I Sat Down With 'Bachelorette' Star, Wills, For A Little Q&A About Life After Reality TV

I was so starstruck writing this!! I am one of the biggest Bachelor/ette/BIP fangirls ever and this interview was just an awesome experience! Wills was on Becca's season of "The Bachelorette" and then was on "Bachelor in Paradise" the following summer! He is LA native with an insane sense of fashion! I was curious what he has been up to so I'm sure you are too!

What was more fun? "The Bachelorette" or "Bachelor in Paradise?"

"'Bachelorette' by far! I had zero expectations going in and I was pleasantly surprised by the experience I had. "BIP" was cut very short for me and due to that I was disappointed."

Why did you decide to apply to be on the show in the first place?

"I didn't apply! I was recruited as I was walking back to work from Target. A casting director ran me down and asked if I was single! Definitely one of the crazier moments of my life and it's led me here!"

Where do you get your style inspiration?

"This is kind of hard for me to answer, lol! I try new things out with the clothes I have and just roll with it! Sometimes I stand in front of the mirror and say 'Should I…?' Usually, I decide if I'm confident, I can pull it off. I'm really into black hoodies right now and track pants."

Who are some of your best friends that you keep in touch with from the show?

"Christon, Jason, Blake, Garrett, and Nick. I try to reach out to most of the boys from time to time though."

Do you still make money on endorsements/appearances?

"I have been fortunate to be considered for collaborations with brands and I truly enjoy working with them. It's an experience I never thought I would have and I love creating content for my fan base."

Do you still have a “real” job?

"I have freelance design jobs that I still do, yes."

Did you watch Colton's season and what did you think?

"What struck me the most was after a lot of the drama and antics, was the emotional maturity and confidence of these women. It's not easy to be rejected, it's even harder to do in front of cameras and millions of viewers. I tip my hat off to each and every one of them because that takes a lot of character."

Do you get recognized when you go out?

"I do get recognized but it doesn't always happen. There are days where I get recognized a lot and days where I don't get recognized at all. Either way is fine with me and I make sure to greet every fan with humility, kindness, and respect. That is extremely important to me, I don't believe myself to be better than anyone and I will always have time to take a picture and have a quick chat."

Would you have been "The Bachelor" if they asked you?

"Hypotheticals are always hard to answer, I would have definitely sat down with my family to weigh the pros and cons of the situation. I think it's safe to say my season would be unlike any other season for many reasons and I would have to take that into account. Am I up to the scrutiny that will follow? Am I ready to lead a season? Am I capable to handle the emotional highs and lows of 30 women and my own? Are you comfortable being responsible for these women's hearts, for better or for worse? If I could answer those positively with confidence, then my decision would be much easier."

 Will you be back in Paradise this year/any crushes from Colton’s season?

"I'm not sure if I'll be back. I had a terrible experience last time and I felt extremely let down. I didn't feel like anyone wanted my happiness. I felt unwanted and not needed. I've bounced back and feel great now but that's a question I need to ask myself: Am I willing to risk those same feelings for the possibility of finding my forever?

As far as crushes go, I've decided to keep those desires more secret now. What I can tell you is several women definitely intrigue me, and there is one who I never considered but the way she handled being dumped, the way she spoke her mind and her post-show interviews are indicative of the characteristics I would love to find in my future wife."

Wills then spilled on Ashley I and Ben's podcast, "Almost Famous", that this person was Katie. Sorry Wills, lol.

 Are you dating anyone now?

"I'm casually dating right now, it's been a bit difficult because I don't know what their intentions are. I subscribe to the school of "show me how you feel, don't tell me." I take a lot of notice in the small and subtle things and I'd like to think I'm a good judge of character. That being said, I'm having fun and if something organic and more concrete comes along, I'm absolutely here for it!"

And then, because Wills is the absolute best, he threw in a,

"GO BLUE! LET'S WIN THIS TOURNAMENT AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN FOOTBALL THIS YEAR!"

Which is all that needs to be said!

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

1939
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
