All of Emily Maynard's suitors on The Bachelorette this season, except for finalists Jef and Arie, reunited for one last chat on the show's Men Tell All special Monday, and we've got all the details for you right here on

As we previously reported, the 26-year-old is the first single mom in the show's eight-season history, as she has a 6-year-old daughter named Ricki. (Emily's former fiancée, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a 2004 plane crash while she was pregnant.)

Now to the men...

Kalon, who infamously told Emily he felt her daughter was "baggage" in a relationship, said he felt justified in giving love with Emily a shot.

"I didn't know for a fact that I absolutely did not want a stepchild," Kalon said. "I was still very interested in meeting Emily. I'm an optimist, I really believe that anything can happen."

He later told her, "I’m obviously sorry for the way things went down between us, but I am trying to use it as a growing experience in my future relationships, and I really wish the best for you."

Emily -- admitting she's surprised she "let someone like that through the cracks" in the first place -- told Kalon, "And you, my dear, should go into politics because that is the biggest load of s**t I’ve ever heard!"

Ryan said for him, the show "wasn't all about Emily.

"It was about me finding my wife," he said, to which host Chris Harrison said he will not be starring in the next edition of The Bachelor.

One gent for whom it was all about Emily was Chris, who said he "loved her 110 percent."

"And that's why you can see myself being overly emotional sometimes," said Chris, who Emily gave the boot to after the hometown dates. "We're here today, we could be gone tomorrow. I've lost a couple good friends and that's why when I say the things I say, I mean it.

"I'm not holding anything back because I feel like there might not be the opportunity to say it tomorrow."

Another fella picking his heart up off the floor was Sean, who admitted he fell in love with Emily "for a number of reasons.

"She is an amazing person and that's not gonna fade overnight, I wish it would, but it hasn't," he said. "Although, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm certainly still emotional and when I think about her and think about all the good times we had, I miss her, no doubt about it."

Emily told Sean in response, "I want you to know that I watched the episode and literally sat in my room and did the ugly cry, ugly, ugly, ugly cry … everything that I felt for you was so true and so genuine and real for me."

We'll see if Emily picks Arie or Jef when The Bachelorette finale airs Sunday night at 8/7c on ABC.
