Bachelorette 17ep1: Prince Harry Effect
/

We’re back for a new season and we jump right into things by discussing… the length of our podcast episodes? It wouldn’t be the Bachelor Masters without tangents, but we do get back on track pretty quickly and discuss Tayshia and Kaitlyn, Cat Guy, Box Guy, Blowup Doll Guy, the other guys, and, of course, Katie, after trying to figure out what sex positivity means. We conclude with Co-host Iciar coining the phrase Prince Harry Effect, which is how eww guys become it guys. Is that Greg? Hmm… tune in to find out!

Bachelor 25ep10&AFR: Mommy and Daddy issues

Here we are at the last episode of the season and wouldn’t you know it, it’s Matt’s Mom and Dad who take center stage (literally and figuratively) to derail Matt’s quest for love. Co-host Craig equates it to going on Dating Naked and getting upset that you’re naked. That’s what this ending was like! We debate that biggie along with other big issues including Michelle not getting her follow up talk, Rachael confronting Matt and Matt confronting Rachael, Emmanuel Acho hosting and the breath of fresh air that brings, whether Matt is an f-boy, and a bunch of other topics. Make sure to stick around for the Fashion Roundup at the end. It’s our last podcast episode for a while so hit the play button and join us!

We start off this podcast episode really excited because not only are we recording at a reasonable hour of the day and week, but we had a couple listener reviews come in! We read those and jab a bit about some random topics before getting into Matt and his Dad’s reconciliation, the dates with Michelle, Bri, and Rachael, and seeing Matt’s nipple during one of the fantasy suites–so risqué! It’s listener appreciation week and we’d love to have you hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 25WTA: Deserving of love

Bachelor 25WTA: Deserving of love
/

In this podcast episode we argue about a few things (and the podcast works best when we’re arguing), for example about who is deserving of love. Does everyone deserve love? Does deserving love require people to pay in cultural currency? Along with that debate we argue about Katie, knowing we’re not the only one’s arguing about her. We also talk a bit about ongoing controversies in Bachelor Nation and, of course, end with the Fashion Roundup. Hit the play button and join us!

Co-host Caitlin is back this week and with her we talk about a range of topics both Bachelor-related and not, including classical music, southern music, and sunglasses. We also start a listener drive (tell everyone you know about the Bachelor Masters!). Pertaining to the show, we then analyze the different home town dates, speculating on why Matt doesn’t like Michelle as much as he should, how Bri’s mom might have parented, and whether Rachael would be a good influence(r).

We’re late recording this podcast, we know, but we try to get back into the conversation with our typical Bachelor Masters takes. This includes conversation on the racism of Chris Harrison, Kit’s next-level vocal fry, Heather’s epic use of the word like, tantric yoga, Rachel’s unawareness of racism, Abigale getting cut, and a lot more. Co-host Caitlin isn’t with us this episode (feel better soon!), which leads to a shorter podcast episode, but hey, maybe that’s a good thing for Friday listening. It’s all here and we’d love for you to hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 25ep6: More producer intervention

Bachelor 25ep6: More producer intervention
/

In this podcast episode we talk about a not-so-great Bachelor episode that is once again full of producer intervention. It seems the producers can’t help themselves, whether it’s Heather’s arrival and subsequent skirting of security, Katie’s strange date alongside Tyler, or the random (and repeated) carnival popup and subsequent stuffed animal selection. We’re here to take a stand and if we could, we’d hold an intervention for the producers. But hey, maybe it’s us and our opinionated podcast that needs the intervention.

Despite Co-host Craig’s best attempts to talk about Kit for this whole podcast episode, we end up talking about all of the other events of the week and, well, Kit. To Co-host Craig, there’s just so much in Kit and Matt’s five minute date to talk about: the cookies, the height and age difference, the happy place, the I’m failing in love with you. It’s too much. Just like Victoria is too much and finally gets past producer intervention and gets cut. We talk about all of this including Anna’s teeth, so hit the play button and join us!

The producers need an intervention, meaning, they need to stop intervening in the show. Right? From Victoria to five new women, it’s becoming too much for us to handle. This results in a slightly less cohesive podcast episode than we’re used to producing, but if you hang with us we do make some good points such as a lengthy discussion on escorting. We then get into playing clips from past seasons, which makes Co-host Craig really giddy. Come join us for all of the fun!

Bachelor 25ep3: The Long Goodbye

Bachelor 25ep3: The Long Goodbye

It took a long time for Sarah to say goodbye in this episode, but it’s not just the exit that makes us think of the movie, The Long Goodbye. Rather, it’s the self-obsession, the meaninglessness of friendships and love, that links the Bachelor to the film. Know what we mean? Well, even if you don’t, you can still listen to this podcast episode because we have lots of interesting conversation around Sarah, Victoria, Katie, Rachel, Serena, and, of course, Matt, who we grill during our Fashion Roundup.
