January might be the coldest month of the year, but Juan-uary is going to be hotter than the desert in summertime!
That’s what ABC is calling the month in promos for the new season of “The Bachelor,” in which sexy Latin single dad Juan Pablo Galavis searches for the woman of his (and his daughter’s) dreams.
The former pro soccer player became a fan favorite while vying for Desiree Hartsock’s heart in last summer’s “The Bachelorette.” You may have heard some high-pitched screams of “JUAN PABLO!” — or even made them yourself!
Yahoo TV has the latest promo for Juan Pablo's season (watch it above), which promises it will be “steamy, backstabby, and whatever this is” — a shot of a woman crawling underneath a bathroom stall door.
The best thing about the promo? Juan Pablo is shirtless 99 percent of the time!
As one of the contestants says, “Ay-yi-yi!”

After a masterful season of “Survivor” in which he controlled the game for weeks, Tyson Apostol outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted 19 other players to win $1 million.
When the near-unanimous jury vote revealed him to be the winner, it was a moment of redemption for the 34-year-old bike shop owner, who played (and lost) twice before. And this time, it was an experience that he got to share with girlfriend Rachel Foulger for a few days.
Apostol chatted with Yahoo! TV about his crafty gameplay, any regrets he has about the season, and whether he’d play in an all-winners edition of “Survivor.”
Congratulations on the win! What are you going to do with all that money?
I don't know! Cash it all in twos, two-dollar bills, and then roll around in it.
You got very emotional as Jeff Probst read the tally last night. Did you think that you had the votes to win?

SPOILER ALERT: This recap contains storyline and character spoilers.
After 39 days filled with blood, sweat, and tears, Tyson Apostol was crowned the winner of “Survivor: Blood vs. Water.”
The 34-year-old veteran of “Survivor: Tocantins” and “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” was the jury’s near-unanimous choice over Monica Culpepper and Gervase Peterson.
In a season that featured the loved ones of returning players, it was fitting that the bike shop owner’s drive to win was ignited by the elimination of his girlfriend, Rachel Foulger.
His triumph capped off a season marked by intense emotions. The twist of bringing in loved ones — then pitting them against the veterans — added a new level of intrigue and drama to the game.
Apostol also found redemption with his crafty gameplay this season. His decision on “Heroes vs. Villains” to stray from the main alliance’s plan to split votes between Russell Hantz and Parvati Swallow is widely considered to be one of the dumbest moves in "Survivor" history. But on “Blood vs. Water,” Apostol was in control for most of the game. He definitely outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted.
A rundown of the “Blood vs. Water” finale:

This year, so many couples sizzled on our television screens that steam came pouring out of the back. From first kisses to reigniting an old flame, 2013’s hottest TV hookups had us running for a cold shower. Here are 20 that turned us on!
1. The Juiciest Jam: Olivia and Fitz, “Scandal”
These two could burn down a building by just saying “hi.” Even though Olivia believes Fitz shot down the plane her mother was on, she can’t stay mad for long when the president shows her the house he built for them in Vermont. They definitely make it (and the living room rug) theirs.
2. Heating Up the North: Jon and Ygritte, “Game of Thrones”
Winter might be coming, but Jon and Ygritte make it feel more like a sultry summer day. These two had been pushing each other’s buttons ever since he “defected” from the Night’s Watch, and they finally shed all their heavy furs to get it on in a cave’s hot spring.
3. The Kiss That Changed Everything: Jess and Nick, “New Girl”

Will Storybrooke become the new Neverland?
In the tense winter finale of "Once Upon a Time," Emma, Snow White, and Prince Charming race to stop the diabolical Peter Pan from casting a new curse that could destroy the entire town.
This season's introduction of Peter Pan flipped the beloved character on his head. Yahoo TV chatted with Robbie Kay about the show's very different take on Pan, as well as his thoughts on whether the character has any good left in him.
This version of Peter Pan is very unique. What's it been like playing this iconic character as a villain?
It's been a very interesting dynamic to portray that character. Pan on the whole is a very, very interesting character, and it's very refreshing for the show, I suppose, to get a very young character into the cast. It's a huge divergence from the character we're used to. The original Peter Pan is seen very much as a protagonist and a hero ... It's been a much different spin on him. I've had a very, very good time creating that new kind of character, that darker, more sinister Pan.

Relationships are all about compromise, but for couples, it's always a question of how much.
And in the dark, intense, and thrilling winter finale of "The Vampire Diaries," Damon's answer to that is: Too much.
Damon has been on his best boyfriend behavior since he and Elena got together, but the revelations about the Augustine project and his past with Enzo and the Whitmores has re-opened an old wound that never really healed properly.
It's also reminded him of who he's been — and that's someone Damon refuses to let Elena be with. "I'm choosing to relieve you from having to defend me from every awful thing I've ever done," he explains, then leaves her to dissolve into tears.
Is this a breakup? Maybe, maybe not. But something's definitely broken.
Here's this week's status update on all the various relationships:
Elena and Damon
Status: On a break, maybe?
The phrase "game-changing" is tossed around a lot when it comes to television shows, but no series — absolutely no series, definitely now and perhaps ever — does it better than "Scandal."
The analogy of moving the chess pieces around? Nope. Not good enough. "Scandal" is more like an Etch-A-Sketch — just when you think you've got a handle on the characters and the plots, Shonda Rhimes and her evil team of writers shakes everything up.
As Scott Foley, who plays Jake Ballard, so eloquently put it:
Let's go straight to how the winter finale ended and where some of the characters are, shall we?
Olivia: Everything she thought about her mother and father are totally upended.
Mary Stuart has learned the hard way that being queen isn't all that it's cracked up to be.
This season on "Reign," Mary (Adelaide Kane) has gotten engaged to a man she hasn't seen since they were kids, moved to another country, and faced death threats.
And now she might become queen of another country!
In this sneak peek clip from tonight's big winter finale, Mary learns some potentially life-altering news: The queen of England is dying.
"Many suspect and believe the rightful heir to the English throne is you, Mary Stuart," King Henry proclaims. But while he's overjoyed at the news, Mary just looks stunned.
And that's not all! Henry goes on to note that Mary's marriage to his son, Francis (Toby Regbo) will help secure her claim.
"It's time you and Francis are wed," he declares.
Iconic television comedy "Murphy Brown" premiered 25 years ago, made Candice Bergen a star, and was famously the topic of a speech by Dan Quayle during the 1992 election.
But it could've all turned out very differently, as Bergen and creator Diane English on her talk show. CBS apparently didn't want Bergen to play the acid-tongued Murphy.
"They wanted someone much younger," Bergen acknowledged. "They said, 'Couldn't Murphy be coming back from a week at a spa, does it have to be a month at Betty Ford for alcoholism? And does she have to be 40, couldn't she be in her early 30s?' And Diane said, 'Are you insane? The whole point is her edges.'"
An incredulous Couric then revealed the name of the actress that the network almost cast instead — Heather Locklear!
As the audience gasped, Couric quickly made sure to say she had nothing against Locklear. "But she's not Murphy Brown!"
Amen to that!
It's Called 'Fifty Shades of Grayson' for a Reason! 7 Things to Know About the 'Vampire Diaries' Winter Finale
The humans are fighting back, and that could mean big trouble for Elena, Damon, and the rest of the Mystic Falls gang on "The Vampire Diaries."
Last week, we got an in-depth look at the decades-long Augustine project, which used Damon as a vampire test subject. When he finally got free, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) embarked on a quest for revenge against every living Whitmore — a story that shocked and appalled girlfriend Elena (Nina Dobrev).
But then, Elena herself was taken to Dr. Wes Maxfield's lab of doom. The winter finale is "a pretty intense episode," promised writer and executive producer Caroline Dries.
"We start with Elena still in that lab and she's wondering, a) where she is, b) what the heck is Wes doing to her, because he seems to have a very clear and secret agenda," Dries told Yahoo TV in a phone interview.
