Bachelor Chris Soules goes on hometown dates with his final four ladies on Monday night, wrapping up a two-night event that begins on Sunday, February 15. Chris travels across the country to meet the girls’ families, but what he learns on one date will lead to yet another emotional elimination. [Spoilers ahead.]
Reality Steve reports that Chris’ final four includes Jade, Kaitlyn, Becca, and Whitney. Three of the women get a rose and will head to Bali for the Fantasy Suite dates episode that airs next Monday night, but Jade Roper is not one of them.
According to Starcasm, Jade, who impressed Chris on the Cinderella date a few weeks ago, reveals to one of the girls that she did some nude modeling for Playboy a few years ago. She admits that she is afraid that it may ruin her chances to get the final rose from Chris.

According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, the Playboy shoot isn’t the only issue Chris may have with Jade’s past. Jade not only posed for Playboy Amateur under the stage name of Jade Elizabeth, she also has multiple racy pictures posted online and a revealing three-minute video where she strips down to her birthday suit.
Aside from the not-so-innocent photos, Reality Steve reports that Jade also has a criminal record that includes a DUI, two counts of theft, shoplifting, and several other charges made between 2004 and 2011. Of course, it would be difficult for Chris to judge Jade for her criminal charges since he has a few of his own, including several alcohol-related arrests.

It is unclear how Chris finds out about Jade’s past, but they do spend the day together and were spotted by fans at the Gering Bakery. Fans will have to wait to see if Chris Harrison spills the beans about Jade’s past, or she admits it to Prince Farming during their date.
After the hometown dates are done, the girls meet Chris in Dubuque, Iowa, for the rose ceremony. Chris decides that bringing Jade to the overnight dates would not be a good idea — something that would surely create some controversy on the show.
He does not give Jade a rose on Monday night, and says goodbye outside of the Hotel Julien in Dubuque — as evidenced in the video below that was taken by a fan of the show. It’s obvious that Jade is upset about her departure, and Chris appears to comfort her for a few minutes before she is whisked away in a limo.
Does Chris judge Jade for her racy photos, video, and her run-ins with the law? It’s likely he won’t reveal that he does, but it’s obvious that he’s looking for someone a bit more wholesome — or at least a woman who doesn’t have a trail of nude photos online.
Tune in to watch the Bachelor hometown dates episode on Monday, February 16, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
