Sharleen:
Episode 8
AMANDA’S HOMETOWN
Amanda’s reunion with her kids was a real tearjerker. It’s always fascinating to me to see someone who you’ve only come to know as an individual interact with their kids for the first time. What we saw of Amanda’s time with her kids was really adorable. Her daughter, Charlie, also gave a Direct Look Into Camera for the ages...

I went on a bit of a diatribe about this in my Flare recap, but this date seemed wrong to me. Ben allowing Amanda to introduce her kids to him at a point where he had to have known he wasn’t going to choose her just crosses the line….

… Yeah, yeah, I’m sure “he didn’t know” how he felt yet, but I don’t buy it. Nearly every former lead has said they knew who their final two were within the first couple of weeks, if not sooner. Juan Pablo (rightfully) got criticized for going to Renée’s Hometown and meeting her son Ben (I believe they also played on the beach), only to send her home that week as well. Yet somehow I don’t picture Ben getting the same flak for essentially the same transgression. I don’t know how much of this was producer manipulation (remember, Amanda said she wouldn't introduce a man to her kids unless she was pretty sure about them) and how much of it was Ben legitimately wanting to meet her children, but either way it doesn’t sit well with me.

A commenter on my Flare recap didn't see the big deal about a guy meeting the kids, especially considering their young age. But this isn't real life, and my issues are more with the fact that a) getting to this point kept Amanda from her children even longer than necessary, and b) Amanda said numerous times that she wouldn't introduce a man she was seeing to her kids unless she was pretty sure about them.

It was amusing to watch Ben stay uber-focused on Amanda's mom despite something buzzing near him...

And Amanda shared a conversation with her mom which 100% is what I meant in my Flare recap. So many viewers judge parents who come on this show, as though it takes away from how good a mother they are. (I've noticed this applies less to the male contestants with children.)

LAUREN B’S HOMETOWN
In Portland, Lauren B takes Ben to some food trucks, otherwise known as the best date activity known to man. I relate to Lauren B's love of butter—is there anything better, really?—and loved this moment between them...

I was also fascinated by how all the other folks seemed either completely unaware or disinterested in the filming going on. (The Bachelor is such an infamous show that there are usually hoards of people crowded around and taking photos.) It made me think the cameras had to be far away and zooming in...

Lauren B either speaks in hyperbole or is really that comfortable with Ben...

Lauren B has been a frontrunner this entire season but this Hometown I think really cemented her as everyone's prediction for Ben's final pick. I believe in showing—not telling—as talk can be cheap. And while on every other Hometown he told some family member, "I really care about your daughter", he showed how much he values Lauren B in this moment...

There was some commentary from Lauren B about the importance of her family's approval that came from an ITM I'm sure is a Pick-Up...

Generic top, check. Hair and makeup completely different than this date, check.

CAILA'S HOMETOWN
Caila's Hometown activity was truly COOL. It was like a mix between an elaborate (and therefore typical) Bachelor date and an episode of How It's Made. Plus, they built a toy house, so this being The Bachelor, relationship metaphors about building a house together were aplenty...

At dinner, Caila's dad Chris, unfazed by the cameras or Ben's dashing good looks, immediately goes for the jugular with...

I know Caila wasn't thrilled with this question, but it won me over immediately. I love that her dad asked a question that we would all ask, or at least want to ask. How could you not want to know?? For example, I know my "fame" was never as "microwaved" as Ben's, but one of my most-asked questions is what it's like to go from anonymity to suddenly getting recognized several times a day. And frankly, I understand that question. Had I met a reality TV person before going on the show, I would have wanted to ask the same thing. It's a valid question, and despite Caila's protests, a fantastic getting-to-know-you topic. It's a shame they didn't show more of Ben's answer (if there was more), because that would have been an authentic conversation that Ben—as The Bachelor—might actually have with the parents of the girl he was dating.

I found Caila's sit-down with her father also very interesting...

Her father's reticence and his efforts to bring Caila back to reality fascinate me. This exchange exemplifies why I love Hometown dates. We've gotten to know Caila over 8 weeks and we've begun to see her "fall" for Ben right on schedule.

But seeing her so emotional and convinced that Ben is "it"—across from her pragmatic and reasonably skeptical father WHO RAISED HER—is hugely telling as to how this pressure cooker can affect its contestants. This isn't just any chat. This is her father. My point is, Caila, no matter how dramatic or idealistic or susceptible to falling for men she may be in real life, can't have fallen too far from the tree—at least half the tree being an evidently practical person. There's something about Caila here that, while I don't know her personally, doesn't seem like who she really is, if that makes sense. It's her after 7 or so weeks of the Bachelor filming process. Someone tweeted at me that Caila seemed crazy on this Hometown. I responded that if you're not somewhat crazy at this point in filming, you're superhuman.

JOJO'S HOMETOWN
Wow, talk about contrived. Remember, at this point, Jojo would have been "off the grid" (no phone, internet, or any other communication with the outside world) for about 7 weeks. I have a very hard time believing that Jojo's ex just so happened to know when and where to leave two dozen fresh roses and a love letter on her doorstep without the producers' assistance.

Her anger is clearly immediately directed at production but is half-assedly edited to make it seem directed at her ex...

... and as usual, being the Voice Of Reason she is:

ah, to be a pawn again.

Then, after she's conveniently given a producer's phone to call Chad on camera—and Ben arrives so they can hash it all out—Jojo's optimism tells us all which direction this Hometown is headed...foreshadowing.

We knew something would be off about Jojo's Hometown; regardless of the order in which the Hometowns are filmed, traditionally the last Hometown shown has some sort of drama in it. Last season, Jade revealed she'd posed for Playboy and showed Chris the photos. In Sean's season, Desiree's brother embraced the role of overprotective sibling with gusto. Jojo's brothers were all too happy to carry that torch, which is rich considering Ben, the younger brother, had to lead on his own harem of women a mere 3 years ago.

Jojo's mother was the shining star of this Hometown, from her encouraging mother-daughter chat...

to her straight-from-the-bottle stress management...

ROSE CEREMONY
I'm very tight on time so I have to skim over the Rose Ceremony a bit. The only really notable thing to happen is Amanda said:
"I just feel like, if you were having any doubts after my Hometown date, it would have been nice if you would've let me know then, rather than, you know, send me back to LA just to send me home at a Rose Ceremony."

We discussed this in the comments section last week. It's not dissimilar to Becca not wanting to be "blindsided". (Yes, the definition of "blindside" was brought up.) I'll copy and paste what I wrote...

"Rose Ceremonies are a LOT more painful to stand through than it appears on TV and there's a humiliation factor there. For example, even though I wasn't ever really "sure" about Juan Pablo, the thought of being eliminated at a Rose Ceremony was still terrifying. It's not so much the rejection but rather the hugely drawn-out embarrassment of it all—especially with all the buildup (ITMs, Girl Chats, dressing to the nines...) leading up to them. That's what I suspect was Becca's fear. Again, she spent the whole episode feeling anxious and like she wasn't receiving any validation, so she must have already had a bad feeling about things. But I think she would have rather he sent her home during a thoughtful conversation rather than through the impersonal and rather degrading Rose Ceremony process."

A lot of people have said that since Amanda's Hometown was in Orange County, it was silly for her to whine about going to LA for a Rose Ceremony. I agree that it's not far, but it's not about the distance. The sheer logistics of getting to a Rose Ceremony when you've been in a hotel in your hometown aside, Amanda probably just would have wanted to get back to her children and her real life even a few days sooner. Remember, when you're filming, you're still off the grid, no matter how close in proximity you are to your family.

Chris Harrison Blogs 'The Bachelor' Episode 9
To say that what happened on this week’s episode of The Bachelor was dramatic would be a terrible understatement. Over the years, I think many Bachelors and Bachelorettes have fallen in love with two (and maybe even more) people. I think it’s very possible and I think it’s part of the journey and part of the magic that is The Bachelor. But for the first time ever, a Bachelor told two different women that he loved them.
I know Ben pretty well and I know he meant everything he said — but man has he put himself, and the women, in a very, very tough position.

It was a magical day for Ben and Lauren as they helped dozens and dozens of sea turtles find their way into the water for a better chance at life. Conservation efforts are really important to all of us at The Bachelor, and Ben and Lauren were great ambassadors on this day, helping the sea turtle population in the Caribbean flourish. Our entire crew had to be incredibly careful that day and all took many precautions to make sure nothing we did interfere with the march of the turtles into the sea. Everyone was truly emotional about the turtles but Lauren and Ben were further focused on each other. A double rainbow (REALLY!) over the water that day really made this beautiful day even more perfect.

That night, in the fantasy suite at Sandals in Ocho Rios, Lauren finally confessed what she had been feeling for a while and what she failed to tell him at the end of her hometown date… that she loved him. And at that moment Ben told her that he loved her too. It’s a thing I can’t remember ever seeing on our show, a Bachelor telling someone that he was in love that early, and to hear the “I love you” given and returned was something I wasn’t sure I’d ever see on The Bachelor.

And just when I thought things couldn’t get any stranger, they absolutely did. JoJo and Ben took an incredible helicopter ride over Jamaica, and let me tell you those views on TV are spectacular but they’re even more incredible in person. When they landed at YS Falls, JoJo had no idea that something that breathtaking even existed. JoJo too was aware of the reality of Ben and knew that letting herself fall for a man who was still seeing others was risky. But she put her heart ahead of her head and surprised Ben by telling him that she was in love with him also. And to everyone’s surprise, Ben told JoJo he loved her too.

I can’t imagine any romantic situation more complicated than this. Of course, before Ben has to make any ultimate decisions, he still has another week of dates to go, but he also realized that since he had not fully fallen in love with Caila, he would have to say goodbye to her next.

Now, Ben is in a real pickle. He is going to introduce two women he loves to his parents. He is going to go on final dates with two women who know he loves them back. Houston, we have a problem. That is going to be the most dramatic season finale in history!

But for the first time ever, a Bachelor told two different women that he loved them.
Ну вот зачем он признался обеим в любви? А потом он в финале выберет одну, так как на обеих сразу жениться не получится, и разобьёт второй сердце. Ещё и сам будет после этого страдать. Лучше всего, не выбирать в финале никого, а проверить свою любовь к обеим девушкам временем. Дотянуть с окончательным выбором до последнего пост-шоу, и выбрать в прямом эфире ту из девушек, которая и через несколько месяцев захочет быть с Беном. Возможно, одной из них надоест, и она сама отстанет. А если никто не отстанет, то так даже интереснее - нужно будет запустить этот любовный треугольник в Парадайз - и участникам будет хорошо, и поклонницам Бена продолжение романтического блокбастера.

The Bachelor's Ben Higgins Blogs About 'I Love You' Shocker and Painful Goodbye: 'I Hated Myself for Hurting Her'

So there you have it.
I am in love with two women. Two very different, but equally remarkable, women. Believe me, I am just as surprised as you all are and was even more so when it was all starting to happen. Especially considering that going into this, I still had a fear that I may be unlovable, and now here I am with not just one woman that I can see a real and wonderful future with, but TWO. I'm still not sure how it happened but it did.

I think my biggest fear with people seeing this this week and hearing me express that I am in love with both JoJo and Lauren is that it will make everyone feel like it's not real love. Or that I don't comprehend what love is because I am feeling it for two women at once. But I really do. I gave this more thought than you can possibly imagine. I feel like as I watched it back this week, it looked like it came so easy for me to let those words slip out, but I can't tell you the hours of anguish and sleepless nights I faced as I wrestled with those feelings and came to realize that I was truly in love with both JoJo and Lauren. I really searched my soul and prayed and tried to figure out how this was possible. But at the end of the day, I could not deny my feelings for each one of these women. I came into this journey telling myself that I needed to trust myself and not shy away from any and all feelings I experienced. For better or for worse. And so after all of that prayer and soul searching and tossing and turning in bed, I just had to accept it and see where it led me.

But before we get into all of that, I guess we should start at the beginning. And that is how gorgeous Jamaica really is. When I think of Jamaica I definitely think of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, and the beaches. I think when we got there I was really expecting it to be almost exactly like the Bahamas. But what I didn't realize was how beautiful and green Jamaica is too! Jungles and forests that lead right up to the beach. Rivers upon rivers and waterfalls everywhere. And then you have the beaches too, just like you expect. Just so much prettier and more diverse than I thought it would be.
