Looks like Donny Sheldon may have been relieved of his hosting gig by The Bachelor’s Nick Viall on this year’s upcoming episodes of the 2018 GH Nurses Ball!

According to TV Insider, Viall will host the annual red carpet festivities where there is always plenty of drama and laughs from the many residents of Port Charles attending the gala.

The Nurses’ Ball starts taping today on April 23rd, and the episodes will air the week of May 16-20.

Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) is also back for this year’s episodes as emcee who will move us through the the musical numbers and remind us all of why the Nurses’ Ball was created by GH in the first place; to help raise awareness and funds for HIV and AIDS.

So, what do you think of  one of the most notorious former ‘Bachelor’ hosting the GH Nurses Ball? Comment below.

Thats because they couldnt find a talented actor or used someone already on the show…

Sorry, I know everyone needs to make a living, but why does it have to be via GENERAL HOSPITAL?! I’d rather have a veteran actor/actress aboard for a job like this. I wasn’t impressed with Nick Viall in any way on DANCING WITH THE STARS and am just curious as to what his actual credentials are to stand on stage with so many of our TALENTED actors. Not too thrilled about this one.

I agree. Why not utilize a beloved, veteran actor/actress, instead of having to pay this guy? Funds are limited, use them wisely. SMH.

This news does not bode well to keep me tuned in. Oh wait, I haven’t watched regularly since Laura left the canvas in January. However, I think the Nurse’s Ball is a fine tradition for fans to enjoy the immense talents of the actors.

I love the Nurse’s Ball; although, it’s definitely not what it used to be-it’s chintzy and cheesy nowadays. They fill the room with filler actors and stand-ins. The event used to last a few days and everyone in Port Charles was at The Ball, celebrating and participating. While I appreciate the tradition, it’s not what it used to be..

Why not- Michael Fairman !
He should host the event…
He knows all of the actors they know him and simply put Michael Fairman would be the best !

I suspect the Bachelor has better ratings than GH, so this isn’t ABC propping that show as much as a move to get Bachelor viewers to tune into their ailing last soap.

One day, the joy of the Alzheimer’s story line. The next, news of a BACHELOR tie-in. You take the good, but I do not have to take the bad. Sorry GH and ABC.

I have never watched a single episode of “The Bachelor” or any of its spinoffs. Technically it does air here in Hell, but only as a means of torment. I don’t know why ABC is using GH to prop that dragonshit, but I’m sure Varni had something to do with it.

Why couldnt they use their own talent from Gh and have Aurora Media cover the event?

Not one positive comment, This is one of the first times a guest ‘star’ truly is cringe worthy both as an “actor” and as a regular person still milking his 15 min. of fame. Which expired long ago.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
