The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Week of September 28 – Steffy's Intervention Details – Ridge's New Wedding Shatters Brooke

The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers for the week of September 28-October 2 tease that Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) loved ones will rally around her. Steffy may be furious with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) right now, but that’s not going to stop him from taking action.

Liam has to do what’s best for Steffy – and what’s best for her right now is an intervention.

Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan’s (Tanner Novlan) heart will break for Steffy when Liam updates him on the pill situation. Liam will explain how it all went down and seek Finn’s help in dealing with this. Finn should agree that Steffy’s clearly addicted and needs assistance to get her life straightened out.

The first step is admitting you have a problem, so they just have to make Steffy see that she indeed needs support. As Steffy’s father, Ridge will be part of this intervention, too.

Liam, Finn and Ridge will all take turns explaining how much they care about Steffy. They won’t want to see Steffy go any further down this dark path, especially when what’s most important to her is being a good mom.

Kelly Spencer (Avalon and Collette Gray) needs Steffy to keep being the same great mother she’s always been, but Steffy can’t be that if she’s a drug addict.

Although Steffy will remain in denial at first, it looks like it’ll be Finn’s plea that tears her walls down and kicks off her true recovery. Steffy’s going to trust Finn eventually and will rely on him to get through the difficult battle ahead.

As for Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle), she’ll fret over Steffy’s well-being and the toll this will take on Kelly. B&B spoilers say Liam and Hope will have a tough discussion about Steffy’s treatment and how they’ll handle things. Hope and Liam will certainly want to shield Kelly from as much of the drama as they can.

In the meantime, Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) will learn Ridge and Shauna Fulton Forrester’s (Denise Richards) new wedding is happening. Ridge will fill Brooke in and leave her tormented by the thought of Ridge saying “I do” once again.

Shauna will probably grapple with more guilt, but she’ll still be pleased that the do-over nuptials are moving forward.

Naturally, Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) will be thrilled since this was her grand plan. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say Quinn had better enjoy the taste of success while it lasts – because it’s not going to last long! Brooke will face devastation for now, but things will turn around for her in the coming episodes.

Other Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say a promotion is headed Carter Walton’s (Lawrence Saint-Victor) way. Carter will be moving on up in the world of Forrester – and that means spending more time with Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes).

This should give Carter and Zoe a reason to celebrate as well as a reason to deepen their romance.

As other B&B news becomes available, we’ll pass along more details. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say some gripping scenes are coming up, so keep watching. CDL’s your one-stop source for scorching Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, news and updates, so be sure to pop back in often.

OD Chez Nous: The favorite candidate of returning viewers

Published

on

By

Phew, big night tonight and although we expected so much intensity with the multiple rumors that have circulated this week, no one will be disappointed following the viewing of the show tonight, that’s for sure. !

But above all, Kevin and Julie flew to Eeyou Istchee, an Eastern Cree territory, an indigenous nation. They were also able to experience an immersion in this sublime territory by picking mushrooms, calling the moose as well as several other activities in the heart of nature. Although Kevin has friendzoné, they had a great time together and it was really cool to see.

As for the virtual trip, Karine was the lucky one selected to make a change of era and transport herself to a Jurassic world. The candidate chose her favorite Patrick, who did not seem particularly excited … He also admitted it to Karine who, as you have surely guessed, did not take it really well. .. In short, not the evening that Karine had dreamed of, but at least things are clear!

All the candidates gathered at the Halloween party and that’s when things got tough … As you probably know, Eloise had symptoms and was quarantined for two days earlier this week. Several rumors had been circulating for a few days and were confirmed this evening: Eloise did indeed watch episodes of Occupation Double and therefore had information from the outside. In short, she cheated.

So she arrived at the party and immediately went to Charles to share some information with him. She learned in particular that Vincent wanted to “take her out” in week two … And so, Charles immediately wanted to attack Vincent.

Éloïse also took the time to go see Kiari to tell her that Vincent had already spoken behind her back … In short, a good drama session …

Charles immediately went to see his boys or his disciples, Jamie and Carl, in order to form an alliance. Charles’s objective is very clear: to put Vincent “the snake” out of the adventure.

On the side of the other candidates, it was a lot of frenzy tonight! Starting with Naadei and Patrick who finally know their mutual age. Although they have 10 years of difference, that did not prevent them from frencher and directly in the camera in addition! It was beautiful, as if we were there!

Julie-Anne and Jordan as well as Stacey and Jamie also frenché, finally!

Julie and Kevin made their entry into the party and Julie was quick to tell Karine what she thinks of her, that is, that she tries to separate Naadei and Patrick by saying anything. Karine left the party crying and we also had a little crisis, of course!

After the party, Éloïse confessed to the girls that she had been to see the shows. They react rather well, with the exception of Naadei who learns it from Jay, a little later …

This week it was the boys who gathered for an elimination supper. Jay told the whole story surrounding Eloise and the boys are disappointed and really unsettled by this news so much that he does not protect Eloise from elimination, but rather Andréanne, Naadei and Stacey.

But it was the mixed house that had the final say tonight and it was, honestly, the worst deliberation seen in Double Occupation. Jay obviously made them aware of the whole situation surrounding Eloise, but the candidates preferred to discuss Vincent on the pretext that he is the villainous traitor of the adventure. So they decided to call her and clarify things before taking any action.

Despite a deliberation that leaned on the elimination of Noémie (with the aim of eliminating Vincent at the same time), it is rather Julie, the darling candidate of the public, who had to pack her bags. It is the most heartbreaking departure since the beginning of the adventure. The candidates, but especially the viewers, will certainly miss his extraordinary energy and his delicious expressions.

The Best Portable Projectors for Your Next Movie Night at Home

Published

Until recently, the idea that you could bring a projector anywhere you go was a work of science fiction, or at the very least technology for people with a lot of cash to burn.

Thankfully that’s no longer the case, and there’s never been a better time to pick one up. There are hundreds of options out there, and each ones comes with its own set of pros and cons. We found five great ones, which strike a balance between performance, extras, and price, so you don’t have to.

What Are the Best Portable Projectors?

There are many factors to consider when choosing the best portable projector for you; below are the most important ones, which we considered while we were researching this list.

Native Resolution: A lot of projectors accept HD content, but very few of them can actually produce an HD image. Many of them use a technology called “downsampling,” which means it takes a high resolution image, and scrunches it down to a lower quality one. Think of it this way: You could play a Blu-ray on an old tube TV,

Throw Distance: This is a math equation that calculates how big a projector’s image will be based on how far away it is from the screen or wall it’s projecting onto. The further away the projector is from the wall, the larger the image will be. Some projectors are categorized as “short throw,” which means they’re calibrated to throw a larger image from a shorter distance.

Brightness: The image thrown by a projector is highly susceptible to light pollution, which will dim its image before it hits your screen or wall. The brighter the projector, the more it’s able to overcome light pollution. Unfortunately, the brighter the projector, the lower the battery life. If you plan on using your projector at night, brightness won’t be as big of a factor, but it’s something to consider if you’re going to use it to replace your TV in a well-lit room.

Weight: The biggest upside to having a portable projector is its portability, so it’s important to factor in weight. All of the projectors on our list weigh less than five pounds, and will fit in a backpack, but this is definitely a factor to consider if you’re planning on carrying your projector around a lot.

Ports: Portable projectors are smaller than the ones used in home theater systems, which means they don’t have as much room for ports. Ports let you connect computers, game consoles, phones, or tablets to the projector, so the more ports the better.

Speakers: All of the portable projectors on this list have built-in speakers, so you don’t have to carry a pair around with you to watch a movie. That said, the speakers are generally smaller, and less powerful because of space restraints, and can add to power consumption.

Battery life: Portable projectors are a battery power balancing act: brightness, speaker size, weight, and resolution all play a part in how much time you’ll get to use them per charge. Most have different power settings, which gives you some control over how long they’ll last, but in general you should expect to get through one or two movies without much trouble.

1. LG PF50KA Portable Full HD LED Smart Home Theater

It has a maximum screen size of 100 inches, which is on-par with most portable projectors and can throw a 40-inch screen from a distance of 4.1 feet. LG has done a good job balancing tech specs and size; at 2.1 pounds, the PF50KA is a fairly light option.

That lightness does have a downside: this projector only has two 1w speakers, and gets 2.5 hours of battery life, which is the lowest on this list. All things considered, if you’re looking for a high resolution projector, or plan on using it in conditions with a lot of light, this is a great choice.

2. Anker Nebula Mars II Pro

Anker’s Nebula Mars II Pro stands out by balancing traditional projector specs with a bunch of useful “smart” features. It has a native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p), 500 Lumens of brightness, dual 10w speakers, and gets three hours of battery life. It can throw the largest screen: 150 inches, Anker doesn’t say anything about its throw distance. The speakers actually stand out the most, because they’re five times more powerful than the other projectors on this list.

This projector’s biggest problem is its size: at 3.94 pounds it’s significantly heavier than the other projectors we’re recommending. It does have a built-in carrying strap, but the Nebula Mars II will still be the most difficult to carry.

3. ViewSonic M1 Portable Projector

These are all great features, but they come at the cost of resolution (854 x 480; 480p), and brightness (250 lumens). It can throw an image up to 100″ from 8.9 feet away, or 60 inches from 5.1 feet away, but the image will look worse than the native HD projectors above. It does have Harmon Karden stereo speakers, though, so it should sound better than average.

If you’re looking for a projector that’s mostly for office presentations, and occasionally for outdoor movie nights, this is your best bet.

4. Optoma LV130 Mini Projector

Optoma’s LV 130 Mini lives up to its name: It weighs under one pound (0.8 pounds to be exact), but that extreme portability means making some sacrifices.

This projector has a native resolution of 854 x 400, and can throw a maximum screen size of 80 inches from 6.43 feet away. Its ports are also limited to one HDMI, one USB, and a headphone jack. The headphone jack might be necessary because the LV 130 only has one two-watt speaker.

On the upside, this projector gets better-than-average battery life: 4.5 hours, and its portability shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s possible to carry this projector in any bag without using up much room, or adding too much weight. If you plan on taking a projector with you everywhere you go, or don’t mind trading a large screen size for image quality, this is the right choice.

5. VANKYO Leisure 3W Mini Projector

VANKYO’s Leisure Mini Projector is an excellent beginner’s choice for people who want to bring a big screen with them on the go. It’s not battery-powered like the other projectors on this list, but at only 2.1 pounds, it won’t weigh you down.

This projector has a native resolution of 800 x 480 (480p), and has a maximum screen size of 170 inches; that’s the biggest screen of any projector on this list, but it’ll need to be 18 feet away from a wall to create it. VANKYO says the sweet spot for this projector is 90 inches, which makes sense because of its lower resolution.

It’s not the highest-resolution projector, and you’ll need to plugged in at all times, but VANKYO’s Leisure Mini has a lot to offer.
