Rose Buddies Review

Are you on a Bachelor or Bachelorette binge? So are Griffin and Rachel McElroy, your new favorite Rose Buddies. The two pair up for an in-depth discussion of Bachelor and Bachelorette episodes, often to an impressive degree. This podcast is a series of 2 hour-long discussions of a much shorter show.

The Hosts: Griffin and Rachel McElroy are a married couple, now with child, who have a lot to say. Both are currently working on a TV show not too far from the one that stole their heart. Besides that, they host a new podcast, Wonderful, together. Griffin hosts two more himself – My Brother, My Brother, and Me and The Adventure Zone.

The Format: The format of Rose Buddies is quite simple: a married couple sit in front of microphones and chat about their favorite show. They share actual hosting duties, going back and forth breaking down segments of the show. One will recap a scene from The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, and the other will jump in. The show continues with this pace from start to finish.

Why You Have to Listen: Griffin and Rachel are your new favorite podcast couple, and this podcast is the perfect audio double date. If you’re a big fan of romance shows, you’ll love this. This sort of in-depth discussion of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor is the kind only super fans can have. There’s a lot more to talk about than you might think!
