01:12:34

A wise man once said, "Episode two is where people really show their true colors." MC Cam leads the way with several jarring tactics, while Luke P. storms ahead of the pack with an early (to put it mildly) declaration of love and a few secret, steamy rendezvous. Also, Mike.

"Figure It Out" | 'The Bachelor' S23 E6 Recap
01:15:00

At this point in the season, everyone knows who is ready to say "yes" and who is just along for the ride. Everyone except Colton, anyway, which is either endlessly frustrating or wonderfully entertaining. Plus: Another one-on-one date that probably deserved to be pixelated, speculation about a possible MTV Challenge crossover, and more.

"Squashed" | 'The Bachelor' S23 E4 Recap
01:05:59

On dates and in dim hotel rooms, the contenders separate themselves from the pack. There are now five or six people we just can't imagine Colton sending home. Will the infamously indecisive lead falter down the stretch? Plus: The pageant rivals resolve their conflict, and a luxury shopping trip raises tension in the house, just as the Bachelor gods intended.

Though she can barely see over the microphone, Demi stands tall as one of the most formidable competitors in franchise history. Plus: Hannah B.’s day date debacle, new contenders emerge, old pageant wounds reopen, and apparently the vast majority of Bachelor viewers are now considered “cougars” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The tables turned at the wild after-show reunion, and an off-screen scandal threw Bachelor world of its axis. Join us for the last Paradise recap of 2018.

After a few bumps in the road, Kendall seems ready to commit to Joe, America's sweetheart. Elsewhere, Leo loses it, Eric moves his own cheese, and some couples are ready for the real world. [Kip from Napoleon Dynamite voice] I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.

What a finale. Blake's heart sank to the bottom of the ocean, while Becca seems ecstatic to be with Garrett. We recap it all, from the family dinners to the proposal to the AFTR controversy discussion. (Side note, our audio was acting weird and we couldn't really talk at the same time. So when you hear silence from one of us after the other makes a great joke, just know we're silently laughing to ourselves.)

Was it enough to warrant next Bachelor consideration? And how will Blake react if his worst fears are realized two weeks from now? Probably not stoically.

Recapping the five-hour, two-night finale, in all its chaos and controversy. How do we think ABC handled Arie's change of heart? Should Becca and Arie's breakup have been televised? What do we expect from Bachelorette Becca? Has there ever been a less enthusiastic crowd to witness a live proposal? Plus: A loaded Rosebag.

"We're Not Doing A Skit" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E8 Recap (Hometowns)
01:00:39

We were promised confrontation, and ABC did not deliver. In a mostly unmemorable Hometowns episode, Arie managed to win over every family from the East coast to the West. After a shocking rose ceremony, who do we think will be wearing some Neil Lane at the end of all this? Plus: Some Winter Games talk and a loaded Bouquet.

Contender sacrifice, cats and dogs living together ... mass hysteria! The last episode before hometowns was filled with surprises. Seemingly weak connections were solidified while relationships that steadily grew for months were shattered in an instant. Should Arie have kept Seinne or Bekah? Is Lauren B. a serious contender? All that, and a breathtaking text hits the Bouquet.

"Krystal Musk" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E5 Recap
01:01:19

Fun. Passionate. Sad. Emotional. Excited. Futuristic. These are just a few of the different layers Krystal revealed to Arie in the latest breathtaking episode of 'The Bachelor." From the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale to the posh lobby of their hotel in Fort Lauderdale, this week was a whirlwind of love, drama, and outright deceit. The days of Chelsea's villainy have disappeared over the horizon in our rear view mirrors, and Tia has stepped to the fore by becoming the first to "profess her love" for Arie. Make of those quotation marks what you will. 


Timestamps: Chelsea one-on-one date (3:00); Group date - daytime (15:30); Group date - nighttime (20:15); Tia one-on-one date (33:330); Cocktail party (42:45); Rose ceremony (51:20); The Rosebag aka the Bouquet text line (54:30)

The follow-up to last week's dull episode was anything but: Krystal's ratcheted everything up a full notch, Bekah finally revealed what should have been obvious to Arie (she's pretty young, dude), and Seinne secured a one-on-one date with enough heartfelt moments for a nice Bachelorette highlight reel. Plus: A chaotic outdoorsy group date nearly takes a fatal turn.

"Kisses Used To Mean Something Around Here!" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E3 Recap
00:58:13

It was a tough week for Arie guys such as ourselves. Our fearless lead just kind of floated through the episode, showing little interest in the group date activities and spending more than half of his alone time with his lips locked with the nearest warm body. Not even comedy legend Fred Willard could save one of the two disastrous group dates, which were not nearly as fun as Chris promised. Plus: Lauren's trainwreck of a one-on-one and the newest Annaliese phobia.


Timestamps: GLOW pro wrestling group date (a disaster) (3:15); Group date nighttime (11:30); Lauren S. winery date (also a disaster) (19:30); Some sort of dog-themed group date? (29:45); Group date nighttime (34:15); Cocktail party (39:15); Rose Ceremony (46:15); Mailbag aka The Rosebag (51:45)

"Shout Out Cardi B" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E2 Recap
01:02:36

Arie's second episode included some truly head-scratching one-on-one dates. Between Becca's jaw-dropping sugar daddy date and Krystal's private jet visit to Arie's hometown, it felt like ABC accidentally aired Week 8 instead of Week 2. Plus: Are we willing to make light of an alleged childhood bumper car trauma? And should ABC blur out some of the more intense makeout sessions?


Before you start the episode, Rim needs to come clean on one thing: We spent about 10 minutes discussing the value of Becca's luxury haul (Rachel Zoe dresses, Christian Louboutin shoes, earrings, necklace, and bracelets from Neil Lane), and while AB tried to convince me Becca did not get to keep the necklace and bracelets, I insisted she did. I was incorrect. Hand up, that's on me.


Timestamps: Weird episode! (1:15); Shameless self-promotion and message for Olay (1:45); First date card of the season (3:20) Becca K. date - daytime [and bonus uninformed jewelry takes] (5:05); Jealousy brewing back at the house? (11:15); Nighttime portion of Becca's date (13:00); Second date card (13:30); Becca and Arie get deep (14:35); Becca gets to keep the diamonds!!

Helicopter Kalon dug deep in the mud of the latter, and in the process got himself tossed off the show like a basketball coach who gets two quick technical fouls on purpose so he can make a dinner reservation. Also of note: Arie and Emily make out again.
