Behind the scenes on ‘The Bachelor’

In last night’s episode of The Bachelor, someone familiar might just have appeared. I’ve always be a fan of the show and loved watching, so when I was asked to help explore intimacy and connections between Matt and the final 5, I didn’t hesitate to jump in. But, of course I always have more to say… (I could talk a fish under water). Throughout the day I spent on set, we ran two activities to help Matt explore the unspoken bond, deep intimacy and connection he had with each of the girls. What I loved about this concept is that there is a decent part of this show based on superficial aspects. Of course, you have to be attracted to someone as well as have a bond. There is a lot of talk about futures matching up and ticking things off a list. At this point, the idea of explore…

Are you dating a guy from Bachelor In Paradise?

My latest obsession is Bachelor in Paradise. It’s like watching real life Tinder play out with the backdrop of Fiji. But besides the drama, chaos, love triangles, squares and every other shape, it’s the representations of men that has me intrigued. Glued this week, I realised there are three main types of men represented on this show. And I’ve dated them all! The Bills, Jules and Ivans of this world. But for the poor girls in paradise, being maybe a bit younger and naïve, they might not be able to see what I see (and what I have learnt). But that doesn’t stop me from sharing it with the rest of you.  (Please note, this is not meant to be disrespectful towards these men, but this is more about how to navigated the obstacles when dating them). Lets start with Bill… If you have not been watching, Bill is the…

Could watching ‘Married At First Sight’ be beneficial to your relationship?

Married At First Sight chaos has hit our screen once again and is proving to be the most talked about show on TV, but not always for the right reasons. From a rating perspective, it’s fantastic, but there has been a lot of heat surrounding the show with body shaming comments, ghosting, emotional abuse and toxic relationships. Everyone has an opinion and everyone wants to share it. But this year I’ve seen more fire pointed towards the network than ever before. It’s been more the articles online, the recaps and the comments that is really grabbing my attention. And I feel as though many of us are missing a strong point. I have seen some comments saying that 9 should not have put characters on the show and that they are even responsible for glamorising toxic relationships. TV glamorises most things that are bad for us, so why should a…

Do you have to be hot to find love on TV?

I recently watched the preview for the upcoming show, Love Island Australia. Whilst I think I’m already addicted before it starts, I doubt it’s for the right reasons. All I see is a bunch of very hot people on their way to an island so this bunch of very hot people can perve on each other, allow us to perve on them and start hooking up with each other (which we will also be perving on). It’s voyeurism at its best. I’m not sure how much genuine love will be found on this so-called love island, but it will be fun to watch. If you haven’t seen the clip already, warning, it might make you want to run straight to the gym. It’s one of the more sexier shows that will strike our screens, but it seems it’s not the only one at the moment. Have you been watching Bachelor…
