I would love to meet and speak to Derek!! I think we would hit it off. We are looking for the same things and have a lot in common. We have both been hurt and left many times. Hope this gets out!

Episode Date
Boring Bach Energy (Zach's Season Ep. 2)
5009
This week Jared and Kay take on Vanity Fair and their lack substance article that claims The Bachelor is DOA. Of course, Jared being a man of the people, stands up for all of us who love reality tv or as some people refer to it, "garbage". Kay makes an incredible observation about the Bachelor mansion, and Jared thinks Christina is possibly a super villain. It's a jam packed episode, they give their top contenders (Kay's will shock you), and Jared finds the Tahzjuan of it all to be over produced. Enjoy the episode!

Family, Football, and Frozen Pizza (Zach's Season Ep. 1)
5042
Jared and Kay come into this 27th season with their side eye and skepticism but that doesn't stop them from talking all about the premiere of The Bachelor. Jared kindly refers to this franchise as the McDonald's of television and Kay wants to know just how many Dyson Airwraps were used in the making of these intro looks. They also ask the important questions like, is Jesse Palmer a frat bro ghost haunting the halls of the Bachelor mansion, and who the fuck are the Mandrell Sisters?! Not to mention, Jared's one sided beef with the SPF police continues. Enjoy the episode! Follow @ thebetchelor on Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date with all things reality tv.

The Future Mrs. Shallcross, Pt. 2 (Zach's Season Preview)
4051
Description: This week Kay and Jared are breaking down part two of the Bachelor contestant list, aka the "new hot people". They get into the Nick Viall of it all, tackling his "moral superiority" when it comes to Chris Harrison, and of course his recent engagement. Jared gives us his prediction that Zack will end up with a Disney adult, and asks the burning question, WTF is "yachting with the girls"?!

The Future Mrs. Shallcross, Pt. 1 (Zach's Season Preview)
4012
Kay and Jared are back baby! They are refreshed and ready to take on the new season of The Bachelor. Yeah, the new season doesn't start for another two weeks, but there is no shortage of news. Jared gives his hot takes when it comes to Gregg and Victoria's romance, and Disney adults. Not to mention, Chris Harrison launched a podcast, and is giving "troublesome" Nick Viall even more press. And of course, they go through the first half of the new Bachelor contestants, and whew, they are something. You can follow along here: https://abc.com/shows/the-bachelor/cast. Enjoy the episode!

Logan Actually Doesn’t Suck Ft. Logan Palmer
2613
He started as the guy who dated both bachelorettes, to then become the most dated guy on the beach in paradise, now he’s here with Jared and Kay to wrap up this season of The Betchelor. Jared wastes no time asking the hard-hitting questions… where his ig name came from, how tall he is, and of course his thoughts on Kate. Logan also gives some advice to anyone thinking about signing up for The Bachelorette (applications are open now btw). They finish up the episode with details about the beach and how much Logan loved it because it’s just like camping… that would be an immediate no for us but we’re happy he enjoyed it.

The Betchie Awards (Bachelor In Paradise Season 8)
4457
After a week of letting the finale sink in, Kay and Jared dive into the details and highlight the best (and worst) moments of the season. Welcome to The Betchies, grab your popcorn because there’s a lot of drama to be unpacked. Before they get into the awards, the elephant in the room needed to be addressed – Victoria and Greg doing their couple world tour. Are they actually in love or is this just an elaborate business deal? We would love to know. Kay and Jared finish up the episode with tips on how Bachelor in Paradise could be more entertaining in the future…producers, take notes. Tune in next week for The Betchelor season finale, with a very special guest you won’t want to miss. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date on all things Bachelor in Paradise.

Wicked Witch Of The Beach (Bachelor In Paradise Finale)
5170
Congrats! We finally made it to the end, pour yourself a drink – you deserve it. This week Jesse promised us the most dramatic finale ever and it was nothing short of dramatic that’s for sure. But there were definitely three key takeaways – the Tyler and Brittany breakup, the Victoria Greg Johnny love triangle, and Logan’s new look. Jared and Kay go through each couple and talk about the relationship, how it ended, and where it all went wrong. They end the episode with a round of games, weekly awards, and thoughts on The Bachelor preview. Let’s just say robot Zach as The Bachelor is not something we look forward to.

High Stakes And Sweet Nectar (Bachelor In Paradise Week 8)
4942
With one week until the finale, Kay joins Jared in the studio to review the drama that ensued over the last few episodes. We had pointless fights, we had dances, and we even had a potential yeast infection? We’re dwindling down to the end, so at this point its couple up or get out. After an intervention gone wrong, that’s exactly what happened to Jessenia and Ency. Where do we stand on that whole situation? Jared is here to shout it from the rooftops that he is team Andrew, to the point where they’re even on a DMing basis. They wrap up the episode with the usual round of games, weekly awards, and what they think next week will look like. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date on all things Bachelor in Paradise.

Jared Takes Up Modeling Ft. Chelsea Vaughn
2945
On this bonus episode, Jared talks to Chelsea Vaugh (@chelseavaughn) about Bachelor in Paradise and what she’s been up to since we last saw her on the show. She describes her transition from the corporate world to modeling, then applying to be on The Bachelor when she heard it would be Matt James. They talk producers, the reality of reality television, and Bachelor crew egg freezing – yeah, you read that correctly. You can tune in to her new podcast, Vaughnerable, for more convos on these topics – we’ll happily take all the BTS we can get.

On Election Day, Rodney Stumps For Our Vote (Bachelor In Paradise Week 7)
4068
As a pleasant surprise, we only had one episode this week, but it luckily did not lack the drama. Last week’s preview teased that something was going to send the whole beach into tears, and that it did. After choosing Rodney at the rose ceremony, Eliza still ended up breaking his heart. Kay and Jared get into where things went wrong and how it could have been handled better. They also dive into the other love triangle on the beach between Kate, Logan, and Hayden, and how Kate is producing her own show within the show. As always, they finish the episode with weekly awards, games, and discuss some prominent spoilers put out by Bachelor Nation.

Don’t You Know That You’re Toxic? (Bachelor In Paradise Week 6)
5088
This week we get two episodes of what Jared calls “couples beach.” It seems like everyone is paired up and enjoying a drama free moment in paradise…until Genevieve and Aaron give everyone a show. If that wasn’t enough, three new people join the beach to mix things up – Hayden (still without Rambo) and the twins. Jared lets us know how he feels about the twins. Let’s just say he grouped them with Ashley and Jared, and we know how he feels about them. Kay and Jared go into detail on the love triangles, the new contestants, and who’s just there for the cameras. They finish the episode with the most dramatic moments, weekly awards, and predictions for next week.

I’m The Problem, It’s Me (Bachelor In Paradise Week 5)
5592
Another week down and it might have actually been our most dramatic week yet. The split is over and Jesse Palmer was noticeably struggling to get these women to the end. Essentially, the original women were not having it and Jesse was their stand-in therapist. Believe it or not, some of the reunions on the beach did not go as smoothly as some would have hoped. We had break ups, new connections, self-eliminations, and some couples that actually survived. Jared and Kay talk love triangles, reunions, and real world dating on this week’s episode. As always, they wrap up with the weekly games and awards. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date on all things Bachelor in Paradise! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Let's Talk About These Couples... Ft. @morganptalks
3186
On this bonus episode, Kay and Morgan Paige of @morganptalks (a one stop shop for all things reality tv) talk about the current Bachelor in Paradise season. They discuss each couple, the overall cast, and the new split format, and let me tell you – they have some thoughts. Morgan even shares her theory of what happened that led to Michael and Danielle being exempt from the split. Seems like the producers care more about the drama than the lasting relationships...hmm suspicious.  Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date on all things Bachelor in Paradise Learn more about your ad choices.

Off-Brand Love Island (Bachelor In Paradise Week 4)
4976
Jesse promised us a twist this week and he definitely delivered. “The Split” might seem familiar to fans of other dating shows, that’s because they basically pulled it directly from Love Island. How do Jared and Kay feel about this you ask? 10/10 – Jared wants them to go even further and steal elements from even more reality shows. For once, it feels like the producers played their cards right. On the other hand, they also forced us to watch this clearly orchestrated situation between Michael and Danielle for far too long. We already know the producers have a heavy hand on the show, at least hide it a little better. Jared and Kay finish the episode with the most dramatic moments, weekly awards, and hopes for what the rest of the season looks like.

Get Down, Get Out Ft. Serena Pitt (Bachelor In Paradise Week 3)
5216
Another week in paradise and let’s just say it wasn’t all sunshine and tequila. TBH it was mostly a married couple farting…but we won’t talk about they who shall not be named. This season seems to have an open-door policy because we have people coming and going as they please. Jared and guest host Serena Pitt (@serena_pitt) weigh in on everything that went down this week. We even get the inside scoop on what being on the beach is actually like from Serena, a former paradiser. They finish up the episode highlighting their favorite dramatic moments from the week.

Indecision Theater Ft. Zachary Reality (Bachelor In Paradise Week 2)
4381
We made it through our first two-episode week and let’s just say, we’re exhausted already. Double dates, enemies turned best friends, dodged kisses, missing fingers…so much to take in in just one week. Jared and guest host Zachary from @zacharyreality dive into the drama of this week. They discuss their thoughts on the matches so far, along with the character development of some of the formally problematic contestants. Plus, is Salley coming or not? Finally, they finish the episode with would you rather, fantasy suites/hometowns/send home, and weekly awards. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Bachelor in Paradise.

Randos In Paradise (Bachelor In Paradise Ep. 1)
4782
The show we’ve been waiting for is finally here. Paradise is already proving it has superior mess and drama that we cannot wait to watch. When you go on Paradise you’re there to either make or break your reputation. And let’s just say, a few people have already made it clear they are there to ruin theirs. Kay and Jared plan out a foolproof way to get through the first week as a contestant, you're welcome for the free advice. They also discuss the day one connections, the deal with the older contestants, and what their hopes for the “life-changing twist”. As always, they finish with would you rather, fantasy suites/hometowns/send home, and weekly awards. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Bachelor in Paradise.

We Were On A Break (Rachel & Gabby Season Finale Pt. 2)
4458
Jesse Palmer was a week too early hyping up the drama, but it finally arrived. We’ve waited what felt like years for said drama, and it did not disappoint. We got proposals, we got breakups, we even got cheating. After a long season of lackluster relationships, Gabby finally gets her ring and Rachel gets her time in the spotlight. For the grand finale, they announced the most cliché man as our next Bachelor – Zach! The announcement basically had Kay begging for a recount. Kay and Jared swap theories on what happened behind the scenes with Rachel and Tino, share ideas on who the next Bachelor should have been, and as always, play a round of would you rather, fantasy suites/hometowns/send home, and weekly awards.

On this bonus episode, Jared and Kay talk to Natasha Parker (@natashaparker) about what she’s been up to since her time on The Bachelor/Bachelor in Paradise. She gives us an inside look to New York Fashion Week, shares some details about past relationships (trust us, it’s good), and her luck with dating apps.

The Jesse Who Cried Drama (Rachel & Gabby Season Finale Pt. 1)
4723
We finally got to watch the life-changing episode they promised us, and let’s just say it fell a little short of life-changing. Watching this live finale, in the words of Zach, “it was tough”. We had contestants self-eliminating, a surprisingly happy Tony, Grandpa John, and just a sprinkle of drama. For “the most dramatic finale ever” it really wasn’t that dramatic. Kay and Jared go into detail and share their thoughts on who is coming out of this with a ring on their finger. They finish off the episode with their usual rounds of would you rather, fantasy suites/hometowns/send home, and weekly awards. Plus they dive into the preview for next week’s episode.

Less Than Fantasy Suites (Rachel & Gabby Eps 9 &10)
3988
We finally made it to fantasy suites where we are gifted a two episode week. Night one we follow the dates of Gabby & Erich, Rachel & Aven, Rachel & Tino, and Gabby & Johnny. The second night we get an hour of Gabby & Jason, a little bit of Rachel & Zach, and a whole lot of unresolved drama that Jesse so graciously said we have to wait to see. Thanks Jesse! Its finally getting good and we have to wait! Kay and Jared discuss Gabby being left with – sorry, choosing, Erich and who they think would be the best fit for Rachel.

We get the inside scoop on what happens after the show wraps up – secret vacations and fancy Airbnbs, who knew? Jared also decided Joe’s life story needs to be a Hallmark movie and the plot just writes itself. He also jumps on the chance to talk grocery store comparisons and gets exclusive tips on how to pick the best produce. We also got the first official announcement of the wedding plans – at least the plans Joe has been telling everyone. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Gabby and Rachel.

The Men Tell Ads (Rachel & Gabby Ep 8)
3995
We were promised Men Tell All, instead we got ads, a hometown, and more ads. Starting the episode with a hometown was definitely out of place, but it somehow made the episode worth watching? Otherwise it would have been two straight hours of infomercials. The lack of villain appearances made it a relatively undramatic Men Tell All, which is not surprising based on the rest of the season. Roby was giving fan energy, Logan acting like he won the season, and Nate gave the performance of his life making use no one could poke a hole in his story. The grand finale – Meatball sticking to his sauce bit once again. Kay and Jared talk bloopers, glow ups, and finish with would you rather, fantasy suites/hometowns/send home, and awards.

Hometowns! With Special Guest Star, David Puddy! (Rachel & Gabby Ep 7)
4268
We made it to hometowns – Jared’s favorite episode of the season. We managed to get more emotion packed into one episode than we have the whole season. Jared and Kay talk through each guy’s hometown date, most of them were your typical Bachelorette style visit. But every year there is always one family that surprises us. This year that award went to Tino. Jared presents his theory behind what happened with the off-putting interaction while diving into how it could have been better.

Seems Like The Math Is Mathing Ft. @BachelorData
2984
On this bonus episode, Kay and Jared talk numbers with Suzana Somers of @BachelorData. Somehow Suzana figured out a way to make Excel entertaining, and guess what – it includes the Bachelor. Who gained the most followers? How much screentime does each contestant get? How many canceled cocktail parties were there? These are the hard-hitting questions and she’s got all the answers. Bachelor Data might be spoiler-free, but she does have some tea and theories that are worth diving into. Kay’s biggest question - what does the data says about who she should be hanging out with on the weekends? Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Gabby and Rachel.

Double The Girls, Half The Fun (Rachel & Gabby Ep 6)
3986
One week until hometowns! Don’t worry, we’re just as surprised and confused as you. Jared doesn’t feel comfortable meeting the families yet - we still don’t know anything about these guys! The lack of drama has really created a lack of interest in this two bachelorette format. We’ve got Nate who didn’t fight to stay and Tino getting a little too worked up after not getting the group date rose, but still very little drama. The previews promised us a part two to the Logan show, but what did we get? Covid. Well Logan got Covid, we just had to piece the puzzle together to figure out that he left. Kay and Jared talk favorites (of lack thereof), villains, and play a round of our favorite games. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Gabby and Rachel!

The Ol’ Switcheroo (Rachel and Gabby Ep 5)
4267
Somehow we’re only 2 episodes away from hometowns… but this week is apparently Logan week. ICYMI Logan is switching teams from Rachel to Gabby—‘the ol’ switcheroo’ as Jared puts it. And, Kay is so done with the Rachel sob story. Another rejection doesn’t warrant a canceled group date. Then, J and Kay discuss how Rachel and Gabby are the epitome of dating tropes: Rachel’s the disheartened dater who wants to be Cinderella, while Gabby’s the ‘chill girl’ who somehow knows how to handle everything. But, J and Kay wonder…can you be too chill? In Jared’s words, Gabby put together a team of ‘elm trees’ as her suitors. IMO, height puts blinders on personalities—how can you see when you’re trapped in the middle of the elm forest anyway? Look up Gabby - he’s lying to your face. Seriously though, what’s the deal with Johnny? He didn’t give us much. On the other hand, Rachel wants Mr.Right to pick her so badly, it’s inevitable that she’ll end up with Mr.Wrong. Finally, J and Kay finish up with the usual games of Would Your Rather & Fantasy Suite, Hometowns, Send Home. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Gabby and Rachel.

The Bar Is In Hell Ft. Brendan Scanzano (Rachel and Gabby Ep 4)
4204
It finally feels like we aren’t making things up as we go along. This week Kay and guest host Brendan Scanzano get into the details of who’s gonna make it and who needs to just go home. Rachel and Gabby head to Paris where they have their one-on-ones with Tino and Jason, all seems to go according to plan. Later we get two separate group dates, somehow both of them turn out to be all about Rachel. But the real tragedy was having to watch Rachel’s group date, unless you’re Kay who was kinda into it. Meatball tattletales on Hayden and Hayden therefor, walks the plank. Rachel sends him home after a half-assed heartfelt story about his dog. He somehow couldn’t understand that him going home wasn’t about the dog, but more about the amount of times the producers had to censor his choice words about Rachel and Gabby.

They solve all the problems with the show, including how to fix the two-Bachelorette format. Jared gives Claire and Emma three wishes on how they could make the show better and Kay shares her desire for a real-time feed with 24/7 footage.

Little Miss Rough Around The Edges (Rachel and Gabby Ep 3)
4076
Three weeks in and we finally have a clue of how this season is going to work… kinda. Rachel and Zach match personalities (or lack thereof) on their movie premiere date and producers use one of their lifelines to call in Grandpa John for Gabby and Erich’s bowling date. Kay and Jared want to know why we’re doing one-on-ones when we still have no idea who half these guys are. Maybe if they invite them all to a giant photoshoot wearing costumes, they’ll get to know them better? Lucky for us, Bachelor icon Franco (who?) is there to photograph the whole thing. At the end of the date, we have men coming out of the woodwork to tell Gabby “It’s not me, it’s you.” Hayden goes as far as saying she’s a little “rough around the edges.” Yet we have Rachel on the Rachel show crying because a few guys turned her down. Jesse announces enough is enough and the men must pick a side. Once again, we have another moment wondering if this is all improv. Finally, J and Kay wrap things up with some games: F*ck Marry Kill Fantasy-Suites edition, Top Picks, IG Rising Star, Cringe Harrison Award, and their Roses for the week.

The Frat Mansion & The Ladies Lair (Rachel & Gabby Ep 2)
4269
Welcome to frat mansion! Except at this frat party the ratio is slightly better than most. Two whole women! While the ladies have their very own lair this season, it also pays homage to the OG bachelor with zero-gravity and helicopter hot-tub dates. But Jared and Kay want to know more about Rachel and Gabby’s deliberation process. How do they decide who goes home and who gets a rose? In their lair? Then, Jared and Kay take a dive (lol) into the Speedo pageant. Rachel and Gabby want to see abs & so does Jared—duh. Next, they talk about Meatball Guy—dude you gotta have a second act. We also find out that the second you choose a woman, you’re kinda stuck. Unless you’re Logan, and you don’t choose. Ever. Meanwhile Nate has a daughter? And a dangling earring? Also, what’s up with Jordan V? No more strategy gatekeeping ABC! We want to see some two-on-two dates. Finally, J and Kay wrap things up with some games: F*ck Marry Kill Fantasy-Suites edition, Top Picks, IG Rising Star, Cringe Harrison Award, and their Roses for the week.

The Bachelorette premiere is finally here. Jared sits down with Tess Tregellas to break down every moment of the episode, from awkward first impressions to clumsy magic tricks to uncomfortable kisses. They point out the guys’ entrances that stood out, as well as their thoughts on which of them are really here for the long haul. They also get into the puzzling lack of structure to the episode, and how Gabby and Rachel fared in their first night as dueling Bachelorettes. As always, they round it all out by giving their Rose of the Week, as they set expectations for what the rest of the season might hold in store.

Breaking Down The Bros: Part 2 (Rachel & Gabby Season)
4191
ICYMI Jared and Kay have been combing through cast pictures and descriptions of Gabby and Rachel’s contestants for the season. In this episode, starting with Joey (#12 on ABC's Bachelorette 'Meet the Cast'), they finish up what they started last week. From the male twins on the show, to Johnny The Rapper (and scammer), to Disney channel original series looks, to the Van life, Jared and Kay get into it all. Jared and Kay even debate about Roby the magician’s magical potential. After all, if he’s a 6, but he’s a Magician, he might trick Gabby and Rachel into being a 10, and avoid being sent home on night one. Jared & Kay even discuss the new Minions movie fad (the ‘shock’ of Jared’s life: this is what single men are up to these days?). Plus, Jared shares his selfish dream of buying a second home and his candidacy for the next Bachelorette season (write in to help him with his profile). Finally, they share their hopes for the season.

2475
Kay and Derek are back for another “Bachelor In Paradise” marathon. With so much action they’re getting a little exhausted. Kay thinks Connor is pretty hot but Derek thinks he’s doing a “Mr. Cool” routine like Chris. Derek also can’t understand why these contestants keep lying to the audience.

At 15:31, Kay says she’s disappointed with this year’s glow ups, which gives Jordan an opportunity to defend his glow up strategy. At 27:00, Kay and Derek confess their love for Joe The Grocer and Jordan explains that he and Joe bro out extremely hard in the upcoming “Bachelor in Paradise”. Learn more about your ad choices.

2533
Betches gives a rose to your new hosts of The Betchelor, Kay Brown and Derek Peth! Kay and Derek sink their teeth into Tour Guide Becca’s Thailand adventure with the boys. At 7:33, they talk about Becca ruining this week's episode by saying she’s in love with Blake and Garrett, but only falling in love with Jason….bye Jason!

#23 Becca Has No Good Options
2018
Aleen says this was a good episode but nothing really happened at all. They talk about Garrett and his love for racist memes - Becca still doesn't know. They move onto Colton and how he's a virgin that can't drive. Isn't it cruel that they took him on a boat making sexual conk puns? Aleen finds him boyish. Sami is confused at why sports and football would preclude him from having sex. They theorize that he's gay because guys pretty much only want to have sex. So what's the deal, Colton? This is not to say all of the other guys aren't flawed as they definitely are. Blake, Colorado is not the state with the most sunshine. Jason has nothing to say. All in all, Becca got stuck with a bad lot. Discussing Garrett's beliefs, they talk about the male tendency to reduce a woman's action to a thing women in general do. They wrap up making predictions about the end of the season. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

#22 Is Lincoln The Dorit of Bachelor Nation? Ft. Alexis Waters
1848
Jordana and Aleen are joined by Alexis Waters to talk about this and past seasons of the Bachelor. She talks about listing her job as "Aspiring dolphin trainer", how she had to go with a shark costume, and mentions that she wouldn't "boom" anyone on this season. They move onto this season and agree that Jason is the frontrunner. Nobody likes Chris. Jordana thinks he seems like an angry Ben Stiller and/or Eddie, the crazy roommate from friends. Lincoln got sent home, but who cares? Sometimes Bachelorettes have really good style and other times their name is Becca. They wrap up talking about Scallops Girl. Learn more about your ad choices.

#21 Jordan is a Real Life Derek Zoolander
1820
Sami and Jordana have gotten complaints that they don't actually like the show, but they can't help it if it's objectively bad. They talk about Vegas - is it the perfect place to fall in love or the exact opposite? Sami views Becca's approval of Colton as obligatory. After, they move onto the Wayne Newton portion of the episode. Hopefully, one day we can live in a world where contestants don't have to write songs (or Google Wayne Newton). They talk about Jordan and his preoccupation with his skin care, hair care, and the gym. At 22:39, they play some games including "Shoot, fuck, marry" Jordan, Chris and David.

#19 We Wish We Had Seen Chicken Fall Off The Bunk Bed
1984
Aleen debuts on the Betchelor for this season of Bachelorette. She's mainly relieved that no one is saying, “Let’s do the damn thing." She and Jordana discuss Jordan, who may be good looking, but how often does he get a SECOND date? Everyone on the show is officially a climber. The Colton and Tia drama is ridiculous, but not as ridiculous as the faceplant situation with Chicken. Chris talks like a robot.

#18 Behind the Scenes Tell All Feat. Corinne Olympios
1725
Sami and Jordana are joined by Bachelor favorite Corinne Olympios to talk about this season and more. Regarding last night: the group dates are cheesy and the guys are overly dramatic. It all feels like sleep-away camp. And the forced meet ups with former contestants are way too much. They also talk about Corinne’s beef with Taylor and how the producers are milking stories just a bit too much (could it be the lack of breakout talent?). If you’ve ever wanted to know who Corinne was friends with and who she was ready to back stab at a moment’s notice, it’s a must-listen. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

#15 Arie Deserves Borin' Lauren
2010
Jordana and Aleen discuss the season finale of The Bachelor. Arie and Becca's awkward, silence-ridden end was emphatically undramatic. Aleen felt nothing. Arie's choosing of Lauren proves that exactly what everyone predicted: Arie just wants a 'hot dumb blonde bitch.' The most she ever opened up was her saying, "I want our dogs to meet." Arie's sole criteria appears to be that Lauren is very hot, which she is, but c'mon. Needless to say, they spend the whole episode criticizing Arie because as it turns out, his creepy hands were one of his better traits. Enjoy life with borin' Lauren, Arie- though we hope she turns you down. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Sami and Aleen talk about this week’s ep of the Bachelor. The gang heads to Ft. Lauderdale, but the contestants don’t seem to realize that those yachts aren’t Arie’s. As Sami puts it, “It’s just a show. When it’s your life, you’ll be going into debt with Arie as he runs out of Instagram endorsements.” The gentle Ft. Lauderdale breeze can’t soothe that kind of brutality. Sami and Aleen also agree they wouldn’t give up caring for their boyfriend’s niece or their Boston Terrier to be on the Bachelor.

#9 Krystal Speaks in Inspirational Instagram Captions
2064
Sami and Aleen cover this week’s episode of The Bachelor. Krystal’s voice is again a target, but her tendency to give speeches consisting of empty inspirational quotes shows that her weird voice is actually one of her better traits. She has issues. Aleen can’t stop cringing when Arie makes his moves, particularly on a certain 22-year-old. They conclude that Bekah actually has more maturity and poise than just about everyone, especially Arie. They wrap things up talking about glam-shaming, the controversial practice of calling people out for being too hot. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
