The Bachelor Episode Recap: Women Tell All Season 15, Episode 10

This week's episode was my favorite of every Bachelor season — the Women Tell All. And boy did they tell all. Melissa and Raichel continued to argue, Michelle continually cried and Ashley H debuted her brand new look.

Before we get to the current season, Chris tells us about all the reunions held between previous contestants. I was there to witness the craziness first hand, but ABC managed to catch a lot more scandalous moments on camera than we did.

Back to the stage, it doesn't take long before things gets heated. Many of the women tell Michelle she was a completely different person on the show than they knew in the house and Jackie calls her a spider. "You're creepy and everyone's afraid of you," she says. Ouch. Michelle starts crying and apologizes, but they're not buying it.

Melissa goes on stage first and Chris points out that the fighting between she and Raichel ruined their chances with Brad. The two go back and forth with Melissa eventually apologizing and Raichel not so much.

Next, Michelle goes into the hot seat and wow did things heat up. As she's unable to stop sobbing, she mutters that she was misunderstood. For someone I couldn't stand throughout the season, I'm amazed that I'm beginning to feel for her. She says she put a lot of pressure on herself because she left her daughter to be on the show, and that's what Stacey fires at her about not putting her child first. Stacey clearly wants to get the TV time she didn't get during the season. Jackie is also pretty aggressive and Chris points out that maybe the girls have a problem with the fact that Brad didn't have a problem with Michelle.

Ashley S. is goes into the hot seat next and is emotional after watching her footage. She tells Chris that she's been through bad relationships and decided this would be different. Unfortunately, it went downhill from the first impression rose. Ashley talks about how she felt like it was a dagger to her heart when Brad said she wouldn't be a good wife for him, but also admits that she knows that perfect guy is out there for her. "You have any single friends?" she jokes to Chris.

Ashley H. joins Chris on stage and also tears as she watches her tape.  Now a brunette with bangs, Ash calls the experience eye opening. But she also has regrets that she wasn't sure about Brad's feelings towards her. "I hate to break it to you, you were in love," Chris says. Ash admits she was, but has a ver positive outlook and says, "Brad primed me for what is yet to come."

Time for Brad to come out on stage and Ashley S asks him about his remark that she wouldn't make a good wife. His answer? "Who the hell am I to say that." Brad also tells everyone he'll defend Michelle until he's blue in the face and that there's not a malicious bone in her body. Ashley H is very jovial and just wants a hug from Brad. Not exactly what we're used to seeing from the last woman to be rejected before WTA.

Chris asks Brad about his current love situation and he says that the woman he chose changed his life and he falls more and more in love with her every day. Swoon.

After some pretty funny bloopers that include a very naked man, we see the footage of the remaining women, Chantal and Emily, from the beginning. I think I've made up my mind who I want Brad to choose. Have you?

Premise: True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
