Brad took two women to meet his family; his mom Shelley, his younger brother Wesley and his identical twin Chad. DeAnna was first to arrive at his door. He forewarned them that she's a strong independent woman from Atlanta, Georgia. Brad joked about having his future wife as an employee because she used to be a bartender when she was just college-aged. It went very well. His mom talked to her about family values, relationship values and her feelings for him. Shelly stated she could see that Brad really like DeAnna. He kept holding her waist and gazing at her. The brothers think she's a great catch. DeAnna felt awesome because Brad was just his old confident, playful self with his folks. They were hanging out by the pool fooling around. DeAnna revealed that they are kind, friendly, warm and put her at ease. After she left, the family discussed his situation while waiting for Jenni. DeAnna had made such a great impression that it's gonna be a high stake for Jenni to make them change their mind about whom they think would complement Brad.
Jenni arrived later. His mom asked her about where they are at, she admitted she hadn't dropped the L word yet. Not that she's scared to be vulnerable but she just wanted it to say it when the time felt right. She, too, felt stronger for him each day and wanted to be with him. She then went out to play catch with his brothers. They're both wonderful, eligible women. Brad told his mom that he thinks about DeAnna when he's with Jenni and vice versa. He loves them both. One possesses the appeal that the other didn't.
He tries to make up his mind. He felt slightly stronger for DeAnna. But in the end, when DeAnna really thought that they'll be in a monogamous relationship because she's the last one standing, he told her that he couldn't marry her. He had a reason that he sent Jenni home but he couldn't find a reason for DeAnna. He only told her that he wasn't sure if their relationship was going to last, he's not fully there with her. He was not that deeply into either of them.
He fell for 23-year-old Sarah Newlon more deeply than anybody else in the beginning but she was disqualified for not recognizing his twin brother. That incident made him think she isn't into him as much as he's into her and he was so hurt; he wasn't willing to compromise. Neither of these two ladies was the ultimate frontrunner. Both ladies went home heartbroken.
