On Monday’s episode, February 10, Bachelor Nation fans and viewers will not see a rose ceremony!
As with every season, if a contestant gets a rose on a date, they then proceed to the hometown dates. However, if a contestant didn’t get one, they were automatically sent home. Recently, there has been a trend to not have a rose ceremony before the hometown dates, and this trend applies to Peter Weber’s season.
In the last episode of The Bachelor, we finally know who Peter’s final six are: Natasha Parker, Kelsey Weier, Madison Prewett, Kelley Flanagan, Victoria Fuller, and Hannah Ann Sluss. And eventually, we know that two women have to be sent home.

Peter goes on a group date with Kelley, Hannah Ann, and Victoria F. According to Reality Steve, both Victoria F. and Hannah Ann receive a rose, but Kelley doesn’t – meaning she gets sent home.
For the one-on-one dates, both Madison Prewett and Natasha Parker get one. Unfortunately, Peter decided it was time for Natasha to go home and decided to send her home while the two were on their date.
Reality Steve revealed that Madison Prewett’s hometown date would be in Auburn, Alabama, Victoria F.’s on Virginia Beach, Hannah Ann’s in Knoxville, Tennessee, and Kelsey’s in Des Moines, Iowa.
During Peter’s hometown date with Madison, Peter asks her father for his blessing to marry her but he refuses, according to Reality Steve. At this time, it is unclear how important this blessing was, but some Bachelor Nation fans are speculating that Peter may have extended the filming to win over her father. Madison’s father’s blessing is brought up earlier in the show, and many times, a parent may give their blessing once their child becomes a final choice.
As for Victoria F.’s hometown date, Reality Steve shared he was told Victoria “has a horrible reputation in the Virginia Beach area for, well, being with married men. As with anything, first time hearing something, you take it with a grain of salt. But then the emails kept coming, and coming, and coming, and coming all saying the same thing. Basically that she was bad news, many people in Virginia Beach knew the stories about her, and I should look into it more. Not only that, but if I looked deep enough, I’d probably be able to find a marriage or two that she broke up because of it. So I looked. And I found. And I’m not talking about this happening once, or even twice. The info I was receiving was talking about her having done this three or four times.”
He also tweeted, “In the last 20 minutes I’ve heard of yet another person who was called by production to show up to today’s date and confront Victoria, but then they told her they didn’t want to bring her on. So it certainly looks like her past is going to get mentioned on the show.”
Not much is known about Hannah Ann’s hometown date besides the two going to the Smoky Mountain Axe House where they played games against other couples, then went to her parent’s house for dinner.
As for Kelsey’s hometown date, Reality Steve shared that production was attempting to bring on Kelsey’s father for the dinner portion of their date – Kelsey and her sister have a very contentious relationship with their father – but was quickly shut down before it could happen.
