Best And Worst Moments Of "Bachelor In Paradise"

The Best And Worst Moments Of 'Bachelor In Paradise,' Season 5

Lots of good and bad times!


Hello again, "Bachelor" fans. What a wild summer it's been watching "Bachelor In Paradise"! Out of all the "Bachelor" shows, this one is definitely the best. 'The Bachelor" is entertaining, and "Bachelor Winter Games" was something new and fun, but something about "Bachelor In Paradise" makes me so much more invested in all of the relationships that form.

This season had an amazing group of "Bachelor" alum that made every moment amusing. That being said, there were a lot of good times and a lot of bad times. Nevertheless, I will always watch, no matter how corny the content gets.

1. Worst: Watching Tia be so hung up on Colton.

Tia? Cool girl. Watching her obsess over a guy we all know she'll never end up with? Yikes.

2. Best: When Colton FINALLY told her he isn't on the same page.

We ALL saw this coming from the start. He's a good guy, but he was never 100% into his relationship with Tia. I'm just glad these two are finally at a good place.

3. Worst: When Kendall broke Grocery Store Joe's heart.

Seeing Joe upset literally killed me.

4. Best: When they got back together.

Thank God Kendall finally came to her senses. Here's hoping these two grow old together while managing a grocery store.

5. Worst: When Shushanna used her witch powers for evil and not good.

Burning Kamil's picture in the fire was definitely some kind of crazy voodoo. Shushanna was also extremely rude in only calling Annaliese "the blonde girl".

6. Best: When Shushanna and Robby got together because they're both awful and deserve each other. 

I was about to throw my remote at the TV when I saw Robby walk into Paradise. The only thing that made it okay that he was there was when he took Shushanna on a date.

7. Worst: Not seeing nearly enough Wells this season.

ABC, you really messed up here. Who doesn't love Wells?

8. Best: Getting the addition of Yuki as a bartender.

Yuki cracked me up on "Bachelor Winter Games" and seeing her trying to bartend was just as hilarious.

9. Worst: Not knowing why the hell Kevin broke up with Astrid, AKA a goddess.

They were so perfect! It was so hard to watch Kevin struggle, mainly because he's the ultimate bae.

10. Best: Seeing that the two have worked things out and are back together.

Hottest couple alive! Am I right?

11. Best: When John became the new kissing bandit.


Who knew that this guy could be such a player? I think he kissed almost every girl in Paradise. Go, Venmo John!

Worst: Remembering that Arie used to be called the "kissing bandit".

Ew. I cringe just thinking about him.

13. Best: When Christen AKA Scallop Fingers came back to find love.

Maybe this time it will work out for her!

14. Worst: Watching Christen fail to find love for the millionth time.

Damn it. It's like a never-ending cycle. Hope you find it one day, girl!

15. Best: Seeing Jordan so happy with Jenna and realizing he isn't as evil as he was portrayed on Becca's season.

These two were literally my favorite couple. I got chills when Jordan got down on one knee.

16. Worst: When Jenna cheated on Jordan after they were engaged and set a wedding date.

Although she commented on these accusations saying it didn't happen, the pair isn't together anymore. My heart breaks for Jordan and I hope he can find some peace in all this. Thanks a lot, Jenna!

17. Worst: How uncomfortable Kevin was watching his ex, Ashley I, get engaged.

I was so beyond excited for Ashley and Jared, but felt so bad for Kevin. He obviously still holds the breakup with her close to his heart.

18. Best: Finally seeing Ashley I get engaged to a great guy like Jared.

No more tears! Finally! A happy ending that Ashley I deserves.

19. Worst: Cringing at every single thing Annaliese said.

She was in way too deep. She said she'd say yes if Kamil proposed, but we all knew that was NEVER going to happen.

20. Best: Kamil breaking up with her, FINALLY.

He was a jerk when breaking up with her, but she would've never got what she wanted if she stayed with him.

21. Worst: Any moment Grocery Store Joe wasn't on the screen.

I could easily just watch a reality show with Joe and Joe only.

22. Best: Grocery Store Joe's smile.

THAT SMILE IS LIKE MAGIC. I literally melt. Anyone else wishing they were Kendall?

23. Best: Krystal and Chris being the only relationship to lead to a successful engagement.

Two villains found love with each other, and they seem oh so happy. Hopefully, they're in it for the long haul and can join Carly, Evan, Jade, and Tanner as "Bachelor In Paradise" royalty.

That's it for now, "Bachelor" fans! See you in January for another round of Colton trying to find love. This should be interesting.

36 Rules Of Life From 'NCIS's' Leroy Jethro Gibbs

Sometimes we all need a smack on the back of the head.

I have been watching "NCIS" since the show began back in 2003, and season 15 will be airing this September. It is one of the longest running series and for a good reason, even though a lot of your favorite characters die off in the show they somehow still keep it alive. Anyone who has watched an episode or more knows about the infamous Gibbs's rules. Here's the list that we can gather from the many episodes:

Rule 1: "Never let suspects stay together." - revealed in the Season 1 premiere episode, Yankee White (episode).

Rule 2: "Never screw over your partner." - revealed in the Season 4 episode, Blowback (episode). McGee also stated this rule to Ned Dorneget in Need to Know (episode). McGee also mentioned to Abigail Borin in Ships in the Night (episode) that rule number one has been taken twice, showing that he knows that there are two number one rules.

Rule 3: "Always wear gloves at a crime scene." - revealed in "Yankee White."

Rule 4: "Don't believe what you're told. Double check." - again revealed in "Yankee White."

Rule 5: "Never be unreachable." - revealed in the Season 3 episode, Deception (episode) although Gibbs has been known to be intentionally unreachable. The rule was shown in Rule Fifty-One (episode) in the background when Gibbs opens the box.

Rule 6: "The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best." - revealed in the Season 4 episode, Blowback (episode)

Rule 7: "You don't waste good." - revealed in the Season 8 episode, Baltimore (episode).

Rule 8: "Never say you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness." - This rule has been mentioned throughout the series, but it wasn't given a specific number until Flesh and Blood (episode). The rule is also a direct reference to John Wayne's catch phrase in "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" (John Ford, Director). Wayne said: "Never apologize, mister, it's a sign of weakness." to subordinates in a military situation. DiNozzo notes the connection in Hiatus Part 1 (episode). Mark Harmon's career has paralleled John Wayne's. They both were quarterback of their southern California college football team, both went into acting. (Harmon's father, Tom Harmon, was a Heisman Trophy-winner and actor & announcer as well.) Note: This is continuously told to Tony, Ziva and Tim through a smack to the back of their heads.

Rule 9: "Always be specific when you lie." - revealed in the Season 1 finale episode, Reveille (episode).

Rule 10: "Never take anything for granted." - revealed in the Season 3 episode, Probie (episode) although Gibbs also quotes it as being "Never assume" during the Season 9 episode, Rekindled (episode).

Rule 11: "Never go anywhere without a knife." - revealed in the Season 1 episode, One Shot, One Kill (episode)although it's sometimes quoted as "Never leave home without a knife" or "Always carry a knife."

Rule 12: "Never get personally involved in a case." - revealed in the Season 7 episode, Obsession (episode) and again referenced by the new SECNAV Clayton Jarvis in the Season 9 premiere episode, Nature of the Beast (episode) as the number one rule in Washington politics.

Rule 13: "When the job is done, walk away." - revealed in the Season 6 episode, Semper Fidelis (episode).

Rule 14: "Never date a co-worker." - revealed in the Season 1 episode, Enigma (episode).

Rule 15: "Never, ever involve lawyers." - revealed in "Collateral Damage." Rule 51 is written on the back of the card containing Rule 13 in "Rule Fifty-One."

Rule 16: "Bend the line, don't break it." - revealed in Anonymous was a Woman (episode).

Rule 17: "Always work as a team." - revealed in Leap of Faith (episode).

Rule 18: "If someone thinks they have the upper hand, break it." - revealed in the Season 8 finale episode, Pyramid (episode).

Rule 19: "Never, ever interrupt Gibbs during an interrogation." - revealed in the Season 14 episode, Privileged Information (episode).

Rule 20: "It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission." - revealed in Silver War (episode).

Rule 21: "Always look under." - revealed in The Artful Dodger (episode)

Rule 22: "Never ever bother Gibbs in interrogation." - revealed in Smoked (episode).

Rule 23: "Never mess with a Marine's coffee... if you want to live."- revealed during "Forced Entry."

Rule 24: "There are two ways to follow someone. First way, they never notice you. Second way, they only notice you." - Jack Knife (episode) and "Rule Fifty-One."

Rule 25: "When you need help, ask." - revealed during Blood Brothers (episode).

Rule 26: "Always watch the watchers." - revealed in "Baltimore."

Rule 27: "If you feel like you are being played, you probably are." - revealed in Nature of the Beast (episode).

Rule 28: "Your case, your lead." - revealed in Bounce (episode) placing Tony as temporarily in charge of the team, and also in Phoenix (episode) with Ducky as leader.

Rule 29: "There is no such thing as coincidence." - revealed in Obsession (episode) although DiNozzo states that Rule 39A is "There is no such thing as a small world" during Canary (episode).

Rule 30: "If it seems like someone is out to get you, they are." - revealed in Borderland (episode).

Rule 31: "Never accept an apology from someone who just sucker punched you." - revealed in Psych Out (episode).

Rule 32: "First things first, hide the women and children." - This rule number was mentioned in Patriot Down (episode) but was not stated until Rule Fifty-One (episode).

Rule 33: "Clean up the mess that you make." - revealed in "Rule Fifty-One" although it's also stated as "Never leave behind loose ends" in Hiatus Part 2 (episode).

Rule 34: "Sometimes you're wrong." - Created by Gibbs in Rule Fifty-One" by writing it on the back of the card containing Rule 13. It is unknown if his coworkers are aware of this rule.

Rule 35: "Always give people space when they get off an elevator." - revealed in Double Back (episode)

Rule 36: "Never trust a woman who doesn't trust her man." - revealed in Devil's Triangle (episode).

While some seem to deal with Gibbs only there are some very great life lessons present. If you haven's started watching "NCIS" I suggest you start soon, it is all on Netflix.

With 'Homecoming,' Beyoncé Again Proves She Is Incomparable

She's not called Queen B for nothing.


In true Beyoncé fashion, fans had almost no time to prepare themselves for the Netflix "Homecoming" documentary. "Homecoming," if you've been under a rock, was all about Beyoncé's iconic Coachella performance — dubbed "Beychella," back in 2018.

This documentary showed the visions, the creative processes, the struggles and the artistry behind the very meaningful Coachella performance. Beyoncé was the first black woman to headline the festival, and it was known to not only the crowd but viewers worldwide who were able to watch it live. Beyoncé says in the documentary that instead of wearing a flower crown to headline Coachella, she wanted to be a representation of her race. And that she did.

All of the tributes to Black culture were impressive from dressing as B.C. Egyptian queen Nefertiti to honoring the Divine Nine. The Divine Nine is the Greek letter organizations that were usually founded at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's). Beyoncé also sings what is commonly referred to as the Black National Anthem, "Lift Every Voice" and includes many HBCU signatures like stepping and drumlines.

In "Homecoming," Beyoncé speaks on the importance HBCU's had to her seeing as grew up in Houston, Texas. She said that going to Battle of the Bands was something she'll never forget. Reason one that Beyoncé is incomparable is not just that she is the first black woman to headline Coachella, but that she brought a unique aspect that had never been done before and that paid tribute to her culture. Beyoncé and her team's creative processes were also very unique. For a festival show, the stage presence was much different. With over 200 people on stage, from an orchestra to dancers to back up vocals, Coachella had never seen a headliner like this.

Throughout the documentary, we see time changes from Coachella weekend one and Coachella weekend two, and yet Beyoncé's dance routines switch seamlessly. Her choreography with other dancers and performers is perfectly the same an entire week apart. Beyoncé mentions in the documentary that she was trying to fit "22 years of (her) career in a two-hour performance," so the audience hears songs from the '90s in her girl group Destiny's Child to her most recent album at the time in 2016.

Despite the significant time jumps, Beyoncé flawlessly blends the music together and creates a set list that played into fans' nostalgia and the trending music. Her ability to captivate a stage is reason two why she is incomparable to any other artist or any other performance done.

Some of the more emotional parts of the documentary come from Beyoncé's vulnerability with the audience, to speak with the troubles she had with her second pregnancy. Beyoncé was scheduled to headline Coachella in 2017 but became pregnant so she had to cancel. Beyoncé opens up about she developed preeclampsia and had to get an emergency C-section.

Beyoncé then speaks on how hard it was to perform at her best when she had gained weight after the C-section. She revealed she pushed herself too far to reach her goal weight and says she will never push herself that far ever again. Beyoncé says she did Soul Cycle and had her intense rehearsals, and on top of that she was on a very strict diet of no bread, no sugar, no dairy, no alcohol, no fish and no meat. With all of that, Beyoncé still wanted more saying she hoped to get to a place where she could do the stairs as well.

Reason number three Beyoncé is incomparable is because of the limits she pushed herself through in order to deliver the show she wanted to see inspire so many people, who often do not get to see themselves fairly represented. Throughout the documentary, the audience can see so much work and effort the entire team put in, in order to succeed. The woman behind the vision was successful in bringing together so many different people with different talents to highlight her community and her culture. Beyoncé says in "Homecoming" that she wanted this performance to feel like a call for unity, and she "wanted everyone who has been dismissed because of the way they look to feel like they were on that stage."

And that's why Beyoncé is, without a doubt, incomparable.
