Filming for Bachelor 2014 finished back in November 2013, and it's only a few days until Season 18 Hometown Dates are in our face, with Juan Pablo Galavis so close to finishing his aventura on national television. Will he get down on one knee to pop the question to one of his remaining gals? Is he living life happily ever after, like last season's Bachelor Sean Lowe? We'll get to watch it all go down on March 10, but before that can even happen, we have several important episodes.
One of the most intense episodes of any season is the third to last, on which four lucky ladies will take Mr. G back to meet their friends and families on the Hometown Dates. The episode airs on February 24, so if you don't already have that on your calendar, get it together.
Four gals will be left after tonight's Miami episode, on which six ladies get to hang in his own hometown, and this is what's up, according to Reality Steve.
1. Clare Crawley
Clare got the first shot at hometown dates, and we hope she used the opportunity to show him once and for all that she's the girl for him. She'd better, considering she and her fellow competitors are fighting tooth and stiletto to get the valuable time with him. On their Hometown Date in Sacramento, California, RS says they went on a picnic, had some ice cream, and then the hairstylist gave him a trim before introducing JPG to her big family. Which is great, because El Bachelor once did this to his hair, and we’ve been concerned ever since.
2. Nikki Ferrell
Kansas City cutie Nikki has been an intense competitor since day one, and she only stepped it up on Episode 7, when Juan Pablo took the huge step of introducing her to his family — including his five-year-old daughter. The sweet-faced lady works as an RN at at children’s hospital, and will likely keep playing up the "Nurse Nikki" angle JPG loves so much. On their date, Steve says she took him to eat barbeque at Oklahoma Joe's before they met her family. To the left, everyone else.
3. Andi Dorfman
The Buckhead, Georgia girl was named “Most Eligible Bachelorette” by a local Atlanta magazine — and it seems they know exactly what they’re talking about! 26-year-old Andi works as an assistant DA in Fulton County, having graduated from Wake Forest Law School in 2012. She says she’s looking for a guy with confidence, who’s in shape, has a good family, and with whom she can be goofy. Sounds perfecto to us! On their Hometowner, she took him shooting, hung in a park, and then did the whole fam thing. Let's hope her parents are just as intense and focused as she is...
4. Renee Oteri
Single mom Renee may just be a match made in reality TV heaven! Besides being the same age as Juan Pabs (32), she also lives in Florida already (Sarasota to his Miami), has a great job as a real estate agent for her father’s company, and has an 8-year-old son! If they ended up together, he would only have to take a quick jaunt across the state to the west side. Instagram pics of Camila and Ben in the future? We're imagining it and #DyingAlready. On their hometown date, Steve says Renee took JPG to son Ben's little league game before impressing him with her natural beauty and grace while introducing him to the fam. OK, so we added that last part, but we just assume...
