Love can run hot and cold.

So it seemed appropriate that Madawaska’s Ashley Hebert was seen soaking in a hot spring and rappelling down a waterfall in a Costa Rican jungle on Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor.”

Hebert, 26, survived the temperature extremes.

At the end of the two-hour episode, Hebert got a rose from bachelor Brad Womack, meaning she’ll be back on TV next week. She is now one of just six women left in the competition, out of 30 who started vying for Womack’s heart when this season of “The Bachelor” began Jan. 3.

Hebert didn’t get much one-on-one time with Womack on Monday’s episode. She did her rappelling and hot-spring soaking on a group date with Womack and five other women. Womack said he wanted to find out whether the women were “adventurous” enough for him.

When Hebert heard about the group date, she said she was ready to get “down and dirty” in the jungle.

Hebert rappelled with ease, while other women were scared of heights or jungle bugs.

And while other women argued with Womack over his taste in women, Hebert was fairly quiet. Another woman told Womack she had already fallen in love with him.

Hebert, who is from Madawaska and is now a dental student in Philadelphia, has been strong in the competition among the women to get Womack to propose marriage. She got the first one-on-one date with Womack, and got the season’s first romantic kiss.

Next week’s episode was filmed on the Caribbean island of Anguilla. The season finale is scheduled for March 14, when Womack is tentatively scheduled to propose to one of the women.
