JoJo Fletcher has gone through a lot during last season of The Bachelor and now having to decide from 26 guys on The Bachelorette. For all she has had to deal with, though, it’s only getting harder for her to find true love. This Monday, she has it down to just six guys, but two of them will have to be sent home so the world can make way for the final four and the hometown dates. Who is leaving and heading for home tomorrow? Will James and/or Alex make it through?
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of The Bachelorette for 2016. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
In Episode 6 of The Bachelorette, which now seems so long ago, JoJo got to the elimination ceremony and actually had to pull Chris Harrison aside. It was then that she asked for an additional rose because she couldn’t send home James Taylor or Alex Woytkiw, which means that she kept both of them around.

As ABC recapped, the final moments in Episode 6 were extremely tense, and it led to an ending that no one saw coming as the number of men remained the same. That will not be able to happen this week, as the bachelorette must get the number of remaining guys down to just four and that is exactly what she’s going to do.
On Monday, the group will still be in Argentina, and some more dates are going to take place with the first being the one-on-one date with Alex Woytkiw. Now, the United States Marine was able to stay in the game this long, and he was even on the two-on-one date that saw Chad Johnson get sent home a couple of episodes ago.
Alex takes it upon himself to go all in, as reported by Reality Steve, and tell JoJo that he loves her and wants to always be with her. This is not something that has gone very well in the past, and it doesn’t go well this time either as Alex is not given a rose and is sent home.
Luke Pell has a one-on-one date as well, which has them doing a little horseback riding and then some skeet shooting. It doesn’t take much convincing, but Luke ends up in her good graces and that means he’s going to be around for the hometown dates in next week’s episode.
Even though there will be two difficult decisions in this week’s episode of The Bachelorette, it’s going to get a lot more tense. Robby Hayes decides to say he is the lead choice to win JoJo’s heart, and that doesn’t sit so well with the rest of the guys.
Meanwhile, our fair lady also confronts Jordan Rodgers yet again and questions why he is really there on the show after he reveals something big to her. Shortly after all that serious talk, he does end up getting a rose during their one-on-one date.

Three one-on-one dates lead to three men remaining, and they all go on a group date. Those guys are James Taylor, Robby Hayes, and Chase McNary, and this is not going to end well for fans of the show.
Fan-favorite James will be sent home and the four hometown dates are officially set up and in place. It’s a decision that was easy to make, and there were a lot of fans who were truly hoping to see James make it all the way to the end.
ABC is notorious for fiddling around with the editing of different episodes of The Bachelorette and moving things around so the spoilers aren’t exactly right. After the delays with the 2016 NBA Finals and the Fourth of July, things were a little out-of-order, but all should happen as described here.
This season of The Bachelorette has had its ups and downs and lots of delays, but things are getting incredibly serious now. JoJo Fletcher had to send home the two guys (Alex and James) that she was so stuck on in the last episode that she couldn’t send home either. Now, the final four are in place and the hometown dates are ready to happen, but it will only get harder from here.
