THE BACHELOR: Hannah Brown and Hannah Ann Rock Peter’s World In Season Premiere

Photo: ABC

Peter Webber, “The Bachelor”, seems to have a penchant for former beauty pageant queens from the south named “Hannah”.  In the three hour season premiere of the reality-competition 24th season, the first impression rose went to Tennessee-native Hannah Ann Sluss, who interrupted Weber three times while he was getting to know the other female contestants, and apparently it didn’t bother Weber, who felt their feelings on shared family values, was part of the reason to give her the key rose of the premiere, which automatically makes her a frontrunner.

But hold your horses, Hannah Brown returns, not once, but twice, in the episode to help Peter’s journey kick-off to finding love, only, the thing of it is, she dumped him on her season of “The Bachelorette” and as viewers learned later in the episode, she may still want a chance with the guy!

This season premiere was set-up differently, when it opened with a scene from the final rose ceremony, where Peter receives some key intel from host and EP Chris Harrison, which sends him reeling.  We don’t know if Peter ever makes it back out of the hotel room and heads back to propose to someone, or the whole thing goes up in flames, or if Hannah Brown has a message or a shock for Weber that she relates to Harrison.  Everyone is trying to guess just what this ending could be that has been teased as “different than anything anyone has ever seen” on the series.

Between plenty of references and obstacle courses (designed to incorporate and have many double entendres on Peter’s professional life as an airline pilot), and the windmills where Hannah Brown and Peter were revealed to have had sex multiple times during  her season of “The Bachelorette”, the series also had a contestant named Kelley, who rubbed all the women the wrong way, cheating her way to win the obstacle course for a ride in the sky with Peter solo.  Thing of it is, we learn that Kelley and Peter met previously before filming the ABC reality-competition series, and at the same hotel they were at for filming in Westlake Village, California.

The end of the three hours provided plenty of sparks, and a major cliffhanger when Hannah Brown and Peter end up behind the scenes and the two have an emotional exchange, when Peter is confused by Hannah’s feelings that she regrets choosing Jed and Tyler over him.  Peter admits he was hurt, add that to the fact that if she questioned her choice why she didn’t reach out to him, to which Hannah replied: “I didn’t know if you wanted to get past it.  I thought you wanted to be the Bachelor.”

Peter asks Hannah if she would consider joining the other women in the house and be in his season for finding love.  We don’t know what her answer will be as the show chyroned “To Be Continued” across the screen, leaving Peter in tears and Hannah B. with tons of mascara running down her face.

The Bachelor returns next Monday, January 13th.  For now, watch what happened between Hannah Brown and Peter which leads to the episode’s cliffhanger below.

Then let us know, who you think the frontrunner is for Peter’s heart and how will Hannah B. play into all that goes down this season on “The Bachelor” in the comment section.

I was sick of the Hannah show throughout the time she was the Bachelorette and now to see her insinuate herself into Peter’s time…..yuck, does she have no shame? These so-called unresolved feelings should have been dealt with in the time her show ended to now. The thing is Hannah should have been barred by the producers but of course the fact this is more scripted than reality means more disgusting drama. Hannah’s show was the worst of all time, DO NOT let her ruin Peter’s show too. She is sickening and looking like a stalker.

did you know; they get to hold onto the ring. However, if their relationship ends in divorce after less than 2 years, the couple must return the ring. In fact, as revealed by Jackie Parr “those delicious meals you see on the one-on-one are for display, not for eating”. If that weren’t interesting enough, if any crowd member has a muted reaction they will quickly be replaced by one of many other potential crowd members in waiting. when it comes to the cast of The Bachelor, when it comes to the ladies competing on the show, they are expected to… Read more »

phoney show with staged moments…every ep is fighting and sobbing women over some guy added for dramatic effect…

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”
