Report: JetBlue Escapee Steven Slater Offered Reality Show


It was/is inevitable:

"According to well-placed industry sources ... Stone Entertainment -- a powerhouse in the reality TVworld -- is going after Slater to host a show in which various disgruntled workers quit their jobs in extravagant ways. But reality TV is a fickle thing ... if Slater's story turns out to be a big hoax -- which we're thinkin' is the case -- the offer could disappear as fast as it came. Still, we're told Slater's lawyer has received the offer."

  1. This is a huge problem in society, and it's constantly reinforced by the TV networks:

    Do something outrageously stupid, and profit and fame follows. All this serves to do is encourage people to do increasingly stupid things in the hopes of getting those 15 minutes from one of the billion TV networks that has no problem putting a billion stupid "reality" shows on the air, because a billion retarded Americans will watch.

    It's little wonder this country is going to hell in a handbasket.

  2. What am I missing - I don't seen anything happen in this video.

    Also, that damn Butterfinger ad and its auto-start audio will drive people from this site.

  3. Why did this guy open the emergency chute and endanger ground crew when the jetway was already in place? What an ass.

  5. No he should get some therapy, he should get a fair trial, but no way should he become reality TV's flavor of the month. This behavior calls for punishment not reward.

  6. I'm sorry but I'm not getting the interest in this guy, esp. on TR. Is he gay? If so, why is anyone celebrating someone so clearly missing some marbles?

  7. The airlines have made flying such a nightmare that everyone has fantasize about doing SOMETHING. I get this guy. When you add in all the ways corporate America puts the screws to us is it any wonder this guy becomes a hero? Did you see his perp walk? He's hilarious. As long as he stays outta politics, I'm cool with him.

  11. I thought this guy was awesome until I saw that the plane was AT THE GATE. Idiot.

  12. I thought he'd be better off with a call-in radio show...
