I enjoyed it!" Awww! Nonetheless, Rachel wasn't just all about Bryan as DeMario also caught the reality TV vet's eye. Despite being warned that the executive recruiter was there for the wrong reasons, Rachel took a liking to him as she enjoyed how he took control of their conversation. Still, it was Bryan who walked away with the first impression rose. The Rose Ceremony Speaking of roses... Bryce, Josiah, and DeMario joined Bryan as frontrunners as they all received their flowers first during the evening's rose ceremony. And it looks like Rachel is in to gimmicks as the kinkster (Blake E.), the Whaboom (Lucas), and the puppet guy (Adam) all got roses too. A bunch of other guys got roses as well, but it might be easier to just tell you who went home. Sadly, Rachel couldn't keep all the men in the mansion as she said goodbye to Rob , Kyle , Blake K. , Grant , Jedidiah , Michael , Milton , and Mohit. Whomp, whomp. What do YOU think? Did Rachel keep the right beaus?? SOUND OFF in the comments ( below )!

Tuesday marks the first time member states will actually get to choose between several finalists. In the past, the executive committee presented them with a single candidate to accept and applaud. - Behind closed doors - The process will begin at 2:00 pm (1200 GMT) with each candidate addressing the WHO's main annual assembly in Geneva. After that, delegates will cast their ballots behind closed doors. If no candidate is elected outright, which requires at least two-thirds of votes, a simple majority will decide between the two frontrunners. All three have vowed to push ahead with a broad overhaul of the WHO. WHO has already initiated a range of reforms since it faced crushing criticism for its slow response to the west Africa Ebola epidemic that killed more than 11,300 people between late 2013 through early 2016. Chan, a Hong Kong physician who took the reins of the organisation in 2007, acknowledged Monday it had been slow to react to the Ebola disaster.

The second leg of this year's Triple Crown will get underway on Saturday as the Preakness Stakes makes its way back to Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, with Always Dreaming in the hunt to build on his win at the 2017 Kentucky Derby. The heavier conditions at Churchill Downs played directly into the hands of trainer Todd Pletcher's favourite, but some among the Preakness field may fancy this Saturday's showdown as a prime opportunity to stage a surprise. The odds-on frontrunners have held an imperious record in the Kentucky Derby over recent years, but the tighter twists of Pimlico could set the stage for a horse more well-suited to its setting. What's more, Scott Dance of the Baltimore Sun recently reported "warm" and "dry" conditions are expected for the 142nd edition of the Preakness Stakes, which lies in contrast to the Triple Crown opener at Churchill Downs.

As voters prepare to go to the polls this week, we look at the two frontrunners and examine what is at stake for the country Iran goes to the polls on 19 May in the country’s first presidential elections since the landmark nuclear agreement in 2015 , when Tehran agreed to roll back its nuclear programme in exchange for the removal of sanctions. The fate of that deal has been thrown in doubt since Donald Trump took the helm at the White House, but despite his increasingly belligerent rhetoric, the US president has so far not taken any serious steps to scrap the accord.

In the first hour alone, they covered an impressive 54.6km and for a short time Conti, just over two minutes in arrears overnight, was in the virtual race lead. But with a prestigious stage victory up for grabs, they were in for a frantic finale after several teams took turns at the front of the chasing peloton. By the time the four frontrunners hit the foot of the 1.5km punt to the uphill finish line, their lead had dropped to just 33secs -- and the peloton was closing in fast. Conti had spent considerable time pulling the escape as he targeted the coveted pink jersey but crashed on a hairpin bend leading to the home straight. Izagirre was just behind, but, unlike Visconti and Sanchez, he avoided having to brake to avoid the Italian. That allowed the Basque rider to take the bull by the horns and power to victory. The peloton crossed the line just 12 seconds later, Jungels one of several riders left battered by a tough day of bike racing.
