Lindsay not too long ago talked to Juliet Litman, the Bachelor Party podcast host, about Weber’s Bachelor contestants. One, specifically, that they had opinions on was Hannah Ann Sluss.

It has not too long ago come out that Sluss is buddies with one other Hannah from the ABC actuality courting present: Hannah Godwin.

“It comes off smug,” Lindsay stated of Sluss’s efficiency on the present. However, Lindsay assumes it stems from Weber giving her that first rose on night time one. (Get it? Stems? Roses? Roses have stems? Okay.)

But was this all a long-con? A branding technique for her modeling profession? Lindsay additionally identified that Sluss could be very agency on individuals calling her Hannah Ann, not Hannah. Lindsay stated she was even” instructed by the higher-ups on The Bachelor: “don’t say Hannah.”

“She apparently has said, ‘I want to be called Hannah Ann,’ which I think is to differentiate—” Lindsay started.

“[To] brand herself?” Litman provided.

“Exactly,” Lindsay responded.“The girl knows exactly what she’s doing.”

This season on The Bachelor, the entire girls do–or a minimum of it appears that evidently approach. The contestants are always throwing round Bachelor cliches like “I’m not here to make friends,” accusing others of being right here for the “wrong reasons,” and so they seem like they had been raised on YouTube make-up tutorials. It’s like all of Weber’s contestants took a course on find out how to be the least genuine, most reality-TV model of your self.

Hopefully, Pilot Pete makes it out of his season of The Bachelor alive. Sure–ideally, he falls in love, however we’ll be blissful together with his simply his survival.
