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

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 phenomenon of Chicken Tikka

As I sat and had lunch with my colleagues in London, we got into a conversation about British food that I need to try before I leave. Immersed in a conversation about Sunday roasts, mashed potatoes and sausages, I almost fell off my chair when one of my colleagues looked right at me and told me to try chicken tikka masala “the national food of Britain.”

the baby of the friend group holds hands with her friends
Alli Michal Huff

In every friend group or squad there is the baby of the group. This is the youngest one and usually you can tell because they are more carefree and they are not sure what is going on. They are usually the lightweight because all of their friends can be like moms sometimes. Here are some ways to know if you are the baby of the friend group.

Friends come together

She sat us down in her room the day that we all returned from Fall Break. "I have to tell you guys something," she said. She told us that she was transferring after the first semester. She was changing her major and she was going to be more comfortable and have more opportunities to learn and grow at her new college. I was happy for her because I knew that she was struggling to figure out what she wanted to change her major to, but that small, selfish part of me did not want her to leave. I am not naive to the fact that I most likely will have a couple more friends transfer somewhere along the line before we graduate. Goodbyes to friends that transfer will always be bitter-sweet, but sometimes it is hard to know exactly what to say to someone who is transferring. Below are 6 important things to say to someone who is taking the a different path in their college journey.
