"The Bachelorette" Recap


As always the "Bachelorette" "Men Tell All" episode kicked off with a recap of the hottest button moments of the past season. Here are the highlights: 

  • DeMario proves that while he's apparently not a criminal, he is sort of sleazy. He calls the girl who showed up to his basketball date a "side chick" and brings up Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. For some reason, WaBoom decided to come to his defense. Dean sums it up best by saying he's not a bad person, he just makes some "stupid choices." Always a sweetheart, that Dean. 
  • Then we got to Lee and Kenny. Surprise, surprise, DeMario is literally the only person who immediately comes to Lee's defense. When Kenny got into the hot seat, he proved that he really was the victim in the whole feud. He also proved that he is a great dad after his daughter McKenzie came out on stage. Lucky her, she gets to celebrate her birthday in Disneyland thanks to Chris Harrison. 
  • Lee had his time in the hot seat next. The most surprising part? He didn't argue even one point against him. When sexist and racist tweets were brought up, including one where he compared the NAACP to the KKK, it took him a while but eventually he owned up to how awful he had been in the past. Anthony put it best, Lee has "racist thoughts implicitly embedded in his mentality." In a surprising turn of events, he ends his segment by hugging it out with Kenny and the rest of the guys. 
  • Dean sat with Chris Harrison next. While it wasn't eventful, Dean was understandably still confused as to why Rachel sent him home after saying she was "falling in love" with him. When Rachel faced her gentlemen, she confirmed that she was telling the truth when she said that. 
  • Otherwise, it's clear that the guys really do love and respect Rachel and there wasn't much drama aimed at her. Instead, Rachel got to address the racism on this season, telling Lee she would be "more than happy" to give him a black history lesson and a lesson on women's rights.
  • Then Chris played the obligatory blooper reel and confirmed that on the upcoming season premiere of "Bachelor in Paradise" they'll talk about everything, DeMario included. 

The season finale of "The Bachelorette" will air next Monday and the season premiere of "Bachelor in Paradise" will follow on August 14th.
