But unlike with Lauren earlier where I knew everything was fine by the end of the daytime date, I still needed to have a serious discussion with JoJo. As much as I felt I could be myself with her, I knew there was still something holding her back from truly letting go. I'd been feeling that for a while now and at this point, I was actually starting to get a little frustrated because I didn't know what else I could possibly do to make her feel safe enough to do that with me. That scared me that by the end of this, if I fell in love with her and wanted to get down on one knee, she might still not be ready. For a guy with an insecurity about being unlovable, that's a pretty big deal.
Hearing her tell me not to worry and that she was still on my side and still trying to let those walls come down really did help me. I won't say it removed every bit of the insecurities that I had, but I know what I kind and honest heart JoJo has and I trusted her. All I could do was believe what she was saying is true and hope that maybe very soon her feelings would catch up with mine.

Waking up the next day I was more worried about this three-on-one date than I had been the two-on-one date last week. By far. Last week I knew I was going to have to send someone home at the end of the day, and, as hard a decision as that was, I was prepared for it. I went into this date honestly wanting to meet the families of each one of these women. I knew that tensions were high after the past week in the Bahamas, and the pressure had only increased since we arrived in Indiana.

From the second we sat down in the barn, you could cut the tension with a knife. Normally I would want to have some activity to lighten the mood but the boats just showed me that nothing was going to help today and I just needed to get to it.

To be honest, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to give Caila the rose that day. Mostly because while I was still extremely interested in her, I knew I needed more time with Becca and Amanda, and I had just had a one-on-one with Caila last week. So it came down to Becca and Amanda. I hadn't had a one-on-one with Becca since Las Vegas, and I knew that she needed some validation in a bad way after our talk. But Amanda being a mom and knowing the depth of what a hometown date meant to her was not lost on me.
I really wasn't sure what I was going to do going into the date but after talking to all three women, I really felt like I needed Amanda to know I was ready to meet her children. I felt that if I was really going to be able to see if Amanda and I had a future, I needed to see her as a mom. I don't really feel like I could accurately know who Amanda really is without that. And on top of that, I just really liked her.
The rest of the date with her just confirmed that I had made the right decision. She had such a joy doing something as simple as handing out food at McDonald's and all I could think about during the carnival was how fun that would be with her daughters there.

I could not wait for next week.

What was really tough was watching this back and seeing how hard it was on Becca. I have such respect for Becca and I care about her so much that knowing I hurt her and was putting her through that was really tough. Sometimes watching this back I just cringe because it hurts seeing the hurt I cause women that I truly care about. This was definitely one of those times.

The next day with Emily is something I really needed. I had been so impressed with how far she had come just as a woman in the past few weeks, but I would be lying if I said I didn't have questions about whether or not she could really be my wife. Sometimes it can be hard balancing my admiration and appreciation for someone as a person with whether or not we are actually a match, and that is where I was with Emily.
Obviously, there is no one whose opinions I respect more than my parents, and I knew that if anyone could give me perspective and help me make that decision, it was them. Besides, I had already been to Emily's home and met her mom, it seemed only fair that she got to see my home and meet my parents too.

Talking to my parents as the day went, I knew what I had to do. I could tell that as I was talking to my mom and dad I was really not only trying to convince them of how great Emily was, I was also trying to convince myself. Not that I don't think she is amazing, but I was trying to convince myself that I really could see myself with her long term. I knew what I had to do.
The hardest part of that was the boat ride back to the girls' house. It was not far but it felt like forever to me because I knew I was about to let go of a really wonderful woman. And as she realized we were headed back to the house and not on to the next part of the date, it got really, really awkward.
But if Emily's reaction while we were breaking up wasn't a sign of the maturity that people don't often give her credit for, I don't know what will. I was so impressed and as much easier as that made it for me, it also made it harder because she was showing the maturity that I was questioning that she had with my parents. Life decisions can be hard sometimes.

After that, I knew I had a rose ceremony and I seriously had no idea what I was going to do. I could only visit four hometowns, and I had five amazing women before me. How was I supposed to send any one of these women home?!

But Chris Harrison really brought it all back around to me. I really needed to be honest with myself about whether or not I could really see myself marrying each one of these women. When I did that, I knew that I had to say goodbye to Becca.

Unfortunately, I also knew that by doing that I was doing to her the one thing I had told her I wouldn't do. It was going to come out of nowhere. So when she pulled her hand away from me and I saw the anger mixed with pain in her eyes, I completely understood. I hated doing that to her but I really didn't know any other way.
Becca is seriously one of the most wonderful women I have ever met. There is nothing she doesn't have. Nothing. Even I couldn't believe was saying goodbye to her. But I know she is going to be fine because I'm not sure I have met a more well-rounded, impressive woman.

But as difficult as that was, even that didn't prepare me for the goodbye I had to say next week after hometowns. There is no doubt in my mind that that is the hardest goodbye I said this entire time aside from the last one. But even before we get there, you are about to see a hometown week unlike anything you've ever seen before. And I can promise you I was far from ready for what was about to happen. There were definitely times where it was just as I hoped, and meeting these women's family was far beyond my expectations … but what happens on one hometown in particular changed everything.

So get ready Bachelor Nation, because when protective families get involved, things get real really fast. See you next week!

Sharleen Joynt on The Bachelor: Episode 7

I had the pleasure of watching last night’s episode with alums Ashley I. and Michael G. We were laughing over how I can’t really call them just “Ashley” or “Michael”—their last name initials are now synonymous with their television personas, and seeing as how I got to “know” them on television first, you can’t shake that. It also means that all those Laurens this season had better get used to it.

For the last several seasons, Week 7 has been used to bring the girls to the Bachelor’s hometown, and this week was no exception. It’s a very telling week as there’s often a date that involves either showing a girl around the town in which the lead grew up and/or meeting friends and parents, both pretty personal things. It’s very rare that the recipient of a one-on-one date in Week 7 doesn’t make it to Hometowns, and as such, I have a strong suspicion everyone (except Emily) knew that Emily’s date was a bit of a throwaway and that she would not be sticking around. I really like Emily—she’s endearing, can make fun of herself, and seems to really get along with the other women (a good sign)—but never for one second did I think she and Ben stood chance as a functioning, romantic couple.

Her date felt stilted and stunt-like, taking her straight to the house in which Ben grew up and meeting his parents when she hadn’t even had a real one-on-one date yet. I am aware that a mere fraction of the conversations shared ever get aired, but what meaningful conversations have we seen between these two that didn’t involve Emily selling herself as a stronger contender over either Haley or Olivia, or that didn’t involve her dislike of Olivia and, um, vegetables?

Becca had full right to be upset with Ben when she left. She implored, “Just don’t blindside me,” only to get blindsided the very next day. Of course, we know he has a team of skilled people orchestrating his every move and it’s their job to make sure he blindsides women. Tears make great TV, and so do angry women.

We’re down to 4, so my predictions are as follows…

1. Jojo, 24: It’s a toss-up between Lauren B. and Jojo for the top spot this week. I feel Jojo represents the everywoman; I relate to Jojo and her fears, and I suspect most women watching do, too. This episode, so much emphasis was placed on how afraid Jojo is to be vulnerable and to let herself “fall,” as if those are hindrances to her chances at “finding love.” I for one love that she has those fears and keeps them at the forefront. When there are still 6 women remaining, she should be apprehensive. However, Ben’s insistence that she drop those walls and his near-threat (“When you’re scared, sometimes it pulls me away, too.”) made me feel like Jojo could really stick around. Ben is too considerate and careful to say those things if he wasn’t invested enough to back them up.

2. Lauren B., 25: Contrary to Jojo, Lauren B. is very confident in her place with Ben. With this many women still remaining, this could be seen as a negative, but considering how reasonable and non-dramatic she is in every other way, it in fact carries more weight. In other words, Lauren B. is not the type to be confident if she doesn’t have reason to be confident. She got the major frontrunner date in Ben’s hometown; he paraded her through his town and she hung out with him and his friends at his favorite dive bar (not dissimilar to Whitney’s date with Chris in Des Moines last season). What can I say? Lauren B isn’t going anywhere.

3. Caila, 24: We didn’t see a lot of development between Caila and Ben this week, but while I still can’t see Caila getting engaged at the end of this, these two definitely have chemistry. A lot of it. More than enough to make it to Fantasy Suites. (I have to laugh even writing that. How funny is it that the concept of “Fantasy Suites” has become socially acceptable enough for me to just write that? Oh man. This show.)

Going home next week…

4. Amanda, 25: I was certain Jojo, Lauren B., and Caila would be receiving Hometown dates. But the fact that I legitimately didn’t know whether it would be Amanda or Becca getting that fourth spot puts Amanda in my “most likely to go home” slot. First, Amanda’s relationship with Ben just seems behind those between him and the other three ladies. Yes, they had an adorable one-on-one at McDonald’s and on rides at the fair. However, when I see Ben and Amanda together, I see a lot of compatibility and mutual respect, sure, but I just don’t buy their chemistry. Again, as I said two weeks ago, their attraction is more about two very sweet, good-looking people being in the same place and the same time, and less about some magical je-ne-sais-quoi.

“Episode 2008"
The stakes are high as Ben crisscrosses the country on an exciting, emotionally charged journey to visit the final four women’s hometowns. Ben travels to Orange County, CA to meet Amanda, the single mother with two adorable little girls. Amanda introduces Ben to her two daughters at the beach, and he attempts to win them over.

However, the bachelorette’s parents question whether he is ready to take on the responsibilities of being a full-time dad and loving husband. Is this ready-made family too much too soon for the Bachelor?

Caila shares some places with Ben that she holds near and dear to her in Hudson, OH; however, her father subjects the Bachelor to a grilling to see if he is worthy of his daughter.
Caila shows Ben her high school and her father’s toy factory – two places that are important to her. Her father only wants what’s best for her and cross examines Ben. Will this interrogation give the Bachelor second thoughts about their future as a couple?
