Strange as it may seem, we began this season a few months back with Clare Crawley and her initial group of guys in a mid-pandemic quarantine. Together, we watched a bachelorette switcheroo, more than a few guys being sent home (with some returning uninvited), a number of moments that made us laugh, more that made us cry, and some we just want to forget—and you stuck with us through it all.

"Let’s face it, for the majority of people, exercise isn’t always our first choice for filling our time. The most common excuse is, 'I just don’t have time.' With our current state of affairs, it’s important to do all we can to boost our immune systems and to stay active while sheltering at home—so there should be more time than ever to exercise. The key is to be intentional with our time...A great way to start is by engaging in at-home workouts." - Sarah Remmert '02
"I am in no way a food or grocery expert. My 'training' is limited to a ridiculous amount of time watching The Food Network and seven years at a 'very large' grocery store chain. That said, over the last couple of years, I’ve developed a system of sorts that has proven very effective for me and my roommate. Below are the five steps to budget-friendly grocery shopping and cooking." - Brian Dix '16
I guess you could say I’ve been a producer my entire life. When I wanted something done, I did whatever it took to make it happen. I love rules and organization and being in charge. When I was six, I petitioned my small town council to install a sidewalk through a field I took to get to the store. I didn’t get a sidewalk but they mowed me a path for 10 years. Little did I know it would lead to a career where someone paid me to be the bossy one. I call it leadership skills. - Aimee Tetreault '07
