USA TODAY - Part one of a two-episode 'Bachelor' arc had Juan Pablo visiting the hometowns of his four female suitors.

He started off with a visit to Kansas City, Missouri to visit Nikki's family where he enjoyed a warm welcome. Nikki decided that she loved him, but she didn't tell him because the mood was not right.

Andi's family in Atlanta was the next stop. Andi took him to a shooting range to calm their nerves before he met her family. They weren't overly impressed with him. Andi's dad basically said that he wouldn't give him his blessing until JP settled on dating just his daughter, as opposed to juggling four different relationships.

Next was Renee's family in Sarasota. She and her son Ben shared a teary reunion at his baseball game, and Juan Pablo seemed to be pretty-well-liked by the rest of Renee's family.

Then it was Clare's hometown of Sacramento. Some of her five sisters gave him a difficult time, but in the end, Clare's mom spoke a little Spanish to him and gave him her blessing.

Then at the rose ceremony, Juan Pablo eliminated Renee and gave her a tearful good-bye. JP and the three remaining women will travel to St. Lucia on Tuesday's episode where fantasy suite drama will ensue.
