'The Bachelor' Season 26: Here are the top four contestants making it to hometowns
'The Bachelor' Season 26 might be in Croatia, but the ladies are certainly not having an all-round good time. With a rose ceremony around that corner that will lead into hometowns, everyone is feeling the pressure of the situation. After all, for the four women that make it to hometowns, Clayton will be meeting the parents.
During the odd psychoanalysis date, Clayton asked Genevieve to leave, seeing that she was struggling to open up at this stage in the show. But Genevieve held her ground, seeing that she had her walls up and it wasn't easy for her to just open up on national TV.
With Genevieve gone, it was down to Sarah, Teddi, Rachel and Gabby. However, the therapist informed Clayton that one of the women were putting up a performative persona and Clayton was soon determined to get to the bottom of it. He sat down with each of the women and spoke to them about it. Rachel said that it was possibly Sarah, as she manipulated her and Teddi into pulling away. Teddi also agreed that her insecurities stemmed from Sarah's words.
Even Gabby admitted that Sarah's confidence was affecting others. When confronted, Sarah denied it, saying that she was being 'thrown under the bus' for getting two one-on-one dates and that she had been a sounding board' for others, but was not allowed to express her own feeling. Clayton called her out on her fake tears, to which Sarah responded that she had no tears left to shed on the situation. This was enough for Clayton to ask her to leave -- he also didn't give out a group date rose.
When it came to the rose ceremony, it meant that out of the three women who hadn't received a rose, only two would be allowed to stay. Clayton picked Gabby and Rachel, sending Teddi home.
Looks like we finally have our top four for Season 26 -- Susie, Serene, Rachel and Gabby.
