'Big Brother': Julie Chen says 'I am surprised the women didn't put up more of a fight this year'

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was Nicole’s biggest mistake in this game?
JULIE CHEN: Unfortunately, her biggest mistake was trusting Christine too much and realizing she couldn’t, too late. She was also too honest, but it made her beloved by fans. She got TWO rounds of applause upon her eviction by the live audience, which has never happened this season and the other houseguests inside noticed. Take that! READ FULL STORY

Meet the pros for season 19 of 'Dancing With the Stars'

Dancing With the Stars is a little over a month away from kicking off its 19th season—and earlier today, on Good Morning America, we got our first glimpse at which 12 professional dancers will be twirling ex-actors, current actors, athletes, hosts, and more around that ballroom floor in hopes of eventually taking home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

For devoted fans of the show, there’s good and bad news. The bad: Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided against surprising the world and returning to the show. But at least his last routine was his best? READ FULL STORY

Julie Chen on double 'Big Brother' evictions and Christine's fatal move

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

EW: If Donny did not win the power of veto and was still on the block, do you think he would/should have been evicted over Hayden?
JULIE CHEN: No, Hayden probably would have been evicted regardless because Derrick decided to turn his back on the “rationales” and Derrick seems to be running things. Plus, Donny seems to be the most liked person inside the house. Donny also has no one working with him, so he’s not a real threat. Hayden is a threat because he has Nicole and looks strong and has dangerous information that can blow up other people’s game.

Christine was playing a smart game until this week, when she sloppily blew up her alliance with Nicole and Hayden. She emerged as a power player this week, but did she overplay her hand too soon and blow it?
I think she did blow it. She went from being liked by all and secretly in two good alliances to being exposed as an untrustworthy person. It’s going to be hard if not impossible for Nicole to ever trust her again and when the Detonators have to dump one of their own, she’s likely to be at the top of the list.

What pleasure do you get from the double evictions? Do you feel bad that everything has to change, or is there a giddy Julie joy from the total madness of a double eviction night!?
I love double eviction night… Watching last minute strategizing, people blowing up other people’s games, making split-second decisions, digging deep to compete and win competitions… it’s what makes Big Brother awesome! This is where the rubber meets the road!

Bravo's 'Extreme Guide to Parenting': Why do we love to judge bad parents?

There are two things that reality TV fans love more than anything else. One is judging people who behave badly. (Think: Real Housewives.) The other is anything “extreme.” (Think: Extreme Makeover.) So it was only a matter of time before Bravo used the word “extreme” to target what might be the most judgmental audience alive: people with kids.

Get ready: The Extreme Guide to Parenting premieres on Bravo tonight. READ FULL STORY

Marquel Martin takes a milk bath to prepare for 'Bachelor in Paradise'

Marquel Martin will not be remembered as a controversial contestant or as someone who left Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette with regrets. He was simply the nice guy who didn’t really share a connection with Dorfman but shared a very intense connection with accessories—and, of course, cookies.

On night one of his stay in the Bachelorette mansion, Martin impressed Dorfman with a cookie tasting. From there, he never got a one-on-one, but he always seemed sweet enough. Now, Martin will bring his cookies to Mexico, where he’ll attempt to find love once again.

Below, watch an exclusive deleted scene from tonight’s Bachelor In Paradise premiere, in which Martin re-introduces himself to viewers by way of a milk bath.

Clare Crawley talks Juan Pablo in 'Bachelor In Paradise' deleted clip

Bachelor fans know Clare Crawley well. After all, she was often the center of attention in one of the show’s most controversial seasons, featuring Bachelor Juan Pablo. From her late night/early morning swim with Juan Pablo to her feud with his eventual pick, Nikki Ferrell, Clare made her presence known. But will she do the same on Bachelor In Paradise?

We’ve got an exclusive deleted clip from the Bachelor In Paradise premiere, in which Clare talks about putting Juan Pablo’s “bullsh–” behind her and still believing love is waiting for her. READ FULL STORY

'Big Brother': Julie Chen defends Donny's big Team America decision

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We had another unanimous vote this week as Amber was evicted. There have been a lot of unanimous or near unanimous votes this season. What is it about the house dynamic this year that has led to so much consensus?
JULIE CHEN: The house is being run by men who intimidate the women and those that are not in their alliance. No one is willing to put a target on their back and no one is strong enough to start forming an alliance against the Detonators. It’s pure intimidation. It started out as brawn that intimidated everyone — i.e. Devin and Caleb — and it morphed into the other men in the Bomb Squad running the house now:  Derrick, Zach, Frankie, and Cody.

ABC's 'The Quest:' I'd rather be LARPing

It’s a pretty good time for fantasy on television. Not since the heady days of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess have we had so many swords, fortresses, and leather jerkins on our TVs at once—during prime time nonetheless. Enter ABC’s The Quest, a reality show that promises something new: a carefully crafted fantasy world that 12 contestants enter to compete for the honor of being the One True Hero, who will wield the Sunspear and banish evil from the world of Everealm.

At first, I was worried the show was going to be condescending—look at these contestants giving themselves over to the fantasy, committing to the roles, isn’t that goofy? Definitely not something normal people would do. But that fear turned out to be baseless. Instead, The Quest does something worse: It makes fantasy really, really, boring. READ FULL STORY

Ben Stiller scales a wet rockface in 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls'

BEAR-GRYLLS-BEN-STILLER.jpg

In Bear Grylls’ newest reality show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the outdoors expert takes celebrities on 48-hour adventures to test their survival skills, get to know them, and hopefully teach them a thing or two. And after Zac Efron passed the test as Grylls’ first partner in survival on Monday’s premiere, Ben Stiller is next on the hit list.

We’ve got an exclusive clip from episode 2, in which Grylls and Stiller find themselves situated thousands of feet in the air, trusting their lives to one tiny rock.


Running Wild with Bear Grylls airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Ben Scott calls 'Bachelor In Paradise' his 'redemption story' in deleted clip

BACHELOR-PARADISE.jpg

Ben Scott will forever be remembered in Bachelorette history as the guy who brought his kid to the first rose ceremony. And after that, he’ll be remembered as the guy who said hello to “Hollywood” on his exit limo ride, adding that the show had missed its shot at the perfect Bachelor. After all, he is a single dad from Texas, and does it get any better than that? Well, probably.

Regardless, Scott is now on his way to Bachelor In Paradise, and we’ve got an exclusive look at his introductory package, which was cut from the first episode. The biggest takeaway: He considers his time in paradise to be his shot at redemption.

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, August 4 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Boyish enthusiasm shines in 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls' premiere

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive in the wild. He’s proven that. But can he teach celebrities how to do the same? That’s the fun of Grylls’ newest series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, in which Grylls takes celebrities into the wild for 48-hour adventures, where they’ll jump out of helicopters, eat worms, and, if they’re Zac Efron, rappel down a waterfall.

In the premiere of Running Wild, Bear picked up Zac Efron for a two-day journey through the Catskills that could not have been more adorable if they had tried. Zac, a lifelong fan of Bear and his shows, brought with him, as Bear put it, a “boyish enthusiasm” that only reminded Bear of why he does what he does. Within minutes of the two talking about camping, nature, and the like, the men had turned into boys, and the rest was downright delightful.

The adventure started with a quick jump out of a helicopter before the men began their 40-mile journey through the mountains, during which Zac admitted that the reason he wanted to do the show—and the reason it was so fun to watch—was really just because he wanted to hang out with Bear. (Don’t we all?)

If only Zac realized that he’d literally be hanging out with bear. After a quick rappel over some slippery rocks, Zac and Bear stopped to eat a few dietary supplements—jerky and nuts—which gave viewers the first real bonding session of the trip. Zac told Bear how he got into show business and what he loves about his work. In return, we learned a fun fact about Bear: He can’t dance.

From there, Bear pushed Zac to his limit when he asked him to retrieve a dead groundhog carcass to see if it was good enough to eat. Spoiler: It was not, and Zac nearly vomited at least five times. But he did it anyway, and Bear loved Zac’s attitude. The two were fast friends, digging their hands in the mud and smelling the insides of dead animals with smiles on their faces. Before we knew it, they were sharing worms (like they were spaghetti and this was Lady and the Tramp), finding camp, eating worm omelets, and talking about Zac’s stint in rehab.

In a refreshing scene, Zac really opened up to Bear about the struggles of Hollywood, and somehow, Bear was not only the great survivalist, but he’d become a great interviewer/psychologist without even trying. Basically, there’s nothing this man can’t do. Also, nature is good for the soul. (Or maybe it was the worms?) By nighttime, the two were joking around about mixing up pee bottles and water bottles, snuggling, and even giving goodnight kisses (on the forehead).

[Insert pitch for a Bear and Zac spinoff.]

Day two consisted of some fern tea, a highly dangerous rope crawl between two cliffs, and a 150-ft. shirtless rappel to the water below. As Zac put it, the greatest trip of his life was like “camping gone crazy,” and for viewers, it was the perfect mix of compelling entertainment, sheer excitement, genuine bonding, Zac’s abs, and Bear’s accent.

If this is what we’re in for with Running Wild, we’ll go crazy camping every week.

Julie Chen on 'Big Brother's Zach-Frankie showmance, Cody's 'wrong move'

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

Between Cody’s will-he-or-won’t-he nomination, Frankie’s tragic news, Brittany’s hanging toenails, Donny’s gentle eyes, Jocasta’s dumb bowties, Hayden and Nicole’s hook-up (finally), and Derrick’s heroic—and perhaps very savvy—throwing of the HoH competition, there was a lot going on this week in the world of Big Brother. Thankfully, Julie Chen is here to help take some of the mystery away.  READ FULL STORY
