Many memorable castoffs from The Bachelorette, along with Ashley Hebert herself, took the stage in the show's Men Tell All pre-finale special last night.

As expected, there were some fun exchanges, but no real fireworks, with too much time spent on early season figures and Bentley not even showing.

For the latest on tonight's season finale, check out The Bachelorette spoilers we've put together. Now, for THG's +/- Bachelorette Men Tell All recap:

One Hot Bachelorette

Chris H.: "This has been one of the most controversial, talked about seasons of The Bachelorette ever." Pretty sure he leads with that every summer. Plus 10.

If you've watched this season, the filler/replayed clips are exhausting. Minus 7.

The bloopers/deleted scenes were fun, however, with Jeff (a.k.a. The Mask) doing chores around the mansion being the best. So domestic! Plus 6.

At times, she wondered if this was all a mistake. But in the end, The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert says she found the happy ending she dreamed of.

This summer, we've seen Ashley roasted to her face, ridiculed and jerked around by Bentley Williams, and ditched by two other men late in the season.

Her take on those ups and downs? All's well that ends well.

Sweet Ash

"There were certainly moments where I thought I'd made a mistake agreeing to be the Bachelorette and thought it wasn't going to end well," she said.

"But you come out a stronger person and learn so many things about yourself. Ultimately, I know I did the right thing. I'm so happy, so in love."

"I found a great man. It's going strong – we've been hanging out and talking all the time. I hoped I would leave with this type of relationship."

With the season finale looming Monday night, Hebert is anxious to go public with the identity of the last man standing - but is it Ben or J.P.?

"I'm really ready for this to be over so we can go into the light of day and get on with normal everyday life," the 26-year-old Maine native says.

Who do you think she should pick of the final two?

THG Asks!

Welcome to THG Asks, a feature in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Who should Ashley Hebert choose on The Bachelorette season finale, Ben or J.P.?

BEN by Free Britney

He doesn't look like a stereotypical reality show hunk. Heck, he looks like a less handsome version of Constantine.

He uses phrases like "ruh-roh." He talks about his deceased father too much. He took his sweet time before he would truly open up to Ashley.

Frustrating? At times, yes. But all of these things are part of what make Ben Flajnik so human, so appealing, and the obvious choice for our girl.

There's no facade with Ben, a funny, smart, free-spirited Sonoma winemaker with a lot of heart (no matter how closely he guarded it for weeks).

He's the genuine article. Ben isn't fling material. He's husband material, a complex, nurturing guy with whom love can actually Evolve over time.

Hopefully, Ashley picks Ben and all he brings to the table on Monday's finale. If not, I bet come January, ABC can find 25 other girls who would.

Can Ben pull off the upset on Monday's finale?

J.P. by Hilton Hater

If I had a nickel for every time JP Rosenbaum and Ashley Hebert have made out on The Bachelorette this season, I'd have more money in my bank account than Chris Harrison gets for playing the most pimp-like host on TV.

These two have serious, lip-locking chemistry!

While others clearly came on for the wrong reasons (eat it, Bentley!), JP is as nice and honest as any contestant in recent memory. Has this made for especially entertaining TV? Not every week. But the show is about love, not ratings.

JP has all the physical attributes Ashley could want in a mate, as well. He's easy on the eyes and he resides in nearby NYC, just a quick car ride away. Might he be living a double life? Sure. But no guy is perfect.

THG Asks you ... who should Ashley choose?

Because The Bachelorette took July 4 off, the remainder of the season has been condensed, with the Men Tell All filler special airing Sunday.

Monday, the season finale and After the Final Rose will air.

Useless as the Men Tell All can be there's a lot to discuss this season, if they actually go there: Guys dumping Ashley Hebert and not vice versa, Ryan coming back for seemingly no reason, the debacle that is Bentley, etc.

Ashley Hebert and Ames Brown

Ashley thinks the next Bachelor should be ... Ames?

According to reports, they delve into a fair amount, and Ashley says it was "good to get closure" despite seeing how hurt some guys were.

Asked who would be the best star of The Bachelor, Ashley said Ryan Park and Ames Brown. As if Ryan's energy level and ego needed that.

Ryan responded that he "believes in the process of the show," and while his life is just so great, he has no one to hold hands with. Sniff.

Both The Bachelorette spoilers and conventional wisdom have had J.P. Rosenbaum in the final two all season - but is Ashley Hebert making a huge mistake?

We won't say anything more about whether J.P. is in fact the winner (follow the link above for the latest on that), but In Touch says he's living a double life!

Not only is he on the show for the wrong reasons - according to a low-rent tabloid - but he's in love with his ex! And there was a celeb hookup of some sort!

J.P. Rosenbaum Cover

It's an interesting report, given how smitten JP has seemed all season. The guy can't even handle other guys dating Ashley Hebert - on a TV show whose entire premise is other guys dating Ashley Hebert - without getting pissed!

Of all the contestants, JP seems the most genuine and interested in Ashley (fellow finalist Ben Flajnik is a close second). So no matter what you might think of their relationship, we'd take any reports of his duplicity with a boulder of salt.

Does this change your view of the show's finale this Monday night (August 1)? Of the final two, who do you think Ashley should choose?

"I know what the fantasy suite means and what it implies. I knew if I got to this point and I wasn't in love with you, I wouldn't accept the fantasy suite. I have too much respect for you, for myself, for my family and ultimately your family also."

With these words, Constantine Tzortzis left The Bachelorette, having made all the way to the penultimate episode, only to conclude it wasn't working out.

While he caught us off guard, Ashley Hebert wasn't shocked.

"After such a great hometown date, I was excited to see Constantine again," she tells People. "This was a critical time for us. We needed to  figure things out. Throughout most of the date, I felt a huge disconnect with him."

"I quickly realized I was holding out, looking for a romance between us that will never be there ... Although I was willing to use every last minute to see if time was what we needed, Constantine didn't surprise me by saying goodbye."

What Ashley Hebert did worry about, though, were the others.

Last night's episode of The Bachelorette saw two men sent packing, with two remaining to vie for the final rose and a lifetime with Ashley Hebert.

We began the evening with only three dudes with Ms. Ashley in Fiji, but the surprise return of a former contestant shook things up once again.

The Bachelorette spoilers accurately predicted who came, and who left, but that didn't make it less compelling - or bizarre, at times - to watch.

The Woman in Command

From a picnic under a magnolia tree to a trip to the family restaurant, the guys pulled out all the stops to win over Ashley. But would it be enough?

Who's in? Who's out? Who's the favorite in next week's season finale?

Let's break down last night's overnight dates and all things Ashley, Constantine, J.P., Ben and ... find out in THG's official +/- Bachelorette recap:

Three men remain on The Bachelorette: JP, Ben F. and Constantine.

Only one will win the heart of the show's leading lady. Ashley Hebert is engaged, but to whom? How did it all go down? Life & Style claims that it knows!

Ash was allegedly spotted with the winner earlier this summer, and the cover below certainly makes it APPEAR as though that winner is J.P. Rosenbaum.

You know these tabloids and their misdirection, though. It doesn't actually say she's engaged to J.P., and those could be separate pictures. However ...

  • Ashley Proposal Secrets
  • Rose-Bearer

Filmed on a secluded shore of Fiji at the Vomo Island Resort, Ashley was wearing a long sequined pale-pink gown surrounded by tropical flowers, L&S says.

As the winner proposed with a stunning modern-style 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond ring, with tears in her eyes, Ashley said yes! It was simply magical.

Unlike past seasons, in the months since the proposal, Ashley and her fiancé have been seeing each other and it's keeping their romance going strong.

Last night's episode of The Bachelorette meant hometown heartbreak for poor Ames. That guy rules, but from Ashley's point of view, there just wasn't a spark.

That leaves just three men vying for her heart in Fiji ... or does it?

The previews for next week show a familiar face appearing out of the blue in the island nation. The Bachelorette spoilers we've come across hint at who it is.

Skip past the rose ceremony and see if you can venture a guess:

Is if Ashley didn't have enough on her plate, now she's got to deal with this. After the jump, we'll fill you in on what we know, or what we think we know ...

Four hometown dates. Three roses.

Those were the stakes Monday for Ashley Hebert, who narrowed the field to three and left one guy devastated after her cross-country tour.

The Bachelorette spoilers accurately predicted which one got the axe, but that didn't make it any less compelling - or sad - to watch unfold.
