‘The Bachelorette’ Episode Guide (July 18): JoJo Meets The Families of the Bachelors

“Episode 1208” (07/18/16) – JoJo’s emotionally charged, whirlwind world tour to find love comes back to the U.S. as she travels across country to visit Chase, Jordan, Luke and Robby.

Her spirit and resilience is about to be tested by the men and their loved ones, as she tries to figure out if she can love more than one man at a time.

Are all these bachelors ready to be married? JoJo will try and find out from the people who know them best, as she moves closer to making her fairytale come true, on “The Bachelorette,” MONDAY, JULY 18 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

JoJo starts her hometown visits on a snowcapped mountaintop in Colorado, where Chase waits for her. He anxiously reveals to JoJo that because of his parents’ acrimonious divorce, she will be meeting his parents separately. Her emotional conversation with his father offers her a much deeper understanding into this bachelor and why he has been so slow to reveal his feelings for her. After JoJo meets the rest of Chase’s family, including his mother, will he decide to take their relationship to new level or will it be too late?

Next, JoJo travels to Chico, California, to visit Jordan’s home. He takes her on a nostalgic trip down memory lane to his old high school, where JoJo is shocked to learn what kind of young man Jordan used to be. Then, it is on to meet his family. Will she find warmth and support from them, and what will they reveal about this handsome guy?

JoJo then heads to Florida for a fun day of exploring St. Augustine’s historic downtown district with Robby. During an idyllic seaside lunch, JoJo attempts to find out if Robbie is really over his last long-term relationship that ended three months before. But how hollow will his claims of love be when his mother shares the news that there is gossip being spread about him and his intentions with JoJo? Will she be able to trust this man with her heart?

For her final hometown visit, JoJo journeys to the tiny town of Burnet, Texas, where she spends the day with Luke. The unsuspecting Bachelorette doesn’t realize that she is not just meeting the war veteran’s family, but practically the whole town. After a great day, Luke is so thrilled with how well JoJo fits in that he plans a special romantic scenario to express his feelings for her. But did he go far enough to secure another rose?

Now, after an extremely emotional week, JoJo faces the most important rose ceremony so far. And once again, she struggles with whom to send home. She finally faces her final four men, ready to make her incredibly painful choice. However, she is interrupted by one of the men with an unexpected confession, but how will this change her decision?

The four remaining men are:

– Chase, 27, a medical sales representative from Highlands Ranch, CO
– Jordan, 27, a former pro quarterback, Chico, CA
– Luke, 31, a war veteran from Burnet, TX
– Robert “Robby,” 27, a former competitive swimmer from Jacksonville, FL

Scalettar and Nicole Woods are the executive producers. “The Bachelorette” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 stereo surround sound.
