Bachelor Ben Higgins is just weeks away from the highly anticipated Fantasy Suite dates, followed by what is expected to be a very emotional final rose ceremony.
Who are Ben’s final three ladies, where do they travel for the overnight dates, and who sleeps with Ben in the Fantasy Suite?
Here’s the scoop on what fans can expect over the next few weeks as Ben gets closer to handing out his final rose and a sparkling Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
After a stop in his hometown of Warsaw, Indiana (Week 7, February 15), Ben will visit his final four ladies for their individual hometown dates (Week 8, February 22).
According to Reality Steve, Caila, Amanda, JoJo, and Lauren B. will all get a chance to introduce their families to Ben. Unfortunately, Amanda’s journey to find love ends after her date (one that includes her two children) — she does not get a rose and heads home.
Caila, JoJo, and Lauren B., all frontrunners this season, are Ben’s final three. They will travel to Ocho Rios, Jamaica (Week 9, February 29) where they will meet Ben’s parents, go on individual dates (cue the bikini’s and shirtless Ben promos), and accept — or reject — the key to the Fantasy Suite.
Other than Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of the Bachelorette, cameras don’t usually lurk outside the door recording a couple’s intimate moments, so fans won’t know for sure if Ben has sex with all three girls unless they kiss and tell after the season ends.
My guess? It’s obvious that he’s had his eye on one woman all season — chances are he slept on a cot during his stay with the other two — something that could definitely lead to some drama if the girls aren’t feeling the love from Ben.
Apparently things don’t go so well for Caila in the Fantasy Suite – spoilers indicate that she eliminated at the Week 9 rose ceremony, but fans will have to wait until the episode airs to find out why Ben rejected Caila.

Caila’s exit will undoubtedly be very emotional — it may be the one time when Caila is not seen grinning from ear to ear. However, the positive disposition she maintained all season may turn out to be a good thing. Although she gets her heart broken by Ben, there is speculation that she is a top contender for the next Bachelorette.

The must-see Women Tell All special will air after the Fantasy Suite dates episode (March 7) — expect to see Olivia in the hot seat.
Ben Higgins’ season will come to an end on March 14 — the final rose ceremony was also filmed in Jamaica, a beautiful backdrop for a rumored proposal.
ABC’s previews show Ben admitting that he’s in love with two girls — Lauren B. and JoJo — but that may be a bit of producer manipulation. If Reality Steve‘s spoilers are correct, Ben proposed and he is still engaged to the girl he gave his final rose (and a ring) to.
