'The Bachelor' Season 23, Episode 1 Recap

By TV Guide

Welcome to Episode 2 of A Beautiful Podcast to Fall in Love, TV Guide's unofficial Bachelor Nation podcast. This week, former The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise cast member Jacqueline Trumbull and TV Guide associate editor Liam Mathews break down Colton Underwood's season premiere.Topics discussed include Jacqueline's observations about why Night One is the least honest night; our favorite competitor so far (Nicole); the show's tribute to Chris Harrison on his 17th anniversary as Bachelor host, which was weird but nice (and obviously a way to fill time on an episode that shouldn't have been three hours); why the episode may not have shown if fake Australian Bri kept her accent for the whole night and what she might be going through today as the premiere's biggest meme; Catherine's obvious lack of connection with Colton and willingness to do anything for airtime; our picks for the final four, and much more.Follow Jacqueline on Instagram Liam on ​Twitter more on The Bachelor from TV Guide Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.Learn more about your ad choices.
