Who Would You Put In Your Celebrity 'Hunger Games'?
For those unfamiliar with the most popular thing in the world right now, 'The Hunger Games' is a film based on a young adult book of the same name that is had the third best opening weekend of all time last weekend, and did some pretty brisk business this past wekeend as well. It imagines a world in which a fascist government pits 24 children and teens against each other in battle, with only one winner emerging while the rest die either at each other's hands or through exposure to the elements.
Let me start off by saying I love the premise. More specifically, I really like the idea of killing 23 people. However, I'm not going to suggest we kill innocent kids. Rather, I revel in the idea of pitting celebrities against each other year after year, if only to remind them that they work for us. The whole premise of 'The Hunger Games' is that the children are killed to demonstrate the govermnment's superiority over the citizens. Can't we do the same thing over celebrities? I mean, we create celebrities. We should be able to destroy them, too.
With that in mind, here are the 24 celebrities I would suggest be entered into the first annual Celebrity Hunger Games. I will offer their names without commentary, and I will not name who I think the winner would be, though I certainly have one in mind.
