It’s here: the best day of our quarantine lives so far.
Ever since The Bachelor ended a month ago and we have since been asked to stay in our homes for the greater good, we’ve been craving something Bachelor-adjacent to serve as a distraction. It has now arrived in the form of The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart, a six-week sort of experiment that’s like Bachelor in Paradise but there’s no sand, and everybody’s a musician who’s never been on a Bachelor show before.
It’s a brand new journey for the franchise and for us, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. What better way to pass the endless days than by obsessing over a bunch of new single people competing for love? There isn’t one, and because we’re all craving connection right now, we’re going to live blog each and every episode. That way we can pretend we’re all at one giant watch party together, having the time of our lives and listening to our own hearts as they tell us to grab yet another glass of rosé. So here we go.
8:00 p.m.: We’ve barely begun, and Chris Harrison is once again bringing up the movie A Star Is Born. Does he or anyone else on this show know that that movie ended in tragedy? Apparently not, and we don’t care.
8:08 p.m.: Trevor, 29, is doing this right by appearing shirtless with his dog. Seems like a real mistake if he doesn’t bring the dog to the show with him. A hot musician with a dog seems hard to resist.
8:13 p.m.: These limo arrivals just feel wrong since they’re at a mansion but they’re just greeting Chris Harrison and not trying desperately to impress one nervous hottie.
8:17 p.m.: “What is a really good memory you have from your childhood?” “I had seizures and brain surgery when I was six. It was awesome!” Now that’s a hell of a perspective and a hell of a way to answer that question.
8:20 p.m.: A love triangle has begun! Jamie’s got eyes for both Ryan and Trevor, and girl, we get it.
8:26 p.m.: Not only is this man singing about a “hot touch,” but he’s already diving in for kisses with Savannah by saying “I like your lips,” after a real mediocre beatbox session. Props to Savannah for getting out of that.
8:31 p.m.: There are four more guys than girls! Four guys are going home! That’s a lot of guys!
Stay tuned for more!
The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
