Between an awkward live ultrasound, a stage-crashing Canadian and a rehashing of this summer's racism scandal, The Bachelorette: Men Tell All episode had it all.

The quasi-reunion show featured so many twists that one of the most dramatic segments was buried in the show’s credits and almost overlooked.

Usually, the credit roll slot features some quality bloopers from that week. Fun stuff, to be sure, but nothing impactful. Not the case at all last night.

Instead, we saw host Chris Harrison enter Andi Dorfman's dressing room (or sitting area, or something) to present her with note from one of her final two.

His tone was serious, as was the look on Dorfman's face.

It's hard to glean much from the brief clip, but this didn't look like the glowing Andi we saw last night, but rather a conflicted, emotionally drained Andi.

“Between you and I, you should read it,” Chris said, handing a folded-up piece of notebook paper to Bachelorette Andi, who looked on with grave concern.

You don't need The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that this didn't necessarily take place during the Men Tell All special, despite it being packaged that way.

Andi’s wearing a different dress than she did on Monday’s show. In fact, it looks a lot like the one she's wearing in the new season finale promo (below).

This would imply the note was delivered before the proposal ...

Eric Hill's tragic death after being eliminated from The Bachelorette this season put the show in a difficult position of deciding how much attention to give it.

Do you think they went too far, or handled it just right?

Hill died following a paragliding accident about three months ago, while the ABC reality show was still filming; it didn’t change the show’s outcome.

Andi Dorfman had already sent Eric home, but the news of his passing was bound to be jarring to her, and the guys who had been hiscompanions.

The producers of The Bachelorette dedicated the season to him and put out a statement mourning his loss, both classy and appropriate gestures.

Also, to conclude the episode in which he was sent home, Dorfman and Chris Harrison reflected on Eric rather than airing the usual rose ceremony.

Some felt these things were outweighed, though, by the fact that this week, ABC also televised the moment that they told Andi about Eric Hill's death.

Every season, The Bachelorette spoilers come out before the season even airs. Nothing like the tragedy that unfolded this year has even occurred before, though.

Fans were both stunned and saddened in April at news that contestant Eric Hill died suddenly after a paragliding accident, not long after his stint on the show ended.

The late 30-year-old clearly made a lasting impression on people.

Eric Hill had gone on the first one-on-one date of the season with Andi Dorfman. While he was clearly eliminated at some point, he and The Bachelorette hit it off.

What will his death would mean for the show going forward?

The Bachelorette producers were still taping Season 10, featuring the now deceased Eric Hill. Host Chris Harrison stated the obvious when breaking his silence Friday.

Harrison told People, “It’s just a horrible, horrible thing."

Chris Harrison isn't being a hater. Just realistic.

When The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal Monday on the season finale, the pair began envisioning wedding bells.

The show's host isn't sure they will be heard.

“I mean, let's be honest. What are the odds?" Harrison said of the pair's prospects. "Most relationships don't make it down the aisle. They just don't."

“We've been on a very good run lately with Ashley [Hebert] and J.P. [Rosenbaum] and I'm fully convinced Sean [Lowe] and Catherine [Giudici] will."

“But married? I don't know. The odds are no, but you never know.”

There's never been a season quite like this one, which has left fans clueless, up in arms and clamoring for The Bachelorette spoilers heading into the finale.

In part one of the two-part, five-hour season-ender, leading lady Desiree Hartsock was awkwardly, painfully dumped by her first choice, Brooks Forester.

She has two guys left, but having basically admitted that her feelings for Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried aren't on that same level, what will she do now?

ABC has not released a single clip beyond Desiree talking to host Chris Harrison to talk about Brooks' exit. How the heck are they going to fill 2-3 hours?

Harrison teases that “There's nothing typical about this finale.”

No kidding. But does Brooks Forester come back or what?

Following last week's hometown visits and elimination of Zak Waddell, it's time for The Bachelorette season 9 men to tell all before the season's shocking finale!

Do James and Ben have unfinished business? Will Zak get the closure he wants? Will we get any hints as to which gentleman Desiree chose, if she chose one at all?

The Bachelorette spoilers are abuzz with rumors of both heartbreak and engagement and we've got only two weeks to go before we reach the end (or the beginning) of Desiree Hartsock's fairy tale. Let's hear what the men had to say now!

Chris Harrison introduces the special and only drops 1 "for the right reasons" and none "fairy tales." Plus 3.

Des and Chris crashed some at-home Bachelorette viewing parties. It's...kind of weird. Des drops the words "fairy tale" and isn't at all worried or shocked or scared at how well the women at the girl's nights know her. Not freaked out at all. 

She teams up with J.P. and Ashley to crash some parties in New York. And then the Mesnicks show up. Trista's looking...older. 

There have been 26 seasons of this franchise. Twenty. Six. That's some dedication to ratings love. Plus 8.

Does Desiree Hartsock's quest for love end with her choosing no one?

The Bachelorette spoilers have given a pretty strong indication of who the favorite is, but that doesn't mean she won't end up right where she started.

Des Image

Asked recently if the guy Desiree chooses is a better fit for her than Bachelor Sean Lowe, franchise host Chris Harrison paused and then mused:

"Um, well, it depends on if she ends up with anybody."

Hence the rumor that she picks no one in the end.

"We haven't said anything about how the season ends," Harrison says, "but I can tell you that Des is in for an emotional, wild ride before we get to the end."

"It's definitely not what everybody is going to think."

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?
