"The Women Tell All" -
are back to the scene of the crime - well, not the
scene, per se, but the accomplices of the crime. This is
'The Women Tell All' part of the Bachelor, when we get
to see the dirt get rehashed and the catfights continue.
We start off with the series recap, and then an
appearance by Chris Harrison. Chris reminds everyone
about the new hitches in the season - and promises NEW
UNSEEN FOOTAGE. Whoooooo. We get reintroduced to all of
the Bachelorettes (and Lola), and then we get started
with the show.
We start with the most controversial woman there -
Krysta. I doubt they will make a Bachelorette series on
her, but with her personality as she trashes more women
in the NEW UNSEEN FOOTAGE, it would be much more
entertaining than this episode. She goes after all of
the women with their fake silicon boobs (if I was
allergic, I'd be dead) and then lies to Byron when she
tells him that she gets along with everyone. She says
that she wasn't afraid to put herself out there and have
fun - and she may be the first woman to not regret it.
Cynthia, one of the women that she targets, tells Krysta
that she may need silicon (ouch) while Kristie (the
Canadian woman that she went after) says that her
remarks are uncalled for. They get back into it, with
Kristie telling her to get a job.
Chris isn't done with the cattiness - we see Jayne,
Cynthia and Cheresse and Elizabeth going after each
other - and Heather and Krysta. I am guessing that the
segment was there to show everyone that they all were
catty at one point or another, as Cynthia equates the
house to inside a high school women's gym. 'Cheresse was
looking good to me'. Too. Much. Information. The footage
was meant to sooth feelings, but Amy is still hurt and
Cheresse still is resenting Krysta. In that case, this
should be really interesting when Cheresse goes after
The next person in the firing line - Jayne. We get a set
of clips of her devolving from front-runner to Byron to
front-runner for the looney bin. Jayne admits that her
actions were embarrassing, but she says that she knows
what it feels like - and it will never happen again.
Sure it won't. She says that Cheresse and Cynthia backed
her into a corner. She adds that they spoke about Andrea
and said that they were as bad as Krysta (ouch).
Cheresse says that she is offended, but if you look at
the previous episodes, Cynthia and Cheresse did indeed
talk trash and Cheresse is looking very hypocritical.
Cynthia did admit to that behavior and apologized to
Jayne. Jayne goes after Cynthia and Cheresse some more.
They both deny it, but they are both coming off badly.
Next up - Cheresse. She is still vengeful on the Fantasy
Suite. 'If you don't take the fantasy suite, you don't
get to go further', adding that he should be embarrassed
- and that he said the same thing to every girl that he
got rid of. Oh this confrontation ought to be good.
Cynthia is up next week as she joins Chris in the Hot
Seat. We get her clips of being so close - and so far,
as she gets eliminated in third. After the elimination,
Cynthia was still in shock - and she agrees with Jayne
when she thought that Byron was lying. We find out from
Chris that Cynthia called the producers to unload more
feelings to them - and we see all of that on the video
tape. We all know that Byron is backstage (as all of the
Bachelors have traditionally been in these shows), but
Byron is also watching this clip backstage. And with
Byron comes out on stage, and he goes for a hug from
Cynthia, who sits down and doesn't reciprocate the warm
advances. Cynthia - 'I don't know whether to hug him or
throw something at (him).' Byron -- 'I'm feeling
horrible' Cynthia - 'Good'.
We get to hear Byron's side. He says that it was
difficult to see the footage. Cynthia gets a chance to
talk to him and asks Byron if he wants to make out. Heh.
She wants to know why she was let go - and he said
because of the ultimatum, adding that he was still
undecided, and he didn't want to hurt her if he picked
another woman. Cynthia says that he missed out on a
great girl and wished him the best. He says that Cynthia
is a great girl and it seems like they smoothed out that
We get clips of Byron in the house - and the girls
competing after him. After that clip, it seems that
Byron has other women issues to smooth out - like
CHeresse, who asks him about the fantasy suite. Byron
answers it by saying that the suite gives someone 8-10
hours of more time to spend, and by turning that down,
they turn down time to spend with him. He wanted to
spend 8-10 hours alone in sweats eating chocolate
covered strawberries. Cheresse asks that the time they
spent wasn't enough time, adding that 'I guess...he says
that to every woman, so I guess I have to accept it', as
clearly Cheresse isn't buying what Byron is selling.
Jayne goes on the attack next, and wants to know about
the slumber party. He says that she just had a bad day
and the party wasn't a factor. Krysta was wondering why
Byron was so scared with him. Byron - 'Nobody was locked
in the same house with you.' OUCH! He says that Krysta
was just too aggressive - and to that extent he was
right. Cheresse says that she had such a good time with
the women - and she guesses the chemistry wasn't there
with Byron. Cynthia wanted to know why Byron went nuts
when she spoke about the ex, and Byron says that in the
heat of the moment.
As Byron leaves, Chris asked who voted for Jay - the guy
that the women didn't pick. Some of the women raised
their hands - and they are surprised to see Jay
reappear. He says that the moment was surreal, and he
thanks the women who voted - or considered voting for
him. He said that he went into this hoping to have a
blast , regardless of what happens - and he got it. Jay
says that the good part about not getting a rose is that
everyone knows that you are single - and available. He
also adds that he would be open for a drink of coffee.
Chris presses him to ask who was attracted to him - and
he says that Natalie, Kelly and Leina were people that
he was attracted to. He also adds as an insurance policy
that if he knew the women better, that he could have
been involved with any of the other women. Chris adds
that Jay is taking numbers after the show. Heh.
We get a preview of the final show, where Byron has to
chose between Mary and Tanya. So who will win? Well, I
thought that something that should have come up was the
addition of the new women into the show - but
surprisingly, none of that was mentioned. That means in
my mind that they didn't want to sully the winner -
especially if she was brought in the middle of the game.
Hence my thought is that Mary will win.
Am I right? Who will he choose? Will she accept? Can I
sit through 3 hours worth of finale without falling
asleep? We'll see in 7 days as we finally get a decision
- and end - of this show.
