I saw a preview on Facebook and if what I saw is to be true, then I have been waiting for this episode all season long. Let's go see if I am right or not....
It's hometown date episode and the 4 boys left are Jordan, Luke, Chase and Robbie who, by the way, could all pass as brothers they look so similar to each other. She definitely has a type.
They kick out the hometown episode in Colorado with Chase. And they found a spot without a single drop of snow on it and laid a blanket down so they could have a heart to heart chat about his divorced family. And then they kiss because that makes everything better on this show. She's very happy that he opened up to her because he really hasn't been doing that at all. He takes her to his house and then his dad shows up to meet JoJo. I love how the dad is like do you actually get to spend some time together hahahahahahha. Even he thinks the whole concept of this show is weird. Chase says they do and that when they do it is just "out of this world". I wonder how awkward it was for his dad to have his divorce from Chase's mom brought up like that since it happened like 20 years ago and probably isn't something they discuss much at all, if any, anymore. And then to ask him why it didn't work out the first time round but it is the second time. The dad didn't seem surprised at all by these questions or flustered so my bet is that he was prepped ahead of time. Then the dad and Chase had some one on one time together. I lol'd when he had to confirm that what he and JoJo had was "real".
Now Chase and JoJo are off to meet the rest of his family. It's so weird how huggy they are all with her. Maybe it is just me hahaha. They are sitting down for dinner and he's like i hope you guys see what I see in her....who says like that in front of said girl while at the dinner table?? So awkward. JoJo giggles because she is probably (maybe??) embarrassed by this and his mom says she has a spectacular laugh haha. Although if you have been on The Bachelor and now on The Bachelorette you probably have a low sense of embarrassment at this point. Mom and JoJo go for a little one on one with some wine in the snow, it;s amazing how mild it must be there for them to have no toques or jackets on, sitting on a deck in March. I kinda tuned out for the rest of their conversation because I am bored by all of the "divorce" talk. I don't think my views on marriage or relationships was shaped much at all by parents divorce. I certainly was never cynical about any of it anyways. And the chat between him and sister was the same. I don't think it matters whether or not you come from a broken home if you can or cannot say the "love" word. I think it is just a lame excuse. But that is just my opinion. I was really annoyed at this point so I fast forwarded to him talking to his mom which I assume is also going to be boring. JoJo and Chase make out in the snow but not cold weather. He tells her that he is falling in love with her and her response is you never say stuff like that hahahahahha. She will miss him she says and they hug and then she leaves.
All the previews of JoJo in that dress and she is crying - is she upset over a boy or because her dress is so ugly. Sorry friends if you are liking it, but I am definitely not.
So it is a commercial break and I read about the Jordan - Aaron relationship fall out and I have no idea if it is true or if it will come out in the next segment so I will talk about it here. Apparently Aaron's fiancee Olivia Munn (actress; I only know her from The Newsroom but I am sure there is others) set up Jordan with her personal trainer (don't remember her name. Britney or Jessica maybe??) and apparently Jordan cheated on her and Olivia took the trainer's side in the break up and Aaron sided with her and that upset the family so now Aaron has no relationship with his family because of this. No idea how true this is but apparently when the jilted (and perhaps fame seeking) ex girlfriend posted on her IG account that Jordan cheated on her, Olivia liked it. Ok commercial is over....
JoJo is surrounded by deer in Jordan's hometown in Chico, California to meet his family. I am not sure if she is more excited to see Jordan or all the deer!! They are excited to see each other and they have apparently missed each other. She seems more excited to see him (or the deer??) then she was Chase. But I don't think Chase is a real contender imo. He lives in Nashville but this is where he calls home because it is where his family lives and he loves it there. They hit up his high school first because that it where it all started and the school had a Welcome Home Jordan + JoJo with a rose on their electronic sign outside the school. Not sure what they are actually called but we will go with that as I am sure you know what I am talking about anyways haha. They both love it and kiss because of it. There must not be anything in Chico if they are walking around his school campus and meeting one of his favourite coaches of all time.... He went around and introduced her to all his teachers because he loves her and he likes sharing this aspect of his life with her. This is so strange to me. Do "real" couples and people do this? I never thought for one moment of my life to do this with Greg???? And then they are making out in the library between the aisles. Quite possibly the cheesiest thing I have seen in a long time which says a lot considering I watch this show haha. All 3 Rodgers brothers have their photos on the walls in the gym room and he seemed quite disinterested when JoJo pointed out a photo of Aaron. Although that could have been all the work of camera angles and producers, we don't know for sure. JoJo is worried that his parents are too skeptical of the whole bachelorette thing and won't like her. She is also the first girl that Jordan has brought home since his ex, which I am assuming is Olivia's personal trainer. This also makes her nervous. Her being JoJo of course haha.
JoJo is bringing flowers for Mrs Rodgers and I can't tell if that is her purse that Jordan is carrying or another gift of some kind. I am totally loving the colour and style of the Rodger's chico home!!! That green is amazing. All 3 Rodgers boys look so much a like even with Luke's beard. They seem like a pretty normal family but of course there were 2 painfully obvious empty seats at the end of the table that were a sad reminder that Aaron and Olivia were missing from this family. So cheesy. Luke and JoJo go chat alone and she brings up Aaron. She says that it seems like Jordan misses him and is in pain over the situation but doesn't like to talk about and Luke confirms that sentiment and that it is like that for all of them. He is optimistic that it will come full circle and God will bring them back together like they should be. Luke is impressed that Jordan shared this with her so that must mean he is really into her. ***Insert cheesy eye roll here*** Aaron is blurred out in the photos they show of him so he must not have ok'd ABC to use his likeness on the show. Now Jordan and Luke are chatting on the porch. I am still loving the colour of their house. JoJo now is chatting with his dad and he talks about how happy Jordan is and is intrigued by the whole bachelorette thing. Nothing monumental to speak of either way. Kinda boring but I don't fast forward it because I like these two together. She is falling in love with him she says. I don't recall if she has said that about any of the other remaining dudes. This makes me happy. Now, Jordan and his ma are talking one on one. I wonder if Luke's girlfriend is disappointed she's not getting any one on one time with the bachelor or bachelorette haha.
The visit is winding down and Jordan and JoJo are getting ready to say their goodbyes to each other. Jordan says he loves her and wants to be with her but JoJo is still scared that if it is them in the end, does he really, truly want it to be forever. She wants to tell him that she loves him but she's so scared because of what Ben did to her in the bachelor season which I did not and will not ever watch. He promises her that he won't hurt her and that he won't propose if he didn't believe it didn't work. I trust him because I love him hahahahha.
And now it's Robbie's hometown date and I am not really into him at all. I don't think he's really over his ex girlfriend who he only broke up with a few months previously and I don't think they have much of a connection. It is going to be Luke and Jordan for the final 2 bachelors imo. But back to the boring hometown date with Robbie....
Robbie lives in St. Augustine, Fl. He is referring to her as his girlfriend. I don't know how accurate that is considering she has 3 other dudes she's hooking up with. He is hoping for her to tell him she loves him but I don't think it is gonna happen. OMG a horse and carriage. For real??? This takes the cake for cheesiest moment of the show officially. I had no idea that it was so european like. I have no idea where it is exactly in Florida but I would like to visit it perhaps. She has moments that she thinks she is falling in love with him (boo) but is conflicted because of the ex girlfriend. I tuned out during their one on one chat about ex's and what not. Apparently reading about the RNC on twitter was far more fascinating for me. Sorry friends.
She is taking flowers to his mom too. Did she take flowers to Chase's mom too and I missed it?? And he has gifts too. I must have missed it with the first guy. The whole family is waiting for her and him to arrive. He has a huge family. They all love her of course. Has there ever been a case in the history of either show where the family hated the bachelor/ette?? Chase is now chatting with his little bros about JoJo. Every one on one with a brother or father or mother is the same. The dude tells them he is in love and the other people are like oh i can tell. I need something more exciting then this....back to twitter I go....hahaha. JoJo is now chatting with his mom and they are talking about how in touch he is with his feelings and how much they love that. He sounds like a real mama's boy. The ex girlfriend is brought up to absolutely nobody's surprise, she asks the mom what her thoughts are about it. His mom says she has nothing to worry about because if he thinks he is ready then he is. JoJo takes her word for it and tells her that she is falling in love with him and is very excited by this relationship. Despite this, I still don't think he makes it to the final 2.
The mom goes to find Robbie because she is worried about rumours she heard about him breaking up with the ex girlfriend just to be on the show. How come this wasn't plastered across Facebook or people.com like Jordan's ex claims were?????? Robbie is shocked that the ex's roommate would say this stuff online and in real life. He is getting upset about it because JoJo has concerns about this and he's worried that it would damage his future with JoJo. He is in love with JoJo; his frustration is showing. Robbie goes to find JoJo who is chatting with his sisters over wine in someone's bedroom to discuss the rumours floating around about him and his ex. She is scared by this revelation because of previous ex's. She is frustrated and is demanding he be honest with her and he looks worried and of course, it goes to commercial. Thankfully I can fast forward it. Of course it was all not true and that it was over long before it officially happened. He hasn't spoken to her since and has no intentions of ever doing so. She believes what he says to be true and trusts him completely because of how she feels about him.
And now we are onto the final hometown date (thank goodness) with Luke in Texas who is the only guy who hasn't told her that he loves her.....at least not yet anyways. She is very excited to see him. She is from Texas so they have that in common. He's a strong contender to Jordan for sure. She had no idea where she was going so the flowers are all clearly put in the vehicle by producers and not picked by her specifically. He does the opposite of the other guys and starts the date off with the family instead of one on one time. I am so bored by all of the family visits because it is really the same stuff reiterated by each family over and over and over. I just need to get to the rose ceremony. I wonder if he normally has a couch in the middle of his field? hahaha also I think the whole heart in flowers and candles was incredibly lame. I am beginning to think I am not really a romantic at all haha.
Rose ceremony time!!!!! I really am not liking that blue dress at all. It reminds of something you would see on the WWE or something. She's crying and is upset and has no idea what to do. Greg is currently googling Jordan Rodgers NFL career..... First rose goes to......and Luke interrupts her and wants to speak privately with her. I was hoping for drama but there was none. Was she going to send him home if he hadn't intercepted and told her that he loved her? I don't think so but who knows...
Are you effing kidding me?!?! No roses given out at all????? I have to wait another week??????? I hate this show officially now!!!!
