E!'S JOEL MCHALE TAKES ON POP CULTURE MYTHS, RUMORS AND MORE WITH TONGUE-IN-CHEEK INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING IN NEW COMEDY SPIN-OFF "THE SOUP INVESTIGATES"

"The Soup Investigates" Premieres Wednesday, June 19th at 10:30pm ET/PT Following a New Episode of "The Soup" at 10pm ET/PT on E!

Los Angeles, CA, June 13, 2013 - For more than a decade, E!'s popular comedy franchise "The Soup" has entertained the pop culture cynic in all of us by mocking, dissecting and highlighting the most shameful moments in television and pop culture. From cringe worthy make out sessions at the Jersey Shore to Anderson Cooper's school girl giggle to Honey Boo Boo in all her glory, "The Soup" has been there every step of the way. But now, "The Soup" team, led by host Joel McHale, will delve deeper into the Hollywood vortex to examine pop culture mysteries, celebrity rumors and the shocking questions that entertainment fans never thought to ask... and probably shouldn't have. The new spin-off special "The Soup Investigates" premieres Wednesday, June 19th at 10:30pm ET/PT on E! following a new episode of "The Soup" at 10pm ET/PT.

How DOES that rose get from the grower's field to The Bachelor's hand just in time for the all-important rose ceremony? What do people, like Tila Tequila, really keep in their storage lockers? And how deep does the "Beliebers" dedication to their main man run? Host Joel McHale and our investigative reporters will be working around the clock to get to the truth by probing, penetrating and thrusting themselves into any and all forbidden places, shady sources, and promising leads. The hot topics being covered in "The Soup Investigates" include:

The Journey of a Rose - Correspondent Michael Kosta traces the dramatic path of one of reality TV's most enduring symbols: the rose from "The Bachelor." From a manure-caked greenhouse to its ultimate destination at a picturesque rental mansion in Agoura Hills - we follow a lone rose from humble beginnings, to its moment in the spotlight... to its bittersweet end as a stagehand scoops it out of a pool filter and tosses it in the trash.

Packed Full of Crap - Recently, a former star of A&E's "Storage Wars" sued the production for allegedly faking the results of the show's reliably profitable dumpster diving excursions. And frankly, we were shocked - shocked that it took this long for people to realize it's not all real. Our correspondent Sarah Tiana now goes inside to examine real-life storage space exposés - only to find out that in the real world, it's just a lot of water-stained newspapers, long-forgotten lawn furniture, and old pornography. Lots and lots of old pornography. And to cap it all off, we'll unveil the contents of a storage locker belonging to none other than Tila Tequila - a once-in-a-lifetime television event sure to burn its way into your memory, and also your soul.

Beliebe It... or Not? - Canadian pop wunderkind Justin Bieber has made headlines for being late onstage, and - once he gets there - either vomiting or losing consciousness. Have any of these antics put a dent in tween girls' adoration for Biebs? And just how deep does their dedication run? Our correspondent Eli Olsberg will sit down with a focus group of teenage Bieber fans, and - using the latest in age progression technology - proceed to educate, enlighten, and horrify them with a glimpse at the haunting visage of Bieber future.

Talk about enlightenment! Next time a desperate-to-be-famous whiney college co-ed doesn't not receive a rose on "The Bachelor," you (most likely alone on your couch with your cat) will congratulate her because you know the shoes that rose has walked in. From Joel's mouth to pop culture connoisseurs' ears, "The Soup Investigates" promises to deliver the truth - or die trying!

Don't miss "The Soup Investigates" premiering Wednesday, June 19th at 10:30pm ET/PT, following an all-new episode of "The Soup" at 10pm ET/PT only on E!
