"Hiring A Best Friend (Paid): Hello! I work at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. We are doing a video where we are paying someone to be our friend for a day. The shoot will happen at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures in Hollywood."


In order to determine whether or not Ahmed was truly bestie material, he had to pass these three simple challenges:

1. Be vulnerable with Aria.

2. Defend his honor.

3. Buy him a personalized gift.


At the end of this very weird journey, it appeared that our protagonists had built a unique bond, which led to Aria inviting Ahmed to a Halloween party that weekend.
