THE BACHELORETTE: Chris Seals His Fate & Reveals He Was Fat-Shamed, Jason Moves Up in Becca’s Heart, Six Now Remain

Courtesy/ABC

In week six of Becca Kufrin’s quest for love on the 14th season of The Bachelorette, annoying men were the order of the day, especially during a trip to Richmond, Virginia.

Chris, who is trying to recover from the mess he made last week, seems particularly ready to strike and lash out during the episode, and seems to have a continued bickering session with Lincoln, the guy who was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery.

This leads to a horrendous group date in front of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln impersonators, who revealed that the day would involve the men participating in a “political debate” on the capitol steps.  Who comes up with this stuff?  Now the men are forced to “campaign” for Becca’s heart.

Questions are asked of the remaining guys who give pat, boring answers to “impress” Becca.  However, the debate dissolved into a public verbal spat between Chris and Lincoln.  Out of nowhere, Chris brings up that he used to be 300 lbs and Lincoln ‘fat-shamed” him, and how Lincoln is not on the show for the right reasons.  Somehow, the Governor of Virginia also got roped into the episode standing up and asking a debate question.  Awful.

Kufrin, who appears to be embarrassed by what transpired earlier, and who is again ticked off, pulls Chris aside at the afterparty and confronts him about hearing he was aggressive and verbally abusive towards the other men.  Becca is pissed again, so she says she needs a moment to collect herself, and the other men are fed up with Chris, now that they have less time with Becca.  When she does calm down she picks things up with Garrett (Does anyone else think he is the top choice right now, by the way she acts around him?) Eventually, she gives the group date rose though to Colton, which upsets Garrett and the others.

After what we think looked like an awkward one-on-one date with Leo (Who Becca would not connect at the start of the date, but by the end let her guard back down) this ‘Bachelorette’ apparently enjoyed it.  So, Leo got a rose.   When he returned to the house where the men were hanging out, Chris saw he received a rose.  That was the last straw for Chris!   He heads over to Becca’s hotel and her room.  This sealed his fate.  Once inside, he proclaims to Becca that he could see himself marrying her, after just last week saying he was considering going home because he wasn’t sure where their relationship was going.  Becca cuts him off and sends him home, saying that the two of them would never work out.

However, in the best one-on-one date we have seen Becca have all season, she finally gave Jason a chance.  Even though they attended a weird goth “Unhappy Hour”, when they finally sat down at a “dinner table” to discuss their lives, Jason revealed what it was like watching his father losing his grandmother to Alzheimer’s and Becca followed up with talking about losing her dad when she was only 19.   Jason also had the advantage of the producers lining up three of his best friends to surprise him on his date with Becca.  This humanized Jason even more, and made him look like a “stand-up” guy to Becca, and actually made him appear to be the most down-to-earth of all the men still in the running.

At the end of the episode, Becca once again did not want to have a cocktail party, which would have given Connor maybe one last chance to get some “me” time with her. However, Becca already knew, who she was going to send packing so she wanted to just have the rose ceremony.  When the ceremony went down it was Connor and Lincoln who were out.   This left only six: Jason, Colton, Garrett, Wills, Leo and Blake.

What did you think about Chris’ meltdown?  Who do you think has the best odds at getting the final rose now? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

GH’s Genie Francis Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This past Monday’s episode of General Hospital was one of the series best installmnets in recent months filled with long awaited confrontations and reveals.

The cast at the epicenter of it which included the talents of: James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Cynthia Watros (Nina), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava) all had stellar moments.

However, there is nothing like getting to see the icon herself, Genie Francis (Laura), do what she does best; the momma bear who is at once shocked and overjoyed that the son she grieved for over three years was very much alive, and the flip side of the anger over the fact that he let her, his sister, and most importantly his son, Spencer, continue to believe that he was dead, all for his vendetta and quest for revenge against Valentin Cassadine.

For it was Valentin who was the man who shot him and now is no longer the heir apparent to the Cassadine throne, now that the codicil said that it all belongs to Nikolas and Valentin was Helena’s son, not Mikkos’.

The thing of it is, everyone is great when Francis does her performances, and you could see that in the work of soap newcomer, Coloma, who you could just see through his eyes the disappointment and despair he caused his mother all these years, by Francis’ mesmerizing delivery.

Beat after beat in that episode, Genie brought the fire, the sorrow, and the wisdom, as Laura to every moment.  It was also well-written that Laura did not just have a happy reunion with her son, but a complex one fraught with issues to be ironed out.

Then, in the punctuation of that episode, was there anything better than watching Laura’s jaw-drop when Ava struts in telling Nikolas it’s time to tie-the-knot?

That is why Michael Fairman TV names Genie Francis “The Power Performance of the Week”.

Let us know in the comment section below, if you enjoyed Genie’s performances as much as we did.

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

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.
