Bringing Home the Canadian Bacon

Last week on The Bachelorette, Jillian sent home Robby, Jake, and Tanner after a train ride through Canada.

Now Jillian has 5 of her original 30 men left, and it's time for her to visit their hometowns and meet their families.

This is always an interesting episode, because you get to see where everyone comes from. And then inevitably realize that 10 minutes with their folks isn't really enough by which to judge this 2-dimensional reality character you don't really know anyway, and also that all of the families of everyone on The Bachelor(ette) are polite, charming, slightly demanding upper middle class people itching for grandchildren so badly that they're willing to project their dinner rituals on national TV. Let's see if this batch holds true to form.

First up is: Reid in Philadelphia.

Reid starts off his date by giving Jill the ol' "two hands holding burning hot coffees behind your back" hug. They sit down and chat, and share the most awkward kiss ever had since we invented the thing.

Jillian then meets Reid's family (his parents and 2 brothers), and hears all about how she could fit into their real estate family business. Reid's mom Rhonda then sits down Jillian for a heart-to-heart about Reid (he's cautious, but it's a good thing). His brothers have their turn with Jillian (not in THAT way, ew, you guys) and say they think Reid is still single because he's afraid (or has been afraid) of commitment until now. Reid asks for fatherly advice, and his pop Larry tells him to jump in if it seems like a good idea. Fair enough. Unfortunately for Reid, these waters are infested with reality TV sharks and music-promoting snakes. But he's willing to risk it anyway.
