So grool: Jonathan Bennett is the early favorite to win ‘Celebrity Big Brother’

So grool: Jonathan Bennett is the early favorite to win ‘Celebrity Big Brother’
What would Lindsay Lohan say? Her “Mean Girls” co-star Jonathan Bennett, aka Aaron Samuels, is our pre-premiere favorite to win “Celebrity Big Brother,” while her mother, Dina Lohan, is down in fifth place.

Bennett has 9/2 odds to win the second season of the celebrity edition. And not only does the actor and “Dancing with the Stars” alum have the support of our readers, but he’s also friends with Kaitlyn from “Big Brother 20.” Can’t get a better endorsement than that. Maybe she had a vision of him winning. Or at the very least maybe they trained with a an eight-piece puzzle. #neverforget

Bennett, who’s hosted “Cake Wars” and “Cupcake Wars,” also dates Jaymes Vaughan, half of the Chippendales team that came in second on “The Amazing Race 21,” so his CBS reality show connections run deep. We hope at least he forms a Lindsay alliance with Dina (an aliloance?

Hayden Panettiere Opens Up About Connie Britton's Shocking 'Nashville' Exit: 'It's Hard for Me to Talk About'

Hayden Panettiere Opens Up About Connie Britton's Shocking 'Nashville' Exit: 'It's Hard for Me to Talk About'
Nashville viewers were devastated by Connie Britton's shocking exit last week -- Hayden Panettiere included.

During a Friday appearance on The Talk, the 27-year-old actress revealed that Britton's character's death is still hard for her to talk about.

Watch: 'Nashville' Says Farewell to One of Its Stars With the Most Devastating Goodbye

"It's hard for me to even talk about it," Panettiere confessed. "That was also the day that, you know, she's lying in the hospital bed, and her daughters are singing this song for her, and as a mother, the idea of seeing two little girls lose their mom, like, it's hard for me to talk about. It really is."

Last Thursday's episode saw Britton's Rayna Jaymes take her last breath after succumbing to complications from injuries she suffered during a shocking car accident, just as Panettiere's character, Juliette Barnes, started walking again following a horrific plane crash.

Interview: Natalie & Nadiya talk 'The Amazing Race: All-Stars'
Normally the first team eliminated on "The Amazing Race" ends up being pretty anonymous, because it's just too hard for producers to give quality time to so many players in a crowded premiere episode. Say what you want about All-Star seasons or the specific All-Stars this season, but very few people were ambivalent about Twinnies Natalie & Nadiya Anderson, who earned fans and haters alike for their first season, which included a contentious money incident, some smart U-Turn strategy and lots and lots and lots of yelling. On Sunday's "Amazing Race" premiere, though, only the yelling was in evidence and even that was half-hearted after a while. Natalie & Nadiya got an early advantage getting on the first of two flights to China, but struggles in a wedding district saw them fall from first to last. By the time they started bickering at the top of the Canton Tower over ferris wheel cars,

'The Amazing Race' Finale Recap: Jason And Amy Beat Out Marie And Tim To Win Season 23

The final four couples traveled around Tokyo and Alaska in the season 23 finale of The Amazing Race, with Jason Case and Amy Diaz.

The Final Four Teams Head To Tokyo

But first, married couple, Nicole and Travis, and Jason and Amy are furious at cousins Leo and Jamal. They team up with exes Tim and Marie to leave Leo and Jamal out in the cold. It’s a temporary alliance, to say the least. When all six contestants touch down in Tokyo, Nicole and Travis are ready to leave Tim and Marie in the dust, only to realize they don’t have an address needed to go to the next clue. In the end, none of the teams gets ahead, and they all follow each other to the next leg of the race.

Leo and Jamal were crafty and changed their flights so that they could land in Tokyo ten

Amazing Race Star Releases New Single to Help Cancer-Stricken Father

Amazing Race Star Releases New Single to Help Cancer-Stricken Father
Jaymes Vaughan wanted to win The Amazing Race to raise funds for his father, who has been battling a rare form of cancer.

The fan favorite, a Chippendales dancer in Las Vegas, came up just short by finishing second, but he hasn't stopped trying to help his dad, Ed Vaughan.

His latest effort: moving up the release date of his new single, "Tonight," when his father's health took a turn for the worse. Proceeds from the song will go toward Ed's care and Jaymes says he was determined to release it while his father is here to see it.

Jim's Notebook: Open to American Horror Story, Portlandia and More!

  • TVfanatic
Another week, another full notebook I need to empty out, as my travels this week have taken me to Toronto and the set of 2013 Netflix series Hemlock Grove (more on that in the new year), but I also managed to grab some good scoop from American Horror Story and Portlandia, while chatting up the hunky runners-up from The Amazing Race.

Let’s go!

American Horror Story: Asylum I’m still a little torn over FX’s hit anthology series. Granted, the stories are all over the place, but I’ve learned that I enjoy the show more when I just climb in and go with wherever it takes me. (Anyone agree? Or disagree? Leave a comment!)

But I absolutely love seeing Jessica Lange be all sorts of crazy as Sister Jude. On the phone this week, the Golden Globe winner for American Horror Story Season 1 talked recently about how different

Interview: Jaymes & James talk 'The Amazing Race'
It wasn't a direct path that Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis took to "Amazing Race" success to into the hearts of fans.   In the first Leg, the two Chippendales performers seemed to embody every himbo stereotype we wanted to pre-judge them with. Mental gaffes caused them to very nearly get eliminated in that initial episode, as they survived only by virtue of being marginally faster than a middle-aged couple.   But then, a funny thing happened. Jaymes & James began to grow on viewers. Their high spirits were infectious and Jaymes was good for two or three quotable lines per...

Interview: "Amazing Race" Winners - The Beekman Boys!

The Amazing Race finish line on Sunday's finale with The Beekman Boys (and host Phil Keoghan).

Nobody was as surprised as Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge (a.k.a. The Beekman Boys) that they were the first to cross the finish line on Sunday’s Amazing Race finale. Often referring to themselves as the underdogs, the gay couple, who have been together for 14 years, beat the odds and throughout the race maintained their integrity. They constantly pushed and supported each other to a million dollar prize.

We talked to Josh and Brent post-finale to get their take on what put them ahead of the other teams (including runners-up Chippendale contestants Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis),and what exactly they plan to do with their newly won million.

AfterElton: So how hard has it been to keep this secret??

Josh Kilmer-Purcell: It’s more fun to keep a secret than to tell people.

Amazing Race's Jaymes and James: We Had a Lot of Taxi Trouble

Don't tell Jaymes and James they lost The Amazing Race yet. "Somebody did actually tweet that we won, so I retweeted it! I was like, "'Yeah!'" Jaymes tells TVGuide.com. "Spreading false information! [We'll] hashtag 'sorry, Josh and Brent'! We're proud of what we got. We got a silver medal in The Amazing Race. That's freakin' awesome. What an accomplishment for two guys who couldn't even find the abacus lady in the first leg to make it to the final leg in the Race." Despite falling behind early on the final leg, the fan-favorite Chippendales made up time at the final Roadblock, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Beekmans. Find out how close they were.

Chippendales' Jaymes & James Talk Coming In 2nd On "The Amazing Race"

Jaymes Vaughan (l) and James Davis celebrate 2nd place on this season's The Amazing Race.

The finale of CBS’s The Amazing Race aired last Sunday night, and we now know that the million dollar prize went to The Beekman Boys, Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner, Brent Ridge.

But making the competition hotter – in more ways than one – were Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, the two Chippendales dancers who proved that not only are they are great to look at but that they also have big hearts.

In fact, one of the more touching points of the show is when Jaymes (the blonde, openly gay one) talked about doing the race for his father, who is currently fighting cancer. The obvious friendship between Jaymes and James (who is straight) was also abundantly clear throughout the race as the guys consistently showed their upbeat, always cheery demeanors as often as their impressive pecs and abs!

TV on Tap: A Potential "Downton Abbey" Departure, Brenda Song is "New Girl"'s New Girl and the Beekman Boys Bake Cookies for the "Amazing Race" Competitors

I guess ABC doesn't worry about Apartment 23 mocking Dancing with the Stars with these ratings.

Over at the website for their farm, Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge write a thank-you post to The Amazing Race team along with pictures of gingerbread cookies inspired by their Amazing Race competitors. There's something encouraging about the sight of Brent's imperfect icing.

Speaking of The Amazing Race, Jaymes has set up a website to take donations for his father's battle against cancer.

Deadline adds to the story about that remake of The Saint that's in the works. Eliza Dushku has joined the pilot as a love interest for the lead character.

Brenda Song is heading to a recurring role on New Girl according to EW. I'm more than a little mixed about the news, I like Song, I like that she'll be playing a love interest for Winston — but I hoped

The Amazing Race Ep. 21.11, “Take Down That Million”: The unthinkable actually happens

The Amazing Race Review, Season 21, Episode 11,

“Take Down That Million”

Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

What truly makes a strong team on The Amazing Race? The obvious answer is athleticism, but plenty of powerful young pairs have left early. Scanning through the winners, most are capable at physical challenges but don’t always stand out as the team to beat. Two weeks ago, Abbie and Ryan were eliminated purposely by the others due to their status as a threat. This felt like the right move because Josh and Brent have struggled at many tasks. Even so, their ease at handling mental challenges made them a deceptive choice to keep afloat. Unlike a show like Survivor, it’s problematic to try and manipulate who sticks around because future legs are unknown. There’s no jury at the end to choose the most worthy player. Instead, all it takes is

Ten legs, eight countries and around 20,000 miles later, after eating fish fallopian tubes, riding adongadongs, dancing in lion masks, hauling bamboo, bathing like Turks, swimming in synch, being robbed blind, playing with street organs, battling devils and charging matadors, all three members of Team Gay made it to the finals.

'The Amazing Race' season 21 winners crowned

Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge have been crowned as the season 21 winners of The Amazing Race. The Beekmans secured the $$1 million grand prize in New York ahead of runners-up Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis and third-placed Trey Wier and Lexi Beerman. Twins Natalie and Nadiya Anderson were earlier eliminated in Loire Valley, France. Josh stated: "We were the underdogs. And what I hope this proves to people whether they're a minority, out of work or they're losing their house or whatever, that if they just keep going and just keep working as hard as they can, people will help and at some time, you will win." His partner Brent added: "This Race really has brought us back together again. I've had to work in the city, and he's on the farm. So winning this Race will actually physically bring us back together again, for the next 50 years." (more)

Who Won 'The Amazing Race 21'?

If ever there was a clear underdog in any season finale of "The Amazing Race" it was the Beekman Boys in Season 21. They'd never won a leg of the race, and more significantly, the other three teams they were racing against were blatantly in an alliance with one another. The Beekman boys were on their own, and they would have to come together in a way they'd never done before.

The first hour saw them sneak past the twins, Nadiya & Natalie, earning a spot in the Final Three. Then, they got home field advantage as the final destination was their home city of New York. But in the end, it came down to remembering how each country they'd visited said "hello" and "goodbye." While the other teams went with a random approach, the Beekmans turned it from a language exercise into a mathematical one.

That strategy worked, as they were the first ones done.

The Amazing Race Finale Recap: And the Million-Dollar Winning Team Is...

It all came down to this.  The Amazing Race two-hour special finale tonight ended by crowning the pair that was named season 21's $1 million winner, but there were plenty of hurdles Lexi and Trey, James and Jaymes, and Josh and Brent had to face before getting to that point.  Here's a little recap of what happened... The 11th leg of the race kicked off with the four teams having to travel by train from Barcelona to Loire Valley, France, and a slight conspiracy. Everyone was trying to formulate a plan to get Josh and Brent (aka the Beekman Boys) out of the race. However, they weren't too discreet about it. With that idea in the back of their heads, the...

The Amazing Race Winners: Crowned!

  • TVfanatic
The Amazing Race has crowned its 21st pair of winners.

Following a two-hour season finale that features a trio of teams - Lexi and Try, James and Jaymes, Josh and Brent - venturing from Europe to New York, the finalists ended up at the United Nations.

Once there, the tandems paired up the words for "hello" and "goodbye" from the nine nations they visited throughout their travels.

And who came out on top of this memory challenge? Josh and Brent!

“We never, ever thought we would hear you say those words to us,” Brent admitted just after Phil Keoghan announced them as champions. We have a feeling many viewers felt the same way, as Josh concluded:

“We were underdogs, and what I hope this proves to people - whether they’re a minority or they’re out of work or they’re losing their house or whatever - if they

'The Amazing Race' instant react: And the season 21 winner is...

Our full recap of The Amazing Race is in the works, but before that goes up, we thought it only right to let you know who took home the $1 million prize.

Tonight’s two-hour finale saw the three final teams — Lexi & Trey, James & Jaymes, and Josh & Brent — travel from Europe to the city that is the main home to EW itself: New York! The teams skittered from Coney Island to the Brooklyn Navy Yard (where one from each team had to escape a straight jacket while hanging upside down!) to Lombardi’s in Little Italy to, finally, the United Nations.
