Since the sad passing of former long-time Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek in 2020, it was obvious that the show would never quite be the same. His distinguished silver hair and propensity to deliver lite sick burns to contestants remained unmatched by any of the sometimes tough-to-watch revolving door of guest hosts that tried their hand at the gig–like NFL player/master virologist Aaron Rodgers and especially Dr. Mehmet Oz. Being an unimpressive game show host and an unimpressive senate hopeful all within such a short period of time? Impressive. LeVar Burton was a fan pick, but decided that the Jeopardy! life wasn’t for him. The show finally gained some temporary stability once Mayim Bialik was given the job of permanent co-host, and Ken Jennings the job of substitute co-host after show executive producer Mike Richards was hired then quickly backed away from his hosting duties on his first day on the job for it being exposed that he’s a certified asshole. Show fans that have been waiting on an announcement of who the permanent hosts will be can most likely get off the edge of their seats now since Mayim and Ken are rumored to have been chosen as the permanent readers of clues.
Lindsay Lohan’s Hollywood comeback (part 1,294) began about a year ago when Netflix gave her a Christmas movie to star in. There are likely many who figured Lindsay’s time with Netflix would end with Netflix scrapping that Christmas movie and demanding Lindsay return the 10lb bag of fake snow she stole from the set. But filming went off without a hitch and Falling for Christmas will drop on Netflix this holiday season. Netflix must have been so impressed with Lindsay’s performance, that they’ve gone ahead and given her two more films to make.
Complex says that a new job has become available, but you won’t find it on LinkedIn. Kid Cudi has taken to Twitter to post a new job opening on his staff. It’s an assistant of sorts but you’d be tasked with assisting with one thing in particular: getting Kid Cudi stoned AF! He’s looking for a professional blunt roller to help him with his day-to-day marijuana rolling. I mean… with this job market, why do we even have college anymore? Although to be fair, I did learn how to roll a joint in college… So I guess the classes just need an update. Time for Blunt Rolling 101![/caption]
Prince Harry Is Now The “Chief Impact Officer” At A Corporate Coaching And Mental Health Tech Start Up
Looks like Prince Harry can forget about trying to file for unemployment because he went and got himself a Jay Oh Bee. Or, more likely, he sat back in a Peter Brady patio chair, courtesy of Oprah Winfrey, batting away offers that didn’t have enough integers in them to sustain his accustomed lifestyle. According to CNN, Harry has accepted a job as “chief impact officer” at a Silicon Valley tech startup called BetterUp which provides “coaching and mental health services to clients” that normal people probably can’t afford. The company’s CEO Alexi Robichaux says that Harry has “a meaningful and meaty role.” Excuse me, it’s spelled R-O-L-L! Jesus, you’d think CNN would spell check their shit before it goes to print.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can let out a huge sigh of relief today. Because no longer do they have to stress about awkwardly changing the subject when one of their new neighbors asks, “So what is it that you do for work?” For a long time, Harry and Meghan have been – ahem – between jobs, due to COVID-19 messing up their ability to make some money from those lucrative speaking engagements they were hoping to land after stepping down as senior royals. But Harry and Meghan are officially employed people, thanks to a multi-project deal with Netflix.
That could be you handwriting a Dlisted post! (Although, all of us wish we had the poetic writing skills of the reincarnation of Jane Austen that is Katie Price.)
Mieka, one of our writers who produces the important newsworthy food your brain needs, is taking a piece of the summer off from posting here, and the podcast I first talked about sixty-five hundred years ago is coming soon, so we need a little extra help around here. I’m looking for someone who really wants to know what it feels like for your brain cells to shrivel while covering Kanye’s latest tweets. I’m also looking for a writer who is really into pop culture foolery, knows how to put a sentence together (“So what you’re saying is I must have something you don’t?” – you), has daytime weekday availability, and must take a vow to never say a bad word about Our Patron Saint Phoebe Price.
If you’re interested, send your info, including what time zone you’re in, and a writing sample to email@example.com. It is a paying gig, and I promise you’ll never hear me say, “The check is good!“, after your paycheck bounces. I’ll make Allison say it.
