About the Hosts
@Bacheloclues used to be a regular person, a casual viewer of The Bachelor like millions of other people. But one fateful night during Season 19 (Chris Soules) he saw something that would change his life forever. On a One-On-One Date with Britt Nielsen in which she and Soules were supposed to be floating through the clear blue sky in a hot air balloon, there was grass sticking up from the lower right corner of the frame. They were not in the sky at all, but instead on the ground. The entire scene was a lie. At that very moment @Bachelorclues was born. It began as a Bachelor IG meme account and over the next six years it would become an obsession that turned into unparalleled analysis of The Bachelor as a sport complete with brand new statistical categories to back it up. @Bachelorclues can’t remember who he was before The Bachelor took over his life and he’s finally accepted it.
