Season 8 of The Bachelorette is drawing to a close, and soon it will be time for Emily Maynard to make her final decision. The season finale will air on July 22, and after narrowing it down to two contenders, the rumor mill has been churning about which suitor the bachelorette will choose.
But what about the story from the men's perspective? In the upcoming Men-Tell-All episode, fans will get to hear from the men Maynard sent home, providing some insight as to what happened behind the scenes. This will also be the first time Maynard will be seeing the men since they have been sent home, and spoilers indicate that there will definitely be confrontation.
It was very emotional, and I was surprised at how emotional Chris was, the Rosemaster said to TV Guide when referring to Chris Bukowski, WetPaint reported. People will really see how special Emily is and get a sense as to why all these guys were falling in love with her.
Kalon McMahon, another one of Maynard's former contenders, will also appear to dish out the details on his feelings for 26-year-old single mother.
It wasn't as intense until Emily came out and confronted him and then it got very contentious and slightly uncomfortable, the Rosemaster added. He tried to be a wily politician, and good on her for not backing down. There's a moment that got a round of applause from the audience.
On Sunday, July 8 the bachelors gathered to film the Men-Tell-All segment, and contestant Ryan Bowers was accused of participating in the show for selfish reasons, according to The Huffington Post.
Well, yeah. Of course I did it for myself. I went on it to find love and if I find it, I'm half of that couple.
However, cast members seemed to support Bowers during this moment of confrontation, Examiner reports:
Although he had issues with a few cast members during filming, most of the men stuck up for Ryan Bowers during a heated moment with another contestant, the website reported of Bowers' encounter on the episode.
During the filming, McMahon also apologized to Maynard for referring to her daughter Ricki as baggage, which ultimately cost him his chance with the blonde bachelorette.
You could tell he didn't really mean it, a source told WetPaint. She basically said, 'Thanks, but I think you're full of sh-t.'
The two remaining bachelors, Arie Luyenduk Jr. and Jef Holm, will vie for Maynard's affection for the season finale. Third-place finalist Sean Lowe was let go last week in a surprising elimination. Steve Carbone, the blogger behind spoiler website RealitySteve predicted this decision, which could add some credibility to his other tips about the end of the show. According to the blog, Maynard and Jef left Curacao as an engaged couple, and the two are still together today.
Not sure who went home after the overnights (if anyone), not sure who (if anyone) met RIcki, not sure if the final rose ceremony has one, two, or three guys proposing, he wrote last week. I just know that Jef definitely proposed in Curacao, she accepted, and they are engaged.
It is unclear if this is true, but regardless of who wins, WetPaint said that each of the contestants remains on good terms.
At the end of the day, it didn't seem like there was any ill will, the source said. It's a TV show after all-and all the guys seemed to understand that.
The Men-Tell-All episode will air on July 16 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
