The Bachelorette Episode Recap: "Men Tell All" Season 6, Episode 10

So I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of these "Men Tell All" reunion specials, especially when they get dragged out for two hours. So, in the interest of everyone, I am going to skip over the many clip shows and retrospectives to get to the good quotes from the guys. All of this (except for the hilarious gag reel at the end of the show) is stuff we've already seen before anyways.

Craig M. vs. The Weatherman
Most of the drama this season came courtesy of Justin and Frank, but the biggest man vs. man feud was definitely between Craig M. and the weatherman. When asked by Chris Harrison, the weatherman says their dislike began when Craig M. thought the weatherman hogged one of their first conversations with Ali. But he insists it was Craig M.'s own fault for not speaking up. However, John C. and Tyler V. take the weatherman to task for telling Ali that Craig M. was dangerous but not outright admitting to it later to the guys. Tyler V. says the weatherman brought something to Ali that had nothing to do with her relationship with Craig M. Unfortunately (or not), Craig M. is not there to stand up for himself. When asked by Chris Harrison, Jessie says in a different situation he definitely would have punched Craig M.

Kasey
Craig R. calls Kasey crazy over and over, but does come to his defense, saying that he had genuine feelings for Ali right from the start. Although Kasey tells Chris Harrison that the wrong man went home that night (meaning Justin), he calls Ali's decision to let him go "admirable" because she let him go and find someone else. Following a montage of Kasey's finest moments (the singing, the tattoo, etc.), Kasey says he used to be a very guarded, closed-off guy but the show allowed him to become a much more open person (and say "guard and protect your heart" a few thousand times). Most importantly, he does admit that "maybe I scared her and came on too strong," But he also says that another girl will love all that stuff.

When asked specifically about the tattoo, Kasey explains it was something to represent who he is and he got it to make sure he felt comfortable with who he is (whatever that means). In the end, Kasey says he's is happy that he at least has a happy memory compared to Ali's final memories of Frank and Justin.

Kirk
Kirk, still heartbroken a little bit, makes for a very somber interview. He says he was in love with her and ready to propose. He saw a lot of things in Ali that had been missing in other people he dated. Because of his illness, it was hard for him to give everything to a girl in most of his previous relationships. When asked about leaving before Frank's bombshell, he calls Frank a good friend but says he "doesn't know what to make" of the fact that Frank kept his feelings about Nicole from him and didn't allow Kirk to advance his relationship with Ali. Just like Kasey, Kirk says he's in a better place than before the show and feels like now he can really find the one.

Justin
Justin is a wrestler, but also a wimp, and decides not to appear on the special, so the other guys weigh in instead. Craig R. says Justin is a bad person because he not only went on the show to gain publicity, but he went on the show to purposefully hurt Ali. He also vehemently denied that he has been in touch with Justin since the show. Ty, who apparently hates Justin so much he starts twitching, says Justin "balled his eyes out" in Iceland and said he was here for the right reasons.

As a second tier replacement for Justin, Jessie comes out to discuss the situation. Jessie says Jessica (Justin's girlfriend) contacted her on a social networking site as a fan. She told Jessie her boyfriend was on the show but that she didn't know what to do. After Jessica contacted Jessie, she sent Jessie texts, voicemails and picture to prove they were together. After that, Jessica learned about Justin's second girlfriend, Kimberly, and eventually found out she only lived five minutes away from Justin's other woman. The absolute worst part is Jessie says she saw text messages Justin sent Jessica about putting a ring on her finger when he was done.

Ali
Finally, Ali comes out! In looking back on the big moments of the season, she first discusses that last confrontation with Justin. She says she was determined to not shed one tear for Justin to stay strong for herself and for Jessica and also because he didn't deserve it. She also says saying goodbye to the various guys throughout the process was extremely difficult, despite the fact that they weren't a good match. However, she says Frank's revelation was "rock bottom" for her. She says that although she knew there was a chance someone wouldn't love her back, she didn't think it would be Frank. When Chris Harrison asks if she would have chosen Kirk instead in hindsight, she says she thinks everything happened as it should. [Insert preview of final episode here with no spoilers, hooray!]

So what did you think of the "Men Tell All" reunion? Did you get closure on the whole Justin debacle? Are you less convinced Kasey is out of his mind? Do you feel bad Kirk didn't get to go further because of Frank's selfish ways? Sound off in the comments below (and get excited for next week's finale!)
