Getting down to the nitty gritty. We are the final 6 girls for Nick’s season. As reported here last week, they are in the Bahamas for episode 7. Yesterday Chris Harrison was Instagramming video of a seaplane arriving in Miami, which made me think maybe that’s where episode 7 would be. But later last night, someone spotted him at a hotel in Bimini, and that confirmed the Bahamas location. So yeah, definitely weird they went to the Bahamas in back-to-back “Bachelor” seasons, although in completely different places on the island. So I know your big question now is, “Who are the Final 6” girls? Unfortunately, I don’t want to answer that for you just yet. I’m sure some photos will get out this week of dates in the Bahamas, so you’ll know who at least some of them are when that happens. But I’m pretty sure I have an idea who the four are who will get hometown dates, so once they leave the Bahamas and before hometown dates begin, that’s when I’ll let you know. I mean, you’re gonna get your answer at some point of who’s left in the episode-by-episode spoilers once the season is over. It’s ok to not have to know everything as it’s happening. There’s been a lot spoiled on social media this season, but as is the case every season, once they go out of the country, things start lightening up on the social media front. Which is good for me, since it makes it more of a surprise when I reveal it. If pics get out this week, great. If not, then I’ll let you know who the final four is before they start filming.
I will say this: social media can certainly be tricky. It’s very easy to follow the girls you know are home and see them all following each other. That happens every season. To me, those aren’t really spoilers since everyone can clearly see that. But as I always say, I don’t get my “spoilers” per se from social media. Never have and never will because I can’t tell you how many instances where it looks like one thing on social media, but that doesn’t end up being the case. Sometimes social media can be 100% right. And sometimes it’s not. Hence the reason my spoilers aren’t ever based on who’s following who, or who’s being followed by who, or who’s commenting on who. Sure, there are girls that were eliminated in the first few episodes who are all over Instagram now following others from the show. But honestly, they’re kinda irrelevant to the season, hence the reason the producers are allowing them to. I do know the producers are cracking a liiiiiiitle bit harder this season on social media stuff. Lets see if all of them oblige.
So you’ve got this picture from last week that was taken of the group date in St. Thomas that I tweeted out on Wednesday:
(SPOILER): Get back from lunch, check IG, and see this group date happening: pic.twitter.com/QZ6EP3CoSm

If you can identify who those 6 are (which I haven’t seen anyone do yet on Twitter or email), then at least you have an idea of who could be left. I have some other group pictures from St. Thomas that I haven’t posted yet that would probably clear a few things up. However, I’m waiting. A lot will depend on this week and how much gets out publicly. Either pics will get out and you’ll know because I’ll retweet or post them myself. Or nothing will get out and by the end of the week, I’ll just tell you who the final four are. Also as I tweeted out last night, there are 30 girls on Nick’s season this year. Right now I have 24 of them, 17 of which I’ve released on Nick’s Girls page. Are the final 6 all girls I’ve already released? Possibly. Of all the guesses I’ve seen on Twitter and email, there’s one common occurrence that I expected to happen and I know it’s happening because of what people are seeing on social media. And that particular guess is 100% wrong. In addition, we definitely have a villain this season, we’ve got a couple girls who were eliminated during group dates, and one entrance on night one where someone rode in on a camel, because she heard Nick likes to “hump.” Yes, he does. Especially within the franchise. With the Elizabeth Sandoz revelation earlier this month, that’s now 7 from the franchise he’s had sex with, and that’s BEFORE he goes to the fantasy suite with any of his girls this season. Nick’s gonna hit double digits! Oh wait, he only looks at sex like “fiance type” stuff, right? Now that’s laughable.
-Tom Hanks has been in some pretty memorable movies with some memorable characters. Even won a couple of Oscars for his work. However, after this past weekend, I think I will now always remember him as David Pumpkins. The skit made absolutely no sense, nor was it supposed to. But that’s what made it so great. Totally random, completely out of the blue, really no logical explanation for what the hell that was, yet, I’ve watched it like 10 times. After last week’s show, Lin Manuel Miranda’s monologue song seemed to run through my head all day. Now, this one is.
-So Taylor Swift performed for the first time in 2016 in Austin this weekend and I was giddy. No, I wasn’t there but I might as well have been. Thanks to social media, I was able to see clips on Twitter and enjoyed every moment of it. Especially when she sang “This is What You Came For,” as I’m sure it was a slight dig at Calvin Harris. Ahhhhh, Tay Tay sure knows how to turn the knife once it’s plunged into someone’s heart, doesn’t she?
-On some not-so-happy Taylor Swift news, the deposition against a Denver radio DJ was released over the weekend and, well, dude went Donald Trump on her. Remember, this guy got fired from his gig when Taylor reported he groped her, then he sued her for defamation. Then she countersued. Now they’re doing depositions. This guy should probably quit while he’s ahead and settle. I highly doubt he wants to go up against her and her legal team in court.
-Kim Kardashian was on “60 Minutes” last night and didn’t really say much we didn’t already know, but she did admit she’s basically famous because of social media. However, she still thinks that she has a “talent” because she built a brand off her name and taking duck face selfies. If having looks is what defines talent, then yeah, I guess she does. I just don’t see it that way. I’ve built a brand for myself, but it’s off my writing. Is because she’s naturally pretty and models considered a talent? I guess we’re just arguing semantics at this point. Whatever the case, she should be sending half her money every month to Ray J.
-Tom Cruise says that discussions for a “Top Gun 2” have been ongoing, but nothing is finalized yet. I know Hollywood is in love with the reboots, especially from 80’s movies, but do we really need this one 30 years later? Maverick is now a crazy Scientologist going back to flight school and Iceman is 80 lbs overweight? Didn’t SNL do a skit of this one time? That’s basically what the movie would end up being if they made it.
-You know I love me some local TV news bloopers, and well, this one is right up there. A newscaster’s teleprompter forgot one letter to a word and it completely shot this guy off the rails that he could never come back from. Hey everyone, check your panties!
-John Mayer is spreading his seed across Hollywood again, this time zoning in on Demi Lovato. We all know musicians pretty much get as much tail as they want, but this guy takes the cake. I mean, how many women does this guy run through in Hollywood on a weekly/monthly basis? He’s got to be approaching some sort of record now, right? Like with him, it’ll start becoming who HASN’T John Mayer slept with in Hollywood.
-Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa have filed for divorce, shortly after police were called on two different occasions to their house for domestic violence issues. If there was ever a week where a Chicago legend being investigated for sexual assault would go unnoticed, it’s this one. That whole city is on such a high right now, I’m guessing they don’t even care. And if they win it all? Forget it. They’ll probably invite Scottie to the downtown parade.
-Chris Hemsworth took to social media to mock certain media outlets who said his marriage was on the rocks. How come Chris seems like the likable, down to earth brother while Liam somehow can’t quit Miley? Explain that. Wait, did Liam and Miley get married on one of those private getaways, or that’s what’s been reported? Or they haven’t tied the knot yet? Or no one knows because Miley is pansexual? Good luck with that, Liam. Should be one hell of a marriage.
-And finally, Tara Reid appeared at the Maxim Halloween costume party wearing this. Ummmm, sooooooooo where’s her costume? Going ask yourself to a costume party is highly unoriginal, Tara. There’s skinny model body and then there’s completely unhealthy looking. Take a guess as to which one Tara is. Yikes.
