BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
Bachelor Nation's Michael Garofola (on Chris Harrison, Cancel Culture, Recent Attack, Friend Clare & More)
Bachelor Nation’s Michael Garofola steps Behind The Rope. First things first, we chat with Michael about his recent “run-in” with a security guard. Michael chats about how he was assaulted and "had his phone smashed” as a result of this run in. Michael opens up about the circumstances surrounding this run in - what caused it, how it played out, the resulting injuries and the charges he has since pressed as a result. Once we make sure Michael is alright, we delve deep into what ya all wanna chat about, Bachelor Nation. Michael chats about his experiences on the “often underrated” reason of the Bachelorette he was on with Desiree Hartsock. Proving that you can really find love on TV, she is still married to and has a child with final rose holder Chris Siegfried, Michael breaks down how he felt when he was eliminated by Desiree and chats about the behind the scenes shenanigans of being on a show in the Bachelor Nation empire. Those shows also include Bachelor In Paradise and Winter Games. We discuss both. Speaking of Winter Games, we chat about one of Michael’s co-stars, the one on everyone’s minds and lips, Clare Crawley. We discuss the breakup with Dale and the current pictures of the two of them back together (?) that recently surfaced on line. Of course, we could not let Michael escape our clutches without discussing our current Romeo, Matt James, and how his season is going. On that note, we address Rachael Kirkconnell’s past “alleged racial” actions and social media posts, Bachelor Nation’s response to those actions and posts, Chris Harrison’s chat with Rachel Lindsay which caused him to “step aside” from his role as host within Bachelor Nation, whether Chris should have stepped aside, the public’s reaction to Chris’ statement and, now, cancellation, the involvement and responsibility of ABC, whether Chris will and should be back and what the future looks like for Bachelor Nation. There is a lot going on these days in Bachelor World and Michael is here to help us make sense of it all.
