'My publicist was like I'm sure you are not going to be so into this,' she said. 'And I was like, ''What? Why would you think that? You don't know me at all''.'
'I actually love The Bachelor. I haven't watched in about a year but we can blame my youngest child for that. But yeah, I have been fascinated by The Bachelor for a really long time so getting to go and be on set and have then take my phone away from me. It felt really cool,' Hilary said.
'Everything is top secret,' said Hilary of the show. 'There's maybe 75 producers running around with like ear things in but everything is just unfolding naturally.'
Hilary said she expected there to be a script but that there wasn't anything like that.

'It is a social experiment, maybe we are all in a simulation,' she said. ' I don't know. It was fascinating.'
Seth told her that he hasonly watched one season and that he 'got in way too deep.'
'It gets you, right,' said Hilary.

Seth told her that he got invested and then realized that he 'wasn't prepared to take this journey again.'
Hilary asked him if it was the Bachelor or the Bachelorette that he watched. Seth said he thought he watched a Bachelor season.
'Both equally as satisfying so you can't really go wrong,' said Hilary. 'It's just can you get in and can you stay there.'
Equally satisfying: 'Both equally as satisfying so you can't really go wrong,' said Hilary. 'It's just can you get in and can you stay there'
Seth said 'satisfying isn't a word I'd use.' Seth said he'd never done crack but if he did that he wouldn't say that it was 'very satisfying.' He said the show was addictive.
'I'm with you there,' said Hilary. 'I also have not used crack, but sometimes watching The Bachelor does feel that way.'
'Well, it seems we have our resolutions for next year,' Seth quipped.

Hilary also shared that since she last appeared on Seth's show four years ago that she has had two more children. Seth told her that he was fascinated about the skills that people picked up during the pandemic. Hilary told him that she took Zoom guitar lessons and she now knows how to play a few songs including the White Stripes song Seven Nation Army and some television theme songs.
Seth then asked her about her new show 'How I Met Your Father.' He asked if it was safe to say it was a sequel. She said yes. She said it was a completely original cast and that they weren't picking up where the other show How I Met Your Mother left off.
She said it really is it's own show and about 30-year-olds dating and what that looks like now.

'And being swipe-able, it's just completely stressful,' said Hilary. 'But also it's a love story between a group of friends'
Seth asked her about the show's narrator Kim Cattrall and if she had time to hang out with her. Hilary said she spent a little bit of time with her and that she was a 'beast' shooting 10 episodes in one day.
'She just showed up and kind of schooled us all,' said Hilary. 'I was like damn that's how you do it. She's such an icon.'

Hilary said she wasn't even supposed to be at work on the day Kim taped, but showed up anyway just to see her.
'Like, out of my way, where is Kim,' she said. She said there was something warm with Kim telling the story of her character Sophie. She said there was that comfort with seeing Kim and knowing that her character turned out okay.
'Also the show takes place in New York and when I think of Kim, I think of New York City,' said Hilary.

Seth said he was actually looking forward to having Hilary back in the city. She said what she was most looking forward to was having him invite her to go day drinking with him.
'Hilary a lot of people want to do day drinking and think it's fake or phony and you do shots of water, but this is a real thing,' Seth told her.
'I don't think you know me very well, Seth,' she said. 'Let's go. It's on.'
