For perhaps the first time in Bachelor history, the “Women Tell All” episode featured very little drama or tension between the rejected suitors.
Rather, it was Juan Pablo himself in the hot seat on Monday night’s revealing segment, which had all the past contestants questioning his true motives – and pointing out examples of his hypocrisy throughout the season.
Renee: We were thrilled to discover there was a silver lining to Renee’s tearful journey. The sweet, single mom – who was sent packing after the hometown dates – has revealed that she’s now engaged to a man she’s known since she was a teenager (in fact, her now-fiancé was her first kiss!). So adios and good riddance, Juan Pablo – no more besitos for you.
Andi: Rehashing her grievances from last week’s episode, hard-hitting lawyer Andi reiterated: “He’s not insincere… he’s just not interesting or very smart.” Then she admitted that she pretended to fall asleep to get the date over and done with — all to which Juan Pablo predictably replied, “it's okay.”
Thankfully, producers put together a fabulous “it's okay” montage to appease an infuriated Andi, who is poised to become next season’s Bachelorette.
Sharleen: Classy Canadian Sharleen clearly came out on top at the end of this episode. Described by Chris Harrison as “the most intriguing contestant we’ve ever had on the show,” the shy opera singer had nary an unkind word to say about our embattled Bachelor. Instead, she was poised and elegant as ever as she fielded questions from Chris and the peanut gallery, and endearingly covered her eyes when shown video footage of her kissing Juan Pablo on the show.
On those homophobic remarks: She may not have gotten a one-on-one with Chris Harrison, but Kelly still had a bone to pick with Juan Pablo. The self-proclaimed "dog lover," who has a gay parent, took the Latino bachelor to task on his controversial comments, in which he claimed gay people are “more pervert.” Juan said his comments were taken out of context and promised to speak with her backstage after the show, rather than explain himself then and there.
It airs Monday at 8 p.m. on OMNI.
