Isn’t this the headline we’ve all been waiting to read? The bummer is, we don’t get to vote the most irritating of this attention-hungry breed off the planet and then watch them get strapped to tons and tons of rocket fuel and blasted out of our atmosphere. No, that would be too perfect.
But, it’ll be kind of like that. NBC just announced the new reality show “Space Race” piloted by reality guru Mark Burnett. (He’s the guy behind “Survivor”) Contestants will claw and cat fight each other for a spot aboard Richard Branson’s SpaceShipTwo, which is in the middle of test flights right now. You can of course buy your own seat on the plane for a mere $250,000.
Well, we can only hope a few of the Desperate Housewives of Orange County or whatever or any of the Kardashians sign up for this one then get stuck outside earth’s orbit. Here’s hoping. (No word yet on when the show is set to begin.)
