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're ready to talk about all of it -- for the right reasons.

In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon and Emma Gray recap the premiere of "The Bachelor," Season 20. We'll discuss Ben's clear distaste for brunettes (and redheads), why "normal" doesn't necessarily help you on "The Bachelor,' the gross sexualization of twins Emily and Haley (they are ACTUALLY two separate humans) and Lace's quick, wine-fueled downward spiral.

We'll also give our top picks for this season's "villain" and who we think stands a chance of getting Ben's final rose.

Plus, we're joined by Sam Usher and Max Godnick of the Bachelor Dudes, for their Male Insights (TM).

 Keep track of who made the cut this week in the handy graphic above, and check out the full premiere podcast below!



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.
