The Real Pod: In which we replace Duncan with Shaka Shari from The Bachelor

Jane Yee, Alex Casey and FAMOUS BACHELORETTE SHARI FLAVALL gather around the oval table and talk about the latest happenings in New Zealand television and real life in New Zealand.

With Duncan rocking a flower crown with the best of them at Coachella, Alex and Jane are joined by Shari Flavall of The Bachelor NZ season two on The Real Pod this week. Over Easter eggs and rosé they deconstruct the latest episode of The Bachelor NZ which included Karena’s Dom Bowden bombshell, mystical rice planting and brown water rafting.

Shari also answers all your burning questions from behind Bachelor doors. How stir crazy do they get in the mansion? Why did she apply for the show? Who cooks the food? And what’s Naz really like? You’ll have to listen to find out…
