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 an email from a listener, I don’t know why it took me 150 episodes to do this, but I will start links and promo codes to all the ads I run in that particular episode here and on the Episode Notes on your podcast app. I know a lot of you are driving when listening to this and can’t remember, or don’t write down any of the products or promo codes. Now you will have them here on this site and in the Episode Notes on your podcast app. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Mark’s Twitter handle (@marklwalberg) in your replies. I can’t wait for you to watch this season. Mark isn’t using hyperbole when he describes what you’ll see this season in today’s podcast. I’ve only seen 3 episodes so far, and it’s reeeeealllly good.
