Ashley, 26, was in tears after she was told she was the next contestant to leave the ABC reality dating show - which is presented by Chris Harrison - after her South Africa date with Brad proved to be a disaster.
The pair struggled to find chemistry after Brad had to coax the terrified blonde onto a helicopter to get to a cliff-top picnic.
He later told her: "I really feel like we want the same things but we have a hard time communicating that."
"I am so sorry but I admit to you that I am completely shocked that a relationship I felt so strongly about went in such a different direction."
Meanwhile Chantal, 28, told the cameras that she had fallen for Brad after their desert safari tour date.
The beautiful brunette said: "Every time I spend time with Brad, I fall more and more in love with him."
"I really love Brad... I want to be a better person for him."
Emily also confessed her love for the gorgeous hunk over dinner, telling him: "I am ready for it to be over and for me to spend my life with you or whatever the case."
