THE BACHELORETTE: A Tale Of Two Ambulances, Awkward Spa Date & Songwriting Your Feelings

Courtesy/ABC

On week 3 of The Bachelorette, plenty of broken bones were the order of the episode, and some pretty uncomfortable moments for the contestants, and the audience watching at home.

In this installment, we start with a group date where Becca has invited several of the fellas to join her. Becca has a spa day in mind … and so what’s a girl to do?  Have some of your infamous ‘Bachelor ‘contestants you competed against for Arie’s heart hanging out with you.  One of which is Tia.  Yup, Tia!  The girl that apparently dated this season’s ‘Bachelorette’ contestant, Colton, who is causing so much ‘inner-conflict” for Becca, because of this bit of intel.

So now, the stage was set! Colton, who is taking part on the group date sees Tia, in the most uncomfortable and forced, awkward situation of the episode.  Colton hugs it out with Tia.  Then, Tia and Becca sit down to discuss Tia’s relationship with Colton.  Both Tia and Becca believe it is quite possible Colton signed on to be a contestant on this season, hoping Tia would be The Bachelorette. Tia assures Becca, that the relationship did not get serious and it was long-distance.

Side note: the most embarrassing moment of the season lands on Becca, when she can’t remember the name of one of the guys she chose for this group date.  It’s Jason, Becca! Jason!

Later, within a quick blip, looks like Becca’s fears have melted away when she and Colton talk it out at the cocktail party that night.  In fact, she gives him the group date rose.  But also at ‘said’ cocktail party: David is getting more annoyed with Jordan.  It comes to a boiling point when male model Jordan brags he has almost 4,000 Tinder matches! David goes straight to Becca to tell her that this dude is not on the up and up and not here for the right reasons.  She uses the information, and turns it on Jordan with a high-five for reaching the Tinder 4K mark! Jordan calls David, “A bitch”.

Next, the producers have been teasing all through the episode that it is Jordan who causes bodily harm to David .. but guess what?  Not the case. Damnit!  Ambulances and the paramedics are called to the  contestants house, where David is wheeled out with blood all over the floor and clothes in his room. Chris Harrison comes to tell Becca what happened.  It turns out David fell out of his bunk bed and crashed to the floor face first.  Becca feels bad, and calls David.  He says he will be back soon after getting fixed up in the hospital.

The week’s one-on-one date went to Chris, who goes to the Capitol Records building with Becca, and land in a studio where, none other than  Richard Marx is supposedly recording.  Marx has a songwriting challenge for both Becca and Chris – to write down some song lyrics based on how they feel about each other.  How is that possible when they have barely spent any time together? Chris begins to clam up and struggle with the assignment.  It looks like he cannot put a thought to pen and paper.  Viewers learn Chris was abandoned by his father at a young age, and that Chris tried to reconnect with his dad a few years ago by writing him a letter, in which the father never replied, or reached back to him.  Chris feels if he shares his feelings he will get hurt. Somehow, just somehow, when you think he had nothing written to share to Becca and Richard, he comes up with solid romantic lyrics. Whoa, it was touch and go there!

Later, the two have an intimate dinner where Chris opened up about his past with his dad to Becca.  She feels sad about his past, and gives him a rose.  Marx, shows up out of nowhere in another large room serenading the couple as they dance and makeout to “Right Here Waiting.”

On the second group date, ten of the men take to a football field for some drills and a scrimmage in front of a bunch of  “extras’ err, “audience’.  Clay, an NFL player, was the standout in “The Becca Bowl.”  In fact, Becca was very turned on by his athletic prowess juxtaposed against his mild demeanor.  Just then, bad news struck.  Clay hurt his wrist in a play in the end zone.  He is then also taken out by ambulance! At the afterparty, while Blake fumes that he is getting jealous of not spending any one on one time with Becca, Clay re-emerges with his arm in a sling.  Becca is thrilled to see him and awards him the group date rose, rattling the other guys.

The next day, just before the rose ceremony, Clay admits he needs surgery to repair his wrist in time for football season.  He says he is having an internal struggle of what to do because of his family and his career, but totally digging Becca.  Ultimately, he decides to leave the show, return the group rose, and tell Becca the truth.  She is left in tears as Clay drives off in the limo.

In one of the big teasers for next week’s episode, David returns following smashing his face, and the producers blurred out his face in the preview making it seem like some disfigurement is on the way.  But is it really?

So, what did you think about the shenanigans on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette? Who do you think is the frontrunner for Becca’s heart now? Who do you think will be sent home at next week’s rose ceremony? Comment below.

AMERICAN IDOL: Ziggy Krassenberg and Abi Carter Impress the Judges and Bring the Tears

On Sunday night’s February 25th episode of American Idol, there were several strong performances by young talent. However, when the smoke cleared, two will remain most memorable. Just how far they will go as the competition progresses no one knows, but in the case of one of them, two of the Idol judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, think they found the season’s winner.

First, viewers met Holland’s Ziggy Krassenberg. Previously, Ziggy revealed he competed on the Dutch version of ‘Idol’ and came in at seventh place. A social media influencer, Ziggy is known for his blue and pink-tinged hair.

Fans of the show on social media seemed split on Ziggy, including those that felt he should not compete in the American-version of ‘Idol’, since he comes from The Netherlands. But a cautionary tale here folks! Nutsa made it into the Top 25 and beyond on last season of ‘Idol’ and she hailed from the country of Georgia.

Once in the audition room, when Katy, Lionel and Luke asked Ziggy about his background, he said people don’t like him in his home country because of his “big personality” and call him “cotton candy.”

Next, Ziggy let out a beautiful rendition of Lady Gaga’s “A Million Reasons.” Following his performance, he was asked about his mother, who he said was a drug addict and not around, and his father, who he had a difficult relationship passed away last year, and so he raised himself. Lionel noted that Ziggy had been trying to be accepted by people his whole life, now it’s their turn to help raise him up. Ziggy was in tears and received a golden ticket. Watch went down below.

Later in the episode, we meet 21-year-old Abi Carter from Indio, California. She is about to play the piano and sing “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish from the Barbie movie. As she does, members of her family – brother, sisters and mom, listen in the doorway, while the brother tries to watch Abi’s audition looking through a crack of the door on the floor.

Inside, Carter delivered her own rendition of the Eilish Grammy-award winning Song of the Year. The judges fell in love with her perfect performance and how unique her voice was juxtaposed with her rendition of the tune. Afterwards, Abi is in tears.

Katy Perry stepped out from behind the judges desk and walked over to a Carter, praising her for singing from the heart and asking “What were you made for for? You were made for this, 100-percent.” Next, Abi’s family ran into the room for a group hug, bringing everyone to even more tears.

Watch Abi’s performance below.

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

The first bout of the  was the women’s elimination chamber match-up with the winner facing Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania for the WWE Women’s Championship (Ripley retained her title in the main event in her homeland at the end of the night on Saturday against Nia Jax).

The three final participants were Belair, Morgan and Lynch. However, it wasn’t going to be the EST’s night as Belair was eliminated by Morgan and then Lynch pinned Morgan. Becky was victorious.

In the men’s elimination chamber match-up, the winner would go on to WrestleMania to battle Seth “Freakin” Rollins for the WWE World Championship.  The men’s ‘chamber’ also opened up many storylines to come.

Battling it out were Drew McIntrye, L.A. Knight, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, Randy Orton and Logan Paul. Interference by A.J. Styles out of nowhere and attacking Knight with a chair, set up “The Mega-Star’s” elimination.

Later, after Randy Orton eliminated Logan Paul (with his brass knuckles), the match got down to two … Orton or McIntrye. However, Paul rose up from the ring apron and hit Orton in the head with the ‘knucks’ allowing McIntrye to get the pin.

Looks like Orton vs Paul and Styles vs. L.A. Knight might also be on tap for some major WrestleMania 40 feuds.

So, happy or unhappy with the outcome of the elimination chamber winners, Becky Lynch and Drew McIntyre? Comment below.
