The hills are alive with the sound of yodeling on tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette, and while it’s hard enough to get over that fact, we’re also going to deal with some unseasonably sad losses. Yes, that’s right, on the episode not one, not two, but three of our favorite fellas are going to be hitting the road right out of Desiree Hartsock’s love igloo.

So, who are the unlucky fellas that will be left behind on the gang’s first whirlwind stop (Atlantic City doesn’t count, for obvious reasons)?

Brace yourselves, guys, because tonight is the dreaded 2-on-1 date, with one gentleman sitting pretty with a rose, and the other getting the ol’ heave-ho. And tonight, that unlucky lover is everyone’s favorite time stealer Ben Scott. Yep. It’s a sad, sad, sad day for lovers of spaghetti strapped man tanks and evil grins. Pour a wine cooler out for our lost homie.

Ben’s departure isn’t the only shocker: Bryden Vukasin will also be leaving on a jet plane post-haste, but not because Des isn’t digging him — just the opposite! While stories are a little hazy on why he leaves, Reality Steve reports that the reason for the departure is rooted in a classic case of another woman back home. We can’t wait to see how it plays out on television...

Oh, and last off the farm? Well, that would be Mikey "Totally Not a Meathead" Tenerelli. Why? Des is probably sick of the checked shirt he keeps wearing at Rose Ceremonies (yeah, we said it).

The end. For real.
