Each spring, students at Texas A&M have the opportunity to experience a week long competition similar to the hit show, The Bachelor.  Called Paddy Murphy, the spinoff pits sororities against one another for a chance at love and good publicity.  

The spin-off gets its name from the legend of Paddy Murphy in which multiple women stepped forward claiming to be his widow, in order to claim his estate.  In a similar manner, the sororities at Texas A&M will fight one another to claim the prize money awarded to whatever chapter is named Ms. Paddy Murphy.

Ruining reputations from the inside out, the week is highlighted by drama occurring within each house and between them, just like on The Bachelor.  Last year, Joey English was the lucky man given the opportunity to choose which house would be named Ms. Paddy Murphy.  “Last spring when it came down to the finale, I had to pick two winners. I couldn’t decide which house I loved more,” he said.  

This year’s lucky man is JC Reynolds, who has determined the events the women will compete in this year.  “Beginning the week will be a cook off on Sunday, to show which sorority can prepare the best meal.  Other events will include each sorority’s ability to wash the fraternity cars, donate gifts to the fraternity, and display their own unique personality on Wild-Card Day.  I’m most looking forward to Friday when teams from the top four chapters will compete against one another physically.”  The ability to easily cheat during the competition has encouraged trash talking in pledge class group messages and confirmed the old saying,  “Nobody can better pick apart a sorority girl than a girl from another sorority.”  To many, the infighting between sororities and being manipulated into serving a fraternity is all worth the promise of good PR, even if it is only known to those involved in Greek Life.

Netflix & Drill

Not like that, you pervert. Like Corps drills. Get your mind out of the gutter. “Why is ‘The Bridge on The River Kwai’ not on Netflix,” he shouts. Netflix & Drill doesn’t just stand for the Aggie football games, he remains standing for the entirety of every single weekend the Aggies play football, sitting down only to sleep.

    Great pic of my house. All proceeds from Paddy Murphy will be donated to the participating sororities philanthropies. As of now upwards of 20K has been raised! Great job TAMU! Keep up the good work!
