Vince McMahon wants WWE superstars to become better actors. Freddy Prinze Jr. has been tasked with teaching them acting skills. [source]
Padma seductively eating a soft pretzel isn't quite Padma dancing wild-eyed with knives in the promos for Top Chef: Chicago.
Also: Cobra Starship?
Season five will feature Martha Stewart and Foo Fighters, but not David Chang, who's fuckin' associated with New York! [sigh]
Other chefs I'd like to see on Top Chef:
Mario Batali (friend of "friend of Top Chef" Anthony Bourdain). His Iron Chef America contract must include a no-compete clause.
Marco Pierre White (also a friend of Bourdain)
Thomas Keller (friend and former boss of Tom Colicchio)
CBS + Jerry Bruckheimer + "Lucky" by Radiohead HUH.
Sex Change Hospital (WE tv)
"Follows transgender men and women as they receive a life-changing surgery from Dr. Marci Bowers, known as the 'Rock Star' of transgender surgery."
This is supposed to entertain women?
I saw a documentary in June on Dr. Marci. S/he's kind of a dick.
Mr. and Mrs. Wolf (Animal Planet)
"British wolf expert Shaun Ellis became famous for his unprecedented experiences embedded in a wolfpack. Helen is Shaun's fiancee, but when it comes to the wolves, she is still a novice."
"Sometimes I feel that you like the wolves more than me!"
Dead Set (E4)
"A horror drama set in a fictional Big Brother house. The contestants are blissfully unaware that zombies are attacking the living outside. Until an eviction night where all hell breaks loose…"
Count me in.
