Episode 34 The Bachelor: Nick, 5th Time's a Charm? (Nick Viall GOAT)

This week GOAT showed Nick Viall’s season ... to be honest, Nick’s season has it all: love stories, drama, diversity, AND our queen Rachel Lindsay-Abasolo! If you haven’t yet heard WAP, you need to - we mention it A LOT during this episode. Check it out here.

We spend some time discussing the Taylor/Corinne drama from Nick’s season. We talk about emotional intelligence and emotional maturity. We talk about whether or not Taylor was bullying Corinne.

We declare ourselves to be a podcast that is squarely against a nap shame. We will not stand for it. We also demand a recipe to cheese pasta (*NOT* cheesy pasta) to see if it’s what we think it is.

Of course, we spend a decent amount of time loving on the icon and legend Rachel. Representation matters. In this GOAT episode, Chris talks to Tayshia and Natasha Parker about the impact of Rachel on this franchise,  there is more work to be done.

Danielle tallies up Nick’s POC points and we have a new point leader! Nick’s GOAT recap gets 39 points! (discussion is at 1:05:17)
