Considering the last two “Bachelor” seasons saw the ABC head shots and bios of the girls released on Dec. 4th and Dec. 3rd respectively, I fully expect we’ll get them released this week. When they do, I will have my annual Bio Breakdown column, along with a look-a-likes page for some of them. I’ve already got a few that I think look like some celebrities, but once I see their head shots, sometimes it makes it easier to see it. Being that this is the down time of the season since there’s nothing left to spoil and the show doesn’t air for another month, I get restless because I feel like I want/need to do more just to keep myself busy. As mentioned last week, we will have a whole new website lay out that we’ll unveil sometime before the season starts which I think you’ll like. So keep an eye out for that. And I’m thinking of possibly doing more video work in the future, but not related to the “Bachelor.” Recapping things is what I love doing the most. It’s what the foundation of this site is built on, so I’m thinking of a way of expanding it. But with digital media taking off, I feel that’s where I might be headed in the future. Maybe 5 minute video recaps of some of my favorite shows, or something like that. Still thinking it through, but I can pretty much guarantee you the future of this site will be headed towards videos and podcasting.
-This was brought to my attention last week so I’m guessing “Bachelor” and “Bachelor Pad” fans would be interested. I tweeted it out on Friday and the response was, well, what I expected. Former “Bachelor” contestant and “Bachelor Pad 2” winner Holly Durst, recently won Mrs. South Carolina…after 7 plastic surgeries. Those who have followed this column over the years were already aware of my thoughts on Holly and, ummmmm, yeah, can’t say I’m the least bit surprised she did this. The main reason is because she didn’t need to. She looked better before and this sets a horrible example. But hey, her life she can do what she wants. I just think she looks worse now and there are some serious issues there to get SEVEN surgeries done at once. That’s venturing into Heidi Montag territory. And her husband let her do this? Wow. Hope winning a beauty pageant was worth doing all that to yourself. Sad.
-It sucked to see Joe get the boot last week on “Survivor,” especially after that grueling immunity challenge where he passed out. In his exit interview with Gordon Holmes, Joe says he actually knew he was going to, and basically alerted Probst to the fact. Of course, again, none of this was ever shown on TV and Probst never referenced it in his weekly interview last week. Ugh. Hate it when that happens.
-Former “Friday Night Lights” star Connie Britton says she would be 100% on board for a reunion, if creator Peter Berg came up with a good enough story to tell. Us die hard FNL fans have already spoken and many of us don’t want any sort of reunion. The show ended exactly how it should’ve, and anything in addition wouldn’t do the series justice. Not to mention, Kyle Chandler has always been against it for those reasons, so sorry Connie, ain’t happening. You stick to dealing with Markus Keane and dealing with Juliette Barnes’ drama and leave FNL alone.
-Brandi Glanville admits she came back to RHOBH for one reason and one reason only: the money. Well hey, at least she admits it. That’s more than I can say for most reality stars. Although Sean recently wrote a blog post admitting that he and Catherine did their latest reality show for the money, so I guess that makes two. Look, we all know these people do it for the money. It’s the ones who pretend like they don’t that bother us. Just admit it.
-Taylor Swift has added yet another star to her entourage, and it’s Blake Lively. They hung out in Australia during the final leg of her tour with koalas and kangaroos just to make me jealous. Keep rubbing it in why don’t you?
-Speaking of Taylor, the 2016 Grammy nominations were announced this morning, and she’s basically up for everything – Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Squad, Best Living Human Ever, and Greatest Concert Known to Mankind. So yeah, I fully expect her to win every award she’s up for because she’s Taylor Swift and we’re not.
-Over the weekend after one of their performances, Maksim Chmerkovsky and Peta Murgatroyd got engaged. This I believe is Maks 17th engagement, but this one will totally stick. Ok, maybe not 17. I lost count with how many women he’s been linked to since his career took off with DWTS. Just in the last few years he was engaged to Karina Smirnoff, that ended, started dating Peta, that ended, started banging Kate Upton for a while, that ended, and now he’s back with Peta and engaged. Oh, and mix in the time when he was the “Bachelor” for the Ukraine version and was with someone on that show for a hot minute. Good luck, Maks.
-The latest rumors say that Selena Gomez and Niall Horan from “One Direction” were hooking up at Jenna Dewan Tatum’s 35th birthday party. Of course, Justin Bieber responded to this by posting a throwback picture of him and Selena together because he’s Mr. Jealous. I don’t care if Selena decided to start dating the cookie monster at this point. Just as long as it isn’t Justin, the world is a better place.
-I don’t watch “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but a clip from last night’s episode where Caitlyn gave Kylie underwear with her face on it is pretty much all I need to know about this show. Really? Was that necessary? Not because it’s 1000% creepy but, well, the odds that Kylie even wears underwear are probably like a billion to one. Seems like a wasted gift to me.
-Did you catch Ryan Gosling hosting SNL this weekend? Great sketch where he basically lost it laughing at Kate McKinnon’s character who was re-telling a story of getting abducted by aliens. SNL is always best when hosts and/or cast members break character and start laughing. Jimmy Fallon was the king at it.
-A little more has been leaked about the new Star Wars movie opening in just 11 days. There was a panel discussion over the weekend, and TVGuide.com has a list of 10 things they learned from it. I’m guessing most people are happy with no Jar Jar Binks, the worst character ever created. But no ewoks? Not even a cameo? Boooooooooooooo.
-Actress Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett O’Connor on “Nashville,”got engaged over the weekend to her boyfriend that I’ve never heard of. Well, one thing’s for sure about Clare/Scarlett, she likes her men with that wacky hairdo. First Gunnar, now this guy? Probably why she’ll inevitably dump her boring doctor boyfriend on the show. Not edgy enough.
-And finally, the Buffalo Bills fans haven’t had much to cheer about since sh**ting the bed in four straight Super Bowls in the early 90’s. That is, until now. Granted, their win yesterday only moved them to 6-6, but it moved this couple to orgasm apparently. WARNING: If you don’t wish to watch two people in Bills’ jerseys having sex in a parking lot, don’t click on that link. Points for at least keeping the jerseys on, no?
