Matt James named first black lead on "The Bachelor"
"We can talk about all the different ways that the protests the black lives matter movement have made an impact but the one the one that definitely I didn't see coming was impacting television do you see that one coming I didn't I really didn't the interesting that the the thing that's impacted television we're talking about is the bachelor for the first time this is ever right in all the seasons of the bachelor any seasons they are going to now finally feature a lead as African American as the bachelor for their show yeah they have an African American bachelor now there was an African American bachelorette but this is the first time there has ever been an African American bachelor that's huge that's huge for a variety of reasons that's what I want to talk about is indeed with us do we have any we have Eddie Eddie adept Narges at our pronounce it anti death March our daughter I'm sorry say again hello hi Janet Marie Dennis Dennis okay Yeni de energy from reality blurred dot com joins us welcome on the disk institute of his birthday's line I'm a big you know I I like I think that a lot of women are like me there's kind of like you I'm a romantic at heart I would have loved the bachelor join fifteen seasons ago if there had been more diversity on their your roommate who just have not did just really kept with a predominantly white cast they don't know the little better job than sort of diversifying the last few years and people have call them out for having white lead after white read you're after year after year and their argument was that well this is an ongoing soap opera and we cast from the people who were on the previous season so we have to have more diverse cast and they did that and last year we had agreed to potential candidate Mike Johnson who could have been a bachelor and instead they went with another white guy big surprise what is the rationale the day give or have given for why they've not been more diverse in their selections I don't know if they've actually like besides just explaining that you know that they really do want to cast from within the franchise to kind of keep those story lines going I haven't really seen this and an argument about why they're doing better or what they are what purpose there would be but after casting regional India a few years ago who is the first black bachelorette my complaint to the creator of the bachelor franchise said basically that viewers didn't watch because probably that because she was black he said I'll just call him here he said how old are you going to explain the fact that she's down in the ratings when black or white she was an unbelievable plot bachelorette it revealed something about our fans and I think about something about our fans are you there is some racists and the fan base you wouldn't want to watch a black person on the show it's probably scared them off from doing it in the last few years until obviously this morning when they announced their change of heart they decided to push back and you know I that's it that that is interesting to me and one of the things I said to you in my email and he was that you know I spent forty years in television news and that's the kind of thing that we used to hear over the years you know well our viewers might not accept that from an African American hi the viewers might not take to a black person sitting there at the desk obviously this was years ago and we used to argue but you know what maybe you have to set the trend maybe you have to show viewers you have to teach viewers that African Americans can do this job just as well as anyone else do you think that the black lives matter movement is helping to push that narrative along now I think so I mean I think obviously the events of the last two weeks and that our region I think finally a lot of people understanding what bald black lives matter activists and others have been saying for years and years I think really it was probably a catalyst in this instance temperature it's you know I think that's a good step forward but what you're saying there is a lot of the systemic problems and I think that's even true on the bachelor and me in the franchise like most of the producers on the show are white Rachel Lindsay has talked about her experience on the bachelorette when the show cast someone who had posted a bunch of racist messages online and then basically created a story line in which he was in conflict with another person then and sort of exploited that racial tension to try to get ratings for that you've done so you know it's not just good enough to just make this one change that's the start and I think this you know black lives matter being the catalyst without is is excellent and now though they really have to figure out how to produce the show in a way that is actually not as inclusive but like really honoring the people that are casting instead of just you know doing the same thing that they have been doing for forty students

"Duly skin you know it really is great staff. Let me ask you this. It's like do you have the Like the high top bugs. Yeah absolutely press box so the Tallinn's which come like halfway up your calf of the ankle boots which come just above your ankles that are really good to flying and then I have these bad boys that are might indoor house slippers. That's what I got. I got only minor pink. Thank minor as manly as these can get a hold on but like do you fly. Here's like I almost because I was was in New York for so long. I almost flaine. That's not what the the low top ones but with the high top ones. I can't be that guy. I can't be the flaw guy that flies in eggs WANNA know who is the king of male dogs right now. I wish I could get him on that. He hates shoes blood. Yeah blood has worn upwards since I can remember like way before cool or thing like both my parents. They had like the tall like halfway up your leg of eggs that they used to walk around the farm and then and to this day like that is my dad's ultimate choice of footwear. He rocks eggs. He flies in them. Honestly he'd probably perform in them if my mom would let him like he lubes them. Feel like billy ray needs to get on stage in some mugs and you know he also needs the sponsorship. Oh he for sure into sponsorship speaking of so. We're recording this before the grammys. I'm doing a pre show so I've been doing a bunch of research. How Old Town road a a for record of the year? The problem is this is a stack the lineup. He's going up against. Let's the grammys. What do you expect I know but like body body bears on? They're not GONNA win much. I love you Justin Vernon Billy eyelash Bagai. That's me tough or `Grande seven rings going to be tough but I thought that was so long ago that that's not GonNa win the her situation hard place. She's cool. I'm rooting for that. Because Rubio mom and her husband had it. Does some help right in that song. So bottom line. All the songs were huge close to being with this list L.. Here's no matter how long this list is. No one can beat eight old town roads record. Yeah they have the have the record for the longest holding spot a number one ever compete with that. Yeah you're right you're right Khalid's on their the Liz Oh and post Malone and Swaley so I think you're right. I think that's a good call. I think that Old Town road is GonNa win in record of the year. I don't know if he's GonNa win album of the year though now. I think that I think bill or Lizard is going to win album of the year ending named Billy. I will clean up pretty good this year. Yeah I agree not here super exciting. Please tell your dad. That won't see him. Well maybe I will build a carpet. But it's it's hard to miss you know. I know guess who decided to walk the carpet. Noah already was Tisch. It's amazing. I can't wait to see your look. I can't either. She says you know. She claims that she does. She hates attention. She hates getting getting dressed up. She hits the whole process of getting ready Blah. But she does this. We're she'll be like I'm not going out long get dressed up and then the day of shall decide to go. I was talking to yesterday and she was like. I think I'm going to go and just walk the carpet and I'm not going to sit in the audience. Like Noah can do that. That's what she's doing well dealer for you to see my look. It's a bold one. must say Maceo right now. You know what this is the time to be bold. The grammys are the ultimate time to be bold red carpet. All right. I'm going White Jack Jack who yeah. Yeah you're GonNa Look Very Tan and white. No but I've lost my Tan. I have lost my Tampa returned to me really early and white makes you look more Tan. I think you'RE GONNA look bear ten. Well I'm excited about it. You WanNa talk show or what I think it's you I don't know. Oh I did. She actually buckle up your seat belts frozen hose. You're listening to your favorite thing. PODCAST wells buckle. Oh your seatbelts is really. We've really embraced really embraced. It's quite nice excited about the show. Today we are going to have well someone that everyone wanted to be the bachelor but didn't become the bachelor of Mike. Johnson will be on the show a little bit later. You had a little crush on my Johnson. Let's just say it didn't you. He's super good looking she. We're good looking guy. Seemed seemed really. Nice Yeah Yeah big crush. He's really cute. I met him ever so briefly at Iheart festival this last year. He was standing out there during hiring miles performance and I got to say hi to him so he seems really nice. The after watching this week's bachelor episode like I feel like Mike can have two thoughts. Here he can be like mad. Dodged a bullet. Peter is drowning in. This looks hard or or he's probably like I should have picked me after watching this big episode on like it get a little bit of a backbone Peter. Yeah that's my one thing is like all those women smell blood in the water and they know that they're able to you kind of make them feel crappy if these things were in a vacuum singular things that will be the focal point but they are able to have a scapegoat for all of it. I just feel a little vindicated because my hot take last week. was that La Eliah how you say your name was was kind of being bullied and then you see this week that like you made up not knowing her lady you know all right so then what are your thoughts about about F- Four. Everyone is turning on him. There's usually this whole unspoken rule of the bachelor can do no wrong or the Bachelorette Bachelorette can do no wrong. You know what I mean but this year the season the girls are turning on him. He kinda deserves it. You think so Kinda. It's just he he. He makes moves that someone would normally do like giving Sydney that rose after she called that girl out like you said you said it was like rewarding bad behavior. It was like that I don't know just the whole back and forth on everybody and for me I just don't understand why get so hung up this early on one person because I mean if I were there and he was all hung up on this elaine situation and spent the entire date with her and making her feel okay and giving her. The rose goes after he'd sent her home and there's so many other women left like I would feel I would feel the way they do and I honestly it's like if you WanNa land that bad dad just frigging picker. Instead and everybody'll I don't know in his defense I think he's like I got bad information. And that's not fair to myself and it's not fair to a Laya. Sorry if you guys all piled on that girl this is what you get that moment in the rose ceremony. When what's what's the girl's name the that made up the store that didn't know Elaine? What's her name? I don't even know name Victoria Right. And she's like only WanNa talk to you. I know I didn't want to do this right now. I don't want to sit down if I were like all right. Then get the fuck Outta here because I would tend to both home. Yeah other because you said you didn't know her dude and then kind of I just went to Vegas together. You guys are both lying to me. So you know sent him both home. Get them both out here. You know what I mean. Yeah maybe so. If we learned anything Pizza Nice guy kind of being the astle that would just be super confusing. Guess he said it a million times like as long as you are super honest with from jump street than we're good and I'd be like Hey Victoria you've fucking wide so you don't get to be upset here. SISTER OKAY IF ANYONE GETS TO BE UPSET. It's me because I don't see everything you guys do. So I'm musing. You guys to tell me what's going on and if you don't want to be here because you don't want her to be here great but tell me that but don't make up stuff that that really kind of like I don't know why I was like Dude Center home right now if you have that attitude Didn't like that in doing that. Thing of like this is maybe a bad analogy. She but you know when you get caught cheating. The person that gets caught cheating than turns on the other person and the makes it about them. That's what she did to him like you. You got caught lying to him and now your mad called projection for sure. I didn't like that I don't either. I like I like I said I mean I feel like I would have been like you know what y'all both a home because years you're just causing too much crap but here's the other thing my whole thing with the Laya is when that many people don't like someone and have a problem with someone. There's there's adding that's A. That's a sign that something you know what I mean like. That's a red flag like you. Don't WanNa be with someone. That has a hard time getting along with other people. I mean that's just something. There's a flaw in someone's character when that many people don't like them and that would be the reds. I wouldn't have been like. Oh One person said you're a liar and they don't know you know you're saying you do go. Oh home I would. I would say listen if this many people have a problem with you. That's a red flag to me and that's where my concern. I feel that and like I feel like that's what Sarah is saying to. Let's just start start from the beginning. Everyone from Cleveland is like fuck you guys. They're Harrison's like we're going to in Cleveland Ohio and they're like yeah coke okay. My favorite thing about the other Victoria Dettori or something he gets in the plane by the way now come some convinced that they pick Peter because he makes it so much easier for them to get people places for dates because he can fly them now for sure you know on private pilots like it'll be fine. I'm like this a a lot of work for me guys. Yeah so they're in the plane. Look there's an amusement park and Victoria's like I love the museum are and then wait. Are Those Roller coasters. And I was like what the fuck do you think are at museum parks amusement..

"Talked about the ministry aspect but I've been in startups new businesses and obviously the the cost aspect when you had this dream in your mind and and you've got an idea like man. I really want to get it obviously with you. Many times me in the past the financial chill obstacles were just too much. I need a person to do this and I don't know how to do this. I don't advocate this. So for many people out there thinking about starting a a business this does give them the opportunity or maybe even growing their businesses in a different area. They may say you know. I'm I'm in the This this trainer through this mode or this canal of my business this marketing channel and I would like to to venture out and try it in this because I think I could be successful but cost is always the a hurdle in the objective and and just maybe a little bit more about how. That's allowed you to do what you do. Yeah well like I said I definitely wouldn't have been able to uh-huh tackle this dream without having the opportunity to get the employees that I've got at the price that we have have gotten in that and so you know we have five now and looking to grow that over two thousand some twenty to twenty five or thirty or more this year and there's a there's a big need out there for faith based high quality animation. Listen and again to be able to offer a high quality product at a very reasonable price to faith-based ministries into others will allow us to to grow that team over there and oftentimes your payroll is overwhelming Wyoming. To the point. Where you you know? You can't build your company the way you want to just because you can never get ahead of yourself and by utilizing people in Zimbabwe. I think you can. I think you can generate the revenue and bring people on while still generating sufficient. Oh Shit revenue and that's for me the key to growing this thing and that that's one of my partners objective all along has I've been to grow this business. Because we know that each person we add to a client or to one of our companies it significantly impacting possibly six or eight people. It's not only sponsoring that that person that works for us that team member but it it could be their children their spouse and most likely it's other a member of their family their their mother brother sister. So it's it's a true blessing knowing that each person we put as we say a button to see a we. Actually we are are having a major impact on the ministry in Africa's well yeah most definitely and I'm excited about you know making a difference in the lives of many many many more. Well you truly are the numbers out there. Say that less than four percent of the people in the world actually set goals the number of people that probably then have those dreams get squished because they they look at uc the financial santeuil burden. I'm going to have and they gotta keep working their job because obviously we have obligations. So we've got some things working for twenty twenty dream starter packages that were excited about where the people like yourself can can can take leverage their business and and make it successful while same time being diligent legit to see that they're impacting ministries. And giving back to God in a way that we we we all are looking for to be impactful in our lives more than just the the standard tie if you will. We're making an impact on on people's lives as well Mike. I would ask what what what kind of to kind of wrap this up a little bit. But Comey what's your next big goal or big dream. What are you see for? Not only your company and Your Business but also your ministry. Because we'll I'll say after twenty plus years in the ministry you're really you've always been an impact but this is also making a major impact. So what's your next. Step your next bill. So the ultimate goal is we want to produce a feature length animated film that's faith-based that reveals Christ nice to the world in a way that would be fairly unexpected the large passion. We have why we call it our company I see it productions. Is I believe that. Unfortunately Christianity has a negative connotation these days in a lot of people's minds. And that's because of a lot of You know bad experience. Or they're listening to social media or politics or or whatever and they don't really understand who Christ is and what he did for us and coming at them with a Christian message. That is kind of in your face more often. They'll turn you tune you out before you even get a chance to share with them and so we want to develop media. That has an Aha moment and I see it moment somewhere within the media that allows them to go wait a minute. That's who cries deuce. Okay that's not at all my expected suspected or what I was taught or what I believe and so our vision goal is to produce media. That does that. Our goal is to build an animation company over there in Zimbabwe. Utilizing you guys and I would love to have two three four hundred people over there that are able to to just knock out incredible products that are making a difference in the lives. The people so short term goals probably twenty five to thirty this year and then long term goals would be within two or three years having having enough employees that are handling and managing smaller projects. But then being able to turn. And maybe you ll is whole company to do a feature film well. Hey Man I love that and we've already got your space reserved on the outside of the building and says I see production problem at all. Well Mike I truly appreciate it a thing. I do want to say that he is able to see. The potential in everybody got through the ministry he even elevated me in the church. I became the director of the potty patrol. That in that's how Mike Saumur the best and he said No. We're not moving you from this spot because you are the best for the patrol so how took that opportunity take pride and a still. It's super part of my ministry rack and all the business skills you learn from that you've you've parlayed into a very successful us life without you wouldn't be here without her sure But no Mike you. You've been an impact on on so many through your twenty five plus plus years of Church Ministry and I know that God has placed this on your heart as your dream and your vision and we're praying for you.

I don't have a mini cooper but we were we were just driving perfectly quiet and then all of a sudden she said I'm sorry and I could cry now blight tears. I've never cried so profusely my entire life and we pulled pulled over on the side of the road. You don't know how long we embrace what the police came first off talking about racism right. Thank God I was in the passenger seat. Thank God she was she was crying too. You know I mean just think about that. Contact to people in the car crying like one point two in the morning or whatever could've been taken totally different but I own a passenger seat and please come up is everything okay and she's like yeah whatever so they will I cry hi like straight up crazy tears. I mean never before have felt that and I m emotional person but I'm sorry that I'm not sorry because I'm not GonNa just for anybody. My Love is deep. You felt what I don't get sick of that. So I cried cried but is that I felt closure CA. I felt that you know I'm I don't care. I was a damn good relationship and I was like when we broke up when I broke up with her. I didn't work for ten ten months like I didn't leave my house except for one day a week to get groceries. I I grew my hair out like my hair was long. I didn't leave my house. I got super skinny any I think people came to visit me that Tim month frame literally I I was a prisoner of like his never said this right when we broke up by legit one hundred percent for ten months was in my apartment and I was financially blessed and so I just pay my bills came out and I just my TV was not on our wake up going to live room. You sit on the couch and just be broke up with her on the phone yeah br I broke up with her. I think that she can we have said this but I think that she wanted me to go out with her. Okay but I'm gonNA take the blame. Would you say I broke up with her. On my own volition. for the reason I spoke of earlier which were we weren't having sex five months on time and there was absolutely zero communication and she said I was perfect perfect and I'm like I'm not privy so she was really good. I'm like well what the Hell is a problem and she couldn't answer so I kind of I gave her ultimate which is a terrible thing to do. Learn that lesson as well L. and so when we broke up I I was at Malley lower. She's the only woman in a decade as my mom decade. I'm that'd be thirty. Two hasn't no one I've known since I was twenty years old and so for whoever relation next Umemoto I take that very seriously my sister and my grandma as well and my father too and and so yeah I didn't I literally was growing up my hair and my hair was nappy. I was like grizzly faced didn't work when I went back to. When I went back to the workforce I after the interview I ran outside and through because I haven't been around people like you personnel downright but I haven't been around people so I was was that I was like isolated from life? I was basically a prisoner Ramon depression. How concerned were the Queen's during this time so I techs right I'm not I don't this is something that I'm working? This is one of my goals in life just to be a better calling. I got my mom a few days ago. I was like mom.

The Bachelor is not the less last but like now it's like we all get it if if this was aired and we had the fans listening to this before they decided like they'd be getting very angry emails more than they are right now again.

I think our listeners will relate with and want to hear I want to do it. You're you're on your way. The question to ask was hey you had to you. During that there was a child that was lost Austin. You've talked about on the BACHELORETTE and you're GonNa talk about now why thank you economic over I just came from a deployment and I was stationed at Raf over in England and it was the day after the fourth of July two thousand thirteen and I I I went out that night to the club and I felt that this lady and at like thirty minutes talking talking to her she said hey you speak to my daughter but come to find out I had already gotten her daughter's phone number and so yeah fellas get them off the first yep up against for you and the young lady and I we scheduled a date and I no call no show on a date not good for you know and it's funny because I remember writing I wrote a letter to God per se and I said I want the hard road up. I wrote a poem. That's what it was and it was the no one but God why because I was twenty five and I had been acting as if I was a rock star you know from a young child's about twenty years now as I'm just done with that I want the sweet things. He's in life white you know put your head on my chest. In let's just chill out you know you face and you'd ice cream and let's start seven tells so and so after I know caller no children a day you know we started talking or whatever and then I was supposed to go how supposedly the military and go back to America and she's very very prideful and she is extremely independent and I remember putting unlike the money in a four ticket inside of her shoe and she says she wanted to go to America with me. I didn't ask her too because that's like huge to say Hey ben leave your life income living in Texas right and so she came with me we have two separate apartments just because we've only known each other for three months and she moved to America with me and I wanted to Lake Lake Mary this woman so I felt that we need to be living together. Even though I wanNA marry her but I wanted to do what I felt was the right way and so then like there are some call tech school. LS Airman Leadership School I went to that and we moved in together and everything's beautiful blissful. I you got a damn cat cats sacrificing sumo sumo cinnamon toast you end up loving the cat. Oh he the cat sumo his name. He loves me more than her desk. I wish you can call in right now. Shield so the truth. His name is Simone Cinnamon Toast. Yes he is certain and yes I love him. Oh and we had we became pregnant and on the show are told the truth. I told Hanna that I wasn't there for the miscarriage but people kind of went off on me but I have I. I didn't get to elaborate because quite honestly that's tweet me my but I'll say so my ex and I had a miscarriage and and I ain't going to some excellent had a miscarriage I am I really try to keeping promises so Ashley keeping a promise which Yama keep you peeking Pinky promise that you keep the only pink problems. I've never kept in my entire thirty one years as of life. It's my ex's MOM when senator some Jalapeno poppers from a store I didn't pick them up and I still remember that day. That was like eight years ago almost and my best friend who lives in England he was coming to Houston. We lived in San Antonio at the time and I asked my ex fellows message right here the give it to you. I asked my ex baby. Can I go to Houston Day and she said Yes fellas when your lady say yes. She means no and I didn't know that lesson at the time and so I left I literally was gone for. Maybe maybe thirty hours he came back and I wasn't there for and that's what I mean by that way. I'm doing this show made. It seem like you weren't therefore her like emotionally. No she'll tell you I was there for emotionally like I wasn't there currently physically in that moment we lost. We lost our CIA. I I was therefore when we lost our job but like doing the grieving process which is a very serious thing and I was gone left on Saturday came back on a Sunday now aw yeah Mike I know we're going to have listeners that really it's like this is a hundred from a supporters perspective like a year perspective and then also from a woman care the child. What was the grieving process like if you if you don't mind trying to explain it so that people out there listening to go yet there there with me so my kind of shaking? I think that for one agreement process differ for everyone doesn't matter your the gender. I think it's different for everyone from my ex. I feel that everyone knows I want children. Children like my ultimate goal in life is to build my future children on treehouse more than money more than anything what I WANNA do. That's that's for Damn sure happen and she knew that and she don't WanNa have children but then we got together she said I'll be a great father and so she wanted to have kids and I think that the biggest thing was has her not. She didn't feel like she was a woman. You know because I'm like shaking. The big thing was. She didn't feel like she was good enough for me because she felt as if she's going to have children and I want to tell her and everyone else out there that your man loves you like if you have a miscarriage I love you like it's it's okay right just communicate and my ex really didn't communicate that to me at all but also I was ignorant guy guys we are at the time I wasn't experiencing relationships and so I didn't really know how to communicate with her either. I literally became a perfect gentleman like it's annoying. When you become perfect gentleman it really is knowing and that's what I did because I didn't know what else to do? I mean I'm asking my mom her mom my grandma my sister you know what to do and just in a work but what she told me two and a half years later and that's when I cry I broke up with her after like maybe eleven months after months months after yeah. Let's before you get there. I was GonNa say what are the what was like. Between the time at the miscarriage happened in the end was that was that affected acted. It effected the no one hundred percent so I think I communications obese. I don't let's let's disagree. It's okay right. Let me I remember telling my ex I said let's dilly feeling so my ex. It's not spoken since the show Eric she watched the show and it was a very hard time. When the episode aired I called her knows except at home so y'all know this fish so definitely reach out to her and it was a sad moment for us and basically what she told Emme was? She didn't know how to she. She not talk to me because she felt like she had failed almost and I just looked at it was like everything that you go through. I just wanted to be there with you. I don't care if you went through the toughest in the world. I WANNA be right there with you and I think so many people we know that in a relationship when someone loves you. I don't care what it is. I don't care I remember joking about this. My friends that I found love if you achieve I mean I'm still Levy. I don't fall in love easily so I'm still in love you now. You'll has been not cheat on me but I'm still in love you and so I think that was a a big learning lesson for us for me because I need to know how to make a good environment for you to feel that comfortable right I think for her. It needs to be as she can be open and communicate with me and know that I'm GonNa love her even more because we we went through a traumatic experience together in comparison to going through a traumatic experience separately but the exact same experience in so and that's kind of what happened we live in. We stayed in two separate rooms for awhile I sleep naked only rule in my house you kill me and when sleeve negative not to suffer and so we will we will be sleeping in bay but like we went. I'M GONNA cut a photo. You know we went holy. Howdy Jerry I sound so corny but it's true we wouldn't hold each other? We want to have sex and it wasn't because of religion. It wasn't because of upstanding from from sexy I think she just felt as if could happen again that she could become pregnant again even though she was on birth control and it was just a lot of mental things going on and I've learned so much and I love her so much for help me grow in that area and I actually took classes since I've been single legit WanNa be phenomenal has been and I've taken classes on how to communicate because communication is different than effective communication right I can say been I think you're tall. That's terrible example just communication in different ineffective communication and while I was on the Bachelorette I wasn't there for her going back to that for like thirty hours Max during that grieving period and Shakiness don't happen to me Phil that's happened. I broke up with her because communication communication was void and there'll be months where we didn't have sex and I don't cheat refuse to cheat and I desire communication desired sex quite honestly so you came back doc. Thanks for share that by the way for us here but for the people listening you've just totally opened your heart better. You cry yeah I know is this like so emotional. So the thing is that you get off the show you call her. You guys talk this through and you said you cried wants your life when she said she was sorry. What led your that Nas off? Cry Three towns right. You've quit three times in your whole life this morning. I saw out of way in this morning. Getting weapons opens with my grandma so as an adult you've cried three times.

"I think you're I was telling a second. I think I was saying behind your back and I'm glad it's a negative. I think that it's just simply what we gravitate towards naturally. I don't think there's nothing wrong with that. I am so in love with the people that are open to different things right and this goes so far beyond the bachelor but at the same time we damn should've had about a black bachelor and I'm not saying I never should've been me. I think I'm a phenomenal said yesterday and my Momma tell me and I know to be true and I don't. I think that ABC is wrong for not choosing me truly don't feel that way. I think they chose the right person for what they want it right and I will say this to my home. Is I never say this publicly. I said that I felt that. If I were to be the bachelor the ratings would go down a little bit but in the next year they will go up even more because they would have captured new audience with me and he didn't have their own audience as well yeah and so I don't I'm not gonNA. I'M GONNA disagree with you but I don't think it's on the fans do that. I think as media rerun America yeah. I think that the stands were more supportive Mike Than Peter I really do. I think this came down to college versus the popular vote I it is a perfect similarly for the if we if we did a nationwide popular vote which I'm still four times confused no it wouldn't. I don't think it would have been tyler in your mind for sexiest man alive sure yeah okay but I think that if it were just between you and Peter her for Bachelor I think he would have won the popular vote but you know the the has they have a story line that they want to focus on and I'm not mad matted. Oh yeah but I do want to go back to just the racist thing for just a second let's talk about. I think it's insane. How people people can like take me criticizing someone in which we criticize Ben? It's part of the podcast it would be really really boring. If we were just positive all the time we criticize so many contestants but I- criticize Mike and all the sudden it's different than when I criticized Kaelin or it's different than what I criticize Peter Being Vanilla but then it's then it's racist when it's towards Mike support what I was trying to make was like how can you possibly jump to that conclusion until you guys know that I'm friends Teixeira and Rachel and the sane man yeah so so again. I think that goes back to that's the easiest thing to do right. If we're all white in this room we will go to something else. 'cause I'm the one black guy in his room. That's something easy to to talk awkward and like. I said I don't pass. I'm hoping here not a racist. I'm not saying that you all right but that some easy speak on it's easy something easy to go to what you said. Earlier was the follower account yeah and Rachel for Your. I haven't seen Rachel Person Brian actually she's. She's a cutie like schrader Yeah Rachel. She's really cutie and I I am sally. Sadly I noticed that I'm the highest I the most followers from Bachelor nation as far as the blackmail significantly lower than people that have had as much screen time pretty crazy. Yeah I think yeah I'm sorry mom find one point that I would love to have you guys discuss and and this is to it's essentially defend Ashley. Even Tyler spoke about that yesterday. When I was in New York with him? He touted as sexy by far right on your he was. We're talking about something. He was like racism you know he's he has two point one million. The average black contestant probably has what one hundred yeah if that if that takes you farther than a lot of cash over half a million but one thing I wanted to talk about is that just to astronaut. I think the third must've happened very close order so one thing is when Ashley criticized you or gave her opinion opinion of you. I actually think it would have been more of a disservice if you did not give your opinion because Mike is Black like if you censor your thoughts it's like everyone on the show should be loved or criticized for their whatever their behavior is on the show. If you're acting unlike ascalon you're an ass clown which he never has been. You're not asking. Did you call our Luke Luke work. Yeah we call that all day long aw so therefore I'm this no I understand Liu so therefore give it to her now people. I don't know her pets guys. Well given your got because you WanNa have a show. Hey I know you guys. You know what I mean. It's it's just insane that you'd blame the color of somebody's skin that here's the thing Mike thanksgiving. Thanks thanks for talking about. We have a lot to talk about with you. lesson also if there were more black representation as far as the stick out this want us to go out and I wanNA talk to you about that coming up after this break because we're blazoned neutrals ambassador nation year by year by year now and I think somebody like you is going to be like be a game changer. Jj if it's on the show or outside of it for a lot of people but before we do that. Let's take one break. We'll come back with Mike Johnson in-depth jared. My place is almost done. We can't wait to show you guys on instagram how it is turned out and how we've made my I place my old place. Now are home together we did with the help of crate and barrel in their private registry events what you do oh is you go to a crate and barrel store and they have one of their staff members carrot and carry out take you around the store and help you register Mr for items that you really need and help you form your taste and what is going to work in your space because when you walk in there without out help I'll tell you you're going to want to register for everything and it is.

"This is ben initially. I almost famous this in-depth. It's been so long since we learned that intro video for this and I can't tell you how much I love. This is honestly one of my favorite times times of any season where we do in depth episodes also loved the way that your tone is like so much more like stopped and when we are I'm yeah I like in-depth because one of a little nasal right now I'm a little nasal way got called in and my buddy has kids and we shared like the the same cup and I know I got sick from Hey guys today the background using my pitcher actually yes photo was terrible. If you hear the man's voice it's sensual. I'd say it's a great guy. His name is Mike Johnson. We've promised that we'd have in-depth episode sewed. You've asked for and worry we now have it Mike Johnson if you don't know who he is well you're not a fan of the show oh but he's a thirty one year old air force veteran from San Antonio who now works as a financial portfolio manager contestant from season fifteen of the Bachelorette with Hannah Brown around describes himself as a city boy who likes get down and dirty allegedly alleged that wasn't your first. Qna I guess while allegedly is speaking to Demi Levada before we speak to Mike Johnson. We gotTA pause here to say we're live from the planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. ooh What does Mike Johnson. Welcome to the PODCAST August. Thank you I want to there is a little bit of an elephant in the room and I think it is best to get it started right because here's the thing I want to preface right now by saying my co host thinks you are amazing she she let me this is this is my zone she. He is a huge. She's a huge fan of you. She loves you but there had been in just like nor dislike. This world happens there was trolls trolls that came out and said Hey Ashley doesn't like Mike and it kind of blew up into this thing. It offended you. Mike for some of the things Ashley has said in the past and I think before we get started aren't we can really trust each other here in this circle. We have to talk about it right. So if I fall backwards and don't look you got me I got you actually de Yeah from your perspective. What was said what was the context of what was said and what happened to make this whole thing is something I think that well first off? If I think when we do these like podcast all the recaps I do. I do have to criticize you know if I see something. Sometimes I have to like not criticize but it I can't just be butterflies and rainbows with every single thing that happens on the show or whether it's in real life what job Oh to be rainbows and butterflies that's true. He's the one that always takes the easy route and like he's like sure they said this but this and I'm like well sometimes be a little little bit harder. I was harder on Kaelin too and like I did the same thing in the podcast. I was like look I didn't have the burst the best first impression of her and then and I met her in real life well. I met her real life couple times but it was when we actually broke the silence that I was like This is a completely different person than I thought she was. I think with Mike I saw you on the show and you're like the warmest friendliest person and in the thirty seconds and it was like thirty seconds that I met you at the wedding. I felt like somebody introduced me to you is like the Bachelor beat reporter and I was like there were like this is actually a whole bunch of recap. She doesn't that and then I said yeah and everybody is loving you like literally. Nobody can think about things to say debut and the first thing he said to me. I don't care about any of that and I felt like I was kinda discredited. I felt like I was personally. I took a little bit of offense to that because it was almost like you're putting down what I do. I'm going off of what you're saying because I remember that I'm not saying that you're wrong but just going off. What what you're saying yeah? That's something I don't care if if someone were to say to me hey everyone thinks you're amazing. that's me saying I don't care that. Let's have a conversation so I think he took that completely out of context yeah okay and that's probably very true very true. What is it that you felt like you had an issue with me about now one? I think we are making a bigger than I think we are too. I do think it has to be talked about because he brought up every once in a while Ofek. I'M GONNA talk about watching the Bachelorette. I'm coming at you. Damn Shaima come to you and so from what people had told me my. DM's from what I thank you I think the same I think something crazy happened. I think that people like literally took me being like I didn't get the greatest first impression Russian and then people really flip hard core. I was like I met him for thirty seconds thirty seconds yeah exactly my point so from what you had said from this article I just read while sitting over there my Sharma facts right. You say you know I'll be. It was only like thirty seconds that we spoke but you didn't the best impression. He won't be the Bachelor Co stuff. We wouldn't be the bachelor some article just respite quote fair cool and my issue issue is at dam sure calling me. I just talked to me because I'm pretty damn good. Oh I know I'm GONNA learn this this weekend because we're going to have a lot more time and then I probably should never never even spoken on a first impression your mind I mean my first impression of being was damn. He's tall. He's going to do this guy so awkward. I WanNa talk to this guy. He's got big arms. Hey can you move out of the way for both I mean I never watched the show prior. Go for one that my happiest time while being on Bachelor Paradise was at the wedding yeah for Chris and Crystal and because I felt free and just was just loving life right within a cluster F it was and the more I thought about it the more I was like I was super overwhelmed. I feel like everybody was overwhelmed because we had no. Why do we are going into and it was not the appropriate time to make a judgment? I gotta ask you something though Yes. I want to hear your opinion on this. Here's a scenario was plano right. We've we've we've talked walk through this. We understand miscommunication. We understand that you know. Tabloids and rumors are GONNA get started. It's going to get blown up right. Here's where maybe I want you to help me understand understand. This is a deep topic of smiles coming out now to paint a picture for you. Ashley says something like Hey. Mike might not be the next bachelor. I didn't get a good first impression. Nothing about you. Personally really I mean yeah. You can ask her. Actually why do you think that and then all of a sudden here's what happens in this were hurt. She's called a racist. What do we what do you do with that like we go from? Hey maybe this person just isn't going to be the next bachelor to all of a sudden. She's a racist. That's a big jump an incredibly offensive too. I think both sides so I heard I heard I mean. I thought that was absolutely insane. How people would go from that to you? Oh I want to hear what he though because it. This isn't a one off thing I mean it's going to happen and later on the podcast. I WANNA talk about not being chosen next bachelor and how you feel about that and what what the show's going to do and and what is your response but this is it. We've talked to Rachel Lindsay about this before you are. You're blazing a trail and bachelor nation one that should be blaze ace but why then is this the conclusion to every criticism big or small so you have a couple of points one. I did see that people hit me on my dealings about that. I never knew of you in the past. Not saying nothing negative about you. Just have you know no baseball baseball right and I heard about that in response also because I don't know of Youtube Vida towards me yeah so people can say things but how much you the way you treated me at that point time. You intrigue me a racist at all. I'm saying on your if if you are. I don't think that you are of course you are so people have say that. I don't know your past right the way I feel about. What you said been quite honestly? It shouldn't even be in the question the reason I feel like it isn't questions because there is it extremely underrepresented underrepresented people of color within his nation. That's just facts right and so therefore when I'm in a room with like twenty beautiful people I'm the only black that guy in the room that may come up more times than if it were if we were twenty black guys and then you had the only why that comes up more so because that's it's an easy thing to talk about. Oh bins the only why right uh-huh maybe that maybe the case may not be the case but then also in batch nation. I don't know the demographics of how everything works out but there I mean I would like to see that one day yeah in regards to I'm just GonNa talk on ours being the bachelor because of my race I one hundred percent will say that yes peter is half Cuban. He's white right. I'm GonNa sit and and I think his family is beautiful but there's that mean going around. I mean there's a picture going around with all Bachelors Right. I'll twenty four bachelor's yeah. They could've made me more white right yeah. Hey let's be honest really white right fluorescent looking at this President Obama Llama prisoner woman if there was a diverse cast that represented America as far as the bachelor. I don't think racism would ever be in question but since all twenty four batteries have been predominantly white then I feel like it is fair thing to bring up. Let's dig one step deeper then because I know actually wants to follow up here a little bit mark no no. I'm glad you did not like there's no apology because I want to step one step deeper then here's the question Mike so Rachel Lindsay. I was one of the Best Bachelorettes we've ever had just as is in terms of season of drama all that stuff she has about half the followers of most Bachelorette so calling it out well so my question to you Mike is if we look at the list and we look at the pictures and we say yeah that needs as the change then. How does it change when nobody nobody comes out for support? There's a problem there way beyond the show so my point is yes. Ask The show could do something to fix that right could name you the bachelor but even beyond the show the viewers the viewers don't respond which makes me go. There's there's a bigger issue here than what any of US WANNA point out. There's three things you hit on one like I said back demographics. I think that people gravitate gravitate toward they are used to right so I've asked tons of times. I was an air force being received and I said to my wife friends. Can you imagine the only way guy in an airport. Can you imagine a bit. Can you imagine that actually that's happening to me tons of time talking about thousands of people in an airport and I'm the the only black guy right if I was if I saw another black person gravitate towards that person I is that racist or is that just relate ability ability right and and so therefore I'm not gonNA call our fans at all if the majority of batch nation fans are Caucasian so therefore for the ones that may not be open into it. They're going to gravitate to what's natural for them and so I always think about the airport scenario because most people in here probably not felt that I'll call you all right. It's a crazy thing. There's twenty people in the room by the way that's a serious talking about your black yeah right so so yeah so like for the most part like we're looking at a room. There's people watching these people sit around that scenario sitting in here planet Hollywood and it's like if I were to go to if the Bachelor Ambassador Inbound Paradise was not on ABC on bt obvious right now right you may not be..

"We just had it's your girlfriend right. We never confirmed this Keelan. Keelan is my girlfriend. Yes see on your chest the other night during the reunion is that for her of course I wore bullets with the letter C on it. Signify my affinity entity former girlfriend Zena and I have a Bolo tie thing I actually texted. I got to Bolo ties and I texted a picture of both of them to ban and said Hey. Which one should I wear. He said I should've worn the other. Why get while you were the other one. Now I get it but I like them. Both but Dean and I love bullet is we actually dean was my date to the American accord more music awards last year and we went together and we both will were Bolo ties. We thought it was going to be cool and it was yeah I love the way that in just like walked over to the couch and he doesn't have any shoes on. It's like I don't remember the last time I saw shoes on shoes. I saw you take off your shoes and your socks the second you walk into around. I haven't worn underwear in a long time no. I don't think that's a huge. This is a big problem with me. Though under this is a massive issue with me. I hate this because he plays games with me. Every time around Dean tells me to do something different and I start doing it okay. Let's start the beginning. He wanted to listen. Can I tell a story. You should tell the story but I want you to tell honestly because it really upsets me. I've had massive medical issues. She's because of it giving Tallis's places. Nobody should have a callous okay. I'm going to tell her story. Although you are better storyteller I'm going to tell the story because it's about you and I it might be uncomfortable for you to tell so ben actually all three of US Bachelor Winter Games. We all grew even closer than we were before the three best friends that anyone could have really you guys. It's like everybody came there. We've made friends and then we're like. We're GONNA be friends forever and then like a couple of months later three buses. Every bachelor show is like your super preclude everyone right after the show and then the main course whatever that's that's the important thing here on that show. Ben Somehow somehow obviously. I was like announcing from the rooftops. I don't wear underwear. Ben took that to heart and he goes. I'm going to try not wearing underwear for a little bit too. There's not really reason to it. I feel like it's Kinda constricting. I don't like the fact that there's extra clothes on my body I actually do you think that there's a conspiracy that the laundry detergent companies created underwear so that we would have to wash more clothes so they could sell more detergent and you all know that. Dean hates detergent. Oh it's the worst. I don't use dryer sheets anymore because yes that's and that's really good getting utterance on your clothes. Then get absorbed into your skin is really this. Ask Tell the story anyway. Ben Adopts that mentality. He's GonNa try not worrying onto a little bit which I was super supportive of. I love hearing that I think his sperm counts are really appreciative of a two password a couple months. It's February we go on a trip to Honduras for humanity and hope which is fantastic organization that he heads up with his best friend Riley. They do an amazing job if you haven't checked it out b-share check it out. It was one of the best experiences of my life on the very last day and again this is coming from me who I'm not very religious person. Ben Obviously cold space very close to him despite my like for the despite all that I still had an amazing time so it doesn't matter whether you're religious or not you will still get a benefit out of it anyways on the very last day one of the gentleman that was with us was a pastor was his name again create a Ah Chad Chad so Chad was there and he goes hey. It's our last day in Honduras. We've all had such a great trip. I'm going to go about I'll baptize some of you guys on this last day if you're interested in like three or four people of the twelve that were there with us. We're like yes I would love. That sounds great. Ben Has Your Baptism story from a child like you. Didn't you never really been baptized. I was in a y one point right yeah and so it was like this is a great opportunity for me to get baptized. I would love it. Nothing warm surrounded by some of my great friends with an organization and I love. I love my family. Yes right your mom and dad goes up to get outside and he'd see like stops in his tracks and he goes. I'm not wearing any underwear and then he comes up to me and he goes deny. Just couldn't get baptized. Because of have you should stop wearing underwear you had pants on in a two hour bus ride and everybody was like stripping down until like sports bras and like like shorts and like like men had like boxers on so like because you can't wear clothes it's hot and it's wet and it's a long way home and this is like the most meaningful moment because I was thinking that he went on that tangent because he didn't want to talk about his relationship. Relationship is really something in the close story a month later. I text Dean Dean. I haven't been wearing underwear now for months. It hasn't been a terrible experience words from me but I have one question for you. How in the world do you work out without underworld. It's crushing me like it's embarrassing at times. It hurts at times. It's not funny goes dude. I always wear under when I worked at the compression leg yeah so anyways deans really messed up my life for the better. It's a great story. We just a piece of everything I love about what our friendship has become. Here's just a little more callous in places you don't. WanNa be exactly desert talked about real stuff destroy Israel but I WANNA be. I WanNa talk about why you went from like I'm not going to be in a relationship and I'm just GonNa like gallivant in my van for awhile that's where I am in my life to deciding that you really you liked Ceylan enough to not do that anymore or you're when you're doing it but to incorporate her in that lifestyle those that were thing for me to do yeah not not weird but you you're beautiful and you're you're just like the change it was like. What was it about her. Because you did say that one point you're like it's GonNa take someone like Super Special for me to want to change that and she was obviously that super special special so what is it about her yeah. I guess that's that's a good question. I haven't really been asked I left the show and I spent a little bit of time apart from her for the first time since having literally forty eight hours you went to the Grand Canyon right but even that even just like the time that you're sequestered your hotel room to then catching the flight to then turning back to the San Diego where I left for the Grand Canyon there are moments where I was like missing her and wanted to hang out with her and there were times where I would look over expecting to see your. I didn't see her so it was it's hard to explain like obviously went there without the intention of leaving in a relationship but then. I just met someone that really liked and I tried like try to keep convincing myself that I didn't didn't want to be in a relationship didn't want to be in a relationship and then when I eventually fulfilled that and left not in a relationship I like kept then. Why did I convince myself that. I didn't want something that clearly really. I like him a better person for being in which is the relationship you know so that's. Kinda went back you. You always amaze me really because of the depth at which you think through things not and that's not like fully complements. Let me finish here like you really do think through things and you desire. You're debt like you desire to go deep and all of a sudden. It feels like you hit the trampoline in one of bounce back up as quickly as possible to where I can get like. There's like moments. Where were you go deep and it's it's like I'm here with you and I'm sitting in this with you because you're wise you're intelligent. You're thoughtful and I know you're non-judgmental and then all of a sudden jump back up to a level of shallowness. That's like let's let's. Let's see some weird. Let's jump out of a plane. Nothing playing shallow but like it just feels like let's change the subject as quick as possible. Why like where does that. Come from because what you just you said. There is incredibly deep in insanely courageous for you but it had to come with his hesitancy right. No you're right. I do that a lot. I think it's just like deflecting flecked ability defense mechanism. I guess like I'm willing to I'm willing to give you my vulnerable parts but then I'm afraid to receive your response and so that's why it just jump into something really fast all say something really quick really deep. You know obviously depending on who's listening and then before. I give them a chance to respond. It'd be like but let me real quick and let me make this weird vis changes it. I don't I don't know I don't really I'm not not very empathetic. So when people try to our but like yes you are walking like open up to other people sometimes but then like when other people put up to me. I sometimes struggle with knowing how to feel relaxed. I don't know how to say that back and I feel like I'm not very good at that either. It's like I'm feeling for you but I can't like take what I'm feeling and put it into words. I always feel like I'm GonNa let people down by not showing support and a lot of those situations and so it's like. I don't need necessarily need support so I can. I can like unload some stuff but then I don't want to let that person down by not being able to receive it properly really. Have you seen with Ceylan a change to where you want to support like you want to support her yeah. I think that our relationship is great because we are able to lean each other in those types of situations where like like you know. She encourages me to do a lot of things that I wouldn't be doing without her I would I would think that she would say the same thing about me. I know I overheard some some things when you were saying housing as a boyfriend and she said Oh my gosh she's the worst boyfriend of all time so you know I'm not gonna go ahead and put any words in her mouth but I do like to think that we challenge each other to the point where we are both growing as individuals from the relationship which is great. Weren't you phone or instagram. Why are we doing an interview together right now. It's all weird to me. Hey Ashley as a fun game for you we we're going to play the game which we already asked. Kaelin her questions and he got her answers as well. So are you ready to see how well you know your girlfriend..
"mike johnson" Discussed on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast
"Kaelin why why why did honestly I asked I self we need to point out the Dean's not next to her right now because deans on a new thing a kick where he's not going to do any interviews with Kaelin. He's is GonNa make their relationships really hard to get to for no other reason other than the fact that he thinks six months from now somebody might say they've never done a co interview together may May. Let's pay a ton of money. Let's let's dig in here. Okay first off We've talked about your time parrot paradise to an extent that I think you're probably even sick of. I think it's important for us to focus on anything more than where you sit right now now so let's skip ahead with all that in mind to the fact that now you are with one of our favorite people one of my favorite people people but one of the Weirdest Ah yes he sweeps you off your feet and I wanna pause here to to really ask you and I started out by asking why but I really want to ask how oh like. How did this all happen to where you're on a beach in paradise. There's beautiful people all around Dean leaves. He comes back and the thing we don't see is what's going on with that mind of yours to say this guy right here. He's in how I remember so I remember him coming down and I was just completely shocked and I was sitting next to connor who I had been dating and Connor was the one who was initially interested in meeting but dean and I hit it off and then he left and I was heartbroken crushed and still thinking about him in the back of my head and then he comes back and I was like what what are you doing here and I remember sitting down with one of my friends and I was like I'm watching this viewer and viewers are like screaming at me. They're like pit. Connor pitcock house. They were so wrong. I was like I can't hit my heart. I knew from the second game down like my heart was it was I know and you couldn't even help your smile. I love your smile was so like I really can't right now. I have to be you like girl and like really take like protect my heart but like you could not hide it. I love it and let me decide note here. My mom is super awkward in front of Cameras Amorous Dean. Are you listening to this so my mom is super awkward in front of cameras so at our wedding like you have to say something to make her laugh like we usually like quote a movie like My. Dad Jose Rainman rainman like in like in like a Dustin Hoffman voice the weirdest things you can think of and then but at the wedding leading the thing that made my mom's smile pictures was say Dean no gas all. I think that's sweet right. Also she just it's like she has. She has a crush on everyone. Does I mean everyone does even guys do that's what's so special about him is that jared just as much of a crush on and Dina's Ben as me as Kaelin Kaelin probably has ever so he comes down those stairs here. Kalem and you're a woman who sought after Paradise your relationship. What was it about like okay. What was it during that time between windy left ending came back like hide your heart ever left him because here's the thing I've only met you once and it was at the wedding and I didn't know this. I don't if you remember this but the very first thing I said would just can I showed up to the wedding was hey. Where's Dean and I asked you randomly didn't have any clue and you go. He left eft last night. which was my birthday but that's a lot that's the first and last time? I've seen that was it so I watched back and I had a clue. Do you guys have gotten back together. I had heard a rumor. I had no clue how wet I had no idea how he came back why you said yes because the last time I saw your in tears at a wedding after he left yes the That wedding was brutal. I cried a lot and I don't no no it. It was as much as I wanted it to be connor and I wanted I wanted to basically replace deny had with someone else in that didn't work and the second he walked down. I was like Yep. He tried to like hold my hand and I was like no and I'm like I'm GonNa pretend like I'm mad at you and I am. You have to milk it for a little while. Yeah Yeah here it. He has to say away and here. We are now. We guys are cute. You ever think about what your kids is will look like I scare him with marriage and children all the time. There's nothing more than what is this reaction. When you start talking about marriage and children it was like all right. I'm out but dean would be the best data of all time one will be ready for it but he has to be. I know probably fifty but he's okay Killin Ceylan. Let's backtrack a little bit here because we just saw paradise. We just saw you leave paradise. it was a roller coaster of sorts of the whole thing before the show ever happens for. Are you as soon as you hit our. TV screen became an instant like fan favorite. You became known in every House that watch the bachelor at the time before for the show even happened. Would you've ever expected your life would be where it is today. In in what it looked like back then compared to now. Oh Gosh it's so different so I was living being in North Carolina and I love North Carolina but always knew like I wanted to live in a bigger city and just bill anything in Charlotte North Carolina's banking and I just wasn't very happy happy there so from the show said he was like everyone who goes on our show is unhappy with their life in just some smaller large way and so I was just unhappy because my life and that's why I went on the show and funny enough like a year and a couple months ago idea and dean and here I am dating him now a couple of months ago go you saw him on TV and thought he was Q. I can't I can't do this. Is this is why he's doing it so let's let's explain a little bit here. Yes you saw on TV you. Dm Him what so he was. I followed him and he was traveling through Asia and I was like Oh my gosh you're going on vacation. I literally just went on and TDM's back in their inbox uh-huh and this story. I don't even know maybe July June early summer spring of last year before you were officials before yeah before I was cast and I just always thought he was attractive and it's just it's crazy to think like how how we've come full circle now we've been dating for three months and he makes me happy most of the time I don't WanNa leave this yet though because it's a big deal like a really cute thing so I messaged my girlfriend now just going in serum so that's we met as I found her picture at a sporting event that I wasn't and I said Hey you're a top post location. I would I would love to meet you if you're single in if you're interested interested and now we've been dating ever since this instagram thing is is really awesome to me and I don't want to just leave here because you spotted dean. He deems back. was there anything further that happened or is it just kind of like hey. I'm not going to go on the show. Hopefully one day beat him. We were meeting. We were supposed to meet for coffee and if you know Dan you know that he bails on everything so we build on our coffee date and we DM D- probably at the end of my season after that briefly and then he deemed me when I was in Morocco and so there is like a slight thing like a flirting a little bit like it was like yeah we met once in real life and he he's portrayed a little bit shorter on television and then I met him in person. I was like Oh my gosh. She's so much taller than I thought he'd be. You and I was stunned by is in his just so charming and yeah so really one of a kind yeah. I think people can understand it somewhat through TV but when you see when you meet him in real life you're like I've never met another specimen like you. Yes I'm like what is it. We we just went to two together and these girls on the beach were like just obsessed with judging me for being with animals like. I know I have no makeup on but like whatever and they asked that he went to go. Take photos an ocean and they're like will you take a photo of with your camera and I was like I'm right here. uh-huh kidding. That's awesome. Can we talk about this. One thing that we didn't talk about last time. Kayla was on the podcast. It's super embarrassing towards me. She one time watch me competing paget. Who did I did Miss Virginia. I was is doing a preliminary for Miss Miss Virginia and this was right before news this this was right before I was cast on the bachelor officially yeah. I I think I had maybe not gone to casting weekend yet but I had my flight settlers and I like I remembered asking girls exit. It's like if I win this preliminary. Should I do this or the bachelor. What's the like. What does she made the right choice. Budgets are great and I've learned so much from them but I don't know the bachelor just so fun like a once in a lifetime experience with like your best friends and now here's what they gotta do is. We got to sit in a room like this. At the I heart music festival at the planet Hollywood and say like life is really awesome like we're with our friends and and we're having fun and we're going to see a great event and we're talking about life like this doesn't happen without a really crazy show that we've all been able to be a part of and I think that's that's awesome here. Okay I have one follow quite early. Dean and then we're done with Dean okay. Does he still bail once. You're in a relationship ooh does he. I don't think so I think he's pretty I think my expectations are low. Okay okay okay. I like this. It's a great boyfriend okay Libya. Let's talk honestly here okay. He's not the best communicator he's getting better at. It sounds like the Kinda and a guy that we actually have a game for. We have one hundred percent of the time. The newlywed game the game a very very quick fashion. It could be three questions each okay. We're going to match them up. At the end. We asked the room please for a second what was wasn't Dean's last big purchase on his credit card. ooh parachute a parachute. Take Care Yeah if he's not looking at your instagram profile and apparently he doesn't think that you guys should follow each other uh-huh instagram. Is he creeping on ooh. That's a good one probably photographers accounts announcer like travel accounts but he does creep on like everyone from the bachelor to which is very broad but he's always on his phone. He's never not on his phone is not the most annoying it's so nice. You're the same way it drives me crazy. I I'm like you. I put it down on it that much. No it's like. I know what I'm GonNa do right now as he pulled his the following Kaelin so I have something on Dean girlfriend. I'M GONNA call his girlfriend. Sorry okay well. This is a really really obvious one I think..

"Toll on you and so you asked earlier about me and my personality have I let things go to my head. I tried to be even killers always because I am super grateful to be sitting here with you right now and I know that tomorrow it'd be gone so therefore my day ones I wanna make sure that they know that I love them. Care about them and that's the strongest thing that you can have is this your family and friends that are near and dear to you understand that everyone goes through something.

Even though I know you weren't a huge fan of that but you are a part of this bachelor family you're part of this franchise and I think that you're a really positive figure within it and so I I just WanNa thank you so much for coming on the podcast and I'm also excited because I feel like this is a question. I wanted to ask you to feel like a lot of people haven't had the opportunity to know you and you've really gone deep on this podcast and I think one of the things people would say about why you wouldn't make a bachelor is because you didn't open up origo. You didn't cry in certain instances and for all those people out there who said that take I hope you're listening to this podcast because you have opened up in a way and put yourself out. There have been very vulnerable very honest and really shown who you are and so I I mean like to all the haters out there by I want to speak on. La that thank thank you for this ridiculous. when I'M NOT GONNA call her name said I'm not going to be a good contender for the bachelor because I wasn't vulnerable enough and and ordinary cry for one where I come from when we talk about tears we let those tears out but I'm not GonNa let series out for the most frivolous things I I do cry. I am an emotional person. I am in touch with my emotional side but I'm not gonNa cry for something that you've seen fifteen other news Crawford Graf war and so that's just ridiculous to me. I I am extremely you. Ask Ask anybody that know me. Oh my God all needs to ask what's up and I'll tell you this. There are plenty of people who cry on that show and there's nothing behind those tears. It needs nothing. It doesn't mean that they'd be a goodly okay and I'm not gonNA name any names. Okay okay all right. I want to say thank you so much for coming on the podcast really do appreciate it. It was a long time coming and I wish you all the best.

"Use coupon code be H H hey welcome back to bachelor happy hour and I'm talking to Mike Johnson and Mike we're just kinda. Go straight to it. WE'RE GONNA get into it at this point. We know that you weren't chosen to be the next bachelor. I'm still not over it but I wanNA know how you feel about it. So were you in talks to be the next bachelor. One hundred percent talks to be the next bachelor. I think a a lot of people wanNA know because people are upset right. You're not you're not the bachelor. People are rioting. I'm leading it but a lot of people don't even think that you were considered to be the bathroom so that's why I wanted to lead off with that question and pied anything else consider to be the Bachelorette because I was trying to be respectful of the crew Abacha world and I don't want to speak about it. Even when I went on TV I thought that was being extremely respectful in a gentleman of me to the bachelor world and Peter in it. I don't think Peter did those interviews and so he didn't have to go through that I one hundred percent one to be the bachelor reasons being because one two and find a wife to it was bigger than me and I wanted to represent for all people of Color and then also talking about people of color they need to have Asian Bachelor and you have Indian Bachelor and you have other people outside is black and white and so I want to speak on that as well but I did audition with the Bachelor and I one hundred percent did wants to be the bachelor. I think that's important for people to know to This isn't a an instance. Where are you offering? You turned it down. You wanted it and you didn't get it. So how did you feel when you found out you were not chosen to be the bachelor I found out in the trailers you know before you go on Bachelor in Paradise Reunion and I knew it all right now my head yes. I wanted to be the bachelor. Yes auditioned to be a bachelor. I went in there with the right. Intentions of WANNA find wanted to be true to myself. You might have seen Iraqi and come back. I had a list a word document of the type of woman. I wanted what I was scared. I wasn't scared of and I think ultimately it just came down to. They chose the right person for what they want and there's nothing wrong with that at all. When I I found out I was? I'm not gonNA I was sad. I was annoyed when I very first found out but then I think by the end of the night I wasn't annoyed no more because I was appreciative you've and thankful that they told me no right into their because now I can focus on myself and I'm just blessed because I know my wife and my Queen Mike this is a really really big of you and it makes me still want you to be the bachelor even more. I'm more of set this podcast uh-huh telling you don't you edit this out. I have upset and I just I. I hadn't even met you. You know. Most people don't know is that we have a mutual friend. My chimenti from college is one of your best friends so I could speak to your character outside of what I saw on the show and now I'm sitting here in front of you and I'm just I'm might shed a tear. I'm so upset that you're not the bachelor and this is what I have to say and I'll ask you this too because you've just been so open and honest honest and really respectful and how you're handling this whole process. This is nothing against Peter Peter on the show and a lot of times people will confuse. You said we had Peter on the show. Peter seems lovely straight lined vanilla but lovely and I it's not that I don't I think he'll make a great bachelor. I think that you know he'll he's very been higgins. Ask I think they'll surround him with an entertaining cast two masters his learn I I again so I'm saying all that to say it is not a knock against nothing against Peter About Peter being bastard. Do you think a good one. I think Peter is a look and deal with his five o'clock shadow. He has a a fun Super Fun job. His family's amazing his little brother. I know personally he's dope kid and when I say cost him only thirty one. I think I would have been more entertaining. I said it and I'M GONNA stick by my word yeah. I think you'd be entertaining to wait. What Oh oh he said? Peter has a as a fun job. I don't think he's had that job after the Bachelor I disagree. Peter is in love with being a pilot no no. I don't think it's up to him. Oh you know what I mean. I'm sure he'd get another job or something. I'm just saying his own plane he might maybe they'll let them take a sabbatical. I don't know it's hard. I think that's why a lot of times you see people on the show who have jobs or lack thereof of jobs because it's hard to ask your employer for time off so I'm not saying that as a knock appear I'm just saying you. It's going to be hard for him to be able to do. Both is what I'm saying. Now's a financial advisor. So therefore I have a boss can do say it again. you really answered my questions very well. I appreciate that I was trying to get messier anything but you were very matter of fact and I think it is what it is. I will ask you this are you. Are you disappointed with the lack of diversity on the show so that's one of the things I spoke about to the producers if I were to be the bachelor and I said that I wanted to be representative of America as far as the women that or be on the show if I were to be cast as a bachelor like I also feel that more people of color and I know Peter mom is of Latin descent but come on won't Peter's White all right. Let's be honest and so I'm not talking about things advantage. I'm talking about. I WANNA fool on Indian guy or full on Asian girl for some reason as I like Asian girls. I like Sydney She Beijing. I didn't know that about myself until oil paired is about all experience you love women. It's what you feel. I think that's great. Do you think that not getting the Bachelor is the best thing you never had right now about say right now 'cause I'm focused on his in the moment and so I know that if I were to be the bachelor it will come a lot more scrutiny into my personal life into my family's personal life into my sister and things of that nature and maybe as God's website is not the right time for you to be an spotlight and the whole point of going on the show is a fire person and so I wanna make sure that that's the president's I wanted to find my wife. I wonder if I'm Queen and so if I'm not on the Bachelor you know I've been blessed to be opened up to a plethora of people that know my face and so I may the woman still yeah. Let's talk about that. Let's talk about God's plan and the women that you've Been Open Up to meet Aka Demi Levato. Oh we gotta talk about it. Okay because Demi Levato is a fan of the show and I have not seen her this involved ever so spill the T. Swansea. I want to see you said to drake lines by the way you say why I'm upset. I'm a fan of a drake civility on amy okay. I'll ask you more pointed questions because I always answer. I would always answer questions. You've gotta ask them. Have you met yes and I have met in person. How many times we met we met more than once on? Let me just tell you who is not going to be on Peter Season Demi levato okay. None of those girls can even stand in the same room with Demi Levato so you you are already winning. Let me just tell you this Mike Johnson and give them a name. No no minimum okay Mike Johnson. How is she? I think she's amazing as and she's incredibly humble when she and her and I are together or have my God I'm saying is that don't say anything. That's going to mess up the relationship ship. 'cause I no not at all. I'm extremely respectful when denial together it's laughter and we talk about real shit like she's as a down to Earth woman and I respect you so much and she's really humbled really cool really fun down to Earth person and she's from Texas from sex her body too so that's cool okay. You sound well acquainted. It's my job to see through this. I will say that I have met Demi Lovato as she did not have this reaction to me. She's just be like. I don't even know if she knew I was on the bachelor. She took a picture with me and walked. He's an extremely sweet woman. No no she seems really sweet and Is there anything else that maybe you want to tell us. What is the status of your relationship with Demi? Demi Lovato must satisfy the relation with me and I are that we are two people exploring each other. I like it. I like it so what's next for you. My Johnson was next for me so I am really big into and I really care about self love and insecurities and so I'm I am working on something right now to help raise people's self love in lower their insecurities through a media platform. I love this and I'm GonNa tell you why this is so necessary. Sorry so we just did a podcast with Blake and it went so deep it had to be two parts and what I loved about that podcast is he was so open conformable. I mean you met Blake you saw the drama but he talked about the darker side of being in batter nation which a lot of people don't hit him up about it and and I really think that you guys should team up together and really help people through this because everybody wants to see the war on TV and you know people are Schilling or they're going to all these events but you know that lasts for most people six months and then the whole new crop of Bashar contestants come in and you're lucky if you can sustain it longer than that and and when you don't it's the dark side of things or if you have a bad experience and it plays out on a public platform like blake sted. It's the darker side of things I'm excited to hear that you're doing something positive and I think it can really reach and help a lot of people are completely. I've had family members and friends commit suicide and you know become hurt really bad by mental health and the people that are in the public eye that were once in the star now they're down at the bottom and so plays a a real.

"All you have to do is use the code bachelor. That's Code B. A. C. H. E. L. O. are are you guys. I'm back talking to the Mike Mike Johnson and we've been talking about his time on the Bachelorette and how he got here and just as journey through this whole Bachelorette journey but one question I wanna ask you because the way Hannah season ended. We've never seen anything like it before and I don't WanNa get too into it because it's we've talked about it so much but I I am curious as to I ask you this. Are you call with jet. Yes okay so I'm not going to get a lot out of you know you probably will say. Did you see see this coming. Oh I'm just because I can be cool so we're not going to be one not honest about the situation right so no none of us knew that jet had I someone back home like at all it was I mean when you see my eyes right now. I was like I was flabbergasted by had no idea I new Hanover GonNa choose jet though even for the moment I got even furthermore when I got home because I know Ellen Ellen and she was playing a game with her who she likes and she chose. What's his name from a star is born Bradley Cooper? She chose Henchoz Bradley Cooper. She likes guys that look like they haven't showered in a few days and that's jet and so it looks like he has a shower or does he smell like head. Just smells good. He smells good rough around the edges like that. I know it's just his style okay whereas tight jeans with the booze you know the nice little leather jacket thing got a little beer going in style. Where's The rain I mean I'm not? I'm not yeah he was out to me. I'm not I know. None of us knew that jade had a woman back home. seems the Great Gatsby. He's Hilarious is super funny. He's hilarious things. You don't get to see I mean we had jet on the show and of course it was more of a serious conversation so so we didn't get to talk to him about that but it's interesting to know. There's this other side of him now. Although it's sad to say that you will not make history being currently being the first black bachelor sorry Oh no we'll get into that but I want to say you did make history because to my knowledge and again I didn't watch the show before I was on it. You're the first contestant to where a do rag in. It all we have to talk about that do ranking analyst go stood up in class when I said this is the show ever seen on the show. I'm always be me always be one hundred to myself of they always have you know we're at home all day in a mansion. Why am I going to do very well? I'm only going to have on like y'all want us to be the reality TV so I'm going to show you reality. I appreciate it because I am and what you guys don't know little behind the scenes information. We're not allowed to wear sunglasses. We aren't allowed to wear hats. That's when I love to wear things really on our heads. So when I saw that you were able to wear the do rag I said wait a estate Mike you know I couldn't do this podcast without talking about the REC. I almost posted hosted on social media when it happened but I didn't it was it was great. I was a fan of it I Love Monterey I WANNA to get an paradise but before I get there. I do want to ask you a question because I felt like this was a question that was posed to me and it's sad to say I don't get a lot of opportunities -tunities to talk with other people in the franchise about it just because there aren't a lot of people in the franchise that look like us but being a person of color in this franchise. Do you fill like Oh. I guess I should ask you. What did it feel like to be a person of color in this franchise? Did you always feel that similar to the way you said when you went to the audition you were the only black male there Do you feel like your race was an issue on Hannah season. Do you feel like it's something that you had to talk about dot constantly. I'm very curious so when I found out there's a southern white girl girl from Alabama as Bachelorette House I wo- sent home now you. I know you WANNA say home down sucks but when Hanan I kissed for the first time as okay you know she might like the big lips and then from there it will be in the back of my mind. I will say you know could Hennessy herself bringing African American guy home to our parents and and now I know one hundred percent her parents love and adore me and so I respect them as well but that was something that was my mind not going to deny it. You know I was concerned about that but as far as the cast member goes the cast members go. I was like I don't really care. I didn't care about none of them. In that regard is cared about him Anna how she would feel and that sounds like I'm trying to be a good guy. That's just a truth out of I don't care about none of the guys and how they felt Mark Hanna and if she didn't if she could see pass rates than I was cool with that no I I I'm very curious and I love to talk about it mainly because I can but when I was on the Bachelor I didn't feel that way either when I got the first impression rose to be frank. I didn't know what that was because I didn't I didn't I didn't watch the show like that before but there were girls that came to me that said Oh a black person has never received the first impression rose so those things were in my mind when I made it as far as I did. I was told a black person's never made it this far so I didn't really feel it until until those monumental and of course being the Bachelor S I'm just very curious as to how it was for you I let's get into paradise. What the Hell did you decide to go to paradise? I still was single and still wanted to be in a relationship so water. Hell not so they twist your arm. You finally decide hi to go you day car. When you first arrived right? I do see how day card and you decide. It's take Kaelin it was so America doesn't see that I was it was a toss up between Sydney. Kaelin and Katie was my second option of who I wanted Nagourney Day with date even between Sydney Kaelin and then Katie I chose Kaelin overseas because Sydney is quiet and I felt like at the end of the day police have a fun time okay. Where did you guys have a good time? We had a great time to your date. Did you know that it wasn't going to go anywhere after that. I wanted to tell the Sydney Sydney even before going on the day Kaylin. I told me hey I'm going to stay with her but I still want to talk to you and so as soon as I got back next day I was talking talking to senior. I wanted to be with Sydney and she I think day with Dina saying day yeah so it worked out perfect what happened to Sydney. I mean you guys seem to be having fun and playful Long Beach. We really didn't get the end of your stories. What have I not first off to you? That's disrespectful but first off to the show like Bro. Come on you. GotTa like show what happened to the end of Sydney and yeah weird so tell us what happened. I broke doc it off with Sydney. I just felt as if I thought a couple of things one I feel like she didn't find me sexually attractive to our our connection just was not there whatsoever I think we both were trying and I think that's seen as a diamond when a diamond I mean that she is absolutely spectacular and very very hard to crack and that's what I mean by diamond and so all ruby as well but the diamond wasn't for me and so a broken things off with her and then I went to the to the wedding okay so it was before the wedding gosh we really didn't see we're all no so I mean you can kind of set the time line for us but I I'm glad you cleared that up up because I remember watching thinking what happened to Mike in Sydney. They just all of a sudden they just weren't that was weird. I broke it off with Sydney. It was it was respectful respectful and both sides whose mutual and I wanted a wedding and that's what I don't get to see. I was IMA zone. I was my Johnson to a T. Mike Dow's this was set represents San Antonio. I was just happy as can be. I just so just thrilled to be there. I literally forgot I was wearing a microphone I forgot was cameras was on I was having a wonderful time free. I was free yeah. I spoke to Angela. Do I spoke to Bibiana and I just had a wonderful time. It was first of all I love going to weddings because the reception and could you get the dancing. I just have a fun signed. Do the Bunny Hobby that listen when people ask me about my wedding. I'm like let me say about the reception wedding. I had a fantastic pence has to time at Christmas wedding shelter them. They're beautiful birds and then I went on a date with Angela so I've got a question for or you can answer for you. What do you say and I'm asking you this because people said it to me to? What do you say to the critics that say you don't like to date black women yeah that's crazy I would say literally my ex-girlfriend prior to being on America's phases of black women I come from a black woman who's strong beautiful my sister and my grandmother don't make me go off on your first off? I was on a show that the league was a white the girl so therefore who cares Mommy's always telling me follow your heart and then my aunts you know my aunts. They're the ones that want to date a black woman and then articles they she found what's up and that's just me being transparent but my homeboys always and my sister and my grandma always told me to follow my heart and was near and dear to me the crazy thing is if I were a data white girl and back to around from in Dallas and we certain places we will be looked at in Texas that is true but also true is. I don't care I absolutely love my black winning. When I auditioned to be the Bachelor I had a Microsoft Word spreadsheet that I printed out of course she did financial advisor? We're like that and I had three different categories of women and the first was the black woman that I am attracted to and I'm not going to later names and the second the second one was like mixed chicks or whatever learn or other category Pacific Islander Typing Auditorium at third chick the third category is the white girls and I mean I'm a man that has lived around the world living in Europe for five years and I love all people and I am attracted to who try the two. I have always said our marry a black woman but I'm not gonNA hold my breath. I I love you being honest about this and I ask you because again as as preface whole conversation I can talk to you about things that I can't really talk to every guest that comes through here because we have shared experiences and I got the same criticism because you come on TV and you're on the season of someone who's white as the Bachelorette ed. I have a whole slew of of men to choose from and the one I ended up with is Colombian so people automatically think you don't like your your last race and you are Lazarus people automatically think you don't like your own race and you know how it is your judge by America and then you just by Black America and they're the ones and they're the ones that usually lever come at you for not liking your own race and it's so I love you said my girlfriend prior to the show was black..

"It was a great group of guys outside of Luke and Hannah was is is Google has held. I love it She speaks her mind. I love everything about her. In that regard it was boring like when you're not gonNA date is heliborne imagine it with a bunch of dudes. I what did y'all do for fun on your off days because you're right. What a Lotta people don't see is that you see the dates right as as a viewer? UC Two two hours of filming. We've been filming an entire week and you only get out of the House on rose ceremonies or if you have a date so there's a lot of downtime you're in these great countries these beautiful cities you never been in before and you don't really get to go out and said so. What did y'all do for fun then? I'll tell you what we did so in which are the awed. You're probably more than we did. I just appre drink. do stupid stuff. Push ups pull ups on that stuff. That's definitely now overdid around pool talk to each other do a lot of interviews. There's a lot of that you know the crazy thing. Is You do all these What is it called a guy talk or girl talk season none of that crap aired and now I'm like why are you got me doing all these taff Italian I tyler seen idea great one megaton of Garrett and Hannah because I live thirty minutes from each it was Eddie? They should have made the credit. Although the shirts seen that y'all did at the piano was amazing. I'm glad that that made the credits and I could tell the camaraderie that you guys had on the season. who were you close to? I'm close a Lotta guys like mention. Tyler heated homey dust in earlier today. He's he's Army Dylan's my little brother Connor those are the ones that I hang out with and talk to the most Matteo. I wanted to go see him in Atlanta. Hey I'm pretty cool when everybody is the infamous group Chat Poppin. 'cause I know you gotTa grew and I'm the one that offer my android. Oh Yeah Yeah you're one of those. It's a I mean honestly they should kick you out very annoying. GNAWING with someone goes green. I might get the eleven because all my Mike. Can you please get iphone. Am I listen to the fans yeah. You need to pay attention to AH okay on your one on one. I WanNa talk about that because I said this earlier. We felt like we didn't see a lot aww you were you really nervous did we. Did we miss out on some conversation. I know you express hey. I'm nervous but it just seemed like a lot of nervous energy. Nah I definitely wasn't nervous. It was more of when I watched the Bachelorette back all I did was smile and I have so much more than a smile. I like really converse with people have great conversation. I feel I think the show just wanted me to these smile. They don't want you to look like the angry black man and they dancer Dame portrayed portray ally so I'm appreciative. Even though I definitely was going off on some people that deserve to share their good deny nine good Hannah definitely had conversations we there was no pauses in our dates at all and both are was great conversation throughout his fluid. They just want to show me smile for some reason well. It's better than a frown right no death. I'm frowning takes more. It takes more muscles to frown smile exactly so therefore the smile. I'm afraid I ever I'm definitely a you can say bitch. I've definitely have a resting bitch face low show uh-huh. Everybody knows that but I try to work on smiling because people tell me that I look angry so it's nice that even okay maybe they didn't show your full personality but at least they showed you smiling Meiling full personality. I'm extremely loud and hilarious and I wanNA scream right now. Just out of pure excitement enjoy that's. It's the entry into the podcast with you. Okay so you get sent home. We all saw all that and it was really hard to watch because you were like trust to impress y'all had had the day date before you poured your heart out to Hanna. Hannah and I remember even in the items you're saying I see her as my wife. Did you see it coming at all. No zero percent one one hundred percent that was going to be sent home because I I asked because I want you to expand on that. I asked because when I got sent home I knew it I I it was actually hugging sound and like hugging audio and the cameraman before the rose ceremony saying this was it like I knew I felt it in my bones and so I I guess I assume other people have that same experience so I'm curious where you're coming from Lewis Juice you ready for the Jews time. Can we like I bet so no I one hundred percent thought that Hannah was going to give me a rose would michelle doubt but for those crazy crazy extreme fanatics the suit I was exact same that I got out of the Limo in we I didn't know and for me myself that was like symbolism and I did that prior to knowing that none of the producers of that and so so from my end because I wanted to make sure and this is real. I don't want to take this no way nor anybody else hearing this. I haven't uh-huh woman home to a mom in forever and has been one woman in over a decade and I take that very seriously whether on TV or not being on TV and I wasn't sure if I was ready to take home that's fair and I one hundred percent thought I was gonNA say. I thought she was GonNa give me rose but I wasn't sure if I wanted to mom this. This is the beautiful Hannah was say hi Hamilton place but he is by the way to solve that oh no she yeah so. I thought that I was GonNa say I thought he was rose but for me myself and I shot the beyond say. I thought we would need to have a longer conversation for me to decide for myself because what people don't realize that this is a two way street I just reggie as you were the Bachelorette but your husband now he was a contestant but at the same time he had an opportunity leave as well and obviously he wanted you as you wanted wanted him and so for me. I'll that like that. That's why I was never nervous is a two way street from me. My heart has feelings well. I think it's interesting that you say and in and thank you for being honest and sharing that. I think it's fair fair for you to say you know if you were ready to bring her home because that's the other side of it. People don't talk about you know you watch this play. How how you lose some? Everybody wants a rose every single week but it is such a pivotal time when you have to take the lead to your home because it's a reality check. You're in this bubble this bachelor but will you are caught up in his feelings in these emotions because you have to talk about him all Damn Day every day and then you're GonNa step outside of that bubble and take them home where you know we talked about this earlier your family your friends are going to check you and bring Baxter reality and that's a scary thought and so. I'm glad that you speak on that because I think a lot of people need to realize how nerve racking it is for the person to accept the rose to bring them. I'm home you gotTa make sure that you're ready for that and I think over the uneven watch Colton season but there was a girl who did that on Colton season. She just felt like their relationship had progressed enough for her to bring him home. That's a serious thing so I like the set that he's been ice yeah. Nothing is Hannah definitely like her lighter but I just want to make sure that my family as well I think shows how much you liked her. You weren't just going to it wasn't a game to you and you're going to take her yeah. You weren't going to set her up for failure. You wanted it to be right and that shows your sincerity another good characteristic of the bachelor of bats. I'm just telling Y'all good characteristic all right Mike. I have so many more questions for you. We're going to take a quick break. I'm GonNa let you have a breather because I feel like I've been grilling you for a moment and we're gonna come right back rage. I gotta say we live in such an amazing time right now. allie seriously I couldn't agree with you more. We can even unlock our phones by just looking at them. Just the other day I it was ordering diapers for my son Riley just by talking into a speaker in my living room I mean that's kind of insane. It is the one thing that hasn't changed as coloring our hair where I know right our options have always been going to the salon and spending a ton of time and money there or going to the store and grabbing one of those box kits at the drug store now. There's a new way for you to do it. You can do it with Madison Reed and I have to tell you allie. It took a strong woman to shake up the hair coloring rural and and you know how I like strong women and you absolutely I love amy era. I mean she really changed things up with Madison Reed in what I love so much does that it's actually a company that she named after her daughter. Madison Reed.

US House Hears Debate on Reparations on Slavery
"Debate on Capitol Hill over paying reparations to descendants of slaves. Congressman Mike Johnson opposed the fair distribution of reparations would be nearly impossible once one considers the complexity of the American struggle to abolish slavery, just consider this. Okay. There are tens of millions of today's non African Americans are descended from people who arrived in the country, of course, after slavery ended and therefore they can't be held responsible for its legacy. Mortensen, billions are descended from people in both the north and south who didn't own slaves, or who were descended from white people who fought in the civil war on the union side, indeed only a small percentage of the total.

"mike johnson" Discussed on The Jim Ross Report
"He had a great night really talented, dude. But I enjoy the show. I talked to Mike Johnson about the difference between the presentation of inex- takeover inex- teen and the main roster Ron smackdown. I think it's a we know that there's are ticked differences in how the show shot at central center. But there's a mindset also is an I look at this way. Like each of these teams each of these units run different offense. They have different head coaches. They have different philosophy. And I really enjoy the inex- takeover shows how they're written the logic that they use just really good. I thought Johnny Gargano had a marvelous night on Saturday. But that does not mean, I didn't wasn't. I I was impressed with every match on inex- t I didn't. There was not a stinker in a bunch and the show was not overbooked. But then everybody got plenty of time. Time to tell their story organically could ex hail could enjoy the process. It was because tell us find out that. Okay. I got yet twenty minutes, and they get ready to go out. And all of a sudden now they've got a fifteen minutes. They don't try to change anything. Tune in larger many of them were faster. So they try to cram more shit in a small bag instead of, you know, restructuring their match rethinking it. But we've got we've got the match memorize we've been working on for days. That's one of your problems. There's well. But man, I I love the show the feel of great. I love clean finishes. It doesn't hurt to lose. If you know how to work if you lost every week. Are you gotta gimmick. You know, like Zack Ryder and his tag team partner. Curt Hawkins, that's a different deal. The we had the same thing. Midsouth many many years ago with Mike boy. Set the same thing. W W F had one time with when they featured berry Horowitz on a big losing streak. And I remember call net matching voice over session. And I scream ING Horowitz wins Horowitz wins. No off of a baseball call. So. But I think that they're they have winners and losers, and they the they the matches are are competitive athletic, if it's real athleticism if it's in a real athletic event, then why doesn't hurt to lose. If you lose the right way. And you don't lose every time that your television. I don't get that. I like the fact that you know, you're gonna see a winner loser. So how's it going to go? It has more intrigued than match because I don't wanna plan on. Well, this probably be a disqualification this'll be account. That's garbage. That's true garbage. That means nothing. So good night for the cats the men and the women there to inex- takeover. I like Shane of bazars. Evolution reagan. Tomasa Chanda is is excellent big time. I hope the W W E creative gets Alastair black and what he what he can represent. What it can mean? He's really talented, dude. And he's got a very unique rugged look while the tattoos long hair central Tetra, I knocking it under saying that if you can't judge a book by its cover many times, and certainly out of black would fit in that category. He's very very talented trust me. And I venture to say that guys like him that don't. The creative treatment that they feel. They need will not have problems awning work. Elsewhere. The wrestling business in general is too hot for good talents to find work. That's says my take on it. So good show all the way around I fan. The war raiders called Mercer dues matches when they were new Japan, and I was working for access TV and allow the few Erakat's goodguys worth a lot on any roster. Good dudes. So good night on Saturday night. I finally got home on Sunday afternoon. Believe it or not. And boy was I ready to get home..
