The big Bachelorette reunion was everything we hoped for and more!
Twelve of the last 14 Bachelorettes united on Monday's ABC special ahead of Hannah Brown's upcoming season, and ET was live blogging along the way.
Trista Sutter (season one), DeAnna Pappas (season four), Jillian Harris (season five), Ali Fedotowsky (season six), Ashley Rosenbaum (season seven), Emily Maynard (season eight), Desiree Hartsock (season nine), Andi Dorfman (season 10), Kaitlyn Bristowe (season 11), JoJo Fletcher (season 12), Rachel Lindsay (season 13) and Becca Kufrin (season 14) came together for the two-hour episode, which Chris Harrison told ET would be "just celebrating these badass women doing their thing."
Noticeably missing from the get-together were Meredith Phillips (season two) and Jen Schefft (season three), who just couldn't make it, according to Harrison. Find out what each Bachelorette has been up to since the show here, and scroll down for all the excitement from the special -- including a sneak peek from Hannah's season!
Hannah's a Force to Be Reckoned With
Hannah's "dramatic journey" to find love begins next week, and the promo is GOOOOOOD. There's men in Speedos, makeout sessions, and Hannah breaking down over the process.
"None of you know anything about me, and what makes me me, and things I've gone through. Nobody's even asked, because all we do is talk about stupid sh*t!" she yells at the guys.
In another scene, Demi and Katie roll up in a surveillance van to spy on the guys on night one -- leading Hannah to a confrontation.
But by the end of the season, multiple guys are "in love" with Hannah, and she tells one man she's "falling in love" with him.
The guys get territorial, fight in kilts, get fired up and send one man away in an ambulance. The promo ends with Hannah walking through a field of flowers, and holding onto her final rose. "I want someone to fight for me. That's what I deserve," she says.
"I look up to my dad, because my dad grew up really poor. He lived in his car," Hannah reveals before taking Chris to meet her father. "He walked into a barber shop and asked for a job."
"If you're gong to be representing my daughter, I'm going to need to clean up those rough edges," Hannah's dad tells Chris, before giving him a hair cut.
"She can be stubborn. She does what she wants. And that's the reason she hasn't met the right man yet," her dad continues, before Chris praises his hair cut.
Chris and Hannah Get Deep Over Breakfast
There's still over 100 days until kickoff (Roll Tide! Is that how this works?), but Chris reminds Hannah that she could be engaged by then.
The two then meet all of Hannah's friends and family around Tuscaloosa. "I feel like people are rallying around me and believing in me," she raves. "The love from my hometown is so incredible and is really the best way to start this journey.
Let's Meet Alabama Hannah!
Chris heads to Alabama to surprise Hannah -- and digs around her stuff while she gets ready.
"That's Joey Fatone. I did not know her dad was a Backstreet Boy!" Chris says while checking out an old photo of Hannah and her dad... uh, what? No, Chris. No.
"I think I know why you've been single so long," he jokes while snooping through her closet.
Kaitlyn, who is now dating Becca's castoff, Jason, says she reached out to Becca before making her first move.
"I'm a big Becca guy, and I'm a classy lady," she explains.
Well Wishes for Hannah
The women can't help but gush over our new Bachelorette, Hannah Brown.
"I'm gonna say it. I think she's gonna be one of the best Bachelorettes in history," Kaitlyn says.

Finding Common Ground

"We all dated Nick, every single one of us," Kaitlyn jokes. "And then, thank the lord for Becca, who sent Jason home -- who I'm now dating."
Jillian Gets Real
Jillian keeps it real! While chatting over wine with the other ladies, Jillian confesses that during a pool party, she jumped on Jason Mesnick's shoulders, but forgot to shave her legs -- or get a bikini wax.
The women laugh, reminisce about old times and share their experiences. "These women paved the way for me," Rachel says.
Sounds like things didn't get too intimate between Rachel and Nick Viall in the fantasy suite.
"It's where I got my best night's sleep," she shares.
It's Time for the Reunion!

Justin Rego Isn't 'Rated R' Anymore
Justin doesn't wrestle anymore -- or walk away from women who accuse him of having girlfriends. Now he's a bartender, and proud of it.
"What can I say? The girls definitely love Rated R," he jokes. "It's just Justin now."
Oh, Wes! He was the first guy to make it to the final four of The Bachelorette -- and brag about it.
Now, it's time to revisit Jillian's castoff. "Thanks to The Bachelorette, man, for giving me my start," a grayer Wes tells the camera.
