Taking the boys to Brussels: Bachelorette Andi Dorfman whisked her six remaining men off to Brussels for one last rendezvous overseas before the dreaded “hometown dates.” The bachelors had one final chance to prove to the women of their dreams why she should meet their families and it seemed that, "I'm falling in love with you," was the magic phrase to earn the men a rose to take them there. This season's frontrunner, Nick Viall, continued to annoy his competition as he aggressively fought for more of Andi's time. Breaking the rules, Nick took a risk and snuck out to Andi's hotel room after her one-on-one date with Marcus Grodd and led the bachelorette on a romantic walk that earned him brownie points for his initiative. But back at the hotel, the men called Nick out for his sneaky-ways, labelling him a salesman, referring to his willingness to do anything to earn Andi's attention. However, their aggression didn't seem to faze the bachelor in the least. "I'm pretty confident that I'm going to end up with Andi," Nick stated. Andi didn't seem to prove him wrong. "I do see the possibility of him standing at the very end," she confided to the cameras. In the end, it was Dylan Petitt and Brian Osborne that were cut just a week short of hometown visits.
Big Brother 16
First eviction of BB16: Big Brother saw its first victim of the season this week when blue-haired Joey Van Pelt was the first houseguest sent home. After Joey attempted to campaign with the other ladies in the house to create an all-girls alliance, word got back to the Bomb Squad, the reigning power of men in the house lead by Head of Household, Caleb Reynolds. The alpha-males were not pleased. Although Donny Thompson and Paola Shea were the two houseguests sitting on the block by the hand of Caleb, the spotlight was on Joey when Donny won the Power Of Veto and saved himself for the week. Joey's attempt to build a new team cemented her own elimination. In a fraternity themed male vs female HoH competition, Amber Borzotra and Devin Shepherd took the win, ensuring that the Bomb Squad continued their reign over the house for another week. But an interactive twist titled Team America just might be the only hope to dethrone the dominating power. The twist has given viewers the opportunity to vote who they would want to be in an alliance with, and bearded groundskeeper Donny was chosen to team up with Big Brother fans to stir up the house.
Who stole Jaimee’s ramekin?: For the first time ever on MasterChef, a contestant was sent home for serving a dish that they did not make themselves. Tyler Viars was eliminated from the competition after he served a panna cotta made by fellow contestant Jaimee Vitolo. Turns out he “stole” the dessert from the freezer by mistake. Even though Gordon Ramsay and the remaining judges believed him when he said it wasn’t on purpose, rules are rules and the unfortunate situation led to Tyler's demise. MasterChef alumni Luca Manfe and Alexander Weiss returned to gloat to the top 16 competitors about how amazing life is with the MasterChef title and introduced them to their elimination challenge, which entailed cooking up either a pancetta wrapped veal or passion fruit panna cotta. While competitors like Big Willie struggled with the challenge, "Little Ms. Tippy Toes" Courtney Lapresi proved that she is a force to be reckoned with in her high heels as she took the win of the week.
America’s Got Talent
Pensioner stuns America’s Got Talent: Comedians ruled the centre stage on America's Got Talent this week proving that there was no greater talent than the ability to make the judges laugh. Viral video comedians Emmanuel and Phillip Hudson, responsible for the Ratchet Girl Anthem, a video with over 43 million views on YouTube, graced the stage in wigs to perform the acclaimed song for the judges. Howard Stern and Heidi Klum just didn't understand the original act but Howie Mandel believed in the brother duo so much that he used his save to grant them entrance to the next round. He also went as far as calling Heidi "ratchet" for her inability to see their genius. Unconventional comedian Darik Santos earned the judges favour with jokes that were so unfunny that they were funny, while 46-year-old Joe Matarese earned four yeses by making fun of his kids. The biggest laughs of the week went to 84-year-old Ray Jessel who threw everyone for a loop with an inappropriate song about a woman with a penis. But the old man laughed last when he was given the judges' approval to continue in the competition.
