Bachelor 25ep9: Full frontal fantasies
/

We start off this podcast episode really excited because not only are we recording at a reasonable hour of the day and week, but we had a couple listener reviews come in! We read those and jab a bit about some random topics before getting into Matt and his Dad’s reconciliation, the dates with Michelle, Bri, and Rachael, and seeing Matt’s nipple during one of the fantasy suites–so risqué! It’s listener appreciation week and we’d love to have you hit the play button and join us!

Bachelorette Countdown: In until you’re not

Bachelorette Countdown: In until you're not

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!

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!

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??

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!

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.

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!

Welcome back, and we come back strong prompted by Co-host Iciar’s most excellent cultural provocations. They link love languages (with a nod to our last two podcast episodes) to politics and, generally, Western Civilization. (Seriously, this happens.) Either abruptly or smoothly, depending on your taste for non-sequitur, we then get to Peter and his quest to find love that’s exactly like the love he has with his parents. Err, his parents have with each other. Co-host Caitlin shares anecdotes, Co-host Craig makes things confusing, and it all wraps up into a tidy, albeit longer than usual, first Bachelor Masters episode of the season. And the Fashion Roundup, too! Hit the play button and join us!

Six days went fast and we’re back in your podcast app. We have a new co-host, Caitlin, and she jumps right in discussing the cast’s pre-beach communications, Blake’s looks, and Hannh G’s fav charcuterie boards. (The latter is a great answer to “what is your favorite food” because it describes not just taste but social scene.) We also get to talk about Stagecoach and Blake’s, um, second night stand, New York City, loneliness, and so much more. Sound exciting? Hit the play button and join us for the whole BIP season!

In this episode we try to talk sensitively about Alabama’s new legislation, drag queen culture, white people spectatorship, Luke P’s genuineness, Cam’s genuineness, weddings, Luke P again, massage rooms, shirts off, walls down, and, because he forces our hand after the rose ceremony, Luke P again. To keep us on track, Recorded Chris makes an appearance! If that in itself isn’t reason to hit the play button, then all of our sensitively must be!
