'Sweet Home Alabama' finaleIt was the end of his second season on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Fri., 9PM ET on CMT), but this time it was Tribble Reese tasked with breaking one final person's heart on his way to choosing his winner. He was one of the eliminated bachelors in the reality show's first season.


In that first season, a country boy won out, and it looks like it could become a pattern on the show. Despite saying "I love you" to city girl Jacqueline Honuluk on their final date cruise in New York City, he said that his heart "keeps falling more and more in love" with country girl Tristan Smith.

Hailey Glassman, 'Sweet Home Alabama''Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT) flips it up for its second season, bringing in a bevy of girls to try and woo Tribble Reese. Reese struck out as one of the bachelors last season on 'Alabama,' but is back as CMT follows the 'Bachelor/Bachelorette' formula.

While it was fun for the girls to size up the competition, one from New York was recognized almost immediately. Hailey Glassman was infamously involved with Jon Gosselin when his marriage with Kate collapsed, leading Mandy to dub her "the ultimate homewrecker."

rodeo clown Boyd Bush on 'CMT Made'Being a rodeo clown is no laughing matter. It's serious business, and it takes some serious training. That may not be something Boyd Bush fully realized when he went on to 'CMT Made' (Thu., 11PM ET on CMT) to have his dreams of being a rodeo clown realized.

The time in the gym was brutal, trying to get him in better shape, and the time with the animals was perhaps even more brutal. And so Boyd made a decision that could have haunted him his entire life.

"I'm going to have to say this is it. It's just not gonna happen," he told his trainer, Coach Hollywood Yates. Yates was livid that Boyd would throw away an opportunity to fulfill his dreams like this just because it's hard, but Boyd was sure.

Ali Dee, 'Texas Women'Ali Dee celebrated her record release and made a big decision about her future on the season finale of 'Texas Women' (Thu., 10PM ET on CMT). Her dream is to make it big in country music, but she feels to do that she needs to be in Nashville instead of Dallas.

So she made the bold move to just do it. She packed up her things and headed out onto the road to follow her dreams, which is a bolder move than most people are able to make. Win or lose, she'll be able to say that she absolutely gave it her all.

Even better, she was out the door with the right attitude about what it's going to take. "If everything goes as planned, I'll be hitting the road going to every single little town, big town, wherever I can go to play my music," she said optimistically. "So the work starts now."

Devin Grissom, 'Sweet Home Alabama'In the penultimate installment of 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT), Devin cut the field in half, sending two suitors packing before next week's big finale. With only one "city guy" left, would she leave the option of leaving her Southern roots alive?


As it turned out, she would not. She decided that the South is where she belongs, and sent Jason packing. And really, that was the only reason she gave him. She could have saved the show a whole lot of work in casting city boys if she'd just decided that up front.

Devin Grissom, 'Sweet Home Alabama'You never know what is going to be the reason for an elimination on a dating show, but on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT), this week's elimination became a foregone conclusion. Devin Grissom enlisted the aid of her father in helping her make some tough decisions about the remaining guys.


So Dad went detective and took to the computer to see what he could find out about each of them. In his searching, it didn't take long to uncover the secret past of Michael "Flex" Dean. Actually, it may not have been so much a secret, as just that Dean didn't seem to think it was a big deal.

A Cop Fulfills His Dream of Being a Pro Wrestler on 'CMT Made' Premiere (VIDEO)

Chris Guerra, 'CMT Made'CMT is bringing MTV's 'Made' experience to the adult world with -- what else? -- 'CMT Made' (Wed., 10PM ET on CMT). First up is police officer Chris Guerra, who is a huge fan of professional wrestling. It's a dream he never got a chance to fulfill, but the message of this show is that it's never too late.

Guerra put in the work, too, training hard and taking quite a beating. Pro wrestling may be fake in some regards, but the hard work and training that goes into making it look so slick on-screen is very real, and Guerra had the bruises to prove it.

And he picked up the skills pretty well, putting on a solid performance in front of rowdy wrestling fans and his proud family. Guerra may not have fulfilled his dreams of being a pro wrestler for a career, but at least he now knows that with hard work and dedication, it's never too late to get a taste of that dream.

Brooke Jeter gets Whiskey ready to leave on 'Texas Women'As a professional barrel racer, Brooke Jeter has to know her horses well, to be able to read every movement or hesitation. So when her new horse Whiskey wasn't moving with her the way he should on 'Texas Women' (Thursdays, 10PM on CMT), she knew there was a problem. Unfortunately for both of them, it turned out to be a problem that would keep Whiskey off the track for a while.

"So Whiskey did not do as well as I thought he was going to," she said after putting him through a test run. Whiskey wasn't pulling with her on the turns and reacting smoothly to her commands. "I thought to myself, something's not right, and that's what I was thinking the rest of my run, something's still not right," she said.

Sweet Home AlabamaThe trouble with Tribble is (sorry, 'Star Trek' fans!) he's not too good at keeping his opinions to himself. That became more apparent than ever on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thurs., 9PM ET on CMT) this week, when the country hunk told Jason just what he thought of him.

"I think you're fake -- a lot of things you do are fake," Tribble told the city guy, after the other country boys decided to make a pact to stick together.

Michael Fails to Impress With an Original Song on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (VIDEO)

'Sweet Home Alabama'Perhaps to help her understand their more urban roots on 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT), three of the "city" bachelors got to treat country girl Devin Grissom to a New York experience on a day trip.

While Pete Westwood took her onto the streets and treated her to a sidewalk hot dog, which is an authentic New York experience, Michael Chadwick opened up a little and showed her his musical side. He told Grisson that she'd inspired him to write for the first time in six years.

"When Michael sings to me, I don't know whether I should laugh or kind of cheer him on," Grissom lamented. He proved himself quite adept at lifting phrases from popular songs and rearranging them awkwardly to suit his needs.

The guys argue about respect on 'Sweet Home Alabama'Take 'The Bachelor,' add ten interchangeable homunculi from the city and ten from the country, and make them compete for one single woman from Alabama, and you have CMT's 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thursdays, 10PM on CMT). There is little solidarity among the suitors, but most of the contestants on the show seem to agree that they don't like Michael "Flex" Dean.

Most of the guys believe Flex shows them disrespect. "Nothing means more down here than respect, and when you disrespect somebody, that's what gets us fired up," said Adam Moyer (the one with the hat). Flex, in turn, feels that the rest of the guys disrespect him. "Every day, you challenge me. Every day," said Flex. "That is disrespect, to me."

After Jeff started snapping at Tribble and some of the other guys over what and how to cook, Tribble grabbed a fire extinguisher because Jeff was putting smoke chips on an inside grill.

"Maybe it's a new flavor I created," Jeff snapped when it was brought up. "You ever think about that?"

A Playful Hit Leads to a Real Fight on the Series Premiere of 'Texas Women' (VIDEO)

'Texas Women' series premiereYou hate to stereotype someone who's a "trust fund baby," as Hannah is described on the official 'Texas Women' (Thu., 10PM ET on CMT) web page, but you could see that arrogant sense of self-importance in her when she was dealing with her roommate Anna.

In a moment that seemed light and fun enough to us, she and Anna were spatting at a bar, when Anna playfully smacked Hannah on the head with a cocktail menu. And that was it. Suddenly Hannah wasn't having fun anymore. It took Anna a bit to realize Hannah was serious.

We will agree that wagging your finger in someone's face is a bit much, but Hannah saw everything Anna was doing as "disrespectful" and ultimately "degrading." When Anna explained that "life is getting thumped in the forehead," Hannah's reply was, "Then you punch me in the shoulder [and] I'm gonna come right back at your nose."

'Sweet Home Alabama' series premiereCMT is dipping their toes into 'The Bachelorette' format with their new eight-part reality series 'Sweet Home Alabama' (Thu., 9PM ET on CMT). In it, Southern Belle Devin Grissom seeks love among 20 bachelors, 10 of them country boys and 10 of them city slickers. And one of the latter guys might be familiar to hardcore 'Jersey Shore' fans.

Grissom was definitely intrigued by Jeff Miranda, but even more surprised when he told her everybody knew him back home in New Jersey. When she asked how, he replied, "I dated Snooki from 'Jersey Shore' and I was on the show."

That response certainly took her back a step. "I am very different from Snooki. So I mean if that's his type then maybe I'm not."

Justin Bieber & Rascal Flatts, 'CMT Music Awards 2011'Even when Justin Bieber isn't quite sure where he's at, people still love him and want to give him awards. Take the 'CMT Music Awards 2011' (Wed., 8PM ET on CMT) for instance. They awarded Bieber Collaborative Video of the Year for his song 'That Should Be Me,' featuring Rascal Flatts.

Only Bieber said, "I just want to say how honored I am to be here at the Country Music Awards with Rascal Flatts." See, that's an entirely different awards show.

But Bieber is new to the country music scene, so we'll let it slide. He was otherwise very gracious in accepting the award, though he neglected to give us a hint as to where he's headed for his next award. It can be like a game of 'Where's Waldo?' at all the awards show. See if you can spot Bieber, and then see if he knows which awards show he's winning at.
