10 Footballers We'd Love to See on a Reality Show

0 of 10

    Reality shows: depending on your point of view, they're either a sign of the end of Western Civilization or the best thing EVAR!

    But what if we combined reality shows with footballers, another source of endless entertainment?

    We think you'll agree that it would be both hysterically funny strangely genius.

    Seriously, where else do you get characters like Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Maradona and Mario Balotelli?

    Nowhere—that's where.

1. Diego Maradona

1 of 10

    Model show: The Osbournes

    Name of his show: D10S

    Premise: None.

    Cameras follow Maradona wherever he goes. Maradona does crazy stuff.

    Wildly high ratings ensue.

    I'd watch this show, by the way.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo

2 of 10

    Model show: The Pickup Artist

    Name of his show: Rich and Handsome

    Premise: Mr. Rich and Handsome helps a bunch of lovable losers become bona fide European gigolos, complete with instructions on how to lure five hookers to an orgy in a Jacuzzi.

    I would watch this show too.

3. David Beckham

3 of 10

    Model show: Real Housewives series

    Name of his show: Posh and Becks

    Premise: Posh spends a bunch of money and gets facelifts while Becks is rarely seen, except while wearing underwear at the most inappropriate times imaginable.

4. Joey Barton

4 of 10

    Model show: I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

    Name of his show: I'm Joey Barton… And You're Not!

    Premise: Joey Barton walks around insulting people. Everybody hates him.

    Then he leaves the pitch.

5. Mario Balotelli

5 of 10

    Model show: The Real World

    Name of his show: Why Always Me?

    Premise: Mario struggles to find his place in the real world along with a group of five house-mates.

    The cameras decide the other cast members suck and only follow Mario around.

    Hilarity ensues, as do great ratings.

    I'd watch this one as well.

6. Clint Dempsey

6 of 10

    Model show: The Contender

    Name of his show: Deuces Wild

    Premise: Dempsey, an aspiring rapper himself, launches the career of a hip-hop artist by whittling down a field of wannabes.

    I’d definitely watch this.

7. Carlos Tevez

7 of 10

    Model show: Big Brother

    Name of his show: Keeping Up With Carlos

    Premise: Tevez plays the game within the game, forging and breaking alliances with his teammates.

    He wins by securing the best deal for himself.

8. Marouane Chamakh

8 of 10

    Model show: Pros vs. Joes

    Name of his show: Me Against The World

    Premise: Marouane Chamakh gives fans the chance to live out a dream by playing them one-on-one in front of the cameras.

    He almost always loses.

9. Wayne Rooney

9 of 10

    Model show: Tommy Lee Goes To College

    Name of his show: Wayne Walks To Work

    Premise: Wayne Rooney gets a minimum-wage job and tries to fit in.

    Gary Neville also stars as Rooney's co-worker. Just because.

10. John Terry

10 of 10

    Model show: Blind Date

    Name of his show: Win A Date With John Terry

    Premise: John Terry dates his teammates’ wives and girlfriends.

    Wait, what? That’s already happened?
