On last week’s episode of The Bachelor, Bachelor Nation’s prayers were answered when star Arie Luyendyk sent home Krystal Nielson, who was designated as this season’s villain. After her departure from the show, Luyendyk dished on his reasons for eliminating her, writing in his People blog that, “When it comes down to it, I just knew I’d never be able to really trust Krystal again. There were too many red flags at this point and, though I tried, I could not get over her meltdown in Fort Lauderdale. I wanted to give myself a chance to get over that incident and see if we could recover, but none of her apologies were able to repair what was broken. Though I once had very strong feelings for her, those feelings were now gone … Ultimately, I had to remember why I came on the show in the first place. I was here to find a wife, not a drama queen.” So, it’s safe to say that Nielson is out of the picture. Now, before we get into all the spoilers on what to expect for tonight’s season 22 episode, this is your spoiler warning. If you do NOT want to know any major spoilers, STOP READING NOW.
ABC network’s official episode description of tonight’s show reads, “The pressure mounts as the crucial hometown dates loom, but first Arie and the remaining seven bachelorettes travel to beautiful Tuscany, Italy. High anxiety permeates the group when the women find out there will not be any rose ceremony this week. Becca K. gets the first one-on-one date and a romantic picnic where the couple will discover if they can rekindle their passionate connection. Meanwhile, an emotionally confused Jacqueline takes a big step and visits a surprised Arie in his hotel room. Arie and Lauren B. explore the charming town of Lucca, but she needs to convince her suitor that she is ready to take the next step in their relationship: a hometown date. Seinne and Arie go hunting for truffles, but Arie is searching for clarity when it comes to this beautiful, smart and charming woman, and how she might fit into his life. Finally, Kendall, Tia and Bekah M. battle for the final rose of the week, and Arie is left to wonder if he made the right decision as four women prepare to take him home to meet their families.”
