THE BACHELORETTE: The Final Four

Courtesy/ABC

A virgin, a guy who “likes” controversial and seemingly right wing Instagram posts, an insecure hottie, and the seemingly to-good-to-be-true nice guy are all in the running for Becca’s heart after the smoke cleared on Monday night’s installment of The Bachelorette!

After the awful trip to Richmond, Virginia as the backdrop for her dates, this week saw Becca take her men to the Bahamas – and for this week’s twist – the roses will be given out on the dates with the recipients becoming the final four, and moving on to the all important “hometowns” were we meet the ‘fam!’

The first one-on-one date goes to Colton, which upsets Blake greatly.  After Becca (the make out bandit) takes the man she acknowledges is the hunk of the group out on a boat for their date, she says “He could just pick me up and do whatever he wants to do.”   Next, out of nowhere, comes a guy on to their boat, with some conch!  It’s known as the “Bahamian Viagra”, and as Colton and Becca eat some of this worm-like aphrodisiac, what Becca doesn’t know is that getting her guy, Colton all sexed up, doesn’t mean he is going to have sex with her!  Why? Because he is a virgin.  And in the moment ‘we have all been waiting for the whole episode’, during their after-date “dinner”, Colton confesses to Becca: “I haven’t had that many girlfriends, that many dates, because of sports, because of that, I still am … I am a virgin.”

Becca is clearly taken aback at first and says, “Really?” What’s a girl to do next? She hightails it out of the scene with Colton saying she needs a moment, while he sweats it out that this in the end of the line for him.  Things take a positive turn when Becca returns to the table and Colton tells her, he isn’t waiting for marriage, he’s just waiting for “the right heart.” Becca gives him a rose, and when he shows back up in the hotel where the other suitors await, they are visibly pissed off that the “virgin” was not tossed out of the competition.

The next one-on-one date goes to Garrett, and leaves Blake still fuming, and on edge.  Becca takes Garrett flying around the Bahamas. They then make out in the ocean.  Garrett, who is always up and fun with Becca, tells her he rarely lets things get him down.  When pressed over dinner about what went wrong in his relationship with is ex-wife, he later tells Becca the thing we think she has been waiting to hear: “Everything that I see in you is, like, everything that I’m looking for in a wife, and I’m beginning to fall in love with you.” Becca is over the moon.

Next, Blake gets the last one-on-one date card ending his misery.  Leaving Leo-Wills-Jason for the three-on-one date, and you kinda knew what would happen there.  For Blake’s date, he goes to a “impromptu” Baha Men’s concert, where he proceeds to show off his dance prowess – he’s got the moves.  Later alone on the beach with Becca, Blake admits his “freak out” of not getting a date card.  Becca answers with: “In a way, I do sympathize with Arie, because I couldn’t understand how you could feel so strongly for multiple people. I see how difficult it probably was for him at the end.”  That doesn’t make Blake feel too good to hear her say that!

When it’s time for his ‘vulnerable’ moment, while at their dinner date, he talks about his rough upbringing with his parents, who are divorced, and how his mother was actually having an affair and fell in love with his former basketball coach/English teacher, while married to his dad.  Blake tells Becca he is in love with her!  She is all smiles.  Later in her own confessional, Becca admits she is love with Blake, too.

Now the agonizing three-on-one date: Leo is given the boot, then an upset Wills is next, leaving, of course, Jason who gets the final rose.

So there you have your final four:  Jason, Colton, Garrett, and Blake.  Who will it be?  The promo for next week looks like trouble ahead for Colton and Becca, featuring the return of Tia!  Share your pick on who you think Becca will choose via the comment section below.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Trevor Donovan, Wayne Brady, Daniel Durant & Gabby Windey Impress Judges On ‘Elvis Night’

In the second episode of Dancing with the Stars new season exclusively on Disney+, it was ‘Elvis Night’ and the couples put on a show for the judges performing to songs by ‘The King of Rock and Roll.”

Before the stars and their pro partners hit the ballroom floor, hosts Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, revealed that since dancer, Daniella Karagach tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday night.  Therefore, her celebrity partner Joseph Baena had to mask up through the evening and perform his planned routine with a temporarily replacement, Alexis Warr. As well, a few others in the cast who were noted to be in close proximity of Karagach, also wore masks during the live show and their performances.

Here’s a rundown of a few of the performances that wowed the judges for various reasons.

Trevor Donovan (ex-Days, 92010) and Emma Slater – The duo danced the Rumba to the Elvis Classic “Always on My Mind.” Donovan, who keeps letting us know in the pre-package that he is not comfortable as a dancer, did a complete 180 from opening night and delivered what the judges deemed a very sexy routine with Emma. The judges (Carrie Ann, Bruno, Len and Derek) were impressed by Trevor’s hip rotation, his arm extensions through the dance, and of course his abs! Derek Hough said it best in his feedback to Donovan following the routine, “Remember when you were scared of dance? You love dance.” Score: 30 out of 40

Wayne Brady (ex-The Bold and the Beautiful, Let’s Make a Deal) and Witney Carson –  Dancing the Jive to “Burning Love”, Brady, who is great at impersonations anyway, brought some of the Elvis moves, facial expressions and ticks to the routine. In the pre-package, Wayne revealed he has trouble with one of his knees. The performance was highly-entertaining given the choreography and closed the show.  The judges told Wayne to pace himself and protect his knees, because he is a wonderful dancer and they want to see him make it through the entire season. Score: 30 out of 40

Gabby Windey (The Bachelotette) and Val Chmerkovskiy – The dance duo took to the floor to perform a classic Viennese Waltz to “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” During the pre-package, Windey, who is also a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, felt she was ‘lost in space” doing so many twirls, but she clearly got it all under control and with Val by her side, her new fiancé Eric Schwer in the house. Val and Gabby delivered a stellar performance.  The ending of the routine was punctuated by Windey walking over to Schwer, who entered the edge of the dance floor, to give him a smooch. Score: 32 out of 40

Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart – Taking on Elvis’ “King Creole”, this dance duo performed the Jive.  It is amazing to witness from the pre-package to the actual performance, how Britt communicates with Daniel, who is deaf, and how Durant is able to feel the vibrations, watch Stewart’s face and inhabit a character so well, without barely any missteps. The most noticeable, and the most difficult challenge posed to Durant, is dancing in the side-by-side sections where precision/synch is always favored upon by the judges. In the DWTS audience were Durant’s CODA co-stars, Oscar Winners Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur, rooting hm on. It was an impressive performance! Of note: how much did we love Durant’s two moms showing up in rehearsal and dancing some moves from the routing with him! Score: 29 out of 40

WWE SMACKDOWN: Roman Reigns Officially Makes Sami Zayn ‘Honorary Uce’ In Heart-Stopping Moment

Talk about your soap opera and great performances!  Last Friday’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown on Fox featured what could go down as a classic opening segment involving The Head of the Table/WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns and tag-along member of the ‘Bloodline’, Sami Zayn.

With the entire Bloodline in the ring and present (The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, Reigns and honorary member, Zayn) it set the stage for a potentially dangerous situation for Zayn.  Even though Sami is a heel, the fans were in Zayn’s corner for this every step of the away, if you just listened to the pop from the crowd.

First, Reigns demanded for Solo Sikoa to acknowledge him, since the youngest members of the Usos is the new enforcer of the Bloodline. Solo did just that in short order, and as the group was preparing to make their ring exit, Zayn stopped The Bloodline as he wanted his chance to acknowledge Reigns as his Tribal Chief, too.  That prompted Reigns to question Zayn as to why he was up in their business and wearing the ‘Bloodline’ t-shirt.

Suddenly, it became apparent that Zayn was going to be set-up to be the victim of a beatdown by the family. The moments were so tense that you honestly could not have guessed which way this was going to go – but things were looking bleak for Sami.

Reigns verbally assaulted Zayn for hanging around and wearing ‘The Bloodline’s’ shirt. Roman ordered Zayn to take off the shirt as Zayn’s enemy number one, Jey Uso, demanded the same thing of him.  Next, Uso ripped the t-shirt off Zayn and the audience was scared for Sami.  However, Reigns instead presented Zayn with a new t-shirt making him officially an “Honorary Uce”.  For those who wondered, “uce” is the Samoan slang term for “brother”.  Touched and relieved, Zayn celebrated the moment with Jimmy Uso, Sikoa and then, even hugging Reigns, while Jey Uso looked on mad-as-all-get-out.

The story arc was played brilliantly by Reigns who can play disingenuous like nobody’s business, and Zayn, who can play drama and comedy as the “Bloodline” wannabe.

There are several story angles that could stem from this – one being the obvious – a feud between Jey Uso and Zayn- plus, just how long Sami will be included in the Bloodline, before it all goes south on him.

You can watch the segment below, and then a hilarious video posted on Twitter by Zane on Sunday to Kelly Clarkson’s “A Moment Like This.”

So, did you think the Bloodline was going to turn on Sami? What did you think of Zayn and Reigns work in the opening segment of WWE Friday Night Smackdown? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
