Chris Harrison Blogs The Bachelorette Hometown Dates

This week we finally made our way back to America, as Rachel zig-zagged across thecountry to meet the families of her final four men: Eric, Bryan, Peter, and Dean. 

Hometown dates are always some of my favorite on the show, because getting to seewhere someone grew up and meeting the people that know them the best never fails to beeye-opening. Even if you don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye with your family, and even ifyou’re not particularly close with them as an adult, they tend to have a strong sense of you as a person and are usually able to provide context for what exactly they’re going to be like in a relationship — and more importantly, why they’ll be like that. 

Before getting into it, more than anything I want to extend my thanks on behalf of the entire Bachelorette team to each of these families for opening their homes to us. Of course we try to make it as fun and exciting as possible, but obviously it’s also a pressure-filled situation, so we really appreciate the kindness the families extend to our crew. In fact,usually the families are so nice that they offer to cook meals for the crew or find them aplace to stay. While we know there’s nothing like Mom’s lasagna, we have to humblydecline because we want the families to spend what little time they have focusing on the relationship that needs their attention. But anyway, I just want to say thanks to all the momsand dads and sisters and brothers and grandmas who make hometowns such a fun experience for the entire Bachelor family. 

Rather than going through each man’s hometown, I think it’s interesting this week to look ateach man’s individual story that they bring to the table. Eric has never really brought a woman home to his family and has never felt the kind of love he believes is out there. Bryanhas let love lead him before and been brought to his knees by it. Peter is afraid to let lovelead him and is being careful not to fall too quickly. And Dean has other people in his life, like his family, who he has issues with that he needs to address.
