The Bachelor: The Women Tell All, which featured Peter Weber and most of the bachelorettes he had denied roses to during The Bachelor’s 2020 season, was controversial, explosive and heartwarming all at the same time.
Monday night’s The Women Tell All special for Peter’s season of The Bachelor might’ve had more drama and catty behavior than ever before, especially thanks to Tammy Ly and the issue she had with multiple girls.
But also, Kelsey Weier preached how it’s perfectly fine to be vulnerable and emotional, shutting down haters and trolls.
And Victoria Fuller took the hot seat and cried to The Bachelor host Chris Harrison about how her relationship with Peter might have been different had she dropped her walls sooner and let him love her the way he wanted to.
When Peter sat in the hot seat, he was a bit overwhelmed to see his ex-girlfriends all in one room, but he was able to give a few bachelorettes closure they needed. Peter was open about the fact he had made a lot of mistakes this season but attempted to follow his heart the whole way through.
Below is a list of highlights from The Bachelor: The Women Tell All broadcast:
Chris Harrison teases The Bachelor finale
The Bachelor: The Women Tell All broadcast began with footage of Peter eliminating Victoria F. and giving his Final 2 roses to Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett in Australia.
Chris then teased Peter’s two-night finale next week airing on Monday, March 9 and Tuesday, March 10.
“It is a finale so unexpected, so unprecedented, there is not a single person who knows how Peter’s journey will end — not even Peter,” Chris announced.
Chris went on to introduce the ladies on the stage from Peter’s season of The Bachelor.
The participating women were Katrina Badowski, Alayah Benavidez, Lexi Buchanan, Alexa Caves, Sarah Coffin, Mykenna Dorn, Victoria Fuller, Maurissa Gunn, Sydney Hightower, Deandra Kanu, Shiann Lewis, Tammy Ly, Savannah Mullins, Kiarra Norman, Victoria Paul, Kylie Ramos, and Kelsey Weier.
Natasha Parker and Kelley Flanagan, however, were noticeably absent from the filming.
Chris asks the women about Madison Prewett’s “ultimatum”
Chris asked Lexi if Madison waited too long to tell Peter about her Fantasy Suite expectations and the fact she’s saving herself for marriage.
Lexi replied, “I think when you go on this show, you know what happens in Fantasy Suites. It’s not a surprise. I just don’t think it was fair to him to give him that ultimatum.”
But Sydney disagreed, saying she and Madison are from the same community and were always looked at to set a certain standard.
“I don’t think of it as an ultimatum. I think of it as Madison saying, ‘This is who I am and, Peter, if you take this route, it’s going to make me feel a certain type of way.’ And she stuck to her guns and I respect her for it. I do,” Sydney explained.
Victoria Paul vs. Alayah Benavidez
Sydney offered her take on Victoria P. and Alayah’s feud by saying Alayah is “scripted.” Sydney prides herself on being a good judge of character and insisted “something was just off with this chick,” meaning Alayah.
Sydney said cameras would go on and Alayah would become a “production” with a booming voice.
Lexi said Alayah treated the process like a beauty pageant competition, noting how Alayah was afraid to get “disqualified,” which is beauty-pageant talk.
Lexi and Sydney also accused Alayah of going home after her first elimination and reading Reddit and coming back to throw other girls under the bus. Lexi said Alayah had lied about other people and it was “malicious.”
Alayah said she had word vomit and has always had a pitchy voice with many octaves. Alayah pointed out her mother has always called it her “princess voice” and so she wasn’t trying to put on an act.
