After Trying Moves from '50 Shades of Grey,' Royal Oak Bartender Says Bye to 'The Bachelor'

Macomb Township resident and Royal Oak bartender Ashley Palenkas was the first eliminated from 'The Bachelor' Monday night.

This Macomb Township resident will be looking for love somewhere else, after Ashley Palenkas, 28, was the first eliminated from the season premiere of The Bachelor Monday night.

Palenkas, who also moonlights as a bartender in Royal Oak, was one of 25 ladies who vyed for the heart of Dallas native Sean Lowe during the latest season of the ABC reality show. Lowe was a finalist one last seasn's The Bachelorette before he was sent home by Emily Maynard.

According to Palenkas' bio, she considers herself a romantic who wears her heart on her sleeve, letting emotions "rule over my head."

However on Monday night, it was her aggressive attempt at romance that convinced Lowe to send Palenkas packing.

According to CBS Detroit, Palenkas tried to woo Lowe using some tricks from the popular romance novel, 50 Shades of Gray. When Palenkas offered Lowe a spanking, the bachelor immediatley refused and later sent the Metro Detroit native home.

"Ah, she was sort of a hot mess," wrote Sarah Aittama on the Royal Oak Patch Facebook page.

In one of her first interviews Tuesday morning with WYCD in Detroit, Palenkas said she went on the show for the experience but isn't necessarily heartbroken.

"(Lowe) is definitely a good-looking guy but we really didn’t have much in common,” she said on The Dr. Don Show With Rachael and Grunwald.
