Episode 6 (Season 8) is probably the most serious episode we’ve recorded since starting the podcast in May 2017. Ashley Spivey, the outspoken political Bachelor alum from Brad Womack’s season, reveals just why she was so quick to accuse Ben of privilege on Twitter last week. In an emotional conversation, Ashley speaks about being raped in college. She discusses the importance of speaking out and just how scary it is to. Ashley also explains to us how she became a loud, political voice in Bachelor Nation so many years after appearing on TV.

Tanner Tolbert changes the mood when he comes on and discusses being the officiant at Jared and my wedding in August. Click below to find out why Ben and some fans are mad about this…

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 8, EPISODE 5

I was Puerto Rico with Jared, Jade, Tanner, and Emmy while this episode was being taped so Krystal Nielson filled in for me on Episode 5 (Season 8). She talks about starting out as a franchise villain and leaving an engaged woman. Vanessa Grimaldi is in-studio and reveals what she thinks would have happened between she and Ben if she were on the Bachelor Winter Games. It was speculated early on that she was supposed to be part of the cast. Following this, Krystal’s friend Chelsea Roy joins in the episode and explains just why the girls of Arie’s season felt a real connection to the former Bachelor. The podcast wraps up with Ben recapping his Twitter argument with Ashley Spivey of Ben Womack’s season. She accused him of having a closed off way of seeing the world.

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 8, EPISODE 4

We saw Jordan Kimball go from an annoying, self-obsessed Zoolander during Becca’s season to a lovable, sympathetic, hilarious character on Bachelor in Paradise. Much of this personality change came from him falling in love at first sight with Jenna Copper, a ditzy-seeming Jessica Rabbit come to life. From the moment Jordan laid eyes on her, we were rooting for this couple. The day the Bachelor in Paradise finale aired, Reality Steve broke news that Jenna had been romantically texting another man while engaged to Jordan. He had the text messages and correspondence with “the other man” to prove it. Jenna didn’t deny anything until it was far too late and Jordan dumped her.

It’s a saga with more information coming out every week. This week Jenna’s lawyers sent Jordan a letter asking him to make a public apology to Jenna or there would be further legal action taken towards him. We have Jordan on episode 4 (season 8) of the Almost Famous podcast telling the whole story from his first hand account. Is he afraid of being sued? What kind of relationship does he think Jenna actually had with the “other man?” Were there other red flags around Jenna before this bombshell came out? Find out the answers to these questions in the episode below.

THE I DON’T GET IT PODCAST: EPISODE 95

Episode 95: I Object! – I haven’t been to a wedding in which the officiant announces, “Speak now or forever hold you peace.” Maybe it seems archaic or maybe people don’t want haters interrupting. Anyhow, we’ve always been curious if anyone actually uses that moment to make a grand gesture of love or hate. In this episode of the I Don’t Get It podcast, we hear stories of people who have actually attended weddings that have been interrupted. In one of the stories shared, a college love interrupted claiming to be in love with the bride. Another caller tells the tale of a bridesmaid whom at the ceremony called out the groom for cheating. Our third story comes from a feisty lady from NYC shits on her cousin for leaving a girl at the altar…three freaking times…
