The Apocalypse Cometh: Chris Crocker Inks TV Deal

by at . Comments

Next thing you know, the seas will start boiling, pigs will fly, Heidi Montag will stop begging for attention and OJ Simpson will be elected President.

The above scenarios don't seem all that far fetched now that Chris Crocker, the 19-year-old Tennessean and MySpace/YouTube sensation, has a TV deal.

That's right, the whiny one, whose tearful plea to "Leave Britney Alone" rocked YouTube the week after the Britney Spears' VMA implosion has signed a deal to develop his own show with reality-TV producer 44 Blue Productions.

According to Variety, the company's plan is to build a new "documentary-soap" around the life of Chris Crocker. "It's pretty much going to be 'the Chris Crocker experience,'" 44 Blue's president tells the publication. "We consider him a rebel character that people find interesting. He's going to be a TV star."

Rebel? We could think of some other words to describe Chris Crocker, but we'll let this one pass. Such absurdity speaks for itself, after all. Only in America.

Left: Britney Spears melts down at the VMAs. Right: Chris Crocker pleads for people to leave Britney alone... and scores his own reality TV show out of it.

Since his tirade against the mean celebrity gossip world, Crocker has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and his Britney rant was spoofed by Seth Green.

@crocker is pathetic, But he believes none of that BS in the videos as he's already made new videos explaining that. Again, his whole I love Britney more than everything, was not to be taken seriously. People like you are pathetic. Get a life. How do I know you don't have one? Because anyone with a life wouldn't waste their time doing what your doing. Yes, some people watch vids during their entertainment time, but you apparently look for things to bash to help deal with your blatant homophobia. Your reaction is that of a scared person. Get over it!

I do think he is outrageous and much more fun than any other youtube personality currently on the site. The reality of his situation, a gay boy in a homophobic town, is also compelling. However, he has been treated as the "flavor of the day" for the Britney video and won't be given the treatment needed to create a "rebel" character. That would require something other than a dying medium, the reality show. His 15 seconds are up.

The reason he got so many views of this one video? first off he used CHEATS. Page refreshers and dummy accounts. Then after his video was shown.. people go to his videos now only to MAKE FUN of this idiot. By the way. The media needs to pick up on the video he deleted, BUT not before YouTubers copied it Called Chris Crocker 911..where Chris is telling us that his Idol Britney is more important then September 11th and why we should care about this stupid singer over those who died.
He also has a Pro Incest video where he is making out with his brother. Chris Crocker about my brother is the name of the video.
This guy should be on Jerry Springer.

"We consider him a rebel character that people find interesting. He's going to be a TV star." Well, I'm not entirely sure, how overly dramatic post-pubescent queen/tranny translates into being a rebel character. People find him interesting because one, he's a complete Nelly, which is comical in itself and two, he's riduculously over-emotional about the most mundane things. He's interesting because he's just so damned pathetic...NOT because he's some sort of rebel. America has, since the Simpsons, been fueled and entertained by the completely stupid. Simple. Chris Crocker is just another dirty sock on the laundry pile.
