Fans have been waiting all season to see who the final four lucky suitors would be for the hometown dates on The Bachelorette. Here's everything you need to know about The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown's hometown dates.
So far on this season of The Bachelorette, Brown has had a hard time keeping the contestants from fighting with one another. Many group dates and cocktail parties have devolved into petty arguments between the men. Now, fortunately for Brown, it's down to just four guys, and things have started to calm down a bit - for the most part. Compared to the Fantasy Suites episode, which involves drama with contestant Luke Parker after the 26-year-old self-proclaimed "entrepreneur" sex-shamed Brown, the hometown dates could be smooth sailing for the bachelorette.
In the hometown dates episodes, the four remaining contestants - Luke Parker, Jed Wyatt, Tyler Cameron, and Peter Weber - took Brown home to meet their families. Per The Bachelorette rules, none of the contestants are allowed to speak to their families prior to their visits. Brown had to communicate with her family members via the producers to coordinate the televised date. Check out the teaser below:
Producers apparently ask the final four contestants to choose an activity that “means something” to them. The point is to allow the bachelorette to have some one-on-one time with the contestant before meeting their family. It also probably goes without saying, but the former bachelorette stressed that these hometown dates are deeply uncomfortable for everyone involved, but particularly for the families.
This season, things have been tense between Brown and Parker, who has been a source of frustration for other men in the house, which paved the way for an interesting visit. Then there's Wyatt's hometown, which fans will be especially interested to watch considering his ex-girlfriend revealed that the two were still dating when he left to film the show. Even the seemingly perfect Weber has been accused on social media of allegedly being in a relationship before the show - so it sounds like Brown isn't in the clear just yet.
The hometown dates bring with them plenty of drama, followed by the even more dramatic Fantasy Suites when Brown can choose to spend the night with any of her remaining bachelors. Viewers will then get a behind-the-scenes look at the season during the "Men Tell All" special, which airs the following week. During the special, former contestants from this season confront Brown and each other about what went down on the show. Then, it's just another week before fans will know for sure who Brown chooses as her future husband, and whose family she will be getting to know a lot better.
New episodes of The Bachelorette air Mondays at 8 pm EST on ABC.
