Taking a stroll down The Bachelorette’s memory lane!

With the newest franchise show The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! airing I thought I would also do a recap on all the dramatic, cringe-worthy, and awkward moments we’ve seen on The Bachelorette.

Get ready to reopen all the doors we closed when we first saw those episodes or perhaps experience them for the first time if you’re new to The Bachelor franchise! Check them out below–and don’t forget to tell us your favorite ones in the comments!

Remember Ali Fedotowsky?


Season 6: Ali Fedotowsky

Ali had a busy and dramatic season on The Bachelorette after one of her contestants, Kasey Kahl said he would “guard and protect her heart” by revealing a six-inch tattoo for her on his right wrist. We remember him from awkwardly singing (and off-key!) to Ali after their sunset helicopter ride. Laugh out loud.

The ONLY thing that could have made the tattoo worse was if her name was on it. Luckily for him, he didn’t put her name on it because as we all know at the end of the season, she didn’t choose him.

I think we can all agree that those were sweet gestures, but perhaps it was too much too soon for Ali?

Later on in the season, Ali confronted contestant Justin Rego about his girlfriend back home in Canada. He refused to talk to Ali, but not before he cussed Chris Harrison out.

In the most awkward exit, he limped around the hotel as he attempted to find a way to avoid the cameras. He climbed through the window and bushes after he tried to leave through the hotel’s restaurant, but *SPOILER*

The door was locked! AWKWARD.
