It can be exhausting for viewers to keep up with “The Bachelor” and all of its adjacent franchise series. Fortunately, to discuss all things Bachelor Country, several former contestants have started their own podcasts.
Different media professionals and celebrities have also joined in the fun, in addition to former contestants getting their interesting podcasts to talk about the show.
Read on to listen to the best Bachelor podcasts, and there’s certainly plenty to listen to during the day leading up to the Jan. 4 premiere of the show.
Ex candidates’ podcasts
Bachelor Happy Hour”Bachelor Happy Hour”Bachelorette”Bachelorette” During the Black Lives Matter protests this summer, the hosts did not shy away from the controversial subject and discussed racism and how it intersects with the show itself instead.
For anyone watching the show, this podcast is certainly a must listen to. “The Viall Files”: This podcast, which is a blend of show recaps and talks on non-show subjects such as dating, religion and interviews with other celebrities, is hosted by three-time “Bachelor” contestant Nick Viall. Mouthing Off with Olivia Caridi”Mouthing Off with Olivia Caridi” She typically hosts people on a reality TV show who have gotten a “bad guy cut” allowing them a forum to justify their show choices and to encourage viewers to see the person as more than just their often skewed TV cut. Podcasts from those on the fringes of Bachelor Country.
“Here to Make Friends”: Emma Gray and Claire Fallon, editors of HuffPost, host this podcast that looks at The Bachelor through a feminist lens.
The two never hide from uncomfortable issues inside the show, such as claims of sexual assault and sexism.
As well as celebrity guest hosts including Allison Williams, they also invite former contestants for interviews. 2 Black Girls, 1 Rose: A Bachelor Podcast”2 Black Girls, 1 Rose: A Bachelor Podcast”
They’ve had guests like Rachel Lindsay, “Venmo John” and Bibiana Julian in the past.
Their podcast hook is, “Where two black *ss girls invade the whitest show on Earth….The Bachelor!” Justine and Natasha also have a Patreon for extra content that listeners can subscribe to. “Bachelor Party:” This podcast, which is definitely the most biting podcast of the lot, is hosted by Juliet Litman of The Ringer. Juliet never loses the chance to tell her listeners what she really thinks of the contestants, and she certainly has strong favorites (Ben Higgins and Tyler Cameron). Her viewpoint is that of a fan, but she is obviously related to the contestants on the show, which for her listeners is certainly understandable. “Reality Steve Podcast”: Love him or hate him, Steve Carbone – “Reality Steve” – is a regular on Bachelor Nation. His career consists of “spoiling” the show with tips from unknown sources inside, leading to an apparently precarious relationship with the show itself – he has been sued in the past by ABC. In long podcast series, Steve hosts former contestants, most of whom he has written about, perfect for the long drive to work.

With Brown, former contestant Derek Peth co-hosted the podcast. The number of podcasts devoted to the show is sure to increase as “The Bachelor” continues to rise as a cultural behemoth.
It is possible that former contestants will be added to the already wide list of existing podcasts.
But more content means more intrigue and fun – so Bachelor Nation keeps winning, essentially.
