Reality Steve Carbone (RealitySteve.com) joins Austin on this extra-long Bachelorette Finale episode of The Show. Steve talks about his Smackoff call on The Jim Rome Show, why he thought Hannah B. would be the next Bachelorette so early on in Colton’s season, why she blew the expectations out of the water, who the next Bachelor will be, why Tyler C. was unlike any other contestant in history, whether or not the crazier seasons make his job of vetting spoilers harder, what he thought when he first caught wind of Jed’s girlfriend from home, whether or not The Bachelor franchise has become too self-aware, where the franchise goes from here to prevent more Jed (read: fam grabbing) instances in the future, what he thought of Jed’s dog food jingle and male revue dancing. And also, Steve and Austin talk about Taylor Swift, Luke Perry’s death, The Hills: New Beginnings, and whether or not Steve has an exclusive spoiler for this podcast (4:36).
FOR NON-BACHELORETTE FANS: We’ve still got you covered with a take on Jon Gruden is gonna Jon Gruden (like say how much Nate Peterman is growing on him) and there’s nothing you can do about it (1:13:49), Trevor Bauer and how he’s essentially living out the plot to the movie BIG (1:21:02).
Also, Austin joined as always by Katy Dail (@thenonblogger) to breakdown the season finale of The Bachelorette, Jed’s slimy-ness, Tyler C.’s future prospects, and a recital of the preamble to the constitution (1:31:02).
And can’t end the show without some Shout-Outs. These week some go to Smokey The Bear, anyone who covers NFL training camp, the new trailer for the movie CATS, Steve Ballmer, Zack Greinke, Yasiel Puig, the MLB Trade Deadline, Marcus Stroman, and much more (2:13:48).
