Bachelor 2014 Hometown Dates: Renee Oteri Introduces Juan Pablo to Her Son! (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 Sacramento.

It’s in sunny Sarasota when Juan meets up with single mom Renee and her 8-year-old son, Ben. After watching the tearful reunion between mother and child, Juan takes a seat in the bleachers to watch Ben play in his Little League game. As a single parent himself, Juan identifies with Renee’s life with her son, but he wonders whether or not he can picture himself becoming Ben’s stepdad.

Renee’s feelings for Juan continue to grow throughout the date, especially after she introduces him to her parents for the first time. Unfortunately, Renee can’t seem to express herself in an open and honest way, an indecisiveness that threatens to cost her the rose.
