The Bachelor Review: Hometown Dates

The Bachelor Review: Hometown Dates

On last night’s episode of The Bachelor, we saw Ben Flajnik going to each of the remaining ladies’ hometowns to win over their families. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our full recap here.

Lindzi’s hometown date was first, as she welcomed Ben to Ocala, Florida on a horse. The two went for a carriage ride and lunch and she opens up to him about a previous relationship that was serious. Lindzi’s family really took to Ben, welcoming him to their family if he decides to propose to her.

For his second hometown date, Ben ventures off to Kacie B.’s hometown of Clarksville, Tennessee. Kacie has a strong connection with her religious family and her parents don’t want them living together if he proposes. That, along with the fact that her father doesn’t drink, really sealed in Kacie’s demise on the show.

Thirdly, Ben went to Nicki’s hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. They go boot and hat shopping and after looking through some pretty atrocious looking footwear, they settle on boots that aren’t hideous. Ben meets her family and she tells them that she’s in love with Ben. Nicki’s father is overprotective and doesn’t want to see her hurt again over a failed relationship. Her family liked Ben, obviously.

Lastly, he goes to Scottsdale, Arizona, where he meets up with Courtney. She introduces Ben to her family and her mother was skeptical at first, but warmed up to him. Courtney stages some wedding-like vows ceremony where she tells him that she is in love with him.

In the end, it was Kacie B. who got sent home packing. She was miffed and wondering exactly where she went wrong. After she watches the show, she will realize that she’s too good for Ben and likely say that it was a good thing that she left.
