Jeanne Beker is going to provide some tutoring this week about how to deal with the media. Her first lesson is about “the impatient interviewer”.

The second lesson is about “the distracted interviewer”. The third is about “the technically concerned interviewer”. The fourth is about “the ill-prepared interviewer”. The fifth is about “the pushy interviewer”.

Tia drives Jeanne nuts by not paying attention during the lessons. Jeanne says that it’s because she is ADD.

The girls then head over to the set of Star! Daily where they are greeted by Dina Pugliese. Their task is for them to be the interviewer. There is a mystery celebrity guest which they will have 10 questions to ask them.

The guest is Adamo Ruggiero from Degrassi: The Next Generation. Adamo puts on an act and really piles on the pressure to the girls.

Is Tia using her dyslexia as a crutch?

Sinead wins the challenge and gets the chance to be a real interviewer on Fashion TV. She also wins a 37″ LCD television. At the fashion show, Sinead interviews designers Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish who both thought she did a good job.

Nolé Marin meets the girls at an airport and introduces them to Mike Rosenthal, their photographer from LA for this shoot.

After a bit of a fight between Tia and Mo, the boys from the hockey team turn up for a bit of a party. Rebecca kisses one of the boys despite the fact that she has a boyfriend outside of the show.

On the judging panel this week are Paul Alexander, Yasmin Warsame, Jeanne Beker and Dina Pugliese. After looking at their glamour shots, Mo is by far the best of the day.

Getting a photo from Jay are: Mo, Rebecca, Tara, Sinead and Tia. Cori is in the bottom two along with Gina who has found herself there for the last few weeks. Getting the last photo is Cori as Gina’s luck finally runs out on Canada’s Next Top Model.

The girls each get an 8 mega pixel digital camera in a goodie bag from Kodak.

The girls head to a hockey rink where they are lead out onto a red carpet. Skating out to meet them is runway trainer J. Alexander. The girls have to put on skates to show how graceful they are both and on and off the ice. Mo has never skated before and falls over and falls hard on her ass.

J gets the girls to walk for him before calling out model coach Stacey McKenzie.

The girls head to the set of Much on Demand where they will walk in front of a live audience only wearing a pink catsuit and a veil.

Sinead carries an apple and gets a small cheer. Mo, with a tennis racket gets a slightly bigger cheer. As does Steff with her toilet brush. Tia and her sweeper get a small cheer. Cori and her flowers get a bit more. Tara and her wisk get a big cheer. Rebecca and her frying pan get a smaller cheer. Gina gets a huge cheer for her pom poms.

The winner of today will win a diamond watch and that winner is Tara.

Steff, Mo, Tia and Cori complain about Tara and Gina and how rude they were in the elevator down to the car after she won the task. Steff says if she talks to her like that again, she will snap. Tara arrogantly parades the fact that she won in front of everyone.

Nolé Marin tells the girls that they will be doing a television commercial for Venus Breeze Razors.

To judge the girls this week is Paul Alexander, Yasmin Warsame, Jeanne Beker, Miss J. Alexander and Jay, of course. Miss J gets everyone to do the walk in a pencil skirt. They view the commercial which looks much better than the shoot suggested it would.

This week the girls learnt how to walk and talk but who didn’t match up across the board?

Jay tells everyone that this week was a pretty bad week overall so getting through doesn’t really say much.

Getting a photo from Jay are Tara, Cori, Sinead, Rebecca, Mo and Tia. It comes down to Steff and Gina. The judges think that Gina is more of an actress than a model but Steff is the one going home and Gina is still in the running to become Canada’s Next Top Model.

It’s a house like no other. Where 51 cameras follow your every move and 74 microphones capture your every word. This is the Big Brother house. Tonight, 14 men and women will enter this house with one goal in mind – to be the last one standing. They will live in total confinement. Cut off from the outside world. Each week, the houseguests compete for food, luxuries and most importantly, power. Each week they will vote to evict one of their own until only one house guest remains to claim the half million dollar prize.

And tonight, six people have no idea what is about to happen to them. They will each come face to face with the last person they would ever want to see. An estranged father and daughter who have not spoken in two years. Bitter ex-boyfriends – one sought vengeance by turning all their friends against the other. And former highschool best friends forever but one tore them apart.

Julie Chen introduces us to the house guests who were excited to discover they had received a key to the big brother house. Jessica, a student and a cheerleader, will only be cheering for herself. Nick, Former Pro Football Player, says he’s going to use his body for bait. Eric, a Talent Management Assistant, thinks no one has ever played this game like him before.

Daniele, a waitress, is about to see her estranged father for the first time in two years and doesn’t want anyone to underestimate this Californian girl. Her father, Dick, is a Bar Manager and doesn’t think the house is going to know what’s hit them.

Jen, a Nanny, says her body is not her only asset. Mike, a Painting Contractor, reckons he’s going to paint the rest of the house guests out of the picture.

Kail, a Business Owner, thinks she’s going to run the Big Brother house. Joe, a Receptionist, is going to blow away the competition. Carol, also a Student and an ex BFF of Jessica’s, says that she’s one senator’s daughter who knows a thing or two about politics.

Amber, a Cocktail Waitress, is a single mom from Vegas who is about to show us how the game is supposed to be played. Zach, a Graphic Designer, says he’s going to out think the competition.

Dustin, a Shoe Salesman and ex boyfriend of Joe, says he’s going to walk all over the competition. Jameka, a School Counselor, is a very sweet person but you don’t want to get on the bad side of.

The housemates have an hour to pack upon learning that they’ve received a key to the Big Brother house.

Julie brings 11 of the housemates in to meet each other. None of them are allowed to talk to each other until they’re inside the house.

The first thing the housemates have to do on entering the house is choose a bed. They have 1 minute to do so. The catch is that they might be sharing a bed if they don’t choose carefully. Julie says they will enter in three groups. The first group is Carol, Joe, Mike and Amber. Daniele and Jameka are next. Kail, Jen, Eric and Zach are then let in.

The houseguests guess that the theme of the house is Alice in Wonderland and then do their introductions.

There are three people already in the house but where are they? There are three people upstairs. Dick, Jessica and Dustin. Julie tells them that they are about to find out that they are going to be spending the summer with someone they don’t really want to be in there with. They each see who they know in the house and then talk amongst themselves about their stories.

Julie tells the 11 that there is another group in the house and that they have been watching them.

The first Head of Household competition is about to begin. The winner will receive their own room and the power to put two other house guests up for eviction. The housemates have to pair up and stand in front a mushroom. Nick doesn’t have a partner and so he has sit the game out.

After answering a series of questions and surviving their mushroom spining around, Kail and Eric beat the other 9 and the 3 house guests upstairs get to decide who will be the Head of Household. Eric didn’t want to win and begs them to give the position to Kail. They choose Kail. The Three upstairs are safe from eviction this week.

Bringing the two groups together is going to set off some fireworks. How they use their experience is up to them.

Joe guesses who he thinks it is going to be. He says Dustin gave him gonorrhea and that he ruined all his relationships with his friends. Daniele is pretty sure that it’s her dad. Joe says that whatever happens, they need to make sure that they all get rid of them in the next couple of weeks. The houseguests come down and a somber mood befalls the house. Carol and Daniele head to the bathroom and Jameka joins them to comfort Daniele who is clearly upset.

It’s time to meet America’s player. Eric will be completely controlled by the public. For every 5 tasks Eric accomplishes, he will earn $10,000. Sunday at 8/7c is the first chance to control America’s Player and how the enemies twist affects the nominations.

Will enemies bury the hatchett or fight to the finish?

On Tuesday at 9/8c, Will the golden power of veto save one of the nominees from the chopping block. Thursday at 8/7c will be the first eviction.

It started in America with 11 year old Bianca Ryan. Then it became a world wide phenomenon. Now, the original and biggest talent show in the world is back with a new host. The king of talk and reality dancing superstar Jerry Springer.

Hundreds of thousands all with one dream. The drama. The good. The bad. And the judges. It is now time to awaken the orignal and biggest search for stardom in the world and decide if America’s Got Talent.

Over the next four weeks the auditions will travel to Dallas, LA, Chicago and New York and will be open to absolutely anyone.

The acts that make it through the auditions will travel to Las Vegas for one of twenty places in the studio performance shows before the public vote for who will win the one million dollar prize. But first they will need to get past the judges.

TV giant David Hasselhoff is back. David’s multimillion dollar success in Knight Rider and Baywatch have sealed his reputation as one of America’s greatest entertainment legends. This platinum selling recording artist and stage performer is prepared for anything.

Returning for season two and back with a vengeance is Piers Morgan. Described as the most powerful newspaper editor in Britain, Piers has interviewed and written about some of the biggest names in the world. Now an international expert as judge in both Britain and America, this best selling author is a man on a mission.

Hollywood’s multimillion dollar queen of entertainment has arrived. Sharon Osbourne. The wife and manager of Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most powerful women in the music industry. Her super hit show The Osbournes has also made her a worldwide name. Now she’ll help decide the fate of America.

Dallas is first up on the audition tour.

Tony La Brea sings Dontcha with his Barry White voice. Three X’s and he’s out.

The Duttons are next with the entire country family. They were fun but Piers buzzes them out. Sharon and David put them through to the Las Vegas callbacks.

Adam Aaron Michaels doesn’t even get to start before the judges shut him down.

18 year old Meghan Miller performs ventriloquest with two puppets. Sharon and David say they want to see her again.

With the confidence to say she may be better than Bianca Ryan is 12 year old Erica Marks. Piers buzzes her out pretty quickly. Piers is pretty rude to her and says she’s quite charmless in coming out wanting to be a Bianca Ryan wannabe. It’s a no.
