Almost down to the final rose: Scorned men weren’t the only ones to share the truth on The Bachelorette’s “The Men Tell All” reunion show as Chris Harrison welcomed Andi Dorfman and her previously eliminated suitors to the hot seat. Closure was given to some of the bachelors, such as Marcus Grodd and Chris Soules, who had both made emotional exits this season. The two were finally able to confront the bachelorette about her decisions, who answered honestly that her feelings were just not enough to keep them.

But a lovely Canadian girl, introduced as Ketra, was quick to interrupt the show and present herself to Chris, proving that he may not have too much trouble bouncing back from his broken heart. Andi was also given the chance to clear the air about pregnancy rumours, which she laughed off as untrue. There was however, one pregnant bachelorette alumni in the building, as Ashley and JP Rosenbaum flashed a giant baby bump and smiling faces. The biggest shocker came when Ashley agreed to participate in a live ultrasound to find out the sex of the baby. Even soon-to-be father, JP began to tear up when Chris Harrison announced that the two would be having a boy. Andi will make her choice between Nick Viall and Josh Murray next week.

Brittany sent packing: Although advertised as the most “twisted summer” ever, it seems more like a unanimous summer inside of the Big Brother house as Brittany Martinez was the next houseguest evicted with every vote cast her way. It may have been no surprise to anyone that the mother of three would be heading home as she sat beside everyone’s favourite bearded gentleman, Donny Thompson, who was used as a pawn once Victoria Rafaeli surprisingly won the Power Of Veto and took herself off of the block. Head of Household, Cody Calafiore had a difficult decision to make and hesitated with the replacement nominee decision, originally wanting to oust Caleb Reynolds due to their school-boy rivalry over the house beauty, Amber Borzotra. In the end, Brittany packed her bags and became the fourth houseguest evicted this season. Heading into a fresh week in the house, Frankie Grande and Zach Rance are the new HOHs and the power belongs to The Detonators.

Snakes and liars: Olympic gold medal hockey stars, Natalie Spooner and Meaghan Mikkelson scored another hat trick and the two golden girls weren’t even on the ice. For the third leg in a row, the Amazing Race Canada pair took the first place position, proving to be unstoppable. Of course, much of their success was owed to their magical Express Pass. The momentous week brought the racing pairs to Hong Kong for the first international Amazing Race Canada adventure. An 18-hour trip, kung fu lessons, a snake supper and a cameo from MasterChef Canada judge Alvin Leung made for a thrilling week of adventure as the racers struggled with the new environment.

The language barrier proved to be the toughest challenge the teams had yet faced. Racers had to choose between mastering a series of kung fu moves or getting ingredients for Chef Leung’s Bo Innovation restaurant. After the challenge, teams had to head over to a local restaurant where they had to eat snake bile and gulp down snake meat soup (oh, and brothers Pierre and Michel Forget became the first villains after they tried to mislead other teams during this challenge). While pairs like Natalie and Meghan flourished at the new setting, married couple Laura Takahashi and Jackie Skinner hit a major speed bump when they were unable to find the necessary ingredients to please Chef Leung. Ironically, it was Canadian maple syrup that absorbed most of the team’s time and the couple was the next pair eliminated from the race.

Talk about a fish fry: At $450 a fish, king salmon served as a luxurious dish for the top 13 MasterChef hopefuls to prepare this week. The remaining home cooks baked, browned and seared the fancy fillets while judges Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliot, showed off their technical skills by creating a perfect meal in half the time the others were given during the Mystery Box challenge. Christian Green was the catch of the day, earning his first Mystery Box win by impressing the judges with Cajun blackened salmon.

As a reward, Christian was given the power to choose what ingredients the remaining cooks would be using, inspired by the judges’ favourite fixings. An Italian-induced basket of ingredients, selected by Joe Bastianich, was his strategic choice. As a twist, the winning cook was also given the opportunity to distribute a time penalty to one chef, allowing them only thirty minutes to prepare the Italian dish. Christian chose his biggest competitor, Courtney Lapresi, but his attempt to stop the high-heeled cook fell flat when Courtney pleased the judges with mushroom ragu. It was Elise Mayfield who was forced to hang up her apron after serving bland ravioli.

Ousted dancers: With Marcouet Hill and Brooklyn Fullmer eliminated from the So You Think You Can Dance running, the top 14 dancers remain.

Top Talent: America’s Got Talent judges Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel narrowed down the season nine crop of talent to the top 48 acts.

Key Advisor: Pharrell Williams has recruited Alicia Keys to be his music advisor on The Voice’s seventh season which airs Sept. 22.

Candid Return: Candid Camera is being revived by TV Land and is set to return on August 11 with Emmy-nominated Mayim Bialik as the show’s host.
