We finally have our first pictures/video of the season from social media surface yesterday. Now granted, it’s not the greatest quality, but it’s not bad. And it didn’t capture everyone on the date either. In case you missed my tweets last night, Ben’s group date was at the Mirage yesterday where he met the girls and they ended up seeing Terry Fator’s show. Anyone that’s followed me long enough knows that’s my favorite Vegas show. I’ve seen it 5 times I think. Maybe 6. Whatever the case, that’s where Ben took the group of girls last night and then I’m sure the after party was somewhere at the Mirage in a closed off room since no other pictures surfaced that I’m aware of. Man, lucky bastards got to see Terry Fator. Hope they enjoyed him as much as I do. Although, by about the third or fourth time I saw him, you pretty much know what was coming. But it’s a really good show if you’ve never been. To be a ventriloquist is one thing, but to actually sing cover songs sounding like the actual singers without moving your mouth? That’s impressive.
So thanks to this girl Bethany Carlson for posting this on Facebook yesterday. Here’s the video of Ben greeting some of the girls at the Mirage. I can’t get the video to embed, so just click on the link to view it.
Not sure why her video cut off and we only get to see 6 of them approach him. Yes, Amber is still on the show (the first giddy girl greeting him), and Olivia is the 3rd girl (tall blonde) that hugs him. I’m sure of one of the other girls, but the other 3 we see in the video I can’t tell if it’s someone I have or not because it’s too grainy. I’d just be guessing. But I can tell you there are 14 girls left, there was a 1-on-1 Monday, and there’s a 1-on-1 today, and by the 4th episode, every girl should be getting a date, so there were 12 girls on the date yesterday. Today’s 1-on-1 I’m told is a wedding themed date, so some lucky girl will get to be in a wedding dress. Yippee. They seem to do this once a season now, so hopefully pictures of today’s date will get out. On to your “Daily Links…”
-David and Victoria Beckham are starting to get the divorce rumors swirling around them, and Posh Spice isn’t having any of it. She was Posh, right? I was just using process of elimination since I know she wasn’t Sporty or Scary. And I forget the other two nicknames. I guess when you’re married to one of the most popular men in the world, divorce rumors are always gonna pop up. Who knows if they’re true, but considering this was the summer of breakups, we shouldn’t be surprised by any this.
-The chick who wrote the “Twilight” books did a did a 10th Anniversary book and swaps genders of Bella and Edward. I honestly have no idea what any of that means since I’m not a 14 year old girl, but hey, have at it. I just hope the lunatic Twilight fans aren’t going to freak out over this and start burning books or something. Sounds like something they would do.
-Former “Bachelor” Bob Guiney, you know the guy who according to Mike Fleiss had sex with “5 ½ women” on the show (whatever that means), is now engaged again. Hey, third time’s a charm right? He got engaged to Estella on the show which ended up being a giant fraud and they barely lasted a couple months. Then got engaged and married to Rebecca Budig before divorcing after 5 years. Now, he’s engaged to Jessica Canyon. I have no idea who she is but if that isn’t a name straight out of the porn industry, I don’t know what is. Oh, I’m sure she’s not in porn. I’m just saying her name is.
-I guess I’m late to the party on this one, but I hope you all are prepared for the world to explode on Nov. 13th. That’s the day Justin Bieber and One Direction both release their album on the same day. Is there really any precautions we can take so we don’t all spontaneously combust that day? How can they do this to us? The same day, guys? Really? You couldn’t have waited by like a week? Ugh. Hopefully I can make it through this.
-Amy Schumer is hosting SNL this weekend for the first time ever and, well, you knew this was coming. She’s the hottest comic going right now, had a movie out this summer with a bunch of SNL people in it, so it was only fitting. Here are her promos with Vanessa Bayer:
-ABC Family channel is changing their name to “Freeform.” Uhhhhh, ok. Sure. Do what you need to do to. They can list all the BS reasons they want as to why they’re changing, but I think the main one is probably that it’s because the channel has shows that certainly aren’t considered “family shows” anymore. But Freeform? Who is the marketing genius that came up with that one?
-With the 30 year anniversary of Doc, Marty, and Jennifer traveling to the year 2015 in “Back to the Future 2,” the Oxford English Dictionary is now finally getting their sh** together and making hoverboard a word. Yes, the hoverboard that Marty used to outsmart Griff and his goons is now part of the official English language. I don’t need a dictionary to tell me what a word is anyway, since I’ve been saying hoverboard since that movie. Although when I just typed it in this paragraph, Microsoft Word has the red squiggly line underneath it. So screw you, MS Word. Won’t be doing that for long.
-Emma Watson has a new boyfriend named Roberto Aguire, and all Harry Potter fans I’m guessing are in full freak out mode. Hell, I’m not even a Harry Potter fan and I’M in full freak out mode. What? When did this happen? Why? She’s too good for him. Someone, do something about this right now and get back to me when it’s done. Thanks.
-Remember yesterday when I said this Jim Carrey dead ex-girlfriend story is probably going to get worse before it gets better? Not 24 hrs later, and we come to find out Cathriona White was still legally married at the time of her death. Carrey’s spokespeople saying he had no idea she was still married seems a bit flimsy at this point, no? Sure, maybe they were separated at the time which I’m sure was the case, but don’t say “Jim would never be seen with a married woman.” Well, he was.
-Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter Chelsea who “ran away” last month pretty much threw mommy under the bus in a recent interview. I guess now the whole “my daughter ran away, help me find her” story isn’t as solid as it once was. I mean, we’re a month removed from that roughly and the daughter basically doesn’t have anything good to say about Rosie. Not to mention calls her a phony.
-Holly Madison decided to throw shade at Hugh Hefner’s wife, Crystal Harris. Hey Holly, it may be easy now to do that, but just remember you WERE Crystal Harris at one point in your life. So I’m not sure where you feel like getting off on her makes you look any better. Saying Crystal is a strippers name? Great. Well you lived and slept with a man 60 years older than you for money. What’s worse?
-Vin Diesel must be just as excited as I was yesterday when it became official McDonald’s is serving breakfast all day now because, well, look at him. Holy crap. Is he pregnant? If not, he certainly must’ve been first in line to chow down on some hotcakes and sausage last night. Yowza, Vin. Will he able to fit in one of the cars for “Furious 8?”
