For some reason, the rose ceremony at the end of hometown dates always seems the most heartbreaking elimination on The Bachelor. Let’s see: You go meet a girl’s folks, hang around in her old stomping grounds, learn about her roots, and then — BAM — dunzo. It’s like the Bachelor is not only rejecting the contestant, but also her ENTIRE FAMILY. So, who got the brutal hammer after her hometown date with Sean Lowe?

Sadly, hometown dates were the end of the line for Desiree Hartsock, the dress designer from Newport Beach, CA. According to Reality Steve, Desiree is eliminated in Episode 8.That leaves Lindsay Yenter, AshLee Frazier, and Catherine Giudici as Sean’s final three girls. After hometown visits, Sean and his final three headed to Thailand for fantasy suites and the final two eliminations.
