There is only one hometown date on The Bachelorette that we haven’t set up before now, and it’s the one featuring both Eric Bigger and Rachel Lindsay. With that, let’s dive into it!
The date between Rachel and Eric should prove interesting. He’s a nice guy who has a great attitude and a lot of love for her, but at the same time is there a deep-enough connection? Look at what Rachel has with Eric in comparison to Peter Kraus and Bryan Abasolo, who are the two guys at the moment who she seems to have the strongest connection with her.
Hopefully, this date will allow Rachel to have a chance to see a deeper, more personal side of Eric, someone who had a tough childhood at times and has really managed to break through and get into a better place. This date could inspire her, especially since that we’re going to get a chance to have her seen him in a different light. Also, for Eric, this is going to be super-important thanks to him introducing someone he cares about deeply to him parents. Take a look below for some other insight:
“Rachel starts her visits with a journey to Baltimore, Eric’s hometown. This ambitious young bachelor, whose infectious smile and positive energy have captured her heart, takes the Bachelorette to the rough neighborhood where he grew up. She is in awe of his strength and integrity, as he explains the obstacles he overcame to go to college and achieve his career goals. Eric has never brought a woman home to meet his parents, so Rachel is naturally very nervous. This emotional man vows to his family that he will stop running from love and confess his feelings to Rachel. But will he have the nerve to go through with it?”
If Eric doesn’t confess to all of his feelings, it’s really not all that hard to project where the remainder of this story could go. Eric’s legacy could eventually lead to him being that contestant who goes home because he doesn’t open up about his feelings. That typically does make a great story for The Bachelor down the line, but the bad news there is mostly that he’s far from a lead contender for that. We see Peter far and away in the lead, with maybe Dean in second place. He’s probably more likely to get it than Bryan, just because he hasn’t received much of an edit beyond that of a Rachel frontrunner.
