Hometowns – Bachelor Ep. 8 Recap

This is the week everyone anticipates the most, next to the final rose ceremony.

I mean, Arie meets 4 very different families, and the most difficult part is that he is falling in love with each of them. Maybe it’s not the same exact feeling for each one, but he does have very strong feelings for them. Which makes it so much more harder when it’s time to send someone home.

Let’s take a moment and recap.

Who’s home does Arie visit first?

Kendall –

Los Angeles, California

Everyone knows that out of the 4 women left, Kendall is the odd one. But she is extremely proud of the way she is.

That’s why she decided to take Arie to her Taxidermy warehouse. They toured it and then Kendall gave Arie a lesson on how to mount a rat.

He obviously thought it was really weird, but he just kept going with it because he really does like Kendall.

Afterwards they went to get something to drink and discuss their feelings toward one another.

Now that he felt a little comfortable, it was time to go to Kendall’s home.

img_2548

Arie meets her mom Michelle, her dad Bob, her twin sister Kylie & her brother Colton.

As well all know, everyone starts talking and asking questions.

img_2553img_2552

While Kendall is talking to her family, Kylie decides to take Arie away.

img_2557

They talk about his relationship with Kendall. And he does tell her that he is falling for her. Which definitely surprises her. This was just a little taste of what he will be experiencing, because now it’s daddy’s turn to talk to him.

img_2558

Bob explained to Arie that he cannot give his blessing for a proposal just yet, because Arie still does have 3 other girls, but if he knows that Kendall is the one, and if Kendall wants to marry him, he has his blessing, phewww

All in all, Kendall’s Hometown went really good. Let’s hope it continues this way.

Who’s next?

Tia –

img_2564

Wiener, Arkansas

img_2561

Tia decides to do something that will allow Arie to be in his element. They go racing.

img_2568img_2567img_2569img_2570img_2571img_2572img_2573

This makes him a little more comfortable to meet the most southern family this season.

img_2575

Arie meets Tia’s mom Denise, her dad Kenny, her brother Jason, her aunt Carol and her cousin Rhonda.

img_2577img_2585img_2580img_2581

She is the princess of the family, so you already figured that their questions are not easy.

img_2523

img_2582

Her brother Jason asked Arie if the rumors are true. Is he a playboy? Will he play his sister? Arie obviously denied everything and said that what he feels for Tia is very real.

img_2586

Her father also asked the same thing and Arie answered as best he could. He didn’t ask for his blessing, so that kind of took me by surprise. Is he not feeling as strongly for Tia?

img_2587

Well we’ll just have to wait and see. But up this point, everything went well in Tia’s hometown.

Next hometown is —-

Becca K. –

img_2591

img_2594

Minneapolis, Minnesota

img_2589

Cutest date thus far.

They went apple picking and made candy apples.

img_2596img_2597img_2598img_2599img_2600img_2602img_2601img_2604

That’s an amazing date, at least for me!

Arie then goes to meet Becca’s family.

img_2605img_2609

He meets her mom Jill, and uncle Gary. There are more family members there; however those 2 are the important ones, because after her father died, uncle Gary became her father figure.

img_2607img_2608

All while their questions were difficult and both were very skeptical, Arie did receive Jill’s blessing. This make this hometown a success in my opinion.

img_2613

Last but not lease we visit –

Lauren B. –

img_2623img_2618

Virginia Beach, Virginia

img_2614

Riding horses on a beach? Something everyone wants to experience at least once in their life. Apparently you can do this often in Virginia Beach.

img_2620img_2621img_2624img_2625img_2626

Afterwards, they climb to the top of a lighthouse to enjoy the view.

img_2627img_2628img_2629img_2630

How more romantic can this date get?

img_2632

Well, I think the romanticism stops there, because it’s time to meet his possible in-laws.

img_2633

Arie meets Lauren’s mom Pamela, her dad Dave, her brother, her sister, aunt and grandma. Big family. And they are not one to mess with.

img_2636img_2635img_2640img_2634

During Arie’s visit, there were a lot of quiet awkward moments.

img_2641

img_2521img_2638

img_2639

So it was extremely nerve-wracking when Dave asked to speak to Arie in private.

img_2643

All he really wanted to do was let Arie know that Lauren is his baby and that he doesn’t want her to get hurt, but if he does love Lauren, and if Lauren loves him, he has his blessing.

img_2644img_2642

Her mom was a bit skeptical, I mean who wouldn’t, but in the end she loves and trusts Lauren. She also gave her blessing.

img_2645

Another successful hometown.

img_2646img_2647

Now the biggest decision for Arie at that moment is who will he be sending home.

img_2648

I don’t think I would ever be able to do that. Meeting someone’s family and then having to send them home, basically telling that person that she isn’t going to be the one he loves.

You would think that Arie would go in, call 3 names, send the 4th person home and that’s that. This time was a bit different.

He walked in, and then apologized, and walked right out. It seemed like he couldn’t make his decision, he needed more time to think.

img_2651

When he walked back in, he asked to speak to Kendall in privacy. The remaining women got really nervous. They didn’t know what was going on.

img_2653

Arie asked Kendall some questions, and in the end she told him that she didn’t to lose him. She is also falling deeply for him.

img_2654img_2655

It seems like after that conversation, Arie got the clarity that was much needed.

The 3 women to receive roses are:

Becca K.

img_2660

Lauren B.

img_2664

& The last person to receive a rose is …

Kendall

img_2665

This leaves Tia devastated and going home. Arie doesn’t really have an explanation for her. Something just felt off.

img_2666img_2667img_2668

I really haven’t seen anyone that is not the final 2 be so devastated in going home. I wonder what she’ll have to say in the Women Tell All.

Who will be Arie’s top 2? What will the women say on Sunday’s Women Tell All Special? Will Krystal be there? Does she have anything to say for herself? We’ll just have to wait & see.
