Episode 8 of ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season with JoJo Fletcher airs Monday night, and fans cannot wait to see what comes next. It is time for Luke Pell, Chase McNary, Jordan Rodgers, and Robby Hayes to go on their hometown dates, and one more man will be eliminated. What spoilers are available for the July 18 show?
These dates are said to be rather typical this season, unlike what everybody saw with Kaitlyn Bristowe last spring. As ABC details, JoJo Fletcher will be struggling with some intense emotions as she tries to determine whether she could possibly be in love with more than one of her guys at the same time. Viewers watched as this very same type of scenario broke her heart last winter with Bachelor Ben Higgins. Is she really falling for more than one of her final four?
According to TV Guide’s Bachelorette spoilers, one of the hometown dates will have a family involved that went through a divorce, and this seemingly impacts how the meeting goes. Jordan Rodgers spends part of his date at the high school he attended, and it seems that he will be opening up about how he is not necessarily as confident as he tends to come across.
One suitor has to deal with some gossip, and Bachelorette spoilers from Hollywood Life point toward this being related to Robby and his ex-girlfriend Hope. The fourth date involves a big gathering of family and friends as Luke introduces everybody to his gal. This may be a bit of an overwhelming crowd, but early previews make it seem that things go fairly well.
Despite the drama that ensues with Robby during his family visit regarding the gossip about his ex-girlfriend, Bachelorette spoilers would seem to indicate that he convinces Fletcher of his feelings for her and his sincerity in joining the show. Previews show that JoJo and Robby will be in Florida and go on a horse-drawn carriage ride to check out the city of St. Augustine, Florida.
People has shared a Bachelorette spoiler sneak peek into Luke’s hometown, and it looks like there will be some emotional moments. Pell will talk about how he wants a future with JoJo, and Fletcher will get tears in her eyes as she kisses him and thanks him for a good night.
She hesitates a bit, leading Luke to question what’s happening and whether her tears are happy ones. She mentions wanting more time with him and being sad about having to leave, and that would surely lead many to think that this date went fabulously well. Ultimately, however, that may not be the case.
JoJo and Jordan visit with his parents and one brother, but not his other brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Fletcher and Rodgers will visit his high school and spend time hanging around his hometown of Chino, California, and Bachelorette spoilers tease that things will get somewhat steamy.
Chase’s date in Colorado involves snow and hockey, as it seems that he will want to give her a true taste of his life there and show her how it differs from what she is used to seeing in Texas. It would seem that his family is the one where a divorce factors into the day as his parents did split when he was a young boy. How will that experience impact McNary and how he approaches his relationship with JoJo?
While it doesn’t sound as if any of the hometowns are disasters, according to gossip guru “Reality Steve,” things may not have gone as well as Pell thought during his outing with Fletcher. Before the season began, Reality Steve’s spoilers detailed that Chase was eliminated and that Luke, Robby, and Jordan headed to Thailand for the overnight fantasy suite dates. However, Steve later made a change and shares that Luke bids farewell at the next rose ceremony.
Based on the synopsis at TV Guide, it looks like fans will be left hanging without an elimination during the July 18 show. One of the guys seemingly makes a confession right before the rose ceremony, and Bachelorette spoilers indicate that the show will end there. The elimination will come at the beginning of Episode 9 airing on Monday, July 25, a move that will surely have everybody buzzing as they wait for this next big step to play out.
Will Reality Steve’s spoilers regarding the next elimination be accurate? Based on the Bachelorette spoiler previews for the rest of the spring, it does seem certain that Luke Pell is gone after these hometown dates. The final rose ceremony is right around the corner, and fans cannot wait to see how things are going for JoJo Fletcher and her final guy now. Tune in for ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season as the next episode airs to see if any grand shake-ups come as the families are brought into the mix of things.
