OMG. This has got to be the funniest sh*t, I’ve seen in a while. It’s “The Amazing Race” meets “Wipeout“. Surprisingly, during 16 past seasons of TAR, there have been very few injuries considering all the physical tasks, extreme temperatures and unforeseen obstacles. Unfortunately for Season 17 contestant Claire Champlin, she defied odds and was dealt with some bad luck, when a wayward watermelon smacked her in the face. CBS released hilarious footage of Claire’s “accident” during a roadblock and as expected, it has gone viral.

During the task, Champlin had to catapult watermelons in hopes of hitting an armored knight. No one could’ve predicted one of the watermelons would have had a mind of its own and attack Champlin’s face and explode upon contact. OUCH. That’s gotta hurt. Not only is it hilarious watching it once, but thanks to CBS it’s funnier in slow-motion. I can’t believe they replayed it so many times. Those opportunistic hookers knew they struck gold when this was caught on camera.

LFO Lead Singer Rich Cronin Dies

In: Donovan, Music

The Lyte Funky Ones, aka LFO, lost one their own yesterday. Rich Cronin, the former lead singer of the band, passed away after a long battle with leukemia. He was first diagnosed with the disease in March 2005. After initial treatment was successful, he went into remission in January 2006. To promote blood and bone marrow donation, he developed his own foundation, The Rich Cronin Hope Foundation. His passing occurred just two weeks after his 35th birthday.

Cronin and his boy band hit it big with their ubiquitous summer hit “Summer Girls” in 1999. They had another moderate hit, “Girl On TV“, but remained mostly a one-hit wonder. When his cancer went into remission, Cronin participated in the short-lived VH1 series, “Mission: Man Band” where he joined forces with Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees), Chris Kirkpatrick (*NSYNC) and the other Bryan Adams (Color Me Badd) to form a new band SureShot. The show documented their cumulative attempt at a comeback, but sadly nothing ever came to fruition.

Series Premiere: Hellcats

In: Patrick, TV Shows

Last night, Hellcats premiered on the CW and on top of an entertaining premiere episode, I think the way the episode ended, it has left everyone hooked so they at the very least have to see what happens next week. If you haven’t heard a thing about this show let me give you a quick synopsis. Hellcats is a show based on the world of college competitive cheerleading. When the Hellcats’ star flyer goes down, they most replace her quickly and find hope in rookie Marti Perkins. But, will she have what it takes to help the team beat their rival Memphis Christian at Regionals? That’s for you to find out next week.

Here we go again. America’s Next Top Model is back. The catfights are back. The stereotypical casting is back. The bitchy blog is back. Tyra Banks is back, but that is the last time we will use her fake name here at Homorazzi. To me, she will always be Tyrant. Why? Because she is a ridiculous caricature, fake, transparent with her editing, and way too prone to stupid gimmicks. Despite all that… we love her. And, we love Top Model. Still. Here we are at Cycle 15 and the show has YET to produce an actual supermodel. A lot of the girls are working, but there has been no Adriana or Gisele or Agyness. Tyrant has never picked a high fashion winner… Jaslene and midget Nicole were close, but not the real deal. Could this year be different? Will Tyrant’s newfound love for high fashion finally give us a REAL model? Or are we destined to relive the CoverGirl slash Walmart slash Seventeen failures of the past? Who else misses Elyse? Sigh.

Concrete Wallpaper (pictured above)

We’ve seen unfinished concrete walls, ceilings and floors in industrial style loft apartments from converted warehouses and I love the raw look of concrete. Now you can have the same look without the hassle of having to pour and mix the cement. All you need to do is pick a pattern from Concrete Wall, which comes in  about 27 different styles from cinder blocks to graffiti covered.

A local Vancouver-based charity is about to celebrate a huge achievement; successfully changing (and saving) lives for 20 years! If you haven’t heard of A Loving Spoonful, the following excerpt from their website (www.alovingspoonful.org) should help;

As we commence the episode, we know that Lane & Britney are up for eviction and there’s one final Power of Veto to come that will determine who’s in the final three. It’s day 68 and there is only one week left until someone gets a rich.

Britney is well aware that she has to fight incredibly hard to stay in the game – but really, she has no idea. Meanwhile, Hayden and Enzo still hope that Lane’s loyalties are still to them over Britney. As Britney fights for her life, she tries to convince Lane and Hayden that Enzo would win in the final two. She may be right.

At the Veto Competition, the houseguests have 8 clues on top and 8 clues on bottom and they must match the corresponding “movie poster” to the clues. The first houseguest to hit their buzzer with all the correct answers wins POV – it’s called Big Brother Marquee. trivia. Lane is a write-off in this challenge, Britney is too slow and methodical and Hayden looks as though he was gonna win. Enzo buzzes in first but has it wrong. Hayden buzzes in second….and has it right. Now that Hayden won, Lane has to make them believe he was with the brigade all the way and was never going to choose Britney over them.

“I’ll be there for you…” Boy, didn’t The Rembrandts score the lottery with that song. Real-life BFFs, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, are together again for “Cougar Town’s” Season 2 premiere. ABC just released photos of the former “Friends” stars’ pseudo reunion.

This isn’t the first time one of Cox’s “Friends” has shown up on the cul-de-sac. Lisa Kudrow played a dermatologist during her guest star stint last Fall. Now, it’s Rachel Jennifer’s turn to play a member of the medical profession. Aniston will play Cox’s too-good-too-be-true therapist. The two become fast friends (talk about art imitating life), which causes the ire of Cox’s Cougar Town BFF, Ellie (Christa Miller). Hell hath no fury like Ellie scorned.
