Would You Accept This Red Flag? The Bachelorette Kept The Guy Who Slid Into DMs In Quarantine

Pssst. There are spoilers ahead!

"The Bachelorette" is finally back but just because Clare Crawley is the oldest bachelorette in the show's history (they keep reminding us of this as if she's 70 years old) and knows exactly what she wants, that doesn't mean some bullsh*t won't slip through the cracks once in a while.

Last night, on the season 16 premiere, Tyler C revealed to Clare some gossip he had heard from a friend with a mutual connection to another contestant on the show, Yosef. Allegedly, Yosef had been DMing Tyler C's friend while quarantined before the show. While, of course, it's a known fact you never want to be the snitch of the season and, therefore, Tyler C was not surprisingly sent home, Yosef got the rose!

Would you have given Yosef the rose if you were Clare?

Personally, Yosef would've gotten the boot from me. Why? Because the reality is, whether or not he slid into people's DMs in quarantine before coming on the show doesn't matter. The problem for me would be he's already wasting precious time that could be spent in much more productive ways than chatting about whether he said "Hey beautiful" to someone in her DMs.

Nobody has time for that. Especially someone who's trying to get engaged at the end of "The Bachelorette."

Even though it's a (hopefully) harmless red flag, Clare had 30-plus other men who weren't pulling her aside to waste her time. She should have focused on them, which she did after a few moments with Tyler C and Yosef, but in the end, she gave Yosef the rose anyway. Do I think he'll make it far? No. So why keep him? Probably because the producers made her, but if it were up to me, gooooooodbye Yosef.

Unfortunately, the time is here. It is officially the spring semester, and you know what that means: lots and lots of studying. If you are in the same situation I am, then you are probably doing your 3rd semester of online/hybrid school. Not being at school or not attending classes in person definitely makes learning and studying a lot harder. Because I know this struggle all too well, I put together a list of study tips to hopefully help us all succeed a little more this semester.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
