This season's "Men Tell All" episode of The Bachelorette was light-hearted and fun — because two of this season's most talked-about contestants, Justin and Frank, weren't there. As Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com, Justin chose not to show, while Frank was purposely excluded so that he could appear on next week's "After the Finale Rose." Harrison shares what didn't make it on this week's episode — including Derrick (aka "Shooter") explaining why he chose to tell such an embarrassing story on Night One — and also which of the final two men remaining, Roberto and Chris L., is the overwhelming favorite to win Ali's heart.
Although viewers weren't surprised to see Frank leave Ali on this week's Bachelorette, host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com his exit left more questions than answers. Why does Harrison think Frank took the easy way out? And with Ali's intense chemistry with Roberto and her deep connection with Chris L., can Ali "screw this up?" Plus: A surprise guest stops by the Men Tell All.
As Bachelorette Ali and her final three suitors embark on exotic dates in Tahiti, Frank may let his doubts lead him to exit. But for viewers annoyed that they've already been spoiled by previews, Chris Harrison says, "If you think you think you've seen everything, you haven't." Plus: Was Roberto in his baseball uniform cheesy or adorable?

The Bachelorette - Ali Fedotowsky, Kasey
