Bachelor 2014 Hometown Dates: Juan Pablo Can’t Keep His Hands Off Clare Crawley (PHOTOS)

After an emotional episode that culminated with Sharleen Joynt eliminating herself, Juan Pablo Galavis is finally ready to get serious with his four remaining contestants. When The Bachelor returns next week for an explosive two-night event, Juan will visit Nikki Ferrell in Missouri, Andi Dorfman in Atlanta, Renee Oteri in Florida, and Clare Crawley in California.

It’s in sunny Sacramento where Juan reunites with Clare for a romantic day at the park. The duo can’t seem to keep their hands off each other as they feed the geese and sip on sparkling apple cider. In a rare and intimate moment of vulnerability, the 32-year-old bachelorette shares heartbreaking memories of her father.

Later, Clare takes the opportunity to show Juan her skills as she gives him a touch-up at her hair salon. Everything seems to be going smoothly... until Juan meets Clare’s family, that is. When one of them drops a bombshell that no one could have expected, it threatens to destroy any chance of a happy ending for the couple.
