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!

Listen in to our action-packed podcast season finale where we break down an ice bath, synchronized breathing, our problems with Zac, Twitter quibbles, whether this season was fake Bachelor-produced nonsense, a proposal, blood-diamonds, and a lot more. We end with our usual Fashion Roundup where we talk about symmetry, lingerie, the 90s, and t-shirts. It’s all here and we’d love for you to hit the play button!

Bachelorette 16ep2: Pause for effect

Bachelorette 16ep2: Pause for effect

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!

Listen to Your Heart 1ep1: All about Jamie

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to go to a Sound Bath, or a Korean Spa, then this is the podcast episode for you! It’s pretty amazing the tangents that talking about Jamie led us to, and it wouldn’t be Bachelor Masters without tangents. We do get on course, though, an discuss the structure of the show, where we think it’s heading, some notes on the producers, and the contestants, even though the show only let us see a few of them for any solid amount of time. We’d love to have you join us for the fun, so hit the play button!

Many hours of the Bachelor this week begets a longer podcast episode. We try to stick to Bachelor Masters deep dives into topics rather than moving sequentially through the scenes, with some tangents sprinkled in. Whether we were successful in this task is up to you, dear listener, so hit the play button and join us for this ride along a path laid by Kelsey, Kelly, Peter, Sydney, Victoria P and Racist Victoria, and Tammy, who Co-host Craig thinks should look for the monster in the mirror before finding monsters in others.

Los Angeles is a big place, so why are we only seeing Westlake Village line dancing bars? This is the question that kicks off our podcast episode and leads to some other deep thoughts, such as whether or not Peter has been Coltonized. What do we mean by that? You’ll have to listen in to find out! We’d love to have you along for the fun (and question-answering) so hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 24ep2: Chekhov’s Champagne

Bachelor 24ep2: Chekhov's Champagne

Unlike our last podcast episode we actually get to talking about the show pretty quickly in this podcast episode. Chekhov’s Champagne? It’s just like Chekhov’s Gun, except it’s… champagne. As in, Kelsey’s Des Moines Meltdown was predetermined by Bachelor producers. We also discuss Hannah B’s presence, Hannah Anne’s (lack of?) innocence, Tyler’s (lack of?) romancing in real life, and, all kidding aside, the problem of the show presenting Victoria F as a new, insecure model when she put on some really awful gear for a photo shoot a couple years ago. This leads to a broader discussion on race in America. It’d be awesome to have you along, so hit the play button and join us!

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!

For what is probably the first time in Bachelor Masters history, Co-host Craig actually likes the episode. And this is wild too: Co-host Iciar doesn’t like the episode. At least that’s what both of them say before going on about Hannah, that Scott guy, that Luke guy, why she even gives roses to any of the guys, jackets, morality, quitting jobs, and, well, that Luke guy again. It’s all here in our third podcast episode of the season! We’re still sans Chris, but please listen anyway!
