Eulogizing The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart

Did I think I was going to watch Listen to Your Heart every single week? I mean, I probably was. Pandemic or not, I do love content. Did I think I was going to love Listen to Your Heart? Definitely not. Yes, I loved the […]

The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart So like, I was always probably going to watch this. But now I have nothing better to do than to watch LTYH. In an inexplicable move, The Bachelor created a show just for people that are looking for […]

Why I’m excited for Clare Crawley to be The Bachelorette

Why I’m excited for Clare Crawley to be The Bachelorette

ABC has announced their new Bachelorette – it’s 38-year-old Clare Crawley who we first met on Juan Pablo’s season of The Bachelor. We watched her search for love on The Bachelor, on 2 seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, and we saw her find it with Quebecois Benoit on Bachelor Winter Games.

That relationship didn’t last, but we were all happy for Clare after watching her journey throughout the franchise.

Here she is now as The Bachelorette.

I love this pick. I had been hearing rumours that she could be the one, and I wasn’t sure if I could believe it until it was officially announced. She made her appearance on Good Morning America to announce to the world that she was here looking for love.

Clare is 14 years older than our last Bachelorette, Hannah Brown. She’s lived a lot of life. She’s experienced a lot of things. She’s going to bring a maturity to the show that we haven’t seen in a while.

Clare knows what she wants and what she deserves. She is going to take this process seriously and won’t take any bullshit from the guys.

The reason why Hannah was such a successful Bachelorette was because she was open, honest, and vulnerable. Clare has all of those qualities in spades. We’ve never seen her hold back.

Everyone from Bachelor Nation seems to like her. I’ve seen people coming out saying how excited they are for her, I feel like that’s a good sign. Even her former fiance is excited for her!

I hope that they cast men who are at the same point in their life that she is. I’d be pretty disappointed if the cast was full of 22-year-old f-boys. I think Clare deserves a great crop of dudes!

I’m really excited that they went a little bit out of the box for this pick, and I think it will pay off. I can’t wait for this season to start!

Nailed It After watching all of the holiday episodes of Nailed It, I couldn’t stop and am now devouring the regular episodes of the show. It makes me laugh so hard. I love that no one takes it too seriously, which is absolutely the case […]

Love Island US I’ve been having a great time watching Love Island US. It has really surpassed any expectations I had for the show. Which were very few. I’m sorry! I was skeptical that CBS wouldn’t completely screw up a show that worked so well. […]

Taskmaster

I am so glad that my favourite show is back. In the 9th season of Taskmaster, 5 comedians/presenters/general brits on tv come together to complete tasks and then watch each other complete the tasks. Sounds not great in concept, but holy F is it funny. I genuinely laugh out loud at many points throughout the episode. The first episode of the new season was great. Of course it was. I don’t know the cast super well, but I am excited to see where it goes.

The Challenge

I’ve been really enjoying The Challenge this season, for the most part at least. I am super over Paulie and Cara’s storyline. The Brits have been great, and I’ve completely changed my mind about Big Brother contestants being on the show. They have been a lot of fun over the last few seasons. I chat more about this latest episode on the MTV Reality RHAP Up.

Top Chef Canada

Boy has this season been a drag. I just can’t get into the Canadian version of one of my favourite shows, which I hate to say. I’m hoping it’s just this season. Nearly all of the women went home, pretty well right off the bat. And I’m pretty sure the season started with less women than men, but I’m not fact-checking myself on that one. The challenges have been fine, and the guest judges have been great, but we spend almost no time with the guest judges. The regular judging panel seem to take this all too seriously. I’m going to finish out the season, but it’s not appointment viewing.

Drag Race Season 11

Yet another disappointment on the tv front. Season 11 has just not been incredibly compelling for me. The cast is good, but it’s like the editors haven’t done a great job at conveying the story. Some of the eliminations seem completely out of whack, and I don’t totally find myself rooting for anyone in particular

The Bachelorette

Okay, so this new season hasn’t started yet, but it’s about to! You can catch our draft podcast on the newest cast here.
