This TV Addict is proud to present this blow-by-blow account of all the behind-the-scenes fun you didn’t see on camera.
Choice Example of America’s Faltering Education System: When asked what the biggest challenge America’s youth is currently facing, Choice Movie Actor Winner Channing Tatum said, “America’s Education system is not doing good.” ‘Nuff said!

Choice Quote: On how it feels to not have to worry about the pressure of high school any longer, Gossip Guy and Choice TV Breakout Male Star Chace Crawford said, “I feel like I’m still a teenager because I’m perpetually in high school!”
Choice Honesty: ONE TREE HILL and Choice TV Drama Actor Chad Michael Murray gets points for honesty by admitting that, “I drive a hummer, Maybe I’ll get a hydrogen hummer. I’m working on it,” when asked what his best Green Tip for America’s Youth was.
