It’s the episode six recap, coming straight to you from my laptop in The 6ix. This week’s episode can be encapsulated in one word: drama. Meghan and Brittany have now been solidified as sworn enemies, like Kane and Abel, David and Goliath, or Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian. Theirs is an epic blood feud routed in a deep suspicion in each other. But first, let’s start at the beginning of Group Date Number One. The episode’s first outing saw the girls learning Dominican dance.
This week, the rivalry of Brittany versus everyone else became something from a Taylor Swift song. There were plenty of recriminations, but it was never clear what exactly Brit’s crime was. As I write this recap, I’m prepared to be branded as a Brittany apologist. Admittedly, I have a habit of defending the villains, but that’s only because I do not always understand the popular definition of villainy on reality TV.
Here’s a salient question: At what point do we change this show’s name from Bachelor Canada to Bachelor Costa Rica? I do not mean to cast aspersions on this tropical paradise. Its beaches look divine, and it is obviously a very culturally vibrant country. I would love to go there myself someday; however, it is surprising that the Canadian version of this franchise has now spent three whole episodes there when only one was spent in Canada proper.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
