In this episode, to celebrate Katie Thurston’s promotion to the role of main character in this season of The Bachelorette, Erin joins us as we snake draft the female supporting characters who don’t get their due. We discuss which ladies are done dirty by the films they’re in, which supporting characters got a glow-up, and who’s superior in High School Musical: Gabriella or Sharpay.
