The stakes are high as Ben crisscrosses the country on an exciting, emotionally charged journey to visit the final four women’s hometowns. Ben travels to Orange County, CA to meet Amanda, the single mother with two adorable little girls, but her concerned parents wonder if he is ready to be an immediate full-time dad. Lauren B. shows Ben around her hometown of Portland, OR, but he must face serious questions from her sister. Caila shares some places with Ben that she holds near and dear to her in Hudson, OH; however, her father subjects the Bachelor to a grilling to see if he is worthy of his daughter. Finally, Ben is off to Dallas to meet Jo Jo, only to find her in tears as an unexpected surprise threatens to derail their romance. Ben must make a gut-wrenching decision to narrow the field to three women. Will one of them be his wife?
Amanda introduces Ben to her two daughters at the beach, and he attempts to win them over. However, the bachelorette’s parents question whether he is ready to take on the responsibilities of being a full-time dad and loving husband. Is this ready-made family too much too soon for the Bachelor?
Lauren B. share a wonderful, fun-filled afternoon of sightseeing, visiting local food trucks and grabbing a drink at a genuine whiskey museum. Later on, Ben gets emotional as he is confronted with serious questions from her sister. She is worried about how deep his feelings can be when there are still three other women in the picture.

Caila shows Ben her high school and her father’s toy factory – two places that are important to her. Her father only wants what’s best for her and cross examines Ben. Will this interrogation give the Bachelor second thoughts about their future as a couple?
The biggest shocker awaits Ben in Dallas when he arrives to see Jo Jo. An ex-boyfriend suddenly appears, trying to get back in her good graces.
