One week before Jillian Harris has to land her decision on who she would want to marry, "The Bachelorette" airs a special episode. Bringing back the guys whom Jillian has dumped in the previous weeks, the episode is called "Men Tell All" and it shows the guys' side of story.
As many as 13 guys, including foot fetish Tanner P., punch bag Juan and least favorite contestant Dave got the call back to appear in the episode. Missing from the line-up were Reid, who was eliminated last week, and Wes whom the producers didn't invite back due to a specific reason.
"Wes did originally decline coming on the show. At the eleventh hour he had a change of heart and wanted to be on the show," host Chris Harrison explained, adding "Wes had called several of the guys to make sure they would back him up if he came back and only then did he call and ask to be back on the show. ...He doesn't matter in the grand scheme of Jillian's life so there's no reason to put up with any more of his Texas sayings and shenanigans."
Still, Wes' presence was felt when the guys discussed about Jake's decision to spill that Wes had a girlfriend. The other 12 guys criticized him for throwing Wes under the bus and for the fact that he "pulled a Mesnick", which is crying on the show in reference to the latest Bachelor, Jason Mesnick. However, Jake received support from the female-packed audience who cheered on him.
There was also the discussion of Dave and his "Man Code". Regarding this Chris blogged, "I have to say I was very happy and a little impressed that he apologized to Jillian about the way he acted. Although it was a very heartfelt, sincere apology, the problem is to this day he still doesn't understand what he did wrong. He doesn't get that you just don't treat women like that and you certainly don't put them in that position."
Also featured on the episode was an update of Jason and Molly from "The Bachelor". The couple who famously edged out Melissa Rycroft last season, told the audience that they are still together after 6 months. Although they are still living apart, the lovers said there is a plan for marriage. "I would marry Jason tomorrow. I'm so crazy about him. I know I want to spend the rest of my life with him," Molly testified.
Next week on "The Bachelorette" season 5 finale, Jillian will choose between Kiptyn and Ed. Chris Harrison promised that this would be "the most dramatic finale EVER!!!!!"
