The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 The Men Tell All
First of all, based on the previews for The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 The Men Tell All, I certainly hope Chad get’s royalties – because ABC is loving making money off of him.
We open with an amazing preview of Bachelor In Paradise!
My take aways
Raunchy! Looks like girls gone wild. Lap dances and boob licking.
Crying Twins. Crying Ashley I. on Jared’s chest. Poor Jared. Some chick I don’t know – crying. Lot’s of crying
Lace. Oh Lace. This should be fun.
Chad eating protein. And being referred to as “The Chad”. Chad falling apart, shaking some girl in a hot tub, and bonding with Canadian Dan and then fighting.
Oh no Evan is there too. Like I didn’t think they would put the two of them on the show at the same time.
I see Jubilee screaming, and we next see Evan going to the hospital. Or at least that is what they want us to think. I wonder if we have another shirt casualty.
Growling Chad on the beach, and then Chris telling him he is making this worse than it has to be, and he yells at Chris.
We see Caila and Jared as a couple.
The twins feeling Candaian Dan’s pecks and saying they are bigger than their boobs.
Nick and Amanda together. I kind of like them together.
Jared and Ashley I, she is saying that she can’t see him with someone else…oh great.
Then Canadian Dan and Ashley I together hatching a plan to make Jared jealous.
Lace and Grant as a couple, and she says she looks like a bitch, well?
Wells is there! Yay. They show him with Ashley I. NO
I think they showed Nick with someone else too.
They show Nick picking out a ring, and say there are multiple marriage proposals.
They show Nick again with someone else – they definitely want us to question who he proposes to. I can’t place the other chick he is shown with. Maybe Jennifr from Ben’s season?
Shew. I CAN NOT WAIT.
Some of the cast is there including Nick. Chris asks if he will be this close again to finding love. He says anything is possible.
Jared – why did you go? Opportunities like this don’t come that often – actually they have for you Mr. Jared.
The Twins – Chris asks them if they are worried about dating the same guy. They have decided they won’t date the same guy – except for Nick, lol.
Jubilee – She is ready for Paradise. She hopes this turns out better than Bachelor.
Sarah and Amanda are also there, but he doesn’t talk to them.
Tuesday August 2 for the premier!
Bleach commercials with Vinny and the Twins, No just no. They were awkward.
Who is here for the Men tell All?
James S. , Grant, Ali, Brandon, Christian, Nick, Derek, James F., Daniel, Jonathan, Vinny, Evan, Wells, James Taylor, Alex, Chase, and Luke
Chad (yet), Coley, Jake, Nick S., Peter, Sal, and Will.
Well None of them left an impression on me anyway. I always wonder though, were they invited and just chose to not come? Chris plays up that The Chad is here, and will be out later.
Whoa Vinny looks HOT.
They play a bunch of clips for us. Boring let’s get to the drama and hot seats! They are playing all of the bits of peeps talking about each other. It’s gonna get good!
Derek is up first. Chris asks what was wrong with he and Alex. Derek tries to down play everything, and Saint Nick speaks up and says, well Alex was manipulative. Wells speaks up and talks about how Alex is comfortable in conflict. Luke says, well I was in the military too, and he says as a young marine you are taught to fight or flight, as you mature you can choose differently. Alex, tries to dig out, and says he is honest and not fake. Saint Nick, says the only time he saw Alex happy was when he was trying to take Chad down. I do agree, Alex did seem to like being a bully and creating conflict. They are all still obsessed with Chad.
They bring Chad out, and therefore security. They play some Chad clips. Chris asks Chad, when did things start to go bad with the guys. He says it was like a fraternity, and that the guys seemed so fake, he wasn’t willing to play along and they were talking about him constantly. He says, I couldn’t punch anyone on camera. Someone tries to talk and Chris shuts it down and says, I will open it up in a minute and turns to Chad, did you want to punch somebody? He says, I didn’t WANT to punch somebody, but there comes a point in your life when something has happened, and what else can you do. UM.
He threatens all of the guys with dirt, whenever they stand up to him. Grant calls him out about being with Robby’s and his ex. Then he calls him Darrell. LOL. Chris stops them and asks what they are talking about. He admits to dating both Robby and Grants ex girlfriends. Hope and Jen. Chris asks if he knew who they were and how that happened. He basically says, he sought them out and is still talking to both. He says he really likes both.
Nick stands up and takes his coat off and says this is the same stuff they heard in the house, and acts like he wants to fight. Canadian Dan says, typical Americans – always resorting to violence.
Nick says anytime, any place he will fight Chad. Saying he stands behind empty threats. Chris is trying to break it up (and honestly looks a bit scared). Oh he just needs a commercial break.
Looks like Sunday will have Bachelors on Family Feud – I will have to watch.
Nick and Chad are still staring each other down. Nick keeps saying Chad is a coward. Chris says, why was there so much friction between all of the guys and Chad, Alex speaks up, and says if Chad had focused on different things, things would have been different. OK. James T brings up Jordan trying to shake hands with Chad, and then Derek says, he tried too. I can’t even.
Lord get him off my TV.
Chris says, what was your beef with Alex. He says he loved the 2 on 1 date. Chris asks about Jordan, and Chad says, according to his ex-girlfriend all Jordan has ever wanted was to be famous, hmmm is that an other ex you are talking to? What about Robby, he has threatened his ex girlfriend, and said don’t talk to anyone.
Another commercial, and he is still on the couch!
Chris brings up Evan. Chad says, ask Evan. He brings up when Evan “pushed” him. Chris says, I pulled the tape. They play it again in slow motion. The audience says he did indeed, push Chad. Honestly it looks like he is just trying to get by. Poor Chad almost fell, and that was the real problem. So you punch a wall, CChris says, why do men do that? Chad says, well it is better than saying bad words. I forgot that Evan had made fun of him on stage.
Wells speaks up again and says, he feels bad for Chad and everyone. He says, the world didn’t get to see how awesome everyone was because of the black cloud of Chad. Wells says, we all did go after you and it was really justified. Chris says, honestly Chad is there anything you regret. He said no. Wells tries again. He says America loves to give a redemption story, and he hopes he takes that opportunity on Paradise. Chris brings up his mom’s death. He said she would have loved it and laughed about it all.
Luke is up. It must be torture to watch all of the clips. Chris says – what emotion is going through your min – he says it was confusing. HE says he was in love with JoJo and he still is, and he wonders if he should have said it sooner, it may have been better. IF he knows she is happy, it was all worth it. He sees that he held things back, and should have been more expressive and direct. He held back, because he wanted to make sure things would be good with his family.
Luke says, she taught him how to love again and reopened his heart. To have it end in such a shocking way. Chris brings up losing friends in the military. Luke says, tomorrow isn’t promised and he really wants the best of each day and his life. Where do you go from here? Confirms he is single. He says, he is ready. Opening there for a Bachelor invite! Chris says, JoJo is here, Luke says he is nervous about seeing her.
He is clearly still emotional and felt blindsided, and says a lot about the love word. But then says, I don’t know why she offered him the fantasy suite card. Chris asks, were you in love with her, and he says yes, and he doesn’t regret telling her. He says it was the first time he told someone he loved them, REALLY? He says he would like some closure, and that he still has a lot of love for JoJo.
JoJo comes out, looking hot in her red dress. She tells the guys that they look good, and says she likes Jon’s kilt.
After her experience with Ben, she wanted to do the best she could, and be honest and true. She had never broken up with anyone ever, before the show.
Chris asks her specifically about Luke. She says, there was an instant connection, she said that last date, something was off and didn’t feel right. Luke asks her if he had been more direct earlier, would it have made a difference. She says, she isn’t sure long term if it would have or not. But in that last date you kept saying he was falling for her, but he never said LOVE. He thanks her, and says he wants her to be happy, which made him know he REALLY loved her. She allowed him to love, and taught him how to love again.
Chase asks if he can come up on the stage, and they hug.
He says, it was a long road for him, but how it ended hurt. He asks her about the fantasy suite card. She says, she was crazy about him. He asks her why is it scary to hear the word love. She says, she did the best she could, and felt guilt about it. Chase says, don’t feel guilty.
He basically says she looks beautiful. He praises her and makes her blush.
He asks if he can talk and says, I wish you hadn’t listened to all of the guys, but he enjoyed getting to meet her and wish her the best of luck. Chad then tries to trash talk the two remaining fellows. He spouts off that Robby broke up with his girlfriend days before the show filmed, and we all know Jordan is a liar and a cheater and even his older brother won’t talk to him. Ends it with – best of luck in your relationship endeavors. Chris says, no response to her, she says well I could go off right now. They encourage her, she says, I am not gonna waste my time or breath, that is what he wants is the attention. She thanks the guys and says, she had so much fun with all of them and they treated her with such respect, OUTSIDE OF CHAD!
Nick says she looks great, and it is great to see her smile.
Alex, he says, I don’t know where you stand with how things ended, he doesn’t know how to shut things off that quickly. He says a bunch of stuff that doesn’t make sense, and everyone looks confused.
Derek says watching it back about the “reassurance”. She says, he definitely didn’t ask for the reassurance, and she hates how it was spun negatively.
JoJo compliments his beard, and says she had shaved it off. He said he never had the one on one. Some woman stood up – and said JoJo if he doesn’t have a question, I do. Turns out it was Vinny’s mom! OMG. Mommy says, Vinny would have never broken your heart.
Bloopers. My fave!
There is something after the bloopers where the guys tell us about a room where they were all flowers in there. Chris said, this is like fight club, never speak of it again or they will never have dates!
