    Podcast #83 – Interview with the “Bachelor” Season 5’s Trish Schneider Cullins


    Gotta say it’s refreshing sometimes to talk to contestants that aren’t part of the current era of Bachelor Nation. Definitely got that today in speaking with Trish Schneider Cullins, who was arguably the first true villain this franchise ever had. She appeared on season 5 of the “Bachelor” with Jesse Palmer and made quite the name for herself. You still see her listed to this day as one of the all-time villains in any list a media outlet does when talking about past contestants. Then again, that was also 2004 that Trish was on and she basically set the standard. Now none of her stuff would be considered all that scandalous since we have characters like her essentially every season. But back 14 years ago, yeah, it was quite a big deal and she’s the contestant everyone was talking about the next morning after the “Bachelor” aired. We get into all of the antics she was involved in during today’s podcast, along with what she was doing before the show and what she’s been up … Continue reading

    You know I love taking it back old school on occasion with my podcast guests, and this week is a perfect example of it. Inevitably when some media outlet does a countdown list of dramatic moments, or lists of show’s villains, Trish Schneider will always be a part of it. And she should. She is the original “villain” of this franchise. There had been 4 seasons of the “Bachelor” and two “Bachelorette” seasons that had aired before Jesse Palmer’s season began. In those 6 seasons there were certainly characters, but no one had ever been established as a true “villain,” like the one everyone was talking about at work the next day. That is until Trish came around. We talk about all the things that happened on her season that gave her that villain status, what she was up to before the show, what she’s been up to since and how her time on the show affected her personal life. It’s a fun conversation and I’m glad I found her to come on and tell … Continue reading

    Man, I feel like I’ve been living out of a suitcase since Becca’s season started only four weeks ago. I guess because basically I have. The weekend before she began, I was in Denver for my first stop on my Summer Tour. Then two weeks after that I was in Vegas for my Fan Appreciation Party. Then this week is Tour Stop #2 as I head to San Francisco. I don’t think there will be any sort of “official” meet up this weekend, but once I’m settled in, Friday night I’ll be tweeting out where I’ll be and I’ll let people know. I’ll take any suggestions since I haven’t been to the Bay Area since college. Saturday I will be at the Giants game in the outfield bleachers Section 143 if anyone wants to attend that. I’ll be watching the game from my seat for the most part, but will also walk around the behind the seats for some portion of the game. Let me know in advance if you’re attending. Next month, I will … Continue reading
