McKayla Maroney Continues To Be Very Unimpressed

Olympic gymnast/ace vaulter/Internet meme McKayla Maroney has taken her adorable “McKayla Is Not Impressed” face on the press tour. Last night, the Fierce Five delivered Stephen Colbert a pen in a way only they could (on their hands, with flips and split leaps)…McKayla was left less than impressed.

Then the pint-sized fivesome took their charm to The Late Show, where (while sitting on the world’s saggiest couch) they demonstrated what their Mememate had taught them in the art of looking less than enthused.

And if you need to waste an hour or three today, peruse the continuously updated McKayla Is Not Impressed Tumblr (brainchild of VH1’s own Gavin Alaoen!) Our own submission below, from last week’s Dougie lesson on the Today Show:

Sure, we enjoyed the Olympics, but this Tour de Smirks is proving to be even more entertaining.

Most Revealing Thing Fans Gathered From Rob Pattinson’s Daily Show Interview Was His Distaste For Ice Cream

Robert Pattinson may or may not be back on the market, but if you ladies had a master plan to woo him with chilled dairy product – restrategize. The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart meant well, serving up the indulgence of choice for many going through relationship turbulence, and Rob politely ate a few melty scoops. What may not have been apparent to the untrained (er, anyone not scouring the footage while creating GIFs) was Rob’s arduous effort to get that B&J’s down his perfectly-stubbled gullet. We’re still unclear whether it was the flavor at hand – Karamel Sutra – or if he just prefers his desserts in loquat pie form (tear).

Bonus GIF of Rob blaming his “Double Spanx” below:

    Neymar, Budding Soccer Superstar, Is Today’s Olympian To Watch

    As Brazil takes on Mexico for the men’s soccer gold medal today at 10 a.m. ET, we’re sure you won’t have a problem keeping an eye out for 20-year-old soccer prodigy Neymar Da Silva Santos Junior, commonly known as simply Neymar. Since Americans are traditionally out of the loop with soccer a.k.a. football, here are seven facts to get you acquainted with one of the game’s brightest young stars.

    1. At just 11 years old, Neymar joined Brazil’s legendary Santos FC Academy and nearly left at 14 to join Real Madrid, but Santos paid about $495,000 to keep him on his home turf.

    2. He has a flair for the dramatic. Neymar’s often criticized for his tendency to dive in hopes of being awarded a foul. Soccer legend Pelé once said (somewhat) in his defense, “He is a player with a body that can’t take a lot of hits. A lot of times he will fall because he can’t do anything else, but he was overdoing it.”

    To be fair, he is quite the featherweight at 5’9″ and 132 lbs. And according to this headband – 100% Jesus.

    18 GIFs Of Olympians’ Parents Freaking Out While Watching Their Kids Compete

    If there’s anything more amazing than Olympians taking the gold, it’s watching the emotional roller-coasters their parents ride as they compete. The moms and dads — especially this year’s crew — are often more exciting and gut-wrenching to observe than their insanely talented kids. And while many of their reactions are LOL-worthy, they are also deeply touching and often the catalyst for our Olympic-size tears, which occur nightly as we watch really athletic/hardworking humans show off their skills while sitting our couch swimming in a sea of Bugle crumbs.

    Check out 18 parental reactions that deserve gold medals below.

    Gabby Douglas Is Today’s Olympian To Watch: Get Acquainted With “The Flying Squirrel”

    Gabby Douglas
    Before we all put on sleep masks and ear plugs for the day to avoid spoilers about who wins today’s Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Final, let’s take a closer look at one of the favorites. 16-year-old Gabby Douglas flew (quite literally) onto our radar at the Olympic trials, where she edged out reigning world champ and teammate Jordyn Wieber for the #1 spot. At 4’11”, G-Dougs is the shortest shorty on the team, but her presence is huge and we can’t wait to watch her battle it out with fellow superstar Aly Raisman tonight for the gold.

    1. Gabby was nicknamed the “Flying Squirrel” by National Team Coordinator/Legend Márta Károlyi for her soaring abilities on the uneven bars.

    Aly Raisman’s Parents: Let’s Enjoy Their Olympic Enthusiasm Again And Again

    We’ve all heard (or know first-hand) that parents of athletes can be a little enthusiastic about their kids’ sports. Well, that point was definitely proven last night as U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman’s parents watched her compete on the uneven bars during the Olympics qualifying round. Their twisting and turning deserves a medal of its own. We were more nervous watching them than watching the girls on the floor! We are so glad that Aly didn’t catch her parents’ routine while she was on the bars, or else we’re sure she would have ended up laughing along with us. Although, this is probably not the first time her parents have been moving right along with her. One of our favorite parts was when her dad let off steam in the end with that laugh/scream. We were right there with him! (Also, who is the genius who miked them?)

    Robsten Through The Years: From Edward And Bella To Secret Lovers To Heartbreak

    To our frequent readers, it should come as no surprise that we’ve been huge Robsten advocates since 2009. We’ve made an arguably obsessive habit of posting about every stolen glance, sly smile and sneaky kiss. As Kate made clear last night, we love(d) them as a couple. As we all brace ourselves for the maybe-inevitable news that our favorite Hollywood couple is donezo, let’s take a walk down memory lane….one filled with countless sneakers, shared holey t-shirts and paparazzi-shielding baseball caps.

    2007: While casting the perfect Edward Cullen (and after reading together on a bed), Kristen Stewart told Twilight director Catherine HardwickeIt’s got to be Rob!

    November 2008: Twilight comes out, causing the world to speculate about the stars’ possible coupledom.

    October 2009: OK! Magazine begins their Robsten obsession.
