First Date with TV Star Billy Eichner

First Date with Billy Eichner

We get romantic with the guy behind “Billy on the Street”

You know in The Notebook when Rachel McAdams first meets Ryan Gosling, and you’re like “This could never work!” and then it’s the sweetest love story of our time?

Well, this video is basically the same thing. In today’s First Date, our woman about town, Lauren Lumsden, goes out with Billy Eichner, host of Fuse’s hit show Billy on the Street. The meet-cute happens at Manhattan’s East 12th Osteria, where they talked about Tinder, pickup lines, and Meryl Streep.

Okay, so maybe it’s a little more like The Bridges of Madison County.

Billy on the Street airs Wednesdays at 11 p.m. ET on Fuse. For more information, go to fuse.tv. Want more romance? Watch our date with Orange Is the New Black’s Matt McGorry.

Care Package: Olivia Wilde

Care Package: Olivia Wilde

Tokens of our affection for the mother-to-be

She’s got a dog named Paco. She’s having a baby boy with Jason Sudeikis. She surfs.

Actress Olivia Wilde is one of the cooler people around. In today’s Care Package video, we pay tribute to our girl crush with a few gifts we think she’d dig.

If you like what you see (especially since everything is less than $100), check out the presents we picked out for Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and supermodel Karlie Kloss.

They’d make a heck of a team.

5 Questions with Model Lydia Hearst

5 Questions with Model Lydia Hearst

The star of Oxygen’s “The Face” gets real

To those who say mugging for the camera every day is the easiest job in the world: Watch this video and you’ll feel differently.

In today’s 5 Questions interview, Lydia Hearst tells us the most painful thing she’s done in the name of fashion — and let’s just say it isn’t pretty. While we had her, she also shared her biggest indulgence (don’t worry; it’s not pretzels) and her thoughts on selfies.

Which, as we all know, are extremely difficult to get right.

The Face airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET. For more information, go to the-face.oxygen.com.

Care Package: Lupita Nyong’o

Care Package: Lupita Nyong’o

We made a package for our favorite Oscar winner

If you didn’t get emotional during her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress, you were probably watching True Detective.

We’d take Lupita Nyong’o over Rust Cohle any day. Which is why the actress is the object of our affection in today’s Care Package video, the new series in which we select gifts we think our favorite celebs would like.

From our favorite bright lipsticks to a little pendant of her homeland, we’re sure she’ll like our surprises/belated birthday gifts (she turned 31 on March 1).

Does anyone know the shipping address for cloud nine?

Care Package: Karlie Kloss

Care Package: Karlie Kloss

We make a care package for the supermodel

We love giving gifts. Especially if finding them requires us to “research” gossip mags at work.

Introducing DailyCandy Care Package, our new video series in which we compile items for our favorite famous folks based on what we think they might like. First up is Karlie Kloss, who surely needs a picker-upper right now while jaunting from catwalk to catwalk (okay, so her life isn’t too shabby, but whatever).

From a sweatshirt showing off her Midwestern roots to a cookbook that’ll satisfy her documented affinity for breakfast, we box up a bevy of objects she’s sure to love. And nothing costs more than $60.

Which means we might end up getting a few things for ourselves in the process.

First Date with Actor Matt McGorry

First Date with Actor Matt McGorry

We get awkward with the “Orange Is the New Black” star

Sure, Corrections Officer Bennett gets his secret inmate girlfriend pregnant on Orange Is the New Black, but he’s still the show’s hot guy.

The actor behind the handsome lothario is Matt McGorry, and it’s not every day we get to talk to such a charming fellow. Instead of doing a standard interview, we thought (selfishly), Why not make it a date? So we did.

In today’s first (and, we hope, not last) First Date with … video, we go to one of New York’s best date spots, Commerce, and ask McGorry an array of questions that might make a lesser gentleman flee: Do you have tattoos? How much do you bench? And, of course, what’s your shoe size?

We did not, however, ask him how he feels about handcuffs.

Rumor has it Orange Is the New Black returns for a second season on Netflix in June. For more interviews with familiar faces, check out our sit-downs with gymnast Nastia Liukin, actress Zoey Deutch, and model Coco Rocha.

5 Questions with Gymnast Nastia Liukin

5 Questions with Gymnast Nastia Liukin

The Olympian talks figure skating, leotards, and Michael Phelps

Most women have at some point in their lives (whether for fifteen minutes or fifteen years) dreamed of being an Olympic gymnast.

That’s why we flipped/aerialed/back-handspringed at the opportunity to sit down with Nastia Liukin, five-time medalist, now reporting for NBC Sports in Sochi, Russia. In today’s 5 Questions video, we ask her what it’s like to wear a leotard in front of millions, if she prefers Lochte or Phelps, and what song she would like to compete to.

Liukin, who lives in NYC and attends NYU, is tied with greats Shannon Miller and Mary Lou Retton for most medals won by a U.S. gymnast at the games.

We give her an all-around perfect score.

For more from Liukin, follower her on Instagram and Twitter. For more 5 Questions videos, check out our talks with Vampire Academy star Zoey Deutch, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, and actress Greta Gerwig.

5 Questions with Actress Zoey Deutch

5 Questions with Actress Zoey Deutch

The “Vampire Academy” star on her easy audition, perfect V-Day, and stinky cat

If the words strigoi and moroi mean anything to you, we’d probably be friends. You’re also probably 16.

Whatever. If loving YA vampire books is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Which is why we were excited to sit down with 19-year-old Zoey Deutch, star of Vampire Academy, the new movie based on the best-selling books by Richelle Mead.

In this video, the actress teaches us to pronounce difficult words from the book; dishes on her pet, Stinky Pete (real name); and tells us about the best Valentine’s Day she ever had — when she was 14.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got to go read War and Peace.

Currently Coveting: Valentine’s Day Gifts

Currently Coveting: Valentine’s Day Gifts

SuChin Pak and Mike Bender reveal what they want from each other

A couple of ground rules for February 14: Don’t get a man a tie (unless he specifically requests it) and don’t get a woman a gym membership (even if she specifically requests it).

SuChin Pak and Mike Bender, who’ve been married two years, learned this lesson the hard way. That’s why, in today’s Currently Coveting video, they reveal their Valentine’s Day wishes ahead of time.

SuChin’s picks are conventional compared with Mike’s, whose choices (a water purifier?) suggest a fondness for Bear Grylls. It’s no surprise he’s the founder of website Awkward Family Photos.

Let’s hope his advice doesn’t result in a bunch of new submissions.

Hotspots with Andrea Kasprzak

Hotspots with Andrea Kasprzak

Our editor shares her favorite things in SF

Many moons ago, I moved to SF with just two suitcases. I had zero housing prospects, I didn’t know a soul, and the iconic bridge seemed to be permanently immersed in fog.

Then the skies opened up: I found a Lower Haight apartment, 415 numbers slowly filled my phone, and I was hired to write about everything from comic book tarot card readers to seaweed foragers.

In today’s video, I introduce you to three Bay Area places I visit almost weekly: a veritable Sesame Street for artisans, a glamorous Pacific Heights flower shop, and a wine bar where you’ll want to become a regular.

I hope the video inspires you to venture outside your hood and try something new.

No bravery required.
