Which reality show should your favorite princess be on?

A lot of reality shows have a sort of train wreck appeal to them. It's like a view into the underside of society.

But it occurred to me that it isn't just the Maury Povich Show rejects who end up on these shows. In fact, some people that you know, love, and grew up with could qualify as candidates. The Little Mermaid: Sure, her voice could put her on American Idol, but she's also got a dirty little secret that could land her on Hoarders.
Yeah, Ariel, your collection is more than complete.

Or how about Snow White? That frantic rush through the forest as she ran away from the Queen's huntsman could have been an episode of ManTracker. Or maybe she could do a spin off of Kate Plus Eight.
Snow Plus Seven. It could work.

Here are some other likely pairings.

Aladdin: Cops
Sleeping Beauty: Mystery Diagnosis
Jasmine: The Bachelorette
Beauty: Mr. Personality (Okay, probably most of you never watched this TV show, but I actually liked the premise, even if those dorky masks did make all the guys look like super villains.)
So who are your pics for the best celebrity pairings with reality TV?

Mary Poppins: The Nanny (at least I think that's what it's name is, I only watched one or two partial episodes)

Is this new book research :) or just wonderings of a creative mind?

I think Tiana should be on the Iron Chef--she could add a lot of spice to the show. :)

I like to say that I am against reality tv shows, but I do watch Project Runway. And that Giselle from Enchanted could rock that show she can sew a dress from curtains in one night.

Janette Rallison said...

So true! You all are brilliant--and yep, this pretty much just the wanderings of a creative mind . . . although it would make for an entertaining novel premise . . . I wonder if Disney would sue me.

Ohmygosh, Janette! That is hilarious!

Deborah said...

Oh my heck, I was laughing so hard, I don't have time to think of my own clever idea. I'm still chuckling over yours!

Melanie Jacobson said...

Hahahahahaha!

Belle could have been on that old show, Beauty and the Geek.

Nisa said...

One of the funniest posts! I don't watch TV much, but I know the premise of most of those shows and the match-ups are perfect!

Catherine Stine said...

How about Sleeping Beauty on Celebrity Rehab? Maybe she would've come out of the spell without having to get the prince to kiss her.

Robin Weeks said...

I thought it was awfully convenient that the girl on Mr. Personality ended up with the millionare. Coincidence? Did he really have money and personality? I guess it's possible--he wasn't the most handsome.

Just finished My Double Life, had to take a moment for some cathartic cyber-stalking. When is your next book out? When??

Janette Rallison said...

My Unfair Godmother comes out April 12th, but if you haven't read my other YA novels, there's nine others that you can read in the meantime.

Robin Weeks said...

Yeah--I've already read most of them, and the rest are on my TBR list. Huge fan.

Really looking forward to the next Godmother book, though....

Stephanie said...

Oh my gosh, I'm sooooo excited for "My Unfair Godmother".

My Fair Godmother was the first Janette Rallison book I ever read.

Janet Johnson said...

What great picks! I just don't watch enough reality tv to know!

And oh yay! I just saw in the comments you have "My Unfair Godmother" coming out. I loved "My Fair Godmother" . . . can't wait!

Janette Rallison said...

I'm excited for it to come out to. I think people will really like it.

Which reminds me, I still have to figure out what I'm doing for the third one . . .

Arya said...

Cinderella would do GREAT on Clean House! I can just see her working with Trish and Mat!

Laura B said...

I love the idea of the Little Mermaid on Hoarders!!!
If we're thinking of other Disney characters, how about Mowgli from The Jungle Book on Survivor? Or Tarzan - he'd be great.

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes. Disney would sue you.
