn lazy to earn it. What is wrong with our country and the fact that someone can even sue for such a stupid thing is mind boggling to me! Were you chained to the desk or could you quit at anytime???? If you did not think you were being treated fairly then you should have just quit and found another job.
Men like my father and Ken Oaks work their entire lives to build something great that benefits way more than just them. Sorry ass two-faced men like Scott, Robert and the circus clowns at MEIZLISH & GRAYSON try and take advantage of our messed up system (I’m sure these guys voted for Obama too because lord knows he’s all about the handouts) that is our government.
I don’t condone bullying at all! But the fact is: “if good men don’t stand up for what is right evil will prevail”! So, if you see any of these people (they are easy to spot: usually big shiny red noses and colorful outfits. Ie: clown paraphernalia) while you’re out, feel free to give them a piece of your mind for me.
Scott, Robert and the circus clowns at MEIZLICK & GAYSON – in all seriousness, from the bottom of my heart and from all the business owners and hard-working Americans out there GO F*&K YOURSELVES and please feel free to contact me if you would like. I’m not hard to find!

Timing Is Everything.
You hear this saying a lot but I really feel like its true. As I look back on certain breaks and loses in my life it really does have to do with timing and being in the right place at the right time.
That being said I think the biggest part of timing is being ready when you’re called upon. I believe each one of us gets breaks or has good “timing” or in the right place at the right time whatever you want to call it but the trick is being ready when your time is called upon. Being ready to take advantage of good timing is the key that can make or break a lot of people and I see lots of people miss great opportunities that could literally change their whole lives because they are more or less going through the motions of life and not always looking to be “in the right place at the right time.”
The more I study and look at the successful people I know in my life the more I realize that’s what a lot of them have done. Set themselves up to be in the right place at the right time and then taken advantage of that time and place. Whether it’s my favorite athletes Jordan and Tiger to successful business owners and movie stars I know.
The one thing most of these people have in common is putting themselves in these positions through hard work and smart moves. My quote I always use for this is funny but true…”the harder I work the luckier everyone else seems to think I am.” Its just silly and or jealousy to think that any of these people are just lucky though.

The Finale! 2 girls one dude.
It was good to see Brads family and his reaction to them. I actually got a little emotional about that. It’s hard to explain but I know what he is going through and anyone who has been on the show for longer than a few weeks will tell you. It’s a weird thing but being on this show and being away from your family and friends really makes you realize what really matters in your life and I’m not saying that in a douchebag way.
Think about taking away your phone, your computer, you’re TV, your magazines, your newspapers and shutting yourself off from the outside world and the things we take for granted everyday. Then go on an emotional rollercoaster with people you have never met before as the only ones to confide in. I did not miss my car or my motorcycle or my big screen or any material possessions I own. I missed my family and friends and just wanted to jump into a pile of hugs when I saw them for the first time. That’s what was coming out of Brad when he saw his family. If you haven’t been there its hard to explain. Read the rest of this entry »
