Oh, you haven't heard of International Date Line? It's only the hot new romantic television property created by Rachel and Griffin, two of Hollywood's most in-demand pitchmasters. Join them as they develop this show in this special episode of Rose Buddies!
View episode
For today's Roze Buddiez, we watched a couple episodes of Married at First Sight, and learned all about science, and data, and love, and responsibility. Everything in this show is so scientific, and so very, deeply responsible.

As we begin our journey away from the Bachelor franchise, we make a quick pit stop at Love Connection, which is a pretty inaccurate name for a show in which strangers take turns hating each other as hard as they possibly can.

Rachel's season of The Bachelorette came to a close earlier this week in an infuriating three-hour finale. Join us as we discuss the heartbreak and frustration of that conclusion, and hear ALL ABOUT the exciting new programs debuting THIS FALL on ABC!!!!!!!!!

We super didn't want to recap The Men Tell All, so instead, we are subjecting you to this: An hour-long discussion about all the mostly awful baby television we've watched this year. Enjoy?

We decided to go with this episode title because it's the literal only premise of the two-hour-long episode of primetime television we watched earlier this week. Also: The remaining suitors meet the family, and begin their journey to the Fantasy Suite.

Join us for a whistle-stop tour of America as we follow Rachel's journey to meet her four suitors' families! They went ... mostly ... okay, with one pretty exploitative exception.

We're getting down to the end of Rachel's tenure as Bachelorette, and -- you guessed it -- we're right back in that pre-hometowns slump. Join us as we dive into all the hot dates from this week, and as we discuss the SHOCKING eliminations as we get down to the final four.

There was no new episode of The Bachelorette this week, but we wanted to record SOMETHING, and this is the result of that desire. We're basically just talking about our favorite stuff in the least Goopy way we can muster.
View episode
Fair warning: This is a pretty tough episode to listen to, and it was a pretty tough episode to record. We're covering everything that went down during the suspension of Bachelor in Paradise, and also recapping a super problematic episode of The Bachelorette. There's a lot of rotten stuff happening right now that we're trying to sort out; we ask for some patience as we figure out what comes next.

This week's episode of The Bachelorette featured a lot of fun dates and a lot of super-not-fun horseshit back at the mansion. Not literal horse shit, mind you -- we all know this franchise is too afraid to actually deliver on THOSE goods.
View episode
This week's episode had it all: The blossoming of new love, an adorable dog attending a dog party, a marriage-themed obstacle course, and, of course, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It just methodically checks off all the elements required for a good episode of television.

The new season of Bachelorette has begun! In today's episode, we discuss Rachel's fateful meeting with 31 eligible bachelors, a few of whom are just absolute bridge trolls.

We did it. We beat it. We finished watching the final four episodes of Bachelor Pad Season Two in a single week, a feat that we wouldn't recommend trying to recreate at home. See you next week for the Bachelorette premiere!
View episode
We're halfway through watching this season of Bachelor Pad, and boy howdy, do we feel guilty about watching any of it. It was like we were really thirsty, dying in a desert of bad television, and now we're quenching ourselves on straight-up toilet water.
View episode
After talking about it constantly during the span of this podcast, we're FINALLY discussing Bachelor Pad, the short-lived offshoot of the franchise we know and ... tolerate. Specifically, the second season of Bachelor Pad, which pops off very hard in the premiere and never really stops.
View episode
The mid-2000s were a challenging time for all of us, particularly those who were enrolled in reality television programs like Dating in the Dark. This is a show in which strangers are trapped together in a cave, and then tasked with smooching their way out. Join us for another week of erudite discussion on this next-level skeleton-evacuating experience.
View episode
Holy shit, what a trash fire. We're sorry we made anyone watch this. Because, like, DAMN. Every minute of this thing was worst than the previous minute, and this bad boy started out with a pretty rough first minute, so. WOOF.

This week, we're hungrily tearing into the new Ellen DeGeneres/Drew Barrymore collabo First Dates, in which a bunch of folks go on First Dates with varying degrees of success. It's a breath of fresh air, y'all.
View episode
We're fresh off the MaxFunDrive, and ... well, okay, "fresh" maybe isn't the right word. We are shambling husks of our former selves, full stop. But that's not going to stop us from finishing up our recap of the very first season of The Bachelorette!
View episode
Happy week two of the MaxFunDrive! We hope you'll think about supporting our show if you've got the means! Either way, we're gonna recap the first season of The Bachelorette for you so, so right.
View episode
Happy MaxFunDrive, everybody! It's our first year on the network, and we're so excited to take part in this two-week celebration of ... well, us, I guess? And you! It's a love story, in a manner of speaking. Also, we're recapping the first eight episodes of Terrace House: Aloha State!
View episode
It's finale time! Well, yesterday was finale time, technically speaking. Right now it's recap time! Who did Nick choose to propose to in his season's final hours? I mean, you know, of course, but let's all pretend like it's a big surprise, okay?
View episode
Boy howdy, our bodies are simply no longer capable of consuming three hours of this television show in one sitting. Like, our nervous system violently rejects exposure to that much unfiltered Bachelor. Still, we weathered the storm to bring you this sleepy, penultimate episode of Nick's season!
View episode
Somehow, SOMEHOW, we created a podcast episode that is just as long as the hour-long episode of television that we're recapping. Which like, at this point, I don't even know if you can call that a recap, really. I think this might actually be a remake.
View episode
WHAT A GOOD EPISODE OF THE BACHELOR!!! We were very excited to talk about the good, good families that these women have, and how Nick is going to systematically disappoint them as we reach this season's final stretch. Join us, won't you?
View episode
It's Go-Homes week on the Bachelor as Nick narrows down the roster to this season's Final Four. Which, of course, means this episode was kind of lame -- BUT -- we got a big surprise announcement in the form of confirmation of the next Bachelorette! Join us as we just freak the hell out about it.
View episode
We don't know where to even begin talking about this episode. It was seriously the most bizarre two hours of programming this franchise has ever put together, complete with inscrutable plot twists and 180-degree tonal shifts that changed the course of the season with virtually no explanation. It's a wild, wild ride, and we're gonna guide you through it.
View episode
There's dark clouds on the horizon, but we're not focused on those -- instead, we're keeping our eyes on the delightful moments of yesterday's episode of The Bachelor. Namely, when a bunch of women were INSPIRITED BY A SPECTRAL CHILD.
View episode
HEEEEYYYYYYYYY DO YOU ALL LIKE CORRRRRRRRNNNNN?!?!?! This is a Corn-heavy episode, because the Bachelor has become a television show that's exclusively about Corn, and her wayward journey to find love.
View episode
Did we all communally experience last night's episode of The Bachelor in a group fever dream? Did we really witness a Backstreet Boys dance-off, a floating post-yartz smooch and a bouncy castle hook-up? IS THIS THE MATRIX? ARE WE IN THE MATRIX?
View episode
Where to begin? This episode of The Bachelor was an absolute barn burner -- we had competition, heartbreak, and more cringeworthy interactions than we ever dreamed one two-hour television episode could contain. Hold onto your butts, and also someone else's butt, because that's the order of the day, folks.
View episode
AW HELL YEAH. It's a new season of The Bachelor, and to celebrate, we've joined forces with the Maximum Fun network. Welcome to our new listeners! Just a heads up: We don't usually talk about the elemental composition of vaginas as much as we do in this one. It's a very special occasion.
View episode
PREPARE FOR BLASTOFF. We're diving into the details and stats of ALL 30 of the contestants for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette. Will Nick Viall, that milk-fed beauty, find love this time around? Like they always say, the third time's the charm! And if it isn't, then fuck it, give 'em a fourth time. Let's keep throwing this dude-spaghetti at the wall until he sticks.
View episode
We're about to hop right into another season of the Bachelor -- but before we do, we wanted to take a trip through time to revisit the very first season of this beloved television franchise. We're gonna party like it's 2002. Which means we're ALL getting our hair straightened.
View episode
Here's the situation: We didn't really have time to watch a reality dating show and prepare an episode for you this week. In lieu of our regular topic of conversation, we're talking about a different dating story, which is to say, our own. It's about to get vulnerable as heck up in here.

We're back from our week of parental absence, and we're here to serve as exasperating ambassadors to our new favorite television show on Earth: Terrace House: Boys and Girls in the City.

Our time with The Bachelorette Canada draws to a close in this week's Rose Buddies. Who's getting down on one knee? Who's going to win Jasmine's heart? Who the hell is the Canadian equivalent of Neil Lane? All this and more inside.

We're talking about a blissfully brief Men Tell All episode of The Bachelorette Canada this week, and preparing ourselves emotionally for the season's upcoming finale. We're going to miss you, Canada. Desperately.

We spend the first ten minutes of this hour-long podcast just rambling about straight-up garbage, which we hope you can forgive us for. After that, though: The hard work of deciding between the two final boys of The Bachelorette Canada!
View episode
It's Hometowns time! Canadian Hometowns are just like our American Hometowns, as it turns out, except the families are extra polite, and also there's only three of them. Come here us rank these folks' actual human families, and discuss the merits of a new, surprisingly educational YouTube channel.
View episode
The Bachelorette Canada is really getting down to the wire now, as Jasmine tries to whittle the list of boys down to a tight three before hometowns. Who will succumb to the BLOOD SACRIFICE?!?! Nah, we're just playing. Everything turns out pretty okay.
View episode
Alright, so, this one goes off on some WILD tangents, but we think they're worth pursuing. When not talking about the chart-topping hits of the late 90s, we also dive into this week's episode of The Bachelorette Canada!
View episode
Boy howdy, what a challenging episode. Between the non-stop gags, original music and foot-smoochin', our skeletons had a REAL hard time staying up in our bodies while watching Bachelorette Canada. But we stuck with it, because we know how bad you need this.
View episode
The Bachelorette Canada is spending some time exploring a drama that we just could not care less about, so on this episode, we do a deep dive into a very important subject: Which boys in the house have actually been ghosts the whole time?
View episode
Our new Canadian friends are still posted up in Sandals Jamaica, just busting out tight fives of super on-point slapstick and prop comedy. Join us for a dissertation on their craft as we discuss Episode 3 of The Bachelorette Canada!
View episode
  WHAT AREN’T THEY TELLING US? The truth is out there, by which we mean ‘The truth is under one of these boys’ shirts.’ This is a podcast about The Bachelorette Canada, by the way. This description wasn’t very clear, earlier.
View episode
We're back! And on a very strange schedule, in a very strange land: A marvelous territory known as Canada. Join us for our voyage into the first season of The Bachelorette Canada, and witness Jasmine's pure and righteous quest for happiness. Also, just revel in this GOOD batch of boys. GOOD BOYS AHOY.
View episode
It's here! Finale day is here! We're wrapping up the last two episodes of Bachelor in Paradise, which were basically like a four-hour-long waterslide of douche chills and genuine romance. FOUR COUPLES ENTER. THREE COUPLES LEAVE. Okay, well, they all leave, but one of them leaves very, very sad.
View episode
We're back, and ready to wrap up the unconscionable about of Bachelor-franchise television that we watched this week. Let's check in on Ashley/Caila/Jared, since ABC won't let us NOT check in on that wacky love triangle! Also, HOW ABOUT THAT NEW BACHELOR, HUH?
View episode
If, for some reason, you're having trouble downloading this episode of the podcast, don't fret! You can just download any other episode where we talk about the non-existent relationship between Jared and Ashley I., because apparently, there are people who haven't gotten enough of that particular saga. Please, please God, set us free.
View episode
Things are settling down in Paradise, which is kind of a relative measurement, because boy, are things still pretty buckwild in Paradise. Join us for a discussion of this week's events, which include a fateful tummydrink and a full-blown assault on mankind by El Nino, the Crab King.
View episode
What a turbulent four hours of television ABC made us watch this week! There were heartbreaking send-offs, grody arrivals and even the ascent of an unlikely emotional core for the whole BIP experiment! And then: The worst hour of TV this franchise has ever made. It's a rollercoaster! That dead-ends into a dumpster. Full of scorpions.
View episode
Yes, we're doing another episode of Rose Buddies ONE CALENDAR DAY after the last one. We just have to talk about the events that transpired during the Season Premiere of Bachelor in Paradise! Which is to say: The whole thing was kind of a trainwreck!

The finale for JoJo's season of The Bachelorette has come and gone, leaving one suitor the victor, and the other a jilted Heart Virgin. Join us for a straight-up exhausted unpacking of last night's episode, and BRACE YOURSELF because HOLY SHIT, Bachelor in Paradise starts TONIGHT.
View episode
Haha, we're having a super great time watching and talking about the Bachelorette this week. What a wild post-season, full of twists and turns that definitely DON'T defy human reasoning and logic! And man, what a lighthearted, well-intentioned Men Tell All, where absolutely no dickheads were given 75 minutes to barf their garbage on camera without reservation. A SUPER GREAT TIME.
View episode
Hey, remember when we promised that a bad episode was working its way down the ol' Bachelorette pipeline? We found it! It was this one, the Hometowns episode, which was so full of manufactured trash that it literally made our brains bloat up with disgust.
View episode
Sorry that we suggested this episode was going to be anything less than it was: A BARNSTORMER full of SHOCKING TWISTS and TURNS and CHILLS and THRILLS. So many REVELATIONS up in this episode of the Bachelorette. Let's break them down.
View episode
There wasn't a new episode of The Bachelorette last night, which is REAL COOL, ABC. COOL STUFF. Not like our whole enterprise depends on you creating and publishing new content, or anything. Anyways, we're talking about the next best thing on today's episode: The television show UnReal, one of our favorite franchises on the Lifetime network.
View episode
We down in SLUMPTOWN now, y'all. It's only natural; there's a few too many cooks in the kitchen at the moment, and most of those cooks are essentially the exact same person. Fortunately, the producers of The Bachelorette have left us a few wonderful gifts in this episode -- gifts made of human tears and masterful film editing.
View episode
Let us sing the final stanza of the song of Chad, and be done with it. Who will fill the power vacuum left by Chad's bulky, protein-infused frame? The answer is, of course: All of them, in their own way. All the boys are Chad, now.
View episode
Breathe in deep the fresh Pennsylvania air, and bellow out the first stanza of the Song of Chad. We're covering a very special two-episode chunk of The Bachelorette; a chunk that promised us lots and lots of man-on-man punching. How much man-on-man punching? We don't want to spoil it for you, but literally none.
View episode
WELCOME TO THE CHAD ZONE. This is now Chad's game to lose, and boy, is he going to lose it. We're on episode 2 of JoJo's season of the Bachelorette, and already things are getting both wet AND wild. Come hear us talk about pre-love, Chad's meat addiction, and an exploration of some of James Taylor's best sex songs.

Hello, and welcome back to our garbage hole. We are the king and queen of the garbage hole, and The Bachelorette is our only form of sustenance, here, in the garbage hole. We're talking about JoJo's debut episode of the new season of The Bachelorette, and the many clown-suitors who have cast a shadow over her life. Let's have a fun, safe and exciting new season, everybody!

It's been a long couple of months, but the dawn of a new season of The Bachelorette is nearly upon us. Join us for a bonus-length episode as we discuss the fleet of boys vying for JoJo's heart, and break down the Fantasy League rules we'll be playing with this year!

For this, the final installment of Roze Buddiez before we get back to our core competency, we're talking about two different television programs: Ireland's Take Me Out, and the identical Chinese show, If You Are The One. Also, we mourn the loss of a dear, wet friend.
View episode
This week, we watched a show that is literally titled Please Marry My Boy. It made us laugh harder than maybe any show in the history of television ever has? We hope we can pass some of that good, good energy along to you, our listeners.
View episode
Beauty and the Geek is like a little, mean time capsule of an era where reality shows just needed to be hateful and literally nothing else. It put a weird and bad taste in our mouth, and made us miss Are You The One — and, oh yeah, The Bachelor — desperately. Enjoy the episode!
View episode
Rose Buddies is dead, long live Rose Buddies. We're the One-ders, now, your one-stop shop for everything Are You the One? related. In this ep, we break down episodes 6 - 10 of Season Three, in which most of the dudes do some monstrous shit, and everyone does everything they possibly can to not win the game.

We're gonna stay on this little slice of heaven for as long as we possibly can. In our second discussion about MTV's excellent dating reality show/advanced math problem, we're taking a look at episodes 2 - 5 of Are You the One?, season three. Join us in the Truth Booth, won't you?
View episode
Yes, it is. The one, I mean. Sorry, let's back up: Rachel and Griffin, in their continued journey through the land of reality dating TV, have just watched a show called Are You The One. It was like a refreshing spring breeze after the harshest winter imaginable.

We're between seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette, which is terrible, because it has led us to this: A series of episodes in which we explore shows that are not The Bachelor and Bachelorette. We're starting things off with Flavor of Love, which is an absolute dumpster fire.
View episode
The finale is here. A shocking twist. Startling revelations. Unbelievable emotions. Lives are changed. Lives are ruined. Anatomy is blurred. Two women enter. One woman leaves. All are axed.
View episode
We discuss the unconventional Women Tell All special, during which accusations are hurled at Ben, the contestants and also a real life barnyard animal. We also have some programming notes, by which we mean about the future of Rose Buddies, but also about the literal cybernetic programming of CAILA-001.
View episode
This episode gets wet and wild, everybody. Just a heads up, here, before we get started. Adult themes are discussed, becuase it's Fantasy Suites week, which is another way of saying that it's the Doin' It Episode. Seriously, very ribald stuff, ahoy.
View episode
It's hometowns week, which means it's time for our semi-annual celebration of a dude telling four families the exact same stuff about their real-life children. But there's more important stuff happening here, in the real world -- namely, the vicious betrayal of a trusted, vitamin-filled friend.
View episode
This week's Bachelor was a fairly tame lead-up to the absolute FIRE that is Hometowns, but there were still plenty of noteworthy occurrences. Like that time that Ben piloted a boat into a crowd of women, or when Ben made a woman eat a french fry out of his mouth like a mama bird.
View episode
After last week's totally thrilling cliffhanger, Griffin and Rachel return to discuss the brutal efficiency of Ben Higgins: The Axeman. Four women got the boot this week, and we're all like, yo Benny, where's the fire, man? Take your time. Live the moment. Feed the swimming pigs.
View episode
Rachel and Griffin discuss the events of a pretty big snoozer of an episode, including the heartbreaking dismissal of a flawless contestant. There's also a live Superwater Zero taste test, which, buddy, that's just good radio.
View episode
Griffin and Rachel discuss the hidden talents of each contestant as revealed in Week 4: CAILA-001's aggro-sensuality, Lauren H.'s unique kiss texturing, JoJo's ability to track and kill a wild white rhino on the Las Vegas strip and, of course, Olivia's ability to fit four to six Nintendo 64 cartridges inside her head.

My wife and I absolutely love this show. It is required listening every week. It’s so easy to feel bummed or angry lately, but this podcast is the best remedy. The enthusiasm these two bring to the podcast is contagious. And besides getting enjoyment out of listening to their discussion, I’ve found a lot of pop culture to check out.
