Podcast #191 – Interview with Former Bachelor Casting Producer Jazzy Collins, My Thoughts on the Nick Podcast, & Clare’s Guys

Well, it’s certainly been an interesting 48 hours since my appearance on Nick Viall’s podcast dropped. You’ll get my thoughts on that in the first 10 minutes of today’s podcast, followed by early thoughts on the release of Clare’s men yesterday by ABC. It’s like a small army of men, even though we know not all of them are making it to the final cast. Then Jazzy Collins, former Bachelor casting producer, joins me to break down her experience working on the show, and you gotta hear what she has to say. Certainly when Jazzy posted on Instagram a month ago calling out the franchise for their lack of diversity in front of AND behind the camera, she did it to try and get a message across. We cover all of that today and then some during our discussion. I appreciate Jazzy’s honesty about the franchise and why she felt the need to speak out. We need more people like Jazzy in this world. As always, if you’d like to reply to the interview, please feel free to leave a comment on any platform. Jazzy didn’t have a Twitter account that I could find. Enjoy…

I begin by giving my thoughts on going on Nick’s podcast this past Tuesday, followed by the reaction on Clare’s guys that were released yesterday (11:33). Then Jazzy joins me to talk about her 5 seasons working as a casting producer on the Bachelor franchise, the hardships she endured, the lack of diversity not only on the show but behind the scenes, what made her speak out a month ago on Instagram, has it hurt her in the industry, and much more (21:12).

    Steve, I know that you like the podcasts, but I DO wish you would also put in writing any information, such as your thoughts on Clare’s men in the posts as well. I don’t have time to listen to a podcast, I prefer the written form. Please consider going back to actually writing the news that you get. Thanks…

    TM, agree 100%. Don’t have time to listen to this. Will just have to go to the site of one of the many people RS says steal his stuff to read about it there.

    I’m with both of you! Steve’s had it pretty easy the last four months with not a lot going on in the Bachelor world with the pandemic. So, now that things are opening up, I’m craving some written recaps or breakdowns. The podcasts are too long and contain too much fluff.
