THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 10, EPISODE 5

Coachella seems like my biggest nightmare. You can’t escape from crowds of people glued to their phones. Everyone is taking overly posed fashion photos. Some people are on drugs. I don’t know 90% of the music blaring. Despite my personal feelings of the country’s most scene-y music festival, it’s a Bachelor hotspot. Bri and Tracy from Colton’s season call into episode 5 (season 10) podcast to paint the picture of what it’s like to be a Bachelor alum at Coachella. Bri explains that it’s not all fun and what you see on Instagram is a filtered (pun intended) version of the event. Tracy and I chat about the age limit on crop tops and *NSYNC’s performance with Ariana Grande. Was that alone incredible enough that I should have made the trip to Coachella?

Ben and I discuss what a great wedding consists of in our opinion. For him, it’s all about the party. I like to focus on the romance. Dean Unglert, one of Jared’s groomsmen, dials into the podcast and gets quizzed on our upcoming wedding and groomsmen traditions. Is he ready to fill this role for the first time? You’ve got to listen below to see how Dean scored.

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 10, EPISODE 4

Ben was being all fancy at the Final Four so I hosted episode 4 (season 10) all by my lonesome on the Napa Valley Wine Train. Ok, I wasn’t that lonely…I actually had 5 guests…Blake, Derek Peth, Venmo John, Vanessa, and Wells all have segments on this podcast episode. I grill Blake about a potential relationship with Hannah G in Paradise because Bachelor Nation is shipping this HARD. I find out whether or not Derek still speaks to his ex-fiancee Taylor Nolan. Venmo John reveals why he won’t be going back to Paradise this year even though he was such a hot commodity last year. Vanessa and I debate the appropriateness of pooping in front of a significant other. Wells and I chat about the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise season which will be produced without it’s mastermind, Elan Gale, behind the camera. Plus, will Wells return as the resident bartender? Listen to the podcast below to find out.

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 10, EPISODE 3

Things aren’t typical this week. As an April Fools prank of sorts, the iHeart podcast shuffled around hosts. Jared and I took over Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin’s Whine Down podcast. Normally, they talk about their marriage issues and marriage successes on their podcast. In our episode, Jared and I discuss the not so Instagramable conflicts we have. Jared complains about my rigid inflexible AKA my way or the highway. We discuss how in order to prevent this he needs to be more firm about his wishes and more assertive in decision making when it means something to him. Marriage coach Cherie Healey helps us figure out what to do about Jared’s lack of comfortability in Los Angeles, a city we need to live in for the next few years. She also tries to help us keep the romance as passionate as it was a year ago. Plus! Healey gives me advice on how to deal with Jared’s deep, secretive emotions.

Wells Adams and Jana Kramer took over for Ben and me on The Almost Famous Podcast episode 3 (season 10). They had Demi Burnett on to talk about her portyal on The Bachelor and her future on Paradise.

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 10, EPISODE 2

JOEY FATONE IS ON THE PODCAST!!! It’s the biggest deal for me. We talk about his former choreographer, Wade Robson, and his relationship with Michael Jason, Joey’s new podcast, his success of The Masked Singer, and if we are any closer to an *NSYNC reunion.

Tayisha calls into episode 2 (season 10) to talk about the time she saw Ben in person before she was even casted for The Bachelor. Wills calls in after Tayisha and reveals who he hopes to meet in Paradise if he’s casted in this upcoming season. *Hint* She’s a little under the radar, but definitely played a role during Colton’s season.

Ben and I speculate more about Hannah B’s guys. We read emails from fans saying who expressed we were too mean about the guys photos during last week’s episode.

THE ALMOST FAMOUS PODCAST: SEASON 10, EPISODE 1

Unlike any other season, they released the photos of Hannah B.’s guys before filming even started. We know it’s not about looks, but a lot of these guys look like average Joes, which is not what people expect form The Bachelorette cast. They got slammed on social media. Ben and I go through the whole lot of them in episode 1 (season 10) and give short first impressions of each of them. Like Joseph looks like he comes up to you at a bar and doesn’t leave you alone and doesn’t take a hint.

Plus! Rachel Lindsay says 23 is too young to be The Bachelorette…Ben and I give our opinions. Have Colton and Cassie being too mushy gushy and lovey, dovey on social media this week? Ben and I give our thoughts on the “breakfast tweet.”
