The “Men Tell All” taped this past Friday in LA, and nothing huge came out of it, which is like most past Tell All shows. There’s only so much stuff you can contrive 2 months after the fact when half of these guys have already filmed a season of “Paradise,” and now you’re expecting them to carry on a storyline from when they were filming Becca’s season back in April. Here’s what you need to know.
The guys in attendance were:
6) Jean Blanc
7) Grocery Joe
-3 guys who got eliminated on night one were there: Christian, Jake, and Kamil.
-As expected, Lincoln wasn’t there. Speculation from Robert Mills appearance on the “Bachelor Party” podcast when he said Garrett would be at the MTA to address things was like I suspected, he just misspoke. He couldn’t say ATFR because that would give away Garrett is final two, so he said MTA for whatever reason. Garrett wasn’t there either.
-There was no talk all show about Lincoln and his situation or Garrett and his Instagram likes. Never brought up.
-For whatever reason, Clay, Mike the man bun and Ryan the banjo guy were not in attendance either. No reason given as to why.
-They called 6 different guys up to the hot seat:
-I can’t remember any season where we were shown 6 people in the hot seat, so I’m guessing one or two of those will get cut for time.
-I know this is gonna come as a real surprise to people, but Jordan was basically the talk of the MTA. Colton really went after him for how he acted on the show and Jordan responded by taking shots at him for coming on the show when he liked Tia. Christian jumped in and called Jordan out, they both came down to face each other, but nothing came of it.
-Apparently Jordan acted on the MTA the same exact way he acts on the show. So his interviews and blog posts about how he’s not that guy, well, he apparently doesn’t do much to dispel that notion. He said f**k you to a bunch of people and even made a comment to Colton about he can pleasure his women. Again, this guys lack of self-awareness is hilarious.
-There was back and forth between David and Jordan regarding their beef from the show. David ultimately admitted he spent too much time focusing on Jordan and not enough on Becca. Jordan essentially took over the show, talked a million miles an hour, and became the focal point of the whole taping.
-Jean Blanc got made fun of for his situation and ended up apologizing to Becca. Leo said that after Jean Blanc did that whole “I love you situation,” they would refer to future idiot decisions as Jean Blanc-ing.
-When Colton was on the hot seat, the virgin stuff got brought up and he got choked up about it. Colton said that he flew Tia out to have a date with her before her Bachelor season even aired and that was kind of it. He said she knew he was going to go on the show and when it was announced it was Becca, Tia texted him and said that Becca is a great girl, etc. at the spa date, the three of them talked it out and he thought everything was done with Tia, or that everyone had moved on from that issue. When he got sent home, he said that Becca told him Tia showed up but she said him going home didn’t have anything to do with Tia.
-From “Bachelor in Paradise,” Krystal, Eric, Bibiana, and Kendall were in the audience. They showed a preview from “Paradise.”
-When Becca came out to talk to the guys, it was pretty much all positive. Jason asked if there was anything he could do differently in future relationships and she said no. Jason said he also hopes they can become friends in real life.
-Leo said he wanted to be friends with here and that whoever she’s with they need to focus on the positive.
-Chris was the last person to speak with Becca and he apologized for the way he acted and four people from the gospel group that sang for his limo entrance came out and sang a song about Chris being dumb and being sorry.
-In the previews for the finale, they didn’t even hint at the appearance of Arie showing up, so maybe they decided to cut it out? There’s only one episode left where he can appear, and Becca has said in previous interviews that Arie showed up this season and she got her closure with him. I don’t know, maybe it is in the Maldives, but you’d think they would at least teased it if that were the case. Nothing has been teased either at the end of last night’s episode, or at clips shown during the MTA taping.
