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.
