Bachelorette 16ep4: Deleuze and the point system
/

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 fiancĂ© 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!

Here we are at the end of Listen to Your Heart and what are the talking points? Hannah B hijacked the conversation on Instagram Live, Rudy and Matt left before they got to sing their songs, and the winners we thought were going to win, won. But there’s more…. Chris Harrison said creepy baby making comments, there was Jewel’s hat, producers manufactured drama between Bri and Chris, and don’t forget about the Fashion Roundup.

Love vesus in love… love versus the idea of being in love… falling in love versus the idea of falling in love. Rollercoaster emotions aren’t limited to Jamie in this episode; there are emotional rollercoasters all over the place! We try to break everything down in usual Bachelor Masters fashion, and also in Bachelor Masters fashion we include a Fashion Roundup as well as a big comeback of Co-host Caitlin’s Ice Skating Minute!

It takes us a little while to get into the content of show (meaning, we tangent a bit) but once we do, Co-host Iciar leads us on a gaslighting deconstruction journey. This is good because the definitions for gaslighting have proliferated in recent years and it’s good to get a refresher on its roots, and Brandon provides some clear examples that we dissect with great attention. We wrap up with, you got it, some thoughts on fashion. Hit the play button and join us!

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 jump into the ring that countless other media have jumped into: Barb and her… lively… display on After the Final Rose. We argue over Madison vs Barb and include hard statistics in the form of the results from an Instagram story poll along with, per usual for us Bachelor Masters, clips of the two in their own words. We then follow with a mega Fashion Roundup that you won’t want to miss! It’s all here in the last podcast episode of the Bachelor season before we come back in a few weeks for the song-orientated Bachelor show. Hit the play button and join us!

A few conversations from our last podcast episode are continued in this podcast episode, including Co-host Iciar’s questions about what happens behind closed doors, or in this case, hot tubs. We also talk about the dates, confidence, being bored, education, isolation, religion, and even introduce a whole new Bachelor Masters segment called the Ice Skating Minute featuring Co-host Caitlin. We seem to be recording longer episodes these days so we hope you’ll hang with us past the hour marker now and in the future! Hit the play button and join us!
