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

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.

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.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
