"...And put on your dancing shoes," Robach laughed. 

Lochte won’t be the only Olympian on the dance floor.  Gold medal-winning gymnast Laurie Hernandez is also joining the cast.

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- The Bachelor in Paradise love triangle between Jared Haibon, Caila Quinn and Ashley Iaconetti came to a head on Monday when Caila told Ashley she wanted to go home.

Ashley, tired of seeing Jared and Caila together, immediately set her sights on the newest addition to Paradise – Wells Adams, from JoJo’s season. Ashley’s prayers were answered when Wells asked her out on a date.

During their date in the city, Ashley told him she was happy he was there and revealed to the camera that she might even like him more than Jared. Wells said he also was “really excited” and punctuates the conversation with a long kiss.

The pair sent candle-lit lanterns into the night sky which, if they rose without bursting into flames, were said to make wishes come true. Theirs floated without igniting – or so they think – but as the camera lingers, the lantern goes up in a puff of smoke.

Back at the house, tempers flared between Lace Morris and Grant Kemp when Lace started flirting with some of the other guys, causing Grant to storm off. Later he argued that Lace disrespected him, while she insisted she did nothing wrong. Unwilling to put up with his petty behavior, she told him, “Good luck finding love with someone else.” Later, she tells the other ladies she was thinking of going home.

Grant tried to convince Lace not to leave declaring that he loved her. She was unmoved. He explained that he knows she acts the way she does because she’s scared. By the end of the night, they apologized and were shown making out.

Meanwhile, after promising Josh Murray that she would sleep with him in the sex room, Amanda Stanton told Nick Viall and Jen Saviano that they could have the room because she intended to sleep in her own bed. Josh stopped them because he and Amanda were sleeping there. Josh argued with Amanda as the two had a “good talk.”

Then it was another rose ceremony, with the women in power. Beforehand, Evan Bass revealed to Carly Wadell that he’s falling in love with her, and she says the feeling is mutual.

Daniel Maguire used the pre-ceremony cocktail party to secure a rose from Isabel “Izzy” Goodkind by giving her a bigger and better lamp in an attempt to one-up Brett Melnick  but he told her she can only keep it if she gives him a rose.

At the rose ceremony, Carly gave her rose to Evan; Ashley gave her rose to Wells; Jen gave her rose to Nick; Izzy gave her rose to Brett; Caila gave hers to Jared; Lace gave her rose to Grant and Amanda gave her rose to Josh.

When it was Haley Furguson’s turn, she called her twin sister Emily up and shocked the room by announcing that they were leaving Paradise. That left Brian Osborne, Carl King and Daniel without roses and therefore sent home.

Before they left the house, the twins warned Amanda about Josh’s intentions. Amanda confronted Josh. He assured her that his intentions are good. Josh went back to the house and challenged the others to tell him he’s not genuine to his face. Nick stepped up.

A fight ensues when Josh accused Nick of trying to sabotage his relationship with Amanda because she rejected Nick.

Furious, Josh threatened to leave. Amanda told the other ladies that she’d heard from several people about Josh and can’t ignore that. Josh asked Amanda to leave with him so they could continue their relationship away from the others. She ultimately convinced him to stay.

There was more trouble in Paradise as another newcomer -- Jamie Otis from Ben’s season -- showed up with a date card. Wells was the only one around, so she asked him and he accepted. Nick and Jen broke the news to Ashley, who -- to everyone’s amazement -- appeared to handle it well.

Jamie and Wells went on a date to get down and dirty on an off-road adventure through Mexico.

Ashley still hasn’t let go of her feelings for Jared and confronted Caila, who decided Paradise wasn’t big enough for the both of them. As the show ended, we were left to wonder, whether Caila will stay or go home.

Charles Sykes/BravoAlison Brie, formerly of NBC's Community, is stepping into the ring as an unlikely female wrestler in Netflix's upcoming comedy G.L.O.W., ABC News has confirmed.

Brie, who also voices multiple characters on Netflix's animated series Bojack Horseman, will reportedly play Ruth, an out-of-work actress who ends up taking a gig as a female pro wrestler in an attempt to keep her on-camera career alive.

Gene Wilder in 1987; George Rose/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Gene Wilder, the comic actor and writer famous for movies like The Producers, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, died Monday at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. He was 83.

Wilder's death was confirmed in a statement to ABC News by his nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, who said the cause of death was "Alzheimer’s Disease with which he co-existed for the last three years," adding, "The choice to keep this private was his choice."

The statement continues: "The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him 'there’s Willy Wonka,' would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and causing delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion. He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world."

Wilder also had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1989.

Wilder was one of Mel Brooks' favorite leading men, appearing in Young Frankenstein, which he co-wrote with Brooks, The Producers and Blazing Saddles, but he also found box office success teamed with Richard Pryor for a series of films including Silver Streak and Stir Crazy.  Wilder was nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Producers, and for co-writing Young Frankenstein with Brooks.

Wilder's most iconic role, though, is arguably that of Willy Wonka, the chocolate factory owner who searches for a child to take over his business in 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  While not a huge hit upon its initial release, it's since become a classic. 

According to Variety, Wilder's most successful roles featured him playing characters with "a signature mixture of hysteria and sweetness."

"[Mel Brooks] always thought that I was a perfect victim, I was a sheep and the wolves could come and get me," Wilder once told ABC News Radio.  "I've changed a little bit since then, but he was right about that time, when I was doing The Producers.  By Young Frankenstein, I wasn't the sheep anymore.  A little bit, but not much."

Wilder married Saturday Night Live star and comic actress Gilda Radner in 1982.  She was his third wife. They co-starred in two films, The Woman in Red and Haunted Honeymoon. After Radner died in 1989 from ovarian cancer, a devastated Wilder worked very little afterward.  He co-founded Gilda's Club, an organization that offers support for cancer patients, their families and friends.

In the '90s, Wilder appeared in feature films, a failed TV series, and wrote and starred in mystery movies for A&E.  He won an Emmy for his final acting role: a guest stint in Will and Grace from 2002 to 2003.

Wilder was also an author, publishing two novels, two novellas and a collection of stories.

He's survived by his fourth wife, Karen, and his nephew.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Ben Affleck, who is the current occupant of Batman's suit -- and who is directing the next solo Batman film -- has teased comic fans with a snippet of what's to come.

On his Twitter feed Monday morning, Affleck posted footage of a fearsome figure clad in black and orange armor: fan favorite Deathstroke, a deadly mercenary who has tangled with the Caped Crusader a few times since making his DC Comics debut in 1980. 

The character, whose real name is Slade Wilson, has also appeared frequently in video games, and on the small screen, in Arrow.

And a piece of comic trivia: Marvel's Deadpool began as a spoof of Deathstroke: Ryan Reynolds' onscreen alter-ego is also a mercenary possessing superhuman power and amazing fighting skills ... whose real name is the similarly-sounding Wade Wilson.

The Wrap is claiming Deathstroke will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman project from the Oscar nominated Argo director -- though that doesn't rule out Wilson making some prior appearance in Batman's superhero team-up movie Justice League in November of 2017.

Art Zelin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- For the ninth time since his incarceration for the December 8, 1980 murder of musician and former Beatles member John Lennon, Mark David Chapman has been denied parole.

The New York State Board of Parole announced its decision on Monday following an interview this past Wednesday with the 61-year-old Chapman, held at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York.

The board members noted in their decision, "In spite of many favorable factors, we find all to be outweighed by the premeditated and celebrity-seeking nature of the crime. From our interview and review of your records, we find that your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate that seriousness of the crime as to undermine respect for the law. Accordingly, we deny your release to supervision in the community."

The parole board also explained that in denying Chapman's request, it considered such factors as his efforts to rehabilitate and educate himself, his disciplinary record, his accomplishments while incarcerated, and his lack of prior criminal history.

Chapman was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life for Lennon's murder and was first eligible for parole on December 4, 2000.  His next parole hearing is scheduled for August 2018.

Karwai Tang/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Hollywood hot couple Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender rarely talk about their two-year romance, but they're finally opening up, sharing why they prefer to keep mum about their love.

The actress told Entertainment Weekly, "I think we’ve made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us. It was very easy to unite, but that's quite personal."

Fassbender, 39, who is starring alongside his girlfriend in their new film The Light Between Oceans, out September 2, also explained how they've become such a private couple while staying in Hollywood's spotlight.

"I'm not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger, unless I feel like I need to," he said. "Why would I? I don't."

The actor understands why the media and public are hungry for more information. He can personally relate.

"I might have been curious about actors' lives when I was growing up. That's human nature," he admitted. "We're all curious about a lot of things. But my curiosity didn't obligate them to tell me.

"It's the worst thing if you're sitting there in the theater, going, 'Oh, that's the guy who dates this person and likes to do this in the morning and that in the afternoon.' Then you're just watching a brand, as opposed to an actor," Fassbender added.

Vikander, 27, said she simply prefers to "know less about the actors I look up to."

"That's what I mean -- I love the mystery behind it all," she said.

Chris Hemsworth greets a young fan while filming “Thor: Ragnarok” in Australia; Glenn Hunt/Fairfax Media via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Thor was missing in action in this year's Marvel blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. So what was the hammer-wielding hero up to while Iron Man and Captain America were clashing with one another? He was just hanging out in Australia.

Marvel has released a mockumentary that shows how Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, was spending his time during the events depicted in Civil War.

"I guess I'm just taking a break," Thor says at the start of the video, which premiered at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer and was posted online by Marvel over the weekend. "…I needed some 'me' time."

Thor explains that he went to Australia and moved in with a guy named Darryl, who appears to be uncomfortable around his new friend.

The clip includes an appearance by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, who gets a call from Tony Stark asking him to join Team Iron Man. Thor is visibly jealous that Stark didn't reach out to him, too.

The mockumentary was directed by Taika Waititi, who is directing the third Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok. It will be included as a bonus with the digital version of Captain America: Civil War, out September 2.

Hemsworth, Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett and Jeff Goldblum will star in Thor: Ragnarok, which opens in November of 2017.

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Stephen Lang in “Don’t Breathe”; image courtesy Screen Gems/Sony(NEW YORK) -- Don't Breathe was a breath of fresh air at the box office this weekend.

The horror film ended Suicide Squad's three-week run in the top spot, earning an estimated 26.1 million dollars in its first three days of release.

Don't Breathe follows three people who attempt to rob a blind war veteran, but things don't go according to plan for them.

Suicide Squad slipped to second place after collecting 12.1 million dollars. The DC supervillain film has now made 282.9 million dollars at the domestic box office to date.

The Jason Statham action sequel Mechanic: Resurrection debuted in fifth place, raising 7.5 million dollars.

Southside with You, inspired by President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama's first date, and the biopic Hands of Stone, focusing on boxing legend Roberto Duran, both finished outside the top 10 after opening in just over 800 theaters.

Larry Busacca/Getty Images for MTV(NEW YORK) -- Leave it to Kanye West to provide the highlight of the night at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, held Sunday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

He commanded the mic for what sounded like a stream-of-consciousness speech that touched upon numerous subjects, ranging from his "Famous" video to Taylor Swift to his perceived all-around greatness.

After walking onto the stage to chants of "Yeezy," the rapper declared, "I am Kanye West, and that feels really great to say, especially this year."

In a nod to the infamous VMAs moment when he interrupted Taylor, Kanye joked, "Now later tonight 'Famous' might lose to Beyoncé but I can't be mad, I'm always wishing for Beyoncé to win."

He then let loose with his thoughts, name-checking his former girlfriend, Amber Rose, who was in attendance, and one of his wife Kim Kardashian West's exes while addressing his "Famous" video, which featured naked lookalikes of celebrities in bed.

"It was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV, you know, the audacity to put Anna Wintour right next to Donald Trump. I put Ray J in it, bro," he said, as Kardashian West laughed in the crowd.

"If you think about last week it was 22 people murdered in Chicago," the rapper said. "You know, people come up to me like, 'Man, that's right! Take, tell Taylor this. Bro, like I love all y'all. That's why I called her," alluding to the infamous phone call between the two that Kardashian West released.

Moments later, Kanye mentioned that his role models are "artists" and "merchants," then proceeded to name them: "Truman, Ford, Hughes, Disney, Jobs, West."

All of this was a prelude to Kanye unveiling his new music video for "Fade," starring Teyana Taylor, who dances around exercise equipment before developing cat-like features while joined by fiancé Iman Shumpert.

Beyoncé was the shining star of the VMAs, though. She was the top winner, taking eight awards, including Video of the Year for "Formation."

In accepting Video of the Year, she made sure to thank her "beautiful daughter" and "incredible husband," Blue Ivy and Jay Z, for their support, before dedicating the prize to the people of New Orleans.  

Earlier in the night, Bey ruled the stage for 15 minutes for a dramatic and sexy medley of songs from Lemonade, including "Hold Up," which won the award for Best Female Video.

That honor was presented to her by the Final Five women's gymnastics team -- minus Gabby Douglas, who was hospitalized with a mouth infection.

Per Billboard, Beyoncé now holds the record for most career Moonmen wins with 24, surpassing Madonna's 20.

Britney Spears, who's had her share of famous VMAs moments herself, took a break from her Las Vegas show to grace the MSG stage in a mostly yellow sparkling outfit. She performed her new tune "Make Me…" with G-Eazy.

The broadcast began with a performance by Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient Rihanna. Pretty in pink, she ran through several of her hits, like "Only Girl (In The World)," "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been."

The performance continued throughout the night, with Ri-Ri periodically returning to the stage to sing "What's My Name?," "Work," "Pour It Up," "B**** Better Have My Money," "Stay," "Diamonds" and "Love on the Brain."

Rihanna's night was capped by her rumored love interest Drake -- who'd already congratulated her with a Los Angeles billboard -- presenting her the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

"She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old. She is one of my best friends in the world," he shared, before giving her the award -- and what looked like a kiss on the cheek.

Future's performance was introduced by Olympic gold-medal-winning swimmer Michael Phelps, who revealed that he was listening to the rapper's "Stick Talk" when he made the angry #Phelpsface that went viral during the Rio Games.

Future then delivered a live version of "F*** Up Some Commas."

Phelps seemed to get a big kick out of presenter Jimmy Fallon being dressed as Phelps' disgraced teammate Ryan Lochte later in the broadcast, taking photos with his smartphone of the late-night host. Fallon, making light of Lochte's "over-exaggerated" robbery tale in Rio, told all sorts of lies, joking, for example, that he taught Drake the "Hotline Bling."

Ariana Grande was joined by Nicki Minaj for a workout-themed rendition of "Side to Side," with Ariana demonstrating she can sing and pedal an exercise bike at the same time.

Nick Jonas sang "Bacon" inside a diner where various guests like Joe Jonas and Joe's band, Best New Artist winner DNCE, were sitting at tables. He eventually brought the performance to the street with the help of collaborator Ty Dolla $ign.

The Chainsmokers and Halsey came together for a live version of their hit "Closer."

Alicia Keys was a presenter, but she performed in her own way while honoring the 53-year anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech by reciting a poem.

"If war is holy and sex is obscene, then we got it twisted in this lucid dream," she said.

Following the poem, she sang a cappella.

The VMAs did not have a host this year. Instead, various entertainers were enlisted to cover the show.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele offered play-by-play commentary as the characters @TheShamester and @LizardSheeple. DJ Khaled, recent Saturday Night Live star Jay Pharoah and comedienne Nicole Byer also took part in the coverage.

Prior to the VMAs ceremony, MTV aired an hour-long preshow with performances by Lukas Graham, Alessia Cara, Troye Sivan and Jidenna.

MTV(NEW YORK) -- The MTV Video Music Awards have given us plenty of controversial moments over the years, but this year, show organizers hope that in addition to the usual wardrobe malfunctions and onstage feuds, the stars will throw politics into the mix.

"By all means, in a political year, we’re counting on artists to take this moment and address young America and give them some point of view of what’s going on in the world," says MTV executive Erik Flannigan.  But of course, he admits they're also counting on big musical moments, like one from performer Britney Spears.

"I think she knows what her history is," Flannigan tells ABC Radio. "She’s walking into the building knowing what she’s done on this show before. So, just as [important as] it is for us to top ourselves, I know it is for her [too]."  Flannigan says Britney's performance of her latest hit "Make Me" will be "unprecedented."

Pop and R&B star Rihanna will take home the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award tonight.  Flannigan says, "We’re gonna see a lot of different Rihanna looks -- not just visually but musically. And the way you see it appear through the show is gonna be a little bit different, too."

This year, for the first time, the VMAs are being held at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"The moment you’re inside Madison Square Garden, you’re at a different level," Flannigan says. "So in some ways, I think this is a show that leans into the history of the building...we’re gonna take advantage of every single inch of it."

Flannigan's also excited that U.S. Women's Gymnastic Team members, as well as gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps, will be on hand as presenters.  "I think they’re gonna be the ones who everyone wants to take a picture with," Flannigan laughs. "Celebrities included!" 

The MTV VMAs air at 9 p.m. ET tonight.

FOX(NEW YORK) -- One story line in The Simpsons' upcoming season will be ripped from the Donald Trump headlines.

Executive producer Al Jean reveals to TVLine that one of the episodes coming up for season 28 will contain a not-so-subtle reference to Trump University, currently the subject of multiple lawsuits alleging fraud.

In the episode, Jean explains, financial guru Suze Orman, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and writing instructor Robert McKee are educators at a school launched by the wealthy Mr. Burns.

“We have a great episode where Burns goes to Yale and discovers, much to his horror, how politically correct it is,” Jean shares with TVLine. “So he starts his own college, Burns University, which is similar to another billionaire’s university you might have heard of lately.”

The report doesn't say when the episode will air.

The Simpsons poked fun at the Republican presidential nominee last month in an online video that featured animated versions of him and of his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
