The Bold and the Beautiful In Talks With Qantas To Bring Show For Location Shoot In Australia!

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the soap on the move in recent years with lush location shoots in countries all around the world.

No other American soap opera has been able to do what the CBS Daytime drama has.  Now it looks like Australia is on the radar as one of the next location shoots B&B is aiming for.  According to MSN.com Australia:  “The Bold and The Beautiful is in talks with Qantas to bring the hugely popular series to Australia.”

A source close to the series shared:  “We are going to Australia that’s for sure. We are just not sure when. We will send a location scout and write the story about the destination.  We are looking for iconic, interesting historic authentic locations.”

Show Producers told AAP (The Australian Associated Press) they were not sure how long the show would stay down under:  “It’s all about the story. It depends on the storyline. We are thinking about Budapest, Poland, and Flemish Belgium. But the only one that’s sure is Australia. We don’t know when it will happen. It may be 2017.”

One intriguing thing to note: The Bold and the Beautiful premiered in 1987.  If the series were to shoot in Australia in 2017, it would create quite an occasion and another milestone for the series, which would then turn 30 years old.

So, what would be a good story to bring B&B to Australia? We know Ivy, and her portrayer Ashleigh Brewer hail from there!  What do you think about BOLD’s ability to make locations shoots happen around the globe?  It would seem that Aussie based airline company Quantas would be perfect marketing partner.  Comment below!

Not really. Eric and Ivy fathers are brothers, Ivy would be first cousins with Eric’s children, like Rick and Ridge, but since Ridge isn’t Eric’s bio son, there is no direct blood relationship between Ivy and Thomas– they are simply second cousins in name only.

These location shoots are always ruined by these crappy Liam triangle stories, in fact the whole show has been ruined by them. If Macy were to be found alive there I’d look forward to it 🙂

I watch sometimes while at home during my lunch. I like how the show goes on location-very rare these days. Have to change the channel when Wyatt is on. What a wimp.

Liam is the wimpiest man on the show, with his brother Wyatt #2. I guess the Stallion just doesn’t sire strong male heirs. Those two brothers need to sit down and talk it through and quit trying to share the same women.

Applaud location shoots. Anything to restore the lustre of daytime. But sad over B&B’s lame and endless triangle stories. I would welcome a genuine mystery or, as a poster suggested, discovery of a lost character and launch of a new plot course. Also wish CBS Daytime loved the location shoots when its other soaps — ATWT and GL — were left in limbo those years before cancellation.

Way I see location shots– vacation for the actors lol
The actors will love it !

Would be fun to see the cast outdoors sweating and sticky, their hair flopped from the humidity, if they go in the summer it’s really hot/humid there..

I have watched bold since it started back in 1987, and before it i watched Another world. I also watch Days of our lives ,and Young and the Restless. I would love to see Bold and the Beautiful come to do some filming In Australia. It had a lot of Australians watch it as it is on 4.30 on channel 10 which is prime watching time. I tape all my shows on my Foxtel and never miss any shows.

I love when they go on location but I agree lets have a mystery or something. Im tired of the same old triangles and would somebody please give that poor Katie with the heart condition a kick in the pants, I’m so sick of her and her insecurities. I like Katie’s acting but she needs to get out of the past as the little girl standing in the window watching her two beautiful sisters Donna & Brooke going out on dates. She needs to stop with her Daddy’s & Mommy’s favorite stuff and realize she is just as beautiful and… Read more »

I’d prefer better writing instead of pretty background shoot locales.

Please stop the madness called Quinn! Better writing please.!!! Now Liam thinks he is Adam and Quinn is Eve?? That is just so stupid. Give him medical help–that is so irresponsible of B & B.

Give Brooke a great storyline please! TV going off again.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
