AceShowbiz - Season 14 of "The Bachelorette" is about to wrap up since it's finally time for hometown dates. In the Monday, July 16 episode of the NBC dating show, Becca Kufrin was set to meet the families of her final four suitors, Garrett, Jason, Blake and Colton.
Becca first headed to Garret's hometown in Manteca, where she met his parents, grandmother, sister and brother. Garrett invited Becca to a fun farming date as they planted some tomatoes. During the date, they talked about kids, and that made Becca realize that she and Garrett were on the same page when it came to their future.
Bringing Becca to his home was a big deal for Garrett and his family since the last girl he brought home was his ex-wife. That explained why Garrett's family looked hesitant at first before finally welcoming Becca. Becca talked about whether or not Garrett was ready for another relationship following his split, and his dad advised her to just be honest with her feelings. Meanwhile, his mom believed that Becca and Garrett might make each other happy.
The next destination for hometown dates was Buffalo, Jason's hometown. Jason and Becca enjoyed various things during their date, including wing eating competition and ice skating. When they met Jason's family, his dad urged Jason to be careful with his heart as he fell hard for Becca.
Jason's mom, meanwhile, grilled Becca about whether or not she's ready to be engaged after her split from Arie Luyendyk Jr. While it went well, it seemed like Jason's mom wasn't fully convinced about Becca's heart.
Blake's hometown date came next. Becca met his mom, stepdad and dad in Bailey. Becca and Blake went to his high school, where they played and had fun. Things took a serious turn when he told Becca that he was a senior when a shooting accident happened in his school.
As for his family, his mom noticed that Blake seemed happier after meeting Becca. However, Blake's dad didn't want his son to get hurt, warning him to be careful with his heart as he might get hurt at the end of the show.
The last destination for the hometown date was Parker, where Becca met Colton's big family. Colton had arranged a special visit to the Children's Hospital of Colorado. During the meeting with his family, the topic of Colton's allegedly brief relationship with Tia Booth was brought up. Becca convinced his family that anything between Colton and her best friend was over. At the end, Colton confessed his feeling to Becca, telling her that he's in love with her.
Becca was confused, so she decided to bring some of "The Bachelor" girls, including Tia, for some advice. Tia pulled Becca aside to talk about Colton again. She told Becca that she still had feelings for him, and that made Becca feel she's being blindsided.
Following the frustating confession, it was time for the rose ceremony. Blake received the first rose. Later, Becca gave the last two roses to Jason and Garrett. It meant that Colton was eliminated. Viewers might assume it was because of Tia's earlier confession interview, but Becca made it clear in a confessional that what Tia said didn't affect her decision.
