ABC’s ‘Bachelor’ 2018 Spoilers: Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s Final Hometown Date Recipient Revealed By ‘Reality Steve’

Arie Luyendyk Jr. has been filming Season 22 of ABC’s The Bachelor since the middle of September, and recent spoilers detail that he is in the midst of filming his hometown dates at this point. Gossip guru Reality Steve has been sharing spoilers as he uncovers them, and he just revealed a detail that had been missing for a bit. What is the latest he has shared about the upcoming 2018 season?

As was previously reported by the Inquisitr, Arie Luyendyk Jr. has whittled his bachelorettes down to the final four, and it is time for him to meet their families. He has spent quality time with Tia Booth, Lauren Burnham, and Becca Kufrin, but Reality Steve’s Bachelor spoilers initially left out the name of the fourth gal remaining.

It turns out that there was a good reason Reality Steve needed some additional time to pin down this last hometown date of Arie’s. In his latest batch of Bachelor spoilers, he explained that the bachelorette involved was someone he had previously believed had been eliminated earlier during filming.

While Reality Steve has not detailed when or why he thought this contender was already home, he says that he has now confirmed that California gal Kendall Long is the last lady to introduce Luyendyk to her family. His Bachelor spoilers also note that Long may be a bachelorette who never got a one-on-one date with Arie during the earlier part of the season.

However, Reality Steve’s spoilers do add that there are a couple of Arie’s outings that he has not pinned down yet, so it is possible that Kendall did go on one of those. If Long didn’t get an individual date with Luyendyk before hometowns, that would be highly unusual within this franchise.

Bachelor fans know that Season 22 is slated to debut in early January, and now TV Guide confirms that the premiere will air on ABC on January 1. There is still plenty of action to film before Luyendyk’s final rose ceremony, and so far, Reality Steve’s spoilers have not pinpointed a specific frontrunner. Will Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s journey to find love as ABC’s The Bachelor 2018 lead bring him lasting love? Fans hope so, and they cannot wait to see his journey play out this winter.
