‘Peloton Girl’ Monica Ruiz Lands Guest Spot On The Bold and the Beautiful

Photo: YouTube

Keeping in line with their previous stunt castings of bringing over some current social media sensations to The Bold and the Beautiful (remember the Golden Globes Fiji Water girl?) comes word via TMZ, that actress Monica Ruiz, who played the wife in the controversial Peloton commercial, is set to tape scenes for an upcoming episode next Tuesday.

Ruiz is reportedly doing a one-day shoot and her appearance will air sometime in January. TMZ shares that if things go well,  and the audience takes to her, she could be back for more.

The ad which in which Ruiz appeared and garnered much backlash featured the actress as a wife, who is an already-fit mother who is beyond thrilled when her husband buys her a Peloton exercise bike for Christmas.

Next, she records her year-long fitness journey as a vlog, and then gives her husband the full video of it the following Christmas and thanks him for ‘changing’ her life.

Social media and critics took note and fired-back and accused Peloton of sexism, while still others interpreted Ruiz’s performance as a woman trying to deal with a case of emotional abuse from her hubby.

Right afterwards, Ryan Reynolds featured Ruiz in an ad for his gin company playing off the fact that she needed a stiff drink after all she has gone though.

So, what do you think about Peloton Girl Monica Ruiz getting a guest spot on The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below. But first watch Ruiz in the Peloton Ad which shot her to notoriety and then the Ryan Reynolds gin ad.

Stunt casting is right. B&B does a lot of that.

If she can act and the role isn’t just something added in, I’m fine with it.

As for the ad, I thought it was a bit inane. I didn’t read as much into it when I saw it as others. I guess because I don’t analyze ads or I fast forwarded through it. Maybe she had a Peloton on her Christmas list. Who knows? Too much ado about nothing.

Mono…Agree with you. Way too much read into the ad. I for one would be thrilled if my husband bought me this type of bike for home. Usually not an inexpensive item, and I’m sure other family members would want to take a spin on it as well. And depending on her role on B&B, I would hope they would capitalize on Monica’s gift of playing it with her sense of humour. The show could really use it.

I read she plays a doctor and in the picture, she was in a scene with Flo.

There has long been stunt casting for decades…i remember watching Sammy Davis Jr. on Love Of Life back in the 70s…as the add goes whats wrong with it..just a fit person staying fit..anyway if they showed an over weight woman people would be outraged by that, saying her hubby has a problem and insulting his wife for being too over weight…people are outraged by every little thing,,,with mass shootings happening several times a year and in schools…our music movies and tv vulgarized with foul words, gross violence and women used as sex objects i say there are other things to… Read more »

JimL..Good to see you back. Add Elizabeth Taylor on GH opposite Luke. Monica is not Elizabeth but, depending who she’s playing and how they want her to play her role, she could bring a little much needed levity to B&B storyline. Or take us away from the constant musical chairs of if “love triangles” with main characters. Maybe help hope as a designer for Hope For the Future line. And I agree about what we show really be outraged about and could add a couple of more to your list.

Liz Taylor as the original Helena Cassadine had to be the ultimate in “stunt casting”. So successful that the first two or three attempts at a Helena recast never got off the ground. Constance Towers managed to pull off the role, but it took them 16 years to find her.

Roseanne Barr as Luke’s “ex wife” (and Frank’s daughter) Jennifer Smith in the mid 1990s was pretty good too, though that was more comic relief than a serious portrayal.

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
