It's officially JanuARIE and we are ready for this season of "The Bachelor" with Arie Luyendyk!
No one is more excited than Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti as they break down last night's premiere on their Almost Famous Podcast! They let us know their favorites of the season, who was driving Ashley I crazy in the first episode, and what phrase Chris Harrison DIDN'T say that will have you questioning this entire season!
Ashley I can not be bothered with Krystal, the 29 year old fitness coach or Chelsea the 29 year old real estate executive assistant and mother. With Chelsea, Ashley I believes she is the one who will continue to talk negatively with her subtle digs on the other contestants. "She is the girl who is there to 'win the game,'" says Ashley I on the first impression rose recipient. Ben agrees there is something strategic in some of the things she is doing, but hopes she isn't just there to win for Arie's sake!
As far as this season's favorites, everyone on the podcast agrees Bekah is going to be a stand out character. She seems like a guys girl, was fun to watch during the premiere. Ben and Ashley I also share their love for Bibiana, the 30 year-old executive assistant from Miami, Florida and Marikh, the restaurant owner from Salt Lake City, Utah!
But something Ben points out in this week's podcast has us questioning everything.... Chris Harrison did not open or close last night's show saying "This will be the most dramatic season The Bachelor yet." The tagline that has become famous for the host is frequently said to kick-off the show and get viewers excited for the upcoming season. Does this mean this season is going to be a snooze-fest? Ashley I hopes not!
