Have you ever been channel surfing and come across a reality show with such lame, mundane content, you can't believe anyone bothered to put it on TV? Following an exterminator, for instance? Listening to a couple of bakers have an in-depth discussion on whether the cupcakes should be baked for 14 minutes or 15 minutes? Watching young, underdressed and undereducated New Jersey residents get drunk, vomit and pass out?

When you read reports of 'Jersey Shore' reality star Snooki demanding, and getting, a whopping $30,000 per episode and up to $20,000 each for personal appearances, based only on her strategically placed bumps and willingness to get sloshed on cue, you can't help but think, "My friends/family/job (pick one) is so much more interesting! "Maybe I could become rich and famous as a reality star with my own show on TV."
