Stars In Danger or Celebrity Diving

I know a lot of you were too busy to over the holidays to keep up on all of the celebrity diving news, so I’m here to get you back up to speed.

A few months ago ABC green lit a show called CELEBRITY DIVING and set an air date in March 2013.  It’s a rip-off of a dutch show called Celebrity Splash.  If you need to see a clip of that show, here you go.

But here is where the story gets fun.  FOX, having heard ABC’s announcement and not wanting to be outdone, orders a show called STARS IN DANGER.  FOX then sets a premier date in January, 2 full months ahead of ABC.  Apparently FOX is still a little miffed that all the other networks have copied their AMERICAN IDOL, which has seen dramatic ratings decreases over the last few seasons and wanted to stick it to ABC a little bit.

FOX didn’t have time to make a series out of this so it will be a “special” 2 hour show where the contestants compete against each other and get down to 2 finalists, who then dive against each other.  I know, exciting right.  Anyway, according to Huffington Post, here is the list of “stars” set to compete:

  • “Jersey Shore” star JWoww
  • Pro surfer Bethany Hamilton (she lost one arm to a shark attack)
  • “Baywatch” and Lifetime movie veteran Alexandra Paul
  • “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards
  • “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards
  • David Chokachi of “Baywatch” and “Witchblade” fame
  • Former NFL player Terrell Owens
  • Antonio Sabato Jr.

So that’s the state of reality shows today?  Networks are fighting each other over which one can get a diving show on the air first?  There had to be something better to make celebrities look stupid than diving.

Just some thoughts:

  • Celebrity Math:  each week stars compete against each other to attempt to solve complicated 3rd grade math problems.
  • Dirty Celebrity Jobs:  have a bunch of celebrities follow Mike Rowe around every week and make them perform some of the jobs on that show.
  • Raise A Child Without A Nanny:  This would be a fun show to get someone like Megan Fox to appear.  Follow around celebrities trying to raise kids without a nanny, night nurse, and personal assistant.  Might need to get FCC approval as it would probably lead to child neglect and abuse.

As always, we welcome your suggestions.  Any good ones I will immediately remove your name and submit it as my own to the network.
