Bachelorette Tayshia Hopes to 'Make a Good Impression' During Tonight's Hometown Dates
Tayshia Adams handed out roses to her final four men during last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette” — and now the pressure is on as she heads into Hometown Dates with Zac Clark, Ivan Hall, Ben Smith, and Brendan Morais tonight.
In a sneak peek, Tayshia says she plans to put her best foot forward when meeting her top guys’ family members and loved ones. “I really hope I make a good impression,” she says, adding in another teaser, “I am so excited for Hometowns.”

The remaining guys are also thrilled about taking their relationships with Tayshia to the next level. “Seeing Tayshia with my family, I felt like I saw a glimpse of the future,” Ivan says at one point, while Ben reveals, “Tonight was the most important night of my life.”
Elsewhere, family members can’t help but comment on the connection they see between Tayshia and her suitors. “I haven’t seen you smile that much in a long time,” says Zac’s father.
Adds Brendan’s older brother, “The way you guys look at each other, there’s definitely a connection there.”
Despite his feelings for Tayshia, Brendan later admits that he is hesitant about getting down on one knee. “I have these concerns about proposing that I haven’t been able to shake,” says the commercial roofer, who has been married before.
“You love her,” a family friend of Ben’s says in another moment, to which the U.S. Army veteran shockingly replies, “I don’t know.”
Drama seems to ensue when Ivan’s mother tells Tayshia that she is still unsure of the circumstances under which their romance began. “I’m still a big skeptic,” she says. “It’s just so fast.”
Next, Zac’s brother questions Tayshia about her commitment to the addiction specialist. “Where are you at with Zac in comparison to the other three?” he asks.
“I’m definitely falling in love with Zac,” Tayshia responds, to which Zac’s brother responds bluntly, “You didn’t answer the question.”
In a separate scene, Tayshia teases an unexpected series of events. “This is not how I thought it was going to end,” she says.
“I should’ve told her,” says Ben. Meanwhile, Brendan asserts, “This is really real for me.”
Through tears, Tayshia seems to sum up her Hometowns experience by saying, “It’s just, like, a lot. It’s, like, a lot.”
