IHGB #249: Bachelor Clayton Episode 1
Sadly, I missed last week’s introduction into Clay-en’s season due to a little virus known as COVID wrecking havoc on my immune system. I’ve been writing about this silly show for nearly twenty years, and the idea of missing an inaugural post of a brand new season just wouldn’t do.
Insisting I quarantine from my roommate Lara, I watched the glory of Clayton’s season unfold on an iPad in my germ-infested room upstairs. I knew absolutely nothing leading up to that moment. Traditionally, Some Guy in Austin and I record a podcast detailing our top-tier picks of the season. Unfortunately, the aches in my bones and my eyelids’ insistence on remaining droopy eighty percent of the day hindered me from adequately preparing for the great event. Instead of spending the week learning names and stalking Instagram accounts, I developed genuine feelings for my trusty bottle of NyQuil and a love/hate relationship with the act of swallowing.
In other words, I went into this episode blind. And it was glorious. Some Guy in Austin and I discuss all the important things you need to know, like:
- Which icebreaker got the job done?
- Will Salley return in a future episode (yes)
- Was Claire bored? Drunk? Or both?
- Who are the frontrunners vying for Clay-en’s heart?
- And should I continue to watch the show each week hopped up on NyQuil?
I’m kidding. Or am I?
Here’s the recap for episode 1.
