Jimmy Kimmel invited The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe on to his show on Monday to go wedding dress shopping, in honor of her engagement to Shawn Booth. Kimmel joked there is a "20 percent chance they'll get married," so Bristowe will need a dress. Bristowe tried on a series of dresses while Kimmel tried on a few for himself posing as a bridesmaid. While preparing their selection Kimmel joked to the store attendant, "we don’t want this to be like a Kardashian wedding, we want this to be classy." Later in the show, Kimmel had Bristowe and Booth swear on a stack of Us Weekly magazines that they would still be in a committed relationship in one year, or else pay Kimmel $1,000.
After years of declining business, Arby's and Burger King are coming out on top. Arby's just reported same-store sales growth of 7.6% compared with last year's second quarter. Burger King's sales are up 7.9%. Both restaurants' sales growth far exceeded the industry average of 2.3%, according to NPD Group. McDonald's same-store sales fell 0.7% in the second quarter. Arby's executives say business is booming thanks to its "We've Got the Meats" marketing campaign and successful redesign of stores. The company has reported same-store sales growth for 19 quarters. The second-largest burger chain credits poultry for a surge in sales. Burger King brought back Chicken Fries, a menu item it discontinued in 2012, a move executives claim brought back many consumers.
