    The Real Pod: The final pod for the final rose

    The Real Pod: The final pod for the final rose

    The Real Pod assembles one more time to dissect the final week of The Bachelorette NZ, with special thanks to Nando’s.


    We've reached the end of our love journey in more ways than one, as this season of The Bachelorette NZ coincides with end of The Real Pod in it's current form. Lesina chose nobody, Lily chose Richie and Alex, Duncan and Jane have a lot of questions. Why did AMOG wear those shoes on the beach? Why is Lesina's mum a crown prosecutor? And who on Earth is Chad?


    Stay tuned to the end for some virtual goodbyes, as well as 12 minutes of Duncan and Alex recapping After the Final Rose in the Uber home from the filming. It’s The Real Pod, and it's been real.

    The Real Pod: Our very first lockdown podcast

    The Real Pod: Our very first lockdown podcast

    The Real Pod assembles (virtually) to dissect the penultimate week of The Bachelorette NZ, except this time we are in a national lockdown. 


    The lads on The Bachelorette NZ knew all about what it was like to be in lockdown, so in a lot of ways we should have been prepared for this. Coming at you via our individual houses on day one of national lockdown, we have no choice to return to doing what we do best: recapping reality television.


    It was hometown week on The Bachelorette NZ, back when domestic travel was encouraged and hugging was a normal way of greeting people. Logan's Mum was incredible, AMOG's Dad spilled all and Jesse's brother seemed to be gunning for The Bachelor NZ in 2021. Join us for a little bit of normalcy in a weird, weird world.


    And remember: stay inside and watch telly.

    The Real Pod: Escaping into The Bachelorette NZ and Logan's scary notebook

    The Real Pod: Escaping into The Bachelorette NZ and Logan's scary notebook

    The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the seventh week of The Bachelorette NZ, with special thanks to Nando’s.


    The good news is that we are all back in the same country for the first time in a long time, the bad news is that it is definitely not because of The Right Reasons. In a snap decision, Jane left LAX for New Zealand 48 hours ago and recaps her journey home for us in these freaky times of Covid-19.


    It's a better time than ever to travel to our alternate reality in Argentina, where the boys are still pulling down pants and popping grapes willy-nilly. Mike and Michael decided they were done with Lesina's grilling, Logan had a revealing session with his notebook and AMOG has come completely loose at the seams.
    It's The Real Pod, and it's still real. For now.

    The Real Pod: Join us in the gratitude circle of The Bachelorette NZ

    The Real Pod: Join us in the gratitude circle of The Bachelorette NZ

    The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the sixth week of The Bachelorette NZ, with special thanks to Nando’s.


    In this trying times of global chaos and social distancing, we welcome you to join our digital gratitude circle and recap the last week on The Bachelorette NZ. These were happier times when the swimming was synchronised, the chicken nibbles were realistic looking and Michael's root vegetable was hanging out for all the world to see.


    AMOG has completely come undone, Jesse is permanently rarked and Liam is officially veto-ed. In real news, Duncan played Alex's Mum at Scrabble and got caned, Jane is in the thick of California Coronavirus chaos and Alex is wearing a wig. We also desperately have to talk about whatever the hell is going on with MAFS AU. It's The Real Pod, and it's real as hell.

    The Real Pod: The Bachelorette NZ moves to Big Dad's farm

    The Real Pod: The Bachelorette NZ moves to Big Dad's farm

    The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the fifth week of The Bachelorette NZ, with special thanks to Nando’s.


    The boys have escaped jail for the Argentinian countryside this week, complete with rabbit hunting and a whole lot of prickles. Steve tries to serenade his way to a kiss, Liam goes on a jean short journey and Mike finally lets down those handsome walls. Logan is writing a rom-com, Jesse is writing poetry and Michael is still trying to write the perfect cake recipe.


    On the pod, things are evolving too. Duncan has changed his mind (again) about Richie, Jane needs to go to hospitable with a chronic case of missing Tavita-itis and Alex has some more feelings about eggs. It's The Real Pod and it's about as real as it gets.

    The Real Pod: In which we deeply respect the culture of The Bachelorette NZ

    The Real Pod: In which we deeply respect the culture of The Bachelorette NZ

    The Real Pod reassembles to dissect the cultured fourth week of The Bachelorette NZ with special thanks to Nando’s.


    This week on The Bachelorette NZ, a burrito bust-up ends in anaphylaxis, Steve chows down on some one ply and the Buenos Aires hostel goes full Lord of the Flies. It's become abundantly clear that that the show is less about two women finding love, and more about a bunch of blokes slowly losing their mind over a talking bottle.


    Also Duncan makes a formal apology to Richie, Jane reveals her drop crotch truth and there is a fierce debate about visible farts vs poop burps. Oh, there's also a bit of a bombshell from Alex. It's The Real Pod and, today, it's real as hell.
