COLTON JOINS THE FOUR REMAINING BACHELORETTES IN THEIR HOMETOWNS, ONLY TO HAVE THEIR FAMILIES QUESTION HIS INTENTIONS
ON ABC’S ‘THE BACHELOR,’ MONDAY, FEB. 25
“2308” – Colton made it through an extremely challenging week, questioning which women were really ready for commitment. In the end, he found four amazing bachelorettes he cares about who have his confidence: Caelynn, Cassie, Hannah G. and Tayshia. A visit to Caelynn’s hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, turns emotional as her protective family needs convincing that Colton is serious about his desire to be married. The Bachelor’s next stop is Birmingham, Alabama, where Hannah G. attempts to shape him into a true Southern gentleman. Will it be enough to persuade her concerned parents that he is sincere? Tayshia tests Colton’s trust in her, challenging him to go skydiving near her hometown of Santa Ana, California. But the couple’s terrifying jump is nothing compared to the reaction of her skeptical father. Cassie’s hometown of Huntington Beach, California, is Colton’s last stop, but will her parents be able to help her sort out her feelings or just confuse her more? One woman will suffer a devastating exit, as the other three bachelorettes look forward to the highly anticipated Fantasy Suites. But in another shocking turn, Colton leaves the room with Chris Harrison for a conversation that could change everything on “The Bachelor,” MONDAY, FEB. 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Caelynn takes Colton on a wonderful, old-fashioned carriage ride through historic Fredericksburg, Virginia, and then he is treated to a family “fry party” under the watchful eye of her vigilant stepfather. Will Colton get his blessing to marry Caelynn if she is his chosen soulmate? At the end of the moving evening, the pageant beauty declares her feelings for Colton, but will both of them be on the same emotional page?
Hannah G., who has been a frontrunner from the start, welcomes Colton to her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. The Bachelor gets a few valuable tips from an etiquette teacher on how to be a proper Southern gentleman before visiting Hannah’s parents. Will it be enough to persuade her concerned parents that he is sincere?
Tayshia pulls a total surprise on Colton, blindfolding him and driving him to a mystery location. Much to his amazement, he discovers he is going skydiving! The couple is petrified as they prepare to jump for the first time but lean on each other for the courage to see the challenge through. But this real leap is followed by a symbolic one as they share their feelings. An even more difficult hurdle lies ahead with Tayshia’s dad, who is concerned about his daughter’s arduous marital past. Will the dubious father lend his support for the Bachelor’s possible proposal?
One final stop remains as Cassie meets Colton in Huntington Beach, California. She hasn’t yet shared her feelings with him but is hoping her family can help provide her with some clarity about her emotional state. But instead, their warnings stress her out, which makes communicating with Colton that much more problematic.
Colton is falling in love with all four women, but he must send one home. He leaves one bachelorette shattered, even as the others are excited that the Fantasy Suites are next. Then in a stunning turn of events, Colton leaves the room to talk to Chris Harrison. Why? And will he change his mind – and his future?
The four remaining women are the following:
Caelynn, 23, Miss North Carolina 2018 from Charlotte, North Carolina
Cassie, 23, a speech pathologist from Huntington Beach, California
Hannah G., 23, a content creator from Birmingham, Alabama
Tayshia, 28, a phlebotomist from Corona Del Mar, California
