Let’s get right into The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 Episode 7
Home Town DATES!!
Let me remind you of who our top 4 guys are:
Chase is up first – Colorado
Chase opens with telling JoJo about his parents bitter divorce and that he will introduce his dad separately. They make out.
They walk up to a nice house, now is it HIS house?
I think so. Whoa where was the railing on the stairs? I would so fall off of them! Chase’s dad rings the doorbell. They sit around and chat, Chase honestly seems like a different person, not quite so uptight and uncomfortable. Chase asks him how his first marriage failed, and his dad say he had work too high on his priorities, and he wants to make sure Chase doesn’t repeat his mistakes. Chase asks to talk to his dad solo, and they chat. His dad of course asks him, what if it isn’t you. Chase says, I am diving in, and not worrying about what-ifs right now. Dad says, you seem really happy. Omg those stairs, seriously I would bust my ass on them. Chase, honey, put up a railing.
Now Chase and JoJo go to his mom’s to meet the rest of the family. Mom, Sister and Brother-in-law, and their son, and his Stepdad.
His mom looks young. Mom pulls JoJo aside to chat. She says, she can really tell Chase is crazy about JoJo. JoJo tells mom, that it is nice that they are both so close to their moms, and mentions that Chase has been more reserved. Mom stands up for him, and says being a child of divorce, he really processes it all.
Chase and his sister sit down for a chat. (Hmmm, I seem to like the word chat today). He tells her that he told JoJo about the divorce, and he said he would never want to put anyone through what they went through. Chase says he has never really expressed “love” before. Hmmm that’s not good.
Now Chase and Momma sit down. Whoa, he seems way nervous. Mom says she great qualities: likes dogs, great laugh, likes fish, likes you, she’s darling, so she is smart. OK. She asks if he is ready to propose. He says that he is ready. They both end up crying, it was really sweet. I like them.
Chase and JoJo make out and part. He tells her that he is falling in love with her. They make out some more.
Jordan – California
JoJo is giving an interview and all of these deer run through right behind her. She freaks out.
Jordan takes her to his high school and they walk around and they meet his JV football coach and end up making out behind the bleachers and in the library.
They talk about the fact that Aaron is not to be a topic of conversation, AWKWARD.
JoJo tells us that she is the first girl that he will bring home that is a complete stranger, well let’s hope!
They show up and meet mom and dad and his brother and his girlfriend.
The guys all really resemble each other. Luke pulls her aside, and she brings Aaron up, now I thought he told you not to? Luke says, it is something they don’t talk about a whole lot, and that they really miss their brother. Luke says, he is surprised Jordan told her about that, that means he really cares for her. Was that picture that had the scribbled face Aaron???
Jordan and Luke sit down and talk (look at me using a new word!). Luke says his instincts are to look out for Jordan, and that they all go through things as a family and deal with any fall out. Jordan tells us that Luke reads people quickly and well, and that it means a lot that he likes JoJo.
JoJo sits down with dad. Dad says, Jordan looks really happy, and he hasn’t seen that in a while. He says, he can see they have a unique connection. JoJo asks what he really thinks about this situation, he was quite vague on what he really thinks. JoJo lips off about stuff she knows nothing about? I mean she is telling his dad, she knows who Jordan is, well I think he does too. Anyway, I digress.
Jordan and Mom sit, and she says the he looks great, and really happy. He says, his mom and dad really set the bar high for him, and he is really in love. She says how exciting that is. Jordan tells us, he needed his mom to see their connection.
Jordan tells her he loves her, and she says she is still scared that if it is them at the end of this, that she wants to know if it would be forever for Jordan. JoJo tells us, that she wants to say I love you back, but won’t. Jordan tells us that his feelings grew exponentially now that she has met the family! Wow I can see them together – he isn’t my fave, but I believe he is JoJo’s.
Robby – Florida
Robby and JoJo greet each other in town. You guessed it, they made out.
Robby asks JoJo to whistle, and out comes a horse drawn carriage and they get in a tour the town of St. Augustine.
She tells us, that Robby was the first person to tell her he loved her, and that has made their relationship that much stronger. She said she has conflicting feelings for Robby. She is still hung up on his most recent relationship. She of course brings it up, and says she really wants to know that that chapter is over. He again, tells her that it is IN his past. She asks him if he misses her. He of course says no, I mean really what do you think he would say.
Robby and JoJo show up to his parents house.
She meets his mom and dad, 2 sisters and 2 brothers and one sisters’ husband. Shew. They sit down to have dinner.
Mom wants to hear about all of the details of the show. Mom tells us, that JoJo made an incredible first impression and they all can see how much he cares for JoJo. The brothers all love her and say she fits in. She is smart and funny. They of course, say that he needs to protect himself.
Mom and JoJo are sitting together saying how excited they both are. She tells momma that Robby wears his emotions on his sleeve. Mom asks if there is anything that she has questions about, and of course she says YES and brings up the ex girlfriend. (Doesn’t JoJo realize she had an ex just as close….with Ben?). She says, she is afraid he hasn’t taken time for himself. Mom says there is always a chance you are going to get in hurt in whatever you do, but if my son sees you in your future, he will go in with his full heart. JoJo tells momma that she is falling in love with Robby!
Now momma and Robby are gonna chat. She tells us, that there are people saying things about Robby that he knows nothing about. She says, there is an issue out in the world, your ex’s room mate has made it look like that they broke up to go on the show. Naturally, Robby is upset, since JoJo has made it clear that this is a concern to her. He tells momma that he is in love with JoJo, and if this causes an issue he will be devastated, and doesn’t want to get heartbroken again!
He decides he needs to tell JoJo now, so he interrupts JoJo talking to the sisters. Robby tells JoJo that he just talked to his mom, and apparently there has been chatter out in the world. He tells her that people are saying he is not here for the right reasons. You can see she is worried. JoJo asks what is the benefit, for this room mate to bring up these things, and she asks if there is any truth to this. She of course says, just be honest, and tell me the truth.
She says, she cares about him so much, and this is devastating, since she was already questioning it. Robby says, that the relationship with his ex was over 9 months before it actually ended it. You can tell they are both deep in thought when they say good bye.
Luke – Texas
Luke tells us that this is the most important date that they will ever have.
JoJo tells us that they have such passion, but his silent confidence is so sexy. She of course wants to know what they are doing today, and he says there needs to be some surprises. She seems the most nervous for this one. They pull up and there are so many people.
Today JoJo is meeting his Mom and Dad, sister and 50 of his closest friends. She says it was overwhelming. Um yeah. Luke thanks everyone for being there, and sort of gets emotional. I like him.
Luke and his mom are chatting, she says she seems to love people and family, and thinks a lot of you!
Now Luke and his dad are talking. Dad says, she is beautiful, so friendly and engaging. Luke asks if there was a pivotal moment when he knew that mom was the one. He said he was busy, and had an overwhelming feeling that he couldn’t live without her. Dad says, where are you in that? Luke says, today is a pivotal moment for us! AWWWW. He said once he talks to her about how she felt today, and that if that is good, he will fully give her his heart. AWWW. Dad says, things like that shouldn’t feel pressured, but whatever choice you make, we will support you in what you want. Dad tells him that they trust and respect him, and he tearfully thanks him for his service to the country. AWWWWWW. They tell each other they love each other. AWWWW.
Hmmm can you tell who I like?
Now JoJo and Luke are sitting with a group of peeps. JoJo tells us that she sees how much love Luke has to give. Luke tells her that he has a surprise for her. They get on horses and JoJo flashes her crotch her white shorts. AWKWARD.
JoJo tells us, she has the most undeniable chemistry with Luke. Luke tells her, he looked over at her and he was so happy and that she looked so happy. Luke tells her that he sees their future, and it is scary, and he knows what he sees is real. She tearfully thanks him for such a good day.
How cute is he, he says he has another surprise. AWWW He leads her to this heart of petals in the grass, and he says all of the people that she met today have a big piece of his heart, but his heart is out there for her. He was tearful the whole time, it was really quite sweet.
The ceremony is at an airport hanger, and whomever gets a rose will jet set off to the next spot.
Robby shows up, and looks great. Who am I kidding they will all look great. Chase is up next, and yep looks fine. Luke is up next – yep he looks yum. It pains me to admit, Jordan even looks good.
JoJo shows up in a deep blue dress, that color is a great color for her. Chris asks JoJo if she knows what to do tonight, and she says she doesn’t know. She tells us that she is so connected to all of these guys, and can see a future with each of them. She is clearly emotional. WTF. She tells the camera that she needs to say goodbye to LUKE. WTF? I didn’t see that coming.
She grabs the first rose, DRAMATIC PAUSE.
Luke says, JoJo, can I talk to you for a second, and she says yes. The other guys are like, OH MY GOD. Jordan, naturally says, well they had a whole day to talk about things. Luke says he is the type of person that needs to get things off his chest. He said you know, how I told you my heart is yours. He said when you left, I felt like I needed to tell you that I am in love with you, and I didn’t tell you that night, and it is all I have thought about since then, and I wanted you to know that. He says, I don’t know how you felt leaving that night. She says, the one thing that you have wanted to hear from me, is what I have been wanting to hear from you, so thank you for telling me that.
JoJo walks away cursing, saying this changes things, is it enough? I have been wanting him to say this for so long. She tells us in her whole life she has never found one guy that made her feel this most happy and now she has four guys! She bawls and squats and we get a big fat: To be Continued? UGH I HATE THAT!!!
So we still have: Chase, Jordan, Robby and Luke
