So what did we learn from last night's "The Bachelors Tell All" episode?
1. Chicago's Ed Swiderski, who's in the final two, is a good time. After footage of him, um, interpretive dancing in a hotel hallway, Jillian Harris declared, "Ed is the happiest, funniest drunk that I've ever met in my life." Later she gushed, "I love that Ed's a little bit of a nerd."
2. In the previews for next week's "emotional" conclusion, Reid was shown fondling a gold band. Host Chris Harrison teased, "Reid wasn't able to make it tonight due to a prior engagement."
3. Last season's sensitive-but-indecisive bachelor Jason Mesnick has inspired a new expression. "Pulling a Mesnick" is defined as "a grown man who leans over a hotel railing and cries."
There was much bashing of record-pushing, girlfriend-having Wes, who also must have had a prior engagement. But as for clues as to how next week's finale turns out? Not so much.
This is the point at which the Bachelorette should say something like, "I'm in love with a wonderful guy." Does she choose too-perfect Kiptyn? Workaholic Ed? Or late bloomer Reid?
All Jillian would give up was, "It all turned out good in the end."
