A few weeks into summer and I realized something: There’s nothing like popping some popcorn, pouring a glass of wine and watching the drama of The Bachelorette unfold on Monday nights… except for maybe doing the same for The Bachelor. This season there are so many contestants and even though we have been introduced to them all several times, here's a cheat sheet to keep them all straight.

But first, let’s take a moment for our fallen bachelors…
