  1. huh  

    have any of these personals seriously ever found people?

  2. hmm  

    both seem pretty contrived....and irrationally into themselves....

  3. Indian Burrito?  

    You will never find love with ignorant talk like that. It's called a frankie.

  4. Me  

    oh i don't who choose between the two, they are both are so hot!!! esp. bachelor #2.

  5. hotter than hottie  

    The second one's cute and seems cool, but the top one definitely looks like a psycho serial killer.

  6. alum

    man i hadn't thought of Morningside food until just now, and fuck i want me some bombay frankie. roti rolls and that fucking spicy popcorn shrimp. fuck fuck fuck.

  7. oooohhh  

    someone's got a secret.

    quick change on the "guy for guy" up top.

    it's okay friend, diana ross did it too.

  8. christian  

    is adorable in real life..

  9. wow  

    Bachelor 1: You are NOT going to capture girls' hearts with "2 Girls, 1 cup" references. Not even because it's gross. But because it's just not funny anymore.

  10. varun  

    and by him i mean christian. mmm mmm.

  11. Contact  

    You may reach Bachelor number 2 at 646.209.5179

  12. me!  

    when i read this the first time and the first guy's heading said "guy for guy" it made a whole lot more sense. i like sufijan, but c'mon, you listen to his weirdest song. flambée

  13. oh come on peeps  

    i would totally let #1 stick it in. i am a judgmental person but please stop the hate.

  14. jonathan mason  

    is gay, right?

  15. #me#  

    What is "2 Girls, 1 Cup"???

  16. oregano  

    hey christian, how many times a day do you get the Wilmer Valderamma comparison? 3? 10?

  17. heyvarun  

    varun, you are shameless

  18. oh ew  

    that guy christian doesnt look like tht in real lfe. very flattering picture. in real life, hes really short, has a huge head and bad skin. sorrrrry

  19. Midget  

    Jonathan, why won't you let me love you?

  20. mmm  

    jonathan mason is a sexy mofo

  21. oopsy, 28 again  

    in case you didn't get it, the first video link is NOT FUCKING SAVE FOR WORK/SCHOOL/LIFE

  22. yes  

    jonathan mason is hot!

  23. frammit  

    now i want a jarrito.

  24. oh ew?  

    I always see Christian on campus with a different girl every week. That picture can't be too much of an exaggeration/flattering

  25. his suitemate  

    boy, that Christian dude is probably the most sexy/mysterious Hispanic dude I've ever experienced. I would experience him any hour of the day.

  26. me.  

    me: spiky asian hair

    you: wristband, jeans and bhangra tshirt

    email me

  27. varun  

    i think christian and i have some sort of missed connection or something


  28. looking for flava  

    I think Tacqueria makes the blandest burritos ever. I guess it wasn't meant to be.

  29. 2 girls  

    Excellent reference to Two Girls, One Cup, Mase.

  30. heresy  

    hatchet was the best part of middle school. we can't be friends, christian.

  31. just peeped

    jonathan's facebook and he's actually pretty cute. well dressed/groomed etc. christian is attractive as well, you can tell he knows it, though. oh facebook

  32. sweetness  

    bachelor #1 is the hottest thing in HISTW 3026. He can have me.

  33. ...  

    The girl that is cut off in Christian's picture looks far more interesting than either of those two fellows.

  34. lets be honest  

    they are guys that go to CU. come on people, how hot do you expect them to be?

  35. mannn  

    jonathan mason looks soooo much hotter on facebook than in the picture above. new picture pleeease!

  36. latina  


  37. ugh

    both are unattractive though i must say the second one i have seen before and he is not the looker
