Fantasy celebrities

27 Mar 2011

So I had a horrible but genius idea today while I was in the car. I have no time or even inclination to follow up on this so I give it to you oh great Internet. If you get rich, send me a check.

What if you crossed the social and game experience of fantasy sports with the apparent obsession of people to follow the lives of celebrities? Instead of picking sports teams, you would get together with friends and pick a team of celebrities for each person in the group to follow. You would then get points for things like: most mentions per week on various entertainment shows, pregnancies, engagements, weddings, new boyfriend/girlfriend (bonus if you have both!), scandals (sex tape, lurid picture, etc).

This really hits all the worst aspects of both fantasy sports and celebrity culture that I find distasteful and puts them together. Enjoy!
