Back at it again with…Nick Viall?

Just when you finally thought it was over, somehow Nick Viall has managed to wiggle his way onto another network series. Instead of catching Nick every Monday night at nine chase after the same type of women to eventually get left behind, you can now catch him following the lead of yet another woman on this seasons Dancing With the Stars. Yes, that’s right! Just this past week, Nick Viall performed for his very first time on Dancing With the Stars with his partner Peta Murgatroyd, and let me tell you, not too many people were impressed with his moves!

The 34-year-old reality star (if that’s what you want to call him), who just got engaged to Vanessa during his season of the Bachelor, performed a Cha-cha-cha choreography and scored a sad 24 out of 40. While the judges on the show stated that Nick held potential, they had a lot of criticism for his feet and hand movements. Funny enough, it wasn’t only the judges who felt like Nick did not do an impressive job! The Star Trek actor William Shatner had the furthest thing of words of encouragement for Nick as a contestant on the show. Just after the premier, Shatner Tweeted “My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?”. I guess he’s not the only one who thinks Nick’s day in the spotlight needs to come to an end, permanently.

It would appear that it has become somewhat of a trend to quit your day job, pursue love on national television followed by competing in a dance competition with no experience, because believe it or not, Nick is not the only former Bachelor or Bachelorette to do this! Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe and Chris Soules have all taken their shot at competing in Dancing With the Stars!
So who’s in with William Shatner and who’s still #TeamNick all the way?

Love her or Hate her…

Love her or hate her, you simply can’t avoid her! We’re talking about the twenty-four year old Corinne Olympios from this season of The Bachelor. From coming onto the show and disclaiming that she has a nanny, owns a multimillion-dollar business and still lives at home, you can’t help but laugh a little when thinking about her possibly becoming engaged to Nick at the end of this season. With all that aside, Corinne has managed to make this one of the most entertaining seasons of the Bachelor thus far. From her random naps, quitting group dates because she doesn’t do “chores” to being completely outspoken on group dates and in her interviews, she definitely has a personality that belongs on reality TV! Here are our top 10 favorite Corinne moments:

When Corinne took the group photoshoot into

her own HANDS…

When Corrine’s dad asked her if she was

in love with Nick and she answered yes followed

by this statement….

When Corinne couldn’t understand why everyone

was shocked to find out that she had a nanny, when

the women there are competing to become wives

and eventually mothers….

When she realized the farm life wasn’t for her…

When she ripped on Taylor’s profession and

degree from Johns Hopkins University (one

of the most difficult and prestigious

schools in the world)

When Corinne’s just casually bought Nick a $3,000

outfit during her hometown date…

When she got plastered on the group

volleyball date!

When she ordered her own blow-up bouncy

house to the mansion and threw her own

party in there with Nick in front of the

other women

When she made it clear that she needs to be in

the spotlight 24/7…

And last but not least…this:

10 Honest Thoughts About The Bachelor Season 21

It’s Monday night, which means time to put on some annoyingly addictive TV. We’re talking about the shows that you hate that you watch but you can’t go a week without keeping up to date. For us, that’s the Bachelor! I’ve been watching this show for years, and even though I find the dynamics and environment completely unrealistic in finding pure and relatable love, I can’t help but watch it and get attached to each contestant with every season that passes! So as an avid fan, I’m writing about some of my reoccurring thoughts and impressionable moments I’ve had during Nick’s season as the bachelor!

#1 Who is in charge of casting these women?!

nick-viall-shark-costume-promos-f914ae98-0225-48d5-8b5e-c2356e074d99

From girls getting out of the limos in beautiful gowns, to wearing dolphin costumes, to another woman dismounting a camel while saying “I like to hump”, I seriously question whether half these women are here to actually “find love” or just for the show to make some money by ranking in some views.

#2 How do women have this many gowns?

bachelorseason1

This may be something that only I find myself asking pretty frequently throughout each season, but I’m serious! How do these women afford/ own all the gowns and cocktail dresses they need to wear on each rose ceremony and dates! They either borrow from all their girlfriends or take loans out from the banks to be able to buy all these amazing and bedazzled dresses!

#3 Nick’s level of casualty

3D2F593B00000578-4232132-image-a-40_1487270348085

Speaking of dressing up in gowns, is it just me or do you not find Nick particularly casually dressed throughout the entire season? During last week’s episode, Nick went on a one on one date with Danielle M. At the end of their evening they went for dinner and Danielle came out in this sexy red romper while Nick sat at dinner in a hoodie. Come on, you have a stylist on set with you, you aren’t paying for your clothing, can’t you put in a little bit of effort with your clothing at least?

#4 Why do they never eat the food

in front of them?

Of course when we go on dates, especially first dates, we tend to order food that is more attractive to eat! However, every single time Nick brings a woman on a dinner date, they end up sitting at a table with a plate of food in front of them and it’s never touched! Why take her to dinner if the food is just going to sit on the table looking all pretty?

#5 How much are they paying Corinne

to be on the show?

Whether you love her or hate her, you can’t help but laugh a little and enjoy the presence of the inappropriate and over the top Corinne. From her total diva moves, like refusing to clean up poop, her constant naps, and her ridiculously high (and clearly uncomfortable) Louboutin’s she is definitely high maintenance to say the least. However, somehow or another she’s managed to make it this far, but I’m not too certain it’s for her remarkable personality and maybe a little bit more for her Daddy’s million dollar company.

#6 The extravagant dates

Let’s be honest, if a guy picked you up from your house, brought you on a helicopter ride, spoiled you all day with champagne, hot tubs and delicious food, don’t you think the atmosphere itself would be doing a little bit too much work in making you fall for the guy right in front of you? Romance and sparks would definitely be flying if I felt like a princess on every date! But how about doing things that are more relatable like buying groceries and cooking a dinner together?

#7 The moment Corrine accused Vanessa

of not having depth..

This was an epic moment in last week’s episode! Corinne was feeling insecure that Vanessa got a one on one date and even congratulated her by calling her a “lucky bitch” with a snark attitude, and instead of distracting herself, she decided to rip on Vanessa’s character and call her shallow! Depth is working with special needs kids, it’s definitely not someone who works for her Dad and has a nanny at home! Gave me a good laugh!

#8 Leaving people on the island…

Every single season a moment like this seems to take place, and let me tell you it’s hilarious every time! As if going on a two on one wasn’t bad enough, one of the girls ends up getting dumped on the date and then watches as her ex-boyfriend gets to go off on a boat or helicopter ride as she sits by HERSELF on a deserted island. This is always one of the most dramatic scenes of the whole show.

#9 Nick do you need a tissue?

Just one? How about ten? This man is more emotional than me, and that’s saying a lot. I know this sounds slightly hypocritical considering most women search for a man who is more emotional and shows his feelings, but come on! Pull your shit together. If you’re crying every two seconds and second guessing if this whole process if even going to work, don’t you think that the women sitting in front of you, competing with each other to win you over are going to feel even more insecure? Take a breath and collect yourself, and grow a pair!

#10 Announcing the next bachelorette before

the show ends…

3D3586D000000578-4224212-image-a-21_1487093080430

What is up with this? I was on Facebook and I stumbled upon multiple articles saying that Rachel was going to be the next Bachelorette! This totally threw me off and made me not watch Monday’s episode with as much intensity because I already know she doesn’t make it! Why can’t they just wait until after the final rose episode to announce it? They take away all the fun! But PS. I am super excited about the news and think she’s going to be a great bachelorette because she’s intelligent, beautiful and so well put together!

Welcome Back Curb, We’ve Missed You

If you haven’t already heard, after a five year hiatus, Curb Your Enthusiasm is coming back for another season! The news was broken by HBO and Larry David in a Tuesday morning press release, and although we don’t know when the season will kick off, we hope it’s before Game of Thrones ends so we can spend an hour crying over some major character’s death and then the next half hour laughing hysterically at Larry’s antics.

Asked why he decided to reboot the longest running show on HBO, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

Classic LD humility, but not really true. Since 2011, which is when season 8 ended, David co-wrote and starred in the HBO film Clear History with John Hamm (2013), wrote and co-starred in his own Broadway show with Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld), made us crack up as Bernie Sanders on SNL, and probably executed dozens of flawless chat-and-cuts that were sadly not caught on film.

If you’re a big Larry David nerd have the patience to tolerate him for longer than half an hour, Bill Simmons did a podcast back in summer 2015 where David hinted at a new season of Curb (and brilliantly defended the Seinfeld finale.)

Curb, like Seinfeld and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, is a show that could easily go on forever because nothing really ever moves forward. The characters never mature in any significant way, never learn from their lessons, and while the relationships may change, you know they’ll all die single eventually. Some people love that, some people don’t, but Larry David sure as hell doesn’t care either way.

So, what to expect from season 9? More of the same old takes on fresh social bullshit, of course. And with the world getting more and more ridiculous in 2016 (think selfie sticks/memes/drones/dating apps), prepare to laugh a lot. Although David has always tried to make his topics timeless, season 9 of Curb has the potential to be like @Seinfeld2000 for real.

A few ideas for season 9. (These are free, Larry, free! And gold, Jerry, gold!)

  • Larry looks for a way to get his constant rage out and accidentally joins ISIS after watching a recruitment video.
  • Larry doesn’t understand why “Damn, Daniel” is so funny and annoys everyone about it.
  • Larry gets ghosted on Tinder and demands justice any way he can get it.
  • Larry is tired of Suzie documenting every moment with her drone camera on a ski trip so he destroys it and frames Jeff.
  • Larry tries to score tickets for Hamilton and is convinced he’s being sabotaged.
  • Larry sees Cheryl on Bumble and gets frustrated that he can’t message her.

Buckle up and prepare to be simultaneously crying of laughter, slightly offended, and very disgusted. Welcome back Curb Your Enthusiasm!

Which Game of Thrones woman are you?

In exactly ONE MONTH, Game of Thrones is returning for another season of violence, drama, drinking, sex, magic, sex, dragons, and sex, and it’s going to be sexy. If you’ve watched all five seasons of this show and are still under the impression that the men of Westeros hold the power, then you need to check yourself. Yes, the battle for the Iron Throne is fought between men, but behind every man is a woman ten times as powerful and badass pulling the strings. Even forced to walk naked through the pre-sewer system streets of King’s Landing, Cersei still has more power than Tommen. And Melisandre could ask to take Stannis’ balls home and he would gladly wrap them up in a doggie bag for her.

We’ve put together a list of our favourite women from Westeros to Essos and broken down their personalities in modern-day terms. Read ahead to see which Game of Thrones woman you are!

Sansa Stark

sansa

Boy, you sure grew up fast. You’re a naïve dreamer at heart, fantasizing about settling down with your prince charming in some idyllic castle in some fantasyland. Unfortunately, things rarely seem to work out like they do in your dreams. You rarely stay in relationships for too long, and when you do, they’re with abusive bums who are no good for you.

Every year you think you’ve grown up and moved past your childish errors, only to make the same ol’ mistakes. You are constantly being manipulated. Whenever you think you’re being clever or brave or sexy, it’s only because someone else is making you feel that way for their own ends.

Ideal first date: Dinner at the mall food court. You’ll pay because he forgot his debit card. You’ve learned to settle for less.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: Spent crocheting your boyfriend a scarf.

Your job: Selling stuff on Etsy.

Cersei Lannister

cersei

Family comes first. In every sense. You don’t have many friends, and the few that you do have you wouldn’t hesitate to manipulate to get ahead. Everybody knows not to cross you, and even though there’s plenty of juicy gossip, nobody would dare talk behind—or even around—your back.

Ideal first date: He overhears that your sister is getting married next weekend and asks to be your +1 to her wedding so he can get to know your extended family.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: Looking through old family photo albums with your brother. Blacking out the faces of the family members who have wronged you.

Your job: The CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Daenerys Targaryen

daenarys-1024

You are full of contradictions. Like a freaky blend of Bernie Sanders and Genghis Khan, you’re both the most compassionate and the most blood-thirsty person in the room at all times. You volunteer your time for good causes but in between delivering Meals on Wheels you’re on the phone firing your assistant for not separating the recycling properly. You like to surround yourself with people you trust, but are scared of taking their advice because you don’t actually trust them deep down.

Ideal first date: A romantic, candle-lit dinner where you impress and dominate your date by holding your fingers over the flames without flinching.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: Listening to Drake’s “Trust Issues” while swiping through Bumble.

Your job: The high-powered lawyer they hire to sue BP after a big oil spill. (Also one of the dragons on Dragons’ Den in your spare time.)

Margaery Tyrell

margaery

You’re effortlessly pretty, popular, smart, compassionate, funny, and easygoing. Pretty much the total package. You’re always smiling and polite, but beneath your carefully constructed facade you are hella manipulative. You’re the type of girl who’s never single for long, and your boyfriends’ friends and family all love you immediately—except for his mother. Other women feel threatened by you, and are constantly trying to trip you up and embarrass you in public.

Ideal first date: You surprise him with two tickets to a baseball game. Or whatever sport he’s into.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: On the phone with your grandma.

Your job: Actress for Neutrogena commercials.

Melisandre

melisandre-1920

You are unshakeable and give off a quiet yet powerful (and sort of creepy) sense of calm. You’ve always had this sense that everything in life will go your way somehow, and that there’s no sense in stressing about the small things. You never cared about making friends or partying in college, and the last time you went out to a bar the guy who tried to buy you a drink mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Ideal first date: Watching a Hitchcock movie.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: In a sensory deprivation chamber.

Your job: Life coach.

Brienne of Tarth

EP302

EP302

You are loyal, brave, and tireless. You will defend your friends and family to your last breath, even when they don’t necessarily want you around, and are afraid of nothing except exploring your own tormented past. You are happiest alone, and look forward to growing old with your trusty old pitbull. People have always underestimated you, and although it pisses you off, you love getting a chance to prove your haters wrong.

Ideal first date: Dating is for suckers.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: Hitting the gym.

Your job: Whatever Ryan Gosling did in Drive.

Olenna Tyrell

olenna

You don’t tolerate drama, weakness, nonsense, stupidity, fools, children, internet videos, cute animals, fast food, hostel beds, fake jewelry, cheap wine, or social media. You’re known for your sharp tongue and sarcasm, and while everybody respects you they’re also a little afraid of you. You have a powerful inner circle of friends and family who you can joke around with, but in public you are ruthless, impatient, and always get what you want.

Ideal first date: Dinner at whatever restaurant is the hardest to get a reservation at.

How you spend your Sunday afternoon: Shopping on 5th Avenue.

Your job: President of some small, wealthy European country.
