Sure, we talk about shaming and shamers shaming and shamers being shamed. Though we also try to make sense of the many characters that are being presented to us (a record number, who knew?). Included are some hot takes, per usual for the Bachelor Masters, and some less than hot takes, such as our per usual distaste for Caelynn. Where do our opinions fall on Blake in the second week? Demi? Nicole? Christian? You’ll have to hit the play button to find out! As always, we’d love to hear from you on social media, @ or DM or otherwise, if you agree or disagree or otherwise!
Six days went fast and we’re back in your podcast app. We have a new co-host, Caitlin, and she jumps right in discussing the cast’s pre-beach communications, Blake’s looks, and Hannh G’s fav charcuterie boards. (The latter is a great answer to “what is your favorite food” because it describes not just taste but social scene.) We also get to talk about Stagecoach and Blake’s, um, second night stand, New York City, loneliness, and so much more. Sound exciting? Hit the play button and join us for the whole BIP season!
Here’s our final episode of the season before we take the long break until next week for the start of Bachelor in Paradise. We could try to list everything we talk about here, but it’s weaved together so nicely in the audio we wouldn’t do it justice. Hey, it’s been a long season so we think we’re allowed to pat ourselves on the back? Like Jed did when he “won the show”?

Just in time for your Sunday podcast listening the Bachelor Masters come at you with an episode that might accidentally equate Peter to astronauts, still wonders what people see in Tyler, critically examines Jed’s manipulation, and coins the phrase “evangelical boxing.” Actually we don’t know if we say evangelical boxing in this episode or if Co-host Craig came up with it while writing this description, it’s late in the week now and he’s in Ohio where the heat and humidity is impacting his memory. Whether we did or didn’t, Co-host Iciar definitely coins the phrase, “similarly in love,” so you’ll definitely enjoy this episode! Click the play button and let’s go!
Poor Peter, he’s not going to win. Hannah, we conclude, doesn’t want his life out here in Communist California. We discuss that and, of course, the other hometown dates and wonder what actually constitutes one’s hometown. Throw in various tangents about the San Fernando Valley, memes, religion, and Florida (the usuals for this season) and add in a mom who could someday be the star of her own murder mystery on Lifetime and you got one great Bachelor Masters episode.

As you might expect, Co-host Craig wants to skip right to the end of the two hour episode and talk about the radioactive Hannah-Luke preview. Fortunately for the sake of the podcast, Co-host Iciar is able to maintain a fair amount of structure to our conversation. Though we still talk a lot about the Hannah-Luke preview, because, really, who doesn’t want to talk about a nuclear disaster like that? We also discuss the other guys along with religion, mental health, past Bachelorettes, future Bachelors, and how all TV editors in Hollywood are (allegedly) drunks. Keep comin’ along for the ride by pressing the play button and listening in!
We start out by debating whether Luke’s uncomfortably large gold cross is virtue signaling or dog whistling. Then we get into Luke’s various remarks to Hannah, including his body-is-temple bit, that was probably pulled from Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians. We verge on a heated argument around misogyny, racism, and neurosis, with the lines drawn in ways we didn’t expect, ending up at some conclusions that we hope will help out come next week as we continue to try to figure out Luke and (if the previews are to be trusted) his continued shaming of Hannah. Whew. There’s a lot here! Try to figure it all out at the same time we do by pressing play and joining us! Fashion Roundup at the end!
We were thinking about naming this, “No rose, no problem,” but decided to stay away from discussion of the guys. Instead, after five episodes of favorable reviews of Hannah, we now, unfortunately, start to turn on her. Particularly, we make one of our deeper dives ever on her statements around religion and sexuality such as her “believe … created … but” line. You’ll get a lot out of it, but then again, we seem to have been wrong about Hannah so we can be wrong here, too. Take the risk that you will by clicking play and joining us!
An exceptionally sleep-deprived Co-host Craig coupled with a perfectly caffeinated and well-articulating Co-host Iciar makes for deep dives into critical subjects that would decompress Jules Verne. It’s good late-night listening. Err… if you only listen during the day then it’s great for that, too. Hit play and join us for this sleepy and excited wild ride!
This episodes tasks us with a trip to the right coast. After gushing about his love for New England, Co-host Craig turns his attention to Jed who makes all of his basketball shots. Like, all of them. Even the one facing backwards while kissing Hannah. It seems that all of this is pointing toward Hannah and Jed becoming good friends some day in Nashville, where all Bachelorette friendships flourish. And, hey, sorry for posting this episode so late in the week… Please hit play and listen anyways, because despite the lateness there is still lots of cool Bachelor Masters content!
