Georgia Love said: “I’m so excited to be hosting 10’s first reality TV podcast, The Reality Bite: Cocktails and Roses. I love The Bachelor and I love talking so it’s a perfect fit!
“I’ve been a Bachelor tragic since the very first season. I love the show, characters and stories that come from it and get so excited by the buzz it creates every year. I’m looking forward to take that office water cooler chat into the podcast booth with my friend and fellow presenter, Shura Taft.
“I’m also keen to delve deeper into each episode, lifting the curtain on certain aspects. Having been on The Bachelorette myself, there are certain parts I am privy to behind the scenes that I think other super fans will be interested to hear.”
Barry Du Bois said: “If you know me, you’ll know I’m a big fan of having a chat. I’ve always been passionate about sharing knowledge and learning from others and I think a podcast is a pretty great way to do that on a large scale. I hope that people who give Hammer it Home a listen will learn about all things homes and families and have a bit of a laugh with me along the way. I have some pretty amazing people lined up for the show. There’s a lot to be excited about.”
Network 10’s chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: “We know our shows have high-talk-ability and our talent are some of Australia’s most loved. It’s always been our strategy to own the conversation around our shows through our own channels and to give audiences more access to our talent across more platforms.
“The Reality Bite: Cocktails and Roses and Hammer it Home are must-listens for any Bachie or home design fan. They add to our diverse audio library on content and continue our momentum in the podcast space.”
