According to ABC, tonight’s Men Tell-All episode gives a preview of Bachelor in Paradise. Some of the men who are a part of the new Bachelor in Paradise season, include Colton Underwood, Jordan Kimball and Wills Reid, according to Reality Steve.
When it comes to some of the fights going on during the Men Tell-All, ABC has reported that, “Colton and Jean Blanc waste no time throwing shade at each other and trading explosive barbs. Chris Harrison attempts to get the bottom of why the guys really didn’t like Jordan and his golden underwear, but Jordan goes on the attack. What was behind the animosity between Jordan and David? David accuses Jordan of not being serious about his pursuit of Becca. Jordan sticks to being his unapologetic, confident self.” Reality Steve has reported that Jordan told several people, “Fuck you,” at the Men Tell-All and that he acts the same way as he does on television.
As for Colton’s fighting with Jean Blanc, he told Variety that, “I think you could tell that were some definitely some unexpected things that went on and happened and some emotions that I wasn’t expecting to have tonight. It took a lot of self restraint to stay in my seat when Jean Blanc made that comment because it was something that was so uncalled for, so unnecessary, so disrespectful to not only me but everybody out there in the way he verbalized the female anatomy.”
The men who were called up to the “hot seat” for one-on-one questioning by host Chris Harrison were Chris, Joe, Jordan, Wills, Colton and Jason. During Chris’ sit down, he talks about how downward spiral when it came to his relationship with star Becca Kufrin. When Chris comes face to face with Kufrin, he apparently has some unexpected words. Contestant Joe was let go early, but he’s become a favorite with fans, so he gets his moment as well, according to Reality Steve.
Several men in the “hot seat” talk about their heart break. Wills, Jason and Colton are three of the “heartbroken” men with questions. ABC has reported that, “Wills shares his intimate thoughts about Becca and how difficult it was for him to be sent home. Does he still have more questions about his agonizing goodbye in the Bahamas? Colton, who is still defending his decision to remain a virgin with the men, discusses that life choice. And in one of the most heartwrenching moments, a tearful Jason says he was flat out blindsided when Becca said goodbye to him on the eve of the fantasy suite. Is he still in love with her?” Contestant Jason Tartick has been rumored to be a front-runner for the next star of The Bachelor 2019.”
After appearing on the Men Tell-All, Jason talked about how he’s been honored to have fans and he gushed about the experience to Variety, saying, “I had such a great experience on this journey. I fell in love in a place I never thought I would, and although it didn’t work out in my favor, I would absolutely be willing to take that step up because I feel like I’m in the best position to find love. I would be open to that.”
ABC has reported a surprise guest tonight, so fans will have to wait and see what happens …
