stars," Monday night, 8:00, 7:00 A lot of other topics this morning. And remember the Oscar selfie Ellen had? It's the most seen selfie of all-time. Trying to re-create it is not a good idea if you're graduating from a couple of colleges. University of south Florida, or Rhode Island. They've asked not to do selfies when they're walking up on stage to get the diploma. It's taking way too much time. It's interfering with the de cor rum. If you don't take a picture of it, it didn't happen, George. You have to do it yourself. That's the way young people think these days. Must document everything or it didn't happen. It's so true. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the moment. Another college is saying, yes. You're right. Wisconsin is setting up a selfie booth. A booth? Yeah. Control it. And on Twitter and instagram. I think controlled is okay. You don't want to keep everybody else in that line, though. Yeah. That's what people are buzzing about. Also this, wonder woman, Julia Collins becoming the most successful female on "Jeopardy!" Ever. Winning her ninth-consecutive game. She is now collected more than $200,000. That will pay for some tuition. It will. I don't know about there. But prior to that, the streak for the number of games a woman had won in a row was seven. And she posed a question last night that we all want to know. Can she make it to another episode? We'll see. Good for her. Yeah. And this is also big out there right now. It's the latest craze. It's called the finger trap test. This trend first started making waves -- the finger trap test. It's the Chinese version of face book. You take your index finger between your chin and your nose. If they do, that means you're quote/unquote, beautiful. Your finger. Basically, if your chin cut juts out, you're not beautiful. You can see, these pictures, they're -- I think that's humiliating. I do, too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And it's within. Agreed. So, finger trap test. Phooey. Finger down. There's a famous female who knows beauty is on the inside. Amal alamuddin. She is getting praise for putting her brains first. And there was an open letter that was recently published on "The New York post" that went viral. It's the number two story on the site. It notes that George Clooney's fiancee established herself first before, if she was focusing on finding a mate. The author of the letter calling alamuddin, a fantastic rebuke. Women in college get their M.S. Degree never will meet their match. That's a horrible message to send to women. I pause at the thought of focusing to find a mate. When it happens, it happens. And you focus on yourself. You educate yourself. You improve yourself. And then, they come. You build it, they will come. Right? That's very attractive, when you're a confident -- you do what you love and you're spiritually fulfilled within. And I hadn't thought about the George Clooney engagement. She actually turned him down a couple times. Oh. See there? Yes. I don't know if it's true. I wonder if he's ever been turned down before. I'm going to go with no. Yeah. That's why she's the won. The first one. Does anybody else think she looks like Anne Hathaway? She does a little bit. A lot of people talking about that, online, as well.
