Video: Finals Week Throwdown!

Watch Video
Lack of sleep and stress aren’t the best combination, especially during finals week. Feel free to cringe in virtual awkwardness as you watch two girls go at it over talking in the library! There’s nothing worse then having a loud group of friends jabbering while your trying focus…though having your reaction to said group filmed just might be. Regardless, I hope her studying paid off! Ah, college. (Tear!) [Buzzfeed]

A Video Tribute: André Leon Talley’s Best Moments On “Top Model”

After four cycles, 45 judging panels, 54 different contestants, and many of his beautiful, signature capes, André Leon Talley bids farewell to theAmerica’s Next Top Model judging panel. Wednesday night’s cycle 17 finale, was his final episode (next season, Kelly Cutrone will take his seat). His addition to the panel last year for cycle 14 was heralded as a new, high-fashion direction for the show. …

Along with serious fashion credentials, Talley brought sass, made-up words, and a fascinating dynamic with Tyra to each episode. He also, of course, wore great hats, chunky jewelry, and disdainful expressions where needed; he once even waved a cane faux-threateningly, which was wonderful. See a video compilation of ALT’s best moments on the show in this video…

The Parents Television Council (PTC) isn’t set to release the report, “Reality of MTV: Gender Portrayals on Reality TV,” until this Wednesday, but Fox News got a sneak peak in advance and has summarized the findings. (Jezebel accurately commented that their report provides an early view of the study through “an additional layer of puritanical hysteria.”) The PTC studied one season each of the top four prime-time shows viewed by 12- to 17-year-old adolescents – ”Jersey Shore,” “16 and Pregnant,” “Teen Mom 2,” and “The Real World” – and collected a bounty of not so surprising statistics. Most prominently, it the report found that the majority of crude or negative remarks came from female cast members. Only 24 percent of the comments made by females in regards to themselves were positive, and women spoke about sex more frequently and graphically than males. Keep reading »

Who do you think knows more about pop culture — Chevy Chase or Joel McHale? Find out by watching this special pop culture quiz, in which two teams made up of the cast of “Community” attempt to answer rather difficult pop culture questions.

It’s team Karate Dog vs. The Hilarious Hive on Jive Featuring Eldrige Cleaver (hey, their name not ours) in an all-out battle. [NYMag.com]

Silly Giraffe Gets Herself Stuck in Pool

Watch Video

While filming the Brit TV show “Wild at Heart,” Lucy the pregnant giraffe, who stars in the series, broke into the pool area and got in, but wasn’t able to get out. Crew members drained the pool, and even attempted to get her out by building steps. But when that didn’t work, the staff eventually had to demolish a wall in the pool in order to create an area from which Lucy could hobble out. The bigger they come, the harder it is to get them outta the pool, I guess. [ITV]
