After a whirlwind journey to find love, The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik is about to hand out his final rose.
The Bachelor: Where are they now?
This week's episode of The Bachelor marks my favorite hour of each season — The Women Tell All special! So get your smack-talk ready and let's get to recapping.
But wait! After Chris Harrison introduces the women, we get a sneak peek of the recent Bachelor Nation reunion in Las Vegas. There's lot of making out, a few faces we haven't seen in a while and a lot of casting possibilities for the next season of Bachelor Pad (Ed, Ryan P and Stacey, to name a few.) We also get a glimpse into a possible rekindling of flames between previous Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Frank, who left her season for a girl that he's still with.
The Bachelor contestants get pretty feisty on Monday's Women Tell All episode -- and not all their bile is directed at Courtney.
In a special sneak peek of the special, Samantha takes aim at Blakeley for not being friendlier to the other women. Blakeley says she was simply more mature than everyone else.

It's Week 2 of The Bachelor and the women are off to Sonoma, Calif., to meet Ben in his hometown. While some of the women begin to form relationships with Ben, others continue their downward emotional spiral.
The first date card arrives at the house and it's for Kacie B. The others, of course, are jealous and Courtney even hopes she doesn't return. Ben arrives in his truck and takes her to explore his stomping grounds in downtown Sonoma. They head inside a café with a piano, and the two play a few chords before moving on to a candy shop. There, Kacie grabs a baton and shows off her twirling skills, which are impressive. Ben's twirling abilities? Not so much. They eventually land at dinner where Ben talks about returning to Sonoma after his father got sick. The conversation is easy. It's no surprise that Kacie gets a rose — and a kiss. And for an additional surprise Ben takes Kacie into a theater where a home video of her childhood — then his — is played.
