The Bachelor Recap: Hometown Dates, Roses, Pranks

by at . Comments

Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant met the family of Shayne Lamas - as well as the families of her competition, Chelsea, Noelle, and Amanda.

Matt visited Shayne Lamas' family first and meets her parents separately, since they are divorced. Sadly, A.J. Lamas does not appear.

When she meets her quasi-famous dad, Lorenzo Lamas, he blurts out to Matt Grant that Shayne was just interested in getting on TV when she decided to go on The Bachelor. We're startled to hear this revelation, competely.

Shayne quickly tries to defend herself, saying that she is only there for him. It seems to be good enough for both Matt Grant and for her father Lorenzo, who appreciate what she has to say about herself and her feelings.

Would Shayne Lamas receive one of the final three roses on this night?

On his date with Chelsea, Matt explains to her family just how serious he is about finding love. After a nice, relaxing meal, Matt heads out - but not before Chelsea says she is falling for him and enjoys time with him.

With Noelle, the two go hiking and ride horses in Colorado. Very pretty. Noelle's family is approving of Matt, but ask tough questions, and Matt is forced to admit that he is falling in love with her - but also with more than one woman.

Finally, Matt Grant visits Amanda, who in a colossal prank, hired actors to play her parents. Her father asked uncomfortable questions as her mother tried to hit on him. When the gag was revealed, Matt was a good sport.

At the rose ceremony, Matt gave roses to Shayne Lamas, then to Amanda and lastly to Chelsea. Matt decided to eliminate Noelle, feeling that their connection came too late. She took the news well by Bachelor standards.


Hi, I'm sorry but are you talking about Shayne? and where exactly is this info you saw? because I went there and there is just too much going on that it is impossible to find exactly what you've described. So, does this mean Matt chose Chelsea? That would really bum me out! I was rooting for Shayne! He would be insane not to chose a movie star over a champion arm wrestler!!!


well i hope that Matt pick amanda even thou she pulled that prank on him and i don't think she should have but time will to me I think the best family visit was chelesa I know she's a little diffenet but i think Matt can change her shyness for shayne isn't in love with him it's all about her career and there won't be a wedding on tv like trista and ryan good luck amanda


Shayne is soo fake. I was kind of hoping Noelle would win because she seems more real and not so fake.


Shayne is totally in it for the fame! Even her dad said as much. If Matt was really looking for love, he made a big mistake getting rid of Noelle. I think she was the best "wife" material of the 4 girls. His loss!


IF Shayne is really serious about Matt, I hope he picks her. I hope she isn't just trying to "win." I would hate to see Matt's heart get broken.


If Matt doesnt choose Shayne he is totally a geek.

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
