Nick Viall Offers to Be the Bachelor Again If Colton Underwood Quits They Brought Stand-Ins

Nick Viall Offers to Be the Bachelor Again If Colton Underwood Quits They Brought Stand-Ins

Have no fear, Bachelor Nation: Nick Viall is ready to save the day if Colton Underwood quits the show.

Ahead of Monday’s new — and highly anticipated — episode, Nick posted a photo to Instagram alongside the current bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise star Tanner Tolbert.

“Just in case Colton quits .. they brought stand Ins #thebachelor” Nick, 38, captioned the shot of the men smiling together outside, as Colton held a giant bouquet of roses in his hand.

In preparation for his possible stand-in, Nick also had a bouquet of red roses.

Tanner, 31, also joined in and shared a photo of him and Underwood posing near a backyard fence. In the silly shot, Underwood bent down and held Tolbert’s foot in his hand in preparation to throw him over the black bars.

“Fence Jumping 101,” he captioned the shot.

Their posts refer to the speculation that Colton, 27, will quit The Bachelor after the season 23 preview first showed the star threatening to leave the show and fleeing the property by hopping a fence.

A dramatic promo with similar footage that aired after last week’s episode also made fans wonder if Colton will soon call it quits on the reality show.

While many were shocked at the possibility of the star of the show walking away, host Chris Harrison revealed to Entertainment Tonight that it actually happens more than viewers think.

“I mean, it happens a lot. It happens more than you think,” he told the outlet. “There’s varying degrees of it, there’s varying degrees of getting fed up in how you express your anger, in how you express your emotions. He happens to be the most athletic SOB we’ve ever had, so he was able to express it like an Olympian , but they all get there.”

“Colton, he was done,” Harrison, 47, added. “He was done with this moment and ready to get away, and he took this fence.”

Nick also echoed those sentiments to the outlet and revealed that “there were certainly moments where I wanted to . It’s a stressful situation,” he said.

“The producers can select 30 amazing women or 30 amazing men, and they might not be your person. …That’s the stresses of being the lead, the pressures of

Bobsled Narrowly Misses Seriously Injuring a Worker Mid-Race Man Leaps Off Track Just in Time

Bobsled Narrowly Misses Seriously Injuring a Worker Mid-Race Man Leaps Off Track Just in Time

A track worker is incredibly lucky to have escaped injury after he nearly got run over by a bobsled mid-race this weekend.

The terrifying incident, which was captured on video by CBC Sports, occurred on Saturday during a World Cup bobsleigh event in Lake Placid, New York. What could’ve been a serious or fatal injury was prevented by the worker’s quick reaction in mere seconds.

During Monaco’s four-man bobsleigh race, led by Olympic athlete Rudy Rinaldi, the sled flew around the curves of the track before the speed and momentum caused it to flip onto its side.

As the bobsled continued to fly down the track sideways while the team did their best to protect themselves, it eventually zipped around a corner and flipped upright, where it charged down the rest of the icy path as normal.

That is until things once again took a turn for the worst as the bobsled came barrelling towards a worker standing on the track. The man had entered the track to help the athletes, who he likely believed were still traveling sideways, and was nearly run over.

In CBC Sports’ video, a bystander can be heard yelling, “Get out of the way! Get out of the track!” to the man, before he leaped into the air and threw himself over the track’s railing and out of harm’s way.

The commentators were also taken aback at the exciting race and what could’ve been a fatal collision.

“He thought they were upside down,” one announcer said. “Wow, that was close!”

The bobsled continued on its way and finished the race, with Monaco tying for last place with Switzerland, according to results from the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF).

Canada, meanwhile, finished in first place and was won by pilot Justin Kripps with brakemen Ryan Sommer, Cam Stones, and Benjamin Coakwell. Latvia placed second, while Russia finished for third.

Kate Beckinsale Slams Troll for Questioning Her Dating Choices After Stepping Out with Pete Davidson

Kate Beckinsale Slams Troll for Questioning Her Dating Choices After Stepping Out with Pete Davidson

Another day, another Internet troll that Kate Beckinsale has hilariously shut down.

Weeks after the British actress stepped out with Pete Davidson — first, at a Golden Globes afterparty and later, at his stand up comedy show — Beckinsale, 45, slammed another Instagram user who criticized her for her rumored romance with Davidson.

On Saturday, Beckinsale shared a close-up selfie to Instagram with only a portion of her face showing.

She captioned the shot with, “Here’s what I got from five years of biology class : ‘mollusc’ is Latin for ‘soft flesh’ and how to identify and label a urethra. Neither has kicked in yet as useful as of today”

Her post prompted a follower to comment on the photo with their own disapproving thoughts about Beckinsale’s dating life.

“Disappointed in your dating choices,” the user wrote, as captured by Instagram account Comments by Celebs, in reference to Davidson, 25.

Beckinsale wittily wrote back to the fan, “fairly let down by your wonky beard but thought possibly rude to say.”

The exchange also led to some of Beckinsale’s followers to instantly come to her defense.

“Everyone is entitled to make their own dating choices, @katebeckinsale included,” wrote one fan.

“Your relationships are none of our business, but I do hope you find happiness because nothing is more important,” added someone else.

This isn’t the first time Beckinsale has joked with Instagram commenters who have asked about the Saturday Night Live comedian.

After Beckinsale was spotted hitting it off with the comedian at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, one commenter wrote on a throwback photos of Beckinsale’s mother, actress Judy Loe, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.”

Virginia Woman Accused of Living with Mothers Decomposing Body for Nearly 2 Months

Virginia Woman Accused of Living with Mothers Decomposing Body for Nearly 2 Months

A Virginia woman has been charged with concealment of a body after allegedly living with her mother’s body for 44 days, covering it with more than 50 blankets and masking the smell with 60 air fresheners, according to multiple reports.

Jo-Whitney Outland, 55, was arrested after police were called to her Bristol home by a concerned relative on Feb. 11, local station WJHL, the Washington Post and the Bristol Herald Courier report.

The relative told police they had become concerned for Outland’s mother, 78-year-old Rosemary Outland, after not being able to reach her. When they went to visit her at home, the relative noticed nobody was home and decided to jump through a window, the Post reports.

Police did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

While inside, the relative found what they believed to be a decomposing body. Alarmed, they called the police, who investigated the scene and confirmed the relative’s suspicions, according to the Post.

The body, which was later identified as Rosemary, was found sitting in a chair covered in blankets and air fresheners.

“I pulled back the blankets, and I see the body of an elderly female under these blankets,” Sgt. Steve Crawford told the Courier. “There were all of these air fresheners around.”

Crawford left the residence and returned with a search warrant and protective suit, according to the paper.

“I went back in, took off the blankets,” Crawford said, the Courier reports. “There were 54 blankets and articles of clothing. And there were air fresheners on top of it and around it. I counted 66 different air fresheners.”

A letter written by Outland found at the home stating that Rosemary had died on Dec. 29 and that she attempted to revive her using CPR, Crawford said. When that failed, she covered her mother’s body with blankets, refused to let relatives in and attempted to mask the smell with air fresheners, the Post reports.
