Time to watch things get interesting on The Bachelor 2017 tonight, as Nick Viall is going to do some traveling tonight, as the Hometown Dates on The Bachelor Season 21 take place. It’s crazy to think that he is down to the final four women on The Bachelor and one of these women will be the winner of The Bachelor Season 21! That means the Bachelor Finale is almost here and another season ends. Watch with us tonight during our The Bachelor 2017 Live Recap and see who went home on The Bachelor 2017 tonight!
Last week on The Bachelor Season 21, we saw Nick and the ladies head to the Bahamas. There were three one-on-one dates and a group date, which was the only date with a rose. We saw Vanessa and Rachel have very good one-on-one dates, but then Danielle’s date did not go that great and she was actually sent home during it! Then before the Rose Ceremony, Nick surprised the ladies in their room and talked with Kristina and sent her home also, which left us with Vanessa, Rachel, Corinne and Raven!
The fun begins shortly for Week 8 on The Bachelor 2017, so follow along with our recap below!
WARNING: THE BACHELOR 2017 SPOILERS AHEAD!

We start back at last week and Nick Viall shows up with roses at the hotel. The ladies are nervous, but he said he didn’t want to put Kristina through a Rose Ceremony. He wants them all to go on hometown dates, but they need to agree to it also. Of course, the women all agree and we have our final four folks and now it is time for those hometown dates!
RAVEN’S HOMETOWN DATE
We are headed to Hoxie, Arkansas! She picks Nick up on a four-wheeler to kick things off. They then head to a big grain bin and it is a thought to let all your secrets out into the bin. They climb the steps, but then the cops come! It is awkward and so planned, as the cop is Raven’s brother! From there, they head out to do some four-wheeling in the water! They both get dirty and, of course, Nick loses his shirt and they lay in the water and kiss.
Nick arrives with Raven to her parent’s house and he brought flowers and candy for them. Before anything starts, Raven’s dad tells them that while she was gone, he got a screen and he is cancer free! She then sits down with her dad and they share a special moment alone together. She then talks with her mother and her mother said she is guarded and is worried about her telling Nick that she loves him. Nick talks with her father and asks for his approval if Raven makes it to his final pick. Her dad said he did not expect to like Nick, to be honest. However, he trusts his daughter’s judgement and if this is what she wants, then he approves.
Raven and Nick say their goodbyes and she talks about seeing a future with him and will miss him. However, she wants to say she is falling in love with him, but she could not get those words out and is now paranoid on The Bachelor 2017!
RACHEL’S HOMETOWN DATE
Nick is now headed to Dallas, Texas on The Bachelor 2017! They kick things off by going to church. It is mainly a black congregation and Nick loves experiencing new things. He is welcomed there and they seem to have a really good time. They talk about the race issue and being an interracial couple. Her father is not going to be there because of work obligations, but he will be meeting the rest of her family. That must be a relieve for Nick, huh?
Time to head to the house and meet the family! Rachel said in her family, you don’t need black skin, but you need thick skin. Her older sister is actually married to a white man, so he is not alone here. Nick and Rachel sit down with her older sister and husband and talk about things. Rachel’s sister said this climate has brought racism out and they have to ab aware of how society with be on them. Nick talks with hr mother and they have a good talk and I liked how she asked if there are any red flags with Rachel.
Rachel talks with her mother and they are both such intellectual women. I just love hearing them all speak. Her whole family has it together and Nick should jump on joining this family! Her mother said that Nick reminds her a lot of her father. Rachel said the day was perfect and she got everything she wanted out of the day and more. She said she is falling in love with Nick, but does not tell him on The Bachelor 2017!
CORINNE’S HOMETOWN DATE
Yeah, Nick is on this date just to meet Raquel, her nanny! They are in Miami and they start the day by shopping on The Bachelor 2017! Apparently this is what she does best and does a lot. The staff all know her by first name, but that is because they planned this trip and told them who was coming. Corinne piles up the clothes and fills the dressing room, as Nick tries them all on. He tried on sweatpants that cost $850 and a sweatshirt that costs $650! Yeah, Corinne buys him an outfit and it costs like $3,500, which is insane! Before heading home, they sit down and Corinne said that she is in love with him.
They head to Corinne’s place and meet her mother, father, sister and Raquel, the nanny! Yes, Raquel is nothing like what I imagined. I am sad! They enjoy some homemade olives and Nick looked like he was not enjoying it, but to impress the dad, he said it was the best olive he has ever had. Corinne talk with her dad and said she told Nick that she loved him, which her father is shocked by. Nick talks with Raquel and wants to know his intentions with her.
Corinne’s father is worried about Nick being able to make enough money to keep Corinne happy. Corinne said she is okay with being the breadwinner, but does not think that will be the case. Her father talks with Nick and is drinking it up, so I guess we se where Corinne gets it from! He said if Corinne is okay with it all, then he is fine with it. His dad is loving the scotch and he said he liked Nick more than he thought he would. The date ends with kisses and she feels their love is growing and growing.
VANESSA’S HOMETOWN DATE
Nick heads to Montreal for this date. They start the date with heading to Vanessa’s school, as she is a special education teacher for the adult sector, so her students are all over 21 years old. It is cool to see how she reacts with the students and how emotional they get for seeing her again. They made a scrapbook for Nick, so now it is time for them to make one of their experience on The Bachelor 2017!
Nick gets the approval of her students. Her parents are divorced and they are civil with each other, but not friends. So, Vanessa is giving him the full treatment and will meet her mother’s side of the family first and then her dad’s side.
We head to her mother’s house and it seems like the whole city is there! Her aunt is asking questions and doesn’t think they had a serious talk about the future. Nick talks with her mother and sister and they are intense. Her sister said she is concerned for her and if he hurts her, then she will hurt him! Vanessa talks with her brother and he does not want to see her get hurt again. Vanessa talks with her sister and she is worried about her sister not thinking things through. Vanessa has a life in Montreal and would she give that up? Her mother is concerned that if she pursues this relationship on The Bachelor 2017, will she be happy?
Now we are at Vanessa’s dad’s house and it is just him and his new wife, so a big change from the first stop, huh? Nick gets some alone time with her father and he wants to know what makes Vanessa stand out among the other women. Her father is really concerned about the other women. Nick asks for his blessing and her dad is not giving it! He asks Nick if he asked the other families the same question. This is definitely getting awkward! The father said he wants his daughter to be happy, but does give his blessing in the end.
Vanessa talks with her father and he said that Nick asked for his blessing. Vanessa thinks that is a positive sign, but then she asks her father if he asked Nick about asking the other families and he said yes. This causes Vanessa to worry and think that question was not as meaningful now. She is worried now, as she says goodby to Nick!
We are now heading into the Rose Ceremony and everyone is arriving to the hotel in New York City. Raven is worried that she never got the chance to tell Nick she is falling in love with him. Corinne thinks they went amazingly well, so she thinks she will get a rose. Rachel is worried also and not sure how they feel. While Nick is in his room, Vanessa arrives at the hotel and she said the hometown date left her questioning things and she needs answers. However, Nick gets a knock on the door and he opens it and it is Andi Dorfman!!! What does she want???
I guess we wait until next week to find out…
