With the help of a surfboard, a teenage girl saves three men from certain death during a savage rescue on the New Jersey coast! “They were drinking water, they couldn’t catch their breath!”
A star is born.
ABC and World Surf League reality TV program The Ultimate Surfer wrapped up last week, or maybe the week before, with Zeke Lau and Tia Blanco holding trophies high above their heads, World Championship Tour wildcards stuffed into boardshort pockets.
It was an absolute flop, by standards, losing viewers episode after episode and ending its run last in its Monday night time slot.
But I thought that a star would rise from those ashes of Nielsen, it was almost certain, and that it would be Joe Turpel. “Sitting there behind a desk, dressed in his classic short-sleeved Hawaiian shirt, buttery tanned skin, brown hair styled around the headset microphone jumpsuit, blinking blue eyes, the pure and unique voice of the Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup, Turpel undeniably owned the screen. , and is now, officially, on a collision course with fame, fortune… “I wrote at the time that we would see it soar.
Well, Turpel is back to call surfing pro, but his castmate host Jesse Palmer has just been announced as the new host to perennial hit The Bachelor.
“For over 20 years, The Bachelor has brought dozens of unforgettable love stories to the world, including mine at one time,” Palmer told celebrity lifestyle magazine Us Weekly. “Falling in love is one of life’s greatest gifts, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to return to the show as host this season to offer the final Bachelor tips from an experience. firsthand and I am grateful to play a small part in his journey. “
He also took to Twitter saying, “Bachelor Nation – I couldn’t be more thrilled to be home with my family @bachelorabc! They say in the street that it is quite INCREDIBLE around here! »End the missive with a pink emoji.
Palmer replaces former host Chris Harrison who has had a lot of trouble, missing, for defending Bachelor of Arts winner Rachael Kirkconnell after photographs of her show up outside the plantation for an Old Man-themed fraternity party South at the age of nineteen.
ABC hasn’t announced that Joe Turpel will be this year’s Bachelor, but my fingers are still crossed.
