Week 7 of The Bachelor kicks off with Ben Higgins bringing the remaining six women to his hometown of Warsaw, IN. The remaining contestants, Amanda, Becca, JoJo, Lauren B., Emily, and Caila, are gearing up for next week’s final four hometown dates. This week, the only rose being given out prior to the rose ceremony is during the group date.

Ben starts off the week by taking Lauren B. on a special one-on-one date that begins with a drive around his hometown and leads to the youth center that Ben volunteered at as a teenager. The couple is then joined by the Indiana Pacers to make this day even more memorable for the kids. To wrap up the day, Lauren B. and Ben have to clear up the drama from last week before heading to a local dive bar.

Then, it’s time for a one-on-one with JoJo in Chicago consisting of a once in a lifetime date at legendary Wrigley Field. The couple gets their own set of custom jerseys with Mr. Higgins and Mrs. Higgins on the back!! They find themselves with the whole stadium to themselves and are able to play ball and explore the stadium, including the infamous scoreboard. The night ends with Ben and JoJo chatting over a meal in the middle of the field.

Next, a high stakes group date pits three women against one another, with the rose winner automatically getting a hometown date. Amanda, Becca and Caila spend the day flying kites and rowing boats with Ben. Ben awards the group date rose to Amanda who ends up officially being the first girl going to hometowns. Amanda and Ben finish off the day on a “one-on-one” date, while Becca and Caila return to the hotel.

Finally, Emily gets a huge surprise when her one-on-one date with Ben includes a visit to meet his parents. After spending time with his parents, Ben comes to the realization that he doesn’t see a future with Emily and sends her home before the rose ceremony.

Ben comes into the Rose Ceremony unsure of which woman he is going to send home. During the Rose Ceremony, emotions are high for each of the women. Lauren B. is given the first rose, closely followed by JoJo. Caila is given the final rose and Becca is the final woman to be sent home this week.

Week 8 Predictions:

Based on seeing Ben interact with the four remaining girls this week as well as the previews for next week, CelebSecrets4U predicts that Amanda will be the next woman to go home. We think that once Ben meets her children, as well as her parents, it will give Ben a lot more clarity. This will make the final three JoJo, Lauren B. and Caila.
