'The Bachelorette' 2022: Fans cringe as Rachel and Zach watch themselves make out in a tub in front of family
Fans feel second-hand embarassment for Rachel and Zach as they sit through akward home movie of them making out
ORANGE CITY, CALIFORNIA: Season 19 of ABC's 'The Bachelorette' is well underway, and viewers could expect lots of drama during hometowns. But they weren't expecting any more awkward family moments, especially with Patrick Warburton in the home.
On Monday, August 22, when 'The Bachelorette' hometowns aired, Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey learned more about where their guys are from. Previous seasons of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' only featured one lead, but Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey are at the forefront of 'The Bachelorette' Season 19. The lead usually takes their top four contestants on hometown dates. The lead gets to meet the contestant's family and friends and learn more about their upbringing. With two leads in Season 19 of 'The Bachelorette,' hometowns look significantly different.
Zach was mindful to take Rachel on a date before taking her home to visit his family, to cement his earlier revelation that he is falling in love with her. Just as in Amsterdam, the two hopped on two bikes and rode to the spot Zach had set for them. Given that Rachel has already taken Zach on two one-on-one dates, it is now up to him to ensure that she has the finest hometown date possible. He brings him to a rooftop overlooking an airplane hangar - this is the story the two exchanged on their first date about watching airplanes fly with their fathers when they were kids.
At Zach's house, everyone awaits the couple. Zach's mother, father, sister, aunt, and celebrity uncle Patrick Warburton all gather to hear how the two met, their first date, and how they feel for each other. Zach's father, Chapman, sits down with Rachel to discuss the couple's expectations of one another. Zach's father wanted to make sure that Zach and Rachel's dates and the places they got to see weren't the only reasons they clicked. Rachel admits that the two got close because of their love for their families.
Zach informs his mother, Megan, that he has already professed his feelings for Rachel and sees a future with her. His mother, on the other hand, is concerned about the other boys in the mix. Megan approaches Rachel to learn what distinguishes Zach from the other guys and how she does not want to see her son's heartbroken. After a thorough conversation, the family gathers to see the most embarrassing moment imaginable on a hometown date. The show made sure to play their date and heated moments from those dates in front of the family, much like the two had home videos played for them on their first date!
As fans enjoyed the first half of the hometown date and most of the family conversations, they couldn't help out but criticize the show for airing that part of the date. A viewer wrote on Twitter: "Not another super cut of these two! Why do they have to watch them makeout in hot tub??? #TheBachelorette." Talking about how embarassing that must have been, another fan tweeted: "If someone projected my hot tub makeout to my parents as I sit there with the person I made out with, I think I’d simply pass away #TheBachelorette." Also, the Yosef's daughter jokes were back with fans tweeting: "How dare they show their hot tub makeout date when Yosef's daughter could be watching #TheBachelorette." For a first time meeting with the family situation turned into such embarassing situation, made fans comment: "Meeting his family for the first time is anxiety provoking enough. Add watching our makeout sesh on a full screen zoomed in? I would cease to exist #TheBachelorette."
