When even Steve Harvey is telling you to “shut up,” it is time to admit that you don’t know crap about zombies. Where is this “Family Feud” contestant getting her zombie information from? Didn’t she read World War Z? Or watch “The Walking Dead”? THEY’RE UNDEAD, lady. THEY’RE UNDEAD. [YouTube]
This morning, I was delighted to find out that “Baggage,” a show referenced on last night’s episode of “Girls” which I assumed to be fake because it sounds so amazingly ridiculous, is, in fact, A REAL THING. Here’s how the Jerry Springer-hosted show works, according to Wikipedia:
“Baggage” gives three contestants the chance to win the eye of a prospective date. The contestants carry three suitcases onstage, a small, medium, and large one. Each suitcase contains an embarrassing, unique, or weird proposition the contestant may have; for example, bad habits (e.g. “I share a bed with my grandmother”), strange relationship preferences (“My partner must dress up as Santa Claus”), issues with one’s past (“I’m an outlaw in Mexico”), and strange hobbies (“I play video games 30 hours a week”). These cases will represent the “baggage” to which they will confess and defend. The bigger the suitcase, the bigger the secret or “baggage” is. Once the three contestants are pared down to one, the potential dater must admit to a fault of his or her own.
Naturally, I have spent the last three hours watching it on GSN’s YouTube channel and it is as delightfully trashy as Shoshanna and Wikipedia described. Here are 10 things I’ve learned (so far!) from watching it… Keep reading »
Our new favorite “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” contestant is Joann Chen, from Brooklyn. She’s pretty good at answering questions, but she’s even better at adding in strange and bewildering side commentary. For instance, a question about the use of “styptic pencils” elicited the following comment from Joann: “I wore pants today for a reason. I’m pretty sloppy in the shower.” Watch the clip to get the full story. Great Marley’s ghost! [Buzzfeed]
Watch as fashion editor Caitlin Burke solves a puzzle on “Wheel of Fortune” with almost zero clues. “Is it just me or was that the most amazing solve we’ve ever had?” says a bewildered Pat Sajak. And trust us, that guy has seen everything.

Sigh. We get it. Kellie Pickler, the American Idol contestant famous for not knowing what salmon is (and who also sings the annoyingly catchy tune “Red High Heels”), is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. But is anyone else peeved that Jeff “You Know You’re A Redneck” Foxworthy uses her idiocy as an excuse to make stereotypical statements about women? Oh, and he also mispronounces “Hungary” which is insane considering he’s the host of Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? Now, who’s the stupid one? [YouTube] Keep reading »
