Day in Their Life: Mark Wahlberg

He wakes up at 2:30 in the morning. He goes to bed at 7:30 at night. And he does a million things (church, golf, freezing his body to -232 degrees) in between. Mark Wahlberg’s day is insane. So I tried it.

All jokes aside, two bits of advice: don’t walk near elementary schools alone with a camera when kids are present, and do try cryotherapy; all my muscles felt amazing right away.

Day In Their Life: Cristiano Ronaldo

The only thing more impressive than Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal-scoring is his set of abs. He gets them by doing 1,000 situps a week. So I tried it.

There’s a reason he and I look like a “Before-and-After” diet pill ad.

I Would Not Survive ‘Game of Thrones’

Two things I love: Game of Thrones and wishing I was on Game of Thrones. For the HBO show’s Season 7 premiere, I put my Braavosi coin where my mouth is to see how I’d stack up in a sword fight against guys like Jon Snow and Jamie Lannister.

Skip to the 1:05 mark in the Daily Glow episode below to watch me go through armored combat training before jumping in a real fight against a (much bigger) knight-in-training. Things…didn’t go well.

I knew I was in for a beating when I started sweating profusely just putting on the armor. But the good news? Not only did I battle to a draw in my second fight – I didn’t bleed or puke! King in The North!
