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!
If you felt that the Bachelor in Paradise finale was a continuation of last week’s episodes then, well, you’re right, because it was, including the love languages mumbo jumbo and all of the other stuff. In this last episode of our Bachelor Masters season the other stuff includes: attachments, detachments, miscommunication, misread signals, love, loss, trains, vans, a bad voice-over, blood diamonds, fashion, a kazoo, a tambourine, and some relationship roll playing. Hopefully we’ll leave you wanting even more as we head into the three month hiatus! Join us by pressing the play button and, as always, we’d love to hear from you on social media!
We recorded this episode early in the morning so it takes us some time to get into our groove. Once we do, Co-host Iciar leads us in an interesting conversation about “love languages” and even has all three of us co-hosts take the love languages quiz. It’s a result of the various Bachelor in Paradise couples having to cope with their coming break-ups (err, leaving Paradises together) and walls up and down and whatnot. If you’re sleepy, this is a great episode. If you’re wide awake, it’ll be a good preview for when you’re sleepy later. Either way, it’s awesome! Join in by pressing the play button!
A lot happens in this podcast episode that you won’t want to miss! Our frustrations continue to mount over the contestants and their tactics and threats, the Bachelor Masters’ perceived differences of opinions with Bachelor Nation, how Co-host Iciar and Co-host Craig are diverging their social media strategies, Co-host Caitlin’s hockey fandom woes, and, specifically, Derek, JPJ, and Tayshia. Whoa, that really is a lot! We’d love to have you join in, so hit the play button and also hit us up on our divergent social media!
The contestants and their vocal fry (and, lets face it, their personalities) have led the Bachelor Masters hosts to boil over with mixed emotions. Consequently, there are some good old fashioned Bachelor Masters arguments in this episode. Is John Paul Jones an evolved man or a creeper? Is Tayshia manipulative? Is Derek’s podcast to blame for any of the others’ actions? Is the Amazon forest burning for economic gains or displacement of Indigenous peoples? (We’re not kidding, the Amazon fire is going to ruin us all.) All that and more, simply hit the play button to join us!
In this episode where Co-host Iciar humbly debuts the Bachelor Masters History drop, we discuss Greenland (the autonomous region with the red and white flag), Co-host Caitlin’s insider knowledge of figure skating (and Jersey Shore), and Co-host Craig’s high school suspension (for fighting). We also talk about all of the Bachelor in Paradise cast members (and Kristian). Click the play button and join in (on the fun)!
Sure, we talk about shaming and shamers shaming and shamers being shamed. Though we also try to make sense of the many characters that are being presented to us (a record number, who knew?). Included are some hot takes, per usual for the Bachelor Masters, and some less than hot takes, such as our per usual distaste for Caelynn. Where do our opinions fall on Blake in the second week? Demi? Nicole? Christian? You’ll have to hit the play button to find out! As always, we’d love to hear from you on social media, @ or DM or otherwise, if you agree or disagree or otherwise!
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!
Here’s our final episode of the season before we take the long break until next week for the start of Bachelor in Paradise. We could try to list everything we talk about here, but it’s weaved together so nicely in the audio we wouldn’t do it justice. Hey, it’s been a long season so we think we’re allowed to pat ourselves on the back? Like Jed did when he “won the show”? Click the play button and join us, and sorry for the bad sound quality: blame Skype, or Spectrum internet, or both!
Just in time for your Sunday podcast listening the Bachelor Masters come at you with an episode that might accidentally equate Peter to astronauts, still wonders what people see in Tyler, critically examines Jed’s manipulation, and coins the phrase “evangelical boxing.” Actually we don’t know if we say evangelical boxing in this episode or if Co-host Craig came up with it while writing this description, it’s late in the week now and he’s in Ohio where the heat and humidity is impacting his memory. Whether we did or didn’t, Co-host Iciar definitely coins the phrase, “similarly in love,” so you’ll definitely enjoy this episode! Click the play button and let’s go!
Poor Peter, he’s not going to win. Hannah, we conclude, doesn’t want his life out here in Communist California. We discuss that and, of course, the other hometown dates and wonder what actually constitutes one’s hometown. Throw in various tangents about the San Fernando Valley, memes, religion, and Florida (the usuals for this season) and add in a mom who could someday be the star of her own murder mystery on Lifetime and you got one great Bachelor Masters episode. Hit the play button and join us!
As you might expect, Co-host Craig wants to skip right to the end of the two hour episode and talk about the radioactive Hannah-Luke preview. Fortunately for the sake of the podcast, Co-host Iciar is able to maintain a fair amount of structure to our conversation. Though we still talk a lot about the Hannah-Luke preview, because, really, who doesn’t want to talk about a nuclear disaster like that? We also discuss the other guys along with religion, mental health, past Bachelorettes, future Bachelors, and how all TV editors in Hollywood are (allegedly) drunks. Keep comin’ along for the ride by pressing the play button and listening in!
We start out by debating whether Luke’s uncomfortably large gold cross is virtue signaling or dog whistling. Then we get into Luke’s various remarks to Hannah, including his body-is-temple bit, that was probably pulled from Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians. We verge on a heated argument around misogyny, racism, and neurosis, with the lines drawn in ways we didn’t expect, ending up at some conclusions that we hope will help out come next week as we continue to try to figure out Luke and (if the previews are to be trusted) his continued shaming of Hannah. Whew. There’s a lot here! Try to figure it all out at the same time we do by pressing play and joining us! Fashion Roundup at the end!
We were thinking about naming this, “No rose, no problem,” but decided to stay away from discussion of the guys. Instead, after five episodes of favorable reviews of Hannah, we now, unfortunately, start to turn on her. Particularly, we make one of our deeper dives ever on her statements around religion and sexuality such as her “believe … created … but” line. You’ll get a lot out of it, but then again, we seem to have been wrong about Hannah so we can be wrong here, too. Take the risk that you will by clicking play and joining us!
An exceptionally sleep-deprived Co-host Craig coupled with a perfectly caffeinated and well-articulating Co-host Iciar makes for deep dives into critical subjects that would decompress Jules Verne. It’s good late-night listening. Err… if you only listen during the day then it’s great for that, too. Hit play and join us for this sleepy and excited wild ride!
This episodes tasks us with a trip to the right coast. After gushing about his love for New England, Co-host Craig turns his attention to Jed who makes all of his basketball shots. Like, all of them. Even the one facing backwards while kissing Hannah. It seems that all of this is pointing toward Hannah and Jed becoming good friends some day in Nashville, where all Bachelorette friendships flourish. And, hey, sorry for posting this episode so late in the week… Please hit play and listen anyways, because despite the lateness there is still lots of cool Bachelor Masters content!
We weren’t in a tangenting mood this time around, a result of this messy episode we are charged with critiquing. Our conclusions are varied and we ultimately blame editors, producers, contestants, us viewers…. but not Hannah. She rocks. A shorter podcast episode begets a shorter podcast description! Hit play and join us!
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!
For what is probably the first time in Bachelor Masters history, Co-host Craig actually likes the episode. And this is wild too: Co-host Iciar doesn’t like the episode. At least that’s what both of them say before going on about Hannah, that Scott guy, that Luke guy, why she even gives roses to any of the guys, jackets, morality, quitting jobs, and, well, that Luke guy again. It’s all here in our third podcast episode of the season! We’re still sans Chris, but please listen anyway!
