ABC's Boy Band: It's Like American Idol With a Sugar High

I decided to watch ABC's new show Boy Band, as boy bands are a part of my memory and I was curious about how the network would bring the concept back to life. The show follows the American Idol format, but is super sweet and positive because the contestants are as young as fourteen.

The show, hosted by Rita Ora, had a two hour season premiere. All of the participants auditioned, then some were cut, although quite kindly. Even the judges critiques were kind. Timbaland was the voice of reason, Emma Bunton (Baby Spice from the Spice Girls) was super happy and enamored with the young talent and Nick Carter was just happy to have a job. (I kid, I kid - he's there as the one with the most experience with an actual boy band and the knowledge of the singing and dancing abilities needed to succeed.)

Some guys were cut, leaving 18 to continue the competition. The remaining guys were divided into three groups, called Six Track, Reverb and Uplift. Some awkward dancing followed, which is to be expected. Following that, Uplift performed on the show. They did surprisingly well for a new boy band.

The judges, called architects on this show, had to decide which member of Uplift would be going home. Cameron was the first of the final group to be cut, but they did it nicely - Timbaland said he wants to see him solo.

Overall, the show was nice. Fluffy, fun, kind and family friendly. The two hour season premiere was excessively long, but if future episodes aren't as long, this is a decent show to watch. Plus, I think we'll be hearing a lot of these guys on the radio in the near future.

90 Day Fiance's Anfisa Has a Video on PornHub!

So, as if Jorge and Anfisa's relationship on 90 Day Fiance wasn't weird enough, it just got even crazier. Apparently, Anfisa made a solo video for PornHub!

This article states that the video was made before Jorge and Anfisa were an item, but Jorge was aware of Anfisa's previous career path. In fact, it reports that the pair met on a cam girl site, not on Facebook as we were led to believe. And to be honest, I believe that - Jorge saw a sexy model and Anfisa saw an opportunity, which led us to where we are today.

While it's not verified that the woman in the video is Anfisa, the images (see the first linked article, which has all naughty bits covered up) are pretty convincing.

Jorge can't be happy about this, as people have been openly critical of his relationship with Anfisa, and this isn't going to help.
