This season of The Bachelorette is a lot closer to the end than many may realize, and that is even with all of the delays that have come about. JoJo Fletcher is ready to go on her hometown dates with the final four guys, and the end result may not be as cemented in place as people think. Luke Pell, Jordan Rodgers, Robby Hayes, and Chase McNary hope that their homes and families will be enough to win JoJo’s heart so they can make it to the final three.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
After delays stemming from the fifth game of the 2016 NBA Finals and the Fourth of July holiday, Episode 8 of The Bachelorette is going to air on July 18, 2016. Even though JoJo kept both Alex W. and James Taylor around with an extra rose given out, she does get rid of both of them in Episode 7.
That means it’s time for the hometown dates.
As reported by Reality Steve, JoJo will go on the first hometown date with Chase McNary in Castle Rock, Colorado. Oddly enough, there is not a lot known about this date and absolutely nothing made its way out from it.
Hometown date number two will be with Robby Hayes as they head to St. Augustine, Florida. It was originally set to take place at Aunt Kate’s restaurant, but Reality Steve apparently spoiled things so early that ABC moved things around.

Robby and JoJo do head around town a bit before going to the docks and going on the water in St. Augustine.
For the third hometown date, JoJo Fletcher flew into Burnet, Texas, to meet up with Luke Pell and his family. At one point, the couple was filming right out front of the Trailblazer Grill as reported by the restaurant’s Facebook page, but the post has since been removed.
Finally, there is the trip to Chico, California, so JoJo can go on a hometown date with Jordan Rodgers. The Parent Herald reported that there could be some problems with this couple, but for Episode 8, they appeared to have a really good time.
Jordan took JoJo to where he spent a lot of his younger days at Pleasant Valley High School, and he gave her a bit of a tour.

Not a whole lot more is known about their date, but things went well as Jordan isn’t going home.
Now, this is where things have gotten a bit confusing. Reality Steve originally reported that Chase McNary was going to be eliminated after the hometown dates, but has since changed that. Near the end of May, he updated his spoilers to say that it’s actually Luke Pell who is sent home and Chase makes it into the final three.
Now, everyone needs to remember that this is the order of the hometown dates as they were filmed, but ABC could always switch things up in the editing process. They may not necessarily take place in this order, so be prepared for anything.
That’s it, JoJo Fletcher is going on hometown dates with four guys next week, and after they’re done, she will have it down to just three. Luke Pell will not make it past the hometown dates even though he was originally said to be heading to Thailand for the Fantasy Suite dates. It’s going to be Chase McNary, Jordan Rodgers, and Robby Hayes, but one has to wonder if the spoilers for The Bachelorette truly are correct or if everyone is in for a big surprise.
