Chris heads down to make sure dad isn’t giving her the “creepy old man adjustment” he’s been known to
give some of his past girlfriends, and saves Des…or appears to save Des. In reality he wants an
adjustment of his own! But this is not your regular back alignment; Chris opts for a nose adjustment?
Chris’s dad pulls out this hand pump with literally a 3-inch-long wad of gauze attached to the end. He
shoves the gauze into Chris’s nostril and starts pumping. “This adjustment will give you more clarity,”
Creepster Dad emphasizes. All I can see is a big ol’ booger string, with EXTREME clarity! Creepster Dad
then mentions, “Des really should come get the nose adjustment so she can have some clarity for her
decision.” At this point I’m dying to see a Bachelorette booger blowout, but alas my dreams are dashed
and Des is shuffled onto Chris’s overprotective mother.
Chris is talking with his siblings and discovers that none of his family members liked the last girl he
brought home. “Grandma especially thought she was wrong for you,” Chris’s sister informs him. This
comes as a huge surprise to Chris, and it’s a good thing Chris’s nasal passages are all cleared out because
he looks so upset he could snot-rocket grandma right on the spot! He and the rest of America are
wondering why his family has waited until now to tell him this information? Are you trying to throw a
brotha off man!
This hometown is approaching burying-a-dead-pigeon levels of weirdness, and gets even more awkward
with Des’s meeting with Chris’s mom. “I just really hope my mom likes Des right from the beginning,”
Chris says. Chris takes her mom aside to get the low down on Des. “You guys aren’t in the real world,” Creepster
Mom says, “Do you feel she’s stronger as a person, as an individual?” The grilling continues, “What’s
going to happen in the real world?”
In the end Creepster Mom stoically says, “Well I like her…you have my blessing.” Chris is elated, but one
has to wonder how the family really feels about Des and when Chris will find out?
Time for Brooks’s hometown! Des starts the date by dropping the L word again to Bachelor nation. Does
she not know the rules of Bachelorette? She seems really smitten by Brooks and isn’t afraid to let him
We’re in Salt Lake City for Brooks and Des’s date which begs the question: Are we going to have 2 SLC
winners in a row?
Brooks receives a lot of advice from his siblings and their spouses, “Can you make her happy for the rest
of her life? If she were out of your life, what would you go through to get her back? When you’re apart,
do you miss her more than anyone else in your life?” Brooks’s family is very impressed with Des, to the
point that Brooks’s mom pulls him aside and gives him her blessing for marriage Des ends the hometown dates with a flight back to the mansion in Los Angeles. Des next meets with the star of last season’s “Bachelor”, the “Playboy” himself her little brother. She tells Bachelor Nation that
