    A Recap of Hometown Dates, Bachelor in Paradise Update, and a Big Night Tonight


    Today is a big day for me. No, not because of the final four rose ceremony tonight. That’s whatever. I’m sure whoever gets eliminated will spoil it on their own by jumping on their social media immediately, kinda like last season’s “Bachelorette” final four where Dean was back on Instagram within hours of getting eliminated. So either the guy who gets eliminated tonight will out himself, or, I’ll find out anyway. That’s not what’s important today. What IS important is that tonight is something a month in the making. All across movie theaters in US tonight at 7:00, Fathom Events is re-showing “The Karate Kid,” which will then be followed by the first two episodes of the new YouTube Red series “Cobra Kai.” Do you realized how giddy 10 year old me is about tonight? Whoever would’ve thought we’d see the day that Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence would still have beef 34 years later and we’d get to see it. I bought my ticket to this a month ago and have basically been counting … Continue reading

    “Ex on the Beach” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 1 Recap


    Welcome to MTV’s Ex On the Beach, a social experiment the founders of television could never have expected to transpire, not even on the days they drank straight scotch until they saw only static. This program brings reality stars and “social media stars” – and if you’re not already sighing heavily, we can never be friends – into a gorgeous villa in Hawaii so they can be manipulated while cameras film every second of their inebriated time. Join me from the comfort of your sofa (where, hopefully, there’s nary an ex in sight) as we witness fitness models, a DJ, and former contestants from shows like Big Brother, The Bachelor, and Are You the One as they head to what they pretended to believe would be paradise until the producers revealed the real plot: that their exes would eventually wash upon the shores like debris and subsequently scatter the senses of every single person present.

    I suppose I’m entering into these proceedings in a rather cynical manner, but let’s call it like it is, yes? … Continue reading

    Podcast #74 – Interview with Former “Bachelor/ette” Producer Michael Carroll


    The name of this week’s podcast guest might not jump out at you, but you can bet this is certainly one of the more interesting ones you’ll hear. Michael Carroll is a former producer on the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” back in it’s early seasons and you may have read some of his interview in Amy Kaufman’s “Bachelor Nation” book. Once I read him, I knew I had to have him on at some point. We’ve all heard the stories, we all see some of the backlash that producers from this show get. I’m the first to call out production for certain tricks and tactics they use and these are all addressed with Michael. He’s very open and honest about his craft, what he does, how he does it, and has a lot of interesting insight into the business that maybe a lot of people still don’t understand. Really learned a lot from Michael in this conversation and I think it will open your eyes to a few things as well. Producers vs. editors is probably … Continue reading
