Survivor: U.S. Congress

An open casting call happened recently for the TV series Survivor. An interesting detail was included in the newspaper writeup:

Also, if you are selected as a contestant, you cannot run for public office
until after the show your are on is broadcast.

That's a rather strange prohibition.

Now, in a sane world, such a statement wouldn't be necessary, as no one would be willing to vote for someone who was on reality TV. But with fame the way it is, it's probably a necessary clause.

But that gives me an idea for a reality TV series I'd watch. Send Jack Abramoff and other corrupt lobbyists and Congressmen to a remote island. Let the winner come back to Congress with a full pardon. The others get to leave Washington for good.
