    Welcome to Episode 46 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide Reviews & Recommendations Editor Liam Mathews recap the finale of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart.
    They're joined by LTYH winners Chris Watson and Bri Stauss to talk about that very special night in February, what their relationship and lives have been like in quarantine, and their self-titled debut album Chris and Bri, which is now available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your tunes. They wrote the album's original songs and recorded it during quarantine. They aren't engaged, but they're still together, and making beautiful music.

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 5 Recap

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 5 Recap

    Welcome to Episode 46 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide Reviews & Recommendations Editor Liam Mathews recap Episode 5 of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart.
    The big question on Liam's mind is if our beautiful contestants got to hook up on their fancy tour buses. Jacqueline doesn't think they did. Other topics of discussion include Rudi and Matt's very compelling arc this episode, the musical legacy of Shaggy, what seems off about Trevor, and Natascha and Ryan's sad but understandable elimination. It was a disappointing outcome from a disappointing performance, but what are you gonna do?

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 4 Recap

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 4 Recap

    Welcome to Episode 45 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide Reviews & Recommendations Editor Liam Mathews recap Episode 4 of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart.
    Topics discussed include Julia and Sheridan's breakup, Brandon and Savannah's breakup, Natascha's charming savagery and absolutely brilliant gameplay, who the hosts would like to duet with and what song they would sing, and much more. Fellas, never condescendingly call a woman "sweetie" like Brandon did. It'll make her feel annoyed and angry and make you look like a big jerk. Just don't do it.
    Here's the song by Danny that Jacqueline mentions:

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 3 Recap ft. Janie Korn

    Welcome to Episode 44 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide Reviews & Recommendations Editor Liam Mathews are joined by artist Janie Korn to recap Episode 3 of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart.
    Topics discussed include the strangeness of Listen to Your Heart's new rose ceremony format, who sounded good singing together (Rudi and Matt) and who didn't (Trevor and Jamie), Kesha's fingernail jewelry and how she does certain necessary tasks with a chain dangling off her hand, the compelling clarity with which Julia was wrong in her crusade against "fake" Savannah and Brandon, and Danny's shockingly popular and surely lucrative career as a musical impressionist on YouTube.

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 2 Recap ft. Jenna Cooper

    'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart' Episode 2 Recap ft. Jenna Cooper

    Welcome to Episode 43 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. Former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide Reviews & Recommendations Editor Liam Mathews recap the Episode 2 of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart. This week they're joined by Jacqueline's friend and cast mate Jenna Cooper, who last week was vindicated from false reports of infidelity that ended her relationship with Jordan Kimball in 2018.
    Jenna talks in even more depth than she did on Reality Steve's podcast about how bizarre the trolling that destroyed her reputation was, and what she knows about the people behind it. She has an idea for a movie based on her experience, because the story took so many all the twists and turns -- and it has a happy ending, because she's cleared her name and can move on with her life, just in time for her baby (she's due in five weeks).
    Other topics include Jacqueline's role in helping Jenna, how Jenna still hasn't heard from her ex Jordan, who turned on her when she needed his support the most, and her remarkably positive attitude about the whole ordeal.
    Oh, and they talk about Episode 2 of Listen to Your Heart, too.

Perfect Blend of Bachelor Nation and Fan

Since discovering this podcast loving it more and more! I love the balance with a bachelor alum and a cohost who hasn’t been on the show. I think they have good chemistry together and often approach recaps similarly with some tidbits from the real world or from Jaq’s experience with the show. Some of my favorite bachelor recaps come from fans and some come from bachelor nation people, this provide some of the best of both!

Funny and Intellectual

I really really like this lighthearted podcast about Bachelor shows. I‘m not even a super fan of the bachelor show but sometimes after an episode I just want to talk about it with someone! And since literally no one else in my life watches the show, Liam and Jacqueline discussing the episodes, making jokes, and pulling in life truths is perfect! Thanks guys!!
