For love or money

Trista Rehn was broke before her debut in ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” but she is not anymore. She and new fiance Ryan Sutter signed a major contract with ABC to have their wedding broadcast live on national televison.

As the days of summer vacation started in mid-May, Rehn and Sutter were signing a contract with ABC for $100,000, and she is getting the Cinderella fairy tale wedding most girls dream of, because ABC has agreed to give them $1 million for the wedding. However, with this big check, Rehn and Sutter really do not have a say in their wedding. ABC will make all of the decisions from the clothes on their backs to the food at the reception.

Sophomore Marquita Smith said, “Marriage shouldn’t be taken lightly. I guess anything is possible, but honestly I don’t think it will last.”

If the happy couple at some point decide not to get married, they have to give ABC the $100,000 back with no ifs, ands or buts.

“Anytime you manufacture love on TV, it’s bound to fail,” junior Kym Benedict said. However, some hopeless romantics feel as though the couple will last. “I think it will last, but that she is just looking for attention,” freshman Alisa Siderio said.

Only time and money will tell.
