Six Awesome Reality Show Ideas - Featured

In a world populated by 6 billion people and rising, I guess original ideas are hard to come by, which would explain all the reality shows. FOX stole their biggest show, Idol, from our friends across the pond, and ABC is turning Japanese with Wipeout and I Survived a Japanese Game Show. Here are some original reality show ideas that I would like to pitch to our program pilfering networks:


Twitter Me This: The trivia show where the contestants answer one question and one question only: What are you doing this instant? Of course, the answer will always be: "Playing a game show," or more likely: "plng a gs! Omg! Lmao!"


So You Think You Have Friends: Contestants would be forced to name one relevant, personal piece of information about every single one of their "friends" on Facebook or Myspace. Let's face it, no one would ever win this game.


I Survived a Lobotomy: I get the feeling that this show's audience would consist of mostly former contestants...or anyone who watches The Hills. (You should definitely greenlight this, MTV; it would insure a fan base for all your future programming. Plus, Ashton Kutcher would be the perfect host.)


I'm a Talentless Hack...Put Me on TV: Self-explanatory.


The Amazing Racists: Ten xenophobic racists are dropped in a foreign country, surrounded by people who don't look like them or speak their language, and--I don't know--left there, or something.


Star-Crossed: This one is intricate so bear with me. The DNA of a celebrity is crossed with that of an animal, making an animal/celebrity hybrid--like Megan Fox and a fox, or Michael J. Fox and a fox, or Matthew Fox and a...well, you get the idea. These genetically spliced creatures would then dance competitively, or try not to get fired by Donald Trump, or whatever they do in these "celebreality" shows. It doesn't really matter, because the genetic breakthrough alone would be well worth it; watching these abominations of nature survive in the jungle or fall in love would just be icing on the cake.

Awesome. If these were reality shows, I'd probably watch them - as opposed to real reality shows.
That said, why isn't Running Man on this list???
