Ben Lyons gives 30 "See Its"
There are two types of people in this world--those who think that Ben Lyons' skills as a critic are overused and those who think they are underused. There appears to be no middle ground. To the latter category, which already includes not only ABC/Disney but also the American Film Institute and Microsoft, you can now add the New York Jets.
Ben was invited by the New York Jets to judge the tryouts for their cheerleading squad--AKA The Flight Crew--and help select the 30 finalists, according to this report and this one.
This puts a bit of a different spin on Ben's recent criticism of the movie Every Little Step, in which he said, "Maybe it’s the fact that American Idol . . . we see people audition every night. The idea of auditioning is not really interesting in a documentary.” Of course, you can only vote in American Idol via text message, but his apparent preference for voting in person would be perhaps the only occasion where he prefers to NOT use his cell phone.
But if ogling women in relative privacy were not enough, E! has posted "exclusive" video of Ben gushing over "opposite marriage" supporter Carrie Prejean in her underwear during an appearance she made as a model on the network in 2008. I'll give you the link if you are terribly interested but maintain the dignity of this as the only blog in the blogosphere which has not published scantily clad pictures of her.
Stay classy, Ben Lyons.
