17 Buzzwords and Phrases You Hear On 'The Bachelor'

Anyone who has ever watched ‘The Bachelor’ or ‘The Bachelorette’ knows that it is a show that truly would not be the same without all of its drama, love, (mostly) happy endings, and of course, the words and phrases used by both the Bachelor, Bachelorette, and the contestants season after season. We don’t quite know why they are used so excessively, but we, as fans, accept it because the show would not be complete without them.

1. "Connection."

I honestly don’t think that it’s possible to watch an episode and avoid hearing this word. When you hear it from the bachelor or the bachelorette, it is usually in context to one specific contestant. When you hear it from one of the contestants, it is usually while they are explaining how confident they are in their connection with the bachelor/bachelorette, or while comparing their connection to the connection of another contestant.

2. "Journey."

This word is one that you hear at various times throughout the show from the Bachelor, Bachelorette, and the contestants, and it is usually followed by…

3. "Amazing."

The journey. That date. That moment. You name it, it’s all amazing on The Bachelor.

4. "Hopeful."

The Bachelor/Bachelorette is always hopeful for what’s to come in the future (and so are the fans).

5. "_____ is the perfect place to fall in love."

No matter what season, no matter what exotic island or foreign country the show takes them, it’s always the most beautiful place they’ve ever been and they couldn’t imagine finding love anywhere other than said location.

6. "The most controversial."

This is the phrase the host, Chris Harrison, uses to describe every Bachelor and Bachelorette finale to date.

7. "Finding love."

It’s no surprise that this phrase is one that is used time and time again. After all, that is the idea behind the show.

8. "Blindsided."

The last thing the contestants on this show want is to feel as though they will end up marrying the Bachelor/Bachelorette and then the next thing they know they are being sent home. If this happens, it usually leaves them….

9. "Devastated."

Not just really, really sad.

10. "Drama."

What would reality TV be without it? This word is said to describe what occurs in the mansion, and is usually focused on one of the contestants, who makes everyone question whether they are…

11. "Here for the right reasons."

Is that contestant there for fame or to find love? If you even have to ask, then they’re probably there for fame.

12. "I can see myself falling for _____."

Since the Bachelor/Bachelorette is technically not allowed to share who they’re in love with early on, this is their way of giving the audience a hint.

13. "Validation."

The contestants need it from the Bachelor/Bachelorette, so that they know they haven’t been forgotten along the way.

14. "Group date."

To be invited on it is the first step. Receiving the group date rose is the second and most important, because it gives the contestant receiving it validation that the Bachelor/Bachelorette wants to keep them around.

15. "Two-on-one."

This phrase is usually accompanied by the word “dreaded,” because as the date card always says, “one stays, one goes.”

16. "One-on-one."

On a show where group dates are a real thing, getting the one-on-one date is a huge deal. In fact, any one-on-one time all that the contestants are able to get is crucial to their relationship with the Bachelor/Bachelorette.

17. "Cheers!"

Before every meal and every cocktail party, there is always a toast, in an effort to keep a positive attitude throughout the entire process.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
