Ã‚ÂAshley Hebert, the bachelorette, watched as the remaining men took to the ring to fight for her love. The Muay Thai boxing match ended with Ames Brown, a banker from New York City, in the emergency room with a mild concussion. Are we surprised? No. Muay Thai, also known as the art of eight limbs, incorporates the use of hands, elbows, knees and shinsÃ¢â‚¬”it can be very dangerous. From what we saw on the show, the bachelorette has been practicing a little Muay Thai, too...for exercise.
According to Martial Arts Advantage, a one-hour Muay Thai class can burn anywhere from 500-800 calories. While the bachelorette uses this powerhouse workout to stay in shape for her (potential) wedding day, she's also reaping other stress-fighting benefits.
Ashley should keep practicing Muay Thai as the show heads to Hong Kong...troublemaker Bentley Williams is rumored to make an appearance! "The bachelorette isn't sure who to trust...and when you can't trust your own judgement, you are paralyzed," says Lou Paget, relationship and sex expert. Maybe a few rounds in the boxing ring will help clear her head...
