A better show of talent would’ve been dressing as a literal red flag.


THE BACHELORETTE - Hannah Brown caught the eye of Colton Underwood early on during the 23rd season of "The Bachelor," showing him, and all of America, what Alabama Hannah is made of - a fun country girl who is unapologetically herself. After being sent home unexpectedly, Hannah took the time to reflect on her breakup, gaining a powerful understanding of her desire to be deeply and fiercely loved. Now, with a newfound sense of self and a little southern charm, she is more ready than ever to find her true love on the milestone 15th season of "The Bachelorette." (Ed Herrera) LUKE P.

@addisonclarkk, joking about “The Bachelorette” contestant’s cringe-worthy confession during the season’s second episode. During a “Mr. Right” competition where the men had to showcase their talents, Luke P. instead took the stage and told “Bachelorette” Hannah Brown that he was “starting to fall in love.” Though the tactic worked on Brown — who crowned him winner of the competition — Twitter fans found his early admission to be a red flag.

The way Celine Dion feels about getting rid of her shoes is exactly how I feel about sharing food.

@swiftmylifeline, tweeting about the singer’s Monday appearance on James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.” Dion began singing almost immediately after getting in the car, including a stripped-down rendition of “Baby Shark.” After saying she might own 10,000 pairs of shoes, she handed out a few pairs to people on the Las Vegas Strip. Then she and Corden reenacted a scene from “Titanic” as they sang “My Heart Will Go On” in the Bellagio fountain.

How is it that “Sesame Street” is consistently more progressive and adaptable than most people and um, states?

@DesignerDaddy, praising the long-running educational program for introducing new Muppet Karli, who is in foster care and lives with her “for-now” parents. Karli and her foster parents are introduced in a series of three online videos, which explain to young viewers the role of foster parents and why someone like Karli might live with them. Karli is the latest addition to an expanded cast of “Sesame” Muppets tackling various issues: Julia, a Muppet with autism, was introduced in 2017, and Lily, a homeless Muppet, debuted in December.

Alabama needs to take a really long vacation. And then rescind all these recent horrid decisions.

@noitskatelyn, blasting Alabama Public Television over its refusal to air a recent episode of the children’s cartoon “Arthur” that shows a same-sex wedding. In a statement provided to NBC News, APT’s director of programming, Mike McKenzie, said “The vast majority of parents will not have heard about the content. ... Because of this, we felt it would be a violation of trust to broadcast the episode.” The move has drawn fresh criticism of Alabama, which was already under fire for enacting a law this month that bans virtually all abortions in the state.
