When are hometown dates on The Bachelor?
Hometown dates will air Monday, February 22.
Reality Steve has posted about who he believes Matt’s final four will be.
However, he is not as sure about Springs being in the final four.
“I do not know who the 4th girl is, although I was told it was Bri Springs, I haven’t gotten the confirmation I needed,” Reality Steve writes.
“But since I’m just laying out everything for you that I was told pre-season, there you go.

“If/When I get solid confirmation, I’ll let you know if Bri is in fact the 4th girl. That doesn’t mean she finished in 4th place.
“I’m just trying to give you the 4 girls that got hometown dates. Serena P., Rachael, and Michelle definitely did.”
Reportedly, Rachael and Michelle will finish top two.
Will Matt James travel to meet the families?
Hometown dates will play out similarly to Tayshia Adam’s season due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Who will be the next Bachelorette?
There are several contestants from Matt’s season that stand out as the next potential leading lady.
Bri Springs, Abigail Heringer, Katie Thurston, and Michelle Young are all possible contenders from Matt’s season to lead the 17th season of The Bachelorette.
Is Bri Spring the next Bachelorette?
28-year-old Kelley Flanagan, who first appeared on screens as a contestant on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor, is another name that has been thrown into the hat.
Despite ending up together, Kelley and Peter split in early 2021. The former contestant took to Instagram to reflect on the breakup.
“2021 has been a rough start but if I’ve learned anything the last couple of days, it’s to keep pushing through no matter what life throws at you,” she wrote.
Kelley Flanagan has said she would ‘consider’ being The Bachelorette
“You can’t help what happens but you can choose how you react. It’s OK to not feel the best at times and honestly, it makes you appreciate the good things in life. The saying ‘when it rains it’s [sic] pours’ has definitely hit me with adjustments but this is just a chapter of my life!”
She has hinted at her openness on becoming the next Bachelorette should the opportunity present itself to her.
