The Bachelorette viewers have spoken their minds about the Hometown dates and how Justin Glaze was forced to call on his friends to support him after his family declined his invitation to meet Katie Thurston.

During the series August 2 interview, Katie met the families of her final three contestants: Justin, Blake Moynes, and Greg Grippo. These family moments were to assist The Bachelorette lead in making her final decision as to which man she would end her tenure on the show with.

While Greg and Blake’s families attended, Justin was faced with a distinctly different scenario.

Upon calling his parents to tell them of the titular moment in his relationship with Katie, he learned they would not attend Hometowns.

“You and dad aren’t here and obviously I wish you could come and meet her, and obviously it would have been good to see you guys,” said Justin during a telephone call with his mother. “It’s just hard to give a glimpse into part of me that’s very important, and I’ve got nothing to show. Think about how that makes me feel.”

“I just find it difficult to understand how anyone could get to know someone in this short period of time to want to propose,” Justin’s mother responded. “You have to be mindful of not only getting to know a person, but that individual’s family, because all of those things are important in a marriage and in a relationship.”
