C'mon...you know you feel the same way.
I don't think that's the right answer.
Talia Lavin may not have won Jeopardy!, but she did become Internet famous. On a recent episode of Jeopardy!, the Final Jeopardy! category was Oscar-Nominated Songs. The clue was "This song from a 1999 animated film about censorship had a word censored from its Oscar performance."
And here was her answer....
She made Alex Trebek say "Turd Ferguson"!
Why Turd Ferguson you ask? Remember this Saturday Night Live skit....
And just in case you were wondering, the correct answer was "Blame Canada" from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.
Season 21 of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC to my extreme delight! I rarely get this excited when it comes to television shows, especially reality ones, but #DWTS just makes me so happy! Let's get right to the good stuff....I had a hard time deciding which dance I liked the best, but so far my favorites are at the top of the leader board and I even have a surprise pick.
Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough are tied at the top of the leader board with a 24/30 for this Jive. They are going to be one of my favorite couples all season long.
Also tied at the top of leader board are Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess with a 24/30 for this Cha Cha. Another one of my favorites.
But the surprise dance of the night goes to Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold's Foxtrot which got a 22/30. Even the judges were surprised! This guy is a contender for the finals.
It's the best part about Mondays for me. Dancing With The Stars airs on ABC at 7 p.m.
