DRAMA KINGS
- Who are Katie Thurston’s final four on The Bachelorette?
- What happened to Bachelorette star Michael Allio’s wife?
- What did Bachelorette star Andrew Spencer’s old tweets say?
- Has Kaitlyn Bristowe had plastic surgery?

EPISODE eight of Katie Thurston's season of the Bachelorette features the 'Men Tell All' special.

A preview of tonight's episode revealed this season's villain Karl Smith getting grilled by the men for framing multiple contestants as clout-chasers.

In previous episodes, Karl was seen telling Katie that multiple men were there for the wrong reasons, leading Katie to suspect she was dating men who had bad intentions.

In the 'Men Tell All,' the men attempt to set the record straight. However, because Karl never gave Katie any names of which men he suspected, he was able to say that it was only Thomas Jacobs that he was talking about.

In a previous episode, Thomas had revealed that he was on the show in hopes of eventually becoming the next Bachelor.

  • FANS SLAM KATIE’S RELATIONSHIP WITH BLAKE

    Earlier this month, Bachelorette fans slammed Katie Thurston’s relationship with Blake as they “dread” another Clare Crawley and Dale Moss-style ending.

    After arriving mid-season to shake things up, Blake immediately got a one-on-one date, and their romance heated up fast.

    The duo went on their first date together and got lost in the New Mexico wilderness on a pair of horses.

    While many fans could not deny their chemistry, they dreaded where the season appeared to be headed similar to the last Bachelorette season with Clare and Dale.

  • HOW MANY SUITORS ARE LEFT?

    Bachelorette Katie Thurston has yet to choose between four eligible suitors.

    The lucky gentlemen include Michael Allio, Greg Grippo, Blake Moynes, and Justin Glaze.

  • SPOILER REVEALED GREG GRIPPO’S FATE

    Serial spoiler Reality Steve revealed Greg’s fate as he enters hometowns as one of Katie Thurston’s final four.

    According to the reality television spoiler king, Greg wants to confront Katie because he “felt he got some sort of assurance from Katie he was the one or felt he’d be picked, yet he couldn’t understand why she was still involved with other men.”

    Reality Steve calls the fight a “literal meltdown” that goes back and forth for hours.

  • WHEN IS TONIGHT'S EPISODE?

    The Bachelorette will air tonight at 8pm ET for two hours.

    Tonight's episode of Season 17 is the “Men Tell All” special.

    It can be watched on ABC.

  • TEASER SHOWS MICHAEL ALLIO CONSIDERING QUITTING

    In a clip posted to Instagram by the show’s official account, Bachelorette Katie Thurston breaks down in tears as Michael Allio considers quitting.

    In a heartbreaking phone call with his son, the single dad is visibly distraught telling the toddler: “I miss you like crazy buddy.”

    Audio can be heard of his son saying: “Maybe Daddy don’t want to see me.”

    Tonight, the men get to hash out their feelings in an “explosive” Men Tell All special where Katie comes face-to-face with her exes.

  • WHO WILL STAR ON THE NEXT SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?

    The next season will star Michelle Young, a former contestant on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor.

    During James’ season, Michelle was the runner-up to final rose winner Rachael Kirkconnell.

    Born June 3, 1993, Young is currently 28-years-old and works as an elementary school teacher.

    She was named new Bachelorette alongside Katie Thurston after James’ season ended.

  • WHAT HAPPENED IN LAST WEEK'S EPISODE?

    In last week’s episode, Katie immediately regretted her choice to eliminate Andrew Spencer as she begged him to stay.

    Despite chasing down the 26-year-old through the hotel as he exited the show, Katie could not convince her suitor to stay after he admitted to feeling “displaced” by her dismissal.

  • RIGHT REASONS?

    Fans are slamming finalist Andrew Spencer for joining the show for “the wrong reasons” after he previously claimed he wanted to be the next Bachelor. 

    In a tweet back from 2014, Andrew, 26, wrote with a smirk: “Let me be the next Bachelor.” 

    The social media post raised a lot of eyebrows with fans - as a big theme for Katie, 30, this season has been men there for “the right reasons.”
