Big day today. Not only do we have Podcast #31 with Joe Bailey from Kaitlyn’s “Bachelorette” season & “Bachelor in Paradise 2,” along with the debut of the “He Said, She Said” podcast I’m collaborating with Sharleen Joynt on, but in a couple hours I’m headed to New York for the weekend for a family event. Not much of a touristy person, but I’m sure I’ll be people watching in Times Square later tonight. Anyway, Joe Bailey is Podcast #31’s guest and it’s really hard not to like this guy. It’s the accent. Seriously. Sure, two years ago during BIP the guy got himself involved in one of the uglier “scandals” when he was juggling Juelia and Samantha at the same time, but when you listen to today’s interview, it almost sounds like a completely different guy from back then. Funny guy, quick sense of humor, and he’s got some good stories to tell from his time on Kaitlyn’s season along with going in depth on everything that went down with the Juelia/Samantha situation. As always, if you wanna respond to today’s podcast, be sure to include Joe’s Twitter handle (@joebaileysego) in your replies. A real fun conversation with the guy as we also dove into his love for horses and I get an answer to a question I’ve had for a long time. Thanks to Joe for coming on. Hope you all enjoy our conversation.

(SPOILERS) Joe joins me and we start by talking about what it’s like being on the set of “Bachelor in Paradise” in lieu of what’s been going on this season, how he got cast on Kaitlyn’s season of the “Bachelorette” (14:13), choosing Kaitlyn over Britt (18:35), being king of the group dates and his wardrobe malfunction on the sumo date (24:06), his thought process as he kept getting bypassed for 1-on-1 dates (28:30), Kaitlyn and Shawn’s connection and how he helped facilitate their “alone” time (32:16), the Kaitlyn & Nick sex “scandal” (38:33), being on “Bachelorette” versus “Bachelor in Paradise” (42:25), the Juelia/Samantha situation that blew up and made him a villain (46:10), going on “After Paradise” & having to confront Juelia (59:20), his love for horses and what he’s doing now (1:03:05), and finally end with Rapid 10 (1:14:10).
Episode 1 of the “He Said, She Said” podcast with Sharleen Joynt is now up at Stitcher Premium. Click on that link, use the Promo Code: STEVE, and you can get the first month free. After that, it’s $4.99/month or $29.99 if you sign up for a year, which gives you access to all of Stitcher’s podcast library. Sharleen and I will be doing this podcast once a month where we talk about sex/relationships/dating and take your calls on any queries you might have. The first episode we have three callers with three different issues. One is actually a follow up to her call from back in Podcast #9 with Kacie Gaston, as Amanda from Chicago gives us an update on what’s been happening since her fiancé cancelled their wedding a month before it was supposed to happen. Lets just say things haven’t gotten better. Emma calls in about her boyfriend who’s taking forever to pop the question and doesn’t know what to do, while Abe has his first girlfriend ever, yet her ex is causing problems. I hope you check out the show and let us know what you think. Of course, if you want to be on next month’s show, contact myself or Sharleen and we’ll set up a time to record over Skype Audio. Excited about this new monthly show, Sharleen is excellent and no holds barred when it comes to her advice, and we even get a special appearance during Emma’s call from Sharleen’s fiancé Andy. Hope you all enjoy it.
