LITTLE FALLS, NJ -- TAPinto TV’s Brian Brodeur spoke with Jill Morgan and Maddie Moore, co-hosts of The Bachelor Degree, a podcast that gives listeners a weekly deep-dive recap into the ABC hit-series “The Bachelor”.
Each podcast episode starts with a recap of the Bachelor episode, which aired earlier that week. “We let our listeners know about the dates that go on and the rose ceremony. We go through the episode chronologically, and then normally we have a guest on,” Maddie explained.
“Jill is an absolute superstar in contacting Bachelor Nation,” Maddie said. “We hear about their journeys beyond the Bachelor or the Bachelorette and what they are up to now. A lot of these people have had super successful careers after being on The Bachelor.”
Brodeur asked Jill and Maddie for their dream Bachelor Nation interviewees. “Kaitlyn Bristowe and Hannah Brown. A lot of the Bachelorettes,” Jill said. “Kaitlyn Bristowe would be amazing,” Maddie agreed. “And Tyler Cameron.”
The Bachelor has grown into a phenomenon over the 25 seasons. Not only does the Bachelor Franchise have a website-- Bachelor Nation--for fans to stay up to date on news and drama, it also has spin-off shows like Bachelor in Paradise.
Like many people, Jill and Maddie love the Bachelor for the love stories and the drama. “I’ve been watching since I’ve been in middle school, and I’ve been watching it ever since. I haven’t stopped,” Jill said. “In the end, I’m a hopeless romantic, so I love watching the love stories evolve and the drama along with it.”
“Similar to Jill, I’ve been watching since I can remember,” Maddie explained. “It was a part of me and my mom bonding over reality TV, and it’s almost like a guilty pleasure. It isn’t super realistic. People don’t date 25 girls in real life, but it’s just fun to watch the drama and some of the successful love stories.”
Monday, March 15th, is the 25th season finale of the Bachelor with Matt James. Brian Brodeur asked Jill and Maddie for their winner predictions. “I think he is going to pick Rachael Kirkconnel,” Jill said.
“If I had to pick one person,” Maddie said, “I wish he would pick Bri Springs, who he just sent home.”
