Top Viral Stories Of The Week - October 30th, 2015


Just when you thought Beyoncé couldn't have any more sass, she kicks it up a notch, a "Jeopardy!" contestant takes a jab at liberals with the wrong answer, a hot teacher takes a stand in her bathing suit and new evidence of life on Mars emerges.

1. Final 'Jeopardy!' answer goes viral for insulting liberals

Another "Jeopardy!" moment has gone viral, and it's the diss felt 'round the country. The final "Jeopardy!" answer had some Democrats saying "ouch."

"I think you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country," host Alex Trebek said before reading the contestant's response.

The clue was regarding the flower known as the bleeding heart, which is also a disparaging term for people on the political left.

Her response? "What is a pansy." At least she went down swinging.

2. Beyoncé tells an assistant to 'stop it' on Tidal X red carpet

This one isn't really a story, but more like a viral moment (it involves Beyoncé, so of course people are still obsessing).

During the TIDAL X event in Brooklyn, where Beyonce and Nicki Minaj performed a duet, Beyoncé was looking hot on the red carpet in front of a sea of flashing lights -- and one unexpectedly candid moment with an assistant went public.

If you slow down the footage, you clearly see Beyoncé saying "stop it." It's so inconspicuous, we almost didn't notice ... but we did.

3. Middle school teacher's fitness photos spark controversy

A Utah middle school teacher found herself in the center of controversy after some of her students and their parents found some sexy photos on social media.

Teacher Mindi Jensen competes in fitness competitions, and the uniforms in that particular sport are pretty sparse.

The photos were called inappropriate, and in an official complaint, the school came to her and asked that she set each picture private or risk losing her job. Jensen took a stand.

"Why are my rights being taken away and not the child's right, " Jenson said. "It's between the parent and the child. Put restrictions on your children. If you are not comfortable with seeing me in my fitness uniform on stage posing, then take that away from your kid. Don't take it away from me."

Jensen has more than 48,000 followers on Instagram alone. She says she's become an inspiration of health to women all over and wants to remain accessible to those who look to her for encouragement.

4. A 'bear' was spotted on Mars

NASA's Mars exploration has produced a ton of photos and information valuable to scientists, but citizen space enthusiasts have enjoyed learning from the images, too.

Alien hunter Scott C. Waring posts about unique features spotted on the Red Planet's surface, and he recently shared this one on the UFO Sightings Daily website.

It supposedly shows what appears to be a bear wandering around the Martian surface.

"There is a reason NASA puts photos into black and white," he notes. "To hide the living creatures and plants that are an obvious color."

Waring says he was able to determine that the bear's hair is real and conclude that the figure is a live animal.

That's our roundup for the week. Check back next week for a new batch of stories you may have missed.

Refugees and migrants sail towards the Greek island of Lesbos on October 25, 2015 as they cross the Aegean sea from Turkey. At least three migrants -- two children and a woman -- drowned when their boat sank off the Greek island of Lesbos, the coastguard said, the latest fatalities in Europe's refugee crisis. Around a dozen others, mostly Afghans, are still missing after the rickety vessel, carrying 60 people, went down at dawn as it made the perilous crossing from Turkey, according to the Greek coastguard.
