Former Illinois governor wants to join reality TV show


Just when you thought the saga of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich couldn't get any stranger, it has.

Blagojevich wants to star on the NBC reality show "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" — a program similar to "Survivor" in which contestants will be plopped down in the Costa Rican jungle to perform sweaty physical tasks, scheme to avoid elimination and throw tantrums for the camera.

If a federal judge gives permission, the man who faces years in prison on corruption charges could be following in the steps of Flava Flav and Kathy Griffin — D-list celebrities willing to play the clown on TV.
