okay, I will play.
I think meeting the parents is important, especially the mothers. Often girls grow up to be their mothers, and it seems that this season's final 4 have some wacky mothers.
Hometown #1 - Shayne
2 visits, first with papa Lorenzo. He pushes to find out what Matt has up for his daughter. Seems to go well. Second visit is with Shayne mom. OMG! freaky looking lady in a freaky apartment. Run. Run like the wind. And hope that the mother's lips don't catch you!!
Hometown #2 - Chelsey
Seems like a regular family. Both mom and dad seem like nice people. But are they too boring to leave an impression?
Hometown #3 - Noelle
Starts with horseback riding in the mountains. Fun. Really down-to-earth family. Beautiful post & bean country house. Wow. Similar to #2, but I would give Noelle the lead at this point.
Hometown #4 - Amanda
Fake mom and fake dad to punk Matt. Brilliant. Especially the fake mom hitting on Matt. I just can't imagine what would be going through my mind if that happened to me. Now fake dad is angry with Matt for kissing fake mom. Amanda lets him off the hook, and he is blown away to get faked out. We barely met her real family, but this was her showing that she is fun. Looks like a pretty intimate kiss. She should win on this alone.
