‘The Bachelor: Women Tell All’ Recap: Old Catfights Resume and Michelle’s Redemption

Posted In: Brad Womack - Season 15, Reality TV, The Bachelor

By Krissy Dolor

Before we get the pleasure of seeing next week’s final rose ceremony, we must first cross one last bridge: the infamous “Women Tell All” episode, where both the Bachelor in question and his dearly departed bachelorettes reflect (and awkwardly watch back) the ridiculous moments that made them famous.

While it’s no surprise that old beef between Raichel and Melissa continued to stew, the night’s big shocker was Michelle’s – dare we say it? redemption – which, of course, made for excellent television.  So without further adieu, let’s dig right in to last night’s episode:

Cupid Exclusive!

With The Bachelor final rose ceremony less than a week away, single women are placing their bets on who they think ABC’s two-time Bachelor, Brad Womack, will give that final rose to on March 14.

It’s down to this season’s two fan favorites: soft-spoken southern mother Emily Maynard and sassy, slaphappy divorcee Chantal O’Brien.  Based on Womack’s infamous dumping of both DeAnna Papas and Jenni Croft in season 11, many fans wonder if he’ll leave his final two picks heartbroken as well.

While everyone has an opinion, nobody can be sure what will happen.  Even Bachelor reality TV spoiler sites like Reality Steve have reported different endings before next week’s season finale.  That’s why Cupid’s Pulse took this question to the experts: six rose-loving revelers from past seasons – David Good, Natalie Getz, Tenley Molzahn, Kiptyn Locke, Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth Kitt.

After all, who better to ask than former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants who appeared not once, but twice (just like Womack) on the Bachelor franchise?  Each of them competed last summer for a chance to win $250,000 on ABC’s Bachelor spin-off show, Bachelor Pad – which Chris Harrison officially announced will return this year for a second season during last night’s The Women Tell All episode.

The verdict: None of the former reality stars chose fan favorite Emily Maynard, who 83 percent* of Cupid’s Pulse readers picked as their favorite for Brad in this week’s poll.

Here’s who the former contestants chose and what they had to say about it:

The vacation destination theme continued on week six of ABC’s The Bachelor as Brad Womack and the remaining eight bachelorettes took another trip – this time, to Costa Rica.  With the lush green landscape, a waterfall and a volcano view from The Springs Resort and Spa, what’s not to like about week six?

Simple: Michelle, who, despite all her complaining and minor physical assault on Brad, is still in the running to be his wife.  But we’ll get to her later.

As we mentioned earlier today, we got a chance to watch last night’s episode of ABC’s The Bachelor with Bachelor Pad winner and author of The Man Code, David L. Good.  The event was at the Village Pourhouse in downtown New York City, and many ladies (and a few gents) came out to talk to David, take pictures, check out his book and watch the fifth episode with him.  I have to admit, it was both cool and weird to watch the show with a former contestant – as you guys remember, David was on season 5 of The Bachelorette with Jillian Harris.  Hearing David’s take definitely added a unique perspective.  Read on for our recap of last night’s episode and his advice for season 15 contestant Brad Womack:

‘The Bachelor’ Season 15 Heads to Las Vegas!

There’s nothing like a trip to Sin City to amp up the drama on ABC’s The Bachelor!  From the looks of the preview below, Michelle digs her claws even further (if possible) into Brad Womack, everyone is crying (what else is new) and – surprise, surprise – someone wants to go home.  But this time, it’s Chantal!  I wonder if she’ll stay, or if she’ll follow in Madison’s footsteps and leave Brad in the dust.  Don’t forget to watch The Bachelor with us next Monday, Jan. 31 at 8 PM/7 PM Central Time to find out what happens, and follow us on Twitter: @cupidspulse.  Word on the street is that Cupid has a little something up his sleeve for next week.

This week’s episode of ABC’s The Bachelor began with Michelle and her mysterious black eye.  “Who wakes up with a black eye?” she asked.  An attention-hoarder, that’s who.  And because of this, Michelle’s automatically entitled to a one-on-one date with Brad Womack, right?

Looks like I spoke too soon in judging Madison, The Bachelor’s resident fang girl.  It turns out that yes, one of Brad Womack’s 17 remaining bachelorettes left the mansion for good, and I must admit that after last night’s episode, I wish that Madison had given herself a chance and stayed.  But more on that later.

The first date card, which said, “Let’s find our love song,” went to Ashley S..  This date was crucial as  Ashley S. received the first impression rose during the season premiere.  Brad took her to Studio A of Capital Records, where they sang a terrible rendition of Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose.”  And when I say terrible, I mean God-awful.  However, the couple looked like they were having a blast and were completely relaxed in each other’s company, despite the ear-splitting noise that was coming out of their mouths.  “I picked the perfect girl to do this date with,” said Brad.

But we all know that Brad (and the producers of ABC) always have a little trick up their sleeves, so phase two of Ashley’s date was a serenade from Seal himself.  Lucky!  The couple canoodled in the corner while Seal reminded us why we’re jealous of Heidi Klum.  The date ended with a romantic dinner on the rooftop of Capital Records, where (surprise, surprise) Ashley S. opened up to Brad about her father, who died of a brain aneurysm.  Ashley told Brad that she “felt like he was here tonight.”  With Brad being a new man and all, he loved that Ashley opened up to him and gave her the first rose of the night.  In fact, he said afterward, “Ashley has far exceeded my expectations…she’s the whole package.”  Is this a possible wife alert?

‘The Bachelor’ Season Premiere Recap: Brad Womack is Back!

By Krissy Dolor

This season of ABC’s The Bachelor has officially begun, and after last night’s episode we can already tell it’s going to be a doozy.  Brad Womack has spent the past three years soul searching, trying to get his life back on track after his infamous decision to say goodbye to both Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas.

“I hit rock bottom,” said Brad last night. “I was a broken man.”

Brad opened up about his experience in therapy, and found the root of his phobias of commitment – his father’s abandonment.  And because of this, he said, “I don’t know if I’ve let someone know the real me.”  Realizing that he’s been a closed off-person, Brad has learned that in order for him to truly fall in love is to be vulnerable.  And he to wants to prove to America – and most importantly, himself – that he can be a better person.

Regardless of what America thought about Brad before tonight’s episode, it’s apparent that he’s back on The Bachelor for the right reasons.  He sounded earnest whenever he spoke about trying to prove himself and teared up each time he mentioned his father.  When he talked to Bachelor host Chris Harrison, Brad often tripped over his words, and seemed genuinely nervous to be back at the mansion again.  Fidgety, playing with the back of his head, Brad looked visibly uncomfortable – and even more so when Jenni and DeAnna were brought out to meet him.
