Joe Amabile, Natasha Parker & Tia Booth Reflect on 2021 and Discuss Their 2022 Resolutions
Happy New Year, Bachelor Nation!
“Click Bait with Bachelor Nation” co-hosts Joe Amabile, Natasha Parker, and Tia Booth are reflecting on this past year and looking ahead at 2022.
On this week’s podcast, the hosts went around and gave their 2021 a rating out of 10, starting with Natasha.
Natasha candidly said, “You guys saw a whole month of my life on TV and that went awful. But I will say, as far as growth, every year my growth surprises me. God be like, ‘Girl, you need to learn some stuff and I’m gonna teach you and show you in some way, somehow.’ So on the level of growth, this year was a 10/10 for sure.”
The Bachelor Nation star continued on, saying, “As far as family, friends, and things like that go, I’m so grateful and happy for all the people in my life. That was definitely great. This year was definitely a pendulum. I was doing really great in some areas, then it would swing and be like, ‘Girl, what?’ in others. I would say overall it’s maybe a 5, right in the middle. Things balanced each other out.”
Tia chimed in next and gave her year a 7/10. She said, “On a personal level with myself, it was better than a 7, but with family stuff like my dad, that really took a toll. There was a lot of grief and mourning in 2021, but other than that it was really good. I’m hoping that things improve next year. It’s out of my control.”
And it’s no secret that Joe had a great year and found the love of his life, his fiancée Serena Pitt. So he said, “I had a really good year. For my year, I want to give it a 10/10, but if I give it a 10/10 I can’t go up next year. I’m gonna go with a 9.5/10 and leave some room for growth next year.”
And speaking of next year, the co-hosts also shared their resolutions for 2022.
Tia kicked things off, saying, “I feel like I have the same resolutions every year about being more intentional, being more present, and communicating better. When I tell myself I’m going to have a resolution, I don’t stick to it. So I just stay away from resolutions and just hope one thing sticks. I tried to make a mood board last year on New Year’s Eve and I got all the stuff to make the vision board and never put anything on it. But the things I was going to put on it ended up happening anyway. Maybe I just manifested that? I’m so weird about resolutions because I put too much pressure on myself.”

She said she’s better at smaller goals, so her focus for 2022 is to respond to texts and messages right away rather than leaving them for later.
Natasha offered Tia some advice when it comes to sticking to resolutions, saying, “Your resolution shouldn’t stress you out. We are all a work in progress, period. We just are. There’s a quote, ‘If your dreams don’t scare you, you need bigger dreams,’ and that’s a different feeling than stressing you out.”
She continued, “I do encourage you to do the vision board! I’m a big believer in seeing and doing. I do one pretty much every year and freakishly it all happens. It’s so scary. I have it right by my bed and I see it every day. Sometimes people’s vision board is literally just two things. You have to be as intentional as you want.”
Sounds like we need to make a vision board! In case you’re wondering how Natasha does hers, she said she usually makes one board and sections it off into categories like family, business, relationships, etc.
But as for her resolution, Natasha has a specific goal in mind for 2022.
She said, “This year, what taught me most is trusting my instinct more. I’ve realized I’m a little too nice and also very spontaneous. So sometimes, my gut will be like, ‘Bitch, you know you shouldn’t do that. Go home. Don’t trust that.’ So just really trusting my first thought is my resolution. There’s a book called ‘Blink’ by Malcolm Gladwell that I read a long time ago and I need to pick it up again. It talks about how your very first thought is the thought, so go with it and trust it. You’re 9/10 going to go back to that original thought.”
Joe shared that he’s read that book and loved it. And he’s keeping it simple with his 2022 resolution.
Joe said, “I have to become more of a conservative spender. I can be very sporadic and need to hone back on my spending. That’s my personal New Year’s resolution.”
Natasha gave Joe the encouragement he needed, saying, “Because it’s so specific, you will do it. You’ve got this. You’re gonna save more money than you ever have next year, I know you will!”
Now that’s the kind of energy we need going into 2022!
