Why I’m Excited for Matt James to be The Bachelor

Why I’m Excited for Matt James to be The Bachelor

Like Cats and Dogs

This 2017 Hallmark movie follows Laura and Spencer, two very different strangers, as they try to share a rental after a clerical error.

It was a cute and fun movie that ended exactly as you would expect. If this is your type of movie you will definitely like it. It’s a nice, easy watch.

I was invited to talk about the movie over on the Hallmarkies Podcast, so check that out here.

Vanderpump Rules

After what felt like a very dragged out, boring season of Vanderpump Rules, the last few episodes have been really good. It’s felt like very classic Vanderpump Rules. Maybe I have to give credit to Jax for completely losing it and returning to old Jax? Ugh, I never want to give him credit for anything.

I feel like the new cast members are finally being integrated well into the show, and I’m liking them quite a bit. Except Brett and Max.

Check out my rankings of everyone on Vanderpump Rules.

The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart

Am I…actually really enjoying this show?

Yes I am and I can’t believe it.

Honestly, I’m having a really great time watching it. The two hour episodes don’t feel too long. And I’m thankful there is only one episode per week. I think quite a few of the people on the show are talented musicians which makes it easier to watch.

Check out my podcast coverage of Listen to Your Heart here.

Reality of Love I got asked to be a guest on the Hallmarkies podcast to talk about the movie ‘Reality of Love’ which was originally released as ‘I Want to Marry Ryan Banks’ in 2004. I don’t watch many made for tv movies. Hell, I […]

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!

Check out The Bachelor RHAP-Up podcast here for all of our thoughts on the current season.

The Circle UK After watching The Circle US on Netflix and really digging it, I thought I should jump into the UK version. I started with season 2 because I was told it was the most similar to the US version. I am LOVING it. […]

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 with many baking shows.

The Circle

Sure, I started watching because everyone else was going to watch it. But now I can’t wait for the next set of episodes to drop.

In The Circle, a group of strangers, who don’t actually know what the other players in the game look or sound like, because they are all living separately and only communicate through The Circle. I was skeptical at first, but now I’m all in. Sure, a few things feel a little clunky and awkward but I think they’ll be able to work out the kinks.

Listen to me talk about the first two episodes of The Circle here.

The Bachelor

It’s back baby!!!

I’ve had a couple months to think about it, and while I was initially kind of disappointed that Peter was named The Bachelor, I am pretty sold on it now. I think he will be honest, emotional, and fun. Which is all I really want from a Bachelor. I also think the cast of women is pretty solid too. There doesn’t seem to be any obvious villains or weirdos – at least not yet.

I actually liked this premiere. It was daunting that it was 3 hours, but I liked that we got started on the first week during the premiere. It kept things moving nicely.
