"The Women Tell All" - For the first time ever, one of the final two women who are vying for the Bachelor's heart will make an appearance at "The Women Tell All." Courtney, who has been the woman viewers and the other bachelorettes have loved to hate all season, will return to have her chance to defend herself. Will she apologize for her behavior? Will she fight back and be her fiery self, or will viewers see another, softer side of her? It's an explosive reunion viewers won't want to miss, as the most memorable bachelorettes from this season - including Kacie B., Nicki, Jenna, Blakeley, Samantha, Emily, Monica and Rachel -- return to confront each other and Ben one last time on national television to dish the dirt and tell their side of the story. And Shawntel vents about how the women treated her when she returned to see Ben. A sneak peek at the Season Finale and the final two bachelorettes - Courtney and Lindzi - will also be featured, on "The Bachelor: The Women Tell All," MONDAY, MARCH 5 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The sparks fly immediately when the women tear into Blakeley, accusing her of not being able to make friends with any of them. Blakeley tries to defend herself, but her guard goes up again because the women just won't quit. Brittney attempts to explain how and why she took a backseat to all the drama in the house, but Samantha calls her out. And Brittney gives as good as she gets, as Samantha just can't stop talking -- even now.
Shawntel, the beautiful funeral director from Brad's season, returns to step into the hot seat. Surprising the women again, she wanted them to know how bullied she felt when she came back to try and find a connection with Ben. Emily explains how she let her dislike for Courtney get in the way of finding love with the Bachelor. Having no idea how connected Ben was to Courtney, she minces no words on how she'll lose respect for him if he is that taken with the sexy model. Nicki, the last woman to leave in tears, will confront Ben for the first time. She was relieved and excited to have those feelings for someone again after her divorce, but is worried she will go back into her shell. She had no clue that she was going home and couldn't figure out what when wrong. Will she find out? Kacie B. was blindsided too, and flew to Switzerland to get some closure from Ben. She was still a little confused, but admits that, when you are rejected twice, it's very clear.
But the women explode when Courtney makes an appearance. Is she really in love or is she just manipulating Ben? She tearfully defends herself, stressing that she was there for Ben like everyone else. What are her regrets? What would have she done differently? Many of the women aren't buying what they still consider to be an act, but Jenna offers her an olive branch and a hug.
Once in the hot seat, Ben has his hands full as he is immediately confronted by tough questions from the women. Emily demands to know why he never gave her a reason for sending her home. Jennifer wants to know why he sent her home and kept Blakeley. Does he owe Casey S. an apology for the way her sent her home after her admission about a boyfriend she couldn't get over? But Nicki still defends the Bachelor's behavior, and Jamie makes him an offer for the future.
It's the bachelorettes like you've never seen them before! The special also includes a sneak peek at the Season Finale and the final two bachelorettes -- Courtney, the controversial vixen, and Lindzi, the lovable woman who received the "first impression" rose -- who are competing for Ben's heart and the final rose.
