The Bachelor Recap: It's Time for Hometown Dates

Kendall The Bachelor

Add The Bachelor as an interest to stay up to date on the latest The Bachelor news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Families, however, don't know Arie from anything. Reality Steve was able to find out who it is and it turns out that it was Becca K.'s ex that shows up. "She's actually been engaged twice", he shared during a recent episode of The Ringer's Bachelor Party podcast. "She really just keeps things interesting". Kendall has always been a bit of a wild card, from when she asked Arie if he would engage in cannibalism to when she surprised viewers when she empathized and tried to connect with Krystal. I think she had trouble opening up in front of the camera and being herself, so that is why she got that second date in a row. However, Arie assures him that he's not that person anymore, that he's ready for marriage and that he's falling for Tia. Some members of the families embrace the race vehicle driver while others (mainly the fathers of the women) threaten Arie.and some even deny his proposal requests.

Until viewers find out whether Becca survives her hometown date and receives a rose, let's learn more about her.

Arie fields similar questions from Tia's father. Her heartbreak forces him to re-examine his decision.

Her father grills Arie with the same intensity as Jason.

"I feel like I put myself out there, I know this is hard for you, I do", she continues. "If he goes with Tia, it's going to be because he's attracted to her confidence and flare, warmth and fire". (Trust us: This time it might actually be true.) So far, it's pretty obvious Lauren B. has won over Arie in a way we never saw coming-or truthfully, could understand. Arie meets Becca's tight-knit Midwestern family, who seem suspicious of his motives.

Meanwhile, Lauren's father might snap his head off, and Becca's uncle is a pastor so everyone will want to be on their best behavior there. Arie becomes overwhelmed with stress at the family dinner and must leave the table. "Are we wasting time, or is she the real deal to you?"

Museum staff noticed the missing thumb January 8, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation traced it to Rohana five days later. The 24-year-old allegedly touched the left hand of the statue and is said to have broken off a piece, pocketed it and left.

Get ready for Becca fawning all over Arie during her hometown date in Prior Lake, Minnesota. I wanted more than anything to just tell her how I felt.

Through Arie ultimately replies, "yes", his pull towards Lauren B. appears more evident during his visit to Virginia Beach, where he meets her loved ones. In between make-out sessions and tears, Jacqueline tells Arie that she doesn't think she is as confident in her feelings for him as the other girls, and has to go. Her family members are incredibly skeptical, and Arie is very nervous to meet them.

"I need to know if you can get there, if there's a chance you can get engaged", Arie said.

The karmic attraction between Lauren and Arie is astonishing, Biehl says. The two seemed to connect after Arie shared a story about participating in a Goodwill tour of Iraq to visit US troops.

Arie started off the episode with Kendall, who admitted that she "feels herself falling for Arie" - which despite every other woman's profession of being "in love", seemed to be enough for the 36-year-old race vehicle driver. The installment will end with a tense rose ceremony and one woman's elimination. He was clearly conflicted about it. Arie told host Chris Harrison that he had no idea what he was going to do and had to step away from the ceremony to compose himself.

Also, Becca doesn't have any possible negative aspects unlike Kendall with her taxidermy, Lauren with her trust issues, and Tia with her attitude. They embraced and she told Arie to go with his heart. Still, in the vehicle she continued to cry. Sunday night, a very special episode titled The Bachelor: The Women Tell All will feature all the girls returning to dish.

The Bachelor is on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
