I’ve been a fan of the Bachelor franchise for many years now and recently found myself wondering what it would be like if UT Austin had its own version of the show. Dating is tough, but dating in West Campus can feel like a war zone, so I decided to make things a little easier. Just call me Chris Harrison because I have the final date card and you get to decide who is here for the right reasons.
