It's Game On for the men of The Bachelorette season 9. Tonight they'll compete for Desiree Hartsock's affections over a rousing game of dodge ball. And one of them will get a special visitor.

Who will survive tonight's Rose Ceremony? Read our THG +/- recap now to find out! (Or just skip straight to The Bachelorette spoilers.)

Chris Harrison shows up at Casa de Testosterone to say there will be three dates this week: Two group dates and one one-on-one date.

There's still a lot of tension with Ben. So Bension? Minus 4 (for my terrible joke).

Chris, Brian, Drew, Michael, Brooks, Brad, Mikey, Brandon, Zack K., and Ben are invited on the first group date. None of them are impressed to be sharing a limo with Ben.

They'll be playing Dodgeball today. Here to school them in the ways of dodging and balling is a team from the National Dodgeball League. Which is apparently a thing.

This week on The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock will begin dating the men of season 9! Who will get the first solo date? Which of the guys will she take on a group date? Will there be man tears?

One thing's for sure, there will be a rap video with Soulja Boy.

We'll find out all of this and more now in our THG +/- recap. (Of course, if you don't want to wait, you can always skip ahead to The Bachelorette spoilers. We won't tell!)

The guys and their muscles move into the house and Chris Harrison explains the dating scenario. Any guy who doesn't get a rose on a one-on-one date is going home immediately.

The lucky winner of the first one-on-one date is Brooks! He looks a lot like Steve Howey so I have trouble taking him seriously. Des doesn't though, so good for her.

She picks him up in her baby blue Bentley and instead of letting him drive, she takes the wheel. Plus 8.

After being dumped by Sean Lowe during the hometown dates, beautiful brunette Desiree Hartsock is back and looking for love.

And a best friend to share life with her. And probably a little fame, too. (If this doesn't pan out, maybe she has a career as a rap artist?)

But hey, with 25 handsome and successful men flying in from all over for the chance to drink a lot of booze, spill some man tears, start some drama, all in the quest to win her hand, can we really blame her? 

Tonight she'll meet the men of The Bachelorette Season 9 and narrow the playing field down to 19 contenders. Of course, if you don't want to wait, feel free to skip ahead and read The Bachelorette spoilers to learn the identities of Desiree's Final Four.

The rest of us will be here watching what is sure to be two parts train wreck and one part treat.

Desiree Hartsock lived a humbling life, so the extravagance of the house she'll be staying in on the hillsides of Malibu, CA is quite the step up. And someone put m&ms on her nightstand. Plus 5. Where do I get somebody to do that?

Sean Lowe is still happy with his decision, The Bachelor's Chris Harrison says.

And you don't even need The Bachelor spoilers to guess the result, he adds.

"Going into the finale, I knew [who he would pick]," he told E! News this week.

That was a stark contrast from the hometown dates, when he had "no idea."

On Monday night's season finale, Sean chooses between his two finalists, Catherine Giudici and Lindsay Yenter. Opinion is split on who fans prefer.

The Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison has insisted that mercurial contestant Tierra LiCausi is not a bad person, however she can be a little dramatic.

Ya think?

Tierra has been a source of controversy this season, and criticism intensified Monday when she cried, talked $h!t and threatened to leave the show.

Her antics prompted Sean Lowe to offer her a rose to convince her to stay, which didn't help matters as far as the other women in the house see it.

How long will she last? The Bachelor spoilers we've read say ... well, follow the link if you want to know. But here's how Harrison sizes her up:

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for! No, not Jillian's return to The Biggest Loser. Not even the National Championship football game.

The Bachelor is back! Sean Lowe, jilted by Emily Maynard during her stint as the bachelorette, the 29-year-old Texan is back and looking for love.

(If you're impatient and want to jump ahead in time, it's okay. We understand check out The Bachelor Spoilers to find out Sean's rumored top 4!)

Sean Lowe as The Bachelor

He skypes with his family and runs with his shirt off! What's not to love?

(I'd like an over/under on how many times we see Sean working out this season.)

One thing's for sure: Emily should've picked Sean. Seeing how she's already called it quits with Jef with one F and Sean was so in love with her and all.

Sean says "it took a while" to get over Emily. So, in TV talk, that means 15 minutes. Minus 3.

The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum married Saturday in Pasadena, Calif.

Surrounded by family, friends and Bachelor alumni including Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, and Jason and Molly Mesnick, the couple said "I do" in an outdoor ceremony.

Officiated by franchise host Chris Harrison. Seriously.

"Today is all about our friends and family," Ashley Hebert said. "It's about standing with J.P., looking around at all the people we love in the same room there to celebrate our love."

Rumors of Ryan Lochte as The Bachelor are swirling ever since the Olympics, and last night, host-pimp Chris Harrison says he's very much open to the idea.

With a couple of caveats, that is:

  • Lochte must wear a Speedo the entire season.
  • Absolutely no peeing in pools at the mansion.

"That's part of the deal" Harrison said at The Expendables 2 premiere in Hollywood. "Did you see him in his Speedo? I mean, all of America stopped."

"It's a female driven show, come on!"

Lochte, who will guest star on 90210 this fall, said of the Speedo stipulation, "That's fine ... I usually already am. There's not much of a difference."

While conventional wisdom says the show will go with Arie Luyendyk, Jr., or Sean Lowe, Harrison says "I think it would be awesome" to have Ryan.

"If he promises not to pee in the pool, we'll be alright."

"If it gets asked, I'd definitely consider it," the 28-year-old swimmer said of looking for love on The Bachelor this winter. "So we'll see what happens."

What do you think: Ryan Lochte as The Bachelor?

Tonight the men spill the secrets of this season of The Bachelorette and single mom, Emily Maynard. They'll talk douchebaggery and heartbreak. There might even be man tears.

But will they spill the biggest secret of all? That is, will they spoil which man won Emily's heart?

Well, no. Probably not.

Oh well. The big teases.

Chris Harrison, a.k.a. Mr. Hostman, (get it? Mr. Hostman? Mr. Postman? Bring me a dream...okay, I'll stop.) reminds us that the finale will be Sunday and Arie and Jef will be absent from tonight's tell-all. But we'll get plenty of Kalon and Ryan. Joy.

Before we meet the men, Chris and Emily dish on the season. They start out rehashing Ryan's fantastic first date and following it up with every awful thing he said all season. I had such high hopes for him in the beginning. And then his ego got bigger than his heart. Minus 7.

And then we get a recap of Kalon and Emily's "West Virginia Hood Rat" send-off. He was absolutely horrifying. Minus 4 for not getting rid of him sooner.

Oh, Doug. Poor Doug. And that awful, awful excuse for a kiss. What, is he 12? Minus 2.

The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard has four sexy suitors left, but the true object affection is newly-single host Chris Harrison, a tabloid hilariously claims.

Star cites "insiders" involved with the hit ABC reality show talking about how close the pair have become, with some even saying they are "madly in love."

While this revelation is new, the "electric attraction" has caused sparks to fly from the beginning, even before Chris and wife Gwen split up this spring.

Emily Maynard, Chris Harrison

"Chris openly told staffers that Emily was the most beautiful woman he'd ever laid eyes on," said an insider, who apparently wasn't alone in noticing.

Even former contestants were aware of the potential there.

"From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys," says former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi.

"She really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too, I vacationed with Chris and his family in St. Lucia and know him well."

"He was never with his wife. He's a flirt. I guarantee Emily and Chris end up together. If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle."

Wait ... Vienna Girardi vacationed with Chris' family?

There may not be enough salt on the planet to take this report with. As for who she really picks, The Bachelorette spoilers say little about who does get her final rose next month ... though there are hints as to the final three.
