      Nick begins the week of meeting the family with Raven in Hoxie, AK.  They begin their date with four-wheeling in the swamp and mud.  They go on top of a grain cell but they police come and it turns out to be Raven’s brother.  They then go to meet the parents and her mom breaks the news that her dad is cancer free.  Everyone liked each other and her parents were happy that Raven was happy and they could seen that.  

      Dallas, TX was next on the list for when Nick visits Rachel.  She takes him to a black church and then went to meet her mom, two sisters and brother-in-law.  The questions of dating a different race and if he has ever done something like this before arises but he answered that Rachel is why and her personality.  

      Corinne’s hometown is next and they meet at a shopping mall in Miami, FL.  She shows him a life in the day of Corinne and that includes spending $3000 and not even flinching, and go home to a penthouse suite in her hotel.  Before they meet the family Corinne tells Nick that she loves him and is relieved that she finally said it.  Nick meets her mom, dad, sister and her nanny.  Her dad was very skeptical with the fact that he is meeting three other families but at the end of the night he is happy with Nick.  

      His last hometown was Montreal, Canada to meet all of Vanessa’s family.  Her older sister is very concerned that he will break her heart and discussed that matter with him but is still worried about the process.  They leave the big family party so Nick can meet her dad and stepmom.  When Nick asked for his blessing to possibly propose to Vanessa he said no because he asked the same question to the other three families, Vanessa hears about Nick and then feels extremely skeptical and if she still wants him.  

      The rose ceremony is held in New York City when Andi, Nick’s ex-girlfriend and the first girl to break his heart, shows up unannounced.
