In this episode of The Three Tomatoes Happy Hour Podcast, Cheryl Benton, invited two relationship experts to delve into the intriguing world of the reality show, “The Golden Bachelor,” featuring the charismatic 72-year-old Gary Turner and 22 women in their 60s and 70s vying for his heart. This unique take on the traditional Bachelor formula has sparked conversations about love, aging, and the pursuit of lasting relationships, with over 7 million viewers tuning in.

To unravel the complexities of this golden quest for love are Beatty Cohan, a nationally recognized psychotherapist, sex therapist, author, and host of the Ask Beatty radio show; and Kailen Rosenberg, the Celebrity Love Architect, Relationship Expert, and Oprah’s ‘Love Ambassador,’ who recently launched My Love Design, a groundbreaking platform for finding real love and fostering a better world.



As we dive into the discussion, we explore how the concept of the Golden Bachelor challenges or reinforces societal stereotypes about aging and love. Kailen, drawing from her behind-the-scenes experience with reality shows, sheds light on the delicate balance between entertainment and reality, influencing the audience’s perception of love and relationships.

Beatty, as a relationship coach, shares her insights into red flags observed in the show about Gary, and the particularly disturbing information that has come out after the show aired about his truthfulness. Both she and Kailen question the authenticity of finding true love in the environment of a reality show. Kailen, the Love Architect, offers perspectives on the dynamics of finding love later in life compared to younger relationships.

We then scrutinize the conclusion of the show, where Gary proposes to Theresa after spending intimate nights with her and then another contestant, Leslie. Devastated by not being chosen, Leslie claims Gary made her whole, raising questions about the work Leslie needs to do around her own self-esteem and making herself whole.

Finally, we wrap up with advice for women disillusioned with finding love. Both Beatty and Kailen agree that real and lasting love is out there, and there are actually plenty of good men out there.  To connect with Beatty Cohan, visit her website at beattycohan.com, and explore My Love Design for more about Kailen and her innovative platform for finding love.

Tune in for a captivating exploration of the Golden Bachelor’s quest for love, the intricacies of relationships, and valuable insights from our esteemed guests.
