For me, 
figure skating, yes, is a sport, 
and you have to fight. 
But the most important thing 
was to create four minutes, five minutes, 
for my audience to forget the world 
and just look at something 
that was...

Johnny's seven-day auction 
of skating and fashion memorabilia
IS LIVE NOW on Linda's Stuff! 
A portion of the proceeds will go
to the Trevor Project. 
For a look at Johnny wearing some 
of the items, please see this blog post.

Johnny's in the January 11 edition of Entertainment Weekly!, in which Guy and Rachael offer their take on the premiere episode of Celebrity Cook-Off Season 2. Of his sparkly and I'll-do-it-my-way-thank-you team member, Guy says:

 Now, if you told me Johnny wanted to become a professional skydiver or was going to learn to speak seven languages, I'd buy it. This dude is awesome. He went into it with a lot of passion. Honey truffle sauce is a big jump for a first episode—it may not be my first idea—but that's the beauty of it. If you were told you couldn't fly, would you do it?

Thanks to Julie Horowitz for alerting me to this article!

Well, you've heard of him now, haven't you, Jack....?

We continue to battle Chilli's fans, who outnumber us on Twitter alone by more than 3-to-1, and for a while yesterday we saw Johnny drop to 30% (though still maintaining first place), while Chilli surged ahead of Hines Ward to 24%. Thanks to the valiant efforts of overnight voters, though, Johnny's back up to 32% as of this writing:

So please KEEP VOTING and show Food Network that they made an excellent choice in drawing viewers by inviting Johnny to participate in the show!! You can vote 10x a day from every computer and mobile device. DO IT DO IT DO IT.

And once again, here's what we have to look forward to on this Sunday's episode:

Bonus pic!! Photo tweeted by Johnny: 
"Thank you to my wonderful fans 
in Japan! I love you!"

Reminder: Johnny is performing in Stars on Ice: Japan Tour 2013 this weekend in Tokyo, and TV-Tokyo is expected to broadcast the show on Sunday, January 13, at about 7:50 pm Tokyo time / 5:50 am EST. Am hoping maybe the broadcast might be recorded and uploaded to YouTube as his Fuji-TV interview was (well, OK, really I'm hoping for a livestream, but YouTube works too...) Fingers crossed! And best wishes to Johnny and all his Japanese fans for wonderful shows!
