Lucky guess on 'Wheel of Fortune' is worth $45,000 -- VIDEO

In its many years of syndication, Wheel of Fortune has seen its fair share of amazing puzzle solving. But on last night’s broadcast, a contestant named Emil put most other players to shame.

Emil’s bonus round featured a three word phrase, but when none of his proposed letters showed up on the board, he was left with pretty much nothing to go on. “You’re a very good puzzle solver, but this looks tough to me,” noted host Pat Sajak.

Highs and lows of 'The 100' series premiere

The CW’s latest drama with attractive teens is a post-apocalyptic tale about 100 (hot) delinquents who get ousted from their space home by really horrible adults, then sent to Earth to see if the once radiation-soaked planet is inhabitable again. What unfolds is a Lord of the Flies type rebellion: The teens attempt to establish their own society and cut off communication with their leaders on the Ark (the name they use for their space station home) because, Dude, they sent us here without knowing if it was safe and were totally cool with us dying. So, like, GFY. 

Not all the teens think that way, though. Some of them, like Wells (Eli Goree), whose dad (Isaiah Washington) is Chancellor, and Clarke (Eliza Taylor), the daughter of space doc Abby (Paige Turco), keep in mind the implications of severing communications with the Ark. (If all of their health monitors indicate death, they say, no one will want to come back for them.)

Further complicating matters is the fact that it seems Earth’s newest residents are not alone. There’s something lurking about in the forests where the teens were dropped, and judging by their first encounter, they’re not friendly. And, frankly, that’s exciting. In fact, the introduction of these mysterious beings was one of the best parts of episode 1, which is why they made my list of highs and lows below:

Late Night Highlight: Kristin Cavallari defends her decision not to vaccinate her kids -- VIDEO

Just last week, Fox’s Lisa Kennedy joked with Kristin Cavallari about Jenny McCarthy’s decision not to vaccinate her kids. Then, in an awkward moment viewers won’t soon forget, Cavallari announced that she had also made the decision not to vaccinate.

And last night, on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Kristin Cavallari about her controversial decision. Cavallari said she felt she was doing what’s right for her kids. “There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines,” she said.

Watch Cavallari, who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Jay Cutler, below:

Ex-'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones resurfaces (with a beard!) -- VIDEO

angus-t-jones.jpg

Two and a Half Men‘s Angus T. Jones is back, with more hair than ever before!

A brief refresher: In 2012, a video surfaced in which Jones told viewers not to watch the show Chuck Lorre created (which he had starred on for 10 years). In the wake of the drama, the half-man was downgraded to “recurring” status just before he seemingly disappeared off the face of the Hollywood hills. But now, he’s reemerging… though not in California.

This weekend, Jones sat down with Houston TV station KHOU to talk about what he’s up to now (besides not shaving). Jones, who once played Jake on the hit comedy, is now going to school in Colorado and speaking at Houston church, where he shares his story with other churchgoers. From here on out, he says, the church will remain his focus.

Jones does claim to be “apologetic” about insulting Chuck Lorre’s “baby.” Still, he stands by his earlier statements — and claims he was a “paid hypocrite” while acting on Men. “I don’t regret saying what I said,” he tells KHOU. And when asked if there’s any chance he might return to acting, Jones answers that he’s keeping his mind open to Bible-based stories.

Late Night Highlight: Anderson Cooper thought Seth Meyers was gay when they first met -- VIDEO

In the world of Hollywood, there are a few key places where stars tend to meet for the first time: At a casting call, on a red carpet, at a Whole Foods, or at a gym. And for Seth Meyers and Anderson Cooper, it was a gym.

On Late Night with Seth Meyers, guest Anderson Cooper talked about meeting Meyers at “pretty much the gayest gym on the planet,” which influenced how Cooper saw Meyers. “I assumed you were gay, ’cause there weren’t a lot of other reasons to be there,” Cooper tells the Late Night host.

Watch KTLA anchors experience an earthquake on air -- VIDEO

In case you haven’t heard, a 4.4 earthquake hit Los Angeles earlier this morning — after which Twitter exploded with celeb quips and experiences. But for those of us sitting on less-shaky ground, the experience was nothing but a bunch of 140-character afterthoughts … until now.

Luckily, the KTLA news team was hard at work filming a show when the earthquake hit. In the following video, you can watch as Megan Henderson nearly talks right through the quake, only stopping when co-anchor Chris Schauble has a minor panic attack. The two quickly get under their news desk — clearly they’ve practiced — for a matter of seconds before the quake seems to have passed.

Then, after barely escaping with their lives — there’s bits of ceiling on their desk! — they pass things to Eric Spillman, who really dives into the fascinating logistics of the quake. For example, did you know that about 10 seconds passed between the time it shook Hollywood versus downtown L.A.? To be fair, the man had about two seconds to prepare something to say. But that’s exactly why you’re watching this video — purely to see the panicked look on Schauble’s face, and nothing else.

Google celebrates St. Patrick's Day

Google-Doodle.jpg

Google goes green!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Google’s homepage Doodle features a green stained-glass drawing. The day celebrates Ireland’s most commonly-recognized patron saint, Patrick, who died on March 17, according to tradition.

Stateside, this year’s biggest St. Patrick’s Day news story might be Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announcing that he will not participate in the annual South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade because the event excludes LGBT organizations. (New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio will not march in his local St. Patrick’s Day parade for the same reason.)

Never fear: The Chicago River is still green.

'Jeopardy!' champ Arthur Chu's winning streak ends -- VIDEO

jeopardy-01.jpg

He can’t win ‘em all, apparently. Arthur Chu’s 11-game Jeopardy! winning streak ended Wednesday when he wagered everything on an incorrect Final Jeopardy! answer.

But losing isn’t so bad — Chu is still walking away with his earnings from more successful games, which come to a total of $297,200. Pocket money, you know.

Chu won the third highest of any Jeopardy! contestant, following number one winner Ken Jennings and David Madden at number two. Chu’s success came partly from his strategy of jumping around the game board and finding Daily Doubles before his fellow contestants, which has earned him a villainous reputation — one that he’s embraced.

Matthew McConaughey on the origin of 'Alright, alright, alright' -- VIDEO

After Matthew McConaughey took home an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight decided to post a 2011 interview with the actor. Why? Because it explains the catchphrase that McConaughey has uttered in just about every awards acceptance speech this season: “Alright, alright, alright.”

And now, the interview has caught people’s attention on Reddit. Not surprisingly, post-McConaissance Matthew seems to have a bigger following that the young kid who once made Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.

In the interview, McConaughey discusses getting into character as David Wooderson in his first film, Dazed And Confused. And thanks to a little inspiration from Jim Morrison and a Doors live album, McConaughey uttered the three words that will forever be associated with the raspy-voiced Texan.

Fun fact: There are only three “alrights” because of a math malfunction in McConaughey’s nervous first-time actor brain. Celebs! They’re just like us!
