After an impromptu greeting from Mr. Fitzwilliam Waffles, Sarah and Elyse chat with Leah and Bea from The Ripped Bodice about the most recent season of The Bachelor. They’re all fans of the series, and have a lot of perspective on it, on the multiple storylines presented in each season, and on what is going on beneath the surface, behind the scenes, and between all the people who tune in every week. If you’ve never watched it, don’t worry - things are explained, especially to Sarah, who can’t watch cringe-tv so reality programming is right out. They talk about the most recent season, the way the show frames sex, relationships, wealth, and the entire concept of reality, and what The Bachelor and romance fiction have in common. Plus, Elyse gives a quick squee about the new Beauty and the Beast movie.
