The home visit episode began at the Highlands Ranch in Colorado where 2016 Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher met 27-year-old Medical Representative, Chase McNary and his father. Chase comes from a broken home. His parents divorced when he was 8 years old, and he was concerned that JoJo’s parents were still together, so maybe she might prefer to marry someone who did not come from a divorced family. His parents went through a nasty divorce, so as a result, Chase has trouble opening up. Chase had JoJo meet his father separately from the rest of the family so there would be no awkwardness.
Chase’s father had some special words for his son. He wanted his son to not spend too much of his time working. Chase didn’t spend as much time as he wanted to with his father. Chase wanted to spend some time alone with his dad.
JoJo and Chase then went to visit the rest of his family. She had a conversation with his mother. His mother knew right away that he had deep feelings for her. Chase told JoJo that he was falling in love with her.
Chase McNary’s Hometown: Highland Ranch, Colorado
When kids go through a divorce, maybe they shy away from being in a serious relationship and getting married, but he’s processed it all very well, not quickly, but very well. He’s done a great job of evolving and being happy.
Jordan Rodgers’ Hometown: Chico, California
JoJo said that her conversation was good and she wanted to have a mother-in-law like her.
Next, JoJo headed to Chico, California to meet Jordan Rodgers’ family. She gave him a huge hug when she saw him. Jordan, a 27-year-old former quarterback took JoJo to Pleasant Valley High School, Jordan’s old school. JoJo saw a picture of Aaron at the school. She pointed it out, but it was obvious that Jordan didn’t want to talk about it. He also told her that Aaron wasn’t a topic that was really up for discussion.
JoJo was the first woman that Jordan brought home who was a complete stranger to them. Jojo was very nervous to meet Jordan’s family. Jordan’s mother revealed that she called Jordan spicy, and he liked to threaten to runaway. Aaron wasn’t there, but his brother, Luke was there. Aaron didn’t want to be a part of the day, and wasn’t a big part of Jordan’s life
JoJo had a conversation with Jordan’s brother, Luke. Luke told JoJo that Jordan was crazy about her. Luke had a conversation with Jordan and told him that JoJo is going to make him happy, he supported their relationship. Even Jordan’s father said that JoJo and Jordan had a unique connection and he hadn’t seen his son so happy.
Jordan’s mother told him that he looked as though he was really happy and all lit up.
Robby Hayes Hometown: St. Augustine, Florida
JoJo went to St. Augustine Florida to visit Robby Hayes’ family. Robby had told JoJo that he loved her and he said that the best case scenario was if she told him that she loved him. They toured the town in a horse and carriage. JoJo revealed that Robby was the first guy that she was emotionally attached to him.
I’m having moments where I feel like I am falling in love with Robby, but then I’m also having moments when I feel conflicted.
JoJo was concerned about Robby’s ex-girlfriend Hope Higginbotham. Robby and his girlfriend had dated for almost four years, but they had just broken up about three months before the filming of the show.
..And I just need to make sure that that relationship is in his past and that door is shut.
Robby comes from a big family, so JoJo met his mother, father, Coach Hayes his younger sister Grace, other younger sister Katie, her husband, Tyler, and his two younger brothers, Michael and Patrick.
Robby told his brothers that he was in love with JoJo. You know how much sleep I’ve gotten this week? Zero. You know how many panic attacks I’ve had? A lot. It’s not fun, it’s scary, because it could end like that. If it does not work out, it would be heartbreaking. It will, but when it does work out it would be a fairytale ending, and I’m more than excited for years and years to come with this girl.
JoJo told Robby’s mother Holly that she was afraid that if they were to get together, maybe a year later, he would wish that he had taken more time for himself.
Everything was going well until Patrick’s mother, Holly, revealed to Robby that his ex’s roommate was saying that Robby broke up with her so he could be on the show.
Robby talked to JoJo about the situation and assured her that he did not break up with his ex to pursue the show. He said that their relationship was actually over months before he finally cut ties with his ex. They’d had a big argument.
JoJo said that Robby had been the most honest and the most real with his feelings. She decided to trust him.
Luke Pell’s Hometown: Burnet, Texas
JoJo then met Luke Pell’s family in Burnet, Texas. Luke a war veteran, wanted to know how she would feel about his family before he told her that she had his heart.
Besides this passion, this chemistry that I have with Luke, there’s this silent confidence that he has, that he’s so attracted to me. Luke had almost all of Burnet Texas in his backyard to meet them. JoJo was extremely nervous, especially when she saw all of the people, but then she started to feel more comfortable. Luke presented JoJo with flowers on the lawn in the shape of a heart. The gesture was romantic, but he didn’t tell her that he loved her, which is what JoJo wanted to hear. She wanted to know more about the romantic connection that Luke felt for her.
Luke told his father that the day was pivotal, because he wanted to get feedback from his family. He also wanted to know that JoJo loved him.
Once I know that, I am ok with saying, JoJo here’s my heart, and here’s all of me, and I’m falling for you. This is how I feel.
Luke’s father told him that if he made the choice to tell JoJo that he was falling in love with her, they would support him. JoJo had a bright outdoor picnic with Luke’s family.
Luke and JoJo spent some time together alone and he shared with her that she had his heart. As they were kissing, and before she said goodbye to him to prepare for the rose ceremony, JoJo told Luke that she was going to miss him. Was this foreshadowing who she planned to eliminate?
When it was time for the rose ceremony, Luke stopped JoJo and asked her to go away with him to an area that was a little more private. The rose ceremony took place right near a plane, so the final two would be whisked away with JoJo.
Luke told JoJo that he was falling in love with her, and that devastated her, probably because she was leaning toward eliminating him.
This is the hardest decision that I’ve had to make, but I think I know what I need to do, and I think I need to say goodbye to Luke.
So when Luke told her that he was falling in love with her, that changed everything. JoJo didn’t know if it was too late for them to step in the direction towards marriage. She didn’t know whether she’d be making a big mistake if she eliminated him. Torn between her emotions, JoJo sat on the airplane runway in a glamorous royal blue dress and cried.
