What I’ve been watching this week – May 20
Bienvenue and aloha to yet another season of The Bachelorette. We welcome in Hannah B as our 15th Bachelorette. After last week’s special, I found myself really looking forward to this new season. I thought Hannah’s first night as the lead was pretty solid. She had fun, but called out Scott when he needed to be called out. Of course that moment felt very produced, but not from Hannah’s end. I can’t see her faking anything for the cameras. I’m pretty excited about where this season is going to take us. After listening to a great interview with Chris Harrison where he calls this one of his favourite seasons ever, I’m even more pumped.

First of all, big thanks to the Paradise Hotel twitter account for reminding me to watch.
So I did get around to watching the first couple episodes. There is 3 episodes a week, which is QUITE the commitment. I didn’t watch the first iteration of Paradise Hotel. But from what I understand it is a pretty similar format to the original. It also has a pretty similar format to Love Island, which a lot of people have commented on.
It’s a good summer show, but it’s not the best thing I’ve ever watch. I wasn’t expecting world class television or anything, but there isn’t quite as much charm as Love Island. Maybe it’s because I love a British accent. The cast is fine. Like with Love Island, I think it’s going to take me a bit to get into it. I’m going to keep watching, but I don’t think I’ll be upset if I miss an episode.
the 38th season has come and gone. I can’t believe how long I’ve been watching Survivor. I can’t say this season was my favourite. I’d probably say it was in my bottom tier, if I had to make a ranking. I could never really get into the season, which is a shame because I really liked the cast. I have yet to watch the preview for season 39, but I’m hoping it’s a little more fun. Read the rest of my thoughts on this season of Survivor here.
