The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Men Tell All Season 8, Episode 10

It's my favorite episode of The Bachelorette season when Emily reunites with her more memorable "exes." First, Emily chats with Chris Harrison about some of the more interesting and dramatic moments throughout the season, including Ryan's "trophy wife" comment and Kalon's "baggage" remark and some of the painfully awkward times like Doug's mid-breakup kiss. So what did the men have to say for themselves? Let's find out!

Not yet! First, we get some moments that weren't shown on TV. Apparently Emily not only spilled wine on her favorite dress, but then cursed in front of her date. Emily also sang "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" with Travis to his egg Shelly (bizarre), was spied on while making out with Arie by his little brothers and tried to teach a very awkward Chris to dance.  

Now we get a preview of Bachelor Pad which shows A LOT of crying, yelling, competition and definitely not enough sexy times. But from the clips it looks like we've got alums vs. newbies, Ed vs. Reid, Michael and Rachel "falling in love," Kalon and Lindzi hooking up and Chris double-timing more than one girl.

Back to Men Tell All. Finally the men come out! We've got Randy, Aaron, Joe, Charlie, Stevie, Alessandro, Travis, Nate, Michael, Alejandro, Kalon, Ryan, Doug, John, Tony, Chris B and Sean. The first clips package focuses on the fighting, Doug vs. everyone else, Kalon's pompousness and finally, Ryan. Back in the studio, Chris B talks first about the guys thinking he was young and then he and Doug continue to bicker like they're Chris' age — 25.

Kalon is the first guy to take the hot seat. After watching him get thrown out of the house, he tries to defend his comments, and even Chris calls him out for saying some pretty terrible things to Emily. "It wasn't necessarily my environment," Kalon tries to explain, which leads all the guys to blame him for being there for the glitz and glam. Overall, Kalon looks like a jerk.

Ryan (who looks like a different man!) takes the hot seat next. He laughs a lot of it off and says he's confident, not arrogant, and a fun-loving guy. Do the guys agree? Chris B, for one, is not believing what he's saying. "It was never fully about Emily, I was looking for my wife," Ryan says. Interesting way to put it, I guess. Ultimately, Chris H asks if there's any chance he's just an arrogant ass and Ryan flat out says no.

Up next is Chris B who is still emotional watching his journey with Emily. "I loved that girl 110 percent," he says, adding that he doesn't regret anything from the season. (I may have fallen asleep during his chat.)

Season favorite Sean is the final guy in the hot seat. He says he fell in love and truly believed she was his wife. Although it didn't work out for Sean, it's clear the ladies in the audience and all over America loves this guy. Plus: he's a class act.

Emily finally takes the stage looking insanely gorgeous. She admits it's tough seeing Sean and tells him, "I watched the episode and literally did the ugly cry ... everything I felt for you was so genuine and true." Chris, meanwhile, says she opened his eyes to falling in love and made him believe in it again. One regret Emily does mention is that she didn't give Doug the group date rose in London when he filled her in on Kalon's comment. And speaking of Kalon, he tries to apologize, but Emily calls his bluff and says, "And you, my dear, should be a politician because that is the biggest load of sh-- I ever heard." (Re-watch that moment here.) On a lighter note, Emily and Ryan are able to joke about their time together and why they just weren't meant to be.

After an amusing blooper reel (lots of falling props, curses, naked butts, etc), we see a recap featuring the remaining two men, Arie and Jef. Who will Emily choose? We'll have to wait until Sunday to find out!

Premise: A rose-wielding single woman looks for Mr. Right among a passel of hunky men, just like on 'The Bachelor' but with the gender roles reversed.
