'Bachelor In Paradise' Season 2, Episode 1 & 2: Welcome To Hell -- And A Beach

All the tears -- and all the crabs.

It's not "Almost Paradise" anymore -- "Bachelor in Paradise" has finally arrived, and in abundance. The first week's episodes, three hours in total, offered all the laughter, tears, making out and backstabbing we could possibly hope for.

In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon, Culture Writer, and Emma Gray, Senior Women's Editor, recap episodes 1 and 2 of "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 2. We'll discuss paradise's apparent crab infestation, all the Ashley I. tears, the cult of Jared and the definition of "old lady." 

Plus, Maxwell Strachan, "Bachelor" fan and HuffPost Senior Entertainment and Sports Editor, joins to give us his "Bachelor in Paradise" premiere commentary:

Do people love "The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette" and "Bachelor in Paradise," or do they love to hate it? It's unclear. But here at "Here To Make Friends," we both love and love to hate them -- and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail.
