Welcome to the program with NOTHING to hide everyone, I'm Eila Adams! Lots to look forward to today, including your weekend recap in sports, some headlines courtesy of popular guest anchor Meghan, and an ALL ACCESS edition of Turn It Up with Carli Bei. But we're starting off with what'll be my FINAL report from the Pan Am Games!
It was an unforgettable 17 days and I have to admit I'm kinda bummed it's all over. Pan Am 2015 was a huge success for the city! To cap things off, I wanted to ask people about their favorite moments from this year's event!
Certainly no shortage of memorable moments. The buzz in Toronto TODAY is all about the Olympics. After a stellar Pan Am showcase, many feel the time is right to bring the world's greatest athletic event to Canada's largest city. If it's going to happen for the 2024 games, organizers will need to submit a bid by mid-September. Okay, now for one final Pan Am update we'll send you over to Carli Bei!
Thanks Eila! It was tough luck for the hometown team on the track at the 4 by 100 men's relay! The Canadians looked like favorites to win gold - and it looked like they DID. Instead, they wound up getting disqualified because one of their runners stepped on the line in the first leg. That gave the gold to the US, which they also won on the women's side. What a way to cap things off!
And the games went out with a real bang on Sunday night in Toronto! Thousands of fans packed into the Rogers Centre to bid the athletes a fond farewell, and to party at a star-studded event including the likes of Pitbull and yes, Kanye West. Despite a petition of more than 55-thousand people to keep Kanye from performing, the hip hop star delivered the goods to a raucous crowd. He played 8 songs in 13 minutes, but ironically, his final song was cut short due to a mic problem. I guess organizers didn't want to let him finish.
That's all I've got. We'll wrap up with a FINAL look at the medal standings from the 2015 Pan Am Games!
President Obama continued his African tour Monday, stopping in Ethiopia. This is the first time a serving American president has visited the African nation, despite its position as a strong US ally. Items to be discussed include security issues, as well as concerns about Ethiopia’s troubling record on human rights. The President is scheduled to address the entire 54-member African Union on Tuesday. Controversial Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe will not be in attendance.
Presidential wannabe Donald Trump is coming up TRUMPS at the polls! The Republican candidate has 18 percent support from GOP-leaning voters according to a new CNN/ORC poll. This puts him ahead of former Florida governor Jeb Bush's 15 percent. Even better news for Trump, he is leading in the key swing state of Iowa at a whopping 21 percent! Despite his impressive numbers, the majority of Republicans still believe that Bush will be the GOP nominee in 2016.
Car giant Fiat Chrysler has been slapped with a record 105 MILLION dollar fine. US federal safety regulators imposed the massive penalty on the US-Italian company for repeated failures to carry out safety recalls. The fine covers 23 separate safety recalls and more than 11 million vehicles. Terms of the judgment could force Chrysler to buy back as many as 1 point 5 MILLION vehicles, or to offer owners a financial incentive to have their vehicle fixed. From the Naked Newsroom, I'm Meghan!
Nicely done Meghan! She'll be back later, but up next we have Madison Banes, who's this week's Naked Foodie. So what's this about a new kind of seaweed that tastes like bacon? Seriously?
I kid you not Eila. It's a red seaweed called "dulse", and not only does it have a bacon flavor, it's delicious, healthy and sustainable. It's like the kale of seaweed except better.
It almost sounds too good to be true. So it's more nutritious then kale and tastes like bacon? I haven't even heard the story yet and I'm sold!
Ahh, but it gets even better! Here's the story. Dulse has twice the nutritional value of kale, with TONS of protein. It's currently mainly available at health food stores at pretty high prices but Oregon State University wants to change that! Researchers there are developed a new, faster-growing strain, and are studying how to farm it on a large scale in tanks, rather than open water. That'll ensure it's free of ocean pollutants. They envision Oregon becoming the center of a multi-billion-dollar dulse industry. If it really tastes like bacon, I bet they're right!
A new study from the University of Illinois says that full-service restaurant meals are just as bad for you as fast-food meals. The study, involving 18 thousand adults, over 8 years, showed that when people eat out, either at a restaurant or fast food chain, they take in an average of 200 more calories then they would if they were to cook at home. Also, regardless of where people eat out, they take in more fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium then those who cook at home. Time to buy some groceries.
Decidedly UNhealthy are most of the items on McDonald's "Secret Menu"! A Mickey D manager revealed on Reddit that customers CAN adapt their offerings to create special combinations that don't appear on the regular menu - for a price. Examples are the "McKinley Mac", which substitutes a pair of Quarter Pounder patties for the usual Big Mac patties, and the "Land, Sea, and Air Burger", combining a Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, and McChicken. Ugh. Let's keep that one secret!
Hungry people in Shanghai will soon be able to enjoy fresh-cooked beef noodles from vending machines - in just two minutes! Customers select their flavor on a touchscreen, and the noodles are cooked on demand. The machines will roll out across the city in October, but a second generation that also offers rice and beverages is expected to follow. Vending machines are very common in China, with some reports saying there's one for every twenty three people!
The four finalists for Lay's "Do Us A Flavor" chip competition have been announced! And they sound REALLY good. They're Greektown Gyro, Truffle Fries, Southern Biscuits and Gravy, and New York Reuben. Chip fans can vote for their favorite through the DoUsAFlavor.com website. The lucky people who suggested the four finalists each win fifty thousand dollars, and the winner will win a MILLION dollars or one percent of the flavor's net sales, whichever is more. Looks like I've got some taste-testing to do! For Naked News, I'm Madison Banes. Bon appetit!

After 21 grueling stages, British cyclist Chris Froome is your 2015 Tour de France champion! Froome had been all but guaranteed victory after the penultimate stage, and got to enjoy his final ride through the Champs Elysees toward the finish line, riding arm in arm with his Team Sky teammates. It was Froome's second Tour de France win - he also won cycling's most famous race in 2013.
Four baseball legends were inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this weekend! Ace pitchers Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, and Randy Johnson were joined by infielder Craig Biggio for the ceremony in Cooperstown New York. At least 40-thousand fans were on hand to cheer on their heroes one last time. Congratulations gentlemen!
And it looks like the Kansas City Royals are going all in on their shot to win a World Series! The Royals have landed star pitcher Johnny Cueto in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds. Kansas City sent three left-handed pitching prospects to the Reds for Cueto. It was a price they were happy to pay to land a pitcher they believe will lead their rotation into the playoffs.
Make it THREE in a row now for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch! His amazing run continued at the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday. After coming back from some nasty leg injuries Busch has now won 4 of the last 5 Sprint Cup events. Despite missing the first 11 races of the year, he's now just 23 points outside of the top 30, which would qualify him for the playoffs and a shot at the championship.
The NFL is still mulling over its decision on Tom Brady's suspension appeal, but it's just announced new rules to avoid another Deflategate fiasco. From now on, two crew members will be assigned to look after game balls and make sure they are properly inflated at all times. All balls will be measured and then re-read at halftime to ensure there's no funny business.
That's the final buzzer on THIS edition of Naked Sports! I'm Natasha Olenski, and I'll see YOU next time!
Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, passed away Sunday. The 22-year-old had been a medically-induced coma since being found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub last January. Family members moved Bobbi to a hospice last month, after her condition began to deteriorate even further. Bobbi had reportedly struggled with drugs and mental health issues ever since the death of her mother in 2012.
Snoop Dogg has vowed to never return to Sweden after being held for suspected drug use. Strict anti-drug laws mean that it is illegal to even be high in the Scandinavian country, let along be in possession of narcotics. Snoop was picked up after playing a concert Saturday night. Swedish police questioned the rapper and carried out a urine test, before releasing him without issue. Snoop took to Twitter to vent his frustrations, calling the actions “racial profiling”.
The Las Vegas Cosmopolitan hotel has re-opened its pool just 24 hours after a fire broke out. Two people were injured, while hundreds had to be evacuated from the hotel when the blaze started Saturday around noon. Early reports indicate that lighting on artificial palm trees surrounding the pool could have helped to spread the flames. The Bamboo pool was back in service Sunday by 10 am with full service, except for the bar. Only in Vegas, people! With all your headlines from the Naked Newsroom, I'm Meghan!
Thanks again Meghan. The headlines are done but we're not! Up next, Carli Bei gets together with the guys from Fault of Mine for a special ALL ACCESS edition of Turn It Up!
Great interview there from Carli. All right, it's time to announce the winner of this week's caption contest. The pic was OF Carli peering into our dunk tank, and there were plenty of entries for us to choose from. Our favorite came from Alan Benjamin Valkowitz, with "I think I found Nemo".
Good one, Alan! Send us a private message on Facebook and we'll get your prize out as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who entered. There's a NEW contest up now, so give us our best and YOU could win!
We have a sensational week coming up for you. We've got a fresh new audition by a lovely lady named Kat. We'll have to change that if she sticks around, because I don't think Ms. Curtis will want to share. But that'll be up to you - watch and let us know how you think she did. We also have the full coverage of our Pan Am Games Water Gun Challenge, which was a blast. And maybe best of all, we're planning plenty of time shooting at the beach if the weather cooperates. So you're definitely going to want to watch every day.
As always, if you want to get hold of us, you can email email@example.com, or catch us on social media - we've got Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Thanks everyone for watching - see you back here again tomorrow. Take care!
