    Is he or is he not retiring? Supposedly Minnesota was Favre's last hurrah after he announced his third retirement in January.

    The reality show that has become Brett Favre's life may finally come to an end in his NFL career, but surely will not end soon as a celebrity.

    Rumors have swirled about Favre being a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars." Favre's daughter, Brittany, refuted those rumors today on Twitter. I do not think Favre has any strength or even an ankle left to walk straight, let alone dance on.

    Favre has gone through some very tough injuries in his career. He set the NFL record for playing more games in a row than any other player.

    He is one tough athlete who draws a lot of attention. That is why he should be on these other reality shows.

10. COPS

    "Brett Favre has a gun for an arm." We have heard this line too many times during Favre's career in the NFL.

    But it is true though. So, why not put it to good use?

    Brett Favre would be a star on "COPS." He would be the perfect partner for any police officer. Favre's arm could knock any running criminal down in a heap. He would just need to ask the department to increase the supply of footballs as expenses.

    I would also like to see him tackle someone. I know he is dying to do so after being hit so many times himself.

9. Fear Factor

    Think Brett Favre is as tough as you think? Well, let us find out once and for all then.

    Favre being a contestant on "Fear Factor" will take away his athletic abilities. It will test his mental strength and his internal intestines.

    He has showed some emotion through his retirement press conferences. Imagine what he will look like sticking a cockrouch in his mouth.

8. America's Next Top Model

    Favre is known for his modeling of Wrangler jeans, but has also endorsed products like Prilosec, Mastercard and Nike.

    Favre is a perfect fit for "America's Next Top Model."

    He has the older-wiser man look, but with the sleek-athletic attitude.

7. Jersey Shore

    Imagine "MVP" teaming up with a real-life NFL MVP. That would be insane.

    Favre would act as their older brother, who is still looking to club and have fun.

    Watch out for Favre's fist pump though. His arm could hurt someone.

    Favre will also have tons of stalkers too, as we all are too familiar with at the "Jersey Shore."

6. Laguna Beach

    While we are on the subject of beaches, let us go with "Laguna Beach" next.

    Only Favre knows how to muster up more drama than the drama queens of "Laguna Beach" did when the show was in existence.

    It also would not hurt Favre to finally get out of the cold weather. He has been up North his whole career.

5. America's Funniest Home Videos

    Search "Brett Favre bloopers" on the Internet and you will see my reasoning for this reality show.

    The top one of the list by far has to be Favre getting hit below the belt in training camp this past year.

    This type of programming will draw thousands of viewers.

4. The Big Break

    Brett Favre is now a retired professional athlete. What is he going to do next?

    How about hitting up the links down in the Caribbean for some golf on the Golf Channel's "Big Break"?

    Favre is actually a pretty good golfer. He has a handicap very close to being scratch. He has played in many celebrity golf outings to raise money.

    He may even find his way onto the Senior Tour.

3. Dateline NBC: To Catch a Predator

    "Hi, Brett. Why don't you have a seat...right over there."

    Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" is a now cancelled show that Favre would be on if it was still running.

    Favre sent inappropriate pictures to Jenn Sterger, a former Jets on-air personality, while he was with the Jets in 2008. Favre was 38 and Sterger was 24 at the time.

2. Survivor

    Like it or not, Brett Favre will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play football.

    He will also go down as one of the toughest, as he played through multiple nagging injuries throughout his career, including a fractured ankle this past season.

    I have to give Favre credit for his sportsmanship and determination. If his team was going to lose, it was not going to be because he did not try his hardest day in and day out.

    Favre put out 110 percent every single day.

1. The Brett Favre Show

    OK, so let us combine these nine previous shows and make a mega hit featuring Favre as the lead man.

    Just imagine the possibilities. You thought "Jersey Shore" was creative? Wait until you see the nationwide publicity that this hit gets.

    In all seriousness though, Brett Favre may be criticized for the rest of his life by the media, but he will always go down as number one in all the history books.
