On Monday, Ben Higgins will appear on your television in episode 8 of The Bachelor, and he will have to reduce the number of remaining ladies to three. The hometown dates saw Ben send home one more possible love of his life, and now only three remain, but it won’t be that way long. There are only three episodes left in the 2016 season as well, and it’s going to come down to the overnight dates, the “Women Tell All” special, and the season finale.
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.
Tonight in episode 8, Ben Higgins goes on the four hometown dates and ends up sending Amanda Stanton home. Yes, even after meeting her children. That leaves just Lauren Bushnell, Caila Quinn, and JoJo Fletcher to go after Ben’s heart.
Now, it’s time to see who gets eliminated along the rest of the way.
Episode 9 – Airing Feb. 29
Caila Quinn is eliminated.
Many really thought that Caila Quinn was going to make it through to the very end and be the woman that Ben Higgins proposed to. She made it further than 24 other women did, and ended up in Jamaica for the overnight dates.
In a rather intriguing note, Buddy TV has revealed that Chris Harrison, host of The Bachelor, had some choice words about Ben Higgins for the overnight dates. When speaking of the time spent with the three remaining women in Jamaica, Harrison says that Higgins was “not gentlemanly enough.”
From there, Harrison did go on to say that “a gentleman can still be a generous lover” before finishing his comments about Ben Higgins. That may add a lot of truth to the rumors going around that Ben slept with all three women during their separate overnight dates.
Having done that, he may have also given a lot of false hope to the two that didn’t end up being his “true love.”
Down to two women
Episode 10 – This will be the “Women Tell All” special that is going to air on March 7.
This won’t be the typical episode where Ben Higgins goes on dates and does all of that kind of stuff with the remaining ladies. Only Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher are left on this season of The Bachelor, and they will be once this episode is over as well.
In this episode, the women who have been eliminated will come back and share their secrets, tales, and more about Ben Higgins and their time on the show. This will be that episode which makes a lot of people either hate or love Ben, and it could bring some cringe-worthy moments to the bachelor himself.
A lot of people are waiting to see what Amanda Stanton may have to say since she was eliminated in episode 8 after the hometown dates. This was also after Ben met her parents and her two young children from a previous marriage.
Episode 11 – Season finale from Jamaica
Yes, two weeks may have passed since it was brought down to the final two, but don’t let it seem weird that they are still in Jamaica. All of this was filmed months ago which means it was the overnight dates and then the season finale shortly after.
Once all is said and done, the winner of the 2016 season is going to be chosen from JoJo Fletcher or Lauren Bushnell. ABC has done their best to keep it all a secret, but with social media in existence, that just can’t happen.
Ben Higgins’ final choice on this season of The Bachelor is indeed Lauren Bushnell, and they are now engaged to be married. Reality Steve had his predictions before things were even taped, and they have proven to be correct yet again, but he thought Caila would be in the final two.
Yes, the 2016 season of The Bachelor is coming to an end very soon, and the rose ceremony eliminations are down to virtually no women. The spoilers for the order of the eliminations has varied by publication, but this is how things will go down with only three episodes left to go.
