“Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair”
Frank and the women attended couples’ therapy this week so Frank could get a better idea of with who he had the best connection. The therapist was fairly impressed with the connection between Frank and most of the women, especially Kerry, but she was a little worried that things weren’t where they needed to be between Frank and Dana and Frank and Melody. Dana and Felicia received dates this week, although Dana’s was a little less romantic than Frank had probably hoped. The two got in a huge argument in public. When it came time to make a final decision, Frank decided to send Melody home because she was just too nice and too perfect for him.

“The Amazing Race”
Thanks to Michael and Louie, Joe and Heidi were eliminated from “The Amazing Race” this week. The pair were in the front of the pack when leaving their last pit stop but were hit with a U-turn after the first challenge was completed. This sent them back to complete the other challenge choice, and no matter how hard the pair tried, they just could not get the Morse code answer correct. Michael and Louie said they chose to U-turn Joe and Heidi because Joe was so arrogant when they were on the bus earlier.

Carol Leifer was the first season three celebrity to hear “You’re fired!” from the Donald. She was eliminated on the “Celebrity Apprentice” season premiere Sunday. She went down swinging, which was understandable because she was sort of only eliminated because they didn’t know who else to send home. Carol did a great job in the challenge, but she didn’t bring in as much money as the other female celebrities, which put her in the hot seat from the beginning. Unlike you may think, Carol was not the first project manager, and for one of the first times ever, the women put no blame on Cyndi, the PM, instead praising her wonderful job.

“Inside ‘The Bachelor’: The Stories Behind the Rose”
We all love a good secret, and this week “20/20” was dishing the dirt on one of our favorite reality shows, “The Bachelor.” Everything from secrets of the house/set to secrets from our favorite people on the show were told courtesy of one of the show’s producers, but the show’s pride and joy was probably the reunion of Brad Womack and DeAnna Pappas. The pair had one of the rockiest goodbyes in “Bachelor” history, but things were really civil during their reunion. There was no yelling or screaming, just talk about understanding one another and acceptance of the choice Brad made.

“The Biggest Loser”
“The Biggest Loser” said a tearful goodbye to Sherry this week. She had begged to stay on the ranch, but the team just didn’t think she was the right person to keep around. While on the ranch, she said she needed to stay, but she ended up proving that statement was untrue by getting herself down to around 130 pounds after leaving the ranch. The main challenge of the week was a cooking challenge that asked the teams to cook a delicious and healthy three-course meal for under 1200 calories. The black team won the challenge with a lower calorie dessert and were more than happy to accept the five-pound advantage for the weigh in.

The season nine “American Idol” contestants got their first taste of the big stage this week when the Top 12 finalists performed live. This was the first finals week for the season, and the first week that only one contestant would be leaving. Unfortunately, that contestant was Lacey Brown. Two nights before, Lacey performed “Ruby Tuesday” by The Rolling Stones. The judges thought the vocals were OK but the arrangement was odd and very sleepy. They felt she could have done a lot better.

“America’s Next Top Model”
Two models were sent home on this week’s episode of “America’s Next Top Model.” The first to go was Gabrielle. Her eliminated came after a nude photo shoot. Gabrielle thought she had done OK, but the judges were silent when her photo hit the screen during the judges’ deliberation, and Tyra said it was not a good thing that there was no debate over her photos. She added that they were overall unimpressive. Naduah was the second model to go home, and she did not take it well at all. She thought she had the beauty photo shoot in the bag, even telling some of the other contestants that she wasn’t worried about elimination and knew she had done an impressive job. Unfortunately for her, the judges did not agree. They loved her edgy and different look in person but were upset that she was always trying to be so classic in photos because it killed what made her special.

Naduah Rugley eliminated on episode two, part two
