"Heroes" Actress Hayden Panettiere
I've got a fun show for you today! I love Twitter, and today I did another Twitter challenge at UC San Diego. Over a thousand people show up this time! You won't believe what I have them do. They're playing for a big prize this time tickets to one of my 12 Days of Giveaways shows.
Then, the beautiful Actress Hayden Panettiere is dropping by from her hit series, "Heroes," to chat with me. She ends up stripping right in front of everyone, and you won't guess what she's wearing underneath!
Hayden also volunteered to be dunked for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I've got a surprise guest to throw the balls. He might just be the worst thrower I've had on the show. And, if you've seen Harry Connick Jr., you know that's saying something!
Then, you know I love reality shows, and one of my favorites is "Dancing with the Stars." That's why I'm excited to have Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff here today. He had been doing well, but barely escaped elimination this week, but they'll do a great dance for me today!
Also, 21-year-old music sensation Angel Taylor will be making her television debut on my show! She's been compared to some of the greatest names in music. Her new CD, "Love Travels," just came out and she'll be singing her song, "Like You Do."

"Parenthood" Actress Lauren Graham
The other day, one of my producers showed me a video of a kid who may be the youngest hip-hop dancer he's only 4! He's one of the coolest four-year-olds I've seen . . . Miles Brown will be on the show to chat with me and dance for all of us.
Then, my friend, Actress Lauren Graham, is here. She just announced that she'll be on the new show, "Parenthood." Every time she's here, she's always up to something crazy. She's one of my favorite guests, so I can't wait.
Also, in the last couple of years, OneRepublic went from hardly being known to being one of the most popular bands you might remember them performing "Apologize" on my show. Now, they've got a new album, "Waking Up." They will be performing their single, "All the Right Moves." It's gonna be huge!
And, with all the hidden camera tricks I've done at Starbucks in the last year, people are starting to figure out what's happening. But I'm not done with my hidden camera fun, so I've just picked a new location. It's gonna be hilarious and who knows . . . the next time you go to your favorite store, you could be on my show!

"Extra" Host/Actor Mario Lopez
Get ready, ladies! The very hot Mario Lopez will be here today. Every time he's on the show I try and get him to take off his shirt for you. I promise I'll get him to do it eventually maybe it'll be today! He's the host of "Extra" and will keep me updated on the latest news.
Then, my personal Chef Roberto Martin is coming back to teach us a new recipe. Last time, he taught us Vegan Tacos, which were so delicious. He's an amazing chef and a great guy. You're gonna want to see what he's cooking for us today.
Also, I'm sending Jeannie, my receptionist, somewhere in the country today. Last time I sent her to Miami with the Golddigger Machine and ended up giving her brand new GMC Terrain to a viewer. Now, a GMC dealer in Dallas gave me great deal on a brand new one! I wonder what I should do with it . . . mmmmm.

Actor/Comedian David Spade
Today, I'm going to introduce you to a 10-year-old girl who is already making an impact on the world. Her name is Annabelle Held, and she started a dog treat business but instead of keeping the profits, she donates them to an animal shelter in her hometown of Marietta, Georgia!
Then, my friend, the hilarious Actor David Spade, is also doing an amazing thing. He's been a big supporter of firefighters here in Los Angeles, especially after the wildfires of about two months ago. To thank them for their hard work, he's inviting hundreds of firefighters to a free comedy show later this month. He'll be here to tell me more about this really cool event.
Also, Actor John C. Reilly will be here for the first time! I can't believe he hasn't been here yet, but today the talented actor will finally chat with me. He's been in some of the best movies, like "Chicago," "Gangs of New York" and "The Hours." Now, he's in the new movie, "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" which I can't wait to hear about.
And, if you haven't heard Mika, you'll want to see him on today's show. He's from London, and after his first album he was compared with Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Prince. He just released his second album, "The Boy Who Knew Too Much." He'll perform his hit, "Blame It on the Girls," for me.
