In Wichita, Kansas, Brad meets Jennis family, where Jenni shows off her dance moves while the couple discusses a prickly topic -- Brads reticence about long distance relationships and how to reconcile her Phoenix Suns dancing career with his Austin business empire. Then Jennis mother, a hair stylist, gives Brad a thorough shampooing at her salon, grilling him about his feelings for Jenni while hes trapped for the "big rinse." If that werent enough, Jennis father and grandmother continue the onslaught, taking turns putting Brad through the ringer.
Brad then travels to Concord, California, for a day of boating on the lake with Sheena and her parents. The family loves Brad so much that Sheenas mother makes it clear that she is already planning the wedding. The day ends when Brad and Sheena escape to the hot tub for some alone time.
Next, the Bachelor is off to Canton, Georgia, for a big, fat Greek greeting with DeAnnas family � complete with ouzo, music and dancing. Although her father, step-mother, brother and sister are there to party, theres one family member missing. In a touching moment, DeAnna introduces Brad to her mother -- who died when DeAnna was twelve -- through pictures.
In Washington, DC, Brad has a tumultuous confrontation with Bettinas disapproving family. Bettinas protective father is disappointed that Brad did not go to college, and her step-mother has concerns about Brad owning a bar business. When the couple spends some quiet time at the Jefferson Memorial talking over the days events, it leads to an argument. Will this quarrel put their relationship in jeopardy?
