The James drama finally came to a head on The Bachelorette Monday, leading to a big confrontation between the guys and, ultimately, his exit. After Drew's incredible one-on-one date with Desiree that earned him a rose, he decided to inform her about James' comments last week. Des later confronted James about everything, still kept him around after the group date, but then decided it was his time to go. Did Des make the right choice in cutting him? And should Drew have told Desiree about the drama in the first place? Plus: What record did the episode set? Host Chris Harrison explains all.
The Bachelorette is usually lighthearted and full of fun, but this week's episode, which incorporated the tragedy caused by Hurricane Sandy, had a more serious tone.
As part of the episode's one-on-one date, Desiree and James headed to the New Jersey shore where they met a couple whose home was destroyed and who had to celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary in a Red Cross shelter. Des and James then gave the couple their date and instead spent their night grabbing pizza and eventually joining the couple for a private concert by Darius Rucker.
A week after rapping about being on The Bachelorette for "the right reasons," one suitor proved he was the opposite but genuine when his girlfriend showed up to confront him.
On Monday's episode, Brian's apparent girlfriend Stephanie came to the mansion to confront him for being on the show. (She says she just thought her boyfriend was merely going away on a trip.) Joining the ranks of Wes from Jillian's season, Justin from Ali's season and Bentley from Ashley's season, Brian showed he had ulterior motives and was ultimately dismissed for his dishonesty.
