Kaitlyn and her two guys are back in LA, ready to meet the whole fam-dam-ily.
|Her mom and sister after she told them that Nick was one of the two finalists|
Nick gets to meet the family first. Kaitlyn breaks the news to her family that they did the nasty, and then tells Nick that she told him, so he's super nervous. He attempts to squeeze in on a couch that even my 9-year-old wouldn't have fit on. Seriously, I think he only has half a butt cheek on there.
Kaitlyn's mother is brutally honest, and says that Nick was an arrogant, possessive d-bag. Nick owns up to all these accusations, and even breaks down into tears, The family is won over.
I am suddenly annoyed by Kaitlyn's too loud laugh.
Shawn meets the family next, and it's actually pretty dull.The family loves Shawn. Kaitlyn's sister announces that she is on "Team Shawn." You and me both, sister.
Nick and Shawn are each allowed one final date with Kaitlyn. Nick is first. They spend the day out on the water and then have dinner. He then lures Kaitlyn up to to his room under the pretense that he got her "a gift." It's a picture of the two of them on their first date, along with his thoughts about the evening.
Girls, he spelled "energy" wrong. I'm not sure that I could consider marrying someone who can't spell a third grade spelling word.
Why yes, I am shallow.
Shawn is next. They have a beautifully romantic lunch in the middle of a vineyard. Their conversation is super awkward. Why wasn't it awkward with Nick?
In the evening, one thing stands out to me: She tells Shawn not to watch the show back. She wanted to
Shawn gave Kaitlyn a "memory jar," filled with little mementos of all of their dates together. This is so sweet and romantic.... do the guys come up with it themselves? Does a producer tell them what to do? The Agent considers himself a romantic, and he has never done anything even remotely like this.
Neil Lane helps BOTH guys pick out rings. This gives Nick hope, because last season, it was Andi at the door instead of Neil Lane, and Andi was breaking up with him.
Kaitlyn is stringing someone along at this point.
Because it appears this is a budget year, they guys are sent back to the mansion, where it all began.
Nick steps out first.
Nick spouts off about love and rainbows and unicorns, AND SHE NEVER STOPS HIM.
Nick is honest in his response, and hurt.... as he should be. He is heartbroken... again. He says he is the world's biggest joke.
Poor Nick. I have never liked him more than I do right now.
Ok, now on to the guy she really loves.
She gives it away from the very beginning by kissing him.
He loves her. She loves him. He asked her. She said yes.
