The Bachelor season 19 – Chris Soules and season 17 – Sean Lowe, when some of the women got into calling each other names and insulting each other. Then on to Colton when he jumped the fence and everyone went looking for him while he ran off. We revisit Brad Womack when he was confronted at his women-tell-all. It’s not all negative, we also get to see all the proposals.
Chris is now on the Bachelor Nation bus tour, and they are stopping at some of the most popular date spots. One was when Ali and Robert flew to the top of the building via helicopter and they had to tight rope across a twenty story building, to another one to have dinner.
Next, we see the Watermark Tower where Sean Lowe had one of his crazy dates with Sarah Herron, they did a fee fall 160ft, dropping 40 feet per second.

Jillian Harris really wanted to get married when she was on the show, she picked Ed; but it didn’t work out. She has since met the man of her dreams, she has two children and an amazing job. Being on The Bachelorette was life-changing.
