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 judges at this point mean little or nothing. It’s all about those popularity votes.

I totally agree! The show is a joke!

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!!!

Does it really matter which already wealthy and famous person gets deleted from this show? Lol.

one simple word “NOPE”

Hated to see QT Brant go. He was on The View today, dancing.

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 watch every season.

I admire “those” folks…. who have that natural ability to readily SMILE…

and their whole being just lights up.

OH – Yikes

Brant is one of those. dreamy

so isn’t – and YES he’s on nu”ONE LIFE TO LIVE” people…. Corbin Bleu

“Brant” – you need to go back to Salem and befriend Sonny….

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 end of the day, celebs on this show go on it for one of three reasons- to promote themselves, to promote a new project, or to lose weight. They all get the same amount of money whether they stay one week or go the whole ten. It is what it is– entertainment fluff for a Monday night—-

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 mirror ball trophy. Now that know money is on line for them, I can understand some of the reactions better now.

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 have seen him continue on.

Days of our Lives Reveals Newcomers Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon

On the official Days of our Lives Instagram account, a photo has appeared featuring new additions to Salem, Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon.  The Peacock streaming soap opera is not offering up just who they are playing.

However, the smart money seems to be that Jimenez is a recast Gabi Hernandez and Calderon potentially her brother, Dario Hernandez, since the two actors are seen standing in Rafe’s (Galen Gering) kitchen.

In story, Gabi has been stuck in prison for “murdering” Li Shin. Looks like the character will be brought back on to the canvas, but will Gabi reunite with Stefan (Brandon Barash)?

If Calderon proves to be Dario that character has been off the show since 2017, when soap vet Jordi Vilasuso played the part. Dario departed Salem to avoid getting locked up in the slammer and in the process granted Abigail a divorce while in hiding.

If Jimenez looks familiar, she has been featured in roles on Pretty Little Liars,The Newsroom, NCIS, Maya and Breaking Tradition. Calderon has appeared in Walking Dead: World Beyond, and a few episodes of the soapy, The Haves and the Have Nots.

As for Camila Banus, her last day on the DAYS set was back on April 28, 2023, when she revealed she was exiting the role of Gabi, a role she made soap-famous for 13 years.

Do you think Cherie and Al are the new Gabi and Dario? If not, who do you think they are playing? Weigh-in below.

Melissa Reeves Returns to Days of our Lives

Longtime Days of our Lives star, Melissa Reeves, who has not filmed episodes with the Peacock streaming episode since 2021, is reportedly back on set and shooting story as Jennifer Horton. Reeves began her run as Jennifer back in 1985.

Melissa is taping the Thanksgiving episodes, but will also be a part of the Doug Williams memorial in honor her beloved former castmate Bill Hayes, who passed away in January at the age of 98.

According to TV Insider, Melissa had one concern in returning, in that, the role has been most recently been played by Cady McClain in her absence. Reeves expressed, “My one thing was, ‘I’m not taking this away from Cady.’ If this is Cady’s thing and she loves being here and she really loves playing this part, I don’t want to take it away from her. I’m so good either way.”

Previously, Melissa had moved to Tennessee full-time with her husband, Scott Reeves (ex-Y&R, GH, DAYS). Speaking on being back to pay tribute to Bill Hayes, Reeves shared, “I heard about Bill, which was just devastating for all of us. I was like, ‘I wonder if they’re going to do tribute shows.’”

For decades, Reeves along with Matthew Ashford (Jack) formed the Salem supercouple of Jack and Jennifer. She related that she reached out to Ashford who said to her, “Would you ever think about going back?’ to which she replied, ‘Matt, I think about Days all the time.’ Melissa added, “So I said, ‘Matt, you know if they called, I would say yes, but I haven’t heard anything.’”

Being a part of the tribute to Bill Hayes and to say goodbye to his beloved character of Doug Williams, has special significance for Melissa. She mentioned she weeped, recalling, “Of course I cried because he’s such an incredible man, but what an incredible legacy he has left behind as a man, as a father, as a grandfather, as a husband.“

So, looking forward to seeing Melissa Reeves reprise the role of Jennifer Rose Horton later this year as we say goodbye to Doug Williams and honor Bill Hayes? Comment below.
