I've been watching the feeds a lot and I'm not sure where anyone is getting the idea that Ashley is a floater.
I don't find Ashley to be a floater at all. She is doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff. Her social game is one of the best so far this season. Even Jani sees that Ashley is more than what she seems. If it's because she hasn't won any competitions, then Wil, Joe, Danielle, Ian, JoJo, and Jenn are floaters too since they haven't won anything either. Ashley doen't float to where the power is either.
Ashley is playin' a lot of people in that house. She's smarter than people think she is.
