Eleven teams get a second chance at one million dollars, starting in Palm Springs at a wind farm. Phil tells them that this race will be very, very different and that second chances don’t come free. The first team to finish this lag of the race first gets an express pass to use before challenge that they don’t want to do. Their first challenge is to run into the field and search among the hundreds of flags to find an airline that has to do with Queensland and Northern Territories. They must figure out that they are looking for the Quantas flag. The first eight teams to bring Phil this flag are on the first flight to Sydney, Australia. The remaining three teams will be on a flight that arrives 90 minutes later. Here’s how it played out:

First Flight:

  • 1. Mike & Mel – Father & Son
  • 2. Zev & Justin – Best Friends
  • 3. Jet & Chord – The Cowboys
  • 4. Kynt & Vyxsin – Goth Pair
  • 5. Ron & Christina – Father & Daughter
  • 6. Flight Time & Big Easy – Harlem Globetrotters
  • 7. Margie & Luke – Mother & Deaf Son
  • 8. Jamie & Cara – Cheerleaders

New Releases Out This Week: February 21st

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

This week, one new release is bound to be in the hands of many as British songstress Adele releases her second album, 21. Her first album which was titled 19 won the Brit two Grammy’s including Best New Artist. This new album has already been released in the UK and has performed quite well for Adele with her first single Rolling in the Deep hitting #1 in multiple countries across Europe.

After a spectacular performance at the Brit Awards this year, her next single Someone Like You went straight to #1 to accompany the album that was already sitting at #1. According to The Official Charts Company, Adele is the first living artist to have both her album and a single from the same album both at #1 at the same time.

This album is a bit different from Adele’s first compilation. While on tour in the southern states, her bus driver played a lot of country music. Adele enjoyed rocking out to it because she never grow up around that genre. She particularly began to adore The Rascal Flatts. You can hear the country influence in this new album with a bit of blues and pop mixed in. The album title, 21 reflects the growth she has experienced in the past two years since 19.

Do You “Love” The New Kazaky Music Video?

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

The sexy Ukrainian group known as Kazaky have finally released their music video for their second single “Love“. The video, directed by Yevgeniy Timokhin, is all in black & white and features the dancers turned boy band mates showing off their bodies through their fierce dance moves. The lyrics to the song aren’t anything complex, but their catchy. Mostly, I just love watching these guys dance – they’re really good.

I don’t think the video is quite as good as their first (“In The Middle“) but I still find it entertaining…even the bizarre organ solo that occurs halfway through the song

In 1979, The Bellamy Brothers released a track called “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body,” with the lyrics “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” Needless to say, they are a bit peeved about Britney Spears‘s new song having very similar lyrics. I’m a little undecided on whether I think this is even an issue. The lyrics aren’t even exactly the same and their song came out over thirty years ago.

David Bellamy explains, “Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She’s a talented gal. But professionally we feel completely ripped off.” Britney’s HIAM lyrics say, “If I said I want your body now, would you hold it against me?”

Listen to the track below and share your thoughts on whether or not you think they have a case here.

Unknown Takes Box Office This Weekend

In: Movies, Patrick

Unknown made I Am Number Four say “I Am Number Two” at the box office this weekend. This was surprising to me, considering all of the promotion for I Am Number Four. Promoted as the followup to Taken, Unknown (starring Liam Neeson) brought in almost $22 million this weekend, well on it’s way for becoming profitable with a production budget of $30 million. I Am Number Four brought in $19.5 million, with a production budget that is double that of Unknown, at $60 million. This weekend it seems that most people were in the mood for a thriller!

Speaking of production budgets, did you know that Just Go With It cost $80 million? Yikes, it’s not even an action flick – Aniston and Sandler must have cost a pretty penny. The film was still pretty strong this week, taking the number four spot bringing in $18.2 million making their total earnings now $60.7 million.

One more new film opened this weekend…which would totally be a rental in my opinion. Find out which film this is and how the rest of the Top 10 list played out below.

All of the Lights is the fourth single from Kanye West’s latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kanye produced the track for himself and it features many an artist contributing to the backing vocals including Elton John, Fergie, Alicia Keys, The-Dream, John Legend, Elly Jackson, and Kid Cudi. However, West chose to solely feature Rihanna as the artist accompanying him on the single. The song didn’t crack Top 10 on the charts however many critics praised the song for its dramatic theme and precise and detailed production which is shown in how the backing vocals is layered. One of Kanye’s producing partners explained it to MTV.

“He got me to layer up all these vocals with other people, and he just basically wanted to use his favorite vocalists from around the world to create this really unique vocal texture on his record, but it’s not the kind of thing where you can pick it out”.

The video was filmed in January with Hype Williams at the helm. It features a lot of word graphics classic to Hype’s style with strobe and colored clips of Rihanna, Kid Cudi and Kanye in reference to Gasper Noé’s 2009 film Enter The Void.

It’s amazing how a silly hilarious stunt can help a fledgling talk show get some much needed press. When James Earl Jones booked an appearance on “The Gayle King Show“, he probably had no idea what he signed for. At the tail end of his interview, Gayle politely asked the voice of Darth Vader if he could recite a stanza from Justin Bieber’s hit “Baby“. Even before he started reciting Bieber’s words, I started to smile in anticipation of what was coming. Watch it below and see what you think.

As an special added bonus, I also embedded a video of William Shatner on The Conan O’Brien Show. The former Captain Kirk, also did a dramatic reading of his own. He delivered a uber dramatic, complete with hand motions, performance of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. His short showing here is way funnier than the crap he’s forced to spit out on CBS’ “$#*! My Dad Says”. Check them both out below, and cast your vote on which was better.

David Archuleta Dropped From Jive Records

In: Donovan, Music

David Archuleta first wowed us at the age of sixteen on “American Idol’s” seventh season. David infamously squared off against the other David of that season, David Cook, in the “Battle of the Davids“. The finale logged in more than 97 million votes with Archuleta receiving 44% of the vote.

Now 20-years-old, the Season 7 runner-up is experiencing a major blow in his relatively young career. Archuleta has been dropped by his label, Jive Records most probably in part to disappointing sales for his second album, “The Other Side of Down“. We’ve all heard of the sophomore slump, and in Archuleta’s case its more like a disaster. Looks like his album title proved prophetic. Now he knows what the “other side of down” is… it’s called unemployment.
