Emily, an 18-year-old student from Orlando, FL, became the second finalist sent home from American Idol's thirteenth season after she received the fewest home viewer votes cast following Wednesday night's performance show, which featured the Top 12 finalists performing songs that best defined what the word "home" means to them -- whether it be their town, a family member or simply what it represents.
Emily's elimination became official after Idol judges Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban announced they weren't going to prevent her departure by using their one "The Judges' Save" of the season. Emily had been in the bottom three with M.K. Nobilette and Jena Irene.
During a Friday conference call with reporters, Emily talked to Reality TV World about whether she regrets her song choice and how she feels about the apparent wipeout of female contestants so far. Below is what she had to say.
Reality TV World: You had gotten mixed reviews from the judges for your performance of "Let's Get Loud," with Harry kind of bashing the energy of it but Jennifer saying she loved it. So were you surprised to be eliminated, and looking back, do you think maybe choosing a different song -- like one that shows off your vocal range a little more -- could've changed the outcome for you?
Emily Piriz: I mean, ultimately, I'm happy. I wouldn't have changed my song choice because I was going with my gut, with my heart, and that was my No. 1 song choice. And, you know, whether I would've done another song or this one, I think my fans still would have voted for me -- the people that were my fans from Day 1. So, I wasn't really upset with my song choice and I don't think I would've changed it.
Reality TV World: Last season, the girls dominated in that it was American Idol's first-ever all-female Top 6. But three girls have landed in the bottom the last two weeks. Were any of you girls concerned things might play out the way they did in 2010 and 2011 when all the girls seemed to be wiped out early on and the seasons were won by, for lack of a better term, the cute guys with guitars? It seems like this season is on that path.
Emily Piriz: I mean, I guess. But everyone is so talented -- the girls and the guys. So I don't think it has to do with being a guy or a cute guy or, you know, a girl. Everyone has great talent and it's just on our performances. I mean, every performance is make or break. Any one can be your last one, so I think that the girls might start getting worried, but it just gives us motivation to step it up.
Reality TV World: Before Harry announced the judges weren't going to use their one save of the season on you, Jennifer bluntly said the decision wasn't unanimous, and she seemed a little pissed off. Did you ever find out if Jennifer and either of the other two judges voted "yes" on the save to keep you? Did you learn anything about that situation?
Emily Piriz: They didn't tell me, but I assumed that some of them voted -- one or two of them voted yes -- just because of how JLo reacted and how she said that. And I kind of knew it in her face. I could kind of tell. But yeah, afterwards, she was saying that I was one of her favorites, so I was thinking she probably would've voted "yes."
Reality TV World: When most of the other Idol contestants are asked this question, they usually say something like, "Every person left is awesome and they all could win." But do any of the contestants stand out to you in particular for having great potential and what it takes to win the competition this season?
Emily Piriz: I mean, (laughs) I'm going to be just like everybody else. Everyone IS unique. Everyone -- it's hard to say, especially with this group of people. Everyone is different. You can't say one is better than the other because they have totally different sounds. Not one person is the same. So everyone has a great chance of winning and everyone just has to work hard to get there.
Reality TV World: What strengths and weaknesses did you discover about yourself during your American Idol journey?
Emily Piriz: Weaknesses, probably some staging -- just little things I do, like I move too much or I'm thinking too much. There are just little things I needed to work on. And staging, it really helped me [to have] a staging coach. But, you know, strengths -- my confidence and just my optimism, being confident in myself and picking my own songs and staying true to who I am as an artist.
Also during the call, Emily talked to reporters about her American Idol experience -- including what she has to say about Harry as a judge.
Do you think there's something about you singing Jennifer Lopez's "Let's Get Loud" that just didn't connect with the viewers?
Emily Piriz: I'm not sure. Probably just like, I guess what Harry was saying, I needed to bring even more energy that I brought to the stage. But, you know, I don't regret doing that song. That song really means "home" to me and I was happy with my decision.
What do you have to say about Harry's judging? He's very tough sometimes, so did you find that helpful?
Emily Piriz: Yeah, I personally, I liked the way he judged. I know it sounds bad since he was, like, kind of mean to me sometimes, but I liked it just because it's not every day you get somebody telling you what you're doing wrong. It's more of somebody saying, "Oh good job! You sound great."
But if somebody's telling you something that you're doing wrong, you can improve on that and you can fix that. So that's really what he's there for and he's not saying we're horrible singers. He's just nit-picking at things to make us even better than what we already are.
Did you and M.K. talk about potentially landing in the bottom three the night before? Were either of you worried about that?
Emily Piriz: We kind of just sat around and we really don't try to think about those things, but she was like, "I have a feeling I'm going home." And I told her, "No, you're not going home. Don't say that. We never know who's going home." And when we were in that bottom, she was like, "It's me, it's me."
And I was telling her, like, "No it's not. Don't tell yourself that," you know, "it's not." And then when my name got called, I wasn't surprised or shocked. I mean, both of us deserved to be there, so it was okay that I went because she deserved to be where she is. But, yeah.
Did Jennifer have anything to say to you after the show, after you got voted out?
Emily Piriz: She did. It was short. I guess, you know, it was really emotional. I had tears in my eyes and so did she. She was just saying that I was one of her favorites and that I needed to keep on going and not give up because I have something special.
What did having Jennifer's support this season mean to you exactly?
Emily Piriz: Oh my gosh, her support meant everything. Since the first audition ever, she was a huge fan of mine and she told me I was a great singer, the first time I ever sang for her. And you know, I used to be a little girl looking up to her and she was one of my idols. So to have that support from her, it means everything.
Check back with Reality TV World on Monday for more from Emily's interview.
The Bachelor star once again landed himself in the center of controversy after he retweeted a fan's insensitive joke about mentally-handicapped people dubbed "retards" on Thursday, E! News reported.
The tweet read: "Not every flower can save love, but a rose can. Not every plant survives thirst, but a cactus can. Not every retard can read, but look at you go, little buddy! Today you should take a moment and send an encouraging message to a f-cked up friend, just as I've done. I don't care if you lick windows, or interfere with farm animals. You hang in there cup cake, you're f-cking special to me, you're my friend, look at you smiling at your phone! You crayon eating bastard you!"
Galavis reportedly wrote, "JAJAJAJAJA LOVED IT...," alongside the tweet but has since deleted the post.
Despite seemingly trying to cover up his tracks, Galavis tweeted a series of posts afterwards defending his use of the word "retard" in a joking manner.
"I'm BLESSED to speak SPANISH, an OK english and a LITTLE bit of portuguese... For those who DON'T I recommend to LEARN... #Culture," the 32-year-old Venezuela native tweeted yesterday.
"Yeap, an OK english, my WRITING is HORRIBLE but some of you already UNDESTAND me with all my MISTAKES... People, try to be HAPPY and enjoy JOKES and SARCASM... In Venezuela the R word is USED commonly and by NO means is to OFFEND anyone... #Relax #DifferentCulture #Respect."
The reality TV star continued, "Some people need to TRAVEL and get around the WORLD... The US is a GREAT country but there is a LOT out there... #openyourmind #learnculture."
While some of Galavis' gaffes may have been a result of cultural differences, he's also been criticized for going on The Bachelor for fame and dumping on the idea of a future gay The Bachelor star. He said gay men tend to be more "perverted" as justification for why such a casting change may be inappropriate for ABC's show.
During his season, Galavis was also known for sending his bachelorettes mixed signals -- prompting bachelorette Andi Dorfman to call him a "rude, arrogant asshole" after their "disaster" of a fantasy-suite date.
The woman to receive Galavis' final rose also reportedly leaked a nude photo the former pro soccer player sent her recently, and news had surfaced in early January that Galavis is a deadbeat dad who owed his ex-girlfriend thousands of dollars in unpaid child-support payments for their four-year-old daughter Camila.
All of the recent controversies reportedly led ABC to change its mind about wanting Galavis to be a member of Dancing with the Stars' eighteenth-season cast.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and West will exchange vows on May 24 in Paris, People reported.
"It won't be a huge wedding," a source told the magazine. "Around 150 people."
The source is consistent with what Kardashian had told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show late last month, that she and the rapper had a change of heart and are planning a "super, super-small intimate" wedding.
Kardashian recently told People she hasn't picked out her perfect dress to walk down the aisle in yet.
"[I've shopped] a little bit, but I really need a good sit down to plan it all out," the 33-year-old reality TV star explained.
"I'm just really excited for this year. So many exciting things are happening in my life, and I feel so much good energy. It's just going to be the best!"
A family insider also reportedly added, "Kim can't wait to marry Kanye."
A small wedding would seem to please the twice-divorced Keeping Up with the Kardashians star more than West, who has never been married before.
A source told Us Weekly last month, "Kim isn't totally pumped about a huge wedding but she's going along with it."
In October, West noted, "All I know is fighter jets, man," when envisioning his big day during an interview with radio station Power 106FM.
Around the same time, Kardashian admitted to People her wedding will be "whatever [Kanye] wants."
Kardashian had divorced music producer Damon Thomas in 2004 and NBA basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011.
Kardashian began dating West, 36, shortly after her split from Humphries and the couple welcomed their daughter North "Nori" West into the world in June 2013. Kardashian and West then got engaged on the reality TV star's birthday in October of last year.
During Wednesday night's performance show, Harry pretty much bashed nine of the 12 contestants with only C.J. Harris, Malaya Watson and Dexter Roberts escaping his wrath. During Thursday night's live results show on Fox, Harry addressed the contestants about why he was so critical of their performances.
"I don't know if it was as bad as it seemed. I think Harry was having a little indigestion. Him and [judge Keith Urban] were going at it! Harry, what was happening brother? What was happening?!" mentor Randy Jackson asked during last night's broadcast.
"Do I think that these kids are talented? Yes. Do I think that they are immensely talented? Yes. I was not hired as a mentor. I'm envious of Randy. If I were a mentor, guys, I would be at the hotel until 5AM in the morning, working with you. I would give everything to that. I was hired as a judge," Harry told the Top 12.
"I have a very short amount of time to be very specific with information I think will help you grow. You're already here. I don't need to belabor the fact that you are incredible in different ways. I could go on for half-an-hour at least on each one of you. I spend so many hours every day thinking of why you're so great and what can I tell you in response to your performance to help you grow? I'm not going to belabor the fact that you're great. You're grown-ups -- most of you. Some of you are not."
After letting out a little laugh, Harry then gave the group an enormous compliment.
"I think you're all incredibly talented and this is maybe an overstatement, even though I have a harsh look on my face, I think this is the best group of talent since the first season. I've watched every year," Harry admitted.
"But let me say one more thing. However, I didn't see it last night. I've seen all of you sing. We've all seen all of you sing. You are powerhouse talents. You have to treat that stage like it's a church. Let yourself be free. Spend your days walking down the beach and thinking, 'How can I tap into what makes me great and unique?' But I'm a judge. I can't fraternize with you... I'm not going to say things just to say it."
Harry then got a message from New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees in a video. Harry, clearly a huge fan of Drew's, became giddy and called the football star his "hero."
"Harry, you okay buddy? Little harsh on those guys last night," Drew said. "I know it's not football season so you don't have a way to get out that energy, but be a little more positive, a little more encouraging. I know that's your mentality. You look like you're having fun up there, man. Keep it up and I'll be watching," Drew said.
"That's the coolest thing!" Harry yelled with a big smile on his face.
"I promise you this," Harry began. "If Drew throws a bad pass, his coach Sean Payton is not going to come up to him and tell him how handsome he is. He's going to say, 'Look, we got to make this work! What can we do that makes you better?' He's already Drew Brees. You guys are already champs. Just trust me. I love you, I do."
"The judges love you guys. They want you to win!" Randy assured the contestants.
"If it weren't because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already," she told Latina in its April issue.
The Voice coach, 37, is dating professional soccer player Gerard Pique and hopes to have many more children with him.
"I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard -- my own [soccer] team," Shakira said.
"We want the same things, we like the same things, we hate the same things. I have never been with someone so passionate in my life. He's with me because he wants to be with Shakira the person, not the celebrity. There's real love, there's no ulterior motives."
Shakira tends to be very open about her personal life on social media and has posted numerous photos of her family.
"When you have a baby, when you feel his love, you feel so at peace with the world. You just want to share the good news and share how happy you feel," Shakira explained.
"I have so many people out there that celebrate with me when they know that I'm happy -- In a way I feel supported and, in a very strange way, accompanied through life. [My fans] express so much love for Milan, so much affection. I can only hope that as he grows up, he learns how to give that love back to all of those people that give him so much every day."
Shakira also talked to Latina about her upcoming album, which she's currently recording. She said it will feature reggae, rock, folk, and dance influences.
"I will always be a little bit of everything. There was a lot of fighting with myself about what direction I wanted to go. Throughout the process there were songs that I used to love at that moment and then hated a few minutes later," the singer explained, adding that she'll also be getting back into the studio soon to record another Spanish-language album.
"The relationship I have with my Hispanic fans is very deep and intricate. It's like a 20-year marriage, but with a lot of passion, with a lot of sex. There’s mutual understanding and trust."
Shakira said motherhood has actually improved her concentration at work.
"I used to go in circles around an idea, but since he arrived I don't have much time -- I have to rush back home -- so he has helped me learn how to focus," Shakira told the magazine.
In addition, Shakira explained why she loves serving as a mentor on The Voice alongside fellow coaches Usher, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The show is currently airing it's sixth season.
"When you're an artist, you're so focused on your own [career]. It's funny to see me in this role of being a mentor and helping out other young singers achieve their own goals and shape their artistic personality," Shakira said.
Fox has announced the twelfth season of Hell's Kitchen starring Chef Gordon Ramsay will premiere Thursday, March 13 at 8PM ET/PT on Fox.
Hell's Kitchen's debut will immediately be followed by American Idol's next thirteenth-season live results show in its new timeslot at 9PM ET/PT. Beginning on March 27, Idol's results shows will only be half-hour long broadcasts.
In the twelfth-season premiere of Hell's Kitchen, Ramsay will split his batch of 20 aspiring restaurateurs into two teams, men vs. women, and require them to present their signature dishes. The winning team will be rewarded with an exclusive dinner with Ramsay, while the losing team will be forced to scrub down the kitchen.
During each Hell's Kitchen episode, the losing team in the challenge must put two contestants on the chopping block, and then Ramsay will eliminate one chef. After weeks of cooking challenges and dinner services, the two finalists will then compete head-to-head in attempt to impress Ramsay one last time and win the grand prize.
Hell's Kitchen is produced by ITV Studios America in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions, with Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Ramsay serving as executive producers.
The Kentucky team, which started out as Mark and his best friend William "Bopper" Minton -- who became ill just before the Race began and therefore was forced to withdraw from the competition -- became the second team eliminated from the around-the-world competition after they arrived at the Race's second Pit Stop at the promenade on Shamian Island in Guangzhou, China in last place.
In an exclusive interview with Reality TV World, Mark and Mallory recently talked about their short-lived The Amazing Race experience. Below is the concluding portion of their interview. Click here to read the first half.
Reality TV World: How long did the "Featherball" Detour task take you guys? Because you did get there still ahead of two teams. And also, did you ever consider switching to the other "China Cup" task?
Mallory Ervin: We did, yes.
Mark Jackson: Yes, we did.
Mallory Ervin: I wanted to switch, yeah. But Mark, you know...
Mark Jackson: If we would've switched, we would've had to go find a taxi, we would've had to get there, and like I said, there were two teams behind us and I knew they couldn't have been too far behind us.
Mallory Ervin: Yeah, you never know how far something is. I think that's just -- I listened to [Mark]. I wanted to switch, maybe, or consider it. And Mark just didn't want to, so at that point, I think we were just kind of give and take -- agree to disagree and try to make it through. So I see his point and I see my point on it.
And also, we had I'd say probably the worst team -- I'm not going to sit here and blame it on them -- but [the locals] really wouldn't go outside the bounds and save the featherball like they did with the other teams. If you watch it back, you know, and we can of wanted to switch teams.
I go, "Do you think we should switch teams?" And Mark's more of a -- he's like my dad in a way, like, "No, we're just going to finish this out here." It's more of a grounded way, whereas I'm a spazz sometimes, but sometimes that works. So I wanted to switch teams and maybe we -- as soon as we got with the other team, when we switched at the end, we got it immediately on the first time. First time, Mark?
Mark Jackson: It was the second time or it was the first, pretty close. It took us 10 minutes and we had already been there probably 30 or 40 minutes.
Reality TV World: Mark, what did Bopper have to say once you got home? Did he understand, was he disappointed?
Mark Jackson: Well, he understood, but you could tell he was very -- I mean, I could tell. I talked to his wife and when he walked through the door when he got back, they just started bawling. I know that's how he would be, and I know that he wanted me to go but he wanted to be with me more than he wanted me to go.
It just ripped him apart and it killed me too. But he took it pretty good and I don't think he'll ever feel right about it if we don't do it again some time. I don't know how -- he's just devastated and I can't blame him.
Reality TV World: Mark had mentioned during the first two episodes you two needed to learn each other's strengths and weaknesses. Did you have a chance to figure that out about one another at all or did you simply need more time? Did you figure out at least how you complemented each other?
Mark Jackson: We didn't have enough time. We just learned a little bit about each other -- family's lives and all that stuff -- but we just didn't have enough time to just really get to sit down with each other and just say, "Listen, what do you do? What do I do? I'm good at this. I'm good at that. I know how to do this. I'm pretty good at that." But we just didn't have no time to really sit down and talk about everything.
Mallory Ervin: But I also think, like, you can't plan for anything really on the Race. You can automatically go in there without the disadvantages that we had and be much better off, but I gave up everything to go and race with Mark, because I knew -- I thought that he was a good guy.
I've met him only a few times and there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to help him, and I felt that I knew the kind of person he was. That's why I wanted him to be able to race. And even though I wasn't in as good of shape and I could've done worse and I wasn't prepared, I feel like I knew Mark enough to make that decision, and I don't regret it.
Mark Jackson: And it was a perfect decision. Like I said, we just ran into a few little bumbles, and I mean, we know each other probably more now than we did before we started the Race.
Mallory Ervin: Mhmm.
Mark Jackson: And that's -- it was a rough time to just jump out there and go when you don't really know each other real, real well.
Reality TV World: Mallory, could you talk about how your participation in the Race with Mark even came about? Was it a very last-minute phone call or did the show have you as a standby Racer for awhile in case something happened?
Mallory Ervin: No, it was totally last minute. I mean, they sent Mark and Bopper out there to race, so it was only a few days before they were about to start the Race. And they made the decision while they were in LA, like they showed on the first episode, [Bopper] couldn't race. I guess he was getting worse as those few days went on.
So they called me, they said, "How far are you from the New York airport? And do you have your backpack?" And literally, I was on a plane within five hours and packed as good as I could, and I was in Nashville so I had to take my mom's backpack because mine was in Kentucky. And I got on the plane, I came there, and it was maybe a day or a day-and-a-half and I was on the starting line.
So it was really sad. I thought I was on Survivor or The Biggest Loser for the longest time. I was asking everyone, "Are you my partner!?" I was so confused about everything, because I didn't see Mark and Bopper when I first got there. I eventually did, but it's just such a different experience. It was crazy. It was a whirlwind to say the least.
Reality TV World: Mallory, you made a couple emotional statements about how you really wanted to help Mark and Bopper and you were racing for Bopper and what not. And some viewers interpreted that as you were running the Race with Mark but solely as Bopper's replacement, meaning that if you two were to win, you were going to give your prize money to Bopper. Would you mind talking about that a little bit? Was that not the case?
Mallory Ervin: Sure, no that's not the case at all. I was going to give part of my winnings to Bopper just because, without him, I wouldn't have had the opportunity. I was running the Race with Mark. I wouldn't have turned around to get the backpack if I wasn't. I would've said, "No," running it for myself. There were a lot of things that I gave in on that, if I were running it as just Bopper's replacement, no.
I was running it for everyone -- for Mark, for Bopper, for my dad, for every fan that we've had or not had. I was running it because I love the Race. I mean, I was definitely on his team, not just as Bopper's replacement.
And I hope Mark didn't see me like that. That's how I felt sometimes, that he just kept being so upset about Bopper not being there instead of thanking me and, "Let's just go on and push through this and see what we can do." I just, no, I was racing with Mark.
Reality TV World: What did you guys think of Cord McCoy and Jet McCoy's decision to give their extra Express Pass to Jennifer Wayne and Caroline Cutbirth? Do you think that was wise or that the girls pretty much manipulated them? Meghan Caramena was shown saying she thought it was kind of a slap in the face to women everywhere that "The Country Singers" weren't really doing things on their own.
Mark Jackson: Well, that's just part of the Race! They was good enough to get it so they got it and that was it. Everybody would've liked to have it and they just got it, I mean.
Mallory Ervin: Yeah, we were surprised because we honestly thought that whoever got it would give it to us because they saw what a disadvantage we were at, like as the Race started to go on with the communication and stuff, so I was kind of disappointed in a way. But now watching it back, I see.
Mark Jackson: They would've gave it to us, I think, but we left that [toy car task] in first place. And if they hadn't given it to them, they would still be out there doing that right now.

Chmerkovskiy says he was offered the chance to become a regular judge on the upcoming season's judging panel after a two-season hiatus but said he opted to make his comeback as a pro dancer instead.
"I had that option. I can't reveal a lot, but I was offered a judge's position on the show. This was my decision [to return as a pro], Chmerkovskiy told NBC's Today show.
Chmerkovskiy was absent from Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth and seventeenth seasons, however, he served as a guest judge in one episode last season when mainstay judge Len Goodman needed a fill-in.
Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli have been Dancing with the Stars' three judges dating all the way back to the show's first season, and Chmerkovskiy's invitation to join the panel would have seemingly resulted in one of those three judges being given the boot by ABC.
However, shakeup wouldn't have been entirely surprising since ABC already fired Brooke Burke-Charvet as co-host as well as longtime Dancing with the Stars music director Harold Wheeler and his 28-member orchestra. The show is replacing Burke-Charvet with sports broadcaster Erin Andrews and Wheeler with former American Idol music director Ray Chew and his line-up of live musicians.
While Chmerkovskiy declined the opportunity to become a judge on the reality dancing competition, he admitted to Today he had second thoughts about even returning as a pro dancer.
"There was a moment when I asked myself, 'Why? Why? Why? You've done enough! Another 10 weeks of routines and stress and pressure?'" he said.
Chmerkovskiy has made it to Dancing with the Stars' Final 3 four times yet never won a title. He first appeared as a pro on the show's second season and has competed in 14 seasons total.
Chmerkovskiy is set to be paired with Sochi Olympics ice dancing gold medalist Meryl Davis for Dancing with the Stars' upcoming eighteenth season, which premieres Monday, March 17 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Rosie and her husband Daron Pope have welcomed another daughter into the world.
"Our newest little love is here! Bridget Monroe was born just before 5 AM and is 7 lbs 12 oz of perfection. Can't wait to share more soon!" Rosie tweeted Thursday.
The 34-year-old reality TV star and Bridget are "doing great," Rosie's representative told Us Weekly.
Daron and Rosie -- who operates Rosie Pope Maternity business, which is a high-end maternity brand for "sophisticated urban mothers" -- are already parents to Vivienne, 21 months, Wellington, 3, and J.R., 5.
The couple announced in late August they were expecting their fourth child and "thrilled with the news."
Brice, a 27-year-old social worker from Philadelphia, PA, was voted out of his Beauty tribe at the season's third Tribal Council session after four tribemates formed an alliance against himself and Morgan McLeod. Brice and Morgan thought they had Jeremiah Wood on their side but it turned out Jeremiah had joined forces with the other group.
In an exclusive interview with Reality TV World on Thursday, Brice talked about his short-lived Survivor experience. Below is the first half of Brice's interview. Check back with us soon for the concluding portion.
Reality TV World: Hey Brice, how are you doing?
Brice Johnston: I'm still beautiful!
Reality TV World: (Laughs) So were you completely surprised to be voted off, or had you already gone into Tribal Council worried that Jeremiah was pretty shaky and wasn't going to vote with Morgan and yourself?
Brice Johnston: I mean, I'm not dumb by any means, so I was going into Tribal Council thinking, "It's probably going to be me but I'm going to give it my best shot and still stick with the plan we had talked about."
Reality TV World: How did you feel specifically about Jefra Bland's vote going into Tribal? Last night's episode showed you saying you weren't worried because you trusted Jeremiah and Morgan, but it sounds like that was kind of just the editing or something?
Brice Johnston: I mean, there's a lot of scrambling before Tribal, and you can see who talks to who, and you can really get into people's body language. So I mean, I would be a dummy to say I went in thinking, "Oh, it's not going to be me!"
I was realistic about it and I thought, "It probably could be me or probably not, but I'm definitely going to try and, you know, keep my word." Because I'm from Philly, and in Philly, your word is everything. So I definitely kept my word, and you know, moved forward.
Reality TV World: Did you feel you were going to be the one voted off as soon as Jeff Probst revealed the three-way tie or did you feel it could still end up being Morgan? What was going through your mind at that point?
Brice Johnston: I kind of was shocked with the three-way tie. I kind of just, at that moment, I was shocked. And at that moment, I didn't realize that Jeremiah betrayed us, and so I looked at Morgan and Morgan gave me that look. And I'm like, "Oh, wait a minute, yeah he definitely didn't betray us." And then I kind of felt like, yeah, they're going gung ho for the cutest person on the island, of course.
Reality TV World: So did you, Morgan or Jeremiah say anything before the re-vote took place, or how did that play out?
Brice Johnston: We just waited. We just waited and looked at each other. (Laughs)
Reality TV World: Okay, so you didn't state a case as to why you should stay over Morgan or vice versa?
Brice Johnston: Not at that point in time.
Reality TV World: Why were you and Morgan so sure Jeremiah was in your alliance earlier on and not with LJ McKanas, Alexis Maxwell and Jefra?
Brice Johnston: You know, Jeremiah approached us with that alliance, so it wasn't like Morgan and I tried to bamboozle him. He approached us with it. So we kind of felt like, you know, Jeremiah was tired of LJ running [rampant] at the camp.
So we wanted to make Jeremiah feel like he could run the camp even though secretly they weren't running the camp -- Brice was running the camp, because Brice was doing everything.
So Jeremiah had approached us with that idea, so we just kind of felt like, "Okay, we'll go with it," because Morgan and I knew that we were on the bottom and it was those four against us two, so what do we have to lose but explore our options?
Reality TV World: Do you think Jeremiah had ever really considered himself a true part of your alliance with Morgan but then changed his mind and decided to flip and go with LJ and the two girls? Or do you think Jeremiah had always considered himself allied with LJ's group and was just stringing you and Morgan along the entire time?
Brice Johnston: Jeremiah is not that smart, so I don't think that he had the mental capacity to double trick us. I think he was really working with us and then kind of got cold feet, because you know, all he does is take pictures.
He doesn't (laughs) really do anything. So I think he got cold feet and he just wanted to go with what he felt more comfortable with -- those four instead of us three. But I definitely think he was considering it, absolutely.
Reality TV World: You were shown saying you felt Jefra felt way more comfortable with Jeremiah than LJ. What did you mean by that?
Brice Johnston: Because I had that country thing going, and you know, I just felt like they were more comfortable with people that were country. So I definitely felt she would have felt more comfortable with Jeremiah, because they both got those heavy country accents that you can barely understand what they're saying.
Reality TV World: What made you decide to try and vote off Alexis instead of Jefra? Was it because you thought Jefra would be easier to convince to vote with you versus Alexis, or what was the reasoning?
Brice Johnston: Definitely. It wasn't anything personal with Alexis. It was just numbers. She spent a lot of time with LJ and I just felt like that was one of LJ's numbers so we needed to get rid of the numbers for LJ. So it was, you know, Alexis. And Morgan felt like she had a good relationship with Jefra, so that's just kind of how that worked out.
Reality TV World: Last night's episode seemed to show Jefra telling Morgan that she would be okay helping you guys vote off LJ but she didn't want to vote Alexis off because they were good friends. Did you know that while you were out there, and if so -- I know it wouldn't have been ideal to lose LJ's strength -- but why not take Jefra up on her offer since she seemed willing to get rid of LJ?
Brice Johnston: Well, we didn't believe that Jefra would vote out LJ, and we kind of knew -- we just didn't believe that. And at that point in time, I'm thinking about the merge and I'm thinking about, "LJ has to go but it's not his time right now. We need him definitely for the challenges. He's great with the puzzles."
So we didn't want to take LJ out just now. He was one of those people that needed to stay around a little bit longer. So we wanted to take out somebody that he was working with so that we would have the numbers. That was kind of our thinking about it.
Reality TV World: So even though you had just seen the Brains kind of make the unusual move of voting out their strong guys first, you didn't want to follow suit?
Brice Johnston: Definitely not, no. We wanted to remain on top and win challenges until we got merged.
Reality TV World: Did you really believe LJ was going to try and vote Jeremiah off next after you, or did you just tell Jeremiah that to try and convince him to stay aligned with you?
Brice Johnston: I believed that because I knew LJ wants to be in control and I knew LJ saw me as a threat and I know he saw Jeremiah as a threat. Because, you know, well I had a dominating personality and Jeremiah just looks like he could do something -- looks like he could do something. So I know LJ was probably a little bit paranoid about that as well.
Reality TV World: Would you mind elaborating on how you think Jeremiah "looks" like he could do something?
Brice Johnston: I mean, plain and simple, he looks like he could do something. I don't think -- Jeremiah's not the brightest crayon in the crayon box, so.
Reality TV World: Okay. So, do you mean just mentally or physically as well?
Brice Johnston: Yeah, I think both. Look at the challenge last night, you know, I really think Jeremiah messed up that puzzle challenge. I think he was our downfall. Everyone was doing great until he got to that puzzle because he didn't know his left from his right. He got confused.
Reality TV World: I was going to ask about that. LJ and Jeremiah seemed to really struggle with the maze part of last night's challenge and that did seem to be the reason you guys lost, but I thought that'd result in more conversations about voting LJ off and we didn't see that. So it sounds like those discussions never took place because you still needed to keep his strength around?
Brice Johnston: Definitely. And you also have to remember Morgan and I were on the outs, and like I said last night, they did not want to talk strategy with us. They were like, "This is our alliance and that's what it is."
So they really didn't talk strategy with us. LJ had his horses on a tight rein. It was very hard for Morgan and I to do -- to have any type of conversation with anybody without, you know, Horse Master LJ catching wind.
Above is the first half of Brice's exclusive interview with Reality TV World. Check back with us soon for the concluding portion.
The Bachelor bachelorette has posted a photo of herself and her still-unidentified fiance together on Instagram. The couple is smiling ear-to-ear while wearing hats and casual clothing. The man has his arm draped over Oteri's shoulder and she's holding his hand.
With what appears to be a diamond engagement ring on her left hand's ring finger, Oteri captioned the cute photo, "My forever."
A source told Us Weekly that Oteri had gotten engaged around the same time the bachelorette posted the photo on Monday.
"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time! We're all so happy to see them back together!" the source told Us earlier this week. "He is always the one everyone wanted to see her with! She couldn't be happier."
The source also claimed the 32-year-old single mom and her eight-year-old son Ben are leaving Florida and moving across the country to be with her new fiance in Seattle, WA.
Oteri's Instagram has also confirmed she's "now living in Seattle."
Oteri was sent home during an eighteenth-season episode of The Bachelor last month although her elimination filmed back in October.
The mystery man is a childhood best friend of Oteri's who was also her first kiss, and according to Wetpaint Entertainment, they actually dated after Oteri had divorced her ex-husband in 2008 following four years of marriage.
The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis ousted Oteri in favor of three other bachelorettes just after visiting her hometown in Sarasota and meeting Ben and her family.
Khloe has purchased troubled singer Justin Bieber's Calabasas home, which is in the same neighborhood where Kourtney bought a house earlier this year, Us Weekly reported.
Khloe's new house is in a gated community called The Oaks, according to sources, and Bieber had purchased the home in 2012 but quickly and quietly put it back on the market after experiencing some clashes with his neighbors over his behavior, which included an alleged egging incident and driving recklessly around the area.
One of the neighbors who reportedly ran into problems with Bieber was former NFL star and Dancing with the Stars participant Keyshawn Johnson. Ironically, Kourtney recently bought Johnson's house and is moving in with her boyfriend Scott Disick and two children Mason and Penelope.
Khloe is putting herself up in a new place shortly after she sold her $3.95 million home in Tarzana, CA, in January following her divorce filing from Lamar Odom. The pair put the house on the market for $5.499 million and it was purchased by actress Kaley Cuoco, Us reported.
Khloe, 29, filed for divorce from Lamar, her 34-year-old husband of four years, in early December following endless reports Lamar had a devastating addiction to crack cocaine and cheated on her multiple times.
Jennifer admitted to the contestants the judges were being hard on them, but it became increasingly clear over the course of the night they were just being honest. Jennifer, Keith and Harry said they're looking for breakout performances, ones that will wow the audience and bring them out of their chairs. However, the finalists just aren't measuring up to those standards yet.
During Wednesday night's show, the Top 12 thirteenth-season finalists were asked to sing a song that best defines the word "home" for them -- whether it's about their town, a family member or simply what home represents.
Malaya Watson, Dexter Roberts and Caleb Johnson are the only singers who received fairly positive feedback from the judges, while everyone else pretty much got canned. Harry was especially displeased and disappointed with most of the performances.
Jena Irene sang "Suddenly I See" by KT Tunstall.
"I'm not mad about that specific song for you... [but] I think you can loosen up even more. You really can," Keith told her.
"I really wanted to see you be your age and jump... I was waiting for you to bust out. You're 17, you should be climbing all over the ceiling with that song! It was great to see that energy, but I wanted more," Harry said.
Alex Preston performed "I Don't Wanna Be" by Gavin DeGraw.
"As far as the song goes, it wasn't your best vocal performance for me. I felt like the arrangement you did, didn't quite suit the song. For me, I love that song. I'm sorry. [The arrangement] really overtook your vocal and performance. You have to be careful with that balance," Jennifer explained.
"I didn't really like it as much as I've liked some of the other things you've done. It just sounded like... you were a little bit overpowered," Harry noted.
"The word 'instability' kept coming to me within the performance because it was almost like you weren't quite sure about how to be within the arrangement... The song was kind of around you instead of you centering and being in the song. Another thing that gives it away is you start losing your breath at the end of phrases and the pitch starts to drift as well," Keith said.
Jessica Meuse sang "White Flag" by Dido.
"It felt kind of understated and actually a little bit blazay... You were sharp the whole time and I saw something that very rarely happens on American Idol. When anybody hits a high note on that stage, everyone unanimously applauds. It didn't happen this time. And here's why I think," Harry told her.
"You were so off [tune], I think people can honestly hear that and I'm not really sure what's going on. I just felt like you weren't really present throughout the performance."
"I feel like you feel like you're comfortable. It's still not coming off that way unfortunately," Jennifer said. And what we want, at this point... is superstar performances. It was so sharp throughout the whole thing that it was a bit distracting. But at the same time, if you would've been singing with so much more conviction, it would've overpowered that. It just didn't happen today."
Emily Piriz sang "Let's Get Loud" by Jennifer.
"That song is like a big locomotive train going down the tracks. The people were into that song even before you came out, so that's kind of a big crutch you have. You have to match the intensity of the locomotive train otherwise you're just going to be a passenger on the train," Harry told her.
"You need to drive the train. You can't go and huddle up next to the musician. You need to come out here and sing and perform that song. The song, the production, was too big for you tonight."
MK Nobilette performed "Drops of Jupiter" by Train.
"Your vocals are fine, but for me, you need to work on connecting how you look with how you sing. Because right now, I feel like those two things aren't coming together," Keith noted.
"Again, it wasn't a breakout performance. And I feel like at this point in the competition, we really need that from you guys, although I do feel you pushing," Jennifer told MK.
"MK, I still get the feeling that you don't really want to be here. There are glimpses of joy in your performances... practice the things that make you uncomfortable. Work on the things that are hard... Try to sing in tune... and you will improve," Harry said.
C.J. Harris performed "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer.
"All that's missing now, I think for me, is you figuring out a way to make a song more your own. Sometimes I don't know how to do that. You have to figure that out as an artist -- to not just do a straight cover. You have to do something different to the song otherwise it just ends up being a cover... It's like where are you in this? Where is your artistic take in it?" Keith told C.J.
Sam Woolf sang "Just One" by Blind Pilot.
"The thing that keeps coming to mind for me about you is sort of emotional dynamics. There has to be change, not only musical dynamics... but the emotional dynamics -- the growth, the change, the push. I'm starting to feel there's one beat when you sing emotionally and that's all I've really heard since you started the competition. I think you need to try something else," Harry explained.
"Again, we're at the point in the competition where we need to start seeing some more super-wow performances, and there's a certain thing that you do, but at the same time, you have to push outside your comfort zone," Jennifer added.
Ben Briley took the stage with "Turning Home" by Davis Nail.
"I did not connect with it. It felt shouted to me... Everyone in this room is talented but I'm just waiting for a knockout performance and I have not really seen it. I haven't seen it and I don't think everybody disagrees with me. It was okay. It wasn't great! It wasn't great," Harry told Ben.
"In the case of that song there, for me, there was so much focus on the technicality of the notes and the range and everything else, I lost the story. I lost the emotion from you. My advice to you is worry a lot less about the technicality... You could actually lean into the mic, close your eyes and sing, and not move a muscle, and you would hit me way more. Because you've got that kind of voice," Keith explained.
Majesty Rose performed "Fix You" by Coldplay.
"I loved the beginning but I wish you had stayed in that quiet zone. It kind of threw me off," Harry noted.
"You don't always have to go for the big thing... Where you had us was great and then you tried to do something and it didn't quite work out," Jennifer explained.
"I'd be repeating what they said," Keith added.
One of American Idol's Top 12 thirteenth-season finalists will be eliminated during Thursday night's live results show at 8PM ET/PT on Fox.
Brice, a 27-year-old social worker from Philadelphia, PA, was voted out of his Beauty tribe at the season's third Tribal Council session.
"I'm definitely a little upset with [Jeremiah Wood]. He definitely kind of betrayed my trust, but it's okay. I'm sure he doesn't really understand what happened, and you know, I'm surprised he can even spell my name. But clearly, they wanted the cutest, most fashionable member out first, so I'm glad to take that title with bells and whistles on. I really hope [Morgan McLeod] does well, and to the rest of the people, I don't even remember their names," Brice said following his ouster.
The members of the Beauty tribe were Brice; Jeremiah, a 34-year-old male model from Dobson, NC; Morgan, a 21-year-old former NFL cheerleader from San Jose, CA; Alexis Maxwell, a 21-year-old student from Addison, IL; Jefra Bland, a 22-year-old former Miss Kentucky Teen USA from Campbellsville, KY; and LJ McKanas, a 34-year-old horse trainer from Boston, MA.
The Brawn tribe was comprised of Cliff Robinson, a 46-year-old former NBA All-Star from Newark, NJ; Lindsey Ogle, a 29-year-old hairstylist from Kokomo, IN; Sarah Lacina, a 29-year-old police officer from Cedar Rapids, IA; Tony Vlachos, a 39-year-old police officer from Jersey City, NJ; Trish Hegarty, a 48-year-old pilates instructor from Needham, MA; and Yung "Woo" Hwang, a 29-year-old martial arts instructor from Newport Beach, CA.
The Brains tribe featured J'Tia Taylor, a 31-year-old nuclear engineer from Chicago, IL; Kassandra "Kass" McQuillen, a 41-year-old attorney from Tehachapi, CA; Latasha "Tasha" Fox, a 37-year-old accountant from St. Louis, MO; and Spencer Bledsoe, a 21-year-old student from Chicago, IL.
Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty's second episode began with the Brains tribe returning from Tribal after voting out Garrett Adelstein and David Samson on Night 6.
Spencer said Garrett was so bad at the game of Survivor, Kass had decided to keep the girl who threw out their food over him. Tasha agreed with Spencer that J'Tia would've been gone if they had been allowed private conversations and Garrett hadn't forced an open-forum discussion upon them.
Tasha, however, wanted to form in an all-female alliance going forward with Kass and J'Tia, and both of those girls were onboard with the idea as well.
"I honestly didn't know who I'd vote for when I went into Tribal, but then you think about Garrett. He's fun to look at but you don't want to play with him. And then I thought, 'J'Tia's got a temper, but you can replace rice,' and now she's scared, so I think she'll be loyal to me," Kass said in a confessional.
Kass asked Tasha not to betray her and side with Spencer, but Tasha's reply was "hell no." Spencer knew he had some scrambling to do.
Over at the Brawn tribe's camp, Tony felt alone so he decided to finally admit to Sarah he was a police officer just like her. She said she knew it all along and felt like she had won the lottery. The pair then formed a "Cops R Us" alliance and Sarah said they'd be partners in crime for the rest of the game.
To make sure Sarah stuck with him, Tony lied and told her that Cliff and they must choose between Cliff and Lindsey had brought up her name. Tony explained they wanted her out before Trish because she was "too smart."
Tony reminded her it was them against the world and that she shouldn't trust anyone else. Sarah was ready to stand by Tony and be completely loyal to him, whereas Tony admitted he was willing to say anything and swear on anyone to get further in the game.
That night, the rain poured, the winds were strong and everyone was freezing right into the next morning.
At Brawn's camp, on Day 7, Woo seemed to be the only person enjoying the horrible weather because it was the Survivor experience.
"This is what I envision hell would be like," Tony noted.
Tony told Sarah that Cliff was the main person who wanted her gone. Tony lied and said Cliff had been convincing Lindsey to get rid of her despite Lindsey's hesitation. Tony had previously voiced in the premiere how Cliff was his No. 1 target for being such a strong and popular guy. Sarah became paranoid and Tony requested she never panic and then go behind his back with any information he's given her.
"He knows I'll be loyal to him. I know he'll be loyal to me. We shook on it again today and it was the most sincere handshake you'll ever have in your life. So I trust him 110 percent," Sarah told the cameras.
Tony still trusted no one and wrongly assumed no one trusted him either.
On Day 7, everyone on the Beauty tribe was miserable. Jefra was having an especially tough time. LJ, annoyed, said Jefra was doing a lot of complaining without a lot of doing. They had a lot of work to do in continuing to build the shelter in the storm, and with the girls contributing very little, LJ said the "beauty" stereotype in the game was starting to come into play.
However, he planned to keep his mouth shut as to not rock the boat and potentially become a target. He also thought Morgan had found a clue to the hidden Immunity Idol when he caught her looking around the rocks on Day 1. LJ decided to take a look around the same area in hopes of finding the idol, and that he did. LJ intended to keep the idol a secret and said no one would ever know until he decided to play it.
On Day 8, the Brains tribe received Tree Mail and learned they'd probably receive a tarp as long as they didn't finish in last place. Tasha was annoyed at J'Tia's constant hunger since she was the one who eliminated nearly 95 percent of their supply of rice. With a couple hints as to what the next challenge might entail, the tribe practiced in the water, not knowing whether it would help them or end up being completely useless.
"It's definitely weird being the only guy in the tribe. I have to be patient, I have to manage my emotions, not get too down, and I have to just take my shot to get out of this tribe alive," Spencer said in a confessional.
Later on, the three tribes met Survivor host Jeff Probst, who explained the rules to what would be their third Immunity Challenge.
For the challenge, each tribe was required to use a bucket to scoop water from the ocean and then work together to pass the water from tribemate to tribemate and ultimately into a large container. When the container filled up, it would drop, releasing a ball. Two tribemates must then use that ball to solve a vertical maze.
The first two tribes to finish would win immunity, and one member of the losing tribe would be voted out at the season's third Tribal Council.
In addition, the tribes were playing for Reward. The first-place tribe would receive comfort and shelter in the form of blankets, pillows, a mosquito net, and a tarp. The second-place tribe would receive shelter but not comfort in the form of a tarp.
To even up the numbers, the Brawn tribe sat out Tony and Lindsey, and the Beauty tribe sat out Jefra and Alexis.
The Brains tribe, once again, got off to a terrible start. Brawn ended up coming in first place, but then Brains caught up to the Beauty tribe during the maze portion of the challenge. Therefore, Brains finished in second place and Beauty came in last place. J'Tia literally cried in happiness that her tribe wouldn't have to go to Tribal Council again.
On Day 8, over at the Brawn's camp, Tony looked through their entire Reward package and found another clue to a hidden Immunity Idol. Although he already found the idol, he took it and hid it so that no one else would try to look for it. Tony didn't understand why he was the only person smart enough to look in their Reward packages for clues.
At Beauty's camp, Alexis thought the energy in their tribe was going to turn "dark and negative" after losing the challenge.
LJ, Jeremiah, Alexis, and Jefra were all on the same page when it came to wanting either Morgan or Brice out next. LJ, however, thought Brice would be a tough competitor at the end of the game, so he wanted Brice gone. Brice had a feeling he may be on the chopping block because he was a social threat, so he feared for his position in the game.
But Brice really trusted Jeremiah and thought they'd target a girl like Alexis first. Jeremiah told Brice he'd definitely be down to vote out Alexis, so Jeremiah was clearly playing both sides of his tribe.
"LJ thinks he has an alliance of Alexis, Jefra, Jeremiah and himself, but in reality, Jeremiah's with Brice and I," Morgan told the cameras. "Tonight for the vote, we just have to get Jefra in there with us to make a 4-2 vote."
Morgan then told Jefra to vote out Alexis with them even though they were friends. Jefra suggested LJ over Alexis, but Morgan insisted they needed LJ for the challenges. Because Jefra didn't really know where Jeremiah stood, she wanted to talk to him personally. Jeremiah then assured Jefra he was still with her, LJ, and Alexis in voting out Brice. It seemed like everyone thought they had Jeremiah's loyalty, and he felt "stuck."
Afterward, Alexis spoke to Jefra and Jeremiah about -- with LJ as well -- splitting their votes between Brice and Morgan in case either of them had a hidden Immunity Idol in their possession. The guys would vote for Morgan and the girls would vote for Brice. With Brice and Morgan voting for Alexis, it would result in a three-way tie.
Jeremiah knew he would be right in the middle of that and basically serve as the swing vote for either side. He just cared about being a part of the numbers majority.
Meanwhile, Brice trusted Jeremiah and Morgan and felt Jefra was much more comfortable with Jeremiah than LJ, so he thought they'd have her with them. Regardless, Brice knew alliances were going to be exposed at the next Tribal Council and people were going to be put in their place.
"I have a big decision on my hands tonight... Going into Tribal Council knowing that I have all the power is an amazing feeling, but I'm just this country guy and I don't like hurting nobody's feelings. And after I make this vote, somebody's feelings are going to be hurt and somebody's going to lose their trust in me, and that's probably going to hurt me more than anything," Jeremiah said in a confessional.
That night, Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs Brains vs Beauty's six members of the Beauty tribe arrived for their first Tribal Council session -- the third session of the season overall.
Jefra told Jeff that there wasn't much strategy talk going on prior to losing the Immunity Challenge, but Brice disagreed, which caught her offguard. Brice then announced that Jeremiah and LJ were together a lot, Jefra and Alexis were together a lot, and those pairs sometimes became a foursome -- leaving himself and Morgan out.
Brice was sure Alexis was gunning for him because they hadn't spoken about anything. He suggested she wasn't pulling her weight around camp, and Alexis was concerned about getting voted out as well. Brice also noted everyone was aware a hidden Immunity Idol might be in play.
Jeff then revealed the castaways' votes. Two people voted for Brice, two castaways voted for Alexis, and two players voted for Morgan. The three-way tie happened.
Everyone cast their votes again, except this time, Alexis, Morgan and Brice could not vote and everyone else had to vote for one of the three castaways in jeopardy.
When the re-vote was revealed by Jeff, two votes were cast for Brice, which was enough to oust him from the game. That means Jeremiah decided to work with Alexis, Jefra and LJ instead of Brice and Morgan. Going forward, it appears that Morgan will be on the outs of her Beauty tribe.
