My Antonio: Recap for September 20th

I must say that I am glad that My Antonio did not air last week because I definitely needed an extra week to prepare for Sunday's episode. This episode began where the last one left off, after the elimination, where Christi had become upset over Antonio's exit following his confrontation with Jennifer. On Sunday, Christi was still upset, but more so with Miranda for telling her to compose herself at the elimination dinner. Christi was also quite noticeably drunk, as most of the women pointed out to her, with Brooke being the only one who could actually get her to calm down.

The next day Antonio arrived at the house with gifts for all the women. And shockingly enough these gifts had nothing to do with their hands and feet, so hopefully this means he has moved beyond that obsession. Antonio's visit also presented the first challenge of the episode, "Tony Says," which as Brooke explained is exactly like "Simon Says." Thanks Brooke, I never would have been able to figure that out without you! Unfortunately Brooke's perceptiveness did not pay off in this particular challenge because she lost to Tully, who won a few minutes of cuddle time with Antonio in a hammock right outside the house. Some girls get a boat, others a helicopter ride, Tully gets to walk ten feet to lay in an over-sized basketball net suspended between two trees. Who says romance fades over time? Perhaps the setting made it seem more romantic because Tully seemed perfectly content to the women who were spying on her from inside the house. This included Autumn, who later showed her apparent immaturity when she informed Tully that the other women had been spying on her date. I guess Autumn forgot that Tully was the one who chartered a jet ski in order to interrupt Antonio's date out in the middle of the ocean.

The next day presented the next challenge for the women, who were instructed to sculpt a nude model, specifically Antonio, who in all of his vanity seemed to be a more than willing participant. Supposedly the purpose of this challenge was to see how artistic the women were. If this is true, I guess the purpose of "Tony Says," was to see how well they took orders. Unlike "Tony Says," however, the clay sculpting challenge resulted in a tie between Christi and Autumn who were informed that they had to share a date with Antonio.

Later that night, Antonio hosted a disco party, where the women became somewhat combative in their attempts to gain his attention. Every time Antonio began dancing with one woman, another woman would immediately start trying to cut in. This went on for quite a while and eventually became almost too embarrassing to watch. At one point Tania overheard Christi talking to Antonio about how much she loved Autumn, prompting her to expose Christi for lying. This resulted in an argument that continued even after the party was over.

The next day Antonio, rather bravely, took Christi and Autumn out on a boat for their date. And once again Christi became upset, this time because Autumn interrupted her kiss with Antonio. I will say this for Antonio, at least he had the presence of mind to make Autumn go to the other side of the boat before trying to kiss Christi. And they say that chivalry is dead. It is ironic though that Autumn interrupted Christi's kiss considering that she felt the need to tell Tully that the other women had spied on her date from afar.

Later on at the elimination dinner, Antonio began asking the women questions. One of the things he wanted to know was where Miranda had been. Miranda had been forced to miss out on several of the activities throughout this episode because she became ill following a spider bite. This revelation sent Antonio's mother into a fit of laughter, prompting the other women to laugh as well. Apparently she found it silly that someone could actually become sick from an insect bite. I guess mama Sabato is not aware of the fact that, depending on the species, spider bites can in fact be quite dangerous, deadly even. And if Miranda had an allergic reaction to this bite, as she claimed to, there could have been serious consequences. Antonio's mom then posed the question about what would happen if she were stung by a bee, a decidedly more dangerous insect. Um, people who are allergic to bees sometimes die if they do not receive medical treatment quickly enough, mama Sabato. To be honest I am having difficulty understanding why Antonio's mother remains a factor on this show, other than the fact that she continues to use Christi to gain insight into Tully. Fortunately for Miranda, mama Sabato's elimination night duties only consisted of entertaining the crowd with her witty repartee because she was allowed to stay another week while Jessica was sent home.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
