1:28:37

Perhaps one day we'll look back at this hastily organized mid-season relaunch as the Journey™-saving turning point for Gabby and Rachel. For now, we're just as flabbergasted as you probably are. Thanks for listening. (Timestamps below)

"NEXT!" | 'The Bachelorette' S19 E2
1:18:41

In an episode filled with franchise firsts, one of the leads was essentially Next-ed, the first one-on-one of the season ended with a sad music montage, and 21 of 29 cast members didn’t get a date at all. The only certainty about this season is there are more bizarre moments to come. Thanks for listening. (Timestamps below)

"Double Trouble" | 'The Bachelorette' S19 E1
1:31:49

The Bachelorette is back, this time with two leads, 32 contestants, and 31 shirts. It was a bit like an episode of LOST, in that it asked more questions than it answered and we have no idea how it's gonna come together next week. Thanks for listening. (Timestamps below)

'The Bachelorette' S19 Cast Draft
30:50

‘The Bachelorette’ cast list has been released, so we decided to do a draft based on their bios and head shots. Our goal was to create the highest-score rosters using a system similar to traditional Bachelor bracket scoring. (One point for a rose at the first rose ceremony, two for the second, four for the third, eight for the fourth, and so on.) It's a nonsense episode, but we appreciate you listening.

"Family Double Dare" | 'The Bachelor' S26 Finale
1:30:41

After a double-debacle the likes of which we can only hope to never see again, somehow everyone involved had kind of a happy ending? What a show. Thanks again for listening all season. We're grateful to have you along for these rides, ludicrous as they sometimes may be.

""Hometowns"" | 'The Bachelorette' S18 E7
1:16:13

The always highly anticipated Hometowns episode was a bit subdued this season, with reasonable and supportive family members backing each drama-free relationship. As far as the actual location of the "hometown" dates, well, in the words of Stephen A. Smith, "We have been hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray, run amok, and flat-out deceived!" Thanks for listening.

"Matt's Season Finale" | 'The Bachelor' S25 Finale
1:33:43

Matt's season of 'The Bachelor' reaches its inevitable conclusion, with many opportunities missed.


Note: The last 15 minutes of this episode (not an exaggeration) consist of a mostly incoherent rant from Rim and some general venting from both of us in a segment we'll call our State of the Union. Apologies in advance.

A mostly predictable slate of overnight dates leaves us without much deep analysis of the latest steps in Matt's Journey™. At one point AB spent a full two minutes talking about the logistics of planning the fireworks show...and we still went short. Thanks for listening.

"Read Between The Lines" | 'The Bachelorette' S16 E1
1:16:22

At long last, Clare's season from the La Quinta bubble has arrived. With a more mature cast of men who might not even have to share bunk beds, the next few months will surely be low on drama. Right?


Please note: We've decided to cover Clare's season with the major "spoiler" as part of the discussion. If you have somehow managed to avoid this news, it's in your best interests to refrain from listening until, y'know, the coast is clear. (For what it's worth, they discussed the rumors openly on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, so it's not exactly contained to the seedy underbelly of the internet.)

Bonus Episode w/ Alyssa and Taylor from Table Flipping: More Juan Pablo, 'The Bachelorette', RHONY, the end of KUWTK, and more
1:20:59

TV writer Alyssa Litman and actress Taylor Misiak from the Table Flipping Podcast join us to give their impressions of Juan Pablo, expectations for Clare and [REDACTED] on the upcoming season of 'The Bachelorette', those weird promos, the end of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', Real Housewives of New York, Vanderpump Rules, the Philadelphia 76ers, and more.


Each week, Alyssa and Taylor sit down with guests to unpack how the fascinating, messy women of reality TV shaped their lives and dish about Bravo, 'The Bachelor' and everything in between. (I can't take credit for this copy, it's straight from their show description and is perfectly accurate as-is.) New episodes every Friday. Check them out on Apple Podcasts: [https://apple.co/3hF1fQU]

Spotify: [https://spoti.fi/2ZHXKD6]

and Instagram: @tableflippingpodcast [instagram.com/tableflippingpodcast]


Taylor stars as Ally in the brilliant comedy 'DAVE' on FXX. It is easily one of our favorite shows right now. You can stream the entire first season on Hulu: [https://hulu.tv/3hBAgWv]

Also: Rim and AB spent the last 20 minutes of the episode talking about Big Brother even though nobody asked. Enjoy?

Juan Pablo Galavis' Season | 'The Greatest Seasons ⁠— Ever!' E10
1:11:15

To prepare us for Clare's stint as the Bachelorette, Chris Harrison saved the worst "greatest" season for last. Juan Pablo's journey to find love endured some late bumps in the road, shall we say, leading to a pair of the most memorable moments in franchise history.

Nick Viall's Season | 'The Greatest Seasons ⁠— Ever!' E9
1:12:39

The good news is, we're almost finished with these GOAT episodes. The bad news is we were forced to revisit a season so recent that some cast members are still actively participating in Bachelor franchise shows. We discuss how our feelings have changed since originally recapping Nick's season in 2017 before the episode devolves into an extended discussion about Big Brother and the 1996 NBA Draft class. As always, thanks for listening.

Jason Mesnick's Season | 'The Greatest Seasons ⁠— Ever!' E8
1:12:27

A look back at Jason Mesnick, whose change of heart after his finale engagement was a watershed moment for the franchise and delivered television so compelling it would have made Christof from The Truman Show jealous. Unfortunately, his GOAT episode was a bit lacking, so Rim and AB were sidetracked even more than usual this week. Thanks for listening, and for your patience!


Unrelated to reality TV: Most of eastern Iowa — including our hometown, Cedar Rapids — experienced an inland hurricane on Monday. Thousands of homes and businesses were damaged from in excess of 100 mph, causing countless downed trees and power lines. Nearly the entire city of 150,000+ will be without electricity for another week, if not longer. The clean-up will take months.

We know a lot of people are hurting for a lot of reasons at the moment, but if you're able, we would deeply appreciate if you considered donating to one of these local organizations helping people who need food and assistance right now:

First things first: There was seismic news this week regarding the upcoming season of The Bachelorette. If you do not know this news and want to enter the season completely and totally unspoiled, we suggest you skip to at least the 16:00 minute mark.


Ali's season though, huh? What a love story. "Rated-R" was there for the Rated WRONG reasons after all, haha. And Frank, how did that cutie let Ali slip away? Rim and AB put aside the man drama to discuss another classic Bachelor season.

Alex and Trista's Seasons | 'The Greatest Seasons ⁠— Ever!' E5
59:08

It's not just the baggy suits -- the first seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were totally different than the shows we watch today. We discuss the breakneck pace at which Alex and Trista narrowed down their potential mates and the fact that just about everyone involved wasn't entirely sure what was going on most of the time.

(Full disclosure/inside baseball: Here's the deal...when we initially recorded this episode, Rim had just upgraded some software which reset some items to their default settings, resulting in a nearly unlistenable file. So Rim re-recorded his parts, which means he had to pretend as if he was conversing with AB in real time when in fact he was not. The result is a subpar episode, plain and simple. I'm embarrassed by it, and frankly I won't blame you if you skip it. In any event, thank you for your patience. We'll be back to normal for the next episode.)

We discuss the two-Bachelorette night one gimmick, Nick Viall's mid-season entry, the absence of Shawn Booth's proposal, and much more. Plus: Reaction to the huge BN announcement — Matt James is our next Bachelor.


(Stat corrections: Rim messed up a few items this week, chief among them the fact that there were two one-on-one dates between the time Nick received his first rose in New York City and when he had his first one-on-one date with Kaitlyn in Ireland.)

Season 17 condensed into three hours felt like a breath of fresh air after the stink Peter left in his wake. We discuss the highlights, the presentation format, and what we'd like to see from the rest of these episodes. Thanks for listening.

"Un-Break His Heart" ft. Nikki Glaser | 'Listen To Your Heart' S1 E4

Chris Harrison's surprising twist designed solely to bring Brandon and Julia together backfired almost immediately, leaving us with four fewer contestants heading into week five. We discuss the Savannah and Sheridan's grace in the face of absurdity, another round of great performances, if anyone other than Bri and Chris deserve to win, Toni Braxton, and more.


Plus: Comedian Nikki Glaser was kind enough join us later in the show to share her thoughts on LTYH so far, including Brandon and Julia's hastily handled breakups, Natascha's underhanded pre-show tactics, a serendipitous story about Kendall from Nick's season, and more.

1:23:32

This is what we've been waiting for. Performances in front of a live audience, credible judges (with questionable levels of responsibility), and a defined path for the rest of the season -- and the final couple. Don't look now, but Listen To Your Heart is actually good. Plus: Raw emotion regarding Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler's stunning breakup.

"...It's Brandon?" | 'Listen To Your Heart' S1 E2

"Chopless" ft. Kate Casey | 'Listen To Your Heart' S1 E1 Recap
1:01:51

Little different episode for a Bachelor show that's...definitely different. Comedian and author Kate Casey — host of the podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey — joins us to help break down the franchise's frequently uncomfortable foray into the world of music, Listen To Your Heart. Will any of these stage hopefuls emerge with a legitimate music career? Can heartthrob Ryan hang with the likes of John Mayer? Is Michael Todd serious?

"Heavy Lies The Crown" | 'The Bachelor' S24 E7 Recap
1:25:20

Hometowns are next week, despite our nagging feeling that it is still "early in the season". Two one-on-one dates went quite well, but a high-stakes three-on-one was filled with bad energy. Plus: AB has some theories regarding Natasha's season arc, and Rim reveals a legitimate shakeup in his power rankings. Full disclosure: We had some connection difficulties all episode, so sometimes we couldn't hear one another clearly. If the chemistry seems off, please direct all complaints to AB's internet provider thank you. For this reason, it's not our best episode if we're being honest.

"Back at the Haus" | 'The Bachelorette' S15 E8 Recap
1:20:45

Things are getting lukewarm between Hannah and Jed, Tyler takes a step, Mike steps aside, and Luke barrels into Hometowns as only he can. When they're not distracted by stroopwafel conspiracies, Rim and AB are here to break down the details.


(Yeah we used a photo of Tyler for the second episode in the row, what of it? Little something called social media strategy, okay.)

"Lane Logistics" | 'The Bachelorette' S15 E7 Recap
1:29:10

A teenage viewer with his or her learner's permit would be hard-pressed to pass any kind of Driver's Ed quiz if they spent more than a few minutes listening to Garrett and Luke discuss multi-lane highway logistics and courtesy. Plus: Peter steams his way to the top, Tyler solidifies his position, Garrett begins to fall in love *for* someone, and much more.


(Full disclosure: As you'll hear in our introduction, we had a little mishap recording this episode, one which required a re-recording. Some of the magical moments from that session are lost to the sands of time/solid state drives, and for that we apologize. But we did our best, and hope you enjoy.)

"Pitchfork Season" | 'The Bachelorette' S15 E6 Recap
1:15:45

This week's episode of 'The Bachelorette' -- which included a forty-five-minute surprise recap clip show, to the benefit of no one -- was an affront to Bachelor Nation and a mistake that will not soon be forgotten. The first part had some juice, though, and believe it or not, we discussed it at length. Enjoy.

On dates and in dim hotel rooms, the contenders separate themselves from the pack. There are now five or six people we just can't imagine Colton sending home.

After a few bumps in the road, Kendall seems ready to commit to Joe, America's sweetheart. Elsewhere, Leo loses it, Eric moves his own cheese, and some couples are ready for the real world. [Kip from Napoleon Dynamite voice] I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.

We recap it all, from the family dinners to the proposal to the AFTR controversy discussion. (Side note, our audio was acting weird and we couldn't really talk at the same time. So when you hear silence from one of us after the other makes a great joke, just know we're silently laughing to ourselves.)

Jason smiled through two abrupt walkaways, gleefully ate crickets (with no sauce!), and capped off his journey with a post-breakup scrapbook delivery.

What do we expect from Bachelorette Becca? Has there ever been a less enthusiastic crowd to witness a live proposal? Plus: A loaded Rosebag.

1:00:39

We were promised confrontation, and ABC did not deliver. In a mostly unmemorable Hometowns episode, Arie managed to win over every family from the East coast to the West. After a shocking rose ceremony, who do we think will be wearing some Neil Lane at the end of all this? Plus: Some Winter Games talk and a loaded Bouquet.

All that, and a breathtaking text hits the Bouquet.

1:01:19

Fun. Passionate. Sad. Emotional. Excited. Futuristic. These are just a few of the different layers Krystal revealed to Arie in the latest breathtaking episode of 'The Bachelor." From the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale to the posh lobby of their hotel in Fort Lauderdale, this week was a whirlwind of love, drama, and outright deceit. The days of Chelsea's villainy have disappeared over the horizon in our rear view mirrors, and Tia has stepped to the fore by becoming the first to "profess her love" for Arie. Make of those quotation marks what you will.

The follow-up to last week's dull episode was anything but: Krystal's ratcheted everything up a full notch, Bekah finally revealed what should have been obvious to Arie (she's pretty young, dude), and Seinne secured a one-on-one date with enough heartfelt moments for a nice Bachelorette highlight reel. Plus: A chaotic outdoorsy group date nearly takes a fatal turn.

"Kisses Used To Mean Something Around Here!" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E3 Recap
58:13

It was a tough week for Arie guys such as ourselves. Our fearless lead just kind of floated through the episode, showing little interest in the group date activities and spending more than half of his alone time with his lips locked with the nearest warm body. Not even comedy legend Fred Willard could save one of the two disastrous group dates, which were not nearly as fun as Chris promised. Plus: Lauren's trainwreck of a one-on-one and the newest Annaliese phobia.


Timestamps: GLOW pro wrestling group date (a disaster) (3:15); Group date nighttime (11:30); Lauren S. winery date (also a disaster) (19:30); Some sort of dog-themed group date? (29:45); Group date nighttime (34:15); Cocktail party (39:15); Rose Ceremony (46:15); Mailbag aka The Rosebag (51:45)

"Shout Out Cardi B" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E2 Recap
1:02:36

Arie's second episode included some truly head-scratching one-on-one dates. Between Becca's jaw-dropping sugar daddy date and Krystal's private jet visit to Arie's hometown, it felt like ABC accidentally aired Week 8 instead of Week 2. Plus: Are we willing to make light of an alleged childhood bumper car trauma? And should ABC blur out some of the more intense makeout sessions?


Before you start the episode, Rim needs to come clean on one thing: We spent about 10 minutes discussing the value of Becca's luxury haul (Rachel Zoe dresses, Christian Louboutin shoes, earrings, necklace, and bracelets from Neil Lane), and while AB tried to convince me Becca did not get to keep the necklace and bracelets, I insisted she did. I was incorrect. Hand up, that's on me.


Timestamps: Weird episode! (1:15); Shameless self-promotion and message for Olay (1:45); First date card of the season (3:20) Becca K. date - daytime [and bonus uninformed jewelry takes] (5:05); Jealousy brewing back at the house? (11:15); Nighttime portion of Becca's date (13:00); Second date card (13:30); Becca and Arie get deep (14:35); Becca gets to keep the diamonds!!

Emily's breakup with Arie was truly heartbreaking. But as she wept and he held back tears, Rim and AB wonder why he didn't see it coming. Plus: What has Emily been up to since breaking things off with Jef, this season's winner? (The way I wrote that sentence makes it seem as if Emily is our guest on this episode. She is not.) Also, Rim was apparently not speaking directly into the mic (rookie move smh) so he hereby apologizes for that. Thanks for listening.

My arms are tightening even just thinking about it. But don't let Doug's cringeworthy moment distract you from the fact that Arie neglected to tell Emily about his previous relationship with one of the show's producers.

Our biggest takeaways from this episode are 1) we need to get to London and 2) maybe don't besmirch the name of your potential future stepdaughter? Helicopter Kalon dug deep in the mud of the latter, and in the process got himself tossed off the show like a basketball coach who gets two quick technical fouls on purpose so he can make a dinner reservation. Also of note: Arie and Emily make out again.

"Doug's Not About To Get Bottle Service" | 'The Bachelorette' S8 E4 Recap
39:28

Mr. "I Have Kids Okay!?" himself Doug manages to secure a one-on-one date rose from Emily, while the A-team trips over themselves scrambling for her attention on a nautical group date. Plus: the most pointless two-on-one in show history and Ryan uses meaningless Southern one-liners the same way Obi-Wan Kenobi tricks storm troopers into letting his friends into the cantina at Mos Eisley.

45:59

Recall the most impressive fireworks show you've ever seen. Something similar happened at the conclusion of Arie and Emily's first one-on-one date on a carousel in Dollywood, a theme park dedicated to a country music megastar whose work we are unfamiliar with. Plus: Ryan, Kalon, and Allessandro jostle for position atop our Biggest Idiot power rankings.

"I'd Be Mad Too" | 'The Bachelorette' S8 E2 Recap
33:57

The second episode of Emily's season has less Arie, less Jef, and almost no Sean Lowe. Instead, we were treated to a one-on-one date of Emily basically running errands and some "back at the house" confrontation between a dude who is a dad and a different dude who is not a dad. Thrilling stuff.

"Real Love" | 'Bachelor In Paradise' S4 Finale Recap
1:11:07

'Bachelor In Paradise' ended the way it began: with demonstrations of actual love. In between, of course, a lot of muckety-muck went down, and you can bet your bottom dollar Rim and AB discussed all of it. Settle in for a full recap of the BiP finale — from confusing breakups to an adorable proposal — along with a haphazard dive into AB's Mailbag and a special announcement.

(Full disclosure: You may notice tiny "hiccups" in AB's audio [not actual hiccups, AB's fine]. Your boys Sherlock and Watson aka Watson and Crick diagnosed the issue after recording and can assure you it won't come up next episodes. Thanks for listening.)
