    Podcast #143 – Interview with Author & Media Literacy Advocater, Jennifer L. Pozner


    For years I have talked about the behind the scenes tricks and manipulations production does that the average fan who watches the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” franchise doesn’t have a clue about. I’ve given examples over the years, but kept it pretty surface level. This week’s podcast guest, Jennifer Pozner, is someone who’s done extensive research on this topic and written a book about it, as we dive into it in over a 90 minute conversation today. It’s pretty amazing what can be done to be honest, and Jennifer even makes you start critically thinking what you’re actually watching when you sit down on Monday nights to tune into this show. It’s a very long and detailed conversation that I guarantee will make you think about things regarding this show you never thought in a million years to think of. Before I get started with Jennifer, the first 15 minutes of the show I talk about yesterday’s twitter feud between Tanner and Demi, why I chimed in, and what seems to be getting lost in all … Continue reading

    We know that Paradise is changing, and I’m not sure it’s for the better. This was always the show that didn’t take itself as seriously as the “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette,” it was light hearted, it made fun of itself, and was just an easier watch. A fun summer show. With how much social media is exploding and how it’s framing storylines for Paradise, it’s just not the same show it once was. I tweeted this out last night, but I’m beginning to think BIP doesn’t know what it wants to be. A fun summer show? Well, we’ve all watched these first 4 episodes. Is anything about this season a fun summer show? I’d say no. The original concept of this show was put all the rejects from the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” on an island, give them a second chance at love, have them date each other, and see what happens. Those waters have been muddied now. Because if you date/hook up with more than one person while on the show, the other contestants start talking … Continue reading

    “Bachelor in Paradise” – Episode 3 Recap, #ClearTheList Movement, & More on the Blake/Caelynn Situation

    I’ve kinda always said this on past season’s but I wish BIP would stick to a strict schedule where the end of Tuesday night’s episode is the rose ceremony. We get the same thing during the “Bachelor/ette” seasons where sometimes episodes don’t end with a rose ceremony, and that’s just screwy. Throws everything off. You had 4 hours over 2 nights the first week of the season and they STILL couldn’t end last Tuesday with a rose ceremony. Yeah, I get it you had plenty of the Blake drama, but considering this episode started immediately with the rose ceremony, it was possible they could’ve done it. Maybe we’ll get rose ceremony #2 at the end of tonights episode, I don’t know. But just know there definitely isn’t a set pattern when it comes to BIP, so your guess is as good as mine tonight. We know who gets the roses so there won’t be too much suspense there. However, seeing some of these other smaller storylines play out was kinda interesting. I’ll get to those … Continue reading
