The show we’ve been waiting for is finally here. Paradise is already proving it has superior mess and drama that we cannot wait to watch.

Kay and Jared plan out a foolproof way to get through the first week as a contestant, you're welcome for the free advice. They also discuss the day one connections, the deal with the older...

Jesse Palmer was a week too early hyping up the drama, but it finally arrived. We’ve waited what felt like years for said drama, and it did not disappoint. We got proposals, we got breakups, we even got cheating. After a long season of lackluster relationships, Gabby finally gets her ring and Rachel gets her time in the spotlight. For the grand finale, they announced the most cliché man as our next Bachelor – Zach! The announcement basically had Kay begging for a recount. Kay and Jared swap...

We finally got to watch the life-changing episode they promised us, and let’s just say it fell a little short of life-changing. Watching this live finale, in the words of Zach, “it was tough”. We had contestants self-eliminating, a surprisingly happy Tony, Grandpa John, and just a sprinkle of drama. For “the most dramatic finale ever” it really wasn’t that dramatic. Kay and Jared go into detail and share their thoughts on who is coming out of this with a ring on their finger. They finish off...

We finally made it to fantasy suites where we are gifted a two episode week. Night one we follow the dates of Gabby & Erich, Rachel & Aven, Rachel & Tino, and Gabby & Johnny. The second night we get an hour of Gabby & Jason, a little bit of Rachel & Zach, and a whole lot of unresolved drama that Jesse so graciously said we have to wait to see. Thanks Jesse! Its finally getting good and we have to wait! Kay and Jared discuss Gabby being left with – sorry, choosing,...

On this bonus episode, Jared talks with Grocery Store Joe (@joeamabile1) and Serena Pitt (@serena_pitt) about their experience on The Bachelor and all things grocery. We get the inside scoop on what happens after the show wraps up – secret vacations and fancy Airbnbs, who knew? Jared also decided Joe’s life story needs to be a Hallmark movie and the plot just writes itself. He also jumps on the chance to talk grocery store comparisons and gets exclusive tips on how to pick the best produce....

We were promised Men Tell All, instead we got ads, a hometown, and more ads. Starting the episode with a hometown was definitely out of place, but it somehow made the episode worth watching? Otherwise it would have been two straight hours of infomercials. The lack of villain appearances made it a relatively undramatic Men Tell All, which is not surprising based on the rest of the season. Roby was giving fan energy, Logan acting like he won the season, and Nate gave the performance of his life...

We made it to hometowns – Jared’s favorite episode of the season. We managed to get more emotion packed into one episode than we have the whole season. Jared and Kay talk through each guy’s hometown date, most of them were your typical Bachelorette style visit. But every year there is always one family that surprises us. This year that award went to Tino. Jared presents his theory behind what happened with the off-putting interaction while diving into how it could have been better. As always,...

On this bonus episode, Kay and Jared talk numbers with Suzana Somers of @BachelorData. Somehow Suzana figured out a way to make Excel entertaining, and guess what – it includes the Bachelor. Who gained the most followers? How much screentime does each contestant get? How many canceled cocktail parties were there? These are the hard-hitting questions and she’s got all the answers. Bachelor Data might be spoiler-free, but she does have some tea and theories that are worth diving into. Kay’s...

One week until hometowns! Don’t worry, we’re just as surprised and confused as you. Jared doesn’t feel comfortable meeting the families yet - we still don’t know anything about these guys! The lack of drama has really created a lack of interest in this two bachelorette format. We’ve got Nate who didn’t fight to stay and Tino getting a little too worked up after not getting the group date rose, but still very little drama. The previews promised us a part two to the Logan show, but what did we...

Somehow we’re only 2 episodes away from hometowns… but this week is apparently Logan week. ICYMI Logan is switching teams from Rachel to Gabby—‘the ol’ switcheroo’ as Jared puts it. And, Kay is so done with the Rachel sob story. Another rejection doesn’t warrant a canceled group date. Then, J and Kay discuss how Rachel and Gabby are the epitome of dating tropes: Rachel’s the disheartened dater who wants to be Cinderella, while Gabby’s the ‘chill girl’ who somehow knows how to handle...

It finally feels like we aren’t making things up as we go along. This week Kay and guest host Brendan Scanzano get into the details of who’s gonna make it and who needs to just go home. Rachel and Gabby head to Paris where they have their one-on-ones with Tino and Jason, all seems to go according to plan. Later we get two separate group dates, somehow both of them turn out to be all about Rachel. But the real tragedy was having to watch Rachel’s group date, unless you’re Kay who was kinda...

Three weeks in and we finally have a clue of how this season is going to work… kinda. Rachel and Zach match personalities (or lack thereof) on their movie premiere date and producers use one of their lifelines to call in Grandpa John for Gabby and Erich’s bowling date. Kay and Jared want to know why we’re doing one-on-ones when we still have no idea who half these guys are. Maybe if they invite them all to a giant photoshoot wearing costumes, they’ll get to know them better? Lucky for us,...

Welcome to frat mansion! Except at this frat party the ratio is slightly better than most. Two whole women! While the ladies have their very own lair this season, it also pays homage to the OG bachelor with zero-gravity and helicopter hot-tub dates. But Jared and Kay want to know more about Rachel and Gabby’s deliberation process. How do they decide who goes home and who gets a rose? In their lair? Then, Jared and Kay take a dive (lol) into the Speedo pageant. Rachel and Gabby want to see abs...

The Bachelorette premiere is finally here. Jared sits down with Tess Tregellas to break down every moment of the episode, from awkward first impressions to clumsy magic tricks to uncomfortable kisses. They point out the guys’ entrances that stood out, as well as their thoughts on which of them are really here for the long haul. They also get into the puzzling lack of structure to the episode, and how Gabby and Rachel fared in their first night as dueling Bachelorettes. As always, they round...

In this episode, starting with Joey (#12 on ABC's Bachelorette 'Meet the Cast'), they finish up what they started last week.

Jared and Kay are back after a (way too long) offseason full of breakups and proposals – which did they see coming and which came out of nowhere? They also debate the two-Bachelorette format for the season, and why it was time to mix things up. Then it’s time for every Betchelor fan’s fav time of year, as they comb through the list of preseason cast pictures, starting with the first half of the guys vying for Rachel and Gabby’s attention.

Kay and Jared are back for the last episode before going on a very much needed and well-earned hiatus.

Kay, Jared, and Chris are back for the dramatic conclusion of Clayton’s season! They start with their impressions of the episode as a whole and then get into all details. They talk about Clayton’s unwillingness to let Susie go and the bizarre circumstances of their eventual conversation. They also wonder how the hell he thought breaking up with two women at the same exact time was acceptable in any way (beats us). After that, they get into the weeks categories. Finally, Chris has a big...

It’s finally here. Part one of the most DRAMATIC season finale EVER has arrived. Kay, Chris and Jared pick up right where we left off last week, with the Rose Ceremony from Hell. They get into Clayton "following his heart" by telling three women he’s in love with them, and just how he managed to convince Gabby and Rachel into meeting his family after they seemed so ready to call it quits. They also discuss how Clayton’s family took it all in, and how shocked they seemed to be about just how...
