On tonight’s episode of The Bachelor, Ben Higgins takes the remaining six women back to his hometown of Warsaw, Indiana. We see his family, where he went to high school, and we get to experience some solo dates with Higgins. This is the episode before the girls’ hometown dates, so it is very important for Higgins to figure out who gets eliminated. Tonight, we say goodbye to two favorites this season, so if you don’t want to know any spoilers, you have come to the wrong place.
