'The Bachelor: Women Tell All' special: Michelle Money ripped apart by wolves ... er, the women
At the reunion special, Chris starts the reunion with footage from a "Bachelor" franchise party from New York plus talk of "Bachelor Pad 2," which is going to air this summer. We see all the greatest hits - Vienna, Rozlyn, Kasey the Heart Protector, Wes, Ashleigh, Krisily and Gia, who basically calls Vienna a skank, which - we aren't going to argue with you.
It's finally time for the actual Women Tell All portion of the evening. Here are some highlights:
- Ashley H. has some seriously dark hair, which I'm not sure about yet. It's a dramatic change. The women descend on Michelle like hyenas on a gazelle carcass and it's pretty wonderful. Michelle can insist she's "funny" and "sarcastic" all she wants - if she was funny, I would've laughed more. She came across as petty, immature and catty.
- There is some time given to Melissa vs. Rachel, but um - who even cares? They both went home early, neither of them is even a blip on the radar anymore. Why do we want to find out more about that conflict?
- Baby-voiced 15-year-old Ashley S. gets a segment. Are they trying to gauge response on her for next Bachelorette? Because she kind of annoyed me and I don't know why her exit is being touted as so heartbreaking. Is it because she got punched "in the stomach. And the heart"?
- Back to the new dark-haired Ashley H. She seems to have had a personal transformation since maybe her defense mechanisms made her lose out on a great guy. After Chris Harrison asks her what she wants to say to Brad, she hilariously drops her voice and goes, "That I love him" and then a bit later she drops her voice again and says, "I feel like a changed woman." Uh, she's being so winning! In the span of five minutes, she has convinced me she'd be a fun Bachelorette to watch.
- Brad comes out and he says he'll defend Michelle until he's blue in the face. He also says her interviews were funny. Hmph.
- Brad and Ashley have a nice reconciliation and Brad also talks about a visit to a preschool they made in South Africa, which is cool.
- Brad then insists he is in love and that he falls more and more in love with the woman he chose every day.
- There is a delightful outtake reel that I can't even do justice in trying to describe, so I will not try.
- We then get a preview of the finale. Chantal and Emily each get a segment. Who do you think Brad is going to choose? I think Chantal is the better match for him.
