How A Fraternity Party Is Like Being On 'The Bachelor'

Instead of being handed a red rose, lucky girls are handed a red solo cup.

It's week four of "The Bachelor." Since I'm not on the show, I try to find any way possible to relate "The Bachelor" to my personal life. Because I'm sure I am not the only lovely lady out there who has dreamed of a hunk like Nick Viall handing them a red rose, I've made this comparison of how being a girl at a fraternity party is just like being on the show. This way, you too can imagine your own life as a season of reality TV.

1. The bachelor himself

I'll admit, the 18-22ish-year-old boys dressed in their finest comfort color tee-shirts pale in comparison to the pilots, actors and professional athletes the actual show offers. However, I can testify that when you weed out the boys in committed relationships, the one that somehow was already blacked out before the party started, and all of the boys who you know have dated your friends, there seems to be one eligible bachelor that shines among the rest. If you're lucky, he'll be tall, semi-athletic from his days as an intramural star and maybe even have toilet paper in his bathroom that he will let you use (because the public bathroom is scarier than the thought of paying back your student loans).



2. The Competition

We've got contestant A: She's tall, blonde and perfect. She wears Lily dresses and is majoring in political science, but we all know she is here for her MRS degree.


Contestant B: She is super cool and attractive. She is probably the fraternity sweetheart. Her Instagram game is 100, and she is a friend to everyone she meets. So here is the worst part — you can't even hate her. In fact, you're kind of rooting for her, and so is everybody else.


Contestant C: No one really likes her. She causes drama, is selfish, and loose with her morals. Even the brothers at the house don't want to hang out with her, but they tolerate her for one reason — she's hot.


Wherever you and your friends fall, just remember that you are the contestant to beat.


3. Communal Living

College means whether you live in greek housing, a dorm, or apartment you are probably living with most of the people who you hang out with-AKA other contestants. You ladies share meals, bathrooms, go to the pool together, go to bars together, and occasionally you end up wanting the same boy. Who can blame you? Great minds think alike.

Of course, there are some differences between real life and reality TV. Instead of being handed a red rose, the lucky girls are handed a red solo cup. And hey, if you don't make it to the season finally at the end of the night, Just remember this piece of advice from Ali Fedotowsky season 14:

"If that's what he wants, I am not what he wants. How can he look at her and think she could be his wife?”

If you strike out, there is always next Thursday. Until then, snuggle up with your girlfriends, grab your quart of Ben & Jerry's, and talk about Nick Viall shirtless.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
