Ashley Hebert, the star of The Bachelorette, has denied that she is 'insecure', reports People Magazine. Ashley Hebert appeared on the last series of 'The Bachelor', but failed to win the heart of Brad Womack, who eventually chose EMILY MAYNARD as his potential bride.
Herbert, who began her search for love on last week's 'Bachelorette' premiere, claims she is now a far more confident person, saying, "A misconception people have when they watched the show is that I'm insecure. I am so secure and confident and a lot of what happened between Brad and me brought out some weird side of me that doesn't define who I am". Monday's season premiere saw Hebert introduced to the 25 hopefuls that are looking to win her heart. Among the potential suitors was 'Tim', a contestant who was shown the door for being too drunk, and 'Jeff', a man who insisted on wearing a mask in order to conceal his looks. The new season, which continues tonight (30th May 2011), will see Hebert travelling to a number of international destinations including Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Fiji in her search for love. The 26-year-old said, "People will be surprised with what they see. I think it's a season people are going to get attached to and want to know what happens".
Ashley Hebert, a dental student from Madawaska, Maine, was eliminated during week nine of last season's 'The Bachelor'.
