thanks for posting ginger! I just looked at the website, and their distances aren't standard -- they do an 18mile bike instead of 20km, and 4mile run instead of 5k. That explains a bit.

Whether or not she showed up for the the triathlon wouldn't impact the fundraising effort, once her entry fee was paid, because that's what the fundraising was from. If she had bailed on the last minute because of a foot injury she wouldn't have gotten her entry fee back anyway, so her attendance didn't have any impact on the amount raised, from what I've read. If she didn't want to do Heidi's show for whatever reason, she should have not agreed in the first place. Very unprofessional to flake.

Mykie I agree with you...someone else made a point about doing a tri for charity is way more important than project run way...yes raising money is important...but with work its about professionalism people. I hate when celebs get so big and believe in all their own hype and crap they forget where their bread is buttered and pull crap like this. Totally unprofessional and idiotic. DIVA!

A-HA! Vindication! This may or may not be true, but on another site, they are saying that the reason J-Lo pulled out of the show was because she was denied a role in a Weinstein film. Coincidentally, Weinstein produces Project Runway. In return, Heidi and Seal refused to go to Marc's birthday party. I TOLD you Heidi looked pi**ed when she gave the reason for Jennifer not attending. Like I said, that MAY not be true, but I do NOT buy that the only reason she dropped out was because of her foot. (Hello, the judges are SITTING during that show! How is that going to hurt her foot?)

California, thanks for that info! But I still think she's a stuck up snob. LMAO

This was evidently a tougher course, because the fastest time was 1:15:32. The team with the Olympic swimmer came in at 1:22:53. Since I still have that press release window open: FINAL RESULTS AT A GLANCE Category Name/Time Elite Male Chris Foster 1:15:32.0 Elite Female Anissa Sequin 1:30:06.7 Celebrity Individual Male Andy Baldwin 1:28.07.0 Celebrity Individual Female Pamela Conley Ulich 1:55:39.1 Celebrity Relay Male Team Nautica 1:19:22.3 - Team Nautica Members: Randy Eickhoff, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Elton Lewis Celebrity Relay Female Team Superbad 1:47:46.6 - Team Superbad Members: Jessica Erler, Stacy Griffith, Brooke Dillman Celebrity Relay Coed Team Amanda Beard 1:22:53.0 - Team Amanda Beard Members: Amanda Beard, Wadley, Kevin Pearsall

Not to be elitist, but I'm shocked that Matthew McConaughey didn't do better than 1h43 for a sprint triathlon... for a man as athletic as he is, that's a reeeeeeeeally slow time. I did a sprint tri yesterday where the winner finished in 55 minutes, and the last finisher was still under two hours -- and it was an incredibly hard course. Not meaning to detract from the fact that they're still doing something that's pretty rare for celebrities, but it needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Especially with all the shirtless jogging/biking/in the ocean pictures we get of Matt.

She didn't give away that, she was commenting on how much the event raised. According to the event's press release,this year’s event raised over $718,000 for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles Pediatric Cancer Research. They get corporate sponsorship to fund the race expenses so the entry fees paid by participants goes to the charity. The press release also said David Duchovny was amongst the celebs, but I would think the media would be all over him, so it's possible he registered a long time ago and didn't show up, because of the recent rehab issues.

I am not a big J.Lo fan but kudos to her for doing this, I don't think I could ever compete in a triathlon. $127,000 does seem like a low amount of money for her to give away though. Mykie7, I know you later retracted your statement about J.Lo and Matt not being friends or coming into contact with each other during the race, but I always got the impression that they got along (despite their differences) and they did greet each other, according to People.com: "In the VIP area, Lopez met up with Matthew McConaughey, who also competed in the triathlon at Zuma Beach. The actor, who finished in 1 hour, 43 minutes and 48 seconds, greeted his former Wedding Planner costar with a big hug."

Oh, she's a stuck up snob alright. Matt must just like that in a girl. LOL

I'm just awestruck at the ability to finish the triathlon...My body would kill me after having had kids and putting it through that torture! Matthew.. of course!LOL Awesome guys.

But she probably spent more than $127,000 for her private jet back to NY that afternoon for her husband's birthday party, which she also probably spent more than $127,000 throwing. Any fundraising for the hospital is great, but it just seems weird having JLo raving about that amount when she spends more than that in a day.

Hhaha I was just going to make that point briandiesel. Full reovery for two hours and something of punishing excercise but foot is so bad you can't sit through a tv show filming two days before..What BS. She's not even standing for the judging...she is sitting...sheesh. P.S. Love the sunglases and GIANT googles the entire time covering half her face...Jaylo without makeup and sweaty? NEVER!

Nadio, I didn't hear it. I'm assuming because she's such a stuck up snob and Matt is a stoner surfer boy. LOL

^ well Jennifer explained herself yeah it sucks i bet she really wanted to do it too but if she was advise to not move much before the tri to be able to do it then she had to cancel and you can see her injury on some pictures, not here on HQ pix. And i guess it was great at the end since that other guy ( sorry can't remember his name) was able to do it at her place and it seem like people really like him. ^ and where did you hear that she can't stand Matt? i've always read from both of them that it was one of the best time they had on a set (working together).
Mykie7 Mykie7 9 years
I think she and Heidi had a falling out. Did you see Heidi making the announcement? She didn't say "Jennifer had an emergency and couldn't attend." She said "Jennifer backed out, because she hurt her, um foot." LMAO It was hilarious and VERY obvious that Heidi was PI**ED!

Yay, her foots all better 2 days after she flaked on Project Runway. What a quick turnaround Jen?!
Mykie7 Mykie7 9 years
I notice they don't say the two spoke to each other. Probably because Jennifer can't stand Matt. LOL Oh wait, there's a picture of them all together. I'd love to have been a fly during THAT reunion Wonder how long that photo op too? LMAO

I think this is awesome. I love seeing celebs doing endurance events! If they have a charitable aim in mind, better still. I would love to see other recent mommies, Christina, Britney, etc. taking off their makeup and sweating with the commoners :) J-Lo has constantly had questionable quotes and behavior follow her but this is legit. And I think it's cute that McConaughy was out there too--he's totally in the "zone" in his wetsuit. Pretty funny.

it's really impressive to run a marathon let alone try this - so i'm really impressed with all of them. this seems like it's right up MM's alley but for JL? hmm..i think that she should be really happy of her accomplishment, and it sounds like she is. we can't forget that there were other hollywood types that were participating - so CONGRATS to them as well!
