Wow. Tonight’s episode of The Bachelor was a roller coaster, wasn’t it?

Not the exciting adrenaline-filled ride you wish would never end. No, it was the other kind of roller coaster. The kind that makes you feel sick to your stomach and leaves someone covered in vomit.

Thursday night’s hometowns episode saw Matt Agnew trek around the country to meet the nearest and dearest of his four remaining potential wives – Abbie, Helena, Emma and Chelsie.

Side note – you can watch part of Matt’s awkward date with Abbie in the snippet below. Post continues after video.

In Bachie land, the hometown dates always deliver the goods. Whether it’s a rogue uncle saying inappropriate things at the dinner table or an overprotective relative trying to make sure bach is good enough for their offspring, meeting the families is always dramatic.

And tonight was no different. After much chaos and ‘I caaaaan’ts’, Emma (the one who loves to be in love) was sent packing. It was a lot and we need to debrief.

Settle in for tonight’s disastrous episode of The Bachelor retold in funny and searingly accurate tweets.
