Norm Coleman: The next reality show star?

Note: This contest has ended. The winner is listed below.

NBC has asked former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to star in the reality series “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” wherein he’d be dropped into the middle of the Costa Rican jungle “to face challenges designed to test [his] skills in adapting to the wilderness.” With hopes growing dim of Norm Coleman heading back to Washington, you’ve got 140 characters to come up with a reality show featuring the former Minnesota senator.

Follow MinnPost on Twitter and tweet your show name and concept, including “#mp140” in your reply. One winner and five honorable mentions will be posted Friday morning. 

Final update:
Thanks to MinnPost’s followers on Twitter, Norm Coleman has quite a few reality show options awaiting him should the recount appeals not go his way. The winner, Jackie Funk of Minneapolis, will receive two tickets to the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg performing “Onegin” at Northrop Auditorium on Friday, April 24.

The best of the best:

    It’s Rod, not Rob. Which is easy to remember for me, anyway, being that Rod sounds funnier.
