Podcast #33 – Interview with Lauren Himle

To all those that were asking me yesterday about returnees from “Bachelor in Paradise,” yes, MOST of them are back. I strees most since there are still a few left out there who are your final couples. And I can guarantee we’re gonna be getting an engagement – or two. And I think you’ll be surprised. Stay tuned. As for today, Podcast #33 guest is Lauren Himle. You remember her from Ben’s season as well as a brief stint on BIP 3 last summer. Of course, I’ll remember her for her thick Midwestern accent that I make sure to try and expose during the interview. Too bad she was onto me. Lauren was never really involved in any drama during her time on the show, but she sure caused a bit of a stir after Nick was named “Bachelor” last season and she did a radio interview shortly thereafter calling him out for his relationship with Jen Saviano. We definitely touch on that in today’s podcast. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Lauren’s Twitter handle (@laurenMhimle) in your reply so she can see it as well. Super nice girl and it was great talking to her for today’s podcast. Hope you enjoy it. Since I only had two “Dr. Reality Steve” emails this week, I decided to push them back to next week when I suspect we’ll have more since we’ll be back on schedule.
