‘Bachelor’ Hometown Date Spoilers: Ben Makes A Shocking Decision, One Girl Leaves Broken-Hearted

Hometown Date Caila and Ben

Bachelor Ben Higgins heads to the hometowns of his final four girls on Monday night and fans are in for a very emotional episode with one girl leaving after some rather stressful family introductions.

With just three weeks to go before the season finale, Ben has some big decisions to make, starting with a tough one — who to send home after hometowns and who to bring to the Fantasy Suite next week.

Here are the latest spoilers and video previews to get you started before Episode 8 starts tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

On Monday night, Ben will visit Amanda Stanton in California, JoJo Fletcher in Texas, Caila Quinn in Ohio, and Lauren Bushnell in Oregon.

Ben’s hometown date with JoJo won’t be a light-hearted one. The preview video below shows JoJo opening a letter from her ex-boyfriend, Chad Rookstool, right before Ben stops by. If this isn’t enough drama for you, add JoJo’s family in the mix — her brothers give Ben such a hard time, he may have second thoughts about keeping her as his frontrunner.

According to ABC, his visit to Amanda will include her two daughters, ages 1 and 3. Is Ben ready to be a full-time father? That’s a question that Amanda’s parents will ask him because his life is about to change in a big way if he takes on that responsibility.

Caila Quinn wasn’t sure she would make it to hometowns, but she was saved by the power of the rose last week when Becca Tilley went home. This week, Caila will make a little progress with Ben, but it’s clear she is still holding back. Is she ready to commit to Ben or are the rumors true — did Caila come on the show to score the Bachelorette gig?

Lauren Bushnell’s date with Ben gets off to a great start when they share some rather gigantic donuts in Portland, Oregon. However, the family meeting is one that will have Ben’s head spinning. Watch for an overprotective sister and an equally cautious father to make the hometown date a little unsettling for both Ben and Lauren.

Who does Ben send home at the post-hometown rose ceremony? If Reality Steve‘s spoilers are correct, Amanda will go home to her girls and JoJo, Lauren, and Caila will move on to the overnight dates next week.

Why did Ben send Amanda home? Watch tonight’s episode and find out exactly what his reasons were, but there is speculation that it wasn’t the instant father situation — Ben may have felt less connected to Amanda, although many fans see the same disconnect with Caila. 

Do you think Ben made a good decision sending Amanda home?
