A snarky but affectionate dissection of dating reality shows — and what they say about all of us. Hosted by Emma Gray and Claire Fallon, who created the popular podcast Here To Make Friends, Love To See It is a weekly recap podcast about The Bachelor franchise and beyond. We laugh, we cry, we break down every episode in obsessive detail, and we unpack all the weird messages pop culture sends us about love. Join us on this journey
374 Episodes
This week we’re joined by former Bachelor Clayton Echard to talk about his new book '180 Degrees: On Mental Health, Mindfulness, and Unlocking Self-Belief'. We discuss everything from navigating fantasy suites to maintaining your mental health after the show. Plus, we get to hear more about Clayton’s post-Bachelor life and just where Clayton stands with his exes Susie Evans and Rachel Recchia.
Thanks a lot, Sean Lowe! This week, Zachary Shacklecross heads to Thailand for fantasy suites, announces many times that he will not have sex during his overnight dates, promptly has sex during an overnight date, and then tells… everyone about it. To help us digest it all is Bachelor legend and cohost of the A Little Help for Our Friends podcast, Jacqueline Trumbull! 
Zach’s season is almost over, and, as is tradition, the most important and Paradise-hungry women from this season have gathered together to hash out all the drama. Plus, bloopers, behind the scenes moments, and the announcement of next season’s Bachelorette!

'Bachelor' S27e08 Hometowns


Zach has fallen in love across Europe and the Bahamas, and now the Bachelor is headed back stateside for the all-important hometowns. He’ll be sampling local delicacies, from maple syrup to cow tongue, and trying to convince four moderately protective families that it’s fine that he’s still dating three other women.
The iconic Hannah Brown joins us this week to reflect on her time as a reality TV star. We cover everything from her mysterious nomination for ‘The Bachelor’ to her most recent appearance on ‘Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test’ and everything else in between, including the aftermath of one of the most memorable seasons of ‘The Bachelorette’ so far.
Zach knows everyone’s favorite colors and that means it’s time to dive into deeper topics, like how many bathhouse dates can you fit into one episode. This week The Bachelor is in Budapest and here to break it all down with us is Hannah Orenstein, author and Deputy Lifestyle Editor at Bustle.
We’re back one more time to cover the final batch of episodes of the Netflix reality dating crossover, Perfect Match. We’ll find out who makes it to the end, who goes home alone, and which couple is dubbed the perfect match!

'Bachelor' S27e06


This week we’re making up for lost time after The Bachelor had a super-tiny, no-big-deal Covid outbreak. After some time apart, the women are ready for their dates with Zach complete with nudism, witchcraft, and traditional Baltic sports.
We’re back for another round of Perfect Match! This week we get our first queer pairing, the collapse of seemingly strong relationships, and opinions on whether it’s cute or cringe to share a toothbrush. Meanwhile, we’re just hoping for a man good enough for our fave, Ines…
It’s time for every contestant to show off their British accent as we travel to London for a shopping spree date, Zachless pub crawl, and our first ever virtual rose ceremony. To help us spill the tea is Kelsey McKinney, co-founder of Defector Media and host of Normal Gossip!
This week we’re getting into Netflix’s all-star reality dating crossover show, Perfect Match! What happens when contestants from shows like Too Hot To Handle, Love Is Blind, and The Circle all try to date each other? We’re not sure, but we’re about to find out!
We’re visited by THE Bachelor Zach Shallcross who stopped by to give us a candid look at the season so far. We’ll get into navigating fan responses, handling drama, his fantasy suite with Rachel Recchia, and whether or not he found love this season!
This week we’re going international as we follow one self-identified Bahama papa lookin’ for his Bahama mama. Joining us is our good friend Vella Lovell from ABC’s upcoming sitcom, Animal Control! Content Warning: This episode covers a discussion about domestic violence. Warning is given in the episode prior to the discussion. National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1.800.799.3224
Nothing says romance like a concussion. It’s time for Bachelor Bowl V, a night at the museum, and a couple of early departures. Joining us for the first time is Jackie Maroney and Stephanie Parker, co-hosts of the She’s All Bach Podcast!
The Bachelor reminds us to separate the men from the boys. And Zach Shallcross… is a MAN. Or so we are told, repeatedly. Joining us to recap this week is longtime friend of the pod and star of the instantly iconic horror movie “M3GAN,” the great Allison Williams!

On this special bonus episode, we’re diving into the all-singles season of ‘The Circle,’ Netflix’s social competition show. We don’t usually cover ‘The Circle,’ but this season they introduced a new twist: All players would have to come in as singles.

Obsessed with this show!! I love watching reality TV through a race informed, critical viewpoint. This show delves into the sociological implications of the Bachelor franchise and it's fascinating. Been listening for four years and won't stop anytime soon!

Taking yourselves way too seriously! I totally agree about the need for diversity etc but holy cow. Say what needs to be said then MOVE ON. When I want that kind of commentary I'll go to places like NPR. I come to The Bachelor for brainless fun.

I think you need to change the name of your show. I am looking for recaps ..not feminist I the only one?

The first half of this interview was great! While it was cool to hear from her, the portion with LeNease could've been way shorter.

I agree with some of the other more recent posts. I know you might have to review these shows for you career but it seems lately you watch more for all the ways to point out your platforms than for the entertainment. and there doesnt seem to be any enjoyment. sometimes it is ok to allow a show to be for heterosexual dating. especially since it seems to be pointing out just how off track it has become. maybe some good comes from these shows. and if even some people learn communication dos and don'ts from watching its could be slightly helpful. also, its ok for a heterosexual man or woman to want to find a realtionship and even marriage with another heterosexual. I believe that you both, as well as some of the people you have on your show, are in committed relationships. as a woman we should be free to make choices even if that is choosing to stay home with their children if it is an option and shouldnt be seen as less than.

I get what yall are trying to do, but yall take it too far sometimes. Saying someone's hair is great, who HAS AMAZING HAIR, isnt racist. Not every dang word that comes out of someone's mouth is racist. Chill on the racism, feminism before you scew too far, then lose the goodness of what you are trying to do

OMG, please stop saying "like". You can't be taken seriously if you use that word in every sentence.
