Michelle's decision means that either Frank Eudy or Bridgette Dunning -- the two houseguests that had been nominated for eviction by Jason Huling, this week's Head of Household -- will be voted out of the Big Brother house by the remaining houseguests during Thursday night's live eviction show.
Big Brother 18's Wednesday night episode picked up where Sunday night's episode had left off -- on Day 38 with Frank and Bridgette realizing James had decided to break the deal he had made with Bridgette during the HoH competition and nominate the pair for eviction.
James rationalized his decision by saying he was doing what the entire house wanted.
"Your word is all you have in this house, so you definitely don't try and break it unless you absolutely have to," he explained afterwards. "I don't feel bad about the situation, you can bounce checks up in here.... I have the whole house behind me."
While Frank said he had envisioned the possibility James might break his deal with Bridgette, she took the news harder.
"James had given me his word that neither Frank or I would be going on the block," she said. "I've just been blatantly lied to."
Later, the houseguests competed in the Power of Veto competition to determine who would earn the option to decide whether to veto one of James' nominations and take Frank or Bridgette off the chopping block.
In addition to James, Frank, and Bridgette, Michelle, Da.Vonne Rogers and Nicole Franzel were randomly drawn to compete in the PoV competition.
The latest incarnation of Big Brother's classic "Otev" competition, the PoV competition required the six participating houseguests to scramble around the competition's lily pad set and find a record album prop that contained the correct answer to each round's question.
The question's required the houseguests to remember the name of one of the Big Brother season's prior competitions, and the last houseguest to return with the proper answer would be eliminated in each round.
James decided to deliberately throw the challenge and was the first houseguest eliminated. He was then followed by Da'Vonne and Nicole, leaving only Michelle standing between Frank or Bridgette winning the competition and being able to safe themselves from eviction.
However, Michelle was able to eliminate first Frank and then Bridgette in the competition's final two rounds, winning the week's PoV power.
Frank then immediately attempted to convince Michelle to ally with him and use the PoV to nominate Da'Vonne for eviction instead.
But James, Paul Abrahamian and the rest of the house's houseguests noticed his attempts to sway Michelle and called a "house meeting" in which they openly told Frank there was no support for his plan to oust Da'Vonne and the house wanted him out, causing him to appear to accept his fate.
"I mean I don't think it's cool to do it how it's going down -- bro, I was just going to pull you aside and be like, 'Hey man, the numbers aren't in your favor. Like, stop making yourself look like an idiot,'" Paulie Calafiore told Frank as the rest of the house looked on. "It is what it is... sorry bro, it's going to come to no avail... I help seeing you try and it ain't going to work... one of you guys is going home. You had to try for the game of Big Brother, and that's it."
"Yeah, you know I do," Frank replied. "That's fine, that just means a lot of people just can't shoot straight with me. Thank you Paulie for having a backbone. Thank you Da' for having a backbone."
Michelle then formally announced her decision at the Power of Veto meeting.
"I just want to say I respect James for his big move this week putting two huge targets on the block. And I really do respect you Frank, the fact that you campaigned so hard. I'm not going to deny that I didn't think about using it, but I've decided not to use the Power of Veto."
"I think my face said it all," Pell recalled to The Hollywood Reporter of the moment he was eliminated in a Los Angeles airport hangar. "I haven't felt a relationship go that fast and be that strong ever. For it to end that way was just really hard to take."
Fletcher sent Pell home right after the men's round of hometown dates. Pell expressed his love for the Bachelorette after she met his family and about 50 of his closest friends in Burnet, TX, but it was apparently too late.
"There was a state of shock that I was in for a couple of days," admitted the 31-year-old cowboy and military veteran.
"I was trying to process what happened and I was having anxiety attacks about it. Just trying to cope with the high and the escalation of the relationship that I had just been in, and then the roller coaster of coming down the other side of that happening just as quickly."
The process was very real for Pell, as he absolutely fell head over heels for Fletcher and could envision a future with her. So when his dreams came crashing down, Pell described the hurt as, "Your heart feels like it's out of rhythm."
He continued, "You're almost dizzy when you stand up. There were these anxiety symptoms that I was having to deal with that I couldn't control, so that's when I knew this cut me deep. Really cut me deep."
Pell, however, is in talks to become the next The Bachelor star, so maybe he will find a love like this again.
While it may have seemed like Johnson went into Tuesday night's The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All with a motive to destroy the reputations of JoJo Fletcher's Final 2 suitors, the season's villain insists that's not the case.
"Everything I do is kind of spur of the moment," Johnson told ABC News.
Johnson warned the world that Hayes allegedly broke up with his ex-girlfriend, Hope Higginbotham, days before The Bachelorette began filming -- and even worse, that Rodgers cheated on his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Farrar, and then lied on the show about why that relationship failed.
In addition, Johnson said on Men Tell All that Rodgers was insincere on The Bachelorette, even when it came to his relationships with the guys in the house.
"I mean the guy is just full of sh-t," Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter. "I know within two seconds what somebody wants to do with things. And that dude just showed up trying to put on a show."
When asked whether Fletcher would be making a mistake if she ends up with Rodgers, Johnson snidely told The Reporter, "Depends on what a mistake is. Are they looking to get endorsements and play it out for eight to nine months, or are they looking to have an actual relationship?"
It was clear Johnson's accusations pissed Fletcher off on Men Tell All, but the luxury real estate agent from Tulsa, OK, suggests that was an act on her part too.
"JoJo looked like she was vibin' didn't she? Was that just me? She was like, 'Ooh you [jerk],' but at the same time, 'I like it,'" Johnson told ABC News.
In light of Johnson's claims most of the guys appeared on The Bachelorette this season for the wrong reasons -- like to allegedly further their careers in the entertainment industry -- the protein-loving, meat-eating suitor pointed out, "I'm the villain for the right reasons."
Johnson continued, "I'm the villain because I'm the guy that showed up and was trying to do things for real. I'm not the guy who showed up and said, 'I'm in love with you, you're the most beautiful girl ever.' If you fall in love with a girl right off the bat because of her looks, you'll do it again... It's not about that. It's about aligning with somebody based on their personality."
Johnson added that his experience on the show didn't change his views on himself, others or dating in general.
"I can't be like [Chase McNary] or all these other guys that are like, 'I learned so much about myself,'" Johnson explained. "I know who I am, I know what I want and I know how to get it."
Frank, a 32-year-old medical sales representative, first appeared on Season 14 of Big Brother and quickly emerged as a challenge beast whom everyone viewed as dangerous. He was therefore booted from the house in seventh place, when he was finally vulnerable.
Frank was given a second chance to play Big Brother for Season 18 with fellow returnees Da.Vonne Rogers, James Huling and Nicole Franzel. He started out playing a better, more under-the-radar game this time around, but after leaking too much information, offending Da'Vonne and acting a little too cocky, he became Public Enemy No. 1.
Frank made a pattern of winning the now-retired BB Roadkill competitions, but now that the game has done away with that twist and Frank is on the chopping block next to his closest ally Bridgette Dunning, does he stand a chance? We'll find out soon!
Below is a list of 10 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Frank Eudy:
- Frank won the title of "America's Favorite Houseguest" back on Big Brother's 2012 edition.
- Frank was nominated every week that he wasn't HoH on Big Brother's fourteenth season.
- Despite only finishing Season 14 in seventh place, he's known for being the first male to ever win six BB competitions (3 HoH's & 3 PoV's).
- His favorite Big Brother player of all-time is Mike "Boogie" Malin from Seasons 2 and 14 because he genuinely loves the show and always played a "good and entertaining game."
- When he's not on reality TV, you could catch Frank going to dinner, watching movies, binge-watching TV, exercising, and being active in general.
- How would the houseguest describe himself in three words? Personable, funny and loud.
- Frank is the son of professional wrestler Sid Eudy, better known as Sid Vicious.
- When Frank first competed on Big Brother, he was unemployed and lived in Naples, FL. He currently resides in Charlotte, NC.
- He is super close with the women in his life, including his grandmother, mom and aunt. He even once made an old picture of his mom cheerleading his #WCW Instagram picture.
- Frank has an adorable little dog and once took on grooming responsibilities, which was a complete disaster. Where was Glenn Garcia when you needed him, Frank?!
According to multiple sources, Fletcher definitely got engaged at the end of her journey, but it's unclear whether she chose the man whom her family preferred, Us Weekly reported.
Before Fletcher joyfully accepted a proposal from either Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes on a beach in Phuket, Thailand, she devastated the runner-up. The rejected bachelor could barely make eye contact as she gave him the breakup speech, which included a confession that she loved him.
"JoJo was sobbing," a show insider told Us. "She told him, 'I wanted it to be you.'"
When Fletcher's family -- her parents Joseph and Soraya, sister Rachel and brothers Matt and Ben -- flew from Texas to meet Rodgers and Hayes in Thailand, they weren't even torn, which probably weighed heavily on the Bachelorette's final decision.
The reason behind the family's reaction? The first guy to meet them didn't even ask Joseph and Soraya for their blessing to potentially pop the question to Fletcher.
"It was important to JoJo that the guys get her parents' permission before proposing," a show source said. "JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn't."
It reportedly didn't help that Fletcher's family thought the man was a little too smooth to be genuine. He allegedly played all the right cards, including bringing flowers for Soraya and gag gifts for everyone else.
"After he left," said the insider, "Soraya said she thought he was a player."
However, the second suitor to meet Fletcher's family was reportedly welcomed with open arms.
Unlike the first guy, this bachelor revealed his desire to propose to Fletcher, ultimately earning their approval and respect.
"Everyone thought he was husband material," the insider told Us. "Later they told JoJo that they liked the other man too, but they thought the second would be more loyal and a better fit."
Fletcher "cried and didn't know how she was going to make a decision," added the insider.
Fletcher must choose between Rodgers and Hayes during next week's Season 12 finale of The Bachelorette.
Paulie, the brother of Season 16 runner-up Cody Calafiore, has proven himself to be a physical, social and strategic threat. The 27-year-old Howell, NJ, native is also a piece of eye candy for all of the ladies in the house.
Paulie has won two Head of Household competitions as well as one Power of Veto so far this season. He has won all but one of the HoH competitions he's been able to participate in.
Paulie's gameplay has landed him in a pretty solid "8 Pack" alliance, and none of the houseguests are going after him or currently view him as dangerous. On the contrary, Big Brother's players feel the need to get on his good side and be loyal to Paulie in order to keep themselves safe.
Below is a list of 10 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Paulie Calafiore:
- Paulie is the co-owner of Sweat Elite Fitness, a co-creator of PC Fitness and the creator of Calafiore 360 Fitness.
- The houseguest works as a deejay and model on the side.
- He graduated from Rutgers University, where he played on the soccer team.
- Paulie studied Exercise Science and Sport Studies at Rutgers.
- Paulie created his own training regimen called Calafiore 360 Fitness.
- Paulie has a large three-line script tattoo on the right side of his body that pays tribute to his Italian heritage and family. One line in Italian reads, "Fratelli di Calafiore," which means "the Calafiore brothers."
- Three words he'd pick to describe himself are driven, passionate and quick-witted.
- The houseguest's favorite activities include martial arts, exercise and instruments, especially the guitar.
- Paulie's life motto? "A comfort zone is a wonderful place, but nothing ever grows there."
- He found it absolutely necessary to pack a toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash when moving into the Big Brother house in order to guarantee fresh breath.
Tuesday night's Men Tell All special for JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette will surely go down in history, pretty much all thanks to Chad Johnson, whom host Chris Harrison admitted needed no introduction.
Not only did Chad call out fellow eliminated suitors for their alleged mistakes, he also bashed JoJo's remaining bachelors Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes -- some of which was said directly to JoJo's face.
"Oh, I could go off right now!" JoJo vented in anger and frustration.
The night also included Luke Pell and Chase McNary talking about their broken hearts and hopefully finding love again in the future. All of that, plus bloopers and extended previews for The Bachelorette's twelfth-season finale as well as Bachelor in Paradise's Season 3 premiere on August 2.
Below is a list of highlights from the memorable Men Tell All broadcast:
- Chad had his own trailer with his name on the door set up outside of the studio where Men Tell All taped as if he was a famous celebrity. He also had a giant tray of cold cuts to choose from.
- Alex Woytkiw, who noticeably received quiet applause from the live audience, was called a "manipulative instigator" with a "Napoleon complex" by Nick Benvenutti for the way he attacked Derek Peth after Chad went home. Nick B. was the guy who dressed up like Santa Claus if anyone forgot.
- In Chad's defense, his loyal sidekick Daniel Maguire insisted that all the guys did this season was complain about Chad or gush about how they were in love with JoJo "after spending five minutes with her."
- Chad argued he lost his cool a couple of times because the other guys whispered 24/7 behind his back, and he thought that if he just punched one person, everyone else would be intimidated enough to shut up.
- Chad told Chris Harrison he was the only honest suitor in JoJo's cast of bachelors, calling out Chase for having a Vine presence, Alex for modeling, James Taylor for singing, Wells Adams for being a radio personality, and more. Chad said the guys went on the show to further their careers in the entertainment industry.
- Chad revealed he spent time with and sort of dated Robby and Grant Kemp's ex-girlfriends after the show. Although Grant argued he broke up with his girlfriend before applying to be on The Bachelorette, Chad said both girls insisted the two guys had dumped them just to go on the show.
- Chad still talks to Robby's ex Hope Higginbotham as well as Grant's ex-girlfriend. While he wouldn't reveal to Chris Harrison if he was "intimate" with either girl, Chad said they are amazing, beautiful women who didn't deserve to get screwed over.
- St. Nick stood up, took his jacket off and tried to fight Chad. Nick was trying to make a point that Chad made "empty threats," but Chad just accused him of trying to get some time on the air since he got eliminated so soon. Chad also didn't want to brawl in dress shoes, saying, "We'll deal with this later."
- Chad asked Derek to be himself for just one second and stop putting on an act. He said Derek needs to grow up if words hurt him so badly, later adding that Derek's pocket square didn't match his shirt.
- Chad joked that he never finished his sentence when he said he'd hunt Jordan down at his house after the show. Chad suggested that maybe he just wanted to bring Jordan some candy.
- Chad said Jordan wasn't sincere at all because he only pretended to talk to him when cameras were on so he'd look like a nice guy. Chad said when cameras were off, Jordan wouldn't even look at him. Chad said Jordan also just wanted to get a good job in media, which he recently accomplished.
- Chad told everyone that Robby is not upset about him dating Hope. He said Robby threatened the girl to not say anything to anyone or conduct any interviews during his The Bachelorette stint. Chad said Robby warned her to keep quiet or else, "I'll come get you," which Grant absolutely did not believe.
- Back on this season's comedy Group Date when Chad infamously ripped Evan Bass' shirt and seemed violent, Chris Harrison proved with tape playback that Evan actually pushed Chad first. Evan said he was trying to shake Chad's hand, but the audience booed and clearly didn't believe him.
- Wells, who thought he was the mediator of the group since he got along with everybody, said the guys did gang up on Chad like flies but Chad also said "some really f-cked up things," which made the men's behavior "justified" at the end of the day. Wells wished Chad luck redeeming himself on Bachelor in Paradise.
- Chad doesn't regret "99.9 percent" of things he did or said on the show because he felt things were warranted in the heat of the moment when he was backed into corners. Chad also said his mother, who recently passed away, would've found his behavior on the show "hilarious," minus a comment or two here or there.
- Luke apparently still loves JoJo and felt so much pain after his elimination that he suffered panic attacks at home for a couple of weeks. It took him "reflection" and "time" to move on from the breakup. However, he knows his love was real because he cares more about her happiness in the end.
- Luke realized he held back verbally in his relationship with JoJo and should've been more expressive and direct. He said that next time he falls in love with a woman, he'll express his love immediately upon feeling it.
- Luke explained he held off on telling JoJo he loved her only because he wanted to make sure she was comfortable around his family. Also, because he's a hopeless romantic, he kept waiting for that once-in-a-lifetime moment to say, "I love you," but he never seized the moment.
- Luke absolutely didn't expect to go home when he did. He thought he'd have more time with JoJo because everything leading up to the point of his ouster were "fireworks" between them.
- Thanks to his romance with JoJo, Luke learned how to love again and he's happy, ready and optimistic about what the future might hold. Chris Harrison asked Luke repeatedly if he's ready to find love again, which seemed like the host is positioning the war veteran to become the next The Bachelor star.
- Chase said it didn't make sense for JoJo to offer him the Fantasy Suite invitation if she didn't feel love for him already. He said it felt like she invited him into the suite to hear that he loved her before just sending him packing. The situation has been hard for Chase to process.
- Although he initially insisted telling JoJo that he loved her was a mistake, Chase promised he doesn't regret having said it now because she taught him how to be open about his feelings again and express himself. Chase, like Luke, still has a lot of love for JoJo.
- When JoJo was welcomed onstage, she admitted she still feels raw emotion seeing the guys again and watching the episodes back on TV.
- JoJo couldn't tell Luke whether saying, "I love you," earlier would've made a difference. However, she said she had to put emotion aside in the moment of his elimination and just go with her gut.
- JoJo confessed to Chase she may not have handled the Fantasy Suite situation well and she felt guilty about that. JoJo noted she found clarity at the wrong time in their relationship, but Chase comforted her and said everything was fine and she shouldn't feel guilty. Chase acknowledged there's no perfect time to break somebody's heart.
- Chad told JoJo that Robby broke up with his ex-girlfriend days before filming The Bachelorette began and Jordan is "a liar and cheater whose older brother won't even talk to him." JoJo was about to "go off," telling the audience that Chad thrived off attention and therefore no one should give it to him.
- JoJo snapped that Chad wasn't worth her breath, which his fellow suitors applauded and cheered for. JoJo didn't feel the need to defend her Final 2 suitors at all, and JoJo thanked all the guys for treating her with respect -- except for Chad.
- JoJo concluded her segment by telling Chris Harrison, "I'm really happy with how things ended and where I'm at right now."
The Coupled broadcast began with Alexandra "Alex" Clark saying how her new partner Jeffrey Blockson has a lot of qualities she liked. She thought he was handsome, intelligent and treated women with respect. It didn't hurt Jeffrey was very romantic. The pair started liking each other more and more every day.
Meanwhile, 29-year-old Alicia Blanco felt great about her relationship with 24-year-old Tyler Gattuso except for the fact he's five years younger and maybe not as mature. However, she loved his sense of humor and they got along well. Tyler could also see them furthering their connection in the real world after the show.
Each couple got to embark on an individual date in this episode, whether it be boating, fishing, drinking cocktails and having lunch, paddleboarding and ATVing. It was a chance for the couples to spend some time alone and away from a group setting.
Ben Rosenfield thought Lisa Rotondi was amazing and sexy, however, he was concerned about connecting with her on an intellectual and emotional level. Meanwhile, Alex Lagemann commented how it's "mind-blowing" how much his relationship with Lindsey Tuer had grown.
Brian "BT" Urruela called Ashley Reitz his "rock" and said nothing ever felt forced between them. She's also apparently waiting until marriage to have sex, which he found incredibly special. BT admitted he'd probably put a ring on it sooner because of that, but he's looking forward to sharing that moment with her.
Although Brandon Smith was convinced his "player days" were over and Terecia "TT" Baker could be the one for him, the pair bickered nonstop on their individual date. They argued about how Brandon would like to be on his phone when watching a television show with TT of her choice, which TT found unacceptable. She said a relationship is all about compromise, but Brandon didn't seem game for that.
Brandon and TT, who thought her man accused her of being too sensitive, continued to butt heads that night, and they both began questioning whether they were right for each other.
BT and Ashley also had a tense conversation but about an entirely different topic. BT opened up about having watched a friend of his die in the military. BT explained he has moments of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but instead of feeling more connected to him, Ashley became wary she could help him.
Back at the Couples' Villas, Jeffrey planned a special outdoor-beach "glamping" date for Alexandra, which is a glamorous form of camping. She appreciated the gesture, but when it started to rain, she wanted to ditch the romantic setting and head indoors to sleep. Jeffrey was disappointed in how high maintenance Alexandra was being, and he was clearly turned off in that moment.
Later on, Alexandra could sense Jeffrey was upset, so they talked things out. Jeffrey explained he just wanted alone time with her so they could get to know each other better, and Alexandra understood, admitting it felt nice to feel wanted and appreciated. The couple ended their discussion with a kiss.
The episode concluded with TT and Brandon completely falling apart. While TT previously thought she was falling in love with Brandon, she didn't like how he was treating her. TT didn't want to cast her feelings aside just to make Brandon happy, but without her effort, Brandon shut down and felt disconnected.
Coupled will air its finale next Tuesday night at 9PM ET/PT on Fox.
Jordan, who is currently one of Fletcher's Final 2 suitors on The Bachelorette, opened up to her earlier in the season about his estrangement from his older brother Aaron, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.
Jordan kind of threw Aaron under the bus by saying the NFL quarterback is estranged from the entire Rodgers family because of his priorities and the way he has "chosen to do life." And when Fletcher met Jordan's family in Chico, CA, Aaron was noticeably missing, as expected, from the dinner table.
Throughout it all, Aaron has surprisingly remained silent on the issue -- until now.
"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters," Aaron said during a Tuesday interview with ABC's WISN 12 News in Milwaukee. "So I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."
Aaron, who has been estranged from his family for years, also confirmed he's had no interest in tuning into Season 12 of The Bachelorette, which wraps next week.
"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," the Super Bowl MVP said after yesterday's training camp.
Theories about the brothers' estrangement continue to circulate -- including questions of whether Aaron's longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn and her good friend Brittany Farrar, who is Jordan's ex-girlfriend, had anything to do with the falling out.
Speculation exists a cheating scandal was a factor in the current state of Jordan and Aaron's relationship. Farrar had blasted Jordan on social media when The Bachelorette premiered, calling him a liar and fame-seeker. She said their relationship ended because he had cheated on her and not because he was focused on pursuing a football career as he had claimed.
Munn also alluded to the strained relationship between Jordan and Aaron in May while she was promoting her film X-Men: Apocalypse.
"Aaron doesn't really... I don't think he's really talked with his brother," Munn told Entertainment Tonight when asked about Jordan's The Bachelorette participation. "So, I actually don't know. It's complicated -- I'll say that."
The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison met both Jordan and Aaron and thought both guys were really personable and down-to-earth. The "complicated" situation therefore even leaves him baffled.
Jordan is up against Robby Hayes for Fletcher's heart. Jordan has been a frontrunner from the very start of the competition, winning her First Impression Rose and potentially her last rose on next week's season finale.

During separate interviews backstage at the recent taping of The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All, which airs Tuesday night at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, Entertainment Tonight asked Pell and McNary whether they are in talks to be the next Bachelor -- and whether they'd be up for the job.
"I'm at a place now where it feels good to be in love, and I definitely look forward to that in the future," Pell said, clearly dodging the question.
Once the ET reporter pushed for answers, the 31-year-old Texas cowboy and war veteran got real.
"It's a possibility," Pell revealed, "and so, I definitely would not pass on it."
While Pell said he'd definitely take advantage of the opportunity, McNary's response was cagier.
"I guess, you know, that's..." McNary began, stumbling over his words.
Once the reporter interjected and jokingly demanded McNary not lie to her, the 27-year-old Colorado medical sales representative elaborated with a laugh, "The discussions are there."
In terms of whether McNary would like to become the next Bachelor, he explained, "It's just -- I don't know. There's a lot of weight there. It puts you under the microscope of America, and that's scary."
McNary and Pell were both eliminated from The Bachelorette on Monday night's episode, and it's safe to say JoJo Fletcher broke their hearts.
Life & Style just reported yesterday that James Taylor is also in the running to follow in Ben Higgins' footsteps as the Bachelor.
"His personality really appeals to viewers," a source told the magazine of the 29-year-old country singer from Katy, TX. "Producers haven't made any decisions yet, but they think he could be a strong and interesting choice. They're definitely considering him."
Before the couple's overnight Fantasy Suite date, Fletcher and Hayes explored a local marketplace in Thailand.
"Seeing Robby pull up on that little tuk tuk made my day! Talk about an entrance, am I right?! This market was one of the coolest places I've ever been to. You didn't see much of it, but Robby and I got pretty adventurous!" Fletcher wrote in her People blog.
"We tried all sorts of insects, and fish and let me tell you, it wasn't that bad! When you travel to places like this, it's always best to just experience everything!"
Fletcher said she still remembers that day with the former competitive swimmer "so well."
"It was hot as heck and when the storm came it was like the heavens opened up for us," she said.
"It also knocked out the entire town's power! Robby and I had been shopping in the market shops when the power went out, and that's actually why we went and got the foot massage! But after all that walking I think we definitely made the right choice on that one," Fletcher explained, adding a winking face.
The couple was fresh off an "amazing" date with Hayes in his hometown of St. Augustine, FL.
"There was the concern about his ex [Hope Higginbotham], but I felt as if we had moved past it," Fletcher said.
Hayes was accused of dumping Higginbotham just to appear on The Bachelorette. However, the suitor insisted to Fletcher his choice to leave the three-plus year relationship was part of an effort to change his life upside down following the death of a close friend.
Hayes allegedly moved, quit his job and broke up with Higginbotham around the time of late December.
"Talking with him on this date in Thailand I knew we were on the same page and it was an azmazing feeling," Fletcher revealed.
"I remember growing so much more confident in what we had. I decided there was nothing more holding me back from wanting more time with Robby. And going into the Fantasy Suite I was excited to spend alone time with this man I was in love with."
Fletcher capped off Hayes' section in her blog by saying, "It really was the perfect date."
The Bachelorette's twelfth-season finale airs next Monday night, and Fletcher has provided a teaser on what will go down.
"Next week my family will meet the two men I can see a future with. I could also be accepting a proposal and saying goodbye to a man I love. It's a big week, and I'm not going to lie to you guys -- it was a really heart-wrenching time for me," Fletcher wrote in her People blog.
In fact, the 25-year-old Dallas real estate developer suggested "heart-wrenching" might be an understatement.
"I knew being in love with two men wouldn't be easy, but I had no idea just how devastating it could get," Fletcher said.
Fletcher never really understood how Ben Higgins could've fallen in love with two women at once on The Bachelor until she lived a few months in his shoes filming The Bachelorette.
"I fully understand the pressure that Ben had been going through. And I just hope like him, I make the right decision for me," Fletcher explained, referencing how Higgins appears to be happy with his fiancee Lauren Bushnell.
"Thank you again for supporting me through this journey, I cannot believe it's almost over!"
But before The Bachelorette finale, the season's The Men Tell All episode airs Tuesday, July 26 at 8PM ET/PT.
"P.S. Can you believe it's already time for Men Tell All?! I must say I've missed these guys, one... not so much. But trust me, you'll want to tune in!" Fletcher wrote.
