Producers at NBC have asked
former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich
to participate in a reality show titled, "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!"
The show drops ten celebrities in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle "to face challenges designed to test their skills in adapting to the wilderness."
Yesterday Blagojevich misquoted Teddy Roosevelt
during a court appearance in which he pleaded "not guilty" to charges of racketeering and fraud. The one problem with the reality-show offer? Blago's bond does not allow him to leave the United
States -- though one of his attorneys plans to ask if the governor
could leave to tape the show in June.
Can you imagine watching the ex-governor comb his hair in the jungle using a tremendous palm frond? Now that
is must-see TV.
