The Bachelorette Episode Recap: Week 8

On this week of The Bachelorette, it's finally time for the hometown dates! These are the four dates that had Ali in a tizzy all during last week's episodes and who can blame her? Like in real life - which this show rarely ever is - meeting the family can make or break the romantic connections.


Ali travels to Tampa to visit Roberto and she's pretty much so smitten over him that all he has to do is stand there and be charming. So, of course, he goes and puts on a baseball uniform (complete with tight shorts) to play baseball with Ali. She dons one of his old jerseys to practice hitting and fielding and they seem to have a blast on the diamond. Throughout the date, they are very comfortable and easygoing with each other. The two sit on the mound for a breather and Roberto gives Ali one of his old baseball cards from when he played for her hometown team. "Roberto, you're smoking hot," she squeals with delight.

Talk moves towards the family date later in the evening and Ali says she's nervous because she doesn't know anything about his family. Roberto says his mom is passive, but his dad, an ex-Army ranger, is pretty tough (insert big, flashing warning sign here). Later that night, Ali goes to Roberto's house to meet the family, including his dad, mom, sister, brother and sister-in-law. Ali seems to make a very good impression, but Roberto says he's most nervous about his dad. Roberto Sr. says he knows his son is a "big price" and knows that Ali will be happy with him, but wants to know he will be happy with Ali. Aka, why is this crazy reality TV chick good enough for my son?
