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!
We’re back after five and a half big ones (months) with our countdown to the new season. Featuring Clare, or Tayshia, and 32, or 57, men, and recorded at La Quinta, the resort not the budget motel, we run down what we think might happen when Clare is in until she’s not and also run over some of the guys that we think will be on the show until they’re not. We keep on about Clare-as-Bachelorette and also chat Matt James-as-Bachelor, Colton and Cassie, anesthesiologists, and all the things that come with those topics. Hit the play button and join us for this awesome, action-packed countdown episode!
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!
