Couch Potato

Has anyone watched the show called “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” on Astro’s Starworld? Don’t you think the kids are just so smart? Plus they’re so adorable especially Kyle, the one with glasses. He’s my favourite. I just wanna pinch his cheeks! Hehehe…Another favourite of mine is Alana but she can be very cocky sometimes.

Watching the show makes me wonder whether Americans are that dumb. I’m not saying all Americans are dumb (well, maybe just the ones who voted for President Bush in the last election) but the answers that they gave on the show are just so stupid sometimes. One guy even had to think for a couple of secs when asked what is 5 X 2. I mean come on!


Do you guys watch American Idol 7? Who’s your favourite Idol? I’m rooting for David Cook. He is such a talented and versatile performer. When he sang Mariah Carey’s Always be My Baby and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Music of the Night, I had tears in my eyes and goosebumps all over my body! But I know for sure he won’t win because Americans are voting for David Archuleta right now. He is a good singer no doubt but he’s not a performer or at least not as versatile as Cook. He sings ballads really well but that’s about it. To me it doesn’t matter who wins AI because I know Cook will land himself a record deal, just like Daughtry did. I mean have you heard of Taylor Hicks since he won AI? Or even Blake Lewis? Yeah they made an album but Hicks got cut off from his record label because of poor album sales.

So I’m definitely rooting for David Cook.



Hubby and I are also hooked on Channel 703 esp. the Restaurant Makeover show and Miami Ink and LA Ink on Channel 707. The tattoo designs are really good. If Muslims could have tattoos I would definitely have one. I think la. Errrmm…it’s not that painful right? Hehehe…

I watch too much TV coz all these programmes are my fave! I like Kyle too, and that gorgeous black girl (donno what her name is). I'm rooting for Brooke, though Carly was good too - damn she goot booted.

Tattoo, woohoo!!! I'd love me some butterfly on a white lily - too bad!

Taylor Hicks terminated his contract due to the record company and producers breaching the contract. If going platinum (*without* them giving him any radio airplay I might add) is considered bad record sales then thats news to me. he has recently finished two sold out tours and is currently working on releasing two albums and a live DVD. Pleasse get your facts straight before you post something about someone.

Pieces Man - A lot of ppl have given the same comments. Hehehe..Ive disabled it for a while..well, at least until i find the next song im crazy about :)

Lynn - Hahaha..u and me both! The black girl's name is Alana..i was rooting for Carly, Brooke and Amanda Overmyer but they were not that consistent la..too bad!

Valerie - Ahem..excuse me ya. First of all this is my blog. And if I wanna say TH is a bad singer then ive the right to say so. Thts my personal opinion.

Ive read in one of the entertainment site that the reason the contract was terminated was becoz of poor album sales. I AM NOT a taylor hicks fan so i dont see the point of researching the reason why his contract was terminated in the first place.

Since ure obviously a TH fan so Ill just take your word tht he was the one who terminated his contract. I still think he doesnt deserve to be the winner. Again, it's my own personal opinion :)

Nak tattoo tak susah la. Nowaday they have the stick-on type punya. Banyak design pulak tu. So tak payah sakit-sakit pun bole dapat tattoo.

I cannot understand tattoos la. Kalau for fashion, oh puhleez, if everyweek I feel like changing handbag, I'm sure rasa fed up after a while ngan design. And kalau sebab keepign a memory or love alive, oh puhleez, you are just finding a way to avoid facing reality.

Anyway, you can always buy the 'singam' (chewing gum) with the water applied tattoos, haha.

East43St - Hahaha..stick ons tak macho la bruder :P Nanti kena air abis la...But i dont think im the sort yang will get one la..tak tahan sakit kena cucuk dek needle...hehehe

Anon - Maybe u should try and watch the show first and understand reasons why ppl get tattoos. Mmg la sometimes the reasons are corny but some are quite valid :)

LA and Miami Ink are my favourite too.

I like tatoos. If I could have one, I wanna have some on my forehead. Not in the middle lah, but right beneath the anak2 rambut, ala-ala Egyptian beauty gitu. Hihihi.

If you watch any other game shows yang tanya-tanya soklan pengetahuan am nih, almost 90% of the questions are based on primary school syllabus. So, 'Are u smarter than a 5th grader?' is nothing new except for the concept of having school kids saving your money.

The questions asked in 'Who wants to be a millionaire' dulu pun lebih kurang macam ni gak.

The Pisces Man said...

I'm baacckkk.. hehehee..

Yeah, I do watch 'Smarter' and AI.

On 'Smarter', it always occurs to me how difficult these American kids have to endure even from their early stages of learning.. I mean, compare what they learn during the 1st grade with what our Malaysian 6-year old kids learn. Not that I want to salute the Western world so highly or anything (since they are worse when it comes to social problems), but those who make it out there, no wonder they are smart and their countries are well developed. I mean, I'm judging my experience based on my 'kwailo' university mates last time.

That guy who pondered for a few seconds on the question '2x5' - no, he's not that stupid. In fact, he won USD 100 k.

The question was not directly on 2x5, it was on a far more complex Mathematical equation or some Science subject formula (can't recall exactly what the question was). I too found the question rather difficult. When he froze after saying 2x5, that was part of solving the problem and his mind was actually trying to figure out the answer. Poor guy, our t.v. made him look like an idiot, hahaha.

David Cook - definitely! A talented musician-cum-performer-cum-song writer.

David A - untuk gadis hingusan? Hehhehee...

David Cook has my vote, too.

Monster Mom said...

I didn't watch the Idols n LA Ink anymore...
Only 24, House, CSI and the new Chuck...
That's why Islam tak kasi tattoo, ada sebabnya which I doesn't really wanna elaborate...hihihi...
Hv a nice day

Babe, the older contestants in “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” show were selected based on their IQ. The dumber, the better! It is afterall, a reality show!
