"The Bachelorette: Men Tell All": Emily's rejected suitors speak out

THE BACHELORETTE - Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America's and Brad Womack's heart on the 15th season of "The Bachelor," finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad's proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves. It's hard to meet men as a single mom, but Emily will have her pick of 25 bachelors when she gets a second opportunity to find love starring in the eighth edition of "The Bachelorette" when it premieres this spring on the ABC Television Network.

(CBS News) Emily Maynard will hand out the final rose Sunday on the season finale of "The Bachelorette," but, before then, we get to hear from the guys she sent home.

On Monday night, those rejected suitors returned for some additional time in front of the camera on the "Men Tell All" special.

"The Bachelorette: Men Tell All" special: Kalon apologizes to Emily

The episode began with a recap of the season so far, along with some previously-unseen footage (One clip showed Emily spilling wine on her dress and cursing over it). Then, we got a preview of the new season of "Bachelor Pad."

After that, it was time for the men to come out and start talking.

Sean told host Chris Harrison that while he's still recovering after being dumped on TV, he's doing all right.

"I fell in love with this girl," he said. "That's not going to fade overnight... Although, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel."

Maynard, wearing a red dress, came out on stage and told him she had an "ugly cry" while watching that episode.

"I want you to know that I watched the episode and literally sat in my room and did, like, the ugly cry -- ugly, ugly, ugly, cry. And everything that I felt for you was so true and so genuine." She recalled thinking, "What's wrong with me that I'm sending this guy home?"

Kalon then attempted to apologize for calling Maynard's 7-year-old daughter Ricki "baggage" during his time on the show.

"Emily, obviously I would like to apologize for the way things transpired," he said. "I'm trying to use it as a growing experience in my future relationships and I really wish the best for you."

But Maynard wasn't buying it. She replied, "You, my dear, should be a politician. Because that's the biggest load of s--t I've ever heard."

After a blooper real, we see a preview of Sunday's finale. Will Emily chose Arie or Jef? We'll have to wait until the weekend to find out.

Tell us: Which guy should Emily choose?
