We know Ellen Degeneres is heading off to Australia very soon after she "pulled an Oprah" and surprised her audience with tickets down under. Now, it seems the talk show host is trying to start a new trend. Koalaing!
Planking has come and gone, "owling" has come and gone, and now we are witness to a new craze of making like the cute and cuddly Australian marsupials. Just like a koala hangs out in gum trees, one person latches on to another with all 4 limbs; wrapping arms and legs around the person. It looks ridiculous, but we imagine it would make for great photo ops. (side note: koalas are not as friendly as they look).
Are you already facing some serious Downton Abbey withdrawal? Well, if you are, we've found the perfect antedate! Zicasso has created a customizable Downton Abbey vacation that will bring you deep into the world of the Crawleys.
Highlights of the trip include a private guided tour of Highclere Castle, the real Downton Abbey, as well as the filming locations for Downton Village, St. Mary's Church, and Downton Place, a chance to experience the real "upstairs downstairs" workings of a historic mansion at Shugborough Hall, a visit to Blenheim Palace, the childhood home of Winston Churchill, afternoon tea at London's Goring Hotel, and an optional two-night excursion to Scotland's Inveraray Castle.
A real life Central Perk, the cafe where Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, and Chandler hung out on Friends, has finally openedbut not where you'd expect.
A replica of the famous '90s coffee shop has been constructed in a Beijing apartment complex by Friends super-fan Du Xin (aka "Gunther" to his friends) who says, “for me, it’s like a religion. It’s my life.”
The third and final installment of An Idiot Abroad ended with Karl Pilkington and Warwick Davis making their way to China where they dressed in panda costumes, sampled local cuisine, and took a side trip to Macao.
Their Chinese journey started with a Yangtze River Cruise which Karl loathed, calling it "misty" and describing the boat as having "turds everywhere." Not exactly the rave recommendation the Yangtze River tourism board was probably hoping for.
Continuing their journey in the footsteps of Marco Polo, Karl and Warwick made their way to India on this week's episode of An Idiot Abroad 3.
They started out with a little Laughter Yoga, which Karl described as more of a "yelp." When asked what make him laugh in his everyday life, he told a story about seeing a baby fall out of a stroller that on;y he would find amusing.
For the third and final season of An Idiot Abroad, Ricky Gervais is sending his buddy Karl Pilkington in the footsteps of Marco Polo, who spent three years traveling from Venice to China in the 13th Century. And, this time, Ricky decided to give Karl a travel companion, Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis. They're about to have "the adventure of a lifetime, whether they like it or not."
In Saturday's season premiere, Pilkington and Davis start out in Venice, where Karl decides that living "in water" just "doesn't work." After checking into their hotel and navigating Venice's long alleyways like "Pac Man," Warwick and Karl spend a day in St. Mark's Square which Karl, who once longed for his travels to be more like vacations, complained that Warwick was treating the trip "too much like a holiday."

Seems that when anyone scores tickets to some talk show, the chance they walk away with swag are high. About a week ago, Ellen played the perfect philanthropic TV personality and gave her audience a huge trip to Australia as part of her own trip down under in March.
We've seen it all before, talk show host announces a free trip to Australia and the audience goes absolutely bananas with screams of joy and free-flowing tears. The scene wasn't too dissimilar to Oprah's announcement in 2010.

Emeril Lagasse is taking a break from his day job in New Orleans and hitting the road for a new series, Emeril's Florida.
The famous TV chef will crisscross the Sunshine State to find its best cuisine. “Florida is not only about theme parks and water slides,” Lagasse said. “Sure we’ve got a little bit of that, but we’ve really mixed it up here, we’re following wine, food and farmers.”

We’re still in a little bit of shock over the pictures offered up by American Airlines showing off their new 777-300ER airplane. We’ll eventually get over the fact that it’s American Airlines who's about to fly these new beauties rather some international carrier, but until then we’ll just let their marketing team go to work on us.
If you’ve ever seen Jimmy Kimmel Live you’re probably somewhat familiar with Guillermo. Well he's now working overtime as a pitchman for American Airlines, doing his late-night thing in a couple new commercials for American Airlines.
The third season of Ricky Gervais' An Idiot Abroad is already airing in the UK, but here in the US we have to wait until January 19th to see Karl Pilkington's latest on-the-road antics.
For the show's third installment, which consists of a mere three episodes, Karl doesn't suffer alone. Ricky has sent along his pal and Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis. The pair follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo, traveling from Italy to China, for the shortened season.
