With stunning lights, lively music, and Gisele Bundchen, the 2016 Rio Olympics have been officially begun. It may not be as extravagant as the London Olympics four years back, or as grandiose as the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Rio’s Opening Ceremony features an earthy feel, with an environmental message.
Watch highlights of the opening ceremony to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, featuring spectacular fireworks, the Parade of Nations and the symbolic lighting of the cauldron. Video Courtesy of BBC News.

Well, he ended his stint with zero wins and zero bragging rights. Ceelo Green announced in the Ellen DeGeneres Show that he will not be returning to NBC’s The Voice, at all.
He told Ellen that he still has not cut ties with NBC and that he still has a television deals with them in the future that even includes a talk show of some sort. And he is also planning on releasing a new record, something that he hasn’t done for the last four years!
Here’s the clip of the surprise announcement:
Personally, I wouldn’t even care if he leaves or not because as far as I’m concerned as a viewer (and a fan at that), he did not do much as a coach and I think he is the weak link on the panel. Christina Aguilera seemed to step up last season, sadly he did not. Now the next question is that, who will replace Ceelo? Will Usher assume Ceelo’s role? Or will Shakira amp up girl power with Xtina?

I can’t believe Survivor has been running for 28 seasons and still counting and still going strong! Now for its 28th season, Survivor is going back YET AGAIN to the Philippines (the production has been here for 4 consecutive times already, isn’t it amazing?), but instead of bringing back past competitors, CBS has brought out 18 all-fresh and all-new batch of castaways!
In this season, three tribes of six will be grouped according to three very distinguishing characteristics: Brains, Beauty, and Brawn. The question of the season is that, will the tribe of Brawn dominate all the challenges given their physical attributes, or will the tribe of Brains dominate and outwit the mental part of the game, or will the tribe of Beauty use their looks to master the social game? My thoughts? As much as I love seeing new castaways, I was expecting to see the Brains Tribe to look like real geeks, like Beauty and the Geek meets The Big Bang Theory kind of geeks, but they all look good and strong!
So without further ado, let us all meet the 18 new castaways who will be battling out for the million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor. Look, it’s Cliff Robinson!
