With that out of the way, let’s get into the spoilers, starting with tonight’s Men’s Tell All episode. ABC’s official synopsis of the episode reads:
It’s an exciting, unpredictable reunion viewers won’t want to miss as the most memorable bachelors from this season – including Adam, Alex, Dean, DeMario, Fred, Iggy, Jack Stone, Jonathan, Josiah, Kenny, Lee, Lucas, Matt and Will – return to confront each other and Rachel one last time on national television to dish the dirt and tell their side of the story. A look back at the most memorable moments in “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All” history is presented. Finally, as the clock ticks down on Rachel’s journey to find love, an up-close-and-personal look at her final three guys.
Tonight, Rachel Lindsay will be addressing race issues during the Men’s Tell All and she has told Entertainment Tonight that she has some choice words in mind for one specific contestant. Lindsay said she isn’t nervous, but she definitely feels differently about contestant Lee Garrett, who was the designated villain this season. She says that she doesn’t have any questions for the suitor, but she does have “something to say.” As for Lindsay’s falling out with contestant DeMario Jackson, she says that she’s already said everything she needed to say when he was on the show. Lindsay explained to People:
I think I pretty much laid it all out the last time I saw DeMario, so I have no questions, nothing to say, no emotions. “If he has something to say, I’ll listen. But I said my piece.
Though Lindsay says she doesn’t have much to say to DeMario Jackson about his alleged girlfriend on the show, she does confront him on the Men Tell All Special. And, Jackson does get in the hot seat to defend himself. ABC has revealed:
Things heat up immediately when DeMario tries to defend himself about the claims that Lexi was his girlfriend even as he came on “The Bachelorette” to woo Rachel. According to him, he was an innocent victim, but was he?
When it comes to Bachelor in Paradise, Lindsay hopes that the alleged sexual misconduct scandal will not be addressed, though it does concern one of her cast-offs, DeMario Jackson. For a few weeks, Jackson’s part on the Men’s Tell All Special was not determined, but it has been confirmed that he will be present. Jackson explained why to TMZ, saying:
For me, I owe it to my cast mates. They’ve been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to all thank them, face to face, give them all hugs, bro-out, sis-out or whatever.
For those living under a rock, there were allegations of sexual misconduct between Jackson and Corinne Olympios during filming of the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise. Jackson voiced that he lost his job over the scandal. Fortunately, Warner Bros.’ investigation found no issue of misconduct. BIP resumed filming and will premiere on August 14, 2017 in a two-night event.
Another contestant who Lindsay may have some words for is fan-favorite Dean Unglert, who has said on the show that he wasn’t fond of reported winner Bryan Abasolo. Unglert also told ET that he thinks Lindsay is “in lust” with Abasolo because Abasolo “says all the right things at all the right times.” Peter Kraus was vocal on the show this season about his feelings towards Abasolo as well. When it comes to the Men Tell All Special, what ABC reports is that:
In a heart-wrenching moment, Dean explains that he really was falling in love with Rachel and that he always will love his father regardless of how long it will take before they can come to some resolution in their relationship. Rachel will have to face the bachelors she sent home brokenhearted for the first time. She tries to explain what it is like to juggle multiple relationships and attempts to tell Dean that she really was falling in love with him. But will fan-favorite Dean understand why she sent him home?
As for what happens on the finale, originally, Reality Steve reported that Peter Kraus was this season’s winner. However, he later corrected his report and stated that Bryan Abasolo is supposedly the real winner. Reality Steve explained:
I say every season, I’m only as good as the information I get. I had no reason not to believe my source when they initially told me it was Peter in the end. But when I was tipped off to a wrong spoiler last week, and we both looked into it further, they realized they’d made a mistake and that it’s Bryan.
