Top Ten Authors I'd Like to See on a Reality Show

For Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Authors I'd Like To See On A Reality Show OR Top Ten Authors Who Deserve Their Own TV Show

1. Vladimir Nabokov

The man once said his books were the best ever written. I'd like to see him on Hell's Kitchen or American Idol.

2. Dave Eggers

From his first book, I'd send him the route of Nabokov, but after hearing him speak, I'd give him a show about his efforts to help inner-city kids develop their literacy skills.

3. J.K. Rowling

Who doesn't want to know more about J.K. Rowling? Or she could just write a Harry Potter TV series and give cozy talks afterward. I'd watch it.

4. Mark Twain

He was a traveling show unto himself. I'd watch him on TV.

5. Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

See above. I'd also be interested in having him write a show.

6. Azar Nafisi

I heard her talk once, she is magnificent. Give her a soapbox and let her go.

7. Victoria Sweet

I want to give her a show advising people, doctors, hospitals, and the government what to do about healthcare. She could do demonstrations of medieval medicine too.

8. Ayn Rand

It might be fun just to hear her talk or put her on Survivor with Nabokov. Let them duke it out.

9. Gregory Maguire

Heard him talk, he even did a song and dance routine! He gets a show. I would watch.

10. David Rees

I basically just saw him give a show the other night on pencil sharpening. I laughed a lot. I'd syndicate that.
