Just when you thought you have seen it all, The Bachelor threw us a nasty curve ball that clipped our kneecap and took us out of the game. On the THREE HOUR finale last night… yes, that’s roughly the amount of time it takes for Tom Brady to “do his job”. At least the GOAT gets to wear pads. Poor Becca didn’t have that luxury when Arie caught her totally off guard with a break-up instead of the simple meet-up she thought was being filmed. Well… it doesn’t end there kids. Oh no. TONIGHT, the whole gang, including runner-up Lauren, gets together to hash it all out… on TV… no edits… for your enjoyment… like every sane love story. One ENews writer summed it up like this… “Lauren always had trouble opening up, and Becca just made everything so easy. Even Arie's family told him to pick Becca, but Arie has always obviously loved Lauren despite her barely speaking to him, so it always felt like he was going to pick her”. You have a better chance at finding true love at a funeral than you do on a television show where the guy gets to test-drive all his potential “loves of his life” for your enjoyment.
Who’s the best sport in Hollywood? It’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. After all those pile-drivers and suplexes, he still takes some hits from time to time that might knock anyone down for the count. As some of his peers were collecting Oscars Sunday night, Dwayne was accepting an award of his own. But it was a Razzie, an award that celebrated the worst in Hollywood, for his work on the movie version of Baywatch. But The Rock took it like a champ and went to social media to laugh and thank everyone for the “honor”. “Here’s the cool thing -- the movie was so bad, they actually had to create another category. I’m not kidding. The new category is ‘A Movie So Rotten You Eventually Fell in Love With It.’ Which means the BLEEP sandwich you’ve been eating is so bad that you eventually start to like it,” he said, grinning. Dwayne can certainly laugh it off considering his most recent movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is about to hit the billion dollar mark and he’s set to release two action flicks this year, Rampage and Skyscraper. Plus he’s still having great success with his HBO series Ballers. Razzie THAT!
Where is the most popular spot on the globe these days? Wakanda! Marvel’s Black Panther has just surpassed the $500 million mark domestically and remains the number one movie at the box office. This past weekend it picked up $65.7 million lending NO competition to number 2 and 3, Red Sparrow with Jennifer Lawrence at $17 million and Death Wish with Bruce Willis at $13 million respectively. Looks like it really is good to be king. And congrats to Wakanda itself for being the most desirable travel destination in the world according to people who always cringe when the geography category pops up on trivia night.
