There is a part of the promo that Alex calls out Chad an “insecure bitch.” After the clip, Nick B stands up and says what a lot of people have been thinking – Alex was manipulative and he was constantly antagonizing Chad. Daniel agrees with Nick and says that the guys were more worried about taking down Chad than they were about dating Jojo Fletcher.
It’s finally time for Chad Johnson to take the stage – security escorts him out, and he takes a seat with Chris Harrison. Chris shares a clip of Chad’s wild ride on The Bachelorette before he was eliminated. Chad explains that it was like living in a frat – and he literally couldn’t walk through the house without hearing one of the guys talking about him. Chad says he was the only honest guy, all of the guys on the show were fake and just trying to become famous.
Chad reveals that he has been dating Robby’s ex Hope and Grant’s ex Jen since he got kicked off The Bachelor. Chad says that he felt bad because Hope and Jen were both dumped by their boyfriends to be on the show. Nick jumps up out of his chair and threatens Chad and says that he is sick of his “egotistical bullshit” and he will fight Chad any day and anywhere. Chad laughs at his threats and says that Nick is just trying to get air time.Talk turns to Derek’s beef with Chad, they were roommates, but Derek asked to be placed in a different room.

Derek and Chad start bickering back and forth for a good five minutes. They accomplish nothing…Chad does however, point out that Derek’s pocket square doesn’t match his jacket.
Chad begins ranting about Jordan Rodgers next. Jordan is in the final two, so he actually isn’t even there to defend himself. According to Chad, Jordan only joined the show to be famous, and that has been his life long dream. Chad also says that the other final two guy, Robby Hayes,’ supposedly threatened his ex-girlfriend Hope and told her not to talk to the media.

Chris Harrison plays the clip back in slow motion, the audience agrees with Chad…Evan definitely pushed him. Wells interrupts, he says that he feels bad for the guys on the show, because the world never got to see how awesome they all were because they were all worried about Chad.
Chris asks Chad if there is anything on the show that he regrets. Chad says he doesn’t regret anything, if anyone was in his shoes, and was harassed by 20 guys in a house every day, they would have reacted the same way. Chris asks Chad what his mother would have thought of the show if she was still alive, Chad says that his mom would have loved it and she would have been cracking up the whole time.
Enough with the Chad drama, fan favorite Luke Pell takes the stage next to discuss his shocking exit that no one saw coming…not even Luke. Luke explains that he wished he had told Jojo that he loved her earlier, it would have made a difference. He confesses that he felt a lot of pain that night, but it’s all worth it now, if Jojo is truly happy with the guy that she chose. He wishes he had been more expressive and direct with Jojo though. Luke is a little nervous about seeing Jojo tonight, he hasn’t seen her since she dumped him on the show.

Chase took a chance and told The Bachelorette that he loved her, and in return Jojo dumped him.

Season 12 Bachelorette Jojo Fletcher finally gets to come out and speak her peace. Jojo explains that when she took on the job, she never expected to fall in love with any of the guys, and it was really hard for her to break up with someone and send them home every week.
