Pretty Little Liars & DAYS Star Brant Daugherty Eliminated On Dancing With The Stars!

In what seems like a vote where America got it wrong, Pretty Little Liars and Days of our Lives star, Brant Daugherty was voted off the ABC ballroom dance competition, Dancing with the Stars along with his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd at the end of Monday’s night’s episode!

Week after week, Brant overcame adversity from: being robbed at gunpoint, sharing his struggles with the injury of his shoulder for years, tearing a tendon in his foot, and telling the story of how his dreams came true in Hollywood, just as his beloved father had passed away, who always rooted him on!

After getting another series of 9’s from the judges which included guest judge, Cher, for their foxtrot last night, in the end it was still Bill Engvall and Emma Slater surviving on, when clearly Bill  is the weakest competitor out there!  After Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani were given a reprieve too,  it then came down to Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke or Brant and Peta.  It was sadly, Brant and Peta’s names who were called.

Is America not voting for the right couple?  Popularity contests are often not a measure of who gave their all and who deserves to stay in!  Let us know, do you think Brant and Peta should have been the duo to be sent home last night?

Was he the weakest dancer? No. Is it a shocker? No. Is it any different than any other good dancer getting ditched for someone with a bigger fan base? NO. My main reason for not liking this show – it is and always has been about the most POPULAR dancer rather than the best. And soap fans, after constantly pushing for “vote for our guy/gal” whether they were the best or not, shouldn’t be surprised at this result. Engvall may not have been the better dancer, but has an engaging personality and a big fan base. The scores given by… Read more »

I dont trust voting on these type of shows, and i sometimes feel that some things are done to add contriversy and to generate publicity…in the case of this show it could be they attract a lot of dumb voters who are not serious and just vote 4 the hell of it…just saying!!!

Brant should NOT have been sent home. He is a fantastic dancer, getting better each week. Bill Engvall should have been eliminated instead, hopefully he will get the boot next week. I am a very long time watcher of DWTS, season two on. There have been many, many times over the years that the wrong contestants were sent packing too early. Also many times that the wrong people won. Who knows the reasons why people vote the way they so. Also makes you wonder whether or not the votes are rigged in some way. Makes you wonder. But I still… Read more »

Week after week the hosts tell viewers to vote for their favorite couple, not who was the best dancer, so why are people shock when celebs or pro dancers that don’t have a big fan base go home before those who do? And as a soap watcher and a DAYS fan I still have no idea who this guy was? I watched DAYS steady for years and don’t have a clue who he played– so he might have been on a soap but I don’t think he is bonafide soap star like Kelly was a last season. But at the… Read more »

You know, I don’t remember him from Days either! And you have some excellent points.

One thing, though,. They do not all get the same amount of money for one week or ten. They get the same amount in the beginning, but each “star” who continues gets more money per week, and after a couple weeks the amount goes up substantially. The pay goes up per week again. The pay day is really quite good on Dancing with the Stars. Can’t remember exactly how much but it is surprisingly high dollar!

Thanks Mollie– I must have been thinking of the flat fee for joining the show was all they got– did not realize they got more as they when along, but that would make sense. I guess that would explain why so many “reality stars” like this show, even if you get booted out week one you still pocket more money most people make in years. And it would explain why some seemed to get so upset when they are send home– I always thought the tears were a bit much since they got paid and haven’t lost anything but a… Read more »

Of course those who voted got it wrong.He definitely belonged in the top three.But,of course,those who voted for President of the United States in the last election got it wrong too- oh so wrong .

Brant Daugherty is charming and charismatic and should have a bright future.

DWTS is often an entertaining show, but I can’t take it seriously. No one who does it seems to have a bad time. Most to seem to have lovely things to say about the show and their fellow contestants. As it has been said, the voting is really a popularity contest ~ and rightfully, should be recognized as such. If all of America were qualified to judge, it would be a different story. We’re not (I’m not) so I just enjoy it when I happen to tune in. I though Brant did a marvelous job and would have liked to… Read more »

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
