It’s always an adventure when it comes to hometown dates — and this season’s was no different. But first was first: who would Chris send home before going home?
Chris Soules couldn’t meet everyone’s family and didn’t hesitate to send two ladies packing before the first commercial this week. I mean, there was a lot to get through this week — he visited four cities, heard the L-bomb, and yes, saw Jade Roper‘s nude Playboy photos.
Bye Bye Britt
Chris took Becca to his loft for their date, and they kissed in front of the sunset (basically a photo op), but that date only got about five minutes of air time. The main dramz was going down at the house where Britt was having a serious break down. ICYMI, after she told Chris she wanted to marry him and he didn’t give her the rose, she flipped out in front of the other girls. Now, she had decided in her head that she was (almost) 100% sure that she didn’t want to bring him home to meet her family. However, she wouldn’t get a chance to tell him at a cocktail party, since there wouldn’t be one.
While Chris was about to start giving out his roses, she pulled him aside, and apologized, sort of, then asked if there was anything he wanted to say — basically giving him the chance to apologize for not giving her the rose. Instead, he didn’t. He told her the girls had been calling her fake, she figured it out it was Carly, and seemed more hurt about that than the fact that she was going home. So back to the rose ceremony.
Kaitlyn already had a rose, so it was time for the rest: first Whitney, then Becca, then JADE. Yes, even though he told Britt he loved that Carly spoke up and that was what he looked for in a wife, he apparently wasn’t saying that she is what he looked for in a wife.
Heading Home With The Final 4
Becca is first and basically it’s hesitation everywhere. She’s never brought a guy home before so of course, her family is definitely worried. And, they’re worried about what will happen when they get to the fantasy suite. But she does admit that she’s kind of falling in love with him on a romantic ferris wheel ride.
Next is Whitney, who takes Chris to make a baby — at the clinic, obviously. Yes, she shows him “the man room” where you get a cup and a Playboy. (No, that’s not how he found out about Jade’s past). After showing him her job, Whit brought Chris to meet her family, and her very protective sister who didn’t give Chris her blessing to propose, but instead told him to call her when she was sure Whit was the one, not just one of the final four.
Kaitlyn’s hometown date was third — and started behind a dumpster. She took him into a recording studio to record a rap, which was absolutely hilarious and adorable. After meeting her family, she wanted to tell him she “hearts” him, so she had it written on a big screen outside. It was definitely very cute and a step in the right direction!
The Naked Truth
Naturally, ABC kept Jade’s hometown date for last, and it was worth it — she finally told Chris about her Playboy past. I mean she had to, because her dad and brothers almost did! Her dad did tell her he wanted her to find someone who loved her for who she was, and he even cried!
Anyway back to the P bomb. Not only did she tell Chris, but she showed him that past on her laptop. They looked at the pics and the NSFW video (which you can watch here). However, he was a perfect gentleman, and told her that sure, it’s a different side of her but she’s a beautiful woman and it doesn’t change his feelings.
(Oh and this was his reaction.)
So, who did he send home? Whitney received the first rose, then Kaitlyn . . . and Becca. Yes, Jade was sadly sent home. Was it because of the nude pics? He said no, but let us know what you thought, HollywoodLifers.
