    Kay, Chris, and Jared start with a Bachelor conspiracy theory: are the girls’ names written on the roses? Then they dive into this week’s episode of The Bachelor. The two-on-one rose brings out the worst in...Meredith, a canceled cocktail party leads to canceled hopefuls, and Serena C. flails like a fish out of water (thank God Katie had a harpoon). They react to Pieper and Matt dancing the night away to another nameless country band and Tyler C. dropping by for a Punk’d episode featuring Matt and Katie. Plus, they talk about a ghost of Bachelor past who returned to haunt Nemacolin. They kick off this week’s categories with some wild Would You Rather questions, their Top 3, a unanimous IG Rising Star, and the Villain of the Week. Finally, they close things with some Paradise Picks, the Cringe Harrison Award winners, a passionate Jared’s Minute, and some Will You Accept This Rose selections.
