After last week’s bore of an episode, we finally pick up a little steam and head into hometowns. This week we are heading to Highlands Ranch CO, Chico CA (vom), St. Augustine FL, and Burnett TX.
Chase gets the first hometown date. Translation: Chase’s date has nothing to offer and will get the least screen time.
I honestly can’t think of a hometown in recent memory where the lead met both parents separately. Usually either one doesn’t come or they are forced into an awkward ex-spouse gathering.
Why does Chase’s mom act like this reality TV dating show is the best thing to happen to her son? We need more disapproving parents on this show. (Hi, Andi Dorfman’s dad!)
Chase finally drops the “I love you” on JoJo and I can’t decide if it’s adorable that he has never said it to anyone before, or a massive red flag that he is 27 years old and has never told a girl he loves them.
I can not take this beautiful snowy weather seriously as we watch this episode in the heat of JULY.
Welcome to Chico, CA where there is literally nothing better to do than wander around your former high school that you haven’t been a student at in 10+ years. I can’t decide if Jordan’s hair was better or worse in his high school throwback pictures.
All of these teachers are internalizing their anger that Jordan is the Rodger’s brother that decided to show up on campus today and not Aaron.
Jordan, you didn’t even start on the JV football team? You should have thrown in the towel then.
Speaking of Aaron Rogers, this show and this family is DRAGGING him. I am counting down the minutes until he releases a statement.
For a family that doesn’t associate with their “other brother” they sure use his name a lot. “Say Aaron again. AARON.”
Luke Rogers’ girlfriend needs a new hair lady STAT.
Finally, the drama we have been waiting for! Robby & JoJo ride around St. Augustine in a horse drawn carriage, but let’s be real no one gives a shit about that.
Congrats to Robby on having the most normal looking family. Does his dad introduce himself to all girls as Coach Hayes?
Robby’s mom isn’t just a regular mom, she’s a cool mom.
“Reality Steve your ex girlfriend’s roommate is spreading truth rumors that you dumped her to go on the show”
Side note, the Hayes family and their plastic wine glass tumblers are LIFE.
You know who else is getting dragged this season? Robby’s ex. Poor girl. For what it’s worth, I am #TeamHope.
Somehow, Robby salvages this situation and I still don’t understand how he made that work.
Building on last week’s preliminary audition for the role of The Bachelor, Luke is bringing out the big guns today.
Luke & JoJo arrive at the weirdest “family” picnic ever. Talk about throwing JoJo to the wolves by dropping her in a 50 person town gathering of “every person who has ever impacted your life.”
Luke: “JoJo looks so cute in those boots that
Chris Harrison and Elan I bought her.“
I had to look away when JoJo won that game of corn hole and jumped/embraced this girl she just met.
There is no way that Luke took the time to build a heart shape out of flower petals in this field, but I will go with it.
We are cursed again with a “to be continued,” so we will have to wait another week to watch sad cowboy Luke get dumped and left on the tarmac. (Just wondering why Luke is going home???? I thought Robby/Chase were shoo-ins for this weeks elims.)
Until next week, when we get double dose of Bachelorette! Xo
