I would say that Kristy Lee Cook is the most annoying person ever to make it into the top 10 on American Idol, but there are really so many terrible contestants that it’s hard to choose. And one of the most interesting parts of the show is what happens after the show – some of the singers catapult to stardom (Clay Aiken, Carrie Underwood), some disappear forever (pretty much everybody from season 1 who wasn’t Kelly Clarkson), some end up in rehab (Jessica Sierra), and some write corny inspirational memoirs (Carmen Rasmusen, Mandisa). However, while quite a few end up on reality TV, I have to say that Kristy Lee Cook’s new reality show about trying to make it in music while also traveling around the country shooting things is probably the most original idea yet. I mean… she tries to make it in music while going around the country shooting things. Do you think her rendition of “God Bless the USA” is going to be the show’s theme song? Is Ted Nugent going to guest star?
