There's never been a better time to be a "Bachelor" fan -- and we would know.
Ben Higgins' turn as the Bachelor premieres on Jan. 4, a couple potential "Bachelor" weddings hover in the offing (we're looking at you, Jade/Tanner and Kaitlyn/Shawn), and the franchise's golden couple, Sean Lowe and and Catherine Giudici, are back on TV every week starring in WE tv's "Marriage Bootcamp."
And all that means one more thing: HuffPost's own reality TV podcast "Here to Make Friends" is officially back from hiatus.
Sean and Catherine came into the studio to open up about "Marriage Bootcamp," their relationship with Bachelor Ben, whom Catherine described jokingly as a "brunette Sean," and what it's like being reality TV royalty.
Spoiler alert: The clearly glowing couple admit they made it through "Marriage Bootcamp," traditionally a show geared toward intensive marital counseling for troubled couples, with their happy marriage intact. Good news considering they're expecting their first child.
Sean and Catherine also hinted that they may know whether Ben Higgins will find love on his season of "The Bachelor," which has already completed filming -- and it sounds like things are looking good for the fan favorite. "I think he will find someone, much like Catherine, someone who doesn't care to be in the spotlight, someone who maybe doesn't show up until midway through the season," said Sean.
Hmmm ... is that a hint? We can't wait to find out.
Listen to the full interview:
Do people love "The Bachelor," or do they love to hate it? 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.
