Top Ten Authors I’d Like to See on a Reality TVShow

lauren-oliver authors on reality tv shows

1Lauren Oliver on Doomsday Preppers – I dunno…I think she would have a lot of insight on this. I mean, she does talk about the Chicago area kinda gong through something similar…

2Veronica Roth on The Bacehlorette – Even though Veronica Roth is married, I’d love to see who she would choose on The Bachelorette. She is young and fun, and I’m sure she’d pick the one awesome guy on the show.

3Julie Kagawa on Wipe Out — After putting me in suspense so many times with the Iron Fey series, Julie had this coming. Haha, I seriously love this show.

4J.K. Rowling on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – J.K. is probably WAY more loaded than any of these ladies and I totally think her wit and charm could reform them humble them. Also, I just want to see someone genuine on that show (I still love them!!).

5Lauren DeStefano on Jersey Shore – I love Lauren’s spunk and her hilarious tweets. I would also love to see her reaction to Snooki’s ridiculousness.

6Mary V. Snyder on Dancing with the Stars I’m so sure Maria can bust a move. Authors are all secretly agile, right??

7Suzanne Collins on Survivor — I would TOTALLY watch the creator of The Hunger Games on Survivor. It’s like her books in real life…well a pseudo “real” anyway.

8Stephanie Meyer on America’s Got Talent — I will refrain from any Twilight jokes and references to “talent”…but I wonder what weird secret talents Stephanie Meyer has – like crossing her eyes or origami or something.

9Kady Cross on Project Runway — I just pray that all her steampunk awesomness would be highlighted for Tim Gunn’s approval. I’m sure she would make it work…despite potentially being unable to sew.

10Sarah Dessen on Top Chef – Sarah’s a mom, I bet she has some fab recipes up her sleeve. Plus, I’m sure the judges would love hre funny, endearing personality.

What reality show would you like to see your favorite author?

    Those are AWESOME!! J.K. R on The Real Housewives?! I would DIE laughing! I don’t watch that show, but I would for her. And Lauren DeStefano on Jersey Shore!??!?! BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

    • I felt a little guilty forcing these awesome authors onto these vapid shows…but then I laughed and couldn’t stop. lol

  • Lauren

    These are awesome!! Suzanne Collins on Survivor really would be awesome. I’m not sure what authors I’d want to see on reality shows. Maybe Hannah Moskowitz on Big Brother. I think that could be funny!!

  • These are some great ideas! Someone would probably need to remind Suzanne Collins that it’s NOT okay to kill the other contestants… 😀

  • Great choices! This Top Ten has been so much fun.

  • LOL at JKR on Real Housewives. Now THAT I would watch!

    Here’s my TTT!

    J.k. Rowling on Real Housewives would be awesome! I also love the idea of PUNISHING authors for the stress they have induced! (insert evil chuckle here)
