Quick Take: The Bachelorette, (Emily Maynard), "The Men Tell All"
The (ousted) men return to talk about their journey with Emily.
Review: The Bachelorette, (Emily Maynard), "The Men Tell All"
(S0810) It's that time of season when the men of Emily’s iteration of The Bachelorette come together to talk about what went down in the house.
But before we even got to see the guys talk about each other, we were treated to some moments that weren’t shared on camera, such as Arie’s brothers spying on him and Emily kissing, and we were treated to a preview of the new Bachelor Pad, which to me looks more dramatic than the past two seasons.
A good chunk of the guys showed up to chat about Emily and the season: Randy, Aaron, Joe, Charlie, Stevie, Alessandro, Travis, Nate, Michael, Alejandro, Kalon, Ryan, Doug, John, Tony, Chris, and Sean. A highlight reel of all the drama was put on display, which brought many issues back up instantly. Kalon is brought to the "hot seat" first and continues to remind us of what an idiot he is. He tries to defend his comments about Emily’s daughter being "baggage" and nobody is having it. I don’t think there could have been any reason to justify the things he had said to her while on the show.
Ryan joins Chris Harrison next and he also proves what an idiot he is. He also defends his words such as Emily being a trophy wife and that he wasn’t going to love on her as much if she gained weight while they were married. Although Ryan is arrogant, it comes off as funny and the things he says are just ridiculous. With Kalon, I find his words harsher.
Chris is up next and he talks about how much he fell for Emily and thought he was going to be the one. He talks about wanting to fall in love and even though he seems like he has good intentions, this is the man that was seen in bed with two different women in the ‘Bachelor Pad’ reel. Huh, didn’t see that coming. Sean is in the hot seat last and gets the most cheers from the audience. He is still having a rough time, but “sees the light at the end of the tunnel.”
Emily finally comes out to face the guys and she tells Sean that it still upset her to watch her goodbye. Kalon tried to apologize, but she wasn’t having it especially since a couple of weeks ago he tweeted a picture of a baggage claim and posted that he wondered if Emily had been there. Social networks don’t lie and once posts are seen you can’t take them back! Kalon has no response to Emily and she just shrugs him off.
A blooper reel comes on showing some mishaps with wind, Chris going commando under his kilt in Croatia, Alessandro hunting vampires naked and Chris Harrison asking Emily on the first night how many guys she was hoping to sleep with. The bloopers are the best part of the show for me and in the last couple of days they have been talking about doing a ‘Bachelor’ blooper special. I would definitely watch it.
Overall there wasn’t that much importance to "The Men Tell All" and it was disappointing that only a few of the guys got to speak. I would have liked to hear about Alessandro’s vampire hunting skills and his explanation of his conversations with Emily. A finale preview was shown, but was no different from the one shown last week. I still think they are trying to play it as she chooses no one, but I doubt it. Either Emily is a good actress, because she looked pretty happy at the ‘Men Tell All’ or she doesn’t pull a “Mesnick” and change her mind. We will see what happens when Emily has to decide between Arie and Jef, this Sunday July 22nd at 8PM on ABC. A live "After the final Rose" will debut right after.
