Season 20 of ABC’s hit reality series “The Bachelor” has been extremely emotional. As the show comes to an end, Ben Higgins has to choose from the final four contestants who are ready to give their heart and share their life with him.
The latest instalment of the reality show, Season 20 Episode 8, will include hometown dates. The bachelor will finally get a chance to visit his ladies’ families and decide if he loves them equally. At the end of the episode, one contestant will be eliminated.
Ben’s first hometown date will take place in Orange County, California, where he will visit Amanda Stanton’s family. The promo indicates Ben’s meeting with Amanda’s dad does not go well. The overprotective father will shoot a lot of uncomfortable questions at Ben, one of them being if he’s ready to inherit a family of three. Although Ben has volunteered and worked with kids, it remains to be seen if he is ready to be with a family.
Ben’s next date will take place at Portland, where he will meet Lauren Bushnell’s family. In the promo, he says he feels welcomed but that’s before Lauren’s sister expects to hear the truth about Ben’s relationship with Lauren.
Elsewhere in the episode, the bachelor will travel to Ohio and Texas to meet Caila Quinn and JoJo Fletcher’s families. While Caila’s parents seem as sweet and loving as her, JoJo’s brother has his doubts about Ben.
All of Ben’s dates seem fun except the one with Amanda. Will he eliminate her during the rose ceremony?

Ben goes on hometown dates to meet the families of the final four ladies. One family questions the certainty of Ben’s feelings and brings him to tears, and a concerned dad grills Ben at another home. One bachelorette is blindsided by something very unexpected.
