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... read more

The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 9 Season 8, Episode 9

Emily, Sean, Arie and Jef arrive Curacao for a week of fantasy dates. Before the dates begin, Emily talks about her time with all the men. She says she immediately had a connection with Sean, who she says gives her butterflies. Jef, who rode in on a skateboard Night 1, "marches to his own drum," she says. He has an edge, but is also kind and thoughtful, which she loves. Then there's Arie, who Emily says she hit it off with right away. Emily tears up as she imagines her life with Arie and how much he would adore her.

Enough with the mushy stuff, let's get to the hot-and-steamy dates! Sean and Emily meet on the beach where they take off in a helicopter that transports them to a private island. They talk about their hometown date and a comment his family made about him treating his ex like a buddy, which raised a red flag for Emily. Sean explains that after a while he wasn't in love with his ex, but that it's not the love he's experiencing with Emily. Sean then stutters and doesn't yet say the "L" word to her directly. Sean changes the topic and they go off to snorkel in the ocean.  That night Emily and Sean have a romantic dinner on the beach. Sean talks about how he's ready for a family and then pulls out a letter he wrote for Ricki.

"I hope to honor you by loving your mom with every ounce of my being," he says. Emily melts as he continues to spout such meaningful words. read more

The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 6 Season 8, Episode 6

Emily and her men have arrived in Croatia for the next step of their Bachelorette journey, and Travis is the lucky man who gets the week's first one-on-one.

First up, he and Emily explore the town, hand-in-hand. They wind up at the "balancing stone" where if you can stay up on the rock, you'll be lucky in love. After a few failed tries, Travis hangs on. Good sign for things to come? At dinner, Travis tells Emily about his broken engagement and that no one did anything wrong, but it just wasn't right. He also admits he hasn't dated in the two years since. After a seemingly great dinner, Emily says, "From Day 1 you've been someone who's brought light to every situation...but I don't know if we have that romance." She lets Travis go (I'm actually surprised), and he is heartbroken.

The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 4 Season 8, Episode 4

On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, Emily and the gang are headed to Bermuda for fun in the sun and some manly competition. But before the group date, we get a one-on-one date, which goes to Doug. Immediately, the single dad gets nervous and the guys waste no time before playing up his insecurity and pushing his buttons.

The two head off to shop around the island town and Doug also tells Emily about a charity he started.  Emily is more and more impressed, but equally nervous that he can't possibly be that perfect. So at dinner she calls him out on it and even asks him what his ex would say was her biggest complaint about him. Doug responds that he spends too much time with her son, and again she wonders if he's just saying the "right thing." But when Doug asks Emily about her flaws she realizes maybe it was a tougher question than she thought. So with that, she hands him the rose, but he doesn't give her a thank you kiss.

The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 3 Season 8, Episode 3

We begin with Emily chatting with her mom while the men are meeting Chris in the courtyard to get the first date card of the week, which goes to Chris. Before we know it, they're walking through downtown Charlotte, hand-in-hand, until they reach a building — that they'll have to climb up. The ropes fall from the top and the harnesses come out and the two are getting ready to scale the wall. As they're climbing, the wind picks up and lighting flashes, so Emily starts to freak out. And it doesn't help there's now a crowd below. They soon reach the top, but rather than kissing her, Chris gives Emily a high-five. How, um, romantic?

The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 2 Season 8, Episode 2

It's Week 2 of The Bachelorette and for the first time, we see a local news report about the filming of the show. Apparently this is a big deal for Charlotte, N.C.

Emily gets together with some girlfriends to tell them about her first night. Must be nice to be allowed to chat with friends, rather than have the usual solitary confinement our Bachelors and Bachelorettes experience. At the house, Chris announces the first one-on-one date, which goes to Ryan. But rather than the glamorous or adventurous dates viewers are used to, Emily takes Ryan home to bake cookies for her daughter's soccer team. Ryan seems right at home with the apron on and the two seem to be effortless together. Once the cookies are done, they're off to the soccer field where Ryan waits in the car as Emily brings the kids the goodies. Ryan seems in awe of watching Em in her element.

But the date isn't all comfy clothes and baking cookies. At night, the pair gets dolled up. (Love Ryan's silvery suit!) The Charlotte fandom is even waiting outside the restaurant for their arrival. Once inside, Emily doesn't waste much time before asking Ryan about his exes. He's had two serious relationships, he says. They then delve deep into how to pursue someone and how Emily's new man will eventually fit into Ricki's life. Ryan lays it on by telling Emily how attractive she was making cookies and that he likes her already. Clearly, he gets the rose. Dinner is capped off with dancing to a live performance from Emily's favorite band, Gloriana. But no kisses just yet!
