This season's contestants at The Bachelor: Women Tell All

1. Tiara the Chicken Enthusiast Brought a Live Chicken on the Show

Because of course she did.

2. Leah Basically Had No Excuse About that Time She Threw Lauren B. Under the Bus – and She Got Booed by the Audience

Remember when Leah came completely out of left field and trash-talked Lauren B. to Ben?



Well, if you were hoping for a juicy explanation about that, sorry to disappoint. According to Leah, she did it because she was mad that Lauren had apparently made an offhand comment that girls who got upset about Ben not picking them for dates were "losers."

As for her decision to lie to the other girls faces when they asked her about it? She "didn't intentionally lie," whatever that means.

(Anyways, for the record, Leah and Lauren B. "are good now," – but what we really want to know is the explanation behind that black eye Leah had in the season promo that was never addressed again.)

3. Amber, Jami and Jubilee Got Into a Tense Discussion About Race

So basically what happened was Jami and Amber called out Jubilee for allegedly making comments along the lines of her being "the only full black girl" on the show, which offended the other two girls, who are mixed.

Jubilee initially fiercely denied ever saying anything of the sort, but after being pressed by Jami, she eventually apologized and told the two girls her intentions were never to offend them – and as we've seen, Jubilee is no stranger to controversy.

Then it was Jubilee's turn in the hot seat with host Chris Harrison, and she was teary-eyed before he'd even started asking her questions. Looking back on the journey, an emotional Jubilee said she got caught up in the aspects of the show that were "not real" to her, such as the fact that you're dating a man at the same time as 28 other women.

As for how she's doing now, things are looking up: Jubilee, who is still in the military (in the reserve), just made sergeant!

4. Some Random Guy Got a Tattoo of Lace on His Chest

Remember Lace? Of course you do. Anyway, some random guy in the audience was such a huge fan of her that he actually got a real (and rather large) tattoo of her face on the side of his torso, because romance, right?!

5. Get Excited, People: We Officially Have Our First Bachelor in Paradise Contestant

And yes, it's Lace. We called it.

6. Olivia Apologized to Everyone and It Actually Seemed Genuine

Olivia was without a doubt the most controversial contestant this season. (And with good reason: She did compare Amanda to an episode of Teen Mom just because she has two daughters.)

At the Women Tell All, Olivia came back with a new attitude (and the classic breakover bob). She was teary, apologetic and admitted that the setting of the show was completely wrong for her personality.

After a few snippy back-and-forth comments with the twins, Olivia finally full-on apologized to all of the women, especially Amanda, for saying anything that was offensive to them.

She also said she was "severely bullied as a child" and that watching the other women pick apart her physical appearance (#neverforget The Great Cankle Debate of 2016) brought a lot of those feelings back. (The other women, meanwhile, didn't seem to buy that explanation, claiming if that was the case then she should have been more self-aware of how her actions might upset others. And also, they want everyone to know they like to "read books and talk smart" too.)

At the end of the day, Olivia said, the last few months have been really hard, especially with all the social media backlash she's received – and she admitted she "didn't do it right, but I learned."

7. Caila Kind of Said She Still Loves Ben

Caila made it to the final three before she got dumped on last week's episode – and if the Women Tell All was any indication, she's still hurting.

"It's hard to watch it back," she said after a clip of their relationship from start to finish aired. "I really did love him and I still do in a way and I just didn't picture it ending that way."

8. Ben Is Ready to Get Married "Tomorrow"

Ben may have told both his final two women he loves them, but it looks like things definitely worked out with one of them.

As for which one, we won't know until the finale next Monday, but Ben – who revealed last week he is engaged – told Harrison he is "more in love" than he's ever been: "I would marry that woman tomorrow if I could," he vowed.

9. And In Case You Weren't Convinced Ben Is a Gentleman, All the Women He Dumped Still Rave About Him

Harrison isn't kidding when he calls Ben "the most loved Bachelor" of all time – in fact, all the girls at the Women Tell All couldn't stop raving about him, even Amanda, whom he sent home in a heartbreaking elimination after meeting her two kids.

From Olivia to Lauren H., Ben was showered with compliments from his exes – Becca went so far as to say it was "comforting" to know that there are good guys like him out there. (Plus, he was successfully able to tell twins Emily and Haley apart – thank God, because a) that would have been so awkward if he messed up and b) we honestly didn't know which was one which until he did that.)

10. And Last But Not Least, Becca Called Ben "Chris" – as in Chris Soules – in the Bloopers

Yes, as in, her other Bachelor ex-boyfriend from last season of the show. Legendary.

Stay tuned, because from the sneak peek at the finale, things are about to get – dare we say it? – more dramatic than ever before when The Bachelor wraps up Monday (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
