The Actual Best Thing About Michael Phelps and #SharkWeek was This Guy on the Water Bike Baiting Sharks

I, like many of you, was incredibly disappointed by the Discovery Channel's "Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White." I, like you, questioned how it could happen in the first place and why barely a year into retirement Michael Phelps would risk his life for the often a let-down, #SharkWeek.

But, he didn't risk his life and he barely even came close to racing a shark. Internet backlash was so fierce after the "race" aired that the Discovery Channel issued a statement, "The show took smart science and technology to make the challenge more accessible and fun. All the promotion, interviews and the program itself made clear that the challenge wasn't a side by side race."

Garth Brooks Helps Couple with Gender Reveal on Stage and Says He'll Pay for College of Baby

Garth Brooks might be the most generous superstar on the planet. He also loves being a dad as much as loves being the highest-selling individual musical artist of all-time. And if you ever doubted that fact, just check out what he did during a recent show.

Brooks helped a happy couple with their gender reveal on stage, but before doing so he offered up a lot of sweet advice, "The only thing better than one is 50 — as many as you can afford. It's awesome. You'll see. Once they give you that baby, you'll go 'I'll take 100 more of these, man.'"

Jon Pardi Just Can't Believe How Hot It Is (Kind of Like Your Grandmother)

Jon Pardi is quite the entertainer these days. He's riding high off of two No. 1 singles and hitting the road with Dierks Bentley this summer, but he's just like the rest of us, or maybe, just like your grandmother, because he's just can't believe how hot is it.

Pardi sat down with Billboard after his Faster Horses Festival set and things got crazy thanks to the heat. During the 3-minute interview Pardi said, "it's hot" or "so damn hot" at least 16 times. Then, his answers got pretty entertaining from there.

Jimmy Kimmel's Update on His Baby Son's Health is Adorable

Earlier this year, Jimmy Kimmel shared with "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" viewers that his son, William "Billy" Kimmel was born with tetralogy of fallot and pulmonary atresia, which means that there was a hole in his heart wall and the pulmonary valve was blocked. The newborn underwent successful heart surgery at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and before taking off for his paternity leave, Kimmel thanked each and every doctor, nurse, janitor and beyond who cared for his son in the hospital.

Of course, his thoughts on healthcare were met with fiery comments, but ultimately, Kimmel just wanted to make it clear that his son was fortunate to be born with parents who could afford to meet all of his needs.

As Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren get ready to welcome their second baby girl into the world in just a matter of days, (assuming she arrives on or about her due date, which is August 8th), TR's also making sure Lauren has everything she needs-- ice cream.

Thomas shared, "Ice cream is her normal life craving and it's intensified when she's pregnant. So we always keep our freezer pretty stocked full of different flavors of ice cream. But I just feel bad for her, like I know how uncomfortable she is and how ready she is to just have the baby. So there's nothing much I can do about that except be a support system."

88-Year-Old Woman Really Wanted to Meet Luke Bryan and She Did

Francis Stanaway, a long-time country music fan, is 88-years-old and loves Luke Bryan. Maybe more than most Bryan fans. Stanaway was given the night of her life thanks to Crossroads Hospice "Gift of a Day" program-- she got to meet Bryan and attend his Kansas City show. Of course, being the fan she is, Stanaway also brought Bryan a birthday present.

Stanaway got to attend the show with her son and daughter-in-law who told KSHB-41, "This is probably the most excited she's been for six to seven months" and "We're excited for her because she used to love country so much before she went to the nursing home. She doesn't get to experience it much more."

It also looks like Stanaway got Bryan to relax on his butt touching rules too.

Mike Fisher Went All Alan Jackson During Family Lake Trip

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher's family lake trip answered a lot of questions for me. Mainly, that even if you grow up in Canada and end up playing professional ice hockey for a living, you can still water ski with the best of 'em.

Carrie shared a video of Mike doing some slalom skiing and obviously added Alan Jackson's "Chattahoochee" to it for total and utter summer perfection.
