On tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette, it’s the Hometown dates and Andi Dorfman travels around the country to meet the families of Josh Murray, Nick Viall, Chris Soules, and Marcus Grodd. Though Marcus reenacts his aviator striptease from one of the previous episodes, this is his last night on the show as Dorfman sends him home. Marcus even tells Andi that he loves her, but she tells him that she doesn’t feel the same. Marcus leaves crying, wishing he never told her his true feelings for her.
In other sad news from tonight’s episode, Dorfman and the remaining guys are told of contestant Eric Hill’s tragic death. It’s a heartbreaking episode and Andi even breaks down right before the rose ceremony. For more information on beloved Eric Hill:
