Listen to the Podcast
Amy and Haley are back to preview the men competing this season on The Bachelorette and they continue the tradition of doing a draft— this time with a new special guest, Melissa Deni , one of the Big Brother Live Feed Correspondents on Rob Has a Podcast. Amy and Haley hope that Melissa’s lack of luck in previous RHAP drafts will help them sail back into a draft victory after continual losses in recent drafts.
The Bachelorette this season is Becca Kufrin, a 28-year-old publicist from Prior Lake, MN who won Arie’s season and was then dumped, with Arie proposing to Lauren on After the Final Rose.
Haley, Amy and Melissa first talk about some news in Bachelor Nation, including the trio of breakups from Bachelor Winter Games (Ashley and Kevin, Clare and Benoit, Dean and Lesley), Sean and Catherine’s new baby Isaiah Hendrix, and former contestants appearing on Ex on the Beach and Bachelor in Paradise Australia.
Melissa, Amy and Haley then jump into their Draft selections, based primarily the men’s photos and bios on ABC.com. Unfortunately the bios of the men are a little sparse this year compared to previous questionnaire formats, so Melissa did additional scouting on Instagram while Haley looked into sports stats. Follow George (@GeorgeCTV) for all the point tallies and details on the draft scoring. Haley goes first, followed by Melissa, and then Amy. Amy makes the 3rd and 4th picks, and the draft proceeds as a snake draft.
