What can we say, we’re confused by Bachelor Nation’s love for Zac. It seems that the pivotal moment in his rise is his declaration that Tayshia has made him want to marry and have kids. Doesn’t that bump any guy’s score up? We discuss all of that in length along with the Men Tell All (which wasn’t that good), Ben (who suddenly seems like a villain), Brendon and Ivan (not much to say there), and wrap up with our usual Fashion Roundup (for which there’s a lot to say).

There’s very little to talk about in this episode which means that, in classic Bachelor Masters style, we find a lot to talk about. Bennett takes center stage as Co-host Iciar (sort of) defends him while our other co-hosts don’t, we wonder what’s up with Ed after he gets cut, ponder if Noah is a good guy, discuss Ben and his life stories, and end with the Fashion Roundup.

Our podcast episode starts off with Co-host Craig revealing some activities of his past that, believe it or not, relate to Ben getting naked during the group art date. This leads to Co-host Iciar and Co-host Caitlin telling some of their memories. Then, believe it or not, we talk about what happens on the show including more about art and Surrealism, Eazy blowing it, Zac being a creeper/non-creeper, and some thoughts on Tayshia.

As you might suspect, we Bachelor Masters have a few things to say about Ivan and Tayshia’s conversation about race, the police, and prisons. We take some angles you might not expect and try to carefully articulate our positions. This is unlike Ed, who in his intervals on the show has trouble articulating anything especially to Chris Harrison at their late-night rendezvous. We then get to other parts of the episode, such as, ya know, orgasming through a loud speaker. It’s all here in this podcast episode, so hit the play button and join us!
What is Boujee? We try to figure that out then go on to other phrases of the episode: Smoke Show and Grown Ass Man. And also: Chicken Legs, Phony, and fake babies. There’s a lot to sift through before we can even get to the bulk of the episode, which is: Toxic Masculinity and oil-upped sports. After we deconstruct those biggies we get to fashion in our usual Fashion Roundup. Whew! It’s a lot but join us and we promise to make sense!
In this podcast episode we talk about condom use, whether Dale is self-aware, Clare being extra, Tayshia’s men (old and new), who Co-host Iciar thinks Tayshia might end up with, Orange County and San Diego, whether we would want to be social media influencers (Co-host Craig would), Instagram boyfriends, Orange Robby, service jobs, cover bands, and the Fashion Roundup which includes sandals with dress pants… all with the usual, critical Bachelor Masters edge.

We start off talking about Co-host Iciar’s eerily similar parent-meeting story to Dale and Clare’s parent-meeting stories then get into Co-host Craig’s favorite topic, the point system. If you don’t know about the point system, you’ll get a refresher and even a mention of Deleuze (because a neutral observer is the best observer?). Co-host Caitlin chimes in with some stories of her own to flush out this story-based podcast episode. Hit the play button and join us!
As we come close to what is probably the end of Clare’s run as the Bachelorette, despite a lot of one-dimensional characters, including Clare and her already-designated fiancé Dale, there is actually a lot to debate, from microaggressions to emotes to fault to triggers to… Dale’s split pants. We try to make sense of it all in typical Bachelor Masters style, and we’d love to have you along for the ride… hit the play button and join us!
The Bachelorette didn’t disappoint in this second installment of the season, and we break down every point in keen Bachelor Masters style. Consider, for example, the long pause that made Clare unravel as the episode got going. Was it indeed a long pause, or a short one that just seemed long because someone coughed? But more importantly, how does Clare’s unravelling fit into a personality that our Co-hosts have identified over four-plus seasons of watching her on the franchise? All this and love languages, red flags, Dodge Ball, and the Fashion Roundup in this action-packed podcast episode!
It takes us a little while to ease into talking about the episode, getting caught up in the elections, drug policy, file formats, and shout outs, but once we do we dig in deep (as we usually do) to many different topics which makes this a longer Bachelor Masters podcast. Age, fertility, Clare’s history, COVID testing, quarantining, health, masculinity, dentists, Harvard, and, of course, fashion, are all on the table. Hit the play button and join in!
