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!
Bachelor 24ep8: Hook, sex, baby talk
We betcha we’re the only podcast around that has lined up actual audio of Madison and last season’s Luke P and played them back-to-back in order to see how their approaches to celibacy (for themselves and others) are similar or different. Related, we then talk for a while about nihilism and setting restraints on one’s self (and one’s life). Believe it or not, we limit our tangents resulting in a podcast episode that is actually really focused on the show. We know, right??
Bachelor 24ep7: My Two Dads
Dads take center stage in this recap of four hometown dates, particularly the two dads who feel that they need to protect their daughters. From Peter? It seems so, especially when moms chime in with quips such as, “Don’t go breaking my daughter’s heart.” We get to all of this and a lot more, including some insider knowledge of Virginia Beach, another tear down of Victoria F, and some speculation on what’s next.

Bachelor 24ep6: Lovin’ in Lima?
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!
Bachelorette 15ep10: Similarly in love
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!
Bachelorette 15ep9: I don’t want your life
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.

Bachelorette 15ep8: A preview goes Chernobyl
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!
Bachelorette 15ep7: Enter Corinthians
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!
