From my understanding the lead gets to pick 3 or 4 guys they actually wanna date and then producers weed out the rest overtime. Since its early days and a few that have gotten little or no screentime will unfortunately be stuck with Karl for awhile but he should be gone before the half

So, front-runner’s Connor, right? The cat guy? He seems to be like, scarily on Katie’s level in terms of compatibility and humor. They’re cute together! Read more

Thanks Gwen! You are my (fast forwarding through much of this bullshit and saliva - ew) angel!

Next on the agenda for the Romanian government: Getting that last episode of Single Female Lawyer back on the air.

Fortunately for current Columbo fans, seven full seasons are available for streaming on Amazon Prime, with 10 on Peacock. Read more

I’m living in a fancy suburbia with my folks during the pandemic, and there’s a lot of weirdness but also sometimes it’s really pleasant, so idk if I’m being stepford wive’d or not!

Fill your pick up bed with colored balls and call it “Mobile Chuck E. Cheese”

Thank you for your service, Gwen. Skipped this one because I hate the interminable intros cocktail “party.” Maybe I’ll re-DVR it. I enjoy THESE.
