'The Bachelorette' Season 11 Finale: Kaitlyn Bristowe Chooses Shawn Booth, Finds (Reality TV) Love

And Nick is left broken-hearted... again.

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 finale of "The Bachelorette," Season 11. We'll discuss Nick's rejection, Shawn's proposal and the awkward couples therapy that was "After The Final Rose." 


Plus, Sam Usher and Sammy Smith, also known as two-thirds of The Bachelor Dudes, join to give us their "Bachelorette" finale commentary.
