    Ep. 155 The Bachelor: This Show is White and Stupid (Season 26, Week 3)

    Ep. 155 The Bachelor: This Show is White and Stupid (Season 26, Week 3)

    This week we are joined again by friend of the pod, Renise, of the Black Bachelor Babes!

    We are bringing back the tarot readings for every episode of Clayton’s season of The Bachelor. This week Megan asked the Final Rose Tarot cards what we can expect from this season of the Bachelor. Megan pulled the In your Head card, AKA the Eight of Mirrors. This card is all about building up insecurities in your head and playing the victim. We definitely see that play out in this episode… Hello, Shanae.

    We start the episode with the remaining drama from the last episode, including last week’s rose ceremony. We also get a trauma porn group date, a naked scavenger hunt one-on-one date with Sarah, and a Baywatch-themed group date. We also get another extreme amount of Shanae foolishness. Some may say too much. Who is some? Us. We say it’s too much.

    This week we say goodbye and highlight Ms. Asset, Tessa! We are really sad to see her go but knew Clayton wasn’t really her type anyways. Follow her Tessauce! We also say goodbye to Ency!

    Lastly, we all share our Crime and Rose of the episode!

    Ep. 154 True Crime: The Murders of Brendan Mess, Erik Hacker-Weissman, and Raphael “Rafi” Teken

    Ep. 154 True Crime: The Murders of Brendan Mess, Erik Hacker-Weissman, and Raphael “Rafi” Teken

    Last week’s episode of The Bachelor gave Megan MANY potential themes to explore in the true crime world, however, Megan decided to center her story around Ziwe, comedian, writer, and host of one of the week’s group dates. Ziwe is from Lawrence, Massachusetts, so Megan tells a story from nearby Waltham, Massachusetts.

    This story is a wild ride from start to finish. This really gruesome triple murder from September 11, 2011, really doesn’t have any kind of lead until April 2013. And where that lead leads us, is simply… confusing and maybe leads us into a bigger conspiracy? We still have so many questions about this story, tell us what you think! (Story starts at: 6:55)

    Ep. 152 Bach: Battle of the Blonde Ambition (Season 26, Week 2)

    Ep. 152 Bach: Battle of the Blonde Ambition (Season 26, Week 2)

    We are bringing back the tarot readings for every episode of Clayton’s season of The Bachelor. This week Megan asked the Final Rose Tarot cards what we can expect from this season of the Bachelor. Megan pulled the Here to Make Friends card, AKA the Three of Flutes. We thought this card was mocking us, but this card is all about surprising connections and bonding, which we definitely see.

    This season we are changing things up a little bit. We are hitting the highlights of the episode. We are highlighting the women, the dates, roses and kisses. We’re also giving our “Crime and Rose” episode.

    In this episode, we saw a birthday party group date hosted by Hilary Duff, a luxurious one-on-one date for Susie (Danielle can’t spell half of the thing they did), and an obstacle course group date hosted by writer and comedian Ziwe. We see the rise of two blonde villains and we hate it. Cassidy won’t help with the group project unless she gets paid, and Shanae, who gives herself a nickname we hate, outs another contestant’s disability and tries to embarrass her, but really, it’s just embarrassing for Shanae.

    BIPOC Highlight this week Danielle was very disappointed with the lack of diversity shown on the screen. We see the second group date rose go to Sarah, and Melina had some good commentary during the date, but we weren’t shown the connection between him and those lovely ladies. With that being said, we did enjoy seeing a black woman host the group date. Comedian and writer, Ziwerekoru "Ziwe" Fumudoh was very entertaining on the group date and taught us about some of the new trendy red flags in dating.
