THE WORLD IS ENDING AND E!'S "THE SOUP" TOLD YOU SO!
Tune-In For "'The Soup' - End of the World 'We Told You So' Spectacular" With Host Joel McHale And More Than 20 Celebrity Guests Who Join Forces to Perform an Original Song on Wednesday, December 12th at 10pm ET/PT on E!
Los Angeles, CA, December 13, 2012 - The end of the world was predicted by the Mayans. It has been anticipated for thousands of years in religious texts. And now it is written on your DVR channel guide for all eternity, because E!'s outrageously funny clip show, "The Soup" is doing an entire episode dedicated to the day of doom and what brought the end to fruition. Why trust Joel McHale and the rest of "The Soup" team on what brought on Armageddon? Simply, they've been telling you so all along (or at least for the last eight years)! From Honey Boo Boo, Danny Bonaduce and the awkwardly scripted drama on "The Hills" to every season of "Celebrity Rehab," "The Bachelor," and "Housewives of Everywhere," the signs have been there and we have been calling them out weekly. So batten down the hatches, forget Christmas shopping, pour yourself a shot of Tila Tequila and tune-in to "'The Soup' - End of the World 'We Told You So' Spectacular" on Wednesday, December 19th at 10pm ET/PT on E!
"We at the Soup are thankful that the Mayans made this calendar a couple thousand years ago so we could have an excuse to re-show some of the greatest clips in the history of reality television. We're so thankful I've been dressed like a Mayan High priestess for the last two weeks." Says "The Soup" host Joel McHale.
Famine ("Top Model" contestants), pestilence (heiresses), lawlessness (Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, Lindsay Lohan), the signs have all been right in front of our tabloid TV watching faces but only "The Soup" has truly seen it. Now, the show that brings you the best of the worst TV clips of the week, will be celebrating the highlights in pop culture that have led to 12/21/12's end of the world. In addition to naming our very own four horse-men of the Apocalypse, Joel will be placing the most damning evidence of how humanity engineered its own demise into a time capsule to be shot in to space, so when aliens discover our solar system they will know we were here, know how we blew it and maybe get a good scare when they see Brigitte Neilson.
And as if that weren't enough, to welcome Judgment Day with open arms, we are personally extending our favorite reality stars' 15-minutes of fame by inviting them to join together in song and a music video performance of "The Soup's" original tune, "We Killed The World." Favorite faces contributing to what is sure to be a Grammy contender (*if the world doesn't end) include: Gretchen Rossi ("Real Housewives of Orange Country"), Sanjaya Malakar ("American Idol"), Charlie O'Connell ("Bachelor"), Tiffany 'New York' Pollard ("I Love New York"), Ron Jeremy ("The Surreal Life," "The Surreal Life: Fame Games"), Shangela ("RuPaul's Drag Race," "Toddlers & Tiaras," "Dance Moms"), Slade Smiley ("Real Housewives of Orange County"), Brace Land ("Giglos"), Domenico Nesci ("Shot of Love"), Jerri Manthey ("Survivor"), Jonathan Novack ("Bachelor"), Kalon McMahon ("Bachelorette"), Leilene 'Smiley' Steuklin ("Flavor of Love"), Madison Hildebrand ("Million Dollar Listing"), Marc Marceuse ("Average Joe"), Molly Shea ("Sunset Tan"), Becky Buck Wild ("Flavor of Love"), Rob Cesternino ("Survivor"), and more!
