Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher heads to the hometowns of her final four guys in just three weeks, an episode that will leave one contestant broken-hearted and three guys totally pumped to spend some one-on-one time with JoJo during the overnight dates in the Fantasy Suite.
The hometown dates episode is expected to air on ABC on July 18, one week after JoJo has to decide which four guys will move on to hometowns during the Episode 7 rose ceremony that airs on July 11.
Who makes it to hometowns, which guy gets eliminated after JoJo visits with his family, and who are the final three guys who will spend the night with the Bachelorette in the Fantasy Suite? Here’s what viewers can expect, including some changes to the outcome of the hometown dates.

Six guys remain on the episode that airs the week before hometown dates — Robby Hayes, Jordan Rodgers, Luke Pell, Chase McNary, James Taylor, and Alex Woytkiw.
According to Reality Steve, JoJo sends James and Alex home during the Episode 7 (July 11) rose ceremony in Argentina and kicks of her hometown date tour with her final four guys.
Although Steve is confident that the final four guys are Chase, Luke, Jordan, and Robby, he recently admitted that he was wrong about the hometown dates rose ceremony elimination.
Here’s how things play out on the guys’ hometown dates, including a change to the outcome of the rose ceremony.
Spoilers point to JoJo visiting Chase McNary’s hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado first; there are no details on what they did during their time in Chase’s hometown, but photos emerged on social media during her next stop to visit Robby Hayes’ family in Augustine, Florida and the couple’s one-on-one date in Jacksonville.

Spoilers point to JoJo heading to Burnet, Texas for her third hometown date with Nashville-based musician Luke Pell, followed by a date with Jordan Rodgers at his parents’ home in Chico, California.
Us Weekly reported early on in the season that Jordan Rodgers was a frontrunner and after hometowns, he continues to top the list. It won’t come as a big surprise to fans when they watch JoJo give Jordan a rose during the hometown dates rose ceremony. However, she clearly has feelings for the other guys as well, something that will play out with some big-time drama during the final rose ceremony.
Reality Steve initially stated that JoJo sent Chase home and picked Jordan Rodgers, Luke, and Robby Hayes as her final three, but weeks later he changed his spoilers after he watched the Bachelorette Season 12 trailer below.
In the video preview Chase is shown with JoJo in Thailand where the overnight dates and season finale were filmed, so it’s clear that Chase received a rose at the hometown dates rose ceremony.

The updated spoilers point to Jordan Rodgers, Chase McNary, and Robby Hayes all getting a hometown date rose. That means Luke Pell was eliminated after hometowns, but all is not lost for fans of the Nashville singer-songwriter who previously served as a platoon leader in the Afghan war — he’s rumored to be at the top of the list to become ABC’s next Bachelor.
He has the ridiculous Hollywood leading man good looks,” Chris Harrison tells Yahoo! “He is smart, kind, and charming. He is the whole package.”
We’re fanning ourselves just thinking about Luke and JoJo! https://t.co/GzFBeDojLg
