“The Men Tell All” – It’s an exciting, unpredictable reunion viewers won’t want to miss, as the most memorable bachelors from this season – including James, Ben, Michael G., Mikey T., Zak W., Juan Pablo and Jonathan – return to confront each other and Desiree one last time on national television to dish the dirt and tell their side of the story. The last eliminated bachelor, Zak, seeks closure about what went wrong with his relationship with Desiree. Sparks will fly as the villainous James and Ben try to explain their actions. The “Bachelor Bus” makes some surprise stops to crash fan viewing parties in Los Angeles and New York, and three favorite Bachelorettes advise Desiree on dealing with the men who were there for the “wrong reasons,” on “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All,” MONDAY, JULY 22 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Editor’s Note: The two-part “Bachelorette” Season Finale Event will air Monday, July 29 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), with “Episode 909 – Season Finale, Part 1,” and Monday, August 5 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), with “Episode 910 – Season Finale, Part 2,” to be followed by the live “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).
A crazy, fun-filled trip follows Desiree and Chris Harrison – accompanied by favorite “Bachelor” alumni Trista Sutter, Jason and Molly Mesnick and Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum — aboard the “Bachelor Bus,” both in New York and Los Angeles, to pay surprise visits to “Bachelorette” viewing parties. Three girl friends and former Bachelorettes – Emily Maynard, Ashley Hebert and Ali Fedotowsky — have Desiree’s back and offer her sage advice about confronting some of the men who might have had ulterior motives for being on the show.
Fireworks erupt when the guys join Chris Harrison on stage and the grudge match begins. The men once again will question Ben’s intentions for being on the show, with Dan being particularly vitriolic after talking to Ben’s son’s mom and hearing her down-and-dirty accusations about his fitness as a father. James, on the other hand, felt that he was bullied by the other guys when they boldly accused him of wanting to be the next Bachelor. Kasey continues to expose the conversation between James and Mikey in the van that day in Germany that ultimately led to Desiree sending James home, and then a wild confrontation ensues between James, Mikey, Kasey and the rest of the men.
Fan favorite Juan Pablo’s introduction has the audience going wild. Taking his turn in the hot seat, Juan Pablo discusses the difficulty dating as a single dad and missing out on a future with Desiree. He admits he was sincerely looking for love and to have a family some day.
Zak is still seeking closure after leaving the show brokenhearted so close to the end. Has he gotten over his feelings for Desiree? Did giving her that ring scare her off? Chris Harrison surprises Zak with the journal he gave Desiree on one of their dates with a secret message on the last page written in invisible ink. That message is revealed for the first time.
Finally, Desiree faces tough questioning from some of the men who were fighting to win her heart. Jonathan tries to explain his questionable intent when he invited the Bachelorette to the “fantasy suite” on the first night. Then she turns her attention to James and pointedly accuses him of manipulating her.
It’s the bachelors as you’ve never seen them before! The special also includes some light-hearted bloopers from this season, as well as a sneak peek of the emotional final days of Desiree’s journey with the final three bachelors – Brooks, Chris and Drew – who are vying for her heart and the final rose.
