Just Bananas About: Week of 4/17/17

One of the latest variety shows to make it past pilot season is Cheeky Cohabitation – Vacancy.  There’s gotta be a better way to translate that title but that’s the English translation.  It features a bunch of different celebrities that end up living together as roommates.  What’s most interesting about the show are the different pairings.

Just Bananas About: Week of 8/1/16 – Part 1
