Poor HSN host Claire! After last night’s premiere of The Amazing Race, we finally know the full story behind this watermelon-to-the-face animated GIF.
I thought it might have been one of the best TAR premieres in history. We’d love to hear your thoughts over at The Amazing Race fan group at the social club (sign-up is free and takes less than a minute).

!! OMG, I Hope it Was Tasty: Woman picks nose and eats it on local newscast !!


I almost didn’t post this, because, come on, who hasn’t had nightmares about chowing down on a delicious boog only to remember that you’re on teevee?! But then I remembered that my journalistic ethics dictate that I bring you, my readers, the important news of the day. Newsworthiness trumps feelings of sympathy. Sorry, lady who sits behind Dorothy Tucker’s desk!

!! OMG, How Reasonable: Non-homophobe Survivor Shannon Elkins just “protecting his butthole” from suspected gay castaway !!


Public Service Announcement guys: the new edition of Survivor, stationed in Nicaragua, is pretty good! This comes from a seasoned Survivor connoisseur– a little-known fact about me is that my earliest posts for OMG Blog were a handful of Survivor recaps way back in 2003.
Anyway, CBS clearly fired their on-set psychologist this time around, because the new batch of Survivors is even more completely batshit crazy than usual. Among the most insane is weirdly hunky but still kinda busted Shannon Elkins (that’s a boy, by the way), whose musclebound and saucer-nippled presence graced our screen for a mere two episodes before a bizarre, homophobic tirade led to his ouster last week.
During the explosive “Tribal Council,” Elkins call out his professedly heterosexual teammate, asking him out of nowhere, “Are you gay?” before pointing out helpfully that “there are a lot more gay people in New York than in Louisiana.” This then to an annoying debate over which of the men have slept with a greater number of beautiful women. (ZZZzzzs!) In a Survivor rarity, Shannon’s flag-waving douchiness led to his ouster.
Well, now back at home licking his wounds and trying to prolong his fifteen minutes of fame, Shannon is highly offended that anyone would consider his comments to be homophobic!

I’m not a homophobe and I’m not a sexist. … As far as the gay bashing, I didn’t bash any gays. I didn’t say, ‘I hate gays.’ I didn’t say, ‘Gays are stupid.’ I stereotype, my brother. It’s like the show ‘Waterboy,’ people think we [people in Louisiana] ride airboats to work, we have no teeth, and we wrestle alligators for a living. Well people from Louisiana think people from New York are either in the mob or gay. I stereotype like everybody else stereotypes. … I was concerned that he was gay and I was protecting my butthole. … I don’t have to ask Sash if he’s gay. Look at the kid, he’s gay. He kept on and on telling me I was a liar. He should have kept his mouth shut and he wouldn’t have been called out in front of America.

Hey Shannon– here’s a tip. If you’re concerned about protecting your butthole, maybe you should worry less about the suspected gays in your midst and more about putting on some pants.
