"His Sneakers Came to Kill"

Screencap of Johnny during his appearance 
on Food Network's Chopped All-Stars, 
in which he competed for the Human Rights Campaign
a non-profit LGBT equality organization, while
wearing the "coolest sneakers" the judges had ever seen.

And once again we enter the territory of Shows I Have Never Ever Watched But Johnny Is On This Episode So Yay! Let's Record Every Airing Just In Case with last night's Chopped All-Stars. And it was actually a lot of fun, and very fast-paced, which I sort of preferred over the more drawn-out episodes of Rachael vs. Guy. Johnny was a hit, as always, judging by a multitude of Twitter reactions. His shoes and his dramatic exit—clearly meant to be hilarious—were especially enjoyed by Twitter, as you'll see below.

Yes! At last! Johnny's episode of Chopped All-Stars airs THIS SUNDAY at 9 pm EDT!  Here's the episode description from Food Network:

Four celebrities with different backgrounds, and a shared love of cooking, charge into the Chopped Kitchen. Plain vanilla is something that none of the competitors can relate to, but can they skillfully use vanilla cupcakes to create appetizers as one-of-a-kind as they are? Then something crispy and something jiggly make the main course a study in contrasts. And when two entertaining cooks proceed to the final round, they put on a performance with circus peanuts and curry powder.

Random Monday Roundup

The friend who can be silent with us 
in a moment of despair or confusion, 
who can stay with us 
in an hour of grief and bereavement, 
who can tolerate not knowing... 
not healing, not curing... 
that is a friend who cares.

Johnny + Nike: Just Do It!

Kayso I'm just popping up for air long enough to shriek at anyone who'll listen quietly note that HEY NIKE IS ACTIVELY SEEKING AN OUT GAY ATHLETE TO SPONSOR, according to a recent report in Towle Road, quoting from Bloomberg, and JOHNNY IS ACTIVELY INTERESTED, as is apparent from his tweeted photo above. 

Obviously this is a match made in sponsorship heaven. Plus, the guys have asked for fans' help in capturing Nike's attention and showing them that a partnership with Johnny is exactly the opportunity Nike has been looking for:

"The Ice King That Melts My Heart"

Johnny on Fashion Police 
after being introduced by Joan Rivers as 
"The Ice King that melts my heart."

Kayso in our ongoing adventure titled "Shows I Would Never Ever Watch Except That Johnny's On Them So Now I've Recorded His Episode Like Three Times Just In Case," we present Johnny's appearance on Joan Rivers' Fashion Police last Friday, in which he was, as the video description below notes, "cute, funny and effervescent... He shares his best and worst looks, his philosophy on fashion..." And he was a hit, of course, as seen in just a few samples of the tsunami of Twitter love he received that is customary after his every appearance:
