8 Reasons 'Bachelor In Paradise' Is The Best Thing To Come Out Of The Whole Franchise

8 Reasons 'Bachelor In Paradise' Is The Best Thing To Come Out Of The Whole Franchise

Almost paradise!


It's that time of the year again; school is out, the sun is shining, and 'Bachelor in Paradise' is back on our TV screens. In my humble opinion, 'Bachelor in Paradise' is better than it's parent shows, 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette.' If you're also a fan of this crazy franchise, then just read on to see why!

1. There's multiple couples, instead of just one person dating multiple contestants


One big draw to this spin-off, in my opinion, is that you get to watch multiple different couples form (and probably break up), instead of watching the one bachelor or bachelorette form relationships with multiple people (which will probably end in a break up). More couples = more drama.

2. It all happens on a beach in Mexico


...Which means a bunch of hot people running around in bathing suits.

3. It has a kind of surprising success rate


I mean, it's not like these dating shows have a great success rate anyway, but for a show that's had four seasons, it's ended in two successful marriages, both of which have kids now, too!

4. All your favorite previous cast members make a return


From villains to fan favorites, they'll all be there for you to love, or love to hate...

5. It gives a second chance to contestants who were kicked off early


This season is all about Grocery Store Joe, who was kicked off night one on Becca's season of 'The Bachelorette,' and now has a second chance in paradise.

6. The crabs (not that kind)


There are so many crabs living on the beach with the cast, they're basically cast members too.

7. Wells the bartender


Wells, from all the way back in Kaitlyn's season, is here to serve up drinks and comment on everyone's life choices. Although, I do still miss the OG, Jorge, from time to time...

8. The fact that Chris Harrison's still there for some reason


Although he doesn't really do anything but show up in the title credits and the rose ceremonies, he still gets to hang out in Mexico for a few weeks. But, then again, would it really be a 'Bachelor' show without Chris Harrison? (The answer is no).

Now, get watching! 'Bachelor in Paradise' season five is airing now on ABC.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.


One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.

In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.

Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.

After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.

Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.

Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?

The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.

The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.

Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
