Reality tv cross-pollination

The other day Rebekah and I were watching Supernanny and it occured to me that the host, Jo Frost, has potential to be quite the knockout. I then thought how interesting it would be to see her as a contestant on The Biggest Loser. That led me to thinking about all the different reality tv shows and how it can’t be long before they all start to overlap. A couple that I would like to see:

1. The aforementioned Suppernanny on The Biggest Loser – she’s so regimented on her show that I would imagine she’d do quite well, but I’d secretly love to see her crack, sneak some food, and get caught by her trainer.

2. Donald Trump on Supernanny – I think he’s got a kid, and I imagine he’s sort of an absent father. I’d like to see Supernanny tell the trump off.

3. Just about any reality tv host on Wife Swap – not sure if either Randy or Simon from American Idol are married, but it could create some interesting conflicts. And ps, couldn’t they have come up with a better-sounding name than “wife swap?”
