Top Five Friday #14
Happy Friday everyone!
Even though I'm running a half marathon this weekend (by the way, thank you all for sending me encouragement and wishing me luck! I really appreciate it!!), I'm already looking forward to the rest of the races I have planned for the rest of the summer. Summer is my favorite time to run and race, so I always load up my calendar in June and July! As part of the Friday Five linkup, today I'll share what five races I have on my radar, as well as other favorites of the week!
MasterchefThis was an interesting week with the first team challenge, and a very one-sided competition! There are a lot of chefs that I think are annoying and wouldn't mind leaving soon (cough cough KATRINA) and a few that are standing out to me (Derrick!! Amanda! Hetal!) Also, did anyone else think that almost all of those cinnamon rolls sounded disgusting? I wouldn't like prunes or pistachios in my rolls! What's wrong with a basic recipe...keep it simple people!
America's Got TalentThere are SO many acts that I'm already in love with this season! From the first episode I really like Piff the Magic Dragon (so funny, and good magic!) and Siro-A (their video-game act blew my mind and I can't wait to see what they do next!). From episode two I liked DM Nation (SO crisp and clean, and some awesome moves thrown in there), the regurgitator (that was the most interesting and crazy- but disgusting- act ever. Plus, he had the most adorable stage presence!) and Freckled Sky (just incredible.)
So You Think You Can DanceI'm still not sure how I feel about the twist this season (street vs. stage) and I'm interested to see how it'll play out in the live shows. What I AM sure about is that I love Jason Derulo as a judge. He's not only one of my favorite singers at the moment, but also seems like the sweetest guy ever!
The BacheloretteAnother crazy episode. The show seems to be focusing less and less on the actual "relationships" forming and more on drama (the whole Clint/JJ thing was really stupid and unnecessary, and I dislike both of them!) On the other hand, how sweet are both Ben Z and Ben H? Who else agrees with Tony that the dates should just be to a zoo instead of sumo wrestling?!
unREALDid anyone else watch the premier? I loved it! I don't know if that's why I think this season of the Bachelorette is so irritating, but I find this show really funny and (probably) spot-on to what happens behind the scenes. It almost seems like a documentary, and I can't wait to see what happens later in the season!
Linking up with Mar, Cynthia and Court
as well as Heather and Clare!
