BURNING LOVE: Episode 11 - Hometown Dates

Burning Love (Yahoo! Originals)

ABC's "The Bachelorette" is back this summer with its umpteenth season. Wait, how many couiples have lasted so far? But before you give up on the dating serial,  Yahoo! Originals throws its hose into the fire with the premiere of "Burning Love," executive produced by Ben Stiller. Sure it's scripted, but with Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black and the funniest comediennes taking their turn as marriage material to a TV hunk, it's more entertaining.

 

While every other bentertainment publication has "The Bachelorette" covered, On Demand Weekly's dating show expert Kate Asche Wilson will breakdown each episode as if she were right there in the mansion. 

 

 

BURNING LOVE: Episode 11 - Hometown Dates

 

I think I’m contractually obligated to propose to somebody.

Hometown dates! Oh how I love hometown dates. Seeing the horrified faces of all your family members when you tell them you’ve fallen in love with a douchebag on national TV. Nothing can ever replace that.

In episode eleven of “Burning Love” Mark visits the families of his three remaining bachelorettes. On the real Bachelor hometowns are always the best episodes because you can see the progression from “I’ll love her forever, and we’ll run in fields of daisies together” to “Holy shit no”. “Burning Love” captures the true essence of this, and we find Mark in an even bigger pickle than he was in before.

The first family Mark meets is Annie’s. He starts out strong by unapologetically insulting both her Mother and Father, but really shines when he forgets Annie’s name when talking with her brother. Annie admits that she is worried how her brother, Jake Pavelka, will react to Mark, and this whole crazy process. Why is she so worried audience? Maybe we should ask Vienna.

After Mark sparkles on his hometown with Annie he now must win over Titi’s family. Luckily Mark admits to her family that he is falling in love with her (as well as the two other women) and that puts their fears to rest. Unfortunately Titi expresses her concerns with lesbian Carly, and Mark does not appreciate her candidness. On the real Bachelor when a bachelorette expresses concerns because someone in the house has conflicting feelings, or is a slut, they get kicked off the show. At least Mark got a Rolex out of it! Winning.

The last family Mark is introduced too is Carly’s. Mo Gaffney (That 70’s show) guest stars as Carly’s mother who is brash and insensitive to Carly, but can truly see that she has really fallen for Mark. Carly is a lesbian, and has not fallen for Mark. These are lies.

Shockingly, to no one, Titi is sent home. Complaining about a fellow bachelorette is the kiss of death Titi. Shame on you for not knowing that.

My Prediction:

 

I repeat Titi’s sentiment that Mark might be partially retarded. He might be Titi. He just might.

Will Jake Pavelka believe in the Bachelor process again? Will Titi’s father get his Rolex back? And will Mark ever discover that Carly’s a lesbian? Watch the next episode of “Burning Love” to find out.
