Things are heating up in this season of  The Bachelor, and in recent celebrity news, Nick Viall went on hometown dates with the remaining four ladies. UsMagazine.com recapped the events from that night. While being in a celebrity relationship with dozens of women, it is no surprise that the final four can be difficult to handle. The final four ladies are Corrine, Rachel, Vanessa and Raven. Nick headed to Arkansas, Dallas, Miami and Montreal to meet with the four families, and each of his dates went rather well. He did have a difficult time when Vanessa’s father asked if he had asked the other fathers for their daughter’s hands in marriage, and that put a big riff in his and Vanessa’s relationship. At the end of the show, there were previews of a shocking visit from Nick’s celebrity ex and former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman. You’ll have to tune in next week to find out what happens next!

In celebrity news, The Bachelor‘s hometown dates were anything but drama-free! What are some ways to prepare for meeting your new partner’s family?
