    If there are two things the thirteenth installment of The Fast & the Furious franchise taught us this summer, it’s that 1) People really enjoy watching bald men beating the sh*t out of bad guys while stopping mid-punch to say something quippy and 2) There will always be something new and shiny to blow up onscreen – and that includes relationships. Temptation Island doesn’t exactly fall into the Action movie category. Not one literal explosion occurred last season and nobody participated in a high-speed car chase over a rickety bridge like the boys who hail from Fast & Furious Land – soon to be a theme park attraction the moment Disney buys yet another studio! – but a sh*tload of emotional implosions did go down. Remember? Three couples broke up, two relative strangers got engaged, and the former long-term live-in girlfriend of the now-betrothed-to-another had her heart fileted on national television as she sat beside a motherf*cking bonfire.

I was supposed to have another guest this week for the podcast, but things fell through, so for this week, it’s just Ashley. I spend the first 15 minutes discussing what’s going on in Peter’s season for those who aren’t following along on Twitter and IG. Also, I talk a little bit about the Rachel/Raven feud that I’m still continuously asked about on a daily basis. Have I heard what the issue is? Yes. But it’s not my place to chime in. If they want to address it, they will. I do however question the way in which Rachel is bringing this story about. I just don’t get it. The whole thing just sucks all around for … Continue reading

    Podcast #150 – Interview with “Temptation Island” Host Mark Walberg


    Oh boy, a lot to get to today after what happened on yesterday’s 1-on-1 date. The first 20 min or so of today’s podcast is a breakdown of everything I know up to this point regarding Victoria Fuller, her 1-on-1 date with Peter yesterday, and her past with Chase Rice, who performed on the date. Then, we bring in “Temptation Island” host Mark Walberg to give us a preview on season 2. A casting special airs tonight on USA (and is also up online at which shows how the couples this season were chosen. You see their interviews in LA meeting with production, and then production meeting to determine who they’re choosing for the show and why. Some good stuff there since these are the same exact type of interviews Bachelor/ette contestants go through during final casting week. Then next week on the 10th, and every Thursday night after that, “Temptation Island” begins. However, you can watch episode 1 now as it’s online. I’ve embedded the episode below to check out. Also, thanks to … Continue reading
