Talking to some of the “Temptation Island” singles this week in Medinah Ali and Kareem James. Interesting perspective from two people who knowingly went on a show where the people they were courting were already in relatinships. Medinah is a blast, full of energy, has her own podcast, and definitely had an interesting perspective on why she chose to do the show. Kareem is just cool all around. Best way to describe him. I enjoyed talking with both of them. However, I know all of you are clamoring for “Bachelor” news as filming wrapped this past weekend. I address that, along with a couple other Bachelor Nation related things in the first 10 minutes of today’s podcast so check that out. I will continue to say what I’ve always said: you will get your spoilers when I have them. I’ve been told who Peter chose, but at this time of year, I get told a lot of things. All I’m doing is making sure and double checking what’s good info and what isn’t. At this point, I’d say I’m pretty close. Just need to hear from a few more sources and you’ll get your winner. Until then, just be patient. You will get your info like you do every season. In the meantime, Medinah and Kareem don’t have Twitter accounts that I could find, so if you want to follow them on IG, feel free at their accounts (Medinah: coffeebeandean & Kareem: kthomas1). Thanks to both of them for coming on, and don’t forget to tune in to episode #7 tonight at 10/9c on USA Network. It’s video message time. We all remember what happened last season when Kaci and John didn’t get messages from Evan and Kady respectively. Will someone not leave a message again? Tune in tonight to find out.

(SPOILERS) I begin by talking about where I’m at with spoiling Peter’s “Bachelor” season, Victoria stuff, and a story in Bachelor Nation that I expect to break fairly soon which I am choosing not to report. Then, Medinah Ali from “Temptation Island” joins me to talk about her journey on the island, her relationship with Rick, her podcast, and much, much more (11:49). Then another TI single, Kareem James, joins me to talk about what life was like for him on the island and his relationship with Esonica (41:36)
