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.
Although Ashley H. received the first Bachelor one-on-one date and she and Brad quickly developed a bond, host Chris Harrison warns that she may get hit hard with "first-date syndrome."
While the season's first date went well, it was a tougher road to the rose for Jackie, who alarmed Brad when she revealed her lack of past relationships. Harrison weighs in on why Jackie raised a red flag and says he was surprised that Keltie, who he calls "cute on a stick," got axed so quickly.
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.
"Would you like to see my basement?" isn't something most girls want to hear when meeting the parents of their date — especially when the basement is full of dead animals.
But The Bachelorette's Kirk DeWindt gave it a shot anyway when he took Ali Fedotowsky to his hometown in Wisconsin. "I was a little nervous to see her reaction ... but I had given her a fair warning — she knew what she was getting into," the 27-year-old suitor told TVGuide.com. "She's a roll-with-the-punches kind of girl, so I figured it wouldn't be too big of a deal."
On this week of The Bachelorette, it's finally time for the hometown dates! These are the four dates that had Ali in a tizzy all during last week's episodes and who can blame her? Like in real life — which this show rarely ever is — meeting the family can make or break the romantic connections.

The Bachelorette - Ali Fedotowsky
The women on The Bachelor get a bad rap for their fighting, but this week's The Bachelorette proved that guys can be just as catty. Chris Harrison, who can be seen hosting Friday's 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee at 8/7c on ABC, explains to TVGuide.com that although Jonathan the weatherman got picked on, he's not a fan favorite, either. He also tells us why Ali is so gaga for Roberto.
