The 2016 season of The Bachelor is much closer to the end of it all than anything else, and Ben Higgins now has it down to the final four women for his hometown dates. Episode 7 featured Ben sending a couple of women home, including Becca Tilley, who was the early season favorite. Now, the remaining ladies are back in the states and it’s time to check out the spoilers for one of the final episodes of the season.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new season of The Bachelor starring Ben Higgins. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
Episode 8 will air on February 22, and it’s down to four remaining women: Amanda Stanton, Cail Quinn, Lauren Bushnell, and JoJo Fletcher. Believe it or not, Reality Steve called them correctly back at the end of October, and now, three-and-a-half months later, fans are there.

To begin things next Monday, Ben Higgins takes out Amanda Stanton on the first hometown date and they head to the private beach at Treasure Island in Laguna Beach, California. Many have been wondering how this would all go with Amanda’s daughters, and Ben did end up meeting them.
As reported by The Heavy some time ago, Amanda does have two daughters and they’re young. The divorced mother-of-two has a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old, and Ben will get the chance to meet them.
Caila Quinn’s hometown date was filmed second, and a good bit of it took place at Western Reserve Academy which is her high school.

The third date was JoJo Fletcher and she had her hometown date filmed on Nov. 1, 2015, but there isn’t a whole lot known about it. It’s known that her date was in Dallas, Texas, as that is where JoJo is from, but what they did remains to be seen. Last week, they had some fun at Wrigley Field as JoJo donned the gear.
Finally, the last hometown date will go to Lauren Bushnell who has started a bit of drama online in the past month or so. If you don’t want to know, don’t click this link, but click it if you’re looking to get one of the major spoilers of this season.
For Lauren B’s date, ABC traveled to Portland, Oregon, so Ben Higgins went to all sorts of places in the United States in just about the matter of a week. It is known that the two ended up at a location known as “Food Truck Square” which is a popular spot for locals.

Episode 8 is that point in any season of The Bachelor where roses aren’t handed out on individual dates anymore, and it all comes down to the rose ceremony elimination. By the end of the episode on Feb. 22, all four women will be present, but only three of them will make it through.
The hometown dates hold a lot for Ben Higgins, but it appears things didn’t go well for Amanda Stanton as she is sent home during the rose ceremony elimination. It will be interesting to see how things go between Ben, her, and her children earlier in the episode to see if that played any into her being sent home.
After episode 8, there are only three episodes remaining, but one will be the “Women Tell All” special once it’s down to just two women remaining. Caila Quinn, Lauren Bushnell, and JoJo Fletcher remain in the race to win Ben Higgins’ heart, but who do the spoilers say will win?
