"Why do we watch these shows??" we cry, and Dr Jodi McAlister, AKA a Doctor of Love, answers intelligently while being very funny.

Jodi is a feminist academic whose work focuses on romance, sex, love, women and pop culture. She gives us lols from her encyclopaedic knowledge of the global Bachieverse, a great outline of how dating show formats could (and should) include LGBTQI folk and why better representation of Black and Indigenous people and people of colour in these shows MUST be a priority. Plus her recommendations for other shows you should definitely check out.

Your co-hosts Lucy May (reality dating TV tragic) and Karen Pickering (Noted Public Femmo, Bachieverse newbie and lol-bringer) take a dip in the warm Fiji bin juice of Bachelor in Paradise Australia 2020.
