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.

"I'm definitely the most comfortable around you, I mean that," he says. The two also talk about the prospect of getting married on the spot and Chantal explains that if she's willing to get engaged to someone, aka Brad, she's ready to marry that person right then and there. Their great date continues with... read more

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 6 Season 15, Episode 6

On this week's The Bachelor, Brad and the ladies are headed to Costa Rica where there's rain, rain and more rain. But that doesn't put a damper on the dates. The first one-on-one goes to Chantal and it begins with the typical Bachelor mode of transportation — helicopter. As they head off, Michelle dreams that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys or apes, and that's probably the nicest thing she said all episode. Did I mention she called Chantal aggressive and overly confident? Yep, the pot calling the kettle black.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week Four Season 15, Episode 4

The claws come out on The Bachelor, and Michelle mysteriously wakes up with a black eye she claims appeared overnight. What?

Chantal is the first to get the one-on-one date with Brad this week and they set out in a private helicopter to the ocean. She is terrified upon learning they'll be walking on the sea floor, but she sucks it up and it doesn't take long for Chantal to soak it in and enjoy the moment as the two wander the ocean bottom with smoke monster-looking creatures in their wake. Afterward, the two share their own private villa on the water where Brad asks Chantal if... read more

As the connections continue to develop on The Bachelor and the first kisses begin to happen, Michelle gets more and more possessive. Plus: One of the girls reveals her extremely emotional past.

Ashley S gets the first one-on-one date this week and she and Brad head off in a convertible to Capitol Records. They go into the recording studio where they must sing "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal. Brad is pretty sure it's going to sound awful and he's right, but they hold hands and are totally into it. "I apologize, Mr. Seal," Brad says after the song. They then walk into a another room and Seal is there to sing his hit for them. I'm actually surprised it took 15 seasons to get him on the show. read more

The ladies of The Bachelor have moved into their mansion and it's time to start the dates with Brad.

"Use your time wisely," Chris Harrison warns the women. Ashley H. is the lucky winner who receives the very first one-on-one.

Thank you, ABC, now I expect my own personal carnival on my next date.

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.
