I know we deal with copious amounts of snow during our Saskatchewanian winters but Colorado simply looks stunning! The mountains and snow covered trees in the background looked amazing!
I have been a fan a Chase since his first one-on-one so I was excited to see him really in his element. This is a slightly silly observation but I love how his house was "normal". By normal I mean not a mansion like we normally see on the show (*cough* JoJo, Jordan, etc *cough*) and wasn't in "perfect" condition (see below).
Chase had really deep convos with dad, mom, and sister and you could tell they really touched his heart. But I felt like the basis of his hometown was his parent's divorce. I don't understand why we are just hearing about how this has affected him until now? Maybe this is one of those situations that is victim of editing but it made his hometown slightly boring.
Onto Jordan's hometown - Chico, California! Chico must be a boring little town if he had to bring her to his highschool for their date. ;)
The whole Aaron disowning his family situation is very intriguing to me. Is anyone else really wondering what happened? It must've been something really bad if no one wants to talk about it. I find it concerning that Jordan won't elaborate on the situation to JoJo. If he's the one she chooses, that seems like something she should know all about. Maybe he's just waiting until the Fantasy Suite Date next week to tell her off camera.
I think JoJo is going to loose Jordan if she keeps questioning him. I get that she is scared of being hurt but he seems to get more and more irritated the more she questions him.
Robby planned such a fantastic hometown date! The carriage ride through the beautiful city of St. Augustine was very romantic!
There was a lot of discussion about exes on this date. Do you believe Robby when he says that he has moved on from his last relationship? How about the accusations that he broke up with his girlfriend to be on The Bachelorette? I think because his mom had told him about the accusations and his reaction to her telling him made it seem like the ex girlfriends roommate was trying to start trouble. I can't imagine during a breakup he would just say, "honey, I'm throwing this four year relationship away and dumping you to go on some dating show, so bye". It just doesn't seem logical to me.
Sweet, sweet Luke. Now THAT is a hometown date! It has always bugged me how, during hometowns, within The Bachelor franchise it only includes meeting immediate family. Although it was nerve-wracking for JoJo, she got to see him 100% in his element and got to meet so many people who helped shape who he is. I also have to mention how incredibly sweet and wise Luke's dad is. He seems like such a great man!
Luke and his surprises. The party, then the horse ride through the pasture, and finally the candlelight walk to the flower petal heart. <3 Amazing!
I was SHOCKED when JoJo said that she was planning on sending Luke home. WHAT?!?!?! I was thinking Chase would be sent home, maybe Robby, but certainly not Luke. After reading JoJo's blog and rewatching the episode, I can see that she was "off" during the latter part of the date. But I don't understand why she didn't tell him her doubts during their time together in Texas.
That has got to be the most dramatic cliffhanger in Bachelorette history! Will JoJo change her mind and send someone else home? Will she still send Luke home?
Next week is another double header! Regular episode is on Monday and Men-Tell-All is Tuesday!! Yeah baby!
