Ox Notes: October 10, 2008

After her appearance on Good Morning America yesterday, Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke addressed her weight with two other media outlets. She’s featured in the latest edition of People Magazine, which hit stores today. And Jann Carl interviewed the dancer for Entertainment Tonight.

ET also has video from the set of the Samantha Who? season premiere, which features a cameo by DwtS pro Mark Ballas. The new season debuts on Monday, October 13.

DwtS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba wears a sexy getup in a new print ad for PETA.

An MSNBC article answers all of your important questions about Survivor, like, "What kind of personal hygiene items do the contestants have access to?"

Regarding last night’s episode of Survivor: Gabon, are you as amazed as I am that three contestants as useless as Ken, Crystal and GC have the amount of power they have? I can’t blame them for wanting to survive until the two tribes merge, but they may be the only Fang members who do, assuming they keep voting out their strongest members.

ABC renewed I Survived a Japanese Game Show for a second season. I really liked this summer show, with its Amazing Race-like culture shock elements. Here’s hoping that, with a few tweaks, the show becomes a legitimate hit.

ABC also picked up a remake of the 1983 sci-fi miniseries V. Amazon sells the complete miniseries on DVD in case, like me, you missed it when it originally aired.

Sci Fi announced the details of five original movies in the works for the network, including one about a living gargoyle and another based on the Jersey Devil legend.

People has an interview with recently auf’d Project Runway 5 designer Jerell. The magazine also posted a photo of the Alexander McQueen dress that the judges said resembled the wedding dress Kenley designed for this week’s challenge. Kenley’s fooling herself if she can’t see the similarities.

Bravo finally launched an online store featuring items created by Project Runway designers Chloe Dao, Kara Janx, Malan Breton, and Laura Bennett. But you have to watch a video interview with each designer to see which items they have for sale, and bad lighting makes it hard to tell the color of certain items.

As the video plays, you can click on an item as it is modeled to see pricing info and add it to your shopping cart. The technology is cool, but it’s an inconvenient way to shop for clothes. Show me the items first, and then let me watch the video to see how the clothes look when worn by a model.
