The Bachelor Season 18 Episode 9 airs Tuesday, February 26 at 8 pm EST on ABC. Tonight the final three women travel to St.Lucia for the overnight dates and something very dramatic happened.
"The exotic dates episode is probably the most pivotal we've had this season. It's a shakeup of the foundation of everything going on. It's usually the bachelor figuring things out, but this season it has been the ladies questioning and figuring and that will continue through the overnight dates. There are some ugly cries and emotional moments ahead. The people left are 100 percent into this and there's a lot on the line. " Chris Harrison told People about tonight's episode.
Last night episode featured the hometown visits of the remaining four women- Nikki, Clare, Renee and Andi. Juan Pablo first visited Nikki's family in Kansas City, Missouri which he had a good time with them. But Nikki seems can't tell him how she exactly felt about him.
Then the bachelor went to Andi's hometown Atlanta, Georgia. Andi's dad is not too happy about it took getting down to eight women before his daughter got a one-one-one date. Her sister also questioned her love for Juan Pablo.
Renne shares a wonderful reunion with her son and Juan Pablo, but she struggles to find the words to describe her feelings for him. Finally Juan Pablo made his final hometown visit to Sacramento to meet Clare's family, her two sisters got different opinions about Juan Pablo, while Clare's mom tells the bachelor that she would be happy to have him in their family.
Flying back to Miami, Juan Pablo must decide whom he would send home. It is a hard decision, the nice single mom Renee is eliminated at last.
"Letting Renee go was very difficult. I almost sent Andi home, but I went with the stronger connection instead of who I thought had more feelings for me." Juan Pablo wrote on his blog.
