Welcome to Episode 15 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation show. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide associate editor Liam Mathews dissect the premiere of Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette.
Topics discussed include the tight, zippy pace of the episode (very positive!); concerns about first impression rose recipient Luke P., who seems like the kind of guy to have some barely-controlled anger issues; first night one-and-done breakout stars Matt Donald and Joe the Box King, who were both positioned to be the next Grocery Store Joe but only one of whom actually will be; likable cuties Connor J. and Peter the Pilot; and some JUICY behind-the-scenes gossip about Nick Viall lookalike Luke S. (JK, it's not that juicy, but it's pretty funny).
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC. It's available to stream on Hulu.
