AFTER ALL THE DRAMA, TEARS AND SURPRISE GOODBYES, NICK JOINS THE REMAINING FOUR BACHELORETTES IN THEIR HOMETOWNS, ON ABC'S 'THE BACHELOR'

"Episode 2108" - Corinne, Rachel, Raven and Vanessa are left in Bimini, still shocked that Nick sent Kristina home before the rose ceremony. They wonder if they still will get a coveted hometown date from the unpredictable Bachelor. But with the stakes being so high, Nick will go on an emotionally charged journey to visit these final four women's hometowns. Raven meets him in Hoxie, Arkansas, and cute couple have some great, sexy fun, but Raven's father reveals some serious news. Then, it is on to Dallas where Rachel and Nick confront the challenges that might meet an interracial couple. Corinne is waiting in Miami where her father waits with some tough questions. Finally, Nick travels to Montreal to reunite with Vanessa. Although her special needs adult students give him a big thumbs up, things don't go quite so well with her big Italian family, especially after her father drops a bomb about Nick that has Vanessa questioning their relationship. Just as Nick gets ready to make the gut-wrenching decision to send one woman home, he gets a surprise visitor, who could change everything, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.

Raven and Nick enjoy some good old downhome fun as they climb to the top of a grain bin - to either break up or make out - as is the local custom. They are interrupted by the wailing of a police siren, and it looks like Nick might get arrested. The couple four-wheel through a muddy swamp and passions run high as they roll around in the muddy water. After they clean up, it's time to meet Raven's parents. Her dad has been dealing with health issues and shares some encouraging news. Will Raven now feel safe enough to share her feelings with Nick and let him know she is falling in love?

Rachel meets Nick in Dallas and takes him to church. He may be one of few white people in attendance, but he feels right at home. How will he feel when he meets Rachel's family? After the two discuss the trials and tribulations they may face as an interracial couple, they discover that, happily, her family sees in him what she sees in him. With this last hurdle cleared, will Rachel admit to herself that she is falling in love with Nick and will she tell him?

However, in Miami, Corinne has already fallen head over designer heels in love with Nick, which she has no problems sharing with him. The bold bachelorette takes her low-key suitor to one of the most exclusive malls in Miami to shop for an outfit that will impress her wealthy family - and her much-buzzed-about nanny, Raquel. Corinne's protective dad is concerned whether Nick will be able to keep his daughter in the style to which she is accustomed. Will the Bachelor get the approval of Corinne's parents - and Raquel?

There is a double test waiting for Nick in Montreal when Vanessa takes him to visit her special-needs students and her family. Her students are enthusiastically receptive, but her family has serious concerns about where the couple would live and how Vanessa will manage if she is asked to move away from the people and places she has held dear to her. Her father doesn't help matters by sharing some information about Nick that has Vanessa questioning whether she will get her fairytale ending.

The final four anxious women come to New York for the rose ceremony. As he contemplates his next decision, Nick is not beyond being very nervous himself. He has been in love twice before with Andi and Kaitlyn, only to have his heart broken both times. Will everything explode in his face again? The answer might come from a surprise visitor to Nick's hotel, who could alter everything.

The four remaining women are:
Corinne, 24, business owner, Miami, FL
Rachel, 31, attorney, Dallas, TX
Raven, 25, fashion boutique owner, Hoxie, AR
Vanessa, 29, special education teacher, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
