"The Bachelor " 2018 spoilers indicate that Arie Luyendykr, Jr. is getting closer to a possible proposal. The cast has finished filming in Paris and Italy and are now back in the United States for final episodes. At this time, the final four remain and taping for the hometown dates are in session. Which contestants made the cut?

Final three hometowns

Tia Booth, 26, from Jonesboro, Arkansas is one of Arie's final four. The two filmed the hometown date last Thursday, according to Steve's "Bachelor" spoilers. The second hometown date was with Lauren Burnham, 25, from Virginia Beach; her hometown was taped on Saturday.

Becca Kufrin, 27, from Minneapolis, Minnesota will be filmed with Arie on Monday. The third hometown is unknown right now. Steve notes in his blog that he has some information on the date, but the location of where it's going to be filmed is puzzling because it's not taking place anywhere the contestant or her family is from. Once he gets his hands on more solid information, he'll pass it along to fans. The fourth hometown takes place on Wednesday, November 1.

Raven Gates' friend makes hometowns

In an earlier scoop of "The Bachelor" 2018 spoilers, it was revealed that a friend of Raven Gates' would appear in Arie's season and that she might go far in the show. As it turns out, it's true because she made it to hometowns.

Steve mentioned in one of his blog posts that Tia Booth is a friend of Raven's (Nick Viall's season and "Bachelor in Paradise" season 4) and it wouldn't be a surprise to see her go the distance in Arie's season. Tia is a graduate of Arkansas State University and is a physical therapist. Steve adds that Tia is originally from Weiner, Arkansas and brought Arie and Oscar Mayer Weiner whistle.


Becca Kufrin apparently made Arie propose to her when she met him on the first episode. Evidently, it didn't scare him off because he picked the PR account executive as one of his semi-finalists. Not much is written about Lauren Burnham, who works in sales. A few images from Steve's Twitter account show Arie with Becca in Italy and during their hometown date in Virginia Beach.

Filming is almost a wrap

Soon the final 3 contestants will be narrowed down for the overnight dates and there will be a lot more to run with! Will Arie Luyendyk, Jr. find love this time around in the franchise? His time with Emily Maynard on "The Bachelorette" didn't pan out, but maybe this time he'll find his soul mate. Who knows, maybe even those naysayers who wanted Peter Kraus to be the one finding love next season will be pleasantly surprised by what Arie has to offer as "The Bachelor" 2018 lead.
