The first week of February was a grueling one for The Bachelor Season 17 contestants, enduring both goat milking and, in Tierra LiCausi’s case, hypothermia. In Episode 5, Sean Lowe bid adieu to Robyn Howard and Jackie Parr. Then, to add insult to injury in Episode 6, Sarah Herron left during the cocktail party. We could barely get over our shock by the time Sean eliminated both Selma Alameri (HOW COULD HE) and Daniella McBride (SOMEONE GET HER ON BACHELOR PAD RIGHT NOW).

For better or for worse, the epic drama continues next week. On Monday, February 11, 2013, Sean and his remaining six ladies head to the magical island of St. Croix — the last stop before the hometown dates! We can’t believe we are just two episodes away from Sean’s final four.

So, who doesn’t take Sean home to meet their parents? Sean finally wises up and sees the devil inside Tierra, sending her home after yet another emotional meltdown. We can only imagine the celebration upon her exit. However, we’re not so thrilled about the other girl sent packing: Lesley Murphy. 

Here are the final four girls who take Sean home to meet their parents:
Desiree Hartsock
Catherine Giudici
AshLee Frazier
Lindsay Yenter
