The Bachelorette Recap: Men Tell All, Fans Get Bored

by at .  Updated at .

The Bachelorette Season 11 Episode 11 saw the Men Tell All last night. Yet in doing so, they really didn't tell us much that we didn't know.

So it goes for the show's annual penultimate installment, which is basically filler designed to drag out the season and hype up the finale.

As The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, Nick Viall and Shawn Booth are the only ones still vying for the heart of Ms. Kaitlyn Bristowe.

You don't need spoilers to know that the rivalries and controversies that dominated this summer were front and center last night, though.

If you want to watch The Bachelorette online to see it all for yourself, that option is just one click away, so please, go ahead and do that.

If you want to know who Kaitlyn revealed as The Bachelorette winner weeks ago, after an amazing bedroom twist, follow that link too.

For the main takeaways from the Men Tell All, read on ...

The Brokeback Bromance of J.J. and Clint, hatched by bored producers and one of the lamest stunts ever on the show, was revisited.

The only highlight was when J.J. said there was “a lot of meat to that relationship,” which we can't tell if he meant to be a euphemism.

Ian Thomson begged for forgiveness from Kaitlyn.

And his fellow competitors. And Bachelor Nation. And the Princeton alumni association. And pretty much human civilization as a while.

He got some well-deserved crap for his behavior, but also some awkward man-hugs from those who at least appreciated the apology.

Kupah James was fired up about the fact that Nick came back on the show ... even though it happened after Kupah James got the boot.

Kaitlyn was grilled by the guys, for every reason under the sun, including by Ben Higgins, who will be the next Bachelor come 2016.

He wanted to know why she told Shawn Booth about sleeping with Nick Viall, but not him. She apologized, but the short answer?

She was more into Shawn and wanted him to know the truth.

Moreover, we learned that in Texas, when Ben and Shawn were rooming together, Kaitlyn came to pay them a visit in their abode.

Ben took a shower while she was there ... and as he did, Kaitlyn told Shawn he was “the one.” If only never bathed like Britt ...

Bullying is not okay: Host Chris Harrison used the how to make a serious point about cyber-bullying, with Kaitlyn has endured much of.

He read aloud some of the more disturbing tweets Kaitlyn received, and just not disturbing in the sense of idiots' terrible grammar.

It was pretty sobering. Fortunately, someone in the audience shouted their support and everyone gave Kait a standing ovation.

Harrison added thusly, “I will take you as a role model for my kids over anybody who would be a cyberbully and spew that kind of hate.”

Get ready for Bachelor in Paradise Season 2: "Jared’s definitely hot enough to be my first,” says Ashley I. in a promo for the new season.

That tells you all you need to know. As does the fact that Clare Crawley is going to be reunited with her raccoon friends. See you August 2.
