Episode 8: (Hometowns, 4 down to 3)
These are in order that they were filmed. No idea what order they’ll be shown during the episode.
Emily Maynard (Charlotte, NC, filmed Oct. 27th) Her daughter was filmed as part of her video package in the beginning of the show. I’m guessing she was part of the hometown date as well, but not sure. Can’t imagine Emily went home and didn’t see her daughter.
Chantal O’Brien (Mercer Island, WA, filmed Oct. 29th) Visited Alki Beach and the Space Needle before meeting the family.
Shawntel Newton (Chico, CA, filmed Oct. 31st) How fitting the mortician got the hometown date on Halloween. I’m sure that wasn’t done on purpose at all, although, the show usually never back tracks itself and reveals when things are being filmed. Unless it’s someone’s birthday. Don’t know if they’ll reference on the show that the hometown actually took place on Halloween, but, it did.
Ashley Hebert (Madawaska, ME, filmed on Nov. 2nd) Ate at the Lakeview Restaurant in St. Agatha, Maine.

Episode 9: Overnight Dates (In South Africa, 3 down to 2)
No dramatic exits for anyone like running back to an ex-boyfriend back home or anything of that nature. Not really sure on any of the locations or where they all went to during the overnights, nor do I care. If I find out, I’ll let you know, but I’m not holding my breath. As for the overnights themselves? Bow-chicka-bow-bow. I’m sure we can all guess what went on when each of them closed the door slowly behind them and the cameras went away. Yep, that’s right. Serious, meaningful, and insightful conversation til the wee hours of the morning discussing all things life, politics, and family. Oh, and deep penetration.
