Ali Fedotowsky reunited with the group of men who vied for her affection this season on The Bachelorette, for the show’s Men Tell All special, and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive juicy tidbits of what happened, who didn’t show up, and who was put in the hot seat.
Frank Neuschaefer, the suitor who broke Ali’s heart on Monday night’s episode, was a no-show but that didn’t stop Kirk DeWindt from tearing him apart.
Kirk was eliminated when Ali had to cut down the final four men to three. “Kirk was in really rough shape after he was sent home, he completely fell for her,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “He did very well. He criticized Frank for staying [on the show] and going to Tahiti when he should have left. Kirk felt he should have had that extra time with Ali and it could have made a difference.”
Ali surprisingly put Kirk in his place about how Frank’s presence affected Kirk’s chances. “Ali made it clear that this did not affect her decision. She explained that they were just friends and that their relationship had gone as far as it could.” Still, Kirk got some loving attention: “A member of the special’s live audience stood up and told Kirk that if thing don’t work out for him she would be there for him.”
Kasey Kahl, whose over-the-top reputation was solidified when he got a tattoo on the show, was also in the hot seat next to host Chris Harrison. “Kasey talked about his tattoo and told everyone he got it for himself. It had nothing to do with Ali. [He said] He would not get a tattoo for a girl,” the source said. Kasey didn’t disappoint, spicing up the end of the five-hour taping of the reunion episode.
“The funniest part of the evening was actually the very end when Chris Harrison said ‘goodnight’ and Kasey said ‘Wait Chris, just one more thing.’ He went up and sang to Ali one more time in front of everyone. It was so funny and at the same time so embarrassing. I just wanted to climb under my chair it was so uncomfortable.” Used to Kasey’s awkward moments by now, Ali, “reacted really well” and laughed it off.
However the night was missing one of the season’s biggest villians and personalities: Justin “Rated R” Rego who left the show after the two women he was dating simultaneously called Ali to warn her about him. “Everyone wanted to confront Justin Rego but he didn’t show up. The guys had plans to bash him but never had the opportunity which might have been better because people just let their feelings flow.”

Despite Rego’s absence, the source said there was plenty of favorite faces to discuss. “The Weatherman was there and got a lot of repellent comments. He got ragged on again for going behind Craig’s back to tell her he was dangerous and then not admitting he had done it. He got flak from the guys for not fessing up.”
Promises the source, “It will be a very exciting show.”
The special will air July 26 at 8 PM on ABC.
