This week’s episode of The Bachelor kicks things off with Peter and Madison’s one-on-one date. Peter shows Madison that he has removed the medical bandage on his forehead–revealing a character-defining scar, which means that it’s official: Peter the Pilot is Harry Potter. Check him out in theaters this summer in the upcoming blockbuster: Peter the Pilot and the Sorcerer’s Rose.
Peter and Madison enjoy a romantic picnic on a boat and then stand on the bow of the ship like in Titanic (1997). I can’t wait to see what happens at the next (Jack and) Rose ceremony. At the end of their date, Peter tells Madison that he is falling in love with her. Usually when people on The Bachelor say “I’m falling in love with you” it feels more like “I-advanced-like-you,” but when Peter says it to Madison, you can practically hear the recorder version of “My Heart Will Go On” playing in the background.
Natasha, the event planner, expresses her professional concerns about scheduling, observing that she has not gone on a one-on-one date but some of the girls have gone on two. While talking about the slow pace of his relationship with Natasha, Peter says “It’s not about how fast it goes, it’s about how strong it is once you get there.”–which would be a great slogan for a Popeye-themed go-kart with an inferiority complex.
During our commercial break, we see an ad for an upcoming tv show guest-starring one of the men from last season of The Bachelorette–Tyler C.. He leans against the edge of a front door smiling to the camera with the name “Tyler C.” written across the screen in primary blue comic sans like it’s the theme song for your Kindergarten class’ 90’s sitcom.
After the commercial break, Peter does take Natasha on her scheduled one-on-one date. They go out dancing and discuss the status of their relationship over a candlelit dinner. Sadly, Peter sends her home at the end of the date with a truly heartbreaking goodbye. As Peter escorts Natasha to her elimination limo, a full string orchestra appears and begins performing a montage of depressing music. This breakup was orchestrated in more ways than one.
Next, it is announced that Peter will be taking Kelley, Victoria, and Hannah Ann on a three-on-one date. The date card reads, “Tomorrow won’t be easy.” Then, all at the same time, the three women say — “Tomorrow won’t be easy,” “Tomorrow is going to be hard,” and “We all know tomorrow won’t be easy,” –like they’re middle school students in a core-curriculum required drama class playing random civilians in a bootleg production of Annie and their teacher just told them to ad-lib “The sun won’t come out, tomorrow.”
Kelley takes things to a whole new level, however, when she tells Victoria and Hannah Ann that she wishes she could push them in front of a bus, really bringing us into the world of Tina Fey’s Mean Girls (2004). If we’re casting Mean Girls with the contestants on this season of The Bachelor I think Hannah Ann is Karen and Victoria is definitely Gretchen Weiners because she has brown hair and is super anxious. In the next shot, the 3 women walk up to the date in slow motion with determination and attitude. Those are the Plastics(urgery).
At the end of the group date, Peter gives a rose to Victoria, and some Marvel-franchise sounding music plays as Peter addresses Kelley and Hannah Ann. Just like Tyra Banks eliminating a contestant on America’s Next Top Model, a stoic Peter summarizes the pros and cons of the bottom two contestants with dramatic intensity. Two beautiful ladies stand before me, but I only have one rose in my hands.
The episode ends with Peter giving the final rose to Hannah Ann, and we get a sneak preview of all the drama that awaits us next week. Will Peter find love, or will this dark-haired magical prophecy boy be prepping for the upcoming film, Peter the Pilot and the Prisoner of Chris Harris-san?

Sure, it’d be real nice to know what happened to Michelle two years ago — but as we know, Chris Harrison doesn’t care about what happened in 2018 #TheBachelor

Who Went Home After Hometown Dates on ‘The Bachelor’ Season 25 Week 8?
The hometown dates are upon us on The Bachelor Season 25 Week 8!
Michelle scored the first date!
The teacher brought her hometown of Minnesota to Nemacolin, a remote location in Pennsylvania, to give Matt a little taste of her life. She put Matt to the ultimate test: a Q+A with her students via a Zoom call!
>Meeting Michelle’s parents is a positive experience — they play basketball, Michelle tells him that she loves him, and everyone seems happy.
The second date went to Rachael, a graphic designer from Cumming, Ga., who has had a bit of off-screen controversy.
Prior to meeting the family, the couple had a whirlwind date that involved going skydiving and Rachael’s crash landing. That seemed to bring her down to reality because while they both admitted that they’re falling in love with each other — and the family meeting went well despite her father’s objections that things were moving too fast (has he ever seen the show?) — Rachael realized she wasn’t the only one in the running after sharing that was disappointed that Matt didn’t ask for her father’s blessing.

Rachael, hunny, we still have two more hometown dates ahead of us!
The third date was with Bri, who previously revealed she quit her dream job as a communications manager.
She threw it back to the first date in which Matt “almost killed” her and took him off-roading! A taste of his own medicine!
Bri was excited for Matt to meet her single mom and her infant baby sister, but her mom was skeptical and wanted to remind her daughter to be “honest” and “vulnerable” about her feelings.
And finally, Serena P. introduced Matt to her hometown of Canada before allowing him to meet her family. It’s a must if you’re going to date a “proud Canadian.”
However, during the meeting, her sister said she thinks “something is missing” and Serena doesn’t seem smitten, which kind of ruined the whole mood and made Serena realize she has a lot of doubts about the relationship.
She wanted the hometown to get her to the point where she’s certain, but instead, it left her more confused about the situation.
When the two sat down for a one-on-on, Matt tried to smooth things over. While Serena P. said that she initially thought it was fear, she later admitted to herself that she can’t go through with it because Matt’s not her person.
“I’m just not there, and I don’t know why,” she informs him. Despite the heartbreak, Matt took it like a champ and asked Serena P. to walk him downstairs. What a role-reversal! Is Serena P. The Bachelor now?
“I’m just disappointed because that’s not how I saw our journey ending,” he said.
And thus, the final three women moving onto Fantasy Suites are….
Rachael, 24, a graphic designer from Cumming, Ga.
Bri, 24, a communications manager from San Francisco, Calif.
Michelle, 27, a teacher from Edina, Minnesota
But which woman was the second choice had Serena P. not backed out?! I guess we’ll never know… XoXo.
Ahead of tonight’s episode, Matt James also issued this statement on Twitter about the controversy surrounding Rachael and Chris Harrison. He explained he’s learning about these “incredibly disappointing” photos in “real time,” which leads me to believe the winner is Rachael but the duo broke up because of what transpired off-screen.
He also condemned Harrison’s behavior.
Check out his tweet below:

What do you think? Who will Matt choose? What did you think of that statement?
