Last Man Standing's Baxter family might be getting one person bigger! Friday night’s episode, “One Flew Into the Empty Nest,” features Vanessa (Nancy Travis) and Mike (Tim Allen) toying with the idea of hosting an exchange student for a semester.
In a preview clip Fox released via , Vanessa comes home after a fundraiser for the aforementioned program. She tells Mike she didn’t give them any money, but instead wants to host one of the students in their home.
“Honey, I met this really sweet girl from Hong Kong named Jen. She is absolutely amazing. We had so much in common,” Vanessa says. “What, she’s married to a wonderful man who likes his life just the way it is?” Mike responds. “We are this close to having the house by ourselves, you want to ruin that?”
Mike says no to even having dinner with Jen and her father, but Vanessa puts her foot down. “I want this, so I am overruling you,” she says. “You can do that?” Mike asks.
, we see just how well Vanessa and Jen (played by Krista Marie Yu) hit it off. Jen wants to be a geologist, which happens to be Vanessa’s occupation.
But in , it looks like Mike clashes with Jen’s father over the president's policies in China. “I literally have just bitten my tongue,” Mike says, grimacing.
As it was already released that Jen would be joining the Baxter household for a period of time, we have a good feeling that Vanessa is going to win this battle. Which means fans will likely have plenty of heated debates to look forward to over the next few weeks!
