Who Does Ashley Choose? Huge "Bachelorette" Spoilers Leaked: Ashley's Final Pick Revealed

The new season of "The Bachelorette" premiered on Monday, but a full boot list and Ashley's final choice has already been leaked. Reality Steve has revealed everything that happens this season, including who goes home each week and who Ashley ultimately chooses. Obviously this is a huge spoiler which could ruin the entire season for some of you. For that reason I have written a separate, secret post that contains the full boot list. If you want to know everything that happens read my post here!

"Bachelor" Couple Brad and Emily Break Up

Brad Womack's second stint on "The Bachelor" has ended up with the same results as his first one - with no lasting relationship. An unnamed source tells Us Weekly that "It's completely over now". Reportedly, Emily initiated the break-up because she felt the long distance relationship was becoming too much of a struggle and she wasn't willing to move to Austin with her daughter. "Emily is happy in Charlotte and is not moving to Austin with Ricki" the insider tells Us. She also gave Brad back her engagement ring. This leaves the show with only one successful relationship left: Jason and Molly.

John Rich Wins "Celebrity Apprentice 4"

On tonight's season finale of "Celebrity Apprentice 4" country music star John Rich beat actress Marlee Matlin and was awarded $250,000 for his charity. The episode began with the culmination of the final task. John and Marlee had to stage their events that promoted 7Up Retro. Marlee's event with the Harlem Globetrotters went smoothly, but she failed to market the product enough. John advertised the product really well, but had a hiccup when he introduced the band Def Leppard too early and had to stall by getting onstage and performing himself. The execs felt that both stars did a great job, leaving the final decision to Donald. We then joined Trump live in New York where all this season's celebs were reunited to hear the results. After John and Marlee made their final pleas as to why they should win, Trump revealed that the winner of Celebrity Apprentice 2011 was John Rich!

What did you think of the finale? Did John deserve to win or was Marlee robbed? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Boston Rob Wins "Survivor Redemption Island"

On tonight's "Survivor: Redemption Island" season finale, the fourth time was the charm for Boston Rob Mariano, as he finally won the game and was awarded the $1 million prize. The finale began with the final Redemption Island duel, where Matt, Mike, Andrea and Grant faced off in a battle of endurance. Each castaway had to use one foot to balance a vase placed on one end of a seesaw. Grant was the first person to knock over his vase, followed shortly after by Matt and then Mike. All three were eliminated from the game for good and joined the jury. Having won the challenge, Andrea was awarded the opportunity to re-enter the game. When she returned to camp, she approached Natalie and Ashley with the idea of forming an all-women alliance and voting out either Rob or Phillip. Neither girl was very receptive to the idea. The next day, the final five competed in the penultimate Immunity challenge, which consisted of racing across balance beams collecting bags of numbered tiles and then using those tiles to complete a puzzle. Ashley and Rob were neck and neck during the challenge, but Ashley ultimately pulled out the win. At tribal council Rob played his hidden immunity idol, as this was the last time he could use it. It didn't make a difference though, as the tribe unanimously voted out Andrea. The next day, the final four competed in their last Immunity challenge, which consisted of racing through a huge maze collecting four bags of puzzle pieces and then using those pieces to solve a word puzzle. The challenge again came down to Ashley and Rob, but this time Rob took the win. Back at camp, Rob told Natalie that the time had come for her to turn on her friend and vote out Ashley. At tribal council, Natalie did just that and Ashley was voted out, becoming the final member of the jury. On Day 39, the final three made their way to the last tribal council, where the jury of nine grilled them before they made their decision. After the votes were cast, we joined Jeff live in New York for the final vote reading. Everyone except for Ralph voted for Rob to win and he became the sole Survivor. Rob was also awarded another $100,000 for being picked America's Favorite Player. At the end of the finale, Jeff revealed that this fall's 23rd season will be "Survivor: South Pacific" and will feature the return of Redemption Island and two former players!

John Rich and Marlee Matlin Revealed as the Final 2 on Tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" John Rich and Marlee Matlin were revealed to be the Final 2 after Trump fired Lil Jon and Meat Loaf. The episode began with Donald informing the final four that previous winners Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers and Bret Michaels would be interviewing all of them and helping him pick the final two. All three returning winners thought Lil Jon and Meat Loaf should be fired and Trump agreed. In the boardroom Donald bid adieu to the rapper and the crybaby, leaving John and Marlee as the last players standing. The next day, the final two were given their last task: produce a launch campaign for 7UP Retro. Both contestants had to design a new can, produce a 30-second commercial, create an editorial, and present the entire campaign at a gala. Six former players were brought in to help John and Marlee, three people for each finalist. John chose Lil Jon, Mark McGrath and Star Jones, while Marlee chose Meat Loaf, Richard Hatch and LaToya Jackson. Right away, Meat Loaf took the reins on Marlee's team and made a lot of the creative decisions. On the other team, John came up with an 80s icons commercial and enlisted the help of his friend Dee Snider from Twisted Sister. The episode ended with the star of Marlee's commercial cancelling right at the last minute. Next week, either John or Marlee will be crowned the new Celebrity Apprentice and be awarded $250,000 for their charity!

James Durbin Voted Off "American Idol 10"

On tonight's "American Idol" results show James Durbin became the tenth finalist voted off the show. Yesterday the Top 4 took to the stage and performed two songs each - an inspirational song and one from the Leiber-Stoller songbook. On tonight's results show, Ryan announced that Lauren, Haley and Scotty were all safe. That meant James received the least amount of votes and was eliminated from the show.

Then, one will go home and the Final 2 will be revealed!

Grant Mattos the Fifteenth Castaway Voted Off "Survivor 22: Redemption Island"

On tonight's "Survivor: Redemption Island" Grant Mattos became the fifteenth castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with the five remaining castaways traveling to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Matt, Mike, Ralph and Andrea. The challenge consisted of navigating a table maze and then solving a word puzzle. Ralph was the first person to complete the table maze, but blew his lead when he struggled with the puzzle. Mike, Matt and Andrea all finished the puzzle before Ralph, eliminating him from the game for good. Back at camp, Rob and Grant made a plan to get rid of Ashley, but wanted Natalie on board too. Even though Ashley was her close friend, Natalie agreed with the plan since Rob promised her he would take her to the end. The next day the castaways competed in the Reward/Immunity challenge which consisted of using fish hooks to retrieve three bags of puzzle pieces and then using those pieces to complete a fish skeleton puzzle, all with one hand tied behind their backs. Much to the chagrin of the other castaways, Ashley won the challenge and was awarded immunity and a three course meal delivered to camp. Ashley then chose Natalie to share the reward with. Since Ashley was now safe, Rob debated whether to vote out Grant or Natalie. At tribal council, the whole tribe decided to blindside Grant and voted him out.

Four castaways are now left in the game and four more are at Redemption Island. Tune in this Sunday for the big 3 hour season finale to see who takes home the $1 million prize!

"Sisters" Kisha and Jen Hoffman Win "The Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business"

On tonight's season finale of "Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business" sisters Kisha & Jen Hoffman beat Gary & Mallory and the Globetrotters to be crowned the winners of the race. The episode began with the final four teams flying from Zurich, Switzerland to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. When they landed teams traveled to Santa Teresa where they had to find a Route Info tile hidden amongst many other tiles. The Globetrotters missed the trolley to Santa Teresa and had to wait 30 minutes for the next one to depart. The teams were then faced with a Roadblock, which required one teammate to learn and perform a samba routine. Zev had trouble learning the routine, which allowed the Globetrotters to catch up. When the task was completed, teams made their way to a nearby salon where each team member had to undergo a 15 minute body waxing session. When the 15 minutes were up, teams were given their last Detour. The choice of tasks was between selling bikinis to strangers on the beach until they earned $60 or making 100 Brazilian cocktails. Gary & Mallory were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to the Mediterranean coast. Zev and Justin arrived last and were eliminated from the race. The episode then continued with the final three teams flying to the final destination city of Miami, Florida. When the teams landed they made their way to Rickenbacker Marina where a Roadblock awaited them. One team member had to move a boat to a drydock using a heavy load forklift. Gary & Mallory got a bad taxi driver when they left the airport, causing them to fall way behind. When the task was completed, teams traveled to Jules Undersea Lodge where they were surprised to find another Roadblock. The other teammate had to get in a personal submarine and search amongst dozens of treasure chests for one that contained their next clue. Once they found it, they made their way to Horseshoe Island where they found their next clue underneath the tallest tree. Said clue instructed them to take a speedboat to a local mobile home park where their final task awaited. Teams had to set up a trailer so that it exactly matched one that appeared in a brochure they were given. When the task was completed teams were instructed to take a taxi to the Seven Mile Bridge where they rode tricycles all the way across the bridge to the Finish Line. Kisha & Jen were the first team to cross the Finish Line and won the $1 million prize. The Globetrotters arrived only minutes later and were followed in third place by Gary & Mallory.

Nene Quits, LaToya Jackson and Star Jones Both Fired on Tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice"

On tonight's 3 hour "Celebrity Apprentice 4" Star Jones and LaToya Jackson were both fired by Donald Trump, while Nene Leakes quit the show. The episode began with Trump mixing up the teams by having Nene join Backbone and sending Meat Loaf to ASAP. This made Nene irate, as she felt Trump was accommodating Star Jones. Donald then told the teams that their next task was to produce and sell tickets to a live comedy show. Meat Loaf was picked as project manager for ASAP, while LaToya Jackson stepped up on Backbone. Immediately, Nene bailed on the task and later called Trump to inform him she was quitting the show. On Backbone, John Rich called Jimmy Fallon to ask if he would perform at the show and Jimmy agreed. Over on ASAP, Star Jones contacted Tracey Morgan and asked if he would record a video they could show at the event and Tracey also said yes. Both teams also raised money by selling tickets to their shows. After staging their events, the teams met up in the boardroom to find out who won. After some sobbing by Meat Loaf and some creepy glares by Jim Cramer, Trump announced that ASAP beat Backbone by $20,000. He then awarded all $184,000 to Meat Loaf's charity. On Backbone, Trump had no choice but to fire project manager LaToya, making her the first person in "Apprentice" history to be fired twice. The next day, the teams met up again and were told their next task was to create a 60 second commercial for OnStar. John Rich was picked as PM for Backbone, while Marlee Matlin was chosen on ASAP. Marlee handed off most of the creative decisions to Meat Loaf and gave Star the responsibility of brand integration. Over on Backbone, the two Johns worked hard on their ad, with John Rich writing the script and Lil Jon directing the commercial. After the OnStar executives watched both videos, they met with Trump and picked a winner. In the boardroom, Donald revealed that the execs liked both ads but thought Backbone's was better. He then awarded John $40,000 for his charity. On ASAP, Trump placed the blame on Star for not incorporating the brand into the commercial enough and fired her from the competition.

The episode began with the castaways both at camp and on Redemption Island receiving a Sprint mobile phone with video messages from their loved ones. After they watched the videos, the castaways met up at the Redemption Island arena where Matt, Mike, Ralph and Steve took part in a tile-breaking duel. Mike was the first person to break all four of his tiles and was awarded with the opportunity to spend time with his mom. Steve came in last at the challenge and was eliminated from the game for good. After Steve was booted, Mike was given three choices: he could have the visit with his mom, he could give Ralph and Matt visits with their loved ones or he could give the Ometepe six visits with their loved ones. Surprisingly, Mike chose to let the Ometepe six get to have the time with their family members, in the hopes of gaining goodwill should he re-enter the game. After the tribe spent the day with their loved ones, they competed in the Immunity challenge which consisted of assembling a staircase using puzzle pieces. An exhausted Rob narrowly edged out Grant to win his second individual immunity in a row. At camp, the tribe debated whether to vote out Andrea or Phillip. At tribal council the tribe stuck with the original plan and blindsided Andrea. Next week she'll duel Matt, Mike & Ralph for the right to stay in the game.

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" dating goths Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala became the seventh team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the teams continuing to race in Zermatt, Switzerland. They were instructed to make their way to a helicopter port where they would sign up for flights departing every five minutes to the top of the Matterhorn. When they landed the teams faced a Detour. The choice of tasks was between using avalanche beacons to locate and dig up a dummy buried in the snow or using a pulley device to lower one teammate into a crevasse in a glacier and then lifting that teammate and another person back to the surface. When the task was completed, teams took a train to Le Petit Cervin where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to make a Travelocity gnome out of Swiss chocolate. After the gnome was put in the snow for thirty minutes to harden, teams were given a real gnome and made their way to the Pit Stop. The Globetrotters were the first team to arrive at the Pit Stop, earning them a trip for two to the Cook Islands. Kent and Vyxsin arrived at the Pit Stop third, but were given a 30 minute penalty for taking a taxi when the clue explicitly said to travel on foot. That allowed all the other teams to check in and eliminated them from the race.

Hope Dworaczyk Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice", LaToya Jackson Comes Back

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" Playboy Playmate Hope Dworaczyk was fired by Donald Trump and LaToya Jackson re-entered the competition. The episode began with the teams learning that their next task was to stage a live hair show promoting Farouk beauty products. Lil Jon was picked as project manager for the men, while Nene Leakes reluctantly stepped up on the women's team. Nene also verbally attacked Star Jones for pressuring her to become project manager and acting like a bully. When the task started, the women had a hard time working together and focusing on the task after Nene's outburst. The men, on the other hand, got to work right away and even recruited former contestant Niki Taylor to help them. During the task, LaToya Jackson stopped by Trump's office to ask for the chance to re-enter the competition. Donald heard her out and said he would think about it and get back to her in 24 hours. After rehearsing their shows, the teams presented them to Farouk and a packed audience. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that Farouk liked both team's shows, but preferred the men's more. He then awarded Lil Jon $40,000 for his charity. Before the men left, LaToya entered the boardroom and Trump announced that she was back in the game and joining the men's team. On the women's side Nene, Star and Marlee all picked Hope as the weakest player and Trump agreed, booting her from the show.
