Allison Williams is many things: an acclaimed actress, known activist, the daughter of celebrated news anchor Brian Williams, an amazing example of a brunette successfully going platinum blonde … but what some may not know—and, oh, it’s major—is that Williams lives for her weekly dose of The Bachelor. In fact, when describing her free time, the actress paused to clarify that her active charity work happens when she’s “not watching The Bachelor”—the reality series is truly a pillar of Williams’s existence.
Naturally, Allison’s obsession is not without its fan theories. When it comes to bachelor Nick Viall, Williams is convinced she knows who he’s going to end up with.
“He’s been dating Vanessa—they’ve been in like a full relationship for months,” Williams told InStyle, “I feel like he and Vanessa are in like a real relationship and talking about like the hardest things to talk about in a couple. They’re definitely in a relationship. The producers are working very hard to make it seem like they aren’t—I mean, I could be wrong, it wouldn’t be the first time, but I’d be shocked. Yes, they’re fully in love; they’re fully in a relationship—and he’s also just shooting this show where he sleeps with other people …” Your move, Raven fans …

Scroll down below to find out how the Girls and Get Out star celebrates each sitting of the reality show—from snack preferences to viewing partners.
1. RULE #1: Distract the Dog
"When I’m at home, I give Moxie a bone so she doesn’t bother me," Williams told InStyle about Bachelor Mondays.
2. Rule #2: Have the snacks ready
Her primetime go-tos? Goldfish, pretzels, and ice cream.
3. Rule #3: Create the Proper Atmosphere
Williams's routine consists of one very important mood-setting factor: "Just silence. There’s no banter."
4. RULE #4: Always Clear Your Schedule
For the record: Allison watches the three hour episodes in full. Real life takes a backseat to The Bachelor: If our interview took place on Monday evening, Williams told us, "I wouldn’t be here. I would be like, I’m so sorry, I can’t come to this, there’s something I need to do." We get it, Allison, we do.
5. Rule #5: Rally the Troops
"We watch it together 100-percent," Williams shared, referring to her husband, CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen. They're in it for the long haul, but note: they won't be sharing snacks come Monday evening: "He’s a Skinny Cow man—I don’t like Skinny Cow, I like the real thing," Williams clarified, "He’s, I guess, more delicate."
