Previously on The Bachelor
, the final five bachelorettes went to Seattle to visit Jason in his pretend-houseboat (that is to say, it's a real houseboat, but probably not his since he actually lives in Kirkland, across the lake from Seattle). But this week on The Bachelor
, the positions are reversed: Jason gets to visit the homes of Jillian
begins with Jason saying good-bye to Ty once again. Poor kid. He's probably all disoriented, having to pretend to live in a houseboat and say good-bye to his dad for long stretches of time.
Jason muses on his six-week history with the four remaining women, beginning with Jillian. He interviews that their relationship started out really fun and light-hearted, but last week, he started getting concerned that she might not be as into him as he is into her. He says something preposterous about Molly next, like, he is glad that she trusted him enough to jump at the chance to spend the night with him, during their date in the tent on the front lawn. What? Yeah, I don't get that either.
Jason thinks that Naomi's best quality is her openness, but he's concerned that she might not be ready for his lifestyle. (The thing that is making this opening sequence ridiculous is that you can totally tell that Jason is reading his voiceovers off of cue cards. I bet the producers of The Bachelor
are dictating all the pros and cons about the four women to him.) And then there's Melissa. He really likes her, but he's concerned that she might be too perfect.
Jason travels up to the Great White North to visit Jillian and her family first. He heads across the border to Kelowna, British Columbia. Jillian was born in northern Alberta, and then moved to Kelowna when she was 4 or 5. She brings Jason up to a view point above Lake Okanagan and tells him about the Loch Ness-type monster named Ogopogo that is purported to reside in the lake. I'm fairly certain that after this visit, we will all come to realize that Canadians totally rock and should rule the world, and that Canada (specifically British Columbia) is the most beautiful place on earth.
Jillian takes Jason to a winery that was built in volcanic rock. It's really neat on the inside. They settle inside with glasses of wine in front of a fireplace, and Jillian tells him about her family drama. Her mother was diagnosed with severe depression for 15 years, which has caused her and her whole family a lot of difficulty. She breaks down in tears as she tells him. Fortunately, her mother has gotten better recently, and her parents' relationship has survived all of the hard times. Jason kisses her, and is pleased at how much she was willing to open up.
Jillian takes Jason home, and her dad drapes him with a huge Canadian flag. Her parents are there, as well as her cousin and her cousin's boyfriend. They sit down to dinner, and her cousin asks him how he's dealing with having to dump women and break hearts. Jillian's mother, Peggy, gives a rhyming toast to her daughter, breaking down in tears while doing so. (Funny! She rhymes "again" with "grain," just like a Canadian!)
