Splash didn't make a splash with all viewers after the first heat (featuring Jake Canuso as the candy) had been aired. But it left a lot of room for improvements. And I have to give it to ITV, they did improve, and dramatically, too. The second and third heats were worth watching for several reasons. And then there is always +Tom Daley.
A year ago, I was offered an exclusive view into what the guys at North Pole headquarters are up to when going on holidays: Santa Claus Undressed. This year, I have been granted an exclusive view into the family album of Santa Claus. As the North Pole community is made up of only male members, as we know from the history books (female members are the figments of imagination of some weird writers), the pictures are of the adopted sons of Santa Claus and what they are up to.
There is not much reason for me to write about +Tom Daley. He's such a good boy. He never gets into the dirty pages of the tabloids. But he does look good undressed. The less he is wearing, the sexier he appears. So the reason for this article is just because I enjoyed his saucy strip for +BBC Children in Need. Call it a Pudsey Bear strip, if you want.
Do you enjoy +Carly Rae Jepsen's video Call Me Maybe as much as I do? I was first drooling and then laughing like an idiot the first time I saw it. The video becomes that much more funny when you know that there are stories to back it up. And Holden Nowell is worth watching no matter what.
I know that most of you want to misunderstand me. But then there are sports and there are sports. I am sure bed sport counts for fitness much more than any other, at least it keeps your minds active. You can lose as many calories and use as many or more muscles than with any other sport. I mean, you just have to look at the pictures to see how well it works.
Do you think sport is exciting? I do. Usually for the sport as such, but sometimes for the guys that are competing in it. And some sports I find exciting to compete in. That is one side. And then there are the guys who find their sport extremely exciting like some wrestlers. They find their sport so exciting, in fact, that it shows. And then some.
It's magic. October comes and a new series of Merlin appears on screen. The success of a well known story broken into bite size bits and staffed with over-pretty actors and actresses breeds sequel after sequel. The magic of it is that just about everyone has some idea how the general story runs. Missed an episode? Not that important you'll still be able to follow what is going on based on what you know.
Magic Mike is the latest film showing a lot of male bodies in nothing more than strings and leather - and often less. It is aimed at testosterone hunters, those out for the thrill of undressing in public or for the voyeuristic pleasure of seeing someone do so. The story is supposed to represent that of a male stripper trying to enter a relationship. I took that from the description supplied by Warner Bros. It is not obvious when watching the movie.
If you think +Tom Daley is sexy, then maybe you would like to take a good look at his teammates in Britain's diving team. Preparing for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Australia, they made a funny video. And they managed very well to show off all their muscles and other interesting parts, too.
In the United Kingdom, your business is made when you receive a Royal warrant. Warrants are granted by +Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales. The warrants accredit your business as a regular supplier to the Royal courts and attest the quality standard of your products and service.
+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.
Australia's +Bernard Tomic was the featured teen boy in +Roger Federer's jubilee match. With 1,000 matches played in the ATP since 1998 when he entered the tennis circus as an excitable teen, Roger may not be the record holder but it is an impressive figure. At the Australian open, Roger was playing the jubilee match against Bernard Tomic, an excitable young teen playing for Australia.
Zac Efron has reinvented himself. Or he has reinvented his body. The slim dancing teen has become Hulk Hogan while we were looking somewhere else. Nothing left of the young boy charm of Troy Bolton, and mothers should think twice to describe him as favorite son-in-law now. He now looks like the perfect sin-in-law for boys and girls (and mums and dads).
With his twenty years, Louis Tomlinson is the doyen of +One Direction (or Wand Erection as some twitterati call them). His tweets, should you read them, are more revealing than any live blog available. I am not sure that this was intended by the management. Either they forgot to tell him that they would write his tweets, or the person who does write it for him has a unique sense of humor (well, not completely unique, I share it and I am not the writer).
+The Wanted are one of Britain's successful boy bands with a handful of candy twinks appealing to girls and gays alike. The five singing boys are Max George (Masimilian Alberto George), Nathan Sykes (Nathan James Sykes), Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness (James McGuiness), and Tom Parker (Thomas Anthony Parker).
I for one think an actor is an actor. If he is a good actor, then watching him play is fun, if he is a bad actor, well then it is definitely no fun. Bad actors don't get better just because they are good looking or sexy. But seemingly, there are people who think that if an actor is too good looking then his acting becomes worse. Someone understand this as I don't.
It is telling that Santa Claus and his community of elves have always been a male only club in American folklore until but recently. The invention of purely fictitious female characters doesn't change the reality of the real Santa Claus, though. I have been invited to take a view of what is going on behind the scene at the residence of the most famous person of today.
Buckingham Palace was facing a dilemma. How does One attach a medal to a naked cricket player? The Queen doesn't hold the necessary university degree to do nipple piercings, a Palace insider told me. In the end, Alastair Cook decided to appear dressed to the honors ceremony to receive his MBE. Some of the spectators were disappointed by that, I'm sure.
