It’s Week 7 of The Bachelor and things are definitely heating up … and boiling over. Colton Underwood is heading into hometown dates next week and his relationships are taking a more serious turn. With more emotion comes more drama, and there was a lot of tension among the contestants. Keep scrolling for the full episode recap!
After a fun trip around Asia, the gang headed to Colton’s hometown of Denver, Colorado, for the crucial relationship building week. Three women went home last week and warned him that there were people left who weren’t ready to get engaged, leaving him a bit shaken up.
The couple had a chill day eating ice cream and checking out the town. While having drinks, the leading man asked Tayshia if she had seen or heard anything suspicious around the house. “I feel like Cassie and Caelynn are ingenuine,” she divulged. She also added that they were discussing their chance of being the next Bachelorette.
Caelynn and Cassie privately spoke in a bedroom about the rumors circulating around the house. They mentioned that Tayshia would most likely say something to Colton if she thought someone was there for the wrong reasons. Both of them looked worried but agreed they were probably fine.
Colton addressed the things Tayshia said about Caelynn not being ready for marriage and the idea that she was vying to be the next Bachelorette. “I wouldn’t put myself through this emotional hell if I just wanted a boyfriend after this … I’m 100% ready to be engaged, to be married,” she assured him. She added during her private interview, “I better get a rose because I will call that stupid bitch out.”
Although the date was bumpy, Caelynn assured him that she was ready for marriage and even said she was falling in love with him. She received the date rose which means she’ll be introducing her family to her reality beau!
The former Miss North Carolina told the phlebotomist that she felt their entire friendship was a lie. Tayshia didn’t seem too sorry for the things she told Colton because she said that, if the situation was reversed, Caelynn “would do the same thing.”
Heather opened up about not feeling ready to bring the reality star home to meet her family and sent herself home. It was a very amicable split and both of them looked pretty relieved to end on a good note.
After Cassie spent her alone time with the football stud convincing him that all the rumors about her were completely fabricated, the dental hygienist spent her few moments confirming everything Tayshia said. “I just don’t know where the truth is. I’m hearing two completely different things from women I trust,” an exhausted Colton said.
She didn’t want her friend’s chances to be squashed because of rumors being spread. She walked into the date, said her peace and walked out. This could’ve been the extra confidence Colton needed to make a decision.
