"squid game" game show gets the green light. the smash hit now becoming a reality competition. what we now know about the challenge and how many millions are at stake.od moram
7:02 am
>> t.j., i know what you were going to say. >> i don't think -- >> how can you make a reality show out of "squid game"? >> yes, thank you, george. >> are you kidding me? >> it's a little violent. winning, not losing is what i'm thinking. >> we don't have all the details yet. >> amy is the "squid game" fan. >> i'm so excited. it's so good. >> we'll get into that in a bit. we have to start with these growing concerns. the economy on everybody's mind right now. certainly on president biden's. he's feeling some pressure and he's getting increasingly frustrated with republicans. our cecilia vega will have more on that from the white house. and in just hours, the federal reserve expected to announce a hike in interest rates to battle rising inflation. that move is also sparking fears of a recession that would hurt american families. rebecca jarvis tracking it from wall street. rebecca, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is all a giant balancing act. balancing the fact that americans are paying so much more money at the pump, at the grocery store, on their rents
7:03 am
with the fact that any new measures from the federal reserve which are expected later today could also cause a slowdown and worse case scenario cause a recession. they are expected later today to announce the largest rate hike in nearly three decades, and it's already having an impact on things like mortgages, making them more expensive. take a look at this. the 30-year fixed rate mortgage average has gone from 3% to now above 6%. meaning if you were to buy a home at the start of this year and were able to afford a home at $450,000 in january, the monthly payments on that home would be the equivalent of the monthly payments on a home today of $316,000 with interest rates rising. of course, the reason for all of this is those prices. the typical american families are now paying about $350 more every single month on the same goods and services they were spending on a year ago. that means gasoline prices are
7:04 am
up 49%. shelter costs up 5.5% and groceries are up nearly 12%. this thing, this fed hike that is coming later this morning, later today, it will have an impact on those prices. it should eventually bring them down, but it also has an impact on things like the broader economy, the recession and that stock market volatility we've seen here. george? >> becca, thanks. inflation putting political pressure on president biden. he's blaming republicans in congress for blocking his plans to get prices under control. >> that's why my plan is not finished and why the results aren't finished either. jobs are back, but prices are still too high. covid is down, but gas prices are up. our work isn't done. >> chief white house correspondent cecilia vega joins us now. cecilia, no issue hurting the president more. >> reporter: exactly, george. this is a top issue for voters and they're really blaming him for this and that means that this is a top priority for this
7:05 am
white house. but, look, publicly and privately president biden is really feeling the pressure on this, and he's frankly growing increasingly frustrated. some of this stems from the fact that the white house and officials here say they've done what is in their control to try to combat some of these high prices. we have been talking about this. they released some strategic oil reserves trying to bring down gas prices. they're considering trying to end some of these trump-era tariffs on chinese goods. they say that would bring down day-to-day costs for americans but the white house knows it is a top issue for voters and are well aware it could threaten his agenda and threaten his party's chances in the midterms come november. there has been a steady drumbeat. we have been talking about this for months, from republicans who have been looking to cast this as biden's'r sing now isha pres that shift in the narrative. he's really looking to cast the blame on republicans right now who he says are blocking his agenda on capitol hill. he says if they can bring down things like lowering
7:06 am
prescription drugs that would offset other costs and he's going after oil companies more and more. he said recently exxon, for example, is making more money than god. he certainly has been blaming putin and the war in ukraine for the high-rise of energy costs. but, look, george, you know this, the truth is, the white house can do little directly to bring down inflation. that is the fed's job. but the voters are blaming him. they want him to do more. >> we'll see what the world looks like after the fed acts today. cecilia vega, thanks very much. t.j.? it's not just hot out there, it's downright dangerous, dangerous temperatures stretching across the country. 90 million plus americans facing extreme and record-breaking heat, and officials are warning, folks, you need to be careful. we want to say good morning to ginger tracking all this. hey there. >> good morning to you, t.j. it is the length of time and also remarkable how early in the season this is. not only did we see daily records from north carolina back to illinois, it's that we haven't seen this type of heat this early in places like chicago since 2012. so it's been a decade since you've experienced it.
7:07 am
from o'hare and midway yesterday at 98, and excessive heat warnings from central illinois and indiana, cincinnati, down to central georgia where they should feel more like 111. they were trying to cool off in wausau. lacrosse had that record high of 98 and in clinton, mississippi, moving practice times around for sports and band members because they just can't do it in the extreme heat. what do we have to look forward to today? another really hot one. for example, detroit could get up to 97 degrees. something they haven't done this early in the season, amy, in a decade. it will feel like 103. montgomery, 108. 104 atlanta. in the southwest, that dry heat but truly bad for the fire danger. amy? amy. >> all right, ginger, thank you for that. we turn to the flooding emergency at yellowstone national park as floodwaters battered the region washing away homes, downing bridges and leaving residents and parkgoers stranded. this is all happening just as the summer tourist season is kicking off, and will carr is in montana with all of that. good morning to you, will. >> reporter: good morning, amy. all of yellowstone park is shut
7:08 am
down this morning. and here on the northern side of the park which took a crippling blow from all of these floodwaters we saw play out over the past 48 hours, this is going to be part of the scenery for quite some time leaving both businesses, residents and tourists unsure exactly what's to come next. this morning, after historic flooding across yellowstone national park, officials overnight saying portions of yellowstone likely to remain closed for a substantial period of time just as the summer tourist season kicks off. after days of heavy rains and rapidly melting snow, the yellowstone river reached close to 14 feet, the highest ever recorded. the current so strong sweeping away roads. this bridge and this massive two-story home. more than 10,000 visitors ordered out of the park for their own safety, and you can see why. a rock slide, the boulders crashing down, barely missing that red suv trying to exit the park.
7:09 am
residents working together, sandbagging, trying to stave off homes from f with some neighborhoods still underwater the big concern is when these waters finally recede how much damage will be left behind? crews rushing to re-open roads alowing a long line of traffic to snake away from yellowstone. after being trapped in gardiner angela chen and her family, some of the first to escape. >> the townspeople are awesome. i mean, they went out their way to make sure that we're comfortable. >> reporter: the park here is going to be closed at least through the weekend as authorities wait for the waters to go down and see the extent of the damage. if you're planning to come to yellowstone keep tabs with the latest information on the park's
7:10 am
website. t.j.? >> some of those pictures are incredible. thank you so much. we want to turn to the fda panel set to meet today to consider two vaccines for children as young as 6 months old. whit johnson at a drugstore here in new york where some of america's youngest kids could soon be getting those shots. good morning to you, whit. >> reporter: hey, t.j., good morning. a deision today would impact 18 million young kids, the last group of americans still not eligible for a covid vaccine. this fda panel is expected to meet, review the data, and then vote on whether to authorize two different covid vaccines, one from pfizer, one from moderna. possibly making a shot available for the first time for those youngest kids between 6 months and 5 years old. now, the fda has already said both vaccines appear to be safe and effective. pfizer's vaccine is given as a three-shot series. the company's early data showed it was 80% effective in preventing symptomatic covid. moderna's vaccine is just a two-dose series and it shows it was 40% to 50% effective at preventing mild infections. the effectiveness against more severe illness is still not yet known. now, it's important to note that this efficacy data for both vaccines is still preliminary. it was based on small sample sizes and experts also point out
7:11 am
that both vaccines do produce similar antibodies against omicron as the adult vaccines but in those smaller doses for young kids. t.j.? >> encouraging news but when is the question. when might we see the shots rolling out? >> reporter: exactly. if this independent advisory panel votes in favor of authorization, there are a few mre steps here before it ultimately goes to the cdc director. she would give the final green light, and if she does, those shots could start rolling out and going into arms as soon as next tuesday, but it's still not clear what the demand will be for these shots. a recent survey found only 1 in 5 parents of children in this younger age group would get their kids vaccinated right away. t.j.? >> all right, whit. we appreciate you as always. thanks. george? to politics now. results from another round of primaries over night with mixed results the for candidates backed by former president trump. andrew dymburt tracking them. >> reporter: a couple of primary elections seen as a test of former president trump's power
7:12 am
and influence over the gop and the results, a split decision. let's start in south carolina this morning where five-term congressman tom rice just became the first house republican who voted to impeach trump to lose a primary. in an exclusive interview with abc news ahead of primary election night, rice defended his vote saying, quote, i did it then and i would do it again tomorrow. elsewhere in the state, representative nancy mace who blamed trump for the capitol riot fended off a trump-backed challenger. george? >> and in nevada, the candidate who ran for secretary of state is a big proponent of the big lie about the 2020 elections. >> reporter: that's right, george. it's jim marchant. he's a projected winner and will now advance to the general election. if he were to win in november, he would be in charge of future elections in that key battleground state of nevada. he made repeated misleading claims about the 2020 election and now it looks like the businessman and former state
7:13 am
lawmaker will be on the primary ballot in november. again, if these results in nevada and south carolina are viewed as a sort of test of trump's influence, the results so far have been mixed. george? >> andrew dymburt, thanks. amy? now the latest on the war in ukraine. president zelenskyy pleading for more weapons as russian forces gain ground, possibly on the verge of taking a key city there. our foreign correspondent james longman has the latest. >>reporter: this morning, as ukraine tries to hold off the overwhelming russian force in the east, president zelenskyy with a plea for more military help from the west. [ speaking foreign language ] he says he's grateful for what's come so far but it must come faster. now new satellite images show bridges surrounding severodonetsk destroyed cutting the city off. to the north of severodonetsk police rush to evacuate civilians as bombs fall around them. [ speaking foreign language ] one resident says, evacuation buses can't reach the town because of the shelling. police evacuate people on their own.
7:14 am
here in the east we're taking defensive positions back from the front lines. we meet vitale, a member of an elite civil defense unit, and he says the weapons they have can't keep the russians at bay. he said, we need more than an ak-47 to go up against artillery and tanks. there are still some victories here. this russian tank recently captured by ukrainian forces. this is a russian tank which has been commandeered by the ukrainians. we've got a commander and a targeter here proud to show it off because it's much more modern than anything the ukrainians have got. even with sounds of artillery all around, these soldiers still refuse to be subdued. >> how are you smiling? you seem like a smiling person. this is a hard thing to be doing. [speaking foreign language] . >> you're naturally positive. >> sounds like it's the last thing we have left here. >> reporter: this gives you an idea of what russia is capable
7:15 am
of. just in the last few moments nato has announced they will be sending more military aid to kyiv. the big question, willing it be enough and will it get here in time to stop more of ukraine from looking like this? george? >> okay, james. thanks very much. in russia, there's new concern for opposition leader alexei navalny. he was transferred to a maximum security prison without explanation and maggie rulli has the latest. good morning, maggie. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. allies of navalny raised the alarm after discovering he was no longer in the prison where he had been serving his sentence. it was only then russian authorities revealed navalny had been transferred to a maximum security prison nearby. navalny's spokesperson says they haven't confirmed this but they called the new prison a, quote, monstrous place even by russia's insane standards. navalny was arrested when he returned to russia last year after he alleges the kremlin attempted to kill him in a nerve agent attack. in the year that followed we've seen the kremlin continue to crack down on his supporters, opposition leaders, and any independent journalists. in a statement shortly after the news the u.s. state called what
7:16 am
happened to him a politically motivated arrest, calling for his immediate release, as well as an end to the persecution of his many supporters. george? >> he has shown so much courage. okay, maggie. thanks very much. we turn back to the u.s. something people have been keeping an eye on, the nba finals. now you have something else to look forward to, the stanley cup final. the colorado avalanche looking to dethrone the two-time defending champion tampa bay ligh lightning. kayna whitworth there covering game one. kayna, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, t.j. good morning. the tampa bay lightning looking to have their name engraved on lord stanley's cup for the third time, something that hasn't been done since 1982. even their captain says this is surreal, but standing in their way is an absolutely electric colorado avalanche team that swept both edmonton and nashville to get here, and they have had eight days' rest before the puck drops tonight here in denver in this best of seven series and the city of denver coming out in full force to support them. the bars and restaurants here

about $1,500 a month in payment, you could afford a home that was valued at $450,000. today, to make those statement $1,500 a month payments, you can only afford a home that's worth $316,000 because of where interest rates are. again, this is a balancing act. on the one hand it will cost consumers more on credit cards. it will cost you more to get a loan on a car but, george, it will also hopefully in the long run cool prices off. >> that is the hope as you say. rebecca, thanks very much. amy? now togent ale about popular prodts commission issuing warnings about rockers from two companies after the deaths of more than a dozen infants. erielle reshef is here with those details. good morning to you, erielle. >> reporter: the agency issuing

8:32 am
>> thank you. >> tell us how you're feeling. >> i feel a lot -- well, i feel a lot better after that situation. i feel good. you know, i had a procedure done to close this hole in my heart and i'm just giving my body the time to heal and recover. it was a little hard for me to recover from the procedure just giving myself the time to be able to like work out again and feel like normal if that makes sense but i'm doing well now and, you know, i'm not having to be on any medication anymore so i feel good. >> the two of you, both having such physical health scares mentally i mean i'm sure you leaned on one another. what has that been like for you as a couple and just mentally coming to terms with it? you're so young, you know, to have to go through something like this, both of you? >> i mean i think two things like going through it very publicly in front of a lot of people, it kind of almost in a way forces you to have to be up front about what's going on so people understand what you're going through and i actually think it opened up a lot of important and amazing conversations and i think the silver lining of it honestly, it brings us closer, going through this together and being together and it bonds you so that's the silver lining in these crazy times.
8:33 am
>> did it give you perspective as well and maybe time to slow down? you live busy lives, all over but slow down. i know you have this business venture, a skin care line but was that in the works, i assume, for awhile but long before the health scares? how did that play into you getting to this point where you have, hey, you have a skin care line. >> yeah, i mean, i've been working on this for the last 2 1/2 years and started right at the beginning of the pandemic right when we went into lockdown. when i felt like i really had the time to dive into it and pursue it because it's secret i've always been extremely passionate about. i just didn't feel like i had the time to even start the conversation and it was something i knew i wanted to do from the ground up like start from scratch, build a team, build the business, build the brand. so i really started it two years ago and obviously, you know, getting closer and closer to this is a dream of mine that is
8:34 am
here and that it's come out so getting closer to realize that dream and having random bumps in the road, i mean, i think it just makes you stronger in a way. it gives you resilience, i think that's something that i had to find the balance through everything but also it really showed me like prioritizing what's important and to me i had to take care of myself. i had to be healthy. i had to put things to to the side. i had to cancel things and i think that was an important lesson for me to learn about what do you prioritize. what's important? so, yeah. >> all at a very young age. it took me much longer to figure that out. >> sometimes life forces you to learn it. >> let's talk about your line. i love the name because it has a special meaning. i know your philosophy is less is more. >> yeah, in a lot of ways i think my philosophy is less is more. i'm somebody who -- i went with skin care because i've always had a dream of doing a brand, a
8:35 am
beauty brand at that and for me skin care felt like it made the most sense because i've always been so passionate about a skin care routine. i would say i'm slightly obsessive over it and i'm just very like routine when it comes to skin care. but the name came from, you know, obviously it's my middle name. it's my mom's middle name so i wanted there to be this tie into family lineage, i learned so much about skin care from my mom. she's taught me so much about how to take care of my skin since i was a kid up until now and always gave me a lot of different tips and i watched her and kind of get into it myself as i've gotten older and feel like in the industry that i've
8:36 am
been in now since i was 17, i've really just developed what my beauty philosophy is and as i've gotten older i gravitate towards less is more and less makeup. less hair, less everything and i think that's something that i've embraced and has made me feel more beautiful than i ever have. >> any time, often times i think we introduce you as model hailey bieber but you wanted to make sure and i think you do it with the price. you wanted to make sure it's accessible to everyone. how do you make that translate from people see you and all, she's a model and has skin care and has her beauty regimen, that's one thing but how do we make sure that's accessible and everyone feels like they can still be a part of the hailey bieber world of skin care, if you will? >> i really wanted to make really amazing formulas that could be accessible and affordable to everybody. rhode to me is like this is the world of rhode. i want to open up my world to everybody and want them to be a part of it and feel welcome. while still giving awesome products and basically the ethos behind it in a lot of ways making one of everything great so it's like those curated essentials you keep going back to and reaching for and it's kind of the same way i cure rate my wardrobe in my closet. the perfect pair of jeans, the perfect moisturizer, you know, kind of having those go to -- >> i'm the same way.

8:49 am
back against what they call bullying within the gay community over how they look. >> i've had someone actually say, if you lost a little bit more weight, i think we could go on a date. >> reporter: a study showed gay men had lower body esteem score, higher rates of eating disorder and greater concerns for physical attractiveness compared to straight men. nico cassidy grew up as an overweight kid in upstate new york. once he got to college body expectations led him to extreme dieting. >> you're so gay. you're fat. it's definitely deep rooted in shame from childhood and to be who we are and that shame cops out and portrayed as a little more of a superficial vibe. >> reporter: sam posts his body with pride. calls himself full-figured and body positive. >> there is an unwritten and kind of unspoken adonis complex that happens especially within american gay culture. >> reporter: experts point to social media and dating apps affecting all of us, gay and straight. one study showed digital comparisons led to users feeling

worse about themselves. >> the pursuit of the ideal body or pursuit of perfection can be damaging and lead to depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues. >> reporter: they say they hope speaking out will help change perspective. >> the one thing i learned confront things as they happen because if you actively are working on yourself you will always have hardships but you'll be the best you can be. >> my relationship with my body, i feel it's a growing relationship. i'm getting used to me. >> reporter: and experts say some of the most helpful tips, reduce your time on social media and redirect your focus to something else but, of course, george, that's easier said than done. >> sure is.
8:51 am
let's talk to dr. jen ashton. you don't hear a lot of talk about this. >> we don't. i want to take a more macro view of this. it's not just body dysmorphia and eating disorders in the gay community. it's men in general that are often overlooked so they're facing almost a double cultural bias of stereotypes where you don't think of men as being subjected to the risks of body dysmorphia and eating disorders. i want to be clear, there are associated medical risks here. it's not just a cosmetic issue. obviously men or anyone with body dysmorphia then can go on to have an increased risk of associated depression, anxiety, substance abuse, i want to be clear, a higher associated risk of death. this is truly a medical issue and i'm so glad we're talking about it. >> what's the latest science on eating disorders? >> one of the biggest misconceptions, if you see someone dealing with body dysmorphia or an eating disorder to try to reason with them. i think it's really important, you know, the theory and psychology and psychiatry, this is a detachment from reality and the only way they can exert
8:52 am
control over his or her life by controlling what they look like, what they eat. and it's not as simple as, you know, you're just wanting to look like a magazine ad. it's a true psychiatric and psychological condition. >> you're a nutrition expert as well. what's your advice to anyone struggling with it? >> my advice on anything related to the mental health and physical health sphere is to fill the boat. get professional help. as intimidating as it may seem there is help available. we'll put the national eating disorder hotline number, 1-800-931-2237. help is available. >> yep, call that any time you need the help. jen ashton, thanks very much. we'll be right back. we'll be right back.
