- Rachel Lindsay has spoken to Peter Kraus for the first time since seeing him at the After the Final Rose ceremony in 2017.
- Rachel admitted that she and Peter were tempted to follow each other on social media after their talk, but chose not to.
It’s almost hard to believe that the last time Rachel Lindsay and Peter Kraus spoke to each other IRL was at that extremely awkward After the Final Rose ceremony back in 2017, right? Bachelor Nation peeps are literally always running into each other, but somehow Rachel and Peter haven’t had the opportunity to exchange words. That is, until now.
During Rachel and Becca Kufrin’s Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Rachel revealed that she and Peter “communicated” during the George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests and “he was asking me questions about it and stuff for some advice about responses he had gotten.” (Whatever that means.)
Rachel didn’t share specifics, but she did say that her and Peter’s talk almost led to them following each other on social media. Ultimately, Rachel and Peter decided not to do that because “it would just turn into something that it shouldn’t.”
“I still get messages that tell me, ‘You were really into Peter.’ It’s like, guys, I’m married now,” Rachel added, making a point to note that she and her husband Bryan Abasolo happily celebrated their first year of marriage recently. “It’s sad because we were like, ‘It’s probably not a good idea to hit that follow button.'”

For what it’s worth, Peter seems to have moved on too—back in 2018, he shared that while he had “zero communication” with Rachel at the time, he was still pretty tuned in to the happenings of her life with Bryan. “She’s still very much in the press, and so I see it from time to time. I’m happy for them,” he told Us Weekly.
In the great word of Marcia Brady: “Sure, Jan!”

Revealed: Amazon’s New Devices are Faster, Smarter and a Must-Have for Your Home
Products featured are independently selected by our editorial team and we may earn a commission from purchases made from our links; the retailer may also receive certain auditable data for accounting purposes.
Amazon announced a slate of new hardware in an hour-long virtual event it held today at its Seattle office.
The presentation kicked off with an update on the company’s sustainability goals, which include using 100% recycled fabric for its echo speakers, introducing a low power mode to its new and existing devices, and giving users an “energy dashboard” to monitor their electricity consumption.
The rest of Amazon’s keynote was dedicated to hardware announcements, which ranged from updates to its Echo smart speakers, Eero Wi-Fi routers, and Fire TV sticks, to entirely new smart security equipment from Ring.
Amazon made the most significant changes to its Echo Dot, Echo, and Echo Show 10 smart speakers, which all received a complete redesign. The Echo Dot and Echo have a new spherical shape, with fabric on top, and a plastic base on the bottom.
The regular Echo now has a Zigbee smart antenna inside, which allows it to connect to even more smart home accessories without requiring an external hub. This new feature (and a few others, like improved speech recognition) are enabled by Amazon’s new AZ1 chip, which makes its debut with this device.
The Echo Dot will be available on October 22 for $49.99, and the regular Echo will be available on October 22 for $99.99.
The Echo Show 10 retains its HD display, but the screen sits on a rotating display, which can follow you around while you’re on a video call, or swivel in your direction by recognizing where your voice is coming from. Amazon says the Show’s motors have a “brushless design,” which won’t make a lot of noise when it’s moving around.
The most significant change is that the Echo Show 10 now has a 13MP (megapixel) camera, and support for both Zoom and Chime, two popular video conferencing apps. Amazon also announced that Netflix will be available on the Echo Show 10 for the first time. The Echo Show 10 also features Amazon’s new AZ1 chip, and will be available for $249.99 and is “coming soon.”
All of the new Echo devices benefit from a handful of new updates to Alexa, Amazon’s smart-home assistant. You’ll be able to tell Alexa when it makes an error, and it’ll learn from its mistakes to avoid them again. Alexa can also insert pauses, and breaths, which can mimic the experience of speaking to a real person. By using context clues and machine learning, Alexa devices will also understand when you’re talking to them instead of another person.
Amazon also announced hardware refreshes for its Fire TV Stick, which is 50% more powerful, supports HD streaming, both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, and consumes 50% less power. It’ll be available on September 30 for $39.99. The company also announced the Fire TV Stick Lite, which doesn’t support Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos, hasn’t received the power bump, and will be available on September 30 for $29.99.
Both devices will receive the latest version of Fire TV OS, the software that power’s Amazon’s media streamers. The latest update includes support for picture-in-picture, and an updated version of Alexa that won’t take over your entire TV set when you answer a question.
Both of these Fire TV Sticks were developed to work with Luna, Amazon’s new video game streaming service, which launches in the United States very soon. Luna costs $5.99 per month, and includes unlimited access to over 50 premium games; Amazon announced a partnership with Ubisoft, which will double Luna’s game library.
You’ll be able to play these games using Amazon’s new Luna controller, which will be available for $49.99, and launch shortly. Subscribers will be able to play Luna games on the Fire TV Stick, computers running Windows or MacOS, and phones and tablets running iOS and Android. Luna also integrates with Twitch, the most popular video game streaming services. If you see a streamer playing a game available on Luna, you’ll be able to launch the game and start playing it yourself.
The hardware announcements continued with updates to Amazon’s Eero and Eero Pro routers, which both received two significant updates. The bigger one is that these new routers support Wi-Fi 6, the latest version of the wireless standard that will enable faster speeds, more stable connections, and the ability to connect to over 75 devices simultaneously.
The second change is that both of these routers now have a Zigbee antenna inside, so you’ll be able to connect your phone to more smart-home accessories through your router instead of an external hub. Both routers will launch on November 6: the eero 6 will be available for for 129$, while the eero 6 Pro will be available for for $229.
Finally, Amazon announced a flurry of new connected security devices coming from Ring. This includes three car security gadgets: Ring Car Alarm, Ring Car Cam, and Ring Car Connect. The Car Alarm will make a loud noise if someone bumps into your car, or tries to break in. You’ll also receive a notification if your car is towed.
Ring’s Car Cam is a dash cam that will continually monitor your car, even when it’s turned off. The Car Cam will also provide emergency crash assistance if you get into an accident, even if you’re unable to issue a command. Amazon has also announced a new Alexa feature called Traffic Stop, which will begin a brand new recording, send video stream to the cloud, and alert a family member that you’ve been pulled over.
The final Ring hardware announcement was the Always Home Cam, an indoor HD camera built into a drone, which can fly on a designated flight path throughout your place, or go to an area if it hears a sound that’s out of place. These Ring devices will be available between now and early 2021, but are not available for preorder just yet. Ring also introduced end-to-end encryption on any video sent from your camera to the cloud, which will roll out next year.
All of this new hardware affirms Amazon’s commitment to dominate the smart home space. They enable you to get on the internet, control your smart-home devices, play games in and out of your house, stream videos, and monitor your home and car. Alexa ties all of this gear together, and allows you to use a single smart platform for many of the devices in your life.
19 Of The Best Reactions To Locky Reaching Peak Fucc Boi On The Bachie Finale
Well, another Bachelor season has wrapped, and Locky told Bella he loves her before dumping her for Irena.
It might be television’s biggest cop out since the Honey Bagel… um Ham Burglar…uhhh Honey Badger picked no one. Honestly though, this is worse, because now Irena knows her new boyfriend was ALSO in love with Bella. Telling both girls he loved them? Peak fucc boi behaviour if you ask me.
In what felt like an hour and a half of Locky crying and struggling to make a decision, he told us his conundrum: pick Bella who gives him “this feeling” and um has eyes OR pick Irena who is “so gentle” and “can protect me”. In the end, he picked Irena, because he could “see a future” with her.
The whole episode Locky is plagued by indecision and it’s just so frustrating. Even Osher couldn’t bare it.
At the beginning of the episode, Bella and Irena meet Locky’s mum at the same time. Yes, at the same time. Locky hopes that his mum can make a decision for him about which girl to pick. She is unhelpful, of course. However, she lets us know that the right woman for Locky needs to “put him in his place” and be “strong and confident.”
Locky then takes Irena off-roading in a golf buggy?? Bella on the other hand, gets to ride in a chopper and then an orchestra serenades them. During both dates, he tells Bella and Irena he loves them, which is totally not le vibe.
After telling both girls he loves them and giving everyone in Australia trust issues, we get to the final rose ceremony. Locky breaks down crying in front of Bella and says he loves her AGAIN, but then also breaks up with her. Weird. Bella then says “can I leave?” and tbh fair. Finally, he gets to Irena and says he loves her TOO, but this time he actually means it.
For *blindingly obvious reasons*, Twitter was also ticked the fuck off about Locky’s indecision.
Honeybadger will finally comes out of hiding as he is no longer the most hated Bachy #TheBachelorAU

The Honey Badger copped a lot of shit for not choosing either of the girls on The Bachelor.
For what it’s worth, I’d take that rejection any day of the week over a guy telling me he loved me when a) he doesn’t mean it & b) he’s also telling another girl the same.#TheBachelorAU

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik welcome first child, a baby daughter
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are officially parents!
The supermodel, 25, and One Direction singer, 27, have welcomed their first child together.
Malik shared a black-and-white photo of him holding his baby’s hand.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” Malik wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “To try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x.”
An hour later, Hadid posted on her Instagram, “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
The couple is reportedly “thrilled” about their new addition.
“They’ve been through their ups and downs, but neither stopped caring about the other,” sources close to the couple told People. “They’ve jumped on the timing of having a baby and are preparing for their new lives.”

On April 30, Hadid confirmed she was pregnant during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
“Obviously, we wish they could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” she said
Then, in July, Hadid explained why she has being trying to stay out of the public eye during her pregnancy.
“I’m just taking my time with sharing my pregnancy, and you guys will see it when you see it,” she said during an Instagram Live. “Right now I just want to experience it, and I just don’t wanna worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and worry about having to look cute or post something.”
Last week, fans were already convinced Hadid had given birth after her father, Mohamed Hadid, posted a since-deleted handwritten to Instagram saying “hello” to his grandchild.

“Hello little grandchild, it is me, my heart as happy as can be,” the letter said. “I wish for you the sun and the moon, I wish for you a happy time. Know that Grandpa’s always near, I’d do anything, anything for you, my dear.
“When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew my heart would always belong to you.”
Hadid and Malik have been dating on and off for nearly five years. They last split up in May 2018 and reunited for good in November 2019.
