Bachelorette Reunion: Deus ex machina your life

How are you gonna move up in the world? Go on the Bachelorette! If that’s true, then do all of the people that send in applications to be contestants want out of their present life…? This is just the kind of Existential Dread we love to talk about here on the Bachelor Masters! So, we talk about that, but, ya know, in a positive way, along with Hannah, Alabama, the reunion mixer, the new contestants, race and class, and sort of meeting Colton at an Amazon puppy event. Join in and let us know that you Exist!

Bachelorette Countdown: Roll Tide and Fight On

We start our third year of the podcast in style, by which we mean the Neo-Socratic style. Eventually our attention turns to the contestants by way of introducing Mark (The Fourth Bachelor Master) on-air, chatting about Alabama (Roll Tide) and USC (Fight On), talking about Cassie and Colton’s new digs down the hall from each other, and, most importantly, Co-host Iciar and Mark’s hang-out sesh with Leo (!!!) at a comedy club. Hit play and join us! No Endgame or Game of Thrones spoilers!

Bachelor 23Ep11&12: The Road Not Taken

We messed up and forgot to talk about Air Supply! But, we did talk about everything else to the best of our ability up to and including Hannah B.’s red dress with the arm that goes down to the floor. We also try to come to some conclusions on what the Bachelor Franchise really means to us humans born into a large, undetermined Universe. It’s riveting podcasting, for sure, so please join us by hitting the play button!

Bachelor 23Ep9&WTA: Sex sells… but who’s selling?

We take the gloves off and dive deep into the Fantasy Suites. Which is funny because Colton himself didn’t “deep dive” in the Fantasy Suites. But enough innuendo! We debate the particulars of love, casual sex, heartbreak, feelings, and Cassie’s dad for a whole hour. After that we get around to tangenting and talk about Craig meeting the Angry Video Game Nerd and the Gaming Historian (even though Craig isn’t a gamer). Hit play and join us for what could be our penultimate podcast episode!

Bachelor 23Ep8: Live from East Hollywood!

Surprise! We recorded live from an East Hollywood Bachelor Watch Party last night hosted by awesome Bachelor Masters fans Miriam and Leah! Note that we cut out various pauses, breaks, and times when we weren’t talking because we were watching the episode (more like cringing at the episode) which takes it down to about an hour. Come along for the ride in what is our first live remote!

Bachelor 23Ep7: What Is To Be Done?

It seems that our last podcast episode was too nice on the Bachelor franchise so we overcompensate by being pretty mean and upset on this one. Particularly, what’s up with the fence not being jumped? This may seem like a small thing but Co-host Craig makes it into a big deal. And, kidding aside, we feel that the Women of Color on the show are being unfairly treated by the other contestants and the producers. If you like tangents, you’ll like this episode. Press play and join us!

Bachelor 23Ep5: Gross and grosser

In this episode we take on the various interpersonal dramas between woman and man and woman and woman and rain and humidity. The latter leads to gross perspiration which has us pondering if attraction is based on sweat. Also gross is the staging of the three-way fight at the end, that Colton joins… err, runs away from. Is this when he jumps the fence? Will he jump anything?

Bachelor 23ep4: Fear factor

Co-host Craig is a little distracted today. So while in this podcast episode we don’t talk about “fear” or “Fear Factor,” he phoned in the title, “Fear factor,” based on an off-hand remark by Iciar. Fear factor! It sounds cool. Like bungee jumping: it sounds cool but probably really isn’t. None of us will ever know. But Colton now knows! We cover that and a bunch of other things, including how Bachelor contestants might consider unionizing, in this low-energy yet action packed hour.

Bachelor 23ep3: On the words “like” and “death”

These are serious words, dear listener: “like” as a discourse marker and “death” as a source of strength. That’s about it, no reason to make fun. Except with Demi, who likes to dish fun. And Hannah B and Caelynn whose post-fallout friendship is fun too. It’s all in this serious yet fun episode of the Bachelor Masters!
