    I Give In, I'm Going To Watch "Listen To Your Heart"

    This is going to be a messy, wild ride.

    I've got to be honest, two months ago I wasn't sure I was going to watch Listen to Your Heart — aka The Bachelor spin-off — because watching 23 Jeds sounds miserable to me...

    ...but now that we're in quarantine and I have nothing better to do, I am *genuinely* looking forward to the premiere of the show. Oh how quickly isolation has changed my resistant ~tune~.

    Conspiring that the Bachelor higher ups had their hand in the corona virus so we have nothing else to do while being quarantined but to watch Listen to Your Heart https://t.co/TFSk03BRUQ
