For whatever reason, every television network simultaneously ran out of ideas for television shows and decided to film “reality TV.” I’m not convinced it’s even real – it might be scripted, making it even more of a waste. But assuming it’s real, there are some shows that just haven’t been shown that I might enjoy. Shows that may even be spinoffs from some reality shows that have already happened.

You can put anyone that you wish on the rocket.  Candidates should widely and grandiosely contribute nothing to society as a whole and usually be annoying to the point of cartoonish unbelievability.  Honorees who have punched a ticket on my personal launches in the past include Paris Hilton,  Alex Rodriguez, Mel Gibson and all members of the band Nickelback.

But, now we’re going public with this.  In this inaugural edition of the EJSIC version of Rocket to the Sun, I submit the following passengers:
