Four guys. One girl. Four families. One broken heart.
Things got serious, emotional, cheesy and awkward as always on The Bachelorette as Emily Maynard went to her prospective husbands' places of origin.
Arie, Chris, Jef and Sean each received a hero's welcome and acquitted themselves well on make-or-break hometown dates, but only three roses were in play.
Who got the boot, and who's on to the final three? Follow this link for all The Bachelorette spoilers we know, then read on for THG's official +/- recap!
Over-under on the number of times the phrase "hometown date" is spoken tonight? 17. And we're betting the over. Minus 17 because it'll be close.
Ricki sighting! Plus 20. She turns seven TODAY, so Plus 7 more.
Minus 10 for killing time and recapping all the guys. Snooze.
Chris Bukowski is up first. Are they getting him out of the way? Guy has to be the clear underdog among the top four. Sorry Chris, it's just true man.
"On a scale of one to Polish, we're Polish." - Proudly Polish Chris. Plus 5.
Mmm ... beer. Emily Maynard drinks a lot of it for a girly girl. Plus 4.
She always looks very, very tan ... in Chicago, in early spring, that makes one of them. Minus 3 for maybe trying just a little too hard sometimes.
Plus 6, though for the hair. It's so pretty.
Chris says his folks are pumped to meet their future daughter-in-law. On the same day Emily comes by? Wow, that's gonna be awkward! Minus 10.
