you could've prevented this...

As previously mentioned, I could've been the host for American Idol.    Seriously.  I auditioned.

Which means that there's some alternate universe in which Ryan Seacrest is, quite justifiably, not famous and using that fame for pure, unadulterated evil.  Pure unadulterated evil in the form of producing yet another apocalypse-baiting reality show.  

Look, I want to do unspeakable things to Brody Jenner, but emphasis on unspeakable - as in, he shouldn't.  Ever.   The sad thing about this "Who wants to be a hanger-on to a wannabe?" show is that the idea was floated about in a Details article from, like, a year and a half ago.  An article in which Spencer Pratt, unsurprisingly, comes off as the most desperately craven person alive. The sadder thing is that the only thing more boring than Entourage is a "real" version of it, combined with the dating-as-extreme-sport genre MTV does so well.  

Just imagine that alternate universe for a bit: a world without spin-offs of The Hills (which was a spin-off itself, mind you).  Without Keeping Up with the Kardashians.  Without Denise Richards: It's Complicated.

True, The Soup might be more boring.  But the world would be a better place.
