Bekah Martinez Reveals How She Became a Missing Persons Case

If you follow The Bachelor Spoilers, Bekah M's elimination probably wasn't a huge shock.

But you know what was weird for everyone? Reports that Bekah M's mother reported her missing while she was on The Bachelor

As you'll see in the video below, Bekah herself is now explaining everything to Jimmy Kimmel.

Bekah martinez eliminated

If you read our The Bachelor recap or watched the episode, you know that Bekah Martinez -- the famously young contestant -- was finally eliminated from the competition.

Tia, in her desperation to win Arie, sabotaged Bekah M by telling Arie that the 22-year-old isn't ready for marriage.

And then Bekah got eliminated, though Tia didn't really do herself any favors, either.

All of this comes on top of the story of how Bekah came to be reported missing to the police.

As the story goes, Bekah Martinez's mother didn't know where Bekah was while she was on The Bachelor, vying for Arie Lyendyk Jr's heart. And so her mother ended up reporting her missing.

As you'll see in the video below, Bekah -- though she was definitely reported missing -- wants to clear the air, which is why she spoke to Jimmy Kimmel.

"I wanted to set the record straight. See, a lot of people thought I lied to my mother, saying that I was on a farm when I was actually on The Bachelor."

Very specifically, a marijuana farm in Northern California. Police note that some such farms are still unlicensed, and any illegal business can be dangerous. Particularly for a young woman.

"But no, I had already been eliminated from the show."

Which, of course, happened under the cover of secrecy. But she did head out of town for a while.

"And I just decided to go up to the mountains for a couple of weeks."

She describes how her mother came to worry.

"And I was there for six or seven days without phone service, [and] I thought that I was going to have phone service. And I'd told my mother that I would."

Some parents are fine with that (again, Bekah is an adult). Others, well, start to panic. And apparently Bekah realized that she'd been out of touch for too long.

"And you know, I just had this weird feeling on like the sixth or seventh day, I was like 'I need to go home now.'"

But it was a little too late.

"So I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents. And, yeah, come to find out, only twelve hours before, my mother called the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing."

Bekah does clarify that yes, this was a marijuana farm, though she clearly prefers to characterize the place as "the mountains."

"I’m not a weed farmer. I’m still a nanny in L.A."

Obviously, folks, she doesn't want to get a reputation. See, her friend has a marijuana farm.

Bekah was just there visiting in the aftermath of what must have been a bizarre and high-pressure experience filming The Bachelor.

Also, it's great that she and so many of her fellow contenders keep in touch.

Our favorite part of that interview might be when Bekah confesses that she'd have preferred if the leading man had been Peter.

You and the viewers both, girl. The Bachelor Nation has not been subtle about how they feel about Peter or about Arie.

And speaking of Arie's reputation with fans, it was speculated before this season got started that Arie was on the show to build up his brand.

Bekah is 22. Arie wouldn't endear himself to anyone by sending her home in the first episode, but his glaring age gap would have made him seem creepy if he'd taken her too close to the end. For this reason, a lot of fans were not surprised to see Bekah go.

But a lot of folks were sorry to see her leave. She was such a treat.

Stormy Daniels Discusses Her Trump Affair on Jimmy Kimmel

In what would have been a huge scandal for a normal presidency, Donald Trump is accused of having had an affair with a porn star and then paying her hush money out of his own campaign fund.

Stormy Daniels, however, is not at liberty to speak on what may or may not have happened. But that doesn't prevent her from talking to Jimmy Kimmel.

You might think that an interview with someone under an NDA would be boring. As you'll see in the video below, this interview is anything but.

Stormy daniels and jimmy kimmel

The alleged affair took place in 2006, just months after the birth of his son, Barron. He had been married to Melania for a little over a year.

Though initial reports described only one sexual encounter, a later report on the details of "generic" sex with Trump revealed a lot -- including that their relationship went on for months.

Also, Trump is terrified of sharks. Allegedly.

Stormy Daniels, who was born Stephanie Clifford, allegedly had to sign a non-disclosure agreement in exchange for $130,000 which was reportedly paid to her by Trump's lawyer using funds from his 2016 Presidential campaign.

So, though she reportedly spoke about this years ago, she is not at liberty to confirm or deny ... anything.

Despite that, this video below is one hell of an interview.

Stormy daniels smiles

Fans of Trump who believe that this is all some sort of conspiracy to discredit Trump  like to portray Stormy Daniels as some Leftist concoction.

(Which is silly. Discredit Trump? Anyone still giving credit to Trump is fine with everything he's said and done since day one of his campaign, and probably cannot be reached by anything or anyone. He could eat a live puppy on television and they'd go "And YOU thought he didn't like dogs!")

The reality, however, is that Stormy Daniels is someone who promoted Trump businesses (attending the launch of Trump Vodka, for example; one of his many failed enterprises).

She's also -- unbelievably -- a big fan of Sarah Palin's. Remember when Sarah Palin almost being Vice President was the worst thing that we could imagine? It turns out that she was just foreshadowing.

So she doesn't quite fit the mold for a left-wing hero.

That said ... she appears to have a great sense of humor.

Stormy daniels laughs

We suppose that you have to know how to laugh if you're one of the humans cursed with the knowledge of what Trump's penis looks like.

And Stormy Daniels really shows off her sense of humor and wit in her interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

(Some may say that Jimmy Kimmel or someone else coached her with funny, non-disclosing replies to his questions ahead of time. Even if that's the case, keeping her cool like she does is still impressive)

We can see why she says that her favorite show is Saturday Night Live. She'd be pretty good on an improv show.

And before you say that she's not an actress, remember that she was a porn star, that she's also a porn director, and that she was apparently able spend time with Trump without him being clued in to disgust.

And, in this video below, Stormy expresses some definite disgust.

One of the cutest moments is when Jimmy Kimmel holds up a Trump doll that looks like it belongs in a Chucky film, asking her to show him what she and Trump did together.

Rather than complying, she holds up a Stormy Daniels doll with tape over its mouth. Very cute.

Another funny moment is when Jimmy lays out three carrots of different sizes and tries to get Stormy to choose one (by which he means that he's trying to get her divulge details about Trump's penis).

Stormy abstains, replying: "Who wants a carrot?!" That's a big mood.

On a sad note, she mentions the lies that have been concocted about her on the internet. She doesn't single out the stuff about Trump as lies, just conspiracy theory stuff about her that people make up. That's not cool.

It's no exaggeration to say that Stormy Daniels made us laugh or at least chuckle with almost everything that she said.

Part of that is Jimmy being a good host, but a lot of it is just Stormy being charismatic and likable.

Even if we don't see eye-to-eye with her politics, we can agree that she's a charming person.

Also, she doesn't deserve the lies that people concoct about her. Especially because she's a mom.

Perhaps, one day, she'll be free to tell all about Trump. That will be quite an experience.

Arie Luyendyk Jr.: Did He Just Reveal Who Wins The Bachelor?

Jimmy Kimmel is at it again, interviewing Arie Luyendyk Jr. and pressing him to reveal forbidden The Bachelor spoilers.

Naturally, Arie can't actually divulge how the season goes. You know how this works.

Except that, as you'll see in the video below, it looks like Arie may have slipped up and revealed something that he didn't mean to.

Arie luyendyk jr and jimmy kimmel

As you know, Jimmy Kimmel has a history of interviewing each season's Bachelor (or Bachelorette) and confronting them with his wife's theory of which contestants will make it the farthest ... and who will win.

Molly -- Jimmy's wife -- tends to do pretty well with her guesses. But only pretty well.

For example, Jimmy interviewed Rachel Lindsay at the beginning of her season of The Bachelorette. The theory presented? That Rachel was engaged to Peter Kraus.

That was a simpler, more innocent time, when people believed that Rachel Lindsay had sense.

Arie luyendyk jr pleads innocent

Arie, of course, insists that he can't reveal anything.

In fact, though past Bachelors and Bachelorettes have said "oh, my fiance and I are just laying low until the season ends," Arie's taking that a step further.

He's refusing to even tell Jimmy Kimmel when the last time that he saw his fiancee was.

Weird.

But then Jimmy Kimmel stops asking -- and starts sharing his theories. Well, his wife's theories.

Arie luyendyk jr on jimmy kimmel

We already know who Arie Luyendyk Jr's final four will be, but here are the names that Jimmy listed:

First up is Tia Booth. Because Tia is nice and likable and so are her friends, though Jimmy (well, really Molly) predicts that Arie won't pick her in the end.

Next is Chelsea, whom Jimmy has pegged as this season's Bachelor Villain -- great to keep around as fodder (though ... all the way to the final four might be too much).

Then comes Bekah M, and we can only assume that her youth played a role in getting her into the (imagined) final four.

Or perhaps Jimmy Kimmel just wanted to highlight how rare short hair is in the franchise.

As if to emphasize the many, many redundant names in this season, Jimmy also named Becca K (Becca Kufrin, not to be confused with Bekah with a K), whom he noted Arie must have taken notice of to some degree after just the first episode.

Arie luyendyk jr shrugs helplessly

Jimmy Kimmel even goes so far as to name Becca Kufrin as the prospective winner.

Now, if you've taken the plunge into our spoilers, you know who Arie chooses at the end of the season.

But what's catching people's attention is how Arie responded -- seeming to let his guard slip -- when Jimmy brought up Chelsea, the potential "villain."

"Chelsea, you gave her the first impression rose, she’s very attractive, she’s aggressive."

He uses that aggression -- often a positive quality -- to lead into how he sees her role on the show playing out this season.

"She’s also clearly going to be the villain, so you need to keep her around for a while."

The producers need to do that. Arie may have other priorities.

"You won’t pick her, you’ll just keep giving her roses so she can antagonize everyone else in the house."

Arie seemed to break character in that moment (as you'll see in the video), going from nodding to shaking his head. Was he saying that she's not in his final four, or protesting her "villain" label?

We don't know.

Jimmy Kimmel created a distraction after he'd named all four women, by proposing that Arie have a threesome (since he'd mentioned falling in love with two contestants) with Becca and with Bekah.

Jimmy's delivery sounds more like a guy broing it out and less like someone promoting healthy polyamory, so it was a line bound to rub people the wrong way.

But also a line bound to help Jimmy take some of the heat for Arie's possible slip-up.

Decide for yourself if Arie really slipped up -- or if it's some kind of misdirect or whatever -- by watching the video below.

Jimmy Kimmel Makes Emotional Return… with a Surprise Guest!

Jimmy Kimmel made a triumphant, emotional and tear-filled return to late-night television on Monday.

After taking last week off because his child had a heart procedure, the comedian came out for his opening monologue yesterday with a very special guest:

His son, Billy!

“I was out last week – because this guy had heart surgery," Kimmel told his audience, his seven-month in his arms and tears in his eyes.

"But look he’s fine everybody, he may have pooped but he’s fine. Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn’t… it’s unbelievable.”

Kimmel shared the story of Billy's health problems with viewers back in May.

He then became an advocate for universal health care, making it his mission to make sure kids everywhere - regardless of their parents' wealth - could afford the best care possible.

In this case, though, the only message Kimmel sent was about little Billy and how he's holding up these days.

“Billy is doing great, by the way. He has one more surgery – this is amazing – he had an operation a week ago," the host said, adding:

"They say he’ll probably on track to win at least a bronze medal at the Olympics in 2036.”

Billy was born in April.

He underwent his first surgery just days later because he wasn't getting enough oxygen, the doctors explained at the time.

After giving a heartfelt speech about his son and pushing for a better health care system, Kimmel found himself at the center of a political debate.

But he held his ground. He continued his fight.

And, most importantly, so did little Billy.

During his monologue, Kimmel called out politicians and referred to the Children's Health Insurance Policy.

"Why hasn't CHIP been funded already?" he asked. "If these were potato chips they were taking away from us, we would be marching on Washington with pitchforks and spears right now."

He added:

"Jam the House and Senate phones tonight, tomorrow - as long as it takes. Tell them to take a break from tax cuts for a minute and fully fund CHIP immediately."

Watch the adorable toddler and his father make all late-night viewers cry now:
