Check out these sneak peek clips of Sean’s hometown dates on the next episode of “The Bachelor,” airing Monday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

For Lindsay’s hometown date, Sean is put through his paces by the diminutive bachelorette, whose father is a general in the U.S. Army. At least it’s so chilly he’s not shirtless, right?

Then with AshLee’s family, her dad talks to Sean about when he met AshLee as a four-year-old when they were looking to adopt a child. He gets choked up, saying he fell in love with her on the spot and … is it a little dusty in here? Geez.

Then for Catherine’s hometown date in Seattle, Sean has to do the infamous fish-tossing at the market. He’s a great sport about it and so is Catherine, when she gets pulled into it. Fun.

There was one other preview clip, which we couldn’t embed, but it shows Sean having the much-teased confrontation with Desiree’s brother (pictured, right). “She’s really into you, but you’re not into her,” says the brother. When Sean insists he’s crazy about Desiree, her brother responds, “I think you’re just a playboy. You’re just having fun with the circumstances. Whatever comes along, just have fun there, then go to the next one, have fun.”

Do you think Desiree’s brother is right? “The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
