Your Hosts

Meredith is 24 years old and has been a Bachelor fan for ten years, suffering through the downs of the Ari and Juan Pablo seasons to the New Hope of this season’s Pilot Pete Weber and his search for love.  Her favorite season was with Bachelorette Hannah Brown (of course), and Meredith dreams of hanging out with Hannah and Taylor Swift to compare notes on their respective boyfriends.  In addition to explaining The Bachelor to her father, Meredith is a recent college graduate, works for a Fortune 500 company, and is a big fan of SEC football.

The Dad is on the wrong side of 50, has been married for 28 years, and has recently learned about social media and streaming services such as NetFlix.  He spent the first seventeen years of Meredith’s life trying to convince her to attend his alma mater, before Meredith accepted a rose from a different college.  The Dad is now committed to making sure that Meredith finds love in a more traditional way than participating in a reality TV show and to providing reasonable, fatherly advice to anyone who thinks that finding love on a reality TV show is a good idea.  The Dad appreciates that The Mom keeps him company while he watches The Bachelor and that The Son wants nothing to do with it.
