About Us

About the Blog

Five years ago, we started a Bachelor fantasy league with our immediate circle of friends. More people heard and wanted in, so we created this blog. Now everyone can play along with us.

About Your BachFantasy Co-Founders

Becca and Jorie met as freshmen at Boston University. They share a deep and abiding love for snark, guacamole, Paul Rudd, and Beyonce’s choreography. Becca currently lives and works in digital marketing in New York City. She buys too much lipstick for the amount of time she spends re-watching “30 Rock” in her bed. Jorie lives and writes in Denver. She has recently become a helicopter parent to her dog.

Below, they’ve filled out the same questionnaire as the contestants this season.

Jorie

Age: 28
Occupation: Writer
Current city: Denver
Height: 5’6″
Tattoos: None
Can’t live without: The sweet, sweet combination of oxygen, argon, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide that allows life to flourish on our humble planet.
Biggest date fear: Getting murdered.

If you could have lunch with three people, living or dead, who would it be?
Melissa McCarthy, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and your mom

If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings?
Tell no one. Invest. Live strictly off the dividends. Shower my loved ones with outrageous gifts. Become an eccentric aunt who throws fabulous parties and writes a scandalous column for the society pages under a clever  nom de plume. Die alone in my large, dusty library and have no one notice for several days, until my beloved housemaid bumps into my corpse with the vacuum. Set my maid up with a cushy retirement.

If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be?
1000%, Oprah Winfrey. Any other answer to this question is a waste of everyone’s time.

Becca

Age: 28
Occupation: Digital Media Analyst
Current city: Brooklyn
Height: 5’10”
Tattoos: None
Can’t live without: My body systems working in concert with each other. Also, caffeine, probably.
Biggest date fear: A situation that results in Liam Neeson dramatically rescuing me from an Eastern European human trafficking ring.

If you could have lunch with three people, living or dead, who would it be?
Blue Ivy Carter, Tina Fey, and Jorie’s mom.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?
Hermione Granger—she kicks ass and takes names, SHE CAN DO MAGIC, and she slays mad dudes.

If you wanted to approach a man you’d never met before, how would you go about it?
First, I’d ruminate on it for 2–3 hours. While I think, the first guy would leave. Then I’d see another guy. My friend would tell me to go for it. I’d plead with her to talk to him for me. She’d say no. Finally, I’d offer him a snack from my purse, and maybe attempt a close up magic trick. Sixty percent of the time, it works every time.

    I am wondering if you will be having a blog for the Bachelorette starting up in May??

    • Jorie says:

      Hi Casey! We definitely will. Please stay tuned, because we’re going to be publishing a bunch of blog posts in the coming weeks about Andi’s season! Thanks for following along :)

  2. Meghan says:

    Post the new points for Episode #6 from June 23rd!

  3. neerali says:

    When will the scoring and all that be up for Chris’s season?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      The site is updated right now for Chris’s season and we’ll be doing an introductory post in the next couple of days. Stay tuned!

  4. Sam says:

    Are you going to post for Chris’s season starting Jan 5?

  5. I am wondering if either of you would be up for a dip in the lady pond?

  6. League planner says:

    Are you doing the Bachelorette in 2015? Also any programs or websites you recommend for tracking this point system in a fantasy league?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      We wouldn’t miss it for the world. We’re working on a better points system to track…check back with us soon!

  7. Lady Comish says:

    I’m also wondering if there will be any points system put up for the Double B’s?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      We’d never leave you hanging. Check back in the next couple days or so and we should have this season’s rules and regs posted!

  8. Courtney says:

    any updates on how to draft for next season? 2 separate draft teams based on each girl? Only choose from bios?

    Also do we know if the bachelorette is chosen after the first episode?

  9. Sue says:

    What if two girls draft the same team?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      We suggest having each person draft an additional player so you don’t have exactly identical teams.

  10. Cristin says:

    I am sure I’m just being an idiot, but I can’t seem to find the link for the excel template so I can tally the points for my team. Can someone tell me where it is? Thanks!

  11. shayna hamilton says:

    so our league is just starting….we always start a couple weeks in and are excited to try your method this season. I have a couple women that want to pick Nick because they see he will be in tomorrow’s episode. Will you be adding him to the list of men and giving his points total by chance? Thanks!

  12. Susan says:

    Will you be doing a fantasy thing for Bachelor in Paradise?

  13. Paige says:

  18. Anne Marie Flood says:

    Hi ladies. QUESTION: After a girl leaves the show do the points she accumulated for that week still count? I thought once her name was crossed out the points no longer counted…
    Thank you!

  19. bnosredna says:

    from what I can see here – it looks like becca’s age is incorrect. I think that’s very misleading and would like additional points for myself because of it. (Becca u can add those in for me right?)

  20. Jillian says:

    The new excel spread sheet will not work for me. I downloaded the new spreadsheet. I pasted the teams into league members. I individually inputted each of the contestant scores. Then I went over to the new spreadsheet column (teams post mid season draft) and put in all of the information. Now when I try to look at the scores passed episode 6 it will not tally the points. Could you please help me with this?

  21. Christin says:

    Will you be doing a blog for the bachelorette this may?

  22. Sierra LaFrance says:

    Hi! I just wanted to check in and see if you are doing this for Jojo’s Season?

    Thank you!

  23. Liz Kotenko says:

    Wondering the same thing..Are you doing Jojo’s season??

  24. Josh Borodin says:

    Hey, looking to get in touch with Becca and Jorie to ask about your experience starting up the blog. Let me know if we can connect.

  25. Steph says:

    Do you do a league for paradise coming up??? If not, do you know any site that does?? Thank you!

  26. Ashley Bates says:

    Sooooo. Getting ready for Nick’s season orr….? :)

  27. Sara says:

    Will this site be updated for Nicks season?

  28. They already leaked the final four. Wasted season.

  29. Crystal says:

    Is this going to be updated soon for Nick’s season?

  30. Ashley V. says:

    When are you going to post info for Nick’s season?

  31. NatalieD says:
