'Bachelorette' Tayshia Cries Over Fan Favorite's Emotionless Exit After Hometowns -- But He's Still In Love

Hometowns are here! And by here, we mean at La Quinta.

Hometowns are here! And by here, we mean at La Quinta. 

Tuesday's episode of The Bachelorette saw Tayshia Adams get to know her final four better by forcing them to try to simulate their hometowns on set at La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, California, because the coronavirus is still a thing. 

Ben, Ivan, Zac and Brendan did their best to give Tayshia a better idea of what life with them would be like and introduce her to their families as her journey to find love continues -- and as Chris Harrison teased, it got quite emotional. 

"These are moms and dads and friends that aren't used to stepping onto our stage and so it was a very vulnerable, almost uncomfortable feeling because they were walking into the lights, the cameras and our moment," he told ET last week. "It's a very different hometowns than you've ever seen before."

"These guys are in deep and it says a lot about her," the host added. "It's only going to get more difficult, more emotional as we go on." 

The men did go deep with their feelings -- but Ben didn't go deep enough. Though he realized (thanks to Top Chef star Antonia Lofaso) that he was in love with Tayshia, he didn't tell her. Furthermore, he didn't express any emotion when Tayshia sent him hope -- causing her to break down into tears. 

ET was live blogging along the way. Scroll down for a play-by-play of everything that went down ahead of next week's big finale!
