Bodypainting's not Dead......yet.....

(think eHarmony is out of tune? Rock on with The perfect melody for any Disney fan, even if you're not.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-North building, here is the man about games, Pierre Kelly.

Me: You've just hit you head, fell into a hole known as GSN The Know. It's neither an animal nor a's a blog, dummy. But GSN is what you call a party animal while eating on your Fish o filet sandwich. So put the dog out in the yard, put away your Sweet & spicy Doritios and listen to a human animal feed your GSN mind in.....

   The Starting Line.

It's more of.....

Door 3: The Closing of a Door.

(song fades out)

With September of 2015 in tow, Lauren Elise joined Door 3 and the School girl edition of 4 Facts, ! Lie had these stats. Numberator:

Over 200 likes were oppsed to 3000 dislikes. 3000 thumbs going down. Hmmm......what did they not like about the new host? The Taylor Swift one she did had 300 dislikes. A little better but that sealed death. The last true video with variety was...........this.

That was the nail in the coffin and next week, we'll give you the aftermath, but back to its death. Loryn Powell left the company when this came on Facebook....

"Industry friends: my role as senior producer/head writer/host of age-restricted challenge videos has come to an end. Do you or someone you know need a potty-mouthed blonde with butter-knife sharp wit and the comedic timing of Michelle Tanner? My expertise include writing inappropriate jokes that will probably get cut and making the sound guy uncomfortable when putting on my mic. I am also fluent in millennial speak and can seamlessly work phrases such as "Bye Felicia", "on fleek", and "truffle butter" into any conversation."

Everybody else did leave temporarily to the unemployement line especially Lauren who automatically left that month, but the real story came from Trisha Paytas. She of course, was the Sexpert, but our cameras went into our home and here's what happened to it.

That was it for Door 3. Next week, the aftermath and what the fans thought.

After this timeout, we reveal the Skin Wars 3 contestants. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll take my pet pterodactyl Dragon for a fly around midtown Grimsborough and land on Checkers for lunch. You watch this.

Oh hi, our interns came to lunch at Paula's Place and nothing was horrifying while we were gone.

With Skin Wars approaching 4/20, the lineup looks likes this.....

    There goes your lineup. Who will join Natalie Fletcher and Lana Chromium as Skin Wars champion?

    Chain Reaction is dead. For now at least. Like The Pyramid, it tried to be like its first version, but viewers seemed to find the lack of it interesting, plus the betting chain killed it. Hope it'll spend the afterlife in the afternoon hours.

    Pi Day was this past Monday and TPIR celebrated it in fashion. Watch.

    Not long ago in the pre-GSN era, a couple of ladies admire a classic Pyramid host. You'll will see it around the 7-minute mark and let me know what you think.

    What's in a Name?

    And finally, Steve Harvey takes on another person........named Steve Harvey. Confused? Well, it'll be on the Meredith Viera show soon.

    Now the 2nd intermission presented by It's hard to move out of a small town and go into a big metropolis. Paytra Gessler moved out of Toledo, Ohio into New York City in her teens. She's a fitness freak as you may now, but she is a singer & songwriter. Here is one of them.

    And as an extra added bonus, she nails an instrumental medley.

    Now we go to the 3rd period.

    Why is GSN a younger-skewing network? Well, GSN's median viewer age is down to 59, according to David Goldhill yesterday (President and CEO of GSN). Back then, 65 was the median. Family Feud, Idiotest and Skin Wars helped that, and Hellevator lowered the boom. Not only that, the numbers keep rising from younger ages. With Idiotest and Skin Wars on the way next month, the numbers may continue to repeat like it did the last 2 seasons they tried. This includes specials for Idiotest and their new Fresh Paint series for Skin Wars. Obviously, The Chase and Chain Reaction were skewing older like the morning classics. Why? Because GSN is getting the picture in getting younger viewers like Spike and USA. Will that continue?

    Time to go fly some model drones. Our blog is presented by America's next top autistic model. Just when they thought America's Next Top Model was done for good, Tyra Banks makes a triumphant return to the popular network TV series, only this time, 18 models compete for a spot to see who'll be the new face of the Autism Speaks foundation and ambassador of the charity. Mentally Insane! Mentally challenged! Mentally fun! Coming sooner than you think on The CW.
