In Episode 8 of the Almost Famous podcast, Ben and I discuss cougar-ing. Does it work out when there’s a big age difference between a couple, especially when the girl is older than the guy? Dean is six years younger than Rachel and his youth is brought up a lot on The Bachelorette amongst the other guys. However, Rachel and Bryan have the same six year age difference but he’s older. What’s the difference? Is there a real reason beyond this double standard?
Rachel is headed to the men’s hometowns on Monday. Ben explains to me what really goes down on these day-long dates and how someone’s family can really affect the future of a relationship.
