Who is Demi from the Bachelor?

Demi Gabrielle Elizabeth Burnett (born February 21, 1995) is an American television personality. She received national recognition after appearing as a contestant on season 23 of The Bachelor, but she was eliminated by Colton Underwood during week 6 of the show. wikipedia.orgDemi Burnett

Holy shit. I was at home, on my couch, squealing in delight. Is Bachelor in Paradise genuinely horny again? Because I am THRILLED. I am TITILLATED. I am TANTALIZED.

I would just like everyone on the beach to really look close and see what sexual chemistry and sexual tension really looks like. Riley slowly and carefully pulling Maurissa in for a kiss with just one finger under her chin is the stuff of great romance novels. Do I wish their perfect first kiss could have happened somewhere other than under the watchful eye of Lance Bass while surrounded by boiled tongue? Sure, but considering everyone else on the beach’s stratagem is to make eye contact and then say, “Let’s kiss,” a carefully executed smooth move is a delight. Especially for the people who consider themselves sexual scoundrels, seeing some sexual chemistry build and then finally be released between two people who are really feeling the moment and are getting to know each other is a FUCKING TREAT.

So, my kingdom for a thousand Rileys. Let’s get to it.

I can’t believe we have to start somewhere other than the entrance of Riley. Up first, we have to meet our new guest host, and I hope each one is introduced with a musical sting and pun every single time. I need Titus Burgess to enter singing “And I’m telling youuuuuu I’m your new guest host!” The guest host is Lance Bass and I’m perfectly fine with this. He’s down to gab and it doesn’t seem like he’s going to make any untoward jokes about someone’s sexual preferences. That’s where the bar is and he’s sailing over it. Kenny says the boy band he manages would only be able to exist because of Lance Bass. All Kenny has is because of Lance Bass.

This week in Paradise the women have the roses, so you’d assume that the men would do all they can to impress the women and keep their spot there, but dating is broken and men are pests. The men are more concerned that Thomas from Katie’s season might show up. Y’all. He’s going to show up. Of course he is. That’s how this game show works. They figure out what would make you have the worst time and then give you that. I’m still waiting for Tre’s hot uncle to saunter down the steps and trap Tre in a love isosceles. The arrival of Thomas has all the men from Katie’s season FIRED UP. They are so incredibly pissed that a hot guy they don’t like is on the beach with them. Meanwhile, every woman’s neck has snapped off their bodies from craning it to look at Thomas. Demi! If you’re such a little troublemaker, go climb all 6’6” of Thomas! This is your moment! But instead, Thomas takes basically every woman aside and asks them if they know how tall he is. He’s 6’6”, has he mentioned that yet?

Aaron and Tre are pacing back and forth, enumerating Thomas’s negative qualities in a list that just keeps growing. He’s a snake, he’s trash, he’s a narcissist, he’s a liar who doesn’t deserve to walk the earth. All the other guys on the beach are trying to stay as far away from any drama as possible and praying that their girlfriends of two full days aren’t going to abandon them for a certified hottie, even if he is an alleged monster. Tahzjuan decides to just tell Thomas that some of the guys don’t like him but she still would like to climb him like a tree if the option is still available. Aaron makes eye contact with Tammy and says “Tammy, ignore his ass” which is exactly what a woman wants to hear from the guy she likes about literally talking to another man.

Thomas ends up asking Serena P on the date, prompting Joe to wander the beach again, questioning his very existence. He keeps taking naps to keep the bad feelings away. He’s reminded of when Kendall went on a date with Leo on their season of Paradise and she spent the next few days wondering who she was going to pick. All I was thinking was “Who the fuck is Leo? If we’re supposed to remember who this pivotal person was in Joe’s time in Paradise before, maybe show one clip of his face?”

On Thomas and Serena P’s date, they’re going banana-boating and sitting at some sort of floating cocktail table that’s pulled behind a speedboat. Adorable date. Thomas takes his shirt off and we see it in slow motion. Serena P and Thomas make out on the floating cocktail table before having what can only be described as a “sangria picnic.” Thomas toasts to the “side pickle” and Serena P asks him “so why does everyone hate your fucking guts?” Thomas decides to take this moment to say that he was a father figure to Tre who is basically emotionally weak and Aaron is full of shit. Let me reiterate: Thomas stealing Katie away multiple times when other people hadn’t gotten time shouldn’t even be part of this. That’s slightly dick-ish but permissible Bachelorette behavior. Thomas says he wishes there was actual tea to spill, but calling Tre your adult son who can’t do emotions good is pretty hot.

Back in Paradise, RILEY IS ARRIVING. He has been doing bicep curls since the day he left the New Mexico desert. The women line up on a daybed for the mere privilege of being gazed upon by this delicious man. Riley is a lawyer and everyone, and I mean fucking everyone, would say yes to going on a date with him. I saw Wells perched on that daybed. The men are finally worried about this new arrival because Riley is a decent person and jacked as hell. After gazing into the eyes of every woman on the beach and telling her that she’s beautiful, Riley picks Maurissa and Tahzjuan has a fucking meltdown. Riley was THE ONLY person she was there to meet, and Tre is really going to have a hard time watching this season back.

Serena P finally returns from her date and tells Joe that she’s still into him but if Thomas had been involved in like 20 percent less drama, they might be having a different conversation. Thank goodness this 35-year-old man can continue to date this 23-year-old. Before we can get to Riley and Maurissa’s incredibly sexual date, Tahzjuan tells Thomas that the women on the beach have heard the feedback about his behavior. Thomas asks “what was the feedback” and Tahzjuan says “that you’re a liar and you manipulate and mislead everyone.” She says he’s about to have a very bad time.

Karl decides to snag a literal second of screen time and leads Thomas over to the rest of the dudes for an unsolicited confrontation. No one asked for this. Not even the audience. Thomas should just take his shirt off and pose in the water. That’s all I want from him. Thomas takes accountability for his actions on Katie’s season but doesn’t own up to any of the trash-talking he did on their date. Tre appreciates the accountability-sounding language but he won’t believe it until he sees some different actions. And again, that’s not what’s about to happen. We know how reality TV works. Tahzjuan tells Tre that Thomas was talking trash on his date with Serena P. Tre goes to confront Thomas again to tell him that Tre isn’t going to talk to him again. In terms of the confrontations we’ve seen on Paradise, this is pretty tame and actually a pretty healthy way for Tre to handle this drama. Good for you, Tre.

Y’all. It’s time for Riley and Maurissa’s date and her titties are OUT. She is READY. I completely forgot she was even with Connor because those titties say she did too. Connor tries to remind her before she goes on her date that he likes her (because Jessenia has to remind him that putting in an effort is a good idea) and if the choices are “Music Improv Guy who Keeps Bringing His Ukelele to Rehearsal” and “Jacked Hot Lawyer,” we know who Maurissa is picking.

Riley and Maurissa get the joke date!!!!! Nooo!!! Give them something cute, damn it. They have to answer a probing question or take a bite of some animal parts. All of the animal parts featured would actually taste good if they were braised in a chili broth. None of the questions are that mortifying and they both won’t answer, “What was your most embarrassing moment?” C’mon, we’ve all read a YM magazine. Just say your period bled through your pants or you puked on a roller coaster. Then the questions start to get sexier and they feed each other the offal. You know you wanna really bang somebody when feeding them dry table tripe with your bare hands becomes an erotic experience. Maurissa says she masturbates every day and yes, bitch. You know exactly what an orgasm is, so feel free to ride Riley until the wheels fall the fuck off to get what’s yours.

Meanwhile, Connor’s corny ass is still playing the ukulele. Sir. No. I’ve dated one of these twee lil’ cherubs before and yes, while they are highly enthusiastic and take direction well, at some point, you just want A Jacked Lawyer. The other minor relationship scuffles are that Tre and Tahzjuan have to reaffirm their commitment to each other after Tahz is visibly disappointed Thomas doesn’t take her on the date and Tre has no idea how to actually pursue a woman, and Natasha is folding into herself because Brendan isn’t trying to make their connection romantic. She can tell something is wrong and he won’t actually name it or own up to it. Combined with all the Pieper rumors, it’s becoming clearer that Brendan is just trying to hang around until someone more interesting shows up. I wonder if he’ll still get a hot edit when all that goes down.

Back on Maurissa and Riley’s date, they both talk about wanting a marriage and a family and Maurissa wants her children to be the team at the family reunion no one wants to fuck with. She also talks about gaining weight because of what sounds like some bad relationships. I simply did not know how to interpret this conversation. As a fat person, I’m used to someone gaining weight being used as storytelling shorthand for “depression” or “letting yourself go.” It doesn’t make it easier or less depressing to hear “200-and-something pounds” as a nightmare weight scenario. Probably the most depressing part is that this show hasn’t featured anyone who wasn’t an absolute thin knockout. “Two hundred and something pounds” is probably an average weight for a lot of people, and this show would never ever ever ever feature a woman anywhere near that number. I’m glad Maurissa was able to find the strength and peace she needed to, in her words, “snap out of it.” (What does that mean?) I really am. Not liking the body you’re in is incredibly painful and knowing that people are treating you different because of your body is fucking awful. Hearing Riley tell Maurissa that he’s sure she was beautiful when she gained weight because she has a beautiful soul was pretty great. But man, oh man, it’s time for literally any size diversity on this program so the only narratives we hear about fat people aren’t “I had to snap out of that.”

Thankfully, the show leaves us on the positively mouth-watering moment when Riley puts Maurissa up against a wall and makes out with her, gives her a lil’ kiss on the forehead and says “I know a place we can go.” Connor who?!??!??!?!?

Blake H. Jokes About Stagecoach Scandal Amid BiP's Brendan, Pieper Drama

msnNOW 25 August, 2021 - 03:10pm

Blame it on the beach! Bachelor in Paradise alum Blake Horstmann had some strong feelings about the drama brewing between Brendan Morais and the season 7 women — and begged fans to leave him out of it.

The “Behind the Rose” podcast host, 32, weighed in on the Monday, August 23, episode, during which Brendan, 31, was called out for his history with season 25 Bachelor contestant Pieper James before arriving in Mexico. While plenty of viewers were quick to compare Brendan’s situation to Blake’s season 6 scandal, the Colorado native pointed out a key difference.

“I’m seeing a lot of s–t out there about Brendan getting kind of the edit or whatever [that] I did last time,” Blake said in an Instagram Story video while watching Monday’s episode. “I want to just be very clear. I was in zero relationships two years ago. Zero. Not any, for the record.”

Blake made his Bachelor Nation debut during Becca Kufrin‘s search for love in 2018 and ended the season as the runner-up to Garrett Yrigoyen. The next year, he returned to the franchise for the summer spinoff, where his past plans to hook up with fellow season 6 contestant Caelynn Miller-Keyes at Stagecoach Festivaldays after he had sex with Kristina Schulman — landed him in the hot seat.

While his BiP journey aired in 2019, Blake released screenshots of text messages between him and Caelynn, 26, in an attempt to clear his name. Earlier this year, he revealed he had no regrets.

“I’ll never really apologize for that,” he told Us Weekly exclusively on the “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast in March. “I’m never gonna regret [or] apologize for defending myself.”

Brendan, for his part, was introduced to Bachelorette fans during season 16. Though his chemistry with Tayshia Adams was strong, he eventually realized he wasn’t ready for an engagement ahead of the December 2020 finale. Six months later, Us confirmed the Massachusetts native moved on with Pieper, 23.

“Pieper and Brendan have been dating for a few weeks now,” a source exclusively revealed in June, adding that the reality stars were “keeping their relationship under wraps” in its early stages. “They both are super into each other and are getting to know each other and are just having fun going on dates.”

When news of Brendan’s off-camera romance made its way around the beach, he was forced to explain himself to Natasha Parker and Demi Burnett, who had just invited him on a one-on-one date.

“I don’t understand where that conversation came from,” the season 23 Bachelor alum, 26, said in a confessional on Monday. “This has never happened to me before. Except for Colton [Underwood] and that was brutal. But he was gay.”

Bachelor in Paradise airs on ABC Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET. Scroll through for more Bachelor Nation reactions to the second episode:

The season 14 Bachelorette — who will eventually make an appearance on the BiP beach this season — polled her Instagram followers, “Is it Paradise if some people aren’t already in relationships?”

The season 6 BiP star teased fans to “keep my name out your mouth” when dissecting the Brendan drama. “Okkkkk I was in zero relationships,” he captioned an Instagram Story clip on Monday.

During season 6 in 2019, Derek sparked a connection with Demi, who dumped him after her now-ex Kristian Haggerty surprised her in Mexico. When a Twitter user poked fun at the similarities to Demi’s situation on season 7, the season 12 Bachelorette alum replied, “lol I see no lies.”

The Texas native playfully joined in on Derek’s conversation, replying, “ leave bip 6 outta this.”

“Blake watching everyone being ok with Brendan talking to Piper before paradise,” the former NFL player tweeted alongside a meme of the Arthur cartoon.

The “Viall Files” podcast host shared a “PSA” with his Twitter followers on Monday, sharing a fan’s post that included a side-by-side photo of Blake and Brendan. “Warning to all men who come out of the Bachelorette as a nice guy,” the tweet read. “Either stop there or do NOT associate with any Bachelor Nation people before Paradise.”

“If this boi Brendan plays any of my friends ur bout to experience the spirit of slap. Stay tuned…” the season 24 Bachelor alum joked in an Instagram Story while watching Monday’s episode.

On the other hand, the fans also witnessed the arrival of Bachelor in Paradise season 6 fame, Demi Brunett. Here’s everything you want to know about who left Bachelor in Paradise last night and which of the couples were engaged in the show so far. 

The latest episode of the show witnessed Demi Brunett entering with a date card and offers it to James. However, she faces rejection and later goes to Brendon. Brendon suggests to her that they should still see other people and wait for their paths to cross in the near future. While Brendon holds out for Pieper, Brunett feels upset about being rejected. Later, Natasha shows her concern for Brendon and asks him about his connection with Pieper to which he admits that he had the strongest connection with Natasha.  Meanwhile, Tammy talks about how Victoria P had a major plan to pursue James only because she wanted to stick around longer. James then confronts Victoria after which she admits that she was in a relationship with someone and adds that she is now single. However, Victoria still self-eliminates herself after confronting James that speculates that she already has a connection outside the show. “I was appreciative of them coming to me, so I have no issue with them,” said James on Victoria leaving the show. While leaving, Victoria dropped a hint about having a boyfriend and stated, “I tried to make something work, and I realized that I don’t have to search for what I already have at home.” Apart from Victoria, Kelsey and Serena C were also sent home. The pairs present at the rose ceremony were Ivan and Jessenia, Noah and Abigail, Aaron and Tammy, Kenny and Mari, Connor and Maurissa, Grocery Store Joe and Serena P, Tre and Tahzjuan, Karl and Deandra, Brendan and Natasha, and James and Demi Burnett.

According to the reports by Reality Steve, Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt, Kenny Braasch and Mari and Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn will get engaged in Bachelor in Paradise season 7 finale. 

Sex Came To Bachelor In Paradise Early! But I’m Too Worried To Celebrate Just Yet

The Tokyo Paralympic Games are going to be more visible and have more participants than ever before, even in the face of the pandemic.

Here's a look at the records and other "firsts" happening in this year's Games, which officially opened on Tuesday and run through Sept. 5.

For the first time, the opening ceremony and events are running in a prime-time slot on network television. This year's Games are carried by NBC.

NBC is set to air more than 1,200 hours of programming across its TV and digital channels in the days ahead (compared with some 70 hours of total coverage during the 2016 Rio Games, The Associated Press reports).

To learn more about why it has taken so long and what to expect this year, check out this conversation about Paralympics coverage on 1A from NPR and WAMU.

Two of the 22 summer sports sanctioned by the International Paralympic Committee are new to the Games: badminton and taekwondo.

Although the IPC announced that badminton would become an official sport in 2015, it is just now making its debut.

Taekwondo will be the first full-contact Paralympic sport ever.

Read more about the rules for badminton and taekwondo.

There are 4,403 athletes taking part in the international competition, according to the organizing committee for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

That bests the previous record for athletes competing in the Paralympics (4,328 set in Rio in 2016).

Among those competing in the Tokyo Paralympic Games, 1,853 are women, another record. Previously, Rio 2016 had the most female athletes with 1,671.

At least 28 publicly out Paralympians will compete in the Summer Games in Tokyo, more than double the number that took part in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, according to Outsports.

The athletes on the list come from at least eight countries and are mostly women. The only man on the list is Lee Pearson, an equestrian from Great Britain.

There are also "at least three non-binary or neutral athletes" participating in the Games, according to the site.

For the first time, Paralympians who win medals in Tokyo will earn the same as Olympians in Tokyo, thanks to a 2018 decision by the U.S. Olympic Committee board.

The move gave Paralympic athletes a 400% increase for each medal win, finally putting them at parity with U.S. Olympians.

Thomas Brings the Drama With Tre and Serena P. on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’

Us Weekly 24 August, 2021 - 09:31pm

First, the cast learned their new guest host was Lance Bass. He introduced himself by playing ‘NSync’s “It’s Gonna Be Me” on a boombox. He then announced that new men would be arriving soon as control of the roses shifted to the women.

The first to come in was Thomas, bringing with him a date card. The guys from Katie Thurston’s season — specifically Tre Cooper, Aaron Clancy and James Bonsall — immediately put their guards up given their past bad blood with Thomas and warned others about his alleged motives. Thomas set his sights on Serena Pitt, and she agreed when he asked her out because she thought it was too early in her relationship with Joe Amabile to be fully committed to him.

Joe, meanwhile, spiraled over the prospect of reliving the situation he went through with his ex Kendall Long during season 5, when she was interested in both him and Leo Dottavio. He debated whether he should leave Paradise if Serena wanted to pursue Thomas. Serena was physically attracted to Thomas, and they kissed during their date. But after he tried to explain his drama with the men from his season, she told him to pursue other women because she didn’t want to be wrapped up in the controversy.

Thomas was upset that his former Bachelorette castmates hurt his chances with Serena, so he decided to apologize to Tre, Aaron and James. Tre opted to forgive Thomas, but then he discovered that Thomas told Serena during their date that Tre was not emotionally strong. Tre confronted Thomas, informing him that he planned to focus on himself and would never speak to him again. He didn’t even let Thomas defend himself before walking away.

Riley Christian arrived later in the episode, leading Tahzjuan Hawkins to confess that he was the only man she wanted to meet in Paradise. He hit it off with Maurissa Gunn, though, so he took her on a date. Connor Brennan, who was loosely coupled up with Maurissa, insisted he wasn’t worried about her going out with Riley. However, Maurissa and Riley’s chemistry was apparent, and they went to bed together when they returned from their date.

Although she was disappointed about her missed opportunity with Riley, Tahzjuan and Tre decided to continue seeing each other.

Elsewhere in the episode, Natasha Parker struggled to connect romantically with Brendan Morais and felt like they were both waiting on someone else to show up on the beach. She revealed that they had not even made out yet and wondered if he was conning her.
