Welcome to Episode 6 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation podcast in which former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide associate editor Liam Mathews break down Episode 5 of Colton Underwood's season.
This week, Jacqueline and Liam talk about one of the show's biggest problems: the way that every conflict, whether emotional or interpersonal, gets presented the exact same way every season. Not only have we seen all these dates before, we've also seen Elyse's breakup and Onyeka and Nicole's fight before. The show traffics in broad types with no nuance, and Jacqueline is tired of it. They also talk about their first kisses, solve the mystery of Kirpa's chin bandage and play a Super Bowl-inspired game of Bachelor Sports Trivia.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC. It's available to stream on Hulu.
