Tonight is the show’s Hometown Heroes show, showing each of the top three contestants visiting their respective hometown cities. Haley went to Wheeling, IL, where she was greeted by a ton of fans! She cried as she captured some moments on her Super 8 camera. She said it had been three months since she’s seen her family, but it felt like forever.
