"I might have prematurely in college freshman year accidentally... and so that’s maybe how..." Shooter explained. Watch the video.

Replied Fedotowsky, 25: "You are a brave man for telling that story, that’s a good one.  What the ----!"

He wasn't the only guy who stood out.

John C. presented Fedotowsky with a cubic zirconia ring, Chris N. gave her a rose, Kirk made her a paper rose and a scrap book, Jason did a back flip off the hood of the limo and Hunter played the ukulele.

At the end of the show, Fedotowsky cut eight guys -- including Shooter. "It was a really hard decision," she said.
