Welcome to A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, a The Bachelor recap show from TV Guide. I'm your host Liam Mathews, TV Guide associate editor and Bachelor...superfan is a strong word, but I'm endlessly fascinated by the show and the people on it. Joining me is my co-host Jacqueline Trumbull, best known for self-eliminating on Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor in order to focus on her career, as well as getting sent home from Bachelor in Paradise on her birthday. Together we'll take a deep-dive into Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor. We hope you'll join us.

In the first episode, we discuss what we're looking forward to about Colton's season, which may be more of a journey of self-discovery than The Bachelor usually is; break down the bios for Colton's girls, including a theory about why so many of them are from Dallas; play "Is This Bachelor Job Title Real or Fake?"; catch up on what Jacqueline has been up to since Bachelor in Paradise and talk about one thing she regrets about her time with Jordan Mauger; and try to get to the bottom of what's going on with executive producer Elan Gale's exit from the show.
