Hubba Hubba! Hunky Bachelor wins over Lisa's family
MEETING the potential in-laws is stressful enough without having a camera crew in tow.
The Bachelor, Blake Garvey, faced a grilling from the parents of four women in last night's episode of the reality dating show.
While he spilled a drink on Queenslander Louise's father, Garvey made a much better impression on Lisa Hyde's tight-knit Noosa family.
"Everyone got on like a house on fire," Hyde told The Daily.
"He felt comfortable around my family. He made a few jokes and my family was like, 'Oh yeah he's a good guy'.
"I did mention that he would be the second guy I've brought home and not to break my heart, because I was hoping he would be the last."
For Hyde's Coast homecoming, she and Garvey arrived at her parents' waterfront home by kayak. The lovebirds also spent time frolicking in the water at a Noosa beach.
"I think he could see my lifestyle growing up was quite similar to his," she said.
"Being from Perth he was always around that beachy lifestyle."
While Lisa's mum, Anne, welcomed Garvey with open arms, father John was a little more cautious.
"My dad did grill him with a few questions," Lisa said. "I think it's normal for any father to want the best for his daughter.
"He wanted to make sure Blake wasn't going to break my heart.
"He wanted to know where he was at."
Garvey also passed the important "sister test", gaining the approval of Lisa's older sister, Sarah.
"Sarah is three years older and I look up to her so much," Lisa said. "I always ask for her opinion. She said that she really liked him and could see me with him, which is such a big thing for me.
"I value her opinion so much."
Hyde is one of three women still in the running for Garvey's heart after the unexpected elimination last night of favourite Jessica.
The final two episodes of The Bachelor air on Wednesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
