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.

BOO! Hiss! and WHY?
Why is ABC always trying to prop up The Bachelor?

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.

Nicolas Bechtel Returns To General Hospital

General Hospital fans were greeted with good news this week with the reveal that scene-stealer Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) is back taping new episodes of the ABC sudser as of last week.

This means look for Spencer Cassadine to become part of his grandmother Laura’s (Genie Francis) story, and perhaps the switcheroo that the man posing as Kevin is actually his evil twin, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom)!

Seems like the oh-so-bright Spencer just might either be headed for trouble, or will be smart enough to figure out what is going down … but we will shall see!

The last time Bechtel appeared on GH was back in in August of 2017.  The character of Nikolas was the facilitator in the last time Genie Francis exited the show under much fan uproar.  Laura was written-off in story to tend to Spencer in Europe when the youngster broke his legs.

Yesterday, Nicolas posted a cute pic with his co-stars Genie Francis and Jon Linstrom and stating: “Never a dull moment around here. Selfies  

So, excited to hear Spencer C will be on the Port Charles scene soon? Comment below.
