Bachelorette Season 11, Men Tell All Weekly Recap


I'm so excited to be doing my first ever series of Bachelorette Recaps! This show is my guilty pleasure and I love writing and talking about it, but I also really love reading spoilers. I just wanted to provide a quick disclaimer that I have read spoilers and will be writing this from the spoiled perspective. If you want to read spoilers so you can relate more to this post you can click here.

If you like this recap, you can read all of my other recaps and Bachelorette themed posts: first episodethird episodefourth episodefifth episodesixth episodeseventh episodeMy Top 3Bachelor in Paradise Opinions, tenth episodeThough I know what happens in rose ceremonies and the ending, the funny and dramatic things that occur within the episodes make it worth watching. I'm excited, because this season seems to be full of drama. I think choosing Kaitlyn as Bachelorette was a good idea, though she could end up as the girl version of Juan Pablo.


The Men Tell All is always a more boring episode for me especially as I'm eagerly awaiting the finale, but I'm so excited to hopefully give you some entertaining insight on what I thought of this episode.

Bachelor in Paradise Preview
Bachelor in Paradise looks crazy as ever. Ashley I. is crying every other frame, no shocker there. Clare is back, of course if you say you'll never be back you always, always come back. They also say it is the world's most beautiful beach, yeah if it's anything like last year than it's definitely not the worlds best. They show ambulances that will probably never be shown for real in the episodes. Also, you see lots of people sleeping together in natural Bachelor in Paradise fashion. Finally, we find out that we get 4 hours of Paradise every week some on Sunday and more on Monday!



Bleachable Moments Commercial
We get this random clip with Joe and Becca, like the most random combination ever. Where they spend a few minutes talking about the bleachable moments. My favorite which is when Ben H is on his horse riding one on one and he steps in poop. Joe and Becca add their unfunny random comments about these things.

Guys Fighting and Apologizing


They play the recap of the season and the first one to talk is Tanner. He calls out Ian for not getting to know any of them and therefore having no reason to say everything he said about the guys making poop jokes and being dumb. He also said he said horrible things about Kaitlyn, that are in no place okay. Corey agrees with Ian that Kaitlyn is not the most serious Bachelorette. Ben H stands up saying Kaitlyn was great and if they had more time with her they would have seen that. Ian being a real man tries to apologize and says that he regrets it all. He really stands up and takes responsibility for his actions and ends up getting a huge applause.
They next topic of conversation is Clint. Corey says he flipped a switch after night one and went from a friendly guy to suddenly arrogant. Clint says he didn't come here to make friends and that he found JJ and he reminded him of a friend back at home. JJ says anything that they are accusing Clint of that he is just as guilty. They say that it is nothing more than they are both intellectually curious about one another.

Then the conversation moves to Nick. Chris Harrison asks if Kaitlyn is at fault or if Nick is? They respect that she needed to bring him on to see if it could work out, then it is ok. Then some people think that Kaitlin did not handle the role well.

JJ in the Hot Seat
JJ said that he need to slap himself because he was so mean to Clint. Chris Harrison brings up how Kaitlyn really liked JJ, but JJ admits that he thinks he lost momentum. When JJ and Clint were together they both talked about Kaitlyn. All the guys admit that JJ was really nice once you got to know him. Then Chris asks him if he has regrets? JJ says that he didn't understand the situation and his humor was inappropriate. He regrets how he used his humor. Then Chris announces in an awkward way like JJ is about to come out, that he is on Bachelor in Paradise.

Ben Z. in the Hot Seat
Ben Z. says that he was so shocked he didn't get the rose, but he thinks it is because he closed off. He closed off after the wake group date and that could have shut down the connection between them two. Ben learned it is ok to open up in a short time, but he still hasn't cried. Chris admits that Ben shouldn't have trouble trying to find love.

Jared in the Hot Seat
Jared agrees that it's tough to hear her question her judgement, while she sends him home. But he knows that it wasn't meant to be. He fell in love with her so easily. He's so sweet and he deserves someone perfect for him. Jared is moving on on Bachelor in Paradise. He's excited to see her but it will be hard to see her. Thankfully though he got rid of the patchy beard.

Ben H. in the Hot Seat
Everyone loves Ben H., you can hear it in the crowd's applause. Chris asks if Ben H feels unlovable, and he says that he does. But He understands that Kaitlin had stronger feelings for other guys. Then Ben explains what happened in Texas. Ben, Shawn, and Kaitlyn were all together in the room. Ben went to shower, because they were leaving in half an hour and when they he got back he felt like an outsider. This pulled him back, because he was afraid of being hurt. He does admit that after this they did progress forward. 

Kaitlin's Internet Hate
Kaitlin says she likes to think of herself as tough, but all of the hate and even death threats are getting too much for her. This makes me feel so bad for Kaitlyn. Chris Harrison reads some horrible tweets. He also admits that he would have Kaitlin as a role model for his children.

Kaitlyn Talks to the Guys 
Jared as always is a great gentleman. Ben asks the most obvious question of why did she tell Shawn and not him? She says it was because she was scared Shawn would go home. Also, she admits that she compartmentalized all relationships and that made her take different steps. They say that Nick and her relationship was a slap in the face to all of them, because Nick and her had something really real. All the guys tell her that she carried on Nick drama for way to long. She is trying to make it all a joke. Ryan apologizes for everything he did wrong as a result of his drinking. Kaitlin makes jokes about Clint and JJ and how Clint was nicer to JJ than her. Ian apologizes and gives her a sweet note. I would say that he redeemed himself.

Blooper Reel
The blooper real is probably one of the most exciting part of this episode. We see a clip of Joe peeing in woods. We also see birds scaring Kaitlyn, like they have all season. Amy Shumer calls JJ out even more than she did on the regular episode. The sumo man splashes Tony. She gets some kind of buzzing bug caught in her lip gloss. 
After the bloopers, Joe dress up as pigeon and scares her. She explains why she has bird tattoos even though shes scared of birds and she explains that it's because she can't see them.

How excited are you for the finale?
Thanks for Reading,
Ashley
