Everyone loves The Bachelor – admit it or not – we know you do. This season has been quite a downer for me. I expected a lot more from Peter, and he has not delivered. We’ve all seen the tik toks about how he gives a rose after every girl crys, and it’s tik toks are not wrong. My personal favorite is Madison, but for some reason I think Peter is going to pull a Hannah Brown. Pick the wrong one, and then regret it. With that being said, let’s get started on this hometowns recap!

First up…

Hannah Ann

Her accent has somehow come about. Never heard it until this episode. Kinda fishy, if you ask me. Her accent goes in and out, which is weird. Then Peter wrote her a letter that I think he wrote in the fifth grade. It was very cheesy, but Hannah Ann loved it. Obviously we could all tell that her dad was not into it, he wasn’t super supportive. He was not expecting Peter to tell him that he was falling in love with his daughter. Her mom was super cute! (cuter than me, lol). She was very supportive of her daughter.

Peter was very dramatic at the end and I just don’t think their connection is real.

I personally have never liked her. The stupid champaigne drama and her fake nose. I don’t care what she says, her nose is fake. Her family and her definitely all got their noses done at the same time.

I loved their date, it was very cute. However, using their own feet to make wine was just out right disgusting. Of course Kelsey is in love with Peter, they all are.

I also loved their house, it was super cute, but maybe it was staged. Although, she’s very unstable and cries a lot. She gets that from her mom, you will see that in the episode. Her mom cried at least three times. He also told Hannah Ann that he was falling in love with her. He’s gonna get caught in a love triangle!!!

Third up…


I loved this date! I am a huge basketball fan and thought it was super cute. Madison was great at basketball, and Peter wasn’t so bad himself. Madison is the most realist and down to earth out of all the girls.

Also, my family also has a special plate, so I thought that was pretty funny when she had one too. I don’t think it should matter that she is saving herself for marriage, he should respect that. Her dad is very intense, but a sweetheart on the inside. Peter was pretty bad at answering any of his questions, which I get because he can’t really talk about the other girls. Peter actually said that he loves her, she never said it back though. So, this could possibly turn into a Colton and Cassie situation.

Last up…


She is so annoying! She always messes up the dates, I don’t think there has ever been one date that has gone smoothly for her. Marissa came out of nowhere, don’t think she was super necessary for the show though. Just brought more unnecessary drama. Victoria is very immature, she never wants to fix her problems with Peter and just runs away, and then she denies it all. The same thing happens every time, she cries, Peter then has to go calm her down. He doesn’t meet her family, which was shocking, but you know what makes it even better…. HE GIVES HER A ROSE.

I don’t like Kelsey, but he did tell her he was falling in love with her. Did he say that to Victoria, no. Victoria is just not invested and I think he will end up picking Hannah Ann. She is the safest option for Peter. It also showed next week previews, where Madison supposedly gives him an ultimatum. Who will Peter chose?

Stay tuned for next week’s article to see what happens in the fantasy sweets!!!
