My Antonio: Recap for September 27th

Sunday's My Antonio began after Jessica was sent home. Antonio then passed out scripts to the remaining women as part of their next challenge. This challenge involved each of the women doing soap opera style scenes with Antonio, who told them that he wanted to give them an idea of what he does for a living. I guess this also served as a gentle reminder to Antonio about why he likely decided to do this reality show in the first place. It also presented an excellent opportunity for any woman who might have only been there in order to become famous. Of course with all of the hoops Antonio has made them jump through since this show began, I think they have all earned at least one audition. However, judging from their performances I do not think any of them will be winning an Emmy any time soon.


Once all the soap scenes were filmed, they were presented on a big screen and subjected to an audience critique. The audience then had to decide who performed the best, and that woman won a date with Antonio. In the end there was a tie between Miranda and Tania, but unlike Christi and Autumn, these women did not have to share a date with Antonio.


After the winners were announced everyone went back to the women's suite where Tully was already in tears. And of course Antonio felt compelled to comfort her. Tully told him that it was getting to difficult to see him with other women and that she did not feel like any of them were right for him. She eventually calmed down once she received the attention she so desperately desired. Unfortunately for her, the other women in the house, who had overheard her conversation were not so calm, and their frustration would later be revealed at the elimination dinner.


The next day Miranda got her first date with Antonio, where they traveled by helicopter to reach their initial destination atop a mountain. Their actual destination could only be reached by zip-line, where they would find a picnic inside a makeshift shelter overlooking a waterfall. How romantic, and all she had to do was attach herself to a rope with a flimsy piece of metal and slide across it. The zip-line proved to be quite challenging for Miranda who is apparently afraid of heights. Antonio tried helping her overcome this phobia by going first, thereby letting Miranda focus on her prize. At first it seemed like Miranda was not going to go down the zip-line at all, regardless of who was waiting for her on the other side, but eventually she took a deep breath and just went for it. And I guess for Miranda it turned out to be worth it because she and Antonio actually seemed to connect on their date, go figure.


The next day it was Tania's turn to have a date with Antonio. For this date Antonio decided it would be a good idea to test Tania's strength by taking her for a bumpy ride around the hillside before having a picnic for two. I guess the test of her strength came from her ability to keep her food down after she went on this ride. I have to say they really tested my ability to keep my food down once their date began. It started off normal enough, but then Tania started interrogating Antonio about why he didn't kiss her on their first date. She then proceeded to hang all over him, stealing the kisses she had previously been denied. This was an embarrassing scene to say the least. Tania came across as being completely desperate, while Antonio just seemed, well, a little scared.


Later on, at the elimination dinner, Antonio asked each of the women who they thought should be sent home. Most of them answered Tully, but it is fairly clear at this point that Antonio is not going to send Tully home just yet. A few of the women thought Autumn, rather than Tully, should be sent home, based on her age. Taking all of these responses into consideration one would think that Tully and Autumn would be the ones not receiving a lei at this dinner, but in the end it was Christi and Autumn pleading their cases to Antonio. Ultimately Antonio sided with the other women and sent Autumn home, but judging from Christi's near meltdown after this elimination I think Antonio should reconsider that decision.

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.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
