Bachelorette 17 / Episode 10 - Finale
In pretty epic fashion, Katie's season comes to a close. The major fallout from Greg's exit somehow seems to fade as she focuses on her future with Blake and Justin, only one of which ends up being a real option for her. There's the big I love you, ring shopping with Tayshia playing the role of Neil Lane and lots of uncertainty going into the big day. Kat O'Leary joins me to talk through this wild finale, what we think of the new couple and the season as a whole.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 9 - Hometowns
Diane Taha joins to co-host this week as we go into a very unusual hometown week which includes one guy who arrived late but made a splash, one who we hardly know and one who surprised us with a last minute farewell. We discuss what we think it all means for the season!

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 8 - Men Tell All
Kate Kaput joins me this week to discuss Michael A's sudden departure and the Men Tell All for a sing-a-long, totally unplanned audience kiss, phone-a-friend with Thomas and a segment highlighting Kaitlyn and Jason's engagement.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 6 - Let the Man Tears Flow
It's a bit of a roller coaster this week. Justin becomes more than just an endless list of facial expressions, as he goes on a 1:1 with Katie. The guys do a group date with “RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars” winners Shea Couleé and Monét X Change, where their roasts turn into a whine fest about Hunter. And we finally get a 1:1 date with Connor, which doesn't end the way I think most anticipated, with him back at the house picking up his luggage and for a tearful goodbye with the guys. We also talk a bit about Paradise because that beach time is getting mighty close!

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 5 - Bash Ball + The House Crasher
This week, I'm joined by a hometown friend of mine and long-time Bachelor watcher Jennie Berg to discuss our first complete Bachelorette episode in a while! Blake finally joins the guys and they love it every bit as much as anticipated, especially as she welcomes him with open arms and a 1:1 date. Yikes! Most of the house goes on a massive 13 person group date where one of the guys takes the competition a little too seriously. And we end with Andrew S finally getting his 1:1 in a sweet late night date with Katie.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 4 - Twinkies, T-Bell & Thomas
It's a half-episode week with a conclusion to last week's drama. There's a "Truth or Dare" date which involves no truths and pretty much all dares. The guys continue to confront Thomas' Bachelor dreams leading Katie to eventually do the same. And then there's the surprise entrance of one of the guys from both Clare and Tayshia's season, that seems to be here to tag in for Thomas. I'm joined by guest host Kat O'Leary to dig into it all.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 3 - Let's Get Personal
We pick up this week in the middle of last week's episode, awaiting Karl's fait. It's a quick exit for him, as Katie continues her decisive trend. The guys go on a group date that's all about revealing their not-so-stellar past moments, which offers some telling tidbits on the guys and prompts Katie to share something of her own. Michael A. has the 1:1 date, where we learn more about a sad part of his past. We're left again with no resolution as the guys confront Thomas about if he really came on The Bachelorette in hopes of being the next Bachelor lead.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 2 - From Cowboys to Camping
We're getting down to it this week with our first group dates of and the first 1:1 date. Katie surprised just about everyone in taking her first impression rose recipient, Greg, on that coveted 1:1 date where we learn they share more in common than we knew. We had our first "fighting for the lead" date, leading to a personal brawl and our first mid-date exodus this season. And of course the first group date puts the spotlight on Mike as it focused on the guys telling Katie why they're the world's best lover. We're left hanging though, with the rose ceremony not coming until episode 3.

Bachelorette 17 / Episode 1 - Limos in the Desert
We're back, and Kate Kaput is back with us to break down this season's premiere. We discuss this season's unique host sitch, some of the first episode's hits and misses (hello surgical skin salesman on the latter) and why someone really needs to sell zippers. If the promo delivers, we're in for quite a season!

Bachelor 25 / Episode 11 - Finale
Matt's journey came to a conclusion this week, with him making his big choice between Michelle and Rachael. I'm joined by guest co-host Diane Taha to discuss how it all went down, where we think the show let Matt (and us) down this season and how much we loved both his family and Emmanuel Acho. We also dig into the Bachelorette selection in addition to the announcement of the upcoming season(s) co-hosts!
60 minutes | Mar 12, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 10 - Fantasy Suites
My friend Kat O'Leary joins me to discuss Fantasy Suite week, which includes milk baths, tent pitching and Ghost pottery. We meet Matt's dad for a very personal moment that probably should have been off-camera. We end with what we dub a "Sexy Funeral" moment and us wondering what's to come in next week's big finale.
43 minutes | Mar 4, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 9 - Women Tell All
Leslie is back on the podcast to co-host as we take a look back at this season's Women Tell All. This week there was one glaring absence (Sarah), one surprise quasi-appearance (Heather) and several ladies given the possible Bachelorette edit -- but there was no resolution on who, if anyone, would be getting the role. We took some time to go through all this week's news in Bachelor Nation, specifically the controversy around Taylor Nolan's tweets, Rachel Lindsay's Instagram account suspension and what we're looking forward to with the guest host of the upcoming After the Final Rose.
57 minutes | Feb 25, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 8 - Hometowns at Nemacolin
This week, I'm joined by my friend Natasha, a Bachelor Nation newbie, to discuss this season's "Hometowns." We discuss family member standouts (Michelle's dad and Bri's mom), our current fave for Bachelorette and the surprise exit by one of the ladies. We also talk about some of the Bachelor News, including one of our leads who is back in the news from a possible reunion.

Bachelor 25 / Episode 7 - And Then There Were Four
This week was a hard week to summarize. We started with a summary of all of what's currently going on with the controversy regarding and subsequent statements from both Rachael Kirkconnell and Chris Harrison. Below are the different things mentioned in the episode if you have not already seen or listened to them: - Rachel Lindsay and Van Lathan's Reddit AMA: https://bit.ly/3dvoDlI; - Rachel and Van's episode on the Higher Learning podcast that goes behind the interview with Chris Harrison: https://apple.co/3k9ab3V; - The Blckchelorette's Instagram video in response to both the situation with Rachael Kirkconnell and Chris Harrison: https://bit.ly/37uW584; - Bachelor Data's analysis on the racial composition and screen time split for the women of Season 25: https://bit.ly/3k2AusJ It's a hard shift from the important topics in Bachelor news to go on to the episode, which made me think about skipping a recap at all. The second part of the podcast goes into this week's show mainly because we're finally getting to hear from so many of the women we haven't had enough time with thus far and I wanted to get the chance to talk about them and their stories. I'm joined by mental health advocate and blogger (https://preppyrunner.com) Theodora Blanchfield to discuss who goes home this week - some Matt's doing some self-selecting out, some of the questionable things they chose for these 1:1 dates and what we have in store for the rest of the season.

Bachelor 25 / Episode 6 - Ferris Wheels, Bowling Alleys & ... Minivans?
This week, Lara is joined by Cleveland lifestyle blogger Kate Kaput of Greastest Escapist (https://www.greatestescapist.com/) to discuss our lame excuse for a 2:1, one cute carnival date, the bowling date winner's evening that wasn't and the exit of our fan favorite peacemaker. We share our picks for this season's final four and a rundown on the latest batch of Bachelor news!
57 minutes | Feb 4, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 5 - Don't You Know That You're Toxic?
Lara's joined by guest co-host Gillian Clow as we discuss this week's big purge, Matt's big proclamation to Rachael, the looming 2:1 and who we think are our frontrunners for The Bachelorette.

Bachelor 25 / Episode 4 - Pumpkin Boats & Mean Girls
This week stirs it up as 5 new ladies arrive, 4 of which remain following the rose ceremony. Victoria sets her sights on some new targets and Anna starts some unfounded rumors on one of the ladies. We get to know more about Michelle and Chelsea and end with Katie calling Matt to step it up and take charge, as she continues her role of house MVP.
44 minutes | Jan 22, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 3 - Censored Pennsylvania Storytime
Inspired by "A Perfect Letter" (let's say we had NO idea), the ladies get dirty with storytime with Matt - and it becomes a bleepin' competition. Sarah starts to have doubts and battles being pulled home to her family. She also battles the others in the house, as she crashes the evening portion of the group date. Serena P gets her 1:1 time with Matt and we end with the exit of one of Matt's clear faves on her own terms.
36 minutes | Jan 17, 2021
Bachelor 25 / Episode 2 - Hot Tubs + Open-Eyed Kisses
This week, Matt went on his first one-on-one dates and the hot tub made an equal number of appearances. We have the largest group date possibly in the history of the show.
