Ellen and Whitney go through their favorites of 2015, everything ranging from books to music, movies and TV, performances and scenes. We’ve got you covered. Will Ellen go a full hour without talking about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? (Don’t count on it.) Will Whitney be able to overlook the swooniness of Oscar Isaac? (Don’t put money on it.) But still listen to find out.

It’s finale night, Rosies! How did I just discover that Rachel Dratch does a recap show of The Bachelor? And how did I get wrapped up in this show again? I love Rachel Dratch and I love making fun of The Bachelor so this is a great new discovery for me.
If you watch The Bachelor franchise, as I do, you are well aware that it is ripe for some ribbing. Enter Burning Love, a web series from Ken Marino and the rest of my favorite comedy personalities. The first season focused on a fireman who asked they ladies if they would “accept his hose”. It hit the mark so perfectly that it was scary.
This season looks like it will be no different. You have the musician who is just there to up his profile, the single dad who constantly bring up his son, the rich jack weed, the hot guy who “isn’t there for the right reasons”, and the guy who is still trying to get over a medical trauma (in this case, being born three months premature). Yeah, it’s pretty amazing.
This hasn’t always been the case. In fact, I used to be one of those that would see clips of The Bachelor featured on The Soup and think, “Who is watching this garbage?!” While I still think that this is pure, unfiltered garbage, I can no longer look away.
The thing with The Bachelor/ette/ Pad franchise is that it is the closest you can get to stopping to watch a train wreck without clogging traffic and loss of human life. It is also a somewhat fascinating experiment in human behavior. How stupid can one person be? How easy is it to manipulate a dumb jock? What happens to the female brain when she hasn’t consumed anything but vodka for a week in preparation for the first rose ceremony? All of these questions are bound to be answered in an episode of The Bachelor!
I can’t be alone, right? Do you prefer The Bachelor or The Bachelorette? (I find a group of women more entertaining, but I get more invested in the relationships on The Bachelorette)
(Side Note: If you watch the these shows and you enjoy a saltier take, I strongly suggest checking out the recaps at Lost Angeles. It has become the main reason I rush to catch the latest episode.)
