LET THEM EAT CAKE

2021-01-1259:06

Kay and Chris are thrilled to announce the permanent addition of Jared Freid to the podcast, and start with a recap of this week’s episode of The Bachelor. They begin with Bri’s one-on-one hot tub date and Matt chopping wood without a shirt (and maybe no underwear). BTW, is Matt James the hottest Bachelor ever? Then they dive into Victoria getting into an epic fight with… everyone on the show. Next, they discuss this week’s group date (why does every group date involve getting dirty?), Sarah’s airplane ride, and the cliffhanger rose ceremony. Then they hand out some awards for the week, including their list of ‘Fantasy Suities’ featuring their top 3 contestants, some Would You Rather questions, and this week’s Biggest Villain. Finally, Jared closes things out with his biggest takeaway of the episode, and they hand out a rose to the person they each think came out on top in week 2.
To help recap the premiere of Matt James’s season of The Bachelor, Kay and Chris are joined by Jared Freid of the U Up? podcast. They start with their immediate reactions to the first episode (did the dildo deserve all that screen time?) and tell us which contestants were actually memorable enough to get mentioned by name. Next, they run through the limo introductions (and in some cases truck intros) and Kay reveals which girl was inspired by The Betchelor to audition for the show. Later, they discuss this season’s setting, the inclusion of a 21-year-old, and who they liked best. Finally, they speculate about more girls joining the show in future episodes and where things go from here.
Kay and Chris return to recap the most unorthodox “Bachelorette” finale of all time. They begin by breaking down the world’s longest kiss on the franchise's most boring fantasy suite episode ever. Next they talk about Brendan’s odd ring shopping date with Neil who he was clearly discovering for the first time ever. Later they discuss how weird it was for Rachel Lindsey to show up unannounced. Finally they discuss how the show’s rules about eliminating contestants seems to have completely changed while none of us were paying attention.
