LOS ANGELES (AP) — Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids On The Block is stuck on a boat with a bride who wants him to officiate her wedding.

New Kids pushed off yesterday on a five-day cruise from New York to Bermuda.

The bride brought her fiancé and her bridesmaids on the cruise.

Among the 3,000 passengers on the ship are two sisters who have a room in Seattle dedicated to New Kids and a group of Scotsmen who want to meet women.

The cruise is being filmed for a reality show called “Rock This Boat: New Kids On The Block” that will run on the TV Guide Network this fall.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
