Journalists are no strangers to hosting reality shows (who can forget Anderson Cooper on “The Mole?”), but a potential new CBS reality show–to be hosted by OWN correspondent and former ABC and CNN correspondent Lisa Ling–might take the cake.
The idea behind the show: Five qualified folks, chosen from an applicant pool of thousands, compete for a chance to win a gig at a well-known company. Each week will feature a different batch of contestants and, we assume, a new company (shades of Undercover Boss, sans the undercover part).
Yup, now in order to get a normal job, you might have to appear on a ridiculous reality show, hosted by a journalist no less. Want to become McDonalds’ next burger flipper? Then sign that NDA!
