The 19th season of Fox Sports reality show The Ultimate Fighter kicks off tonight with 24-year-old Philly MMA fighter Anton Berzin competing for the top prize. A little background on Berzin on Philly.com:
Food Network’s new reality show, America’s Best Cook, will feature Devon’s Christina Verrelli competing for the title of America’s Best Cook. Verrelli won the 45th Pillsbury Bake-Off’s million-dollar prize in 2012 for her Pumpkin Ravioli with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream (um, yum), and, funny side note, she recently judged a friendly inner-office bake-off we had here at Philly Mag.
In their chat with Marlton, N.J.-bred The Voice hopeful Christina Grimmie, Wet Paint hosts uncover a few little-known, fun facts about the big-voiced chanteuse. Check out the video here to find out which other pop princess she can imitate to a tee, about the array of instruments she can play, and which movie star she’s crushing on.
Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice are up a you-know-what creek after pleading guilty Tuesday to federal fraud charges. Now, each facing several years worth of jail time between them, the couple is expected to ask the judge to let them serve their sentences separately so one of them can be home with the kids. TMZ reports:
Spoiler Alert: This post contains references to several TV and movie surprises, all five years old or more. If you are spoiled by any of them, you need to be a little more current.
Let’s get the bias out of the way up front: I love spoilers.
When I buy a new novel, I often flip right away to the back page. I watched Star Trek II knowing Spock would die, Return of the Jedi knowing Darth was Luke’s father, and Godfather II knowing Fredo was going to get it in the end. Didn’t bother me at all. The last time a movie development caught me genuinely by surprise was when Bruce Willis turned out to be a ghost — and that, probably only because I saw The Sixth Sense on opening night.
Some people may call this a character flaw. I’d rather think of it as knowing how to enjoy the journey instead of the destination.
Gawker has video from the latest episode of Couples Therapy, and it seems that Jon Gosselin’s slide to the dark side is getting grosser than you could’ve imagined. How gross? He apparently gets caught masturbating on camera. So. Pretty gross. “I was just scratching myself,” he says. Too late. Couples Therapy now has a Major Plot Point.
Mady and Cara also used silence as a mode of expression, like a pair of twins plotting together to take down the world solely by their non-verbal twinspeak of squints and winks. When asked about dealing with their parents’ divorce, they looked at each other and laughed. When asked about their siblings, Kate interrupted to tell Mady that this was the question she’s been waiting to answer her whole life, and Mady said evenly, “You ruined my dramatic silence.” It was chilling. Upon being presented with another question Mady said, “Cara would you like me to talk or would you like to talk? OK, I’ll talk. I’m the more talkative one.” Her tone was so measured and emotionless, it was as though she was a child of the corn and by “talkative” she meant “stabby.”
Perhaps they’re sick of being subjected to the reality show lifestyle? Anybody?
