Judges-and-hosts

anonymous asked:

Other pros have higher rank (seniority) than Jenna does, regardless if Mandy loves her or not. More than likely, Kym being back bumped Jenna out of pro spot last season. People here aren't experts in what happens bts' at DWTS. I'm pretty sure Mandy respects more dancers than just Jenna and to state otherwise is doing Jenna no favors

I didn’t say she only respects Jenna you just read that. What I said is she has spent a good amount of time AWAY from dwts with jj On another show. Fun fact: no one is out to get the pros. Not the judges, the hosts, tptb or mm. But to suggest that the ONLY reason jj would get a pro spot is because of val is not only wrong but it’s also demeaning as fuck to JJ and what she’s accomplished, Mandy herself and every female on that pro lineup.

Okay but literally I love the Food Network so much like

- They are so diverse, there is not one show of Chopped/Cutthroat Kitchen/Guy’s Grocery’s Games that I have seen that does not have an assortment of races/cultures (white, black, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Mexican, French, African, etc), both judges and participants

-They are a family channel that is wonderfully supportive of LGBT chefs; I’ve seen a fair amount of gay and lesbian chefs on it and the judges/hosts are always super supportive

-They do children’s versions of a lot of their shows, which is really good for children’s self esteem, to see kids their age able to do such cool things

-They have yearly competitions to help one group of people learn to cook better and another group to obtain their own show on the Network (and the first group isn’t chosen by them, there are literally kids/husbands/wives/partners who send in letters begging the Network to help that particular person cook better). 

- Guy Fieri. Most unproblematic fave in the entire Network. 

-They are so fast to get rid of problematic people as soon as they recognize they are a bad person (Paula Deen, anyone?)

- In every competition, unless specifically stated otherwise, they do their damnedest to have at least one female chef compete which is difficult since male chefs outnumber female ones. 

-They regularly have competitions between Food Network chefs and give any money they “win” to a charity. 

- They always give money to children who are impoverished and are in need of school lunches

Like I can’t…think of anything I don’t like about the Food Network? Except that I CAN’T EAT THE FOOD I WATCH THEM MAKE

Starz is putting all its Comic-Con eggs in one Scottish basket this year as Outlander returns to the San Diego confab.


After an absence last year, the cast and creative of the Ronald D. Moore EP’d sultry time-travel series based on Diana Gabladon’s bestsellers are back and set to take the stage in Ballroom 20 of the San Diego Convention Center on July 21 at 5 PM.

A SDCC fav, the Outlanderpanel will see leads Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan join Moore and Gabaldon as well as fellow EP Maril Davis on the Con’s second day. Fellow cast members Tobias Menzies, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin will be in attendance too. World of Dance judge Jenna Dewan Tatum will host the panel.

The Golden Globe and Emmy nominated Outlander is set to return for its third season on the premium cabler in September– no specific date has been announced but maybe that will come at SDCC. The third season of the series, from Moore and Sony Pictures TV, will consist of 13 episodes based on Voyager, the third of eight books in Gabaldon’s Outlander series

As well as a panel this year,Outlander will also be holding an autograph session of the SDCC floor on July 22, with the time to be announced later.

Comic-Con 2017 runs from July 20- 23, with the traditional preview night on July 19.

Forged in Fire (1/?)

A CS Bladesmithing AU for @thesschesthair

Here’s to kilts, damascus and banging it out! (Eventually, so this one will get an E rating.)

_______________________________________________________________________

She took everything the show threw at her.

Forging her signature blade – a mirror-shined bowie with an antler handle – out of reclaimed lawnmower blades.

The producer who seemed to want nothing more than to test the mettle of the rare female contestant and added the canister Damascus angle to the first round – a feat not only for the amateur home forge bladesmith, but some professionals as well.

A tough final challenge that had the semi-finalists returning to their home forges with five days to return with a weapon worthy of a win.

And this was all under the umbrella of a male-dominated profession. To hear the vast majority of her fellow smithers tell it, women were rarely up to the task. The working conditions were too hard, the women too physically weak to hammer out their steel.

When they were backstage during the meet and greet before filming started, he knew in a split second she was tough as nails. Chin held high, back ramrod-straight, arms strong, and a schooled expression that had just a hint of “fuck you” thrown in for good measure. He could tell she was used to glances and whispers, probably as much for her looks as for her chosen profession, or maybe a bit of both since she was beautiful; lithe and blonde with high cheekbones and an ass you could bounce a quarter off of.

Her three male counterparts all but confirmed his suspicions as they huddled together talking quietly amongst themselves, their interest in her as a specimen coming through loud and clear as their eyes raked over her body. When one caught his eye and winked conspiratorially, inviting them into their douchebag fraternity, he looked back at the man with a steely gaze.

He had a reputation as a hardass to live up to after all, plus he didn’t give a damn what was between a bladesmith’s legs as long as they produced quality work. And she did.

Fanfiction writing prompt:

In a group of six, who is the judge, who is the host, and who are the four competitors in an episode of cutthroat kitchen? Who goes out first, and who stays in until the very last round?

“I would have liked to live in 1942...”

Let’s talk of the Italian meme of the moment:
Miss Italia 2015.

Some days ago this girl:

has become the new Miss Italia. Her name is Alice Sabatini and she actually is an average-looking Italian girl, but that’s another story, the real problem is what she answered when one of the judges asked the finalists when they would have liked to live and who they would have liked to be:

Alice: “Err… in the ‘42, a thousand….”
A judge and the host helped her “1942?“
Alice: *kinda nods* “To-”
Judge 1: “To?”
Host: “During ww2?”
Judge 1: “I mean, ok, that’s the year, but is there a reason?”
Alice: “T-to actually see the ww2 since the books talks pages and pages-well, I wanted to live it..? After all I’m a woman so I wouldn’t have been a soldier, I would have stayed at home with the fear of-”
Judge 2: “Got it, Simona (the host)? We’ve gone from ‘I wish for peace on Earth’ to “I’d like to live the war’.”
(Her grammar was quite terrible)

Her questionable answer made the Italian side of the internet blow up.

Memes under the cut.

Today seems like a pretty slow day so how many of you are willing to compete in a Chopped event tonight? Basically, it would be like the show with 3 judges and a host. Instead of doing this by yourself, we will put you all in teams based on who likes the post. Whatever team makes the best dish, they will each get $2,000 that will go towards tuition and/or books. So if you’re interested in being on a team then like this post.

jooheon would be all confident. how he approaches the foreigner would be his shoulders up, his chest high but in reality it would be a red jooheon, slowly walking up to them like, “hey… my name jooheon…” afterwards he’ll go back to i.m to ask for tips, he would be the one learning english rather than them learning korean. he would take it well, but it would take a lot of time.

Originally posted by moongyu

i.m, everyone knows, has lived in boston and israel for quite a few years so going up to a foreigner would not be weird for him. he would take them and tour them around as they are foreigners, to get to know them better. he knows english so dating a foreigner would not be out of the blue. “let’s party baby!”

Originally posted by allbout-starshiplanet

shownu is a quiet guy. he’ll be tapping the foreigner on the back, slowly asking “uh.. hello.. do you.. uh… korean..” it would take him a lot of time to fall in love with the foreigner though, but once he does he asks changkyun what to do, how to speak english, but still keep calm.

Originally posted by allbout-starshiplanet

wonho, wonho, wonho. this boy will probably stare from afar, and once he gets the chance to - he’ll introduce himself and it’ll go smoothly, he did his research and practice until he messes up and he becomes a giggly red mess. “did it hurt when you fell heaven.. ah, wait..” rather than going to changkyun, he’ll go back and rehearse and come back confidently. he would take it well but he’ll be a cutie while doing it which is the total opposite of what he was going for.

Originally posted by fy-hyungwonho

hyungwon doesn’t know much english, judging from changkyun hosting simply kpop, hyungwon will only say things like, “hi, how are you, good” and run back to changkyun and spending his whole night trying to impress the foreigner the next day. he would take his time but he would fall in love fast.

I love this Miss Disney round!! The main theme of one of the girls getting to be Kuzvo's bride and the friendships that develop between the girls are also wonderful to watch ❤ all the best to all the contestants and thank you for the MD team/judges for hosting this ❤❤❤

This isn’t technically a question I can answer, and we don’t tend to reply to those (we do keep them in mind, however). But for this one I just wish to thank you for the great support you are giving us, and for the compliments! I hope you will continue to enjoy Mx Disney for the next seasons as well! :)
