One brainy beauty with a thousand-watt smile. Thirty-one strong-jawed suitors. It’s the 13th season of “The Bachelorette,” featuring Dallas attorney Rachel Lindsay’s journey to love.
This week, Rachel takes some frontrunners to tape “Ellen,” rides horses into Beverly Hills boutiques with Anthony, and watches some men mud-wrestle for her entertainment along with her old “Bachelor” gal pals. On the podcast, Claire Fallon, Emma Gray, and guest Vella Lovell also discuss Demario’s brief return, Lee’s major bigotry problem, and how “The Bachelorette” is handling the race issue so far:
Do people love “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” or do they love to hate these shows? It’s unclear. But here at “Here to Make Friends,” we both love and love to hate them — and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail. Podcast edited by Nick Offenberg.
