The next Wonder Woman has been cast and the woman who will be taking on the iconic superheroine next will be Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot. Best known for her role as Gisele Harabo in The Fast and the Furious film franchise, Gadot will suit up as Wonder Woman in the sequel to 2013’s Superman remake, Man of Steel.
There is no doubt that Gal Gadot is gorgeous. After all, she won the 2004 Miss Israel competition and competed in the Miss Universe pageant. She’s also tough. At 20 years old, Gadot joined the Israeli Army and served in the Israel Defense Forces as a fitness trainer. But is she really the right woman to play Wonder Woman?
Other than her appearances in three of the Fast & Furious movies as Gisele, Gal Gadot does not really have a long history of experience as an actress. She popped up in 2010’s Date Night and Knight and Day, but we wouldn’t exactly call her a major leading lady.
If there is ever to be a standalone Wonder Woman film made in the future, we’re not sure Gadot has the chops to support a feature film as the lead protagonist. We’d hate to see her play Wonder Woman in the Batman versus Superman Man of Steel sequel and then have the role recast again for a hopeful future movie about the Amazon with the gold lasso of truth.
For now, we’ll give Gadot the benefit of the doubt and hope that she won’t just be featured as a whole lot of eye candy with little substance in the Man of Steel sequel. For us though, there just won’t ever be a Wonder Woman as awesome as Lynda Carter, no matter who steps into the red, white, and blue.
Going into The X Factor results show on Thursday, we are pretty sure which acts are going to end up in the bottom this week based on last night’s performances. Predicting exactly who got voted off The X Factor 2013 from the Top 6 is a bit more difficult. We have an idea about which acts would probably be the ones who went home on The X Factor season 3 in this round, but the viewers are a fickle lot and you never know until the last vote is counted.
Based on her track record so far and her performances last night, we are relatively certain that Ellona Santiago will not be one of the two who got eliminated on The X Factor 2013 this week. Figuring out what will happen from there more of a roll of the dice. All of the rest of the acts have solid fan bases but none of them seem to really stand out over the others all that much.
Forget about who went home on Survivor 2013 in week 12, it’s all about the drama of what happened at the Tribal Council! Okay, okay, we know it is important who was eliminated on Survivor Blood vs Water this week and we’ll tell you in just a moment. But really, Tribal Council was a whole bunch of crazy this evening and the real entertainment was all about finding out who got voted off Survivor 27 tonight!
At the Redemption Island challenge this week, we had Tina, Caleb and Laura M. battling it out to determine who went home on Survivor 2013 next. This was one of those challenges we would hate to have to do and would no doubt royally screw up. Caleb was the odd man out coming into the challenge considering that Laura M. actually helped Tina to beat Vytas last week. It wasn’t very nice, but it worked.
We are quickly headed toward the Survivor Blood vs Water finale and tonight we’ll be down to the final eight after the next castaway gets the boot. We’re looking forward to seeing who went home on Survivor 2013 in week 12, but we’re really excited about all the drama we hear is in store for us tonight. According to Survivor spoilers for this week, Tribal Council is going to be crazy fun when we find out who got voted off Survivor 27 in this round!
As usual, we scoured our sources for clues about what will happen on tonight’s show. CBS has been keeping the Survivor Blood vs Water spoilers locked up tight this year. We did find some rather shaky sources that have been accurate now and then throughout the season and several that agreed on the week 12 elimination and Tribal Vote. So we’re going to make our predictions about the Survivor results tonight based on those and the current state of the game.
Taylor Lee Collins, son of Survivor Blood vs Water castaway Tina Wesson and brother of contestant Katie Collins, died in a car accident in Chattanooga, TN on Tuesday. The 25-year-old was a passenger in a car that reportedly went off the road and slammed into the wall of a garage. According to police reports, Taylor was ejected from the car and died at a local hospital from his injuries.
According to the Chattanooga Police Department, the unidentified driver of the vehicle was also taken to the hospital, but only suffered minor injuries. Taylor Lee Collins was reportedly riding in the front passenger seat of the vehicle and may not have been wearing a seat belt. He was thrown from the car and despite efforts to save him by rescue personnel, succumbed to his injuries.
We were a bit sad about who was voted off The Voice 2013 last week because we were rather fond of quirky Caroline Pennell. However, we agreed that neither Caroline or Ray Boudreaux were at the same level as some of the other singers still left in the competition. We were far more worried about The Voice results this week with only six contestants left. One of our favorites could have easily fallen out of favor and been the one who went home on The Voice season 5 tonight!
Although we agree that her performance of “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin last night was absolutely fabulous, 16-year-old Jacquie Lee isn’t one of our top favorites left on The Voice 2013. Despite that, we were glad she really had nothing to worry about tonight after she killed her performances on Monday night. We were pretty sure that Cole Vosbury, who is probably our third favorite singer, wouldn’t be in any danger either from what we saw out there on social media and fan polls. Our main concern was whether our top two favorites, Tessanne Chin or Will Champlin, might somehow fall into the bottom two in The Voice results tonight.
We are still a bit perturbed by who went home on The Voice 2013 last week, and we’re really hoping we don’t lose any more of our favorites tonight. We know Caroline Pennell didn’t stand any chance of winning, but we liked her quirky style and hated seeing her go home in particular. This week, we’re just hoping we aren’t feeling sad again when The Voice results are announced and we find out who got voted off The Voice season 5 tonight!
After her stellar performance of “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin last night, we feel pretty confident that pretty 16-year-old Jacquie Lee will be safe tonight with no problem. Will Champlin, one of our personal favorites, also gave a great showing last night with “A Change Is Gonna Come” by Sam Cook. We’re hoping that also put him in the safe zone for this week. Tessanne Chin, who is our current favorite to win, astounded us by managing to actually pull off Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song,” so we’re feeling she’s a shoo in for next week as well.
