    Podcast #138 – Interview with “Paradise Hotel” Winners, Tatum Smith and Bobby Ray


    Taking a one week break from all things “Bachelorette” related to bring you the winners of “Paradise Hotel” this season, Tatum Smith and Bobby Ray. The interviews are done separately since, well, they don’t talk anymore. You can find out all about that while listening to the podcast today and draw your own conclusions. One thing I will say for “Paradise Hotel,” while it may have gotten episodes cut only a week in and didn’t do well in the ratings, like you’ll hear Bobby say in the podcast, that finale had a lot going on. Definitely was an entertaining finale with numerous twists and turns. And we’ve seen the “will you choose love or money” twist before, but the way this show did it I thought was the best version of that we’ve seen before. We go over it in the podcast in case you didn’t watch, and you’ll hear Tatum and Bobby both give very different accounts of what they thought the other person would do. Very fun stuff this week with both of … Continue reading

    I’m sure you know by now I enjoy reality TV. I don’t take it seriously as most people as you can probably tell by the tone of my columns, but it’s mindless entertainment. I’m only watching “Big Brother” this season for the first time ever (outside of the two celebrity editions) because Holly Allen is on and I wanna see how she does, but I’ve just never been interested in committing three nights a week to a reality show. Well, then “Love Island” drops in our laps last night, and dammit, I’m interested…for now. For those that don’t know, CBS picked up “Love Island” for 22 episodes and they are running them consecutively. It’s on 5 nights a week for a month straight (outside of Sat & Sun). That’s a hell of a lot of commitment you’re asking for TV watchers. No reality show has ever done this. Also, every “dating” reality show that’s come after the “Bachelor” has failed miserably. Now you’re telling people to watch every night for a month? I mean, I’m … Continue reading

    One of the best parts of my job that I’ve talked about over the years has been the perks that come with it. I’m not necessarily a “product guy.” The perks I’ve always spoke about have been just being able to be my own boss, not answering to anyone, having the ability to come and go as I please, etc. That’s what I love about what I do. But every once in a while, a company will reach out to me and send me some free stuff. All the products you hear me talk about in the ads on my podcast I’ve been sent a sample of beforehand. So that’s been cool. But someone came to me last week completely out of the blue. And this wasn’t for payment, as of now they aren’t advertising anywhere on the site (they might end up on the podcast), and they specifically said this isn’t something I needed to talk about in return for receiving the product, but if I wanted to, I could. Well, I’m going to. … Continue reading
