Our Hosts

Chris Burns

In addition to The Bachelor, he's obsessed with most of Bravo, RuPaul's Drag Race and reality shows about living off the land in Alaska, because it's important to be well-rounded.

Kay Brown

Kay Brown is an LA-based social media expert who has a love/hate relationship with The Bachelor. Other talents include making jokes at her own expense.

Jared Freid

Jared Freid is a New York City-based comedian who sounds like he’s screaming but he’s just really excited to dive into your dating issues!

Where to Start

Avengers Assemble!

It’s week 5 of Bachelor in Paradise and Kay, Chris, and Jared are back to unpack this Tuesday’s episode, starting with a brief synopsis of what happened this week, before getting to their Name That Episode segment. They discuss Brendan and Pieper’s departure, Maurissa and Riley’s intimate date featuring some classic whipped cream, and Tia and Blake’s quick (but also questionable) connection. Then, Mari and Kenny are back together, and Natasha is given another chance at love, this time with the new arrival of Dr. Joe. Plus, they talk about Ivan’s failed (and awkward) attempt to kiss Kendall, who seemingly does not want to move from Grocery Store Joe. Lastly, it’s time for the Weekly Categories, including some difficult Would You Rathers, their Weekly Crush, a Kay’s Weekend you don’t want to miss, and the Will You Accept This Rose Recipient.

Then it’s time to recap Tuesday’s episode, including Alana and Chris’ pre-show romance, followed by their early exit, Chelsea’s arrival, and Becca’s first Paradise date with Thomas. Finally, they close with their Weekly Categories with special edition of Jared’s Minute.

Cake Wars & The Boom Boom Room

Kay, Chris, and Jared return to recap the third week of Bachelor in Paradise, starting with their Name That Episode segment some new (and not so promising) arrivals. They discuss their thoughts on the Mari-Demi-Kenny love triangle and the seemingly perfect relationship Tammy had (and quickly ruined) with Aaron. They also talk about Maurissa and Riley’s undeniable chemistry and why Connor can’t ever catch a hint, before unpacking yet again another love triangle, this time between Nick, Karl and Deandra. Finally, it’s time for our Weekly Categories, including some Would You Rathers, Paradise Predictions, Jared’s Minute, and the Will You Accept This Rose recipient.
