Podcast #96 – Interview with Mike Renner, & (EXCLUSIVE) Ten Women Who Will Appear on Colton’s Season

Photo Credit: ABC

A few things to get to today since I haven’t posted in a week. We’ve got our weekly podcast, this time with Mike Renner from Becca’s season. Also, I’ll give you some thoughts on the Jordan/Jenna situation, and exclusively I can reveal to you 10 women who will be appearing on Colton’s season. Three of them will be appearing on “Ellen” today (filmed yesterday) and already met Colton. Two of those three I had and are on today’s list. One of them I don’t know yet, but I’m guessing now that it’s out there, within hours, someone will tell me who she is. Kinda the way it works. UPDATE: Told you that wouldn’t take long. Got her. She’s been added to the list. Anyway, good to talk to Mike today and even though he only lasted 3 episodes on the season, still had some interesting stories from his time there, especially concerning Lincoln. Yes, the last half of the interview I go into sports talk mode as Mike and I talk nothing but football, so be prepared for that. I love nerding out on sports every once in a while, and Mike certainly knows his shit. I’m amazed at the work he and his company puts in to breaking down football. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Mike’s Twitter handle (@PFF_Mike) in your replies so he can see them. Thanks again to Mike for coming on. Hope you all enjoy it…

(SPOILERS) Mike joins me to talk about how he got cast (5:32), was his limo entrance of the Arie cutout his idea (9:11), did he recognize Clay (11:08), what his thoughts were on the 5 guys he saw on the ATFR that Becca met (14:05), what his problem was with Lincoln (19:31), how bored was he in the mansion (24:09), being on the football group date – his only date (26:33), did he think he was going home at rose ceremony #3 (29:33), post show disappearance – no Men Tell All or Paradise (30:31), his thoughts on some of the other guys in the house (32:55), we spend the next 30 minutes talking about his work for Pro Football Focus, what he does, his thoughts on players, teams, etc (37:52), and we end with the Final 10 (1:08:24).

I mention this at the beginning of the podcast, but for those that aren’t going to listen, here’s the update I’ll give on the Jordan/Jenna situation. I stand by my reporting. There’s nothing new to report. I don’t out my sources, so there’s nothing more to share. The story is 9 days old, Jenna has released 2 Instagram posts and that’s it. I haven’t heard from her, I haven’t heard from anyone involved from her legal team – nothing. I’ve moved on to Colton’s season. If Jenna does anything, then I’ll respond to it, but honestly, I don’t think she will because I don’t see anything she can do. And the longer she takes to do anything, the less I’ll believe it anyway. Her last IG post she mentioned this stuff takes “weeks.” Uhhhhh, no it doesn’t. If you have some sort of proof of anything, you would’ve posted it by now. Saying it’s fabricated on an IG post means nothing when you follow it up with nothing.

I’ve been sued by ABC twice. We settled twice. I never had to pay them a dime. I’m honestly not the least bit worried about anything that Jenna Cooper comes up with legally, to be honest. Bring it. I never had anything against Jenna. This isn’t personal. I didn’t have some sort of vendetta against her. I was given information that I vetted and reported with you all regarding their relationship, you heard her response to Jordan when he confronted her with it, you heard him on the podcast, he believes it was real, he ended the relationship, and she hasn’t done anything to disprove it. And if she does this late after the fact, not only will I not buy it, I doubt any of you will either. Lets move on to Colton’s season…

    Surprise, surprise. I listened to the entire podcast. I enjoyed Mike’s take on his time on the Bachelorette. Mostly enjoyed listening to both of you talking football. I think you should do a regular fantasy football segment.

    Well, at least Steve finally gave some sort of Jordan/Jenna update here – which he SHOULD have given on Twitter at the beginning of the week, after promising there was more to come and teasing us with “We’ve Only Just Begun”. If you want people to keep following you, you need to follow up on your promises. Even tweeting “I’ve decided not to pursue it after all” would have been something. But instead RS teased readers on Twitter and then went radio silent on the matter. Not cool.

    Also: “There’s nothing new to report”? Really, you were ready to spill a boatload of tea about Jenna a few days ago. Obviously something happened. It could be you got some legal advise in the matter, but I’m betting Jordan appealed to you not to kick a person (Jenna) when they’re already down, and maybe you had a spot of sympathy for Jordan and agreed. Whatever it is, at least own it.

    As for this group of contestants? Some random comments based on nothing but photos and descriptions:

    Steve’s cover contestant on this blog post might be the one to go the distance with Colton. Oh, wait, never mind, that’s Mike, the podcast interviewee.

    Nina – certainly has the requisite bare-almost-everything wardrobe already. But 4 years older than Colton? I’m thinking she’s a no-go.

    Revian Chang: Now there’s a wholesome, all-natural, totally not-seeking-fame contestant if ever I saw one.

    Katie Morton: She’s cute. Oh, look at that screenshot the one that talks about Katie: ONE word to describe you: “Ambitious”. Well, I think she hit the jackpot with this show. I predict BIP in her future. Or a serious relationship with a major athlete or other celebrity. Whichever comes first.

    Erika McNutt: Two pouty-face pics? What is she, 12? Major points deducted. Although, based on those poses, I could speculate that she’s as immature as Colton appears to be, and therefore they will get on well.

    Alex Blumberg: I applaud that she’s an entrepreneur and into helping animals. That’s awesome. But TBH, the plastic surgery (overly narrow nose) and colossal lips scare me, especially since she’s allegedly only in her 20s. Maybe there’s more to that story, like a serious car accident requiring PS or something? Either way, it’s concerning. It almost makes me want to watch part of the first episode, just to compare the photo with the actual person…

    Hannah Brown: Age appropriate for young Colton, and they will bond over anxiety/depression/feelings of isolation issues.

    @justa_viewer…..snarky, and I like it.

    These girls all look pretty cookie cutter to me. Take 10+ pics, find the best, post and include “clever” comment. Friends reply/like, “oh my god girl, fire!!!”

    token black girls- check. token asians- that’s new.
    erika looks like the villain.
    annie looks like she could be the annoying girl of the season (those eyebrows tho — eek)
    nina looks like she photographs well but will look different on camera- also potential villain of the season

    Is it a coincidence that Desiree and Danielle M. are already liking Hannah Godwin’s Instagram photos?

    I’m nosy! Please can you elaborate? I know both women were on Sean’s season, but what’s the connection etc., to Hannah?

  7. tinyred500

    September 21, 2018 at 10:20 AM

    Hannah and her clothing connections etc? 🙂

    I can’t stand it any more.

    You can’t “graduate college” anymore than you can “go college” or “arrive college.” In this instance, the verb “to graduate” is acting as an intransitive verb, and intransitive verbs cannot take on an object.

    I truly feel bad for Jenna. Shes one my favorite contestants to come out of the franchise. And ive been too obsessed with all things bachelor for awhile.

    If it is true… The only negative thing ive seen that Jenna has done/said is those texts. So its sad she had gotten SO much hate and little comfort/support from other contestants.

    If it isnt true… she will have a hard time proving it. Like how do you prove something that was fabricated? When she isnt clapping back to the haters, its hard to see things from her end.

    Looking forward to this season and all the drama it brings!

    RS’s pronoun use is atrocious too.

    Hi Steve. Thanks for the deets on Bachelor women.

    I have a tiny suggestion for improvement… The mobile version of your site is kind of confusing when looking for the latest, the main options seem to be for Becca’s season which is old news, and it takes a bit of digging through the menu to find Colton spoilers. There’s also still stuff from Nick & Ben seasons and stuff from 2015.

    Why not archive all the old stuff and make a clean slate focused on the current season? And also would be great to have separate articles for podcast and Bachelor etc so it’s not one long article mixing a bunch of stuff, so we can find stuff that interests us without weeding through long articles. Just a thought. 🙂 Thanks!

    I don’t think there are any token black / Asian girls this season – these women are gorgeous and remember Colton dated Aly Reisman whom some of the brunettes actually resemble. I think they got the right mix so far.

    The issue with this season will be if Colton is ready and mature enough for marriage, etc. since he’s kinda young. Bachelor is not a show to find your next girlfriend, but a lifelong partner.

    Based on how he approached Aly, and Bachelorette, and BIP, I think he is doing Bachelor 30% for publicity, 60% for fun and 10% for love.

    I would say Colton is in it 80% fame, 15% money, 5% love if that.

    Its about to get coconuts!!!!!

    Colton is all about fame and little else. Yes, you could say this about a few others too, he comes off as one of the worst though.

    I admit to zoning out during this podcast until I heard Josh Allen’s name. No control?? DID YOU SEE YESTERDAY?!

    Wow, Man-bun Mike! He’s intelligent, articulate, has a cool job and he’s good looking. Not a fan of the longish hair and think he’d be hotter with a short style, but he’s totally a catch. Wonder why the powers that be ignored him after the show – probably too normal.

    What irks me most about them picking Colton is how pourly he expresses himself…the man can hardly put two coherent sentences together! And he comes off so damn immature. I guess you can say that he’s good looking but his looks just do not appeal to me, and that might be that his personality (or lack of personality) makes him less attractive. I know I will probably watch, but if the 1st show is boring I may just stop watching. This is the least excited I’ve been for a new season…even worse than Arie or Nick. Ugh.
