Why does the speaker say "in order to"? I think just saying "to" is more simple.
You are right! In most cases, "in order to" can be simplified to just "to" without changing the meaning of the sentence. However, many choose to use "in order to" due to personal preference and the fact that it adds a slight tone of formality. However, you can choose to use it or not. Ex: I need to get a 90% on the test in order to pass my course. Ex: I need to get a 90% on the test to pass my course.
