5 Bachelorette Scenarios That Never Actually Happen

I’m entirely guilty of being a religious "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette" fan. Every Monday night, my butt is planted on the couch and my eyes are glued to the TV. However, it doesn’t necessarily take a genius to figure out that shows like "The Bachelorette" are purely scripted. Hollywood generates these overly dramatic “reality” shows solely for entertainment. There are so many situations that take place during the show that never actually happen in real life, and here are a few of them.

For starters, no one has that many guys falling over them.

We get it - Jojo is great. She’s every guy’s dream girl. But to be quite honest, I don’t care how perfect you are. No one, with the exception of wealthy celebrities, has that many guys lining up to date them. It’s so hard to relate to the show for this main reason.

Also, no one looks that good when they wake up.

After a night in the fantasy suite, Jojo rolls out of bed looking flawless. Her makeup isn't smeared in the slightest, her hair is still intact and she looks absolutely perfect. To all the men that watch "The Bachelorette," we kindly ask you to lower your standards. No one actually looks like that when they wake up. I mean, sure, if I had a makeup team that followed me everywhere I went, maybe I would look like that too.

Nobody goes on such extravagant dates.

Unfortunately, the men of my generation lack in the dating category. Believe it or not, watching Netflix constitutes as a date these days. Pathetic, right? Don’t get me wrong, I love Netflix as much as the next person. However, watching the dates that take place on "The Bachelorette" is a major tease. No one goes on helicopter rides and ends their dates with fireworks on a private beach. This is not a thing.

No one talks over dinner without actually touching the food.

I don’t know about you, but when there’s food in front of me, you better believe I’m eating every last bite of it. It will forever baffle me how these people can sit through a dinner date and not even look at the food. How does one have that much self-control? This is one of the most unrealistic situations of them all.

No one cries so much.

Ninety-nine percent of every episode consists of Jojo crying - and I’m over it. Unless you have some sort of disorder, no one cries this much. This is largely unrealistic. Also, I don’t feel sorry for you in the first place, Jojo. You don’t necessarily have it rough right now. Do you know how hard it must be to be alone? You have guys lining up for you! Poor you.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
