Desiree Hartsock and Ben
Talk about an awkward week on The Bachelorette. First Bryden tells Desiree he's going to leave the show — while she's middle of a date with someone else — and then during their two-on-one date, Michael berates Ben until Ben has to take a breather outside. Finally, the men have had enough of James and plan to tell Des he's not there for the right reasons, but once the cocktail party is cancelled and there's no time for the guys to talk to her, he survives another week. Does Chris Harrison believe the guys or does he side with James? And does he think she made the right move on the two-on-one date? Plus: Why is he skeptical of Brooks?
We never thought we'd discuss The Bachelorette and Soulja Boy in the same sentence. Nevertheless, worlds collided when the rapper helped Desiree and some of her men make a rap video mocking the notorious claim that some contestants aren't on the show for "the right reasons." In our weekly chat with host Chris Harrison, he shares the behind-the-scenes scoop on making the music video and explains why frontrunner Ben is causing a stir in the house. Plus: Is the preview for next week's girlfriend scandal a red herring?
