Our Hosts

Chris Burns

Chris Burns aka Fat Carrie Bradshaw's jealousy of never being able to be on The Bachelor has fueled his desire to talk about it on The Betchelor. 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

Meet The Cast (Michelle's Season Preview)

There's one week left before Michelle's season of the Bachelorette, so Kay, Chris, and Jared are here to share their reactions to the cast. They start with a conversation about their initial favorites, before turning to their cast bios to hand out some preseason impressions. Plus, Kay even shares a story from the time she slid into one contestant's DMs. They discuss what they know so far about the contestants (aside from those cringy fun facts), and how Michelle's season will compare to Katie's. Finally, they wrap with their closing remarks and share their top three picks of the season.

F*ck It! Let's Get Engaged (BiP Season Finale)

It's the Season 7 finale of Bachelor in Paradise, and Kay and Jared are here to recap it all. They start with their overall thoughts on the finale (including the surprising amount of engagements that actually happened). They discuss Noah and Abigail's break up, and Jared shares his thoughts on the hypocrisy in this episode. They get into their episode names, before discussing Aaron and James' bromance, Becca and Thomas' break up (but are we surprised?), and the final couples' fantasy suites. And of course, we end with our Weekly Categories, including some Would You Rathers, a unanimous Paradise Prediction, Cringiest Moment, and the final Will You Accept This Rose recipient.

Fast Times at Bachelor in Paradise High

We’re a week away from the season finale and Kay, Chris, and Jared are back to discuss the latest episode of Bachelor in Paradise, starting with their reactions to Jesse Palmer being named the new host of The Bachelor. They run through a quick episode recap and their Name That Episode segment before sharing their thoughts on the secret hotel scandal (and why Jared is no longer on Team Ivan). Plus, the island welcomes a new beach arrival and Paradise Prom quickly turns into an episode of the twilight zone. Finally, it’s time for the Weekly Categories, including some Would You Rathers, Paradise Predictions, Cringiest Moments, and a deep dive into Kay’s Weekend at the Governor’s Ball. And of course, we end with the Will You Accept This Rose recipient.
