Desiree Hartsock Warns Juan Pablo Galavis: Beware of the Hometown Dates!
If anyone knows firsthand that Hometown Dates can go horribly, horribly (should we use a few more?) wrong, it’s reigning Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock, whose brother Nate was not on Team Sean Lowe when she brought him home. So it only makes sense that Des — a.k.a. the patron saint of Hometown cautionary tales — would have some words of wisdom for current Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis about next week’s looming family meet-and-greets.
We’ve been getting hints that there will be some serious tension during Juan Pablo’s Hometowns with some (all?) of the ladies’ families, as there is going to be plenty of skepticism about El Bachelor to go around the table/country. And as Desiree writes in her Bachelor blog, family members are likely to have no problem expressing their thoughts during those dates, whether you want to hear them or not.
“I enjoyed [this week’s] episode, and I’m looking forward to finding out what happens at each hometown,” Des writes. “If you ever saw my hometown date during Sean’s season, then you know that anything can happen, and family members don’t always have filters when it comes to what they feel is best for their daughter/ sister.”
See, people? “No filter” isn’t just a hashtag — it’s also a way of life, particularly when your loved one is concurrently dating three other people. And according to Chris Harrison, Clare Crawley’s family is going to be all aboutthat way of life. #haterade
But while we were kinda upset about Nate for inexplicably bashing Sean as a player (fun fact: Sean was recently named the “Most Un-Playery Person Ever” by an organization that we just made up), Sean is clearly meant forCatherine Giudici. And hey, we’re loving Des and Chris Siegfried together! So there you go: Nate’s meddling ended up paying off. Now, let’s see if Clare’s family’s does too...
Do you think the ladies’ families are right to be skeptical of Juan Pablo?
