Amanda Stanton is one of Ben Higgins’ final four bachelorettes on ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season, and she is taking him home to meet her family. Episode 8, set to air Monday night, features Amanda’s date, as well as the other hometown dates for JoJo Fletcher, Caila Quinn, and Lauren Bushnell. What Bachelor spoilers are available for Stanton’s time at home with Higgins?
As viewers know, Amanda Stanton has two little girls with her ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio. Stanton, 25, has Kinsley and Charlie, who are 3 and 2. While it’s always a big decision on this show when it comes to introducing children into the mix, Bachelor spoilers have made it clear that Ben and Amanda do include her kids in this hometown date.
Entertainment Tonight shares a Bachelor spoiler sneak peek of Ben meeting Amanda’s two daughters on the beach. The two girls are clearly pretty intimidated by the scenario, but Ben does seem to win them over as the day at the beach moves along. From the looks of things, this quartet has a lovely outing together, despite the awkward beginning.
Of course, many wonder if Higgins would really be ready to jump into an instant family like he would get if he were to pick Amanda and become a step-dad. However, fans know that Ben has a passion for working with children, and has volunteered with kids in many ways over the years. From the looks of the Bachelor spoilers for Monday’s episode, Higgins does indeed charm Kinsley and Charlie before the day is done.
Other Episode 8 dates include a hometown date for Lauren Bushnell, where both her father and sister ask some intense questions. The Bachelor spoilers even tease that Ben gets emotional as he talks about his feelings for Lauren. Caila Quinn’s meeting with Higgins includes some time at a toy factory and more family questions.
Many are buzzing about JoJo Fletcher’s hometown date, as there will be drama. Entertainment Weekly shares the Bachelor sneak peek showing a bit of the challenges that Fletcher faces in this episode. While JoJo is excited for her time with Ben, her ex-boyfriend, Chad, throws a wrench into things. Just before Higgins arrives to begin his date, Fletcher opens up a letter that has been sent by Chad, and she is clearly shaken up by this unexpected contact.
Additional Bachelor spoilers indicate that things get a bit intense when JoJo’s brothers voice their skepticism about her relationship with Ben. Will all of this interference torpedo JoJo’s chances to earn a rose from Ben? According to Reality Steve’s Bachelor spoilers, it’s Amanda Stanton who will be eliminated at this Episode 8 rose ceremony.
Will the issue for Higgins be that Amanda is already a mom, or will it just be that his connection to some of the other ladies is stronger? Could Stanton go on to become the Bachelorette 2016 lead as some are speculating, or will the gig go to one of the other ladies in this final group? Next up will be Ben Higgins’ overnight fantasy dates in Episode 9 airing on Monday, February 29, and fans cannot wait to watch these.
While Reality Steve’s spoilers teased a clear frontrunner as filming was taking place for Season 20, Bachelor spoiler previews for the final couple of episodes have taunted viewers with tidbits indicating that Ben tells two women he loves them, paving the way for a blindside at the final rose ceremony. Who scores Ben Higgins’ final rose in ABC’s The Bachelor 2016 season? Will the final couple find lasting love and end up walking down the aisle, or will there be heartbreak on the way?
