After a months-long hiatus, "The Bachelor" franchise has returned, this time with all-American family man Ben "Unlovable" Higgins at its center. And on "Here To Make Friends," we talk about all of it -- for the right reasons.
In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, host Claire Fallon recaps Episode 5 of "The Bachelor," Season 20, with guest Erin Gloria Ryan, deputy editor at Vocativ. We'll discuss the unlikely overlaps between the Iowa caucuses and "The Bachelor" cocktail party, Ben's magnetic pull toward classroom settings, and Jubilee's untimely exit.
Don't worry about host Emma Gray; she's out of town this week at a conference, but she'll be back next week!
See who made the cut this week in the handy graphic (above), and check out the full recap of Episode 5 by listening to the podcast:
Do people love "The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette" and "Bachelor in Paradise," or do they love to hate these shows? 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. Podcast edited by Nick Offenberg.
