The limo pulls up to the home of Brooke's aunt and uncle. It's a pretty nice red brick affair with a sort of colonial look to it. It looks relatively new, though, or else they keep it in really, really good shape. Aaron meets Brooke's mom (Sharron) and stepdad, then aunt (Dot) and uncle (Randy), and various other friends and family members. Every single woman is blonde. Dot and Randy blather on about how Randy told Dot when they first met that he was going to marry her. And then she got a restraining order. No, that's not true; five months later they were married. They've been together nearly forty years. Dot tells us that she sees that same "glow" in Brooke that she saw in herself when she first fell for Randy. Everybody agrees that Brooke looks happy. Randy asks Aaron if he's into NASCAR. Aaron says he's not. Randy says that if you get into NASCAR, it's like "a fine wine. Once you taste the fine wine, you don't want the $3 stuff." What exactly would the $3 wine equivalent of car racing be -- watching your kid's soapbox derby? And you've got to love the editors for including this comment just to make Brooke's family look trashy, even though it looks like they've got more money than any of the other bachelorettes. They're trying to make them look like the Clampetts. I guess that would make Aaron a good addition, because he's such a total Jethro, but that would mean he's marrying his sister. You can insert your own inbreeding joke here.
John David reveals to Aaron that they were all fans of The Bachelor last season, and that it was Brooke's own mom who suggested that she call in to try to get on the show. I believe I recall suggesting a couple of weeks ago that a family's support of their child trying to win a contest to land a husband would be far worse than their rejection. I'm glad to see that I'm right. Mom tells us that Brooke has a lot to offer a husband, like good looks, good looks, good looks, good looks, and nice breasts. So she encouraged Brooke to apply to be on the show.
For Aaron's visit, the family has set up a big, fancy Southern buffet. Oh, how I miss Southern food. I don't, however, miss the fifteen pounds I gained from eating Southern food while I lived in South Carolina. Partly because I'm still trying to get rid of them three years later. The family members (and Aaron) all say grace before eating, because it's the South, y'all. John David thanks Jesus for Aaron and Brooke and asks him to help them "endure" what they're going through. He gives a little laugh, so I don't think he's serious about this prayer. Thank Jesus for that as well. Man, there are flowers on every flat surface and in all the wallpaper patterns. My sinuses are acting up just from watching.
