Who isn’t watching the current 25th Season of ABC’s The Bachelor, one of the longest running Reality TV Shows in history. Who better than to help us break it all down than someone who has lived it first hand. This is the Behind The Velvet Rope Podcast after all and that is how we do it, first hand all day, every day. Enter Kendall Long, former Bachelor Season 22 and Bachelor in Paradise Season 5 contestant. First we catch up with Kendall finding out everything she has been up to since looking for love and roses on national TV. Speaking of looking for love on national TV, Kendall chats about former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk, Jr. who was supposed to be her “Knight In Shining Armor”, what being eliminated right before the Final Rose Ceremony was like, and discuses the likelihood of finding ever lasting love on a Reality TV show. Kendall also opens up about ex-boyfriend, fellow Bachelor in Paradise cast mate, Joe Amabile - the good, the bad, the other. Kendall and David chat about their fav Bachelors and Bachelorettes of all time and the epic last season of The Bachelorette - Clare Crawley “blowing it up”, her supposed rumored communication with Dale before the show, their breakup, and recent on line pics of their rumored makeup. Of course, we talk all things current season - how hot Matt James is, the drama that has already occurred amongst the women, the cringeworthy moments, Queen Victoria in all her glory and who will get that infamous final rose - supposedly Rachael Kirkconnell - and possible marriage proposal, mere weeks from now. On that note, we address Rachael’s past “alleged racial” actions and social media posts, Bachelor Nation’s response to those actions and posts, Chris Harrison’s chat with Rachel Lindsay which caused him to “step aside” from his role as host within Bachelor Nation, whether Chris should have stepped aside, the public’s reaction to Chris’ statement and, now, cancellation, the involvement and responsibility of ABC, whether Chris will and should be back and, if not, who should take over as the new host of Bachelor Nation. Like we said, there is a lot going on these days in Bachelor World and Kendall Long has arrived to help us make sense of it all.
