The show premiered in 2006 and ended in 2008, after Boykin had a child and stopped living with Dyrdek. The fan-favorite reality series showed the two in their day-to-day lives, filming such adventures as adopting a mini-horse and breaking Guinness world records.

Body politics and dating are very tricky because people have opinions on who should be dating whom, but most of these opinions are often built on myths and judgments they subscribe to — even though they’d be too embarrassed to say them out loud. For some people, “fat” is synonymous with “ugly,” — I’ve been called “fatandugly” before, almost as if it was one word. That a woman must be smaller than the man she's with. Why don’t we ever give big men a hard time for dating slender women? As a big girl, I work so hard to manage my body image issues and I work even harder not to let those issues ruin my relationships.
I’ve seen too many of my Plus-Size Princesses convince themselves that they’re not worthy of certain types of guys, when that’s just not true.
Before I met him, people warned me — both implicitly and outright — that because I opted to only date the men I found attractive (novel idea, right?
), that I was a "superficial fat chick." They said if a guy was attracted to me, I should be grateful! I kept my standards high started dating a Dwyane Wade look-a-like. What if their emotional connection and understanding of each other is breathtaking? These crazy myths will have us thinking we don’t "match” with certain people even if they’re interested in us — what does that even mean?
To some members of Bachelor Nation, the timing of the announcement of Rachel Lindsay’s casting as the 13th Bachelorette was bigger than the announcement itself: The current season isn’t over yet, meaning the show will continue to pretend she’s a contender for Nick Viall’s heart for the next couple weeks. And of course, Rachel’s casting as the romantic lead for the next iteration of the popular franchise is historic: Lindsay is a black woman.
But declaring Lindsay as the Bachelorette earlier than usual makes a lot of sense. As a recapper of the franchise, I’ve noticed and commented on the overwhelming whiteness of the reality dating show. Juan Pablo Galavis of season 18 was the only Bachelor of color; Jo Jo Fletcher, the most recent Bachelorette, has an Iranian mother, but her ethnicity was rarely discussed on the show.
Signs were promising when Lindsay caught Viall’s eye in the first episode and was given the First Impression rose, which is typically an indicator that the contestant will make it far on the show.
Recapping I’ve always found it more than easy to find fodder for jokes.
