as far as Rachel I like her, but I'm not a fan of her also talking about first black. its always about color. I'm sick of hearing about race.

Dude, poor job with setting the scene on what this topic was about. I'm sure you have loyal fans and reg Bach viewers who follow every twist and turn but if you want to grow ur audience you need to provide even just 2 mins worth of context. I went back no prior episodes talk about this? is this some kind of stunt? I'm sure many ppl like me like realitiy stories but don't watch every episode, you lose audience because ur not inclusive with info. Castbox is promoting you right now and you can't even capitalize off of it. very fustrating almost like your teasing new listeners!

I really enjoy all the past contestants' interviews. I never saw the older seasons of the Bachelor, so hearing about the history of the show is very interesting. I also like hearing from the people who aren't as well known or who left early. Often they were my favorites early in they season so it's nice to hear from them.
