No matter the season, you can always count on the “Women Tell All” episode to deliver the drama and Colton Underwood’s season doesn’t disappoint.

Season 22, Episode 8 “Week 8” (Arie Luyendyk Jr.)

Season 20, Episode 1 “Week 1” (Ben Higgins)

If you’ve been part of Bachelor Nation for some time now, you know that anything can happen and to expect the unexpected. It didn’t take long for Ben (and the viewers) to be thrown for a loop when Becca Tilly and Amber James from season 19 returned to the mansion for round two.

Season 16, Episode 5 “Week 5” (Ben Flajnik)

Skinny dipping in Puerto Rico, anyone? Ben Flajnik’s season had a Bachelor first when contestant and resident “villain” Courtney Robertson broke the rules by surprising Ben and luring him into a late-night ocean skinny dip. Let’s just say the other contestants were not happy when they found out about Courtney’s out-of-bounds and scantily-clad night with their bachelor.
