Former “Dancing With the Stars” host Tom Bergeron took a break from his social media vacation to offer his fans another tease about his new hosting gig, which apparently has already started filming. Read on to find out what he said and what our guesses are for his new job — including “Bachelor in Paradise.”Bergeron Says ‘Hosting Is Like Riding a Bicycle’ View this post on Instagram

On Memorial Day weekend 2021, Bergeron announced that “in honor of the unofficial start of summer,” he would be “taking a little break from social media” — “at least until the nervous tics kick in.”
But recently, he posted a video to Instagram captioned, “We interrupt this summer social media hiatus for a brief update…” and he then dropped some hints about his new hosting job.
“Well hello there! I’m taking a brief break from my summer break from social media just for a quick note. Day two of shooting the new project,” said Bergeron. “We are having a ball. Apparently hosting is like riding a bicycle. In any case, more details later in the summer. I’m back off social media now. You have a great summer, take care. See you soon!”
Frankly, in today’s age of social media, we can’t believe that the cat is not out of the bag yet, but there is no word yet as to what Bergeron is hosting. Fans previously thought it was his one-off episode of “Hollywood Museum Squares,” a fundraiser for the Hollywood Museum, but we know now for sure that that wasn’t it. Here are our best guesses for Bergeron’s new job…Fans Think ‘Having a Ball’ Is a Clue

Several fans on Bergeron’s Instagram account think that when he said “we are having a ball,” he was dropping a hint. Now, the easy reference for that is “ballroom,” i.e. “Dancing With the Stars,” but Bergeron has already said it’s not that and also, that show doesn’t film ahead of time.
But there are a few game shows that have been announced that might fit the bill. First off, “Holey Moley” premieres on June 17. Is it possible Bergeron is secretly filming that alongside commentators Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore and host Stephen Curry? Maybe, but probably not. That information probably would have leaked by now.
However, NBC is making a U.S. version of the smash hit U.K. game show “The Wheel,” where seven celebrities sit around a 42-foot-wide spinning wheel and help contestants answer trivia questions. Maybe Bergeron is hosting that — a ball is round like a wheel, after all. The U.K. host Michael McIntyre is one of the producers for the U.S. version and he said in a press release when it was announced that hosting “The Wheel” is “the most fun [he’s] had on television,” which sounds right up Bergeron’s alley.
“The format creates wonderful camaraderie among the celebrities, natural hilarity and genuine suspense. I can’t wait for ‘The Wheel’ to roll across America,” said McIntyre.
One other possibility is “Bachelor in Paradise.” News recently broke that a slew of celebrities would be on a hosting rotation for that show following Chris Harrison’s departure and it did just start filming in Mexico, so maybe that’s what Bergeron was talking about? His name wasn’t among the list of leaked celebrities that includes David Spade, Lil Jon, Tituss Burgess, and Lance Bass, but the Variety report did say “and more” when listing the new hosts.
We previously thought he might be hosting the new CBS dance show “Come Dance With Me,” but Philip Lawrence is the host of that show — and there are lots of other game shows premiering soon that already have hosts as well, so if it’s not “The Wheel” or “Bachelor in Paradise,” it is probably a show we haven’t even heard about yet.
“Dancing With the Stars” season 30 is expected to premiere in September 2021 on ABC.

United Kingdoms Tom Stoltman wins 2021 Worlds Strongest Man competition for his mother
Model Alyssa Scott Seemingly Confirms Shes Expecting Nick Cannons Seventh Child Stock futures are mostly flat after Dows worst week since October © Joe Martinez, World's Strongest Man Tom Stoltman competes in the Reign Keg Toss at SBD World's Strongest Man 2021.
The United Kingdom's Tom Stoltman is the 2021 World's Strongest Man, but the victory holds meaning to the Scotsman far beyond the five days of competition. It represents fulfilling a promise he made to his mother before she died five years ago.
"It hasn't really sunk in yet," Stoltman told USA TODAY Sports. "I told one of the guys a few years ago that in a few years' time I was going to win World's Strongest Man for my mom. Three years later, I've done that, and it just feels surreal."
Stoltman came up just short in last year's World's Strongest Man competition, coming in second to Ukraine's Oleksii Novikov. This year, Novikov failed to qualify for the final round, and Stoltman was able to best the field, which included his older brother, Luke.

The Stoltmans are the only pair of siblings that have both qualified for the World's Strongest Man finals. Luke finished seventh overall in this year's contest, but Tom attributes much of his success in the sport to his brother.
"If I didn't have Luke, I wouldn't be sitting here as World's Strongest Man," he said. "He is the one that keeps my head up when I'm performing not the best, and he helps me get through to the finish, which is exactly what he did today."
After dominating two events on the first day of the finals, Stoltman led the field by 5.5 points, but American Brian Shaw gave Stoltman a run for his money. Shaw broke his own world record in the Reign Total Body Fuel Keg Toss, heaving the 15 kilogram keg over a 7.75-meter-high bar.

On the second day of the finals, Shaw closed Stoltman's lead to just one point prior to the last event, the Atlas Stones. Unfortunately for Shaw, the Scotsman is the world-record holder in the Atlas Stone Lift and finished first in the event at World's Strongest Man in both 2019 and 2020.
"My mom was the reason," Stoltman said. "When I make I promise, I want to fulfill that promise. I just used the adrenaline, and her and my family back home as well. I just put it all up into one big ball and use that to help me get over the [finish] line."
Sacramento is home to the California State Railroad Museum, so this year's competition worked to incorporate its host city's history with trains into the events. The finals included a brand new event called the Titan's Turntable, in which athletes pushed an antique train 180 degrees on a turntable built in 1911. The Train Pull, a timed race to drag a 50–80 ton locomotive along a 20-meter track, was also competed for the first time since 2003.© Joe Martinez, World's Strongest Man Tom Stoltman competes in the Titan's Turntable at SBD World's Strongest Man 2021.
While the 2020 World's Strongest Man competition had to overcome challenges posed by both COVID-19 and a hurricane, this event signaled a return to normal. Because California began reopening June 15, fans were able to attend the competition at full capacity.
"It was great that that was the first day of our competition, to be able to have fans on site, and to have that energy and enthusiasm," said Rebecca Levin, vice president of IMG Media, which organizes the competition. "To be here to witness all of that was just incredible."
