I have two questions about the new bachelor.
Was Clayton who you thought it might be based off of a filming location you heard? No. So good thing I didn’t report the location I heard.
Also, I may have just missed this but have they announced who will be hosting the Bachelor? I know they said Kaitlyn and Tayshia were returning for Michelle’s season but I’ve not heard who for the Bachelor.
Comment: No, they haven’t. But I’m assuming it’ll get out soon. I’ve been asking around and no one seems to know for sure. But we will soon enough.
Just curious, awhile back you mentioned on the podcast that there’s a story in bachelor nation that you’re aware of but you aren’t going to share it. You stated you’re surprised this story hasn’t gotten out yet. Is this still the case? Or has this story already came out.
Thanks for the answer!
Comment: Oh geez. I’m sure I said that, but there are so many, I don’t remember which one specifically I was referring to when I said that.
Thoughts on Tia Booth and what happens with her? I adore her and her humor and I’m curious how things play out. Did she recently insinuate that she has a boyfriend on Instagram stories?
Comment: Yes. Well, I never know what the term “boyfriend” means anymore when it comes to people in Bachelor Nation. But yes, I have heard Tia is dating/seeing/has a bf, but he’s not part of BN. He’s a Nashville guy.
I was just wondering if you’ve heard any rumblings on if Pieper and Brendan are still together? Can’t imagine that relationship surviving but just curious! Thanks Steve!
Comment: I mean, they’ve been seen the most in public since filming ended. I’ve posted a couple pics. But I haven’t checked in in a couple weeks, so maybe stuff has changed since these episodes have aired. Ask US Weekly. They have Pieper on speed dial. Anytime she wants something out there, they magically get an exclusive with her. So if anyone knows for sure, it’s them.
Thanks for always bringing great info and insight on all things Bachelor.
You’ve probably covered this before but can you explain how much the cast knows about who is going to be on Paradise or eventually show up later on the beach? You always have people saying “oh I’m looking for to so and so possibly being in paradise” but are they saying that because they know ahead of time the “full cast list” or are they just coincidentally mentioning someone that they’re genuinely interested in who happens to also be cast for paradise without them knowing?
Comment: For one, all these people (or almost all of them) are talking to each other beforehand, so they know who’s interviewed and who’s in the running. The other thing being when you go to interview for it, you tell production who you’d be interested in from other seasons. So production and the cast just kinda knows who’s pretty much coming on. They just don’t know when.
Long time reader, first time emailing. I’m a big fan of yours from the UK.
Do you know if they’ll be going back to the Bachelor mansion at some point?
Comment: Clayton’s season will start at the mansion from everything I’ve heard.
Been a long time reader. I love your take on this show and how reliable your spoilers are. Added bonus is your love for dogs! ? My question is around Andi Dorfman. I am not expecting specific dirt but is she really as single as she appears and she gives off a vibe that’s she’s better than the rest? Above the Bachelor Nation Alums?
Comment: I don’t follow Andi and don’t have the slightest clue what she’s been up to recently. Also have no idea on her relationship status.
Is Colton actually still doing a Netflix show or is it not happening?
Comment: I haven’t heard anything about since he came out on GMA back in April. So either this was a project that was being pitched at the time, or, Netflix dropped it. The fact it’s been 6 months since this was announced and we’ve heard nothing since makes me think this might not be happening anymore.
Just wondering about the Becca-Thomas-Aaron situation. The show made it seem like Becca’s top choice for the date would be Aaron but because he was on a date with someone else she chose Thomas. Do you think they purposefully set it up so Becca got her date card when Aaron was away hoping to stir up more drama or do you think Becca would have taken Thomas either way?
Comment: I’m sure they did. Then I was told that Becca said on her podcast she got into an argument with Aaron at the party, so that led her in the direction to start looking at someone else.
