My Thoughts
My first thought once I saw the cast list was “WHY IS KATE GOSSELIN BACK ON MY TV?” Seriously, why? With that said, I’m sure she will stir up lots of craziness on the show and will probably stay around a while.

When I noticed Kevin Jonas was also on the cast, I thought “Hey, cool! A Jonas Brother!” I would personally prefer Nick, but he’s too busy with an actual career right now. ZING!

I’m also pretty stoked that Gilbert Gottfried is on the cast. I’m sure his voice, which is probably worse than nails on a chalkboard, annoys most people, but I crack up every time I hear it. It makes anything he says funny, whether he’s trying to be funny or not.

Now, I am usually way off on these types of things, but I thought it would be fun to predict who gets fired first and who makes it to the end. Let’s see just how far off I am once the show starts!

Who’s gonna get fired first? I’m gonna go with Lorenzo Lamas.

Who’s going to win? I have a feeling it’s going to be Kate Gosselin (as much as it pains me to say it). Why, because that’s just the kind of luck I have.
