Jun 18, 2019 • 75 min

“Figure It Out” | ‘The Bachelor’ S23 E6 Recap
Feb 12, 2019 • 75 min

“Move With The Cheese” | ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ S5 Week 2 Recap
Aug 15, 2018 • 51 min

“Tia Code” | ‘The Bachelorette’ S14 E8 Recap
Jul 17, 2018 • 67 min

“Kisses Used To Mean Something Around Here!” | ‘The Bachelor’ S22 E3 Recap
Jan 16, 2018 • 58 min

Jan 10, 2018 • 62 min

Dec 11, 2017 • 33 min

“Doug’s Bad Read” | ‘The Bachelorette’ S8 E7 Recap
Dec 6, 2017 • 37 min

Nov 21, 2017 • 45 min

“I’d Be Mad Too” | ‘The Bachelorette’ S8 E2 Recap
Nov 15, 2017 • 33 min
