Does Fitness Model Sommer Ray Have a New Boyfriend?

Published

on

When you’re in the public eye, it’s inevitable that paparazzi or fans will snag a picture of you when you’re least expecting it. Fitness model and YouTuber Sommer Ray is known for her large social media following, and in February she was caught engaging in some PDA with rapper Machine Gun Kelly (real name Richard Colson Baker). 

Who is Sommer Ray?

Before accruing an Instagram following of more than 24 million, Sommer got her internet fame started on the now-defunct app Vine. The 23-year-old Colorado native is known for her fitness / workout videos. As for how she makes her money, Sommer features sponsored Instagram posts on her page, and she also has a line of merchandise that is available for sale. 

Sommer’s mom, Shannon Ray, is also an Instagram influencer, and she has more than 750,000 followers.

She has three siblings as well: Savana, Skylyn, and Bronson.

In 2017, Sommer became one of the members of the Clout Gang, a collective of influencers that was created by Ricky Banks in response to Jake Paul’s Team 10. 

Alissa Violet and RiceGum were just two of the other well-known members of Clout Gang. It’s unclear whether or not the collective still exists, since there are no social media accounts for it.

Who is Sommer Ray’s boyfriend?

YouTuber Brandon Awadis posted a new video to his channel in September titled “Dating Sommer Ray for 24 Hours!!” The video showed Brandon and the fitness model playing games, doing yoga, and even meeting the influencer’s mom. So, are the two really a couple? In an old video, Brandon revealed that Sommer is his celeb crush.  

Though the pair definitely seem like a cute couple, it’s safe to say they are just friends. 

Prior to going on a “date” with Brandon, Sommer was spotted with rapper MGK.

In February of 2020, TMZ posted a slew of grainy photos and videos that showed the fitness model holding hands with and kissing Machine Gun Kelly. The two were spotted at a concert together, and they were also seen engaging in some PDA at a mall.   

Machine Gun Kelly also fueled the romance rumors when he posted photos from a group trip to the Bahamas. In one snapshot, the two are sitting next to each other in a golf cart. In another, they are hanging out with another friend on the beach. 

Interestingly, they have actually known each other for some time now. They first met in 2017, when they both appeared on MTV’s Wild ‘N Out. One Twitter user posted a side-by-side photo of MGK and Sommer from the taping of the episode they appeared on together, and a photo of them kissing from the paparazzi.

“Started from this to this,” the Twitter user captioned the photo.

Machine Gun Kelly then confirmed the romance by retweeting the side-by-side and writing, “Hard. Even tho 2nd pic is complete invasion of privacy. But hard.”

But, it seems the two had a short-lived fling. In a recent TikTok video by fellow influencer Tayler Holder, the social media star seemed to confirm that he is dating Sommer.

“Boo’ed up,” he captioned a TikTok video of the duo sending each other snaps. It appears they started officially dating on May 19, 2020. Tayler’s most recent videos also feature his new girlfriend. 

As for Sommer’s past romantic history, she and her fellow Clout Gang member RiceGum dated. But, they seemed to split in 2018. She also reportedly dated actor Max Ehrich in 2017.   

Fellow Sway House member Bryce Hall only further confirmed the pair were an item. During a TikTok livestream, Bryce answered a question about Sommer and Tayler’s relationship, telling viewers, “It looks like they are. They’re definitely feeling all up on each other’s faces and stuff.”

He continued, saying they’re “definitely, maybe, kissing. I will say they probably have kissed,” but you “shouldn’t take [his] word for it.”

That being said, Bryce also tweeted that he supported a potential relationship between Tayler and Kelianne Stankus, another TikToker Tayler has been rumored to be seeing.

Commander ’85 Review | Screen Rant

Published

on

By

Commander ’85 is a lackluster hacking simulator that relies heavily on 80s nostalgia in hopes players will overlook the game’s glaring flaws.

The 1980s is a very nostalgic time for the American people and is responsible for influencing a lot of today’s pop culture. The ’80s can also be attributed to the success of plenty of movies and music due to the way it pulls at the heartstrings of even those who didn’t live through the neon decade. Commander ’85 is a sci-fi hacking simulator that attempts to harness the power of ’80s nostalgia but ends up failing to provide an enjoyable or memorable experience.

Commander ’85 borrows the classic ’80s storyline of a group of mischievous kids who accidentally get involved in government affairs while partaking in “normal” kid activities. The main character somehow gets a mysterious new computer called the Commander ’85 which comes complete with Artificial Intelligence and a network hacking device. The game starts with the player pulling a Ferris Bueller by hacking into the school’s computer to make all of his absent days disappear. Up until the gameplay begins, Commander ’85 sets the player up for what seems like is going to be another classic adventure-filled thrill-ride, but as soon as the PC boots up the fun is over.

Commander ’85 hits players with a fantastic synthwave soundtrack that wouldn’t feel out of place in an episode of Stranger Things. The game offers the quaint ability to turn the music off and on by interacting with a radio, but the player is going to want to keep it on as its one of the few enjoyable things about Commander ’85. For the entirety of the game, the player is confined to their room with a few objects they can interact with. However, the majority of the player’s time will be spent pulling their hair out while looking at the in-game monitor of a 1980s “supercomputer.”

As far as hacking simulators go, Commander ’85 hits the nail on the head of how difficult it must have been to hack in the ’80s. The computer is a terminal in which the player has to type a series of commands correctly to get the desired result. In order to learn the commands the player has to be an actual hacker or they need to read and memorize the entire in-game manual. However, the manual doesn’t provide all of the necessary information and assumes the player will figure out how to complete certain tasks. This leads to frustration number one as the game’s very first task can take hours due to the lack of proper explanation.

There are other sequences that take place throughout the game, but the majority of it is either furiously typing the same commands over and over, or waiting for something to happen to progress the storyline. The main character’s mother is also an obstacle as she will take away the computer if she becomes too frustrated with him. She makes the character go to bed, hang out with friends, or do other activities which entail the screen going black and the player re-entering their room after a certain period of time. The main character also has two friends who he communicates with strictly through a walkie-talkie that he sends on errands as the game’s way to keep the player from having to leave their room.

Beyond boring/frustrating gameplay and a recycled storyline, Commander ’85 has a lot of bugs that need squashing. Countless times through the story the player will have to back out to the game’s menu and reload their last save because the game refused to progress. Things get stuck in the player’s hand which prevents them from performing actions. These roadblocks paired with the struggle of playing Commander ’85’make it very tempting to close out of the game entirely.

Commander ’85 attempts to ride the wave of ’80s nostalgia, but there are far more elements that play into success than the atmosphere. For those who would enjoy taking a crack at a frustratingly difficult hacking simulator backed by a rehashed storyline, Commander ’85 might be for them. But for the average gamer, nostalgia isn’t enough to make Commander ’85 anything more than ok.

Commander ’85 will be available on PC on September 30. Screen Rant was provided a digital Steam code for the purpose of this review.

Disney’s D23 Expo Delayed to 2022

Published

Disney’s bienniel event is typically a star-studded affair that offers breaking news about highly-anticipated films and TV shows.

Disney has delayed its biennial D23 Expo to 2022. The company announced the one-year delay on its social media pages on Monday afternoon.

The next D23 Expo was originally scheduled to take place in summer 2021 but will now be held on September 9-11 in 2022. Disney did not specify why the expo had been delayed, but stated that the revised date would coincide with the company’s founding in 1923 and be used to kick off Disney’s 100th anniversary. The event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

Recent D23 Expos have been glitzy, star-studded affairs, as well as significant marketing opportunities for Disney. The 2019 event featured high-profile talents such as Chris Pratt, Dwayne Johnson, Tom Holland, and Emily Blunt, as well as surprise reveals such as an Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ featuring prequel trilogy star Ewan McGregor.

Disney also used last year’s expo to feature titles ranging from “Black Widow” and “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker,” to “Frozen II” and “Ford v Ferrari.” The last D23 Expo was held in August of last year, several months before Disney+ launched and Disney used the expo to unveil a discounted bundle for the streaming service.

D23 Expo 2019 was an especially news-heavy event for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Disney used the event to tease several Disney+ series including “Loki,” “WandaVision, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “What If…?” “Ms. Marvel,” “She-Hulk,” “Moon Knight,” and “Hawkeye,” though additional information on most of those series remains scant.

A handful of the titles teased during the last D23 Expo, such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe features “Black Widow” and “The Eternals,” have been repeatedly delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has also impacted Disney in ways beyond film and television production, such as via the closures of its various theme parks and cruise lines.

Though several of Disney’s upcoming titles have been delayed numerous times, the company recently released its live-action “Mulan” feature on Disney+ for $30. “WandaVision,” the streaming service’s first Marvel Cinematic Universe title, is expected to hit the platform in December, while the superhero franchise’s “Helstrom” series will premiere on Hulu on October 16.
