July 16, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
Looking at all these television options on a post-Comic-Con Monday feels a little overwhelming, but hopefully you guys will be able to appreciate them better than I will.
Take a look at all of your choices for tonight…
The Bachelorette | 8pm on ABC
“The Men Tell All”
It’s an exciting, unpredictable reunion viewers won’t want to miss, as the most memorable bachelors from this season – including Sean, Chris, Kalon, Ryan, Doug, John “Wolf,” Tony and Travis – return to confront each other and Emily one last time on national television to dish the dirt and tell their side of the story. Tensions flare as the guys face off about one of the most disliked bachelors this season — Ryan. And one of the most controversial men, Kalon, takes the hot seat and gets a severe dressing down by the rest of the bachelors over his behavior. Sean, a devastated fan-favorite, also takes the hot seat, revealing how he handled his broken heart. Emily and Chris Harrison look back at some of the unforgettable moments of the season, as well as some unseen gems. A special preview of the third season of “Bachelor Pad” will also be presented
Hell’s Kitchen | 8pm on Fox
“9 Chefs Compete”
Chef Ramsay wants to put the remaining chefs’ palates to the test, so he brings in professional competitive eater, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut for a head-to-head wing eating competition. As if that weren’t enough, he follows up with one of his favorite and most notoriously difficult challenges – the blind taste test – and one contestant makes HELL’S KITCHEN history.
Fear Factor | 9pm on NBC
“Leeches & Shaved Heads & Tear Gas, Oh My! – Part 2″
Contestants must put on a brave face when they are pushed to their limits in hopes of winning $100,000. In the first stunt, contestants are ripped off a cliff’s edge and sent hurtling into space on a bungee line attached to a helicopter 500 feet away. Highlights from subsequent stunts include contestants being submerged in a tub full of leeches before having to consume 10 leeches; teammates working their way up a five-story building engulfed in flames, before being rocketed off the roof in an enormous explosion; and, teams facing their fears as they are confronted with the challenge of being tear gassed, tattooed or having their head and eyebrows shaved.
So much more. Keep reading…
Masterchef | 9pm on Fox
“Top 8 Compete”
The judges put on their cowboy boots and take the Top 8 finalists to a Southern California rodeo where they will work in teams to prepare, cook and serve a hearty steak meal for 101 hungry cowboys. The winning team advances to the next round of competition, while the other amateur cooks must hop back in the saddle and compete in a heated pressure test. With elimination at stake and only twenty minutes to prepare six eggs in four different ways, the intensity reaches a boiling point.
American Ninja Warrior | 9pm on NBC
Top finishers from the NBC regional finals tackle the ultimate challenge – a four stage course modeled after the famed ‘Mount Midoriyama’ course in Japan. Tonight’s competitors take on Stage 1, which includes a Jumping Spider, Half Pipe Attack and Spinning Bridge. Only the competitors skilled enough to conquer all 8 obstacles will move onto Stage 2. Comedian Matt Iseman and Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley host and Angela Sun (“Yahoo! Sports Minute”) reports from the sidelines as the competitors continue in their quest for the $500,000 cash prize and the chance to win the first “American Ninja Warrior” title.

The Glass House | 10:02pm on ABC
Following the elimination of either Ashley or Kevin, the remaining players navigate the field in a game called “Choose Your Weapon,” where each team has to defend its glass windmill. The first team to break all of the opposing team’s glass – using a variety of “weapons” – wins the challenge. Later two new contestants will be put into limbo, and it’s up to the viewers to decide who is voted back into the house and who is sent home permanently.
