THE BACHELORETTE - "Episode 1105" - After the rose ceremony, the remaining men travel to San Antonio. Kaitlyn surprises one bachelor with a day of fun and fancy footwork. The couple spends the day with a professional dance coach, who teaches them the Texas two-step for a competition that night before a raucous audience and judges. Later, a cinematic sunset is the backdrop for the two to get closer. The man stuns Kaitlyn with a heartbreaking story about a past relationship gone wrong. Will that affect whether he gets a rose? - on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, JUNE 15 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Felicia Graham) KAITLYN BRISTOWE

It's 2015. By now, reality TV is a young adult, but it hasn't grown out of "The Bachelor" franchise. Despite its bizarre dating rituals, low success rate, and questionable racial and gender politics, the stable of shows is, if anything, more popular than ever. Do people love "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," 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.

In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon, Culture Writer, and Emma Gray, Senior Women's Editor, recap the tenth episode of "The Bachelorette," Season 11. We'll discuss Sean and Nick's showdown, Kaitlyn's meet and greet with the families, and Ben H.'s send-off -- and inevitable "Bachelor" campaign.

David Flumenbaum, Managing Editor of HuffPost Live, joins to give his insights.
