If Tommy Maitland, the host of the new version of the ’70s guilty pleasure The Gong Show, doesn’t look familiar, he really shouldn’t. Underneath prosthetics and a wig is Mike Myers, the comedian who became famous playing Wayne of Wayne’s World on Saturday Night Live and Austin Powers in the spy paraody movie series. While it’s hardly a secret that Myers is playing Maitland, he and other cast members have gone to great lengths to keep up the Maitland charade.
There’s always toxic levels of testosterone on this show. You jam a bunch of guys in a confined space without their phones, and sure, fighting is going to happen. Still, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this much fighting on The Bachelorette — and, surprisingly, it’s not just about one ridiculous hot head stomping around. Trying to keep track of who was stabbing who in the back this week started to feel like keeping a body count watching Game of Thrones — pointless and exhausting.
Before we move on to this week’s craziness, we have to wrap up last week’s mess — DeMario! As we know, the lying dog showed up at the mansion last week without a tie (apparently he couldn’t be bothered to fully unpack), begging Rachel for another chance at love. His plea? He regrets lying his ass off (poorly), and, um, well, he really likes Rachel, so let’s let bygones be bygones! That’s his argument in a nutshell — I suck, but I really dig you. Nice.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
