TVGuide.com readers are hoping for what would be the most dramatic Bachelorette outcome ever: Jillian Harris choosing Reid Rosenthal, a bachelor she's already rejected.
Forty-one percent of more than 2,800 voters in an online poll want Rosenthal, the most recently jilted bachelor, to win Jillian's heart. The previews for the finale show him returning. But would she take him back over her two final two suitors?
Ed Swiderski, the businessman from Chicago who exited early on in The Bachelorette to keep his job, returned to fight for Jillian, and has garnered more than...
On Monday night's finale of The Bachelorette (8/7 CT) cute and kooky Canadian Jillian Harris must choose between her final suitors, Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke (or perhaps the recently rejected Reid Rosenthal, who appears in finale promos). Given the series' terrible track record, who do you think Jillian should end up with? (Vote in poll below.)
But before Jillian hands out that final rose, let's look back — at both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — to see where all the contestants are now...

What's in store for Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson during the new season of SVU? — Crystal
MICKEY: Executive producer Neal Baer tells me the unofficial theme of Season 11 is "Benson and Stabler against the world." First all up in their grill is Wentworth Miller, who guest-stars as a cop with whom Benson will both clash... and make sexy eye contact! Next, Emmy winner Christine Lahti's ADA Sonya Paxton will be kickin' a-- and takin' names, which won't sit well for Stabler initially, and Benson ultimately.
I'm going crazy because there hasn't been any news on Criminal Minds. Please, tell me something about Hotch's future! — Francesca
MATT: You and many other Mega Buzz readers seem rather concerned about the gun that went off during Hotch's unexpected season-finale face-off with the serial killer known as the Reaper. Well, you should know that ...
In this week's sort-of episode of The Bachelorette, the men tell all, discuss the "man code" and Wes, and pretend it isn't totally weird that Reid isn't there.
The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All
8 pm/ET ABC
We won't know who Jillian picks for another week, but a number of the losers in this love game return to confront our bachelorette. Country bad boy Wes won't be among them, but he won't go unmentioned. (An ABC release promises a "musical tribute" to Wes as well.) There will also be highlights and outtakes, a preview of the finale and a visit by 2009 Bachelor Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, the gal he chose after he dumped Melissa, the gal he chose on the show.
Read on for previews of Prom Night in Mississippi, Dating in the Dark, Moonshot and Torchwood: Children of the Earth.

This week is what summer is all about: Baseball, free outdoor concerts, and reality shows at their worst — by which we mean their best. Welcome to our Top Moments, Boys of Summer edition.
DeAnna Pappas, Jillian Harris
There are two men left standing on The Bachelorette, but DeAnna Pappas thinks Jillian Harris only has eyes for one.

This week, Jillian goes on Hawaiian dates with the three remaining bachelors, Ed surprises her by flying his family to Hawaii, and Jill and one of the bachelors have intimacy issues.
Home Run Derby
8 pm/ET ESPN
All eyes are on the efficient and powerful swing of Cardinals star Albert Pujols as the All-Star break home-run leader heads a group of eight long-ball specialists in the shadow of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The beloved reigning NL MVP has finished second and third previously in an event that often leaves a more-lasting memory than the actual All-Star Game, as happened last year when runner-up Josh Hamilton set a new single-round record of 28 dingers. Missouri native and 2006 champ Ryan Howard joins Prince Fielder and Adrian Gonzalez in looking to outlast Pujols.
Read on for previews of The Bachelorette, Teddy: In His Own Words, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and Nurse Jackie.
[Editor's Note: Sorry for the delay, B-ette fans. We are so grounded when Tim gets back from the Staples Center.]
Hi, and welcome back to The Bachelorette recap. Tim is en route to Michael Jackson's memorial, so I (Fiancee) will be reviewing tonight's episode solo. This week, Jillian drinks more wine, questions the chemistry she has with each guy and impresses me with her snazzy wardrobe. And Kiptyn wears tight pants.
Goodbye Tim, it's Ladies Night!
