Well the Bachelor 2010 has ofically wrapped up, who did Jake Pavelka choose? Non other than Vienna Girardi and now all that is left is to tie the knot. Honestly, this show isn’t for the ninja, the tackiness of it is almost too much for TV. And the fact that Jake Pavelka family had to make an appearance on the show to help him “decide” on the right bride is sort of sick. Yes, you’ve read correctly, it turned the ninja’s stomach just a little at the thought. Isn’t it up to Mr. Bachelor to make the choice, this is the person he is going to be spending “the rest of his life” with. Or is she more like a new car, maybe it is better to have your friends and family come and give her a test drive before you can make your decision. What more can you ask for in relaity TV? Was the 2010 Bachelor finale worth getting excited for? I don’t know any one that did. RTV is pretty much the bottom of the barrels as far as the ninja is concerned. It is cheap to produce and it draws far more viewers than normal television shows. It is pretty much a bankable bet for the producers and if it is really popular… Well, they can sell the rights internationally. No American Idol wasn’t created here in the U.S. it was imported from Britian. Yay! Will Jake Pavelka and his “true love” Vienna Girardi stay together? Does any one really care?
If you know who Howard Stern is you know he isn’t ready for prime time, let alone as the host of the popular TV show American Idol. But guess what, he may just be replacing Simon Cowell. While the ninja can see this, both Cowell and Stern have a way with words, still it may be a trade off CBS isn’t able to handle. Especially if they were to put him in the Morning Show. As we have come to expect from Howard Stern he is adding fuel to the fire with by insulting everyone connected to the “karaoke show” as he calls it. The main targets of Howard’s tongue are Simon, Ellen and Ryan Seacrest. The most resistance is coming from Ellen, who feels his “being considered” to replace Simon as a judge is a poor choice. Actually, it is much more than that. “Ellen is not in favor” of im joining the show at all. But does she really have that much to say? Ellen DeGeneres is making her American Idol debut tonight, which means if Howard Stern takes the role on the early show she won’t have much more seniority. Apparently Ellen is taking the show more seriously than either the current loud mouth host and his possible replacement Howard Stern. She is a very organized person, and with the large amount of hosting duties she has on her plate things had to be moved around. When she got to the Hollywood set for the first day’s filming she was left waiting. Simon was nowhere to be seen and he eventually came in late. Will Howard do any better, probably not but the outcome would probably be much different. So we can be sure than at least one person out there doesn’t want Howard Stern to jump into prime time TV and take on the role of judge. What do you think? The ninja doesn’t really care, he doesn’t watch the show and whoever takes the vacancy is fairly irelavent. The only reason people watch the show is to enjoy some really bad singing.
I know what you’re asking yourself right now as you’re reading this, “What is bone black?” Well besides an amazingly sweet title for this post it is also the 29th episode of Dirty JobsSeason 5. While working at the Bone Black Plant’s Ball Mill, Mike Rowe has to climb into the Ball Mill when he losses his flashlight. When he emerges he is so dirty, almost pitch black that his teeth and eyes almost shine. You can watch the the Bone Black segment of Dirty Jobs here: The episode aired last night at 9 p.m. On Discovery.
If you watched the Super Bowl you may have caught the Dockers’ Super Bowl ad. If not, you may still be able to snag yourself a pair of Dockers Khaki. Here is what it boils down to. The 30-second ad showed me marching around singing, the song goes like this… “I wear no pants”. While the lyrics aren’t the most amazing it was one of the funnier ads shown during Super Bowl XLIV. And if you were lucky few you won a pair of Dockers pants. For those of you who missed the commercial you can watch it in it’s entirety here. And with entirety I mean the full 30-second spot. If you are feeling left out there is the always the option to sign up and snag a pair of free pants on the Dockers’ website:dockers.com/freepants
