Bachelorette Becca Spoilers

A Recap of Hometown Dates, Bachelor in Paradise Update, and a Big Night Tonight

Colton Underwood 26, Los Angeles, CA. Filmed Sunday April 22nd in Aurora, CO. Colton and his family grew up in Indianapolis and he went to college in Illinois, but his parents (now divorced) both live in Colorado so that’s where his hometown date was.


Garrett Yrigoyen 29, Reno, NV. Filmed yesterday, April 24th in Manteca, CA. Garrett’s parents live in Manteca and it’s where he grew up, even though he lives in Reno now. They also visited Garrett’s high school and his parents’ farm. This picture was out in front of Garrett’s neighborhood:


Something else that I mentioned on Twitter last week was the fact that last weekend was “Bachelor in Paradise” testing weekend. If you followed along, a lot of former contestants who don’t live in LA were either posting on their IG stories they were on planes or in hotels…that’s because they were in LA for BIP testing. Just because you were on a previous season (or even Becca’s season) doesn’t mean they just call you up, ask you to be on, and then you’re on. Everyone has to go back in for testing. Medical is all done through the mail, but they bring people in to talk to producers again, answer the psych test questions, talk to the psychologist, meet with lawyers to discuss things that happened last season and basically give them the lowdown on what to do if you see something you’re not comfortable with etc. However, just because someone might’ve been in LA doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll get on the show. That’s why it’s called testing. Hell, some might even get flown to Mexico in the first week of June and told they’ll be on the show and still not make it on like our podcast guest from a couple weeks ago Mikey Tenerelli told us happened to him. So I won’t know the cast until we get closer to filming, which has always been the first week of June for the first four seasons of the show. I doubt that’s going to change.

Back tomorrow with podcast #75 as I’m joined by Bachelor Nation veteran, Michael Garofola. An almost 2 hour conversation with Michael that I really enjoyed. I think you’re gonna like it as well. It was fun going through the three shows he went on and taking a trip down memory lane. Look for that tomorrow.

    I don’t get why if Jason’s parents live in Charlotte, he lives in Seattle why they filmed in Buffalo. Just go to Charlotte or fly his parents to his place in Seattle. That is just weird using some random guy’s house, use a hotel.

    Colton is too young at 26 to get married.

    I’m still betting on Garrett.
