Caite is the final women left in the competition, after Carol & Brandy were sent home after being U-Turned by the Models. Now, four teams remain:

  • 1. Team Cute Bros: Dan & Jordan
  • 2. Team Models: Brent & Caite
  • 3. Team Cowboys: Jet & Cord
  • 4. Team Detectives: Louis & Michael

They start off the episode where the last one ended (two weeks ago): Singapore. This was the 9th pitstop in this season. Now, they’re off to Shanghai, China. Once they arrive, they have to travel by taxi to a village (that I can’t pronounce) to get their clue. With Carol & Brandy eliminated, we have to listen to Caite (being the last girl standing) talk about how proud of herself she is…um isn’t this a team effort? Aren’t you with Brent? Anyway, all the teams catch up at McDonald’s for some fast food, fitting for a fast race (minus the fact that they’ll likely feel sick afterwards). Jordan doesn’t agree with Caite having U-Turned Carol & Brandy for personal issues, when The Cowboys are actually a much bigger threat. Totally agree. The four teams board the same flight to Shanghai. Up, up and away!

Once they land, it’s back to the yellow taxi, and for once, The Cowboys actually take the lead in finding one first. They then make their way to a boathouse, take a boat, and travel to their next clue. Unfortunately for the Cute Bros and the Detectives, their Cab drivers are useless and get them totally lost.

As the episode kicks off, we hear Sharon talking about how “not fun” it has been being on the catty woman’s team, and that she thinks it’s time for her to go. Aiyayayay. Seems like Cyndi feels the same… as she finishes dropping off her check to her charity, having been the winning project manager last week, she says, “It’s kinda like “Apprentice – Survivor.” True story.

As Trump introduces the next challenge, he stands with Milanio and his toddler son, Baron. Since Rock Solid has hit rock bottom, with only Bret and Curtis left, the teams get reshuffled. Now, it’s Maria, Sharon and Bret on team Rock Solid agains Curtis, Holly, Cyndi, and Summer for Team Tenacity.

Their challenge is to create a celebrity 24 Hour Fitness workout. It is a money raising task. Also, the team with the workout that 24 Hour likes the best, gets an additional $24,000 added to their total. Someone representing the big donors must be there for the workout, or the money doesn’t count. As they get ready to get started, Cyndi pipes up and said she has to do this “Viva Glam” event with Lady Gaga, so she’ll have to be only available by phone for a bit for her team.

Holly is the project manager for Tenacity, while Sharon is for Rock Solid. Holly says Cyndi needs to deliver Lady Gaga, bottom line – in terms of getting her to donate. Here Jolly Holly goes on her usual power trips again…

Behind The Cast: This Week In My iPhone

In: Behind The Cast, Patrick

These days, I’m inseparable with my iPhone. Phone calls, text messages, emails, Facebook, iPod/music (part of current playlist in header photo), camera, calendar, Internet – it has so many uses! I’ve definitely been texting a lot more lately, having discovered this week that last month I went over my text message limit on my plan! And… my plan allows for a lot of text messages. Yikes! I can explain…but maybe not in this post.

On my walk to & from my store, I can listen to music, text message, accept calls, check my email, check sales statistics, take pictures and more. It’s a bit much. It’s highly addictive. I’ve been trying to limit it to one of the above, if any at all. If it’s a nice day, I’ll sometimes just (attempt to) put it away so that I try to take in more of the scenery around me – stop & smell the roses as they say.

With all this said, I thought a fitting Behind The Cast / personal post would be to take a glimpse into a week inside this device that never leaves my side – focusing on some funny texts & random photos.

Today, The Losers hits the big screen, and I got a chance to check it out earlier this week. Hmm, how to describe this movie? It’s A-Team meets Kill Bill meets Charlie’s Angels meets Iron Man meets 24. Certainly not quite as good as those movies, but certainly not a bad movie either. I was thoroughly entertained. It’s essentially, action, explosions, twists, cheesy (but funny) one-liners, with a splash of sexuality.

Synopsis:

An explosive action tale of betrayal and revenge, “The Losers” centers around the members of an elite Special Forces unit sent to the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. But the team—Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar—soon find that they have become the target of a deadly double cross, instigated from the inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Making good use of the fact that they are now presumed dead, the group goes deeply undercover in a dangerous plot to clear their names and even the score with Max.

Well, after reading what the movie is about, you definitely notice the similarity to A-Team (coming out June 11th, 2010) right? Essentially, with the A-Team, they are on the run from the military after being pegged as war criminals for a “crime they didn’t commit.” Exactly the same thing. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by The Losers, going into it with no expectations. It was a perfect blend of noteworthy fight scenes, incredible locations, hilarious one-liners and great characters – all accompanied by the perfect action soundtrack.

We’ve got another one! I can’t never have too much parody in my life. This one I came across on Redd‘s Facebook yesterday, so I thought I’d steal it and share it with y’all. This parody is to Ke$ha’s “Take It Off” song – which was actually one of the handful of songs I liked on the album.

A gaggle of gays from Boston actually created this video to enter into a Ke$ha contest, only to realize after entering that the videos had to be using Tik Tok, not whatever song you wanted. Well, thanks to YouTube, all their hard work hasn’t gone to waste.

You’ve got your hot men in underwear, a synchronized outdoor group dance, and the climax where, they “take it off”. Good work boys – the video is a lot of fun!

Katie Melua: The Flood (Of Hot Men)

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

The music video for a new single called The Flood, from Georgian/British singer/songwriter/musician Katie Melua, features a flood of hot men dancing to her dramatic lyrics. Hot, ripped bodies. Tight black underwear. Body contact. Oh, the song is good too!

One interesting fact about Melua is that she holds a World Record for playing the deepest underwater concert (303 metres below sea level) on the Norwegian Statoil’s Troll (which is a platform in the North Sea). Melua, along with her band, had to do extensive medical tests & survival training before flying by helicopter to the rig. As she put it: “It was the most surreal gig I have ever done”.

In 2006, Melua was both the UK’s biggest selling female artist, as well as Europe’s. The single “The Flood,” is off of her fourth studio album called “The House,” due for release on May 24th, 2010.

The Lost Boys of Afghanistan

In: Patrick, Politics & Issues, Videos

Behind the scenes of a country already inflicted by war, an ancient tradition has resurfaced across the country and PBS has uncovered this sad story. This tradition had been banned by the Taliban when they were in power, but now it seems to be happening again. It’s called “Bacha Bazi,” which translated means “Boy Play.” Orphaned boys or those purchases from poor families are dressed up in women’s clothing and are taught to sing & dance for “all-male parties”. Hundreds of boys, as young as eleven years old, are involved in this child abuse. They perform in front of successful businessmen and former warlords, to which they are auctioned off to the highest bidder for a night of sex. This sexual exploitation can sometimes lead to murder.

Najibullah Quraishi (don’t ask me how to pronounce that) is an Afghan journalist who was able to investigate this illegal practice. Sometimes, the authorities that should be the ones protecting these children and preventing it from happening, find themselves participating in it.

Take a glimpse into the the dark world of Bacha Bazi. So sad.

Annie Lennox just released a video explaining why she is wearing an HIV Positive T-Shirt (and why she was wearing it on Idol Gives Back last night).. It’s part of the SING Campaign. First of all, she says, the good news is she is not HIV positive. That being said, 22 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa are. She’s wearing the shirt in solidarity with them because it’s very hard for those people that are HIV Positive to be open about their status – to tell their friends and family. The goal is to normalize the “disease”. There is a lot of secrecy and silence with HIV. People are afraid to come out and say that they are HIV Positive. She says that being HIV positive doesn’t have to have the stigma. It should be like any other disease and people shouldn’t have to live in fear and secrecy. I mean, of course it must be that much hard to deal with something like HIV, or any disease for that matter, on your own. She says the shirt is “a tool for fighting stigma.

I think this is a great cause. There are a lot of organizations to help people HIV, and others to search for the cure. And I’m glad there’s this one too. The stigma doesn’t have to be there and we all need to help eliminate it. No one should feel ashamed or afraid to come out in the open about something like this. Can you imagine if people who had cancer or diabetes (or any disease) and just kept it to themselves because there was a stigma associated with it. How hard would it be to always have the on your mind and be trying to keep it from people.

I feel like I can empathize with people in this situation because I am gay. It was extremely difficult to live with a secret of being gay for so many years. It’s a burden (like the HIV stigma) that need not exist. Check out Annie Lennox’s video explanation & support for this program.
