Why?

THIS has managed to get a TV deal.

From EW:

”Reality production company 44 Blue Prods. has signed a development deal with Chris Crocker, the Internet star whose tear-filled defense of Britney Spears, following her MTV Video Music Awards performance, has generated close to eight million hits on YouTube in just one week. Crocker is a 19-year-old who lives with his grandparents in Tennessee. Prior to the Britney video, Crocker developed an audience with videos on MySpace in which he expressed his opinion on various topics. ''It's going to pretty much be the 'Chris Crocker experience,''' said 44 Blue co-founder Rasha Drachkovitch of the new TV show. ''We consider him a rebel character that people will find interesting. He's going to be a TV star.'' Since his Britney video blew up, Crocker has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and inspired a spoof from Seth Green (Robot Chicken).”

What ever happened to real celebrities?
People like this who constantly seek attention by posting videos on You Tube are just asking for trouble.
The entertainment machine will eat these people up and spit them out.
Today’s internet weirdo is tomorrows’ drug addicted has-been.
Do we really think someone like this has the emotional/mental resources to survive Hollywood?

Leave You Tube freaks on You Tube and off my TV please!
