So many people in the Secret Facebook Group have been talking about it, so today #ALMOST30NATION is invading Bachelorette Nation for a conversation with Eric Bigger, previously a cast member on The Bachelorette Season 13, currently a cast member on Bachelor in Paradise Season 5 (which just premiered on August 7th) – and so so so much more than that!

Eric offers us a peek behind the scenes of a reality TV show, dishes on all the dirt, and offers an interesting perspective on the lack of diversity in shows like these. Of course, it’s not all reality TV. We also chat about…

 

  • Krista + Eric have the same birthday
  • Dating on TV + in the real world
  • Listening to understand, not be understood
  • Being “emotion rich” (as opposed to material rich)
  • Understanding why people cheat
  • Commitment isn’t the same thing for everyone
  • Connecting with the other men on The Bachelorette
  • Being told to “tone it down” + “not be too deep”
  • Becoming a new-age role model
  • Diversity in Reality TV
  • What Eric does at the end of day
  • What The Bachelorette house is like on a day-to-day basis
  • The 600-question questionnaire contestants have to fill out
  • How being on The Bachelorette has affected Eric’s dating life
