Ox Notes: May 2, 2008

Several of the Dancing with the Stars pros will perform at tonight’s Race to Erase MS benefit in California, and Entertainment Tonight interviewed the pros as they rehearsed their routine.

Extra interviewed a shirtless Mario Lopez as he took promo shots for his new book, Mario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness.

As part of Tuesday night’s DwtS 100th episode special, Apolo Anton Ohno & Julianne Hough and Mel B & Maksim Chmerkovskiy will dance to performances by country music stars Rascal Flatts.

Part of Project Runway 6 — the show’s first season on Lifetime — will take place in Los Angeles.

Speaking of L.A., many TV and film crew members are still having trouble finding work, months after the writers strike ended.

I’m not sure if Smallville will be the same without Lex Luthor.

Senator Barack Obama presented the Top 10 List on The Late Show with David Letterman last night. Number 10 is my favorite.

(Survivor spoiler alert)

Reality Blurred has a recap of last night’s Survivor, and CBS.com has some illuminating videos from the Ponderosa. Eliza, Ozzy, and Jason were shocked when James — IV bag in tow — joined them on the jury bench, because James had to spend his first several days in hospital after he was removed from the game. They hadn’t been told about his removal before Tribal Council.

Based on Eliza’s and Ozzy’s reactions when Alexis got to Ponderosa, Parvati overestimated Alexis’s chances of winning $1 million. Both favorites took offense to Alexis’s assertion that she never lied in the game, calling her "delusional."

At least Alexis won’t be among enemies at Ponderosa for long. If she doesn’t have Immunity, is there any way that Natalie survives the next vote?
