Today's Blind Items

Before the blind item, I just wanted to let you know there will be some FFF tomorrow.

This is one of the more bizarre things I have ever heard. This male reality star is on an A list reality show. A recurring reality show with the same cast, not some random dude on Survivor. Anyway, this star carries a bag with him wherever he goes. That is not unusual. What is unusual is that he always keeps $50,000 in the bag with him at all times. Never more and never less. He doesn't keep it a big secret. He just always says it is if he ever needs to get away quickly he has the means. The question is why would he need to get away quickly. People have asked him. He always says, "you never know." What the hell does that mean?

IDK, I soooo don't watch reality tv.

Quintessential Southerner said...

rev run?

Mooshki said...

Woo! FFF!!!

Justin Bobby?

Jasmine said...

tyson beckford from that model show? he can get away with carrying a man-bag

Jasmine said...

OR i just thought of it....maybe Ryan Seacrest?

Goodgrief said...

Thank you in advance for the FFF. As for the blind, it's anybodies guess. I don't know. I was just happy about the FFF. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be a very bad day for me and I will need something to make me happy.

Moosefan said...

You never know? Who and what did he do to have the necessity of a "you never know" bag? My Great Aunt used to keep 5 grand in a coffee can in the freezer behind the butter beans. We told her to take it to the bank-she said, well, you never know when you might need some cheer up money or there is a disaster..Either way, he is ready to get really really happy or he is waiting for the next earthquake!

figgy said...

Ty Pennington, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, ftw

Jennifer said...

I was thinking Trump. But it's not the same cast.

What about Simon from Real Housewives NYC?

David said...

Simon Cowell

L said...

Someone on Dancing w/the Stars? Steve-O?

ms snarky said...

What reality show has a recurring cast? My first inclination would be Brett Michaels, Rock of Love. But I'm thrown by recurring cast.

How about Dr. Drew? ha.

Ice Angel said...

Jon Gosselin?

Pookie said...

it's gotta be someone w/ a paranoid edge. jon gosselin maybe?

Margaret said...

I'm with Figgy. For some reason, I think this is Ty.

amazonblue said...

Tim Gunn, just because it seems so out of character.

captivagrl said...

the dude on Deadliest Catch that almost went overboard, not the one that went overboard

figgy said...

Jon Gosselin is a HIGHlarious guess, Pookie! haha

DNfromMN said...

I'm liking the Spencer Pratt guess.

and seconding the thanks for FFF.

Paranoia will destroy ya.....

Rocket Queen said...

"A-list" reality show? What would even qualify besides Survivor, Amazing Race, Apprentice, ANTM and Project Runway? Other than PR, I don't watch them, but anyone on The Hills has to have a bunch of cash stashed away anyway, right?

nancer said...

i wouldn't call 'rock of love' and A list reality show.

nancer said...

or 'the hills' for that matter. HAHAA.

Georgeann said...

I think reality shows with recurring casts would be something like the hills, hogan knows best, run's house, jon and kate plus eight, life on the d-list, keeping up w/kardashians, stuff like that where season after season it's focused on the same group of people. I wouldn't consider Rock of Love, American Idol, etc to have recurring casts.

As far as the blind, i have no idea but I feel like it was probably someone who was a nobody before their show, like Jon Gosselin or Spencer or else there would have been a hint as to what they did before the show. I can't think of a ton of reality shows focused on random, non famous people. I feel like most are based on d-list has-been celebs. What about one of the ones based on businesses, like sunset tan or shear genius? I don't watch them so can't name names though...

Rocket Queen said...

brendalove: and just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you ;)

Cheryl said...

Survivorman

Janepod said...

Ryan Seacrest.

ardleigh said...

You never know when....

An angry mob will seek you out with pitchforks and torches.

When that twit you married TWICE
will catch on you're as fake as your teeth and hair.

When an Olsen will trash you on Lettermen... AGAIN.

When Satan will try and reclaim the soul you sold for your 15 mins of fame.

When you will have to pay off the paps you have follow you around so you get your face everywhere.

...................................
I don't REALLY think it's Spencer I was just having fun.

Bleacher Bunny said...

Brody Jenner

Get a Life said...

Jon from Jon & Kate Plus 8 soon to be Kate Plus 8.

Lori said...

Ha! My first thought was Simon from the Real Housewives, but I think it is Simon Cowell. Ryan Seacrest is too neurotic for this. And if it's an A-list, recurring show, I think it has to be on a network. I never even heard of Jon & Kate until this scandal. I also thought Trump, but the Apprentice is definitely no longer A-list.

jax said...

Dog the Bounty Hunter.
ALWAYS carries a fanny pack (shocker)

Stardust said...

ooooooo, good guess Jax

janele said...

If this blind had been about a *game show*, then I would easily see Howie Mandel do this.

So, my guess will be Michael Kors of Project Runway. I don't know what his handbags are like, but the next time I ever go shopping, I'll check to see if they are large enough to carry $50K.

Lauren said...

What about anybody on real world/road rule challenges? There is always more or less the exact same contestants and most of them make their living this way.

ardleigh said...

I like Jax's guess. Very logical.

Suzanne said...

I like the Dog the Bounty Hunter guess ...

but what about Duff from the Ace of Cakes show? I guess it's not exactly A-List -- but it's just a thought.

Also, YAY for FFF

Adam said...

Simon Cowell. Or possibly Ms. Jay from ANTM *LOL*

Harriet Hellfire said...

That was me, didn't realize he was logged on.

curlysher said...

Phil from The Amazing Race

bookjacket said...

You know who this sounds like? Matt Roloff from Little People Big World. That guy loves spending money, and is always convinced some crazy extravagant thing he's buying or building is an absolute necessity. It drives his wife nuts. If it's him, I'd bet she's the one person he hasn't told!

Char said...

I definitely thought Spencer from the Hills immediately. I can just hear him saying that too.

margarita said...

Seacrest, because he's the Affleck of TV blinds.

Andy said...

Captain Sig from "Deadliest Catch."

xD

RagDoll said...

I think Georgeann nailed it

It's Hulk Hogan, and with what has been implied about his finances by those "he's close to"? It's not too hard to figure out why.... basically, he did the same thing a lot of folks did when he real estate market was on fire. I mean, how much of his money is tied up in FL ( one of the the most crash and burn states) real estate/FL business endeavors? Divorce? How easy and fast is it to fly to the Caymans on a private plane from FL and make a deposit?

mygeorgie said...

So doesn't fit the clues, but Justin from "Departures". I can totally see him looking into the camera and saying, "You never know." with a shrug and a sexy, smarmy smile.

Ya, I'd do 'im :)

Miss X said...

Figgy, I like your guess. I'm on the Ty Pennington train!

Kim said...

Actually you'd be surprised at how small a space $50,000 actually takes up. Especially if it's in hundreds.

No guesses though.

Jamie's Girl said...

It would have to be someone who can defend his $50K Man purse. I mean European Carry-all.

I thought Simon Cowell, and you never know when the ATM's are going to be knocked out by a Satelitte loss. BTW, The Terrorists are supposed to strike again and this time they are going to try to send panic by the Govt shutting satellites down because of phones, which means no moola. So if you hear an explosion on TV, run to the atm.

Judi said...

I agree, Jamie's Girl, so I think it's either Hulk or Dog, like Jax said.

nunaurbiz said...

I think everyone here is wrong. And when I say who my guess is, if you've seen the show, you will see how well it fits.

Gene Simmons.

Hotseat said...

occam's razor says this is a bullshit affectation that sounds like some ghetto posturing bullshit. (Like wearing a shitload of diamonds and making it rain)

BinkyM said...

@nunaurbiz, I was reading through all of these thinking that no one had nailed it yet (nothing went "Ding! Ding! Ding!" in my brain) until I saw your message. Yours dinged.

If his show is still on, I'll bet he's the answer. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if he does exactly what's been described. He's a pussyhound, an oddball, and yet a practical thinker who'd want (and need!) to make a quick getaway (or would want someone else to make a quick getaway), and $50K would do the trick. It would come in handy as a payoff, too.

Good answer!

KellyLynn said...

I realize that my view of A-list reality shows may be skewed, but I really think this blind refers to Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs (and narrator for Deadliest Catch). He had an interview in Fast Company about a year ago that makes me think he'd be the type.

Jason said...

Mikey Teutul from American Chopper. Odd, recurring, A list show. He's just the guy to do this kind of thing: to be weird for weird's sake.

Katja said...

I could see a few of my chef crushes doing this- Tony, Mario, totally. Heck I could see the Ace of Cakes people keeping Vegas cash too. Well know you know the TV I watch! But I don't know what the ratings are for Top Chef, Iron Chef or No Reservations but this is totally the way Chef's look at the world from my experience in kitchen life.

Katja said...

then again Snoop has a show...

c17 said...

I have no idea who this is.

But I totally understand why he'd keep that "security" at hand. You never know what circumstances could arise & when you might need to have that kind of cash around. Ent, I really don't understand why you'd think that was odd considering how our gov't is nowadays. Even with Obama in the main seat, you never know what the local/state law enforcement is ready to pull on you.

kelsey said...

jason and/or grant from ghost hunters!

YOU NEVER KNOW

NatalieSF said...

Snoop hands down. There are pics of him- often with a bag. Probably bail money if he gets arrested for smoking pot in public! haha

Nickname unavailable said...

Isnt a-list and reality show an oxymoron?

La Doña said...

Dr. Ray from Dr. 90210. He grew up in Brazil, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was ready for anything to go down!

moxie said...

I've read all the comments and I like the Dog the Bounty Hunter guess the best. I once had around $7,000 in 100 dollar bills, and going by my memory of what it was like to hold that, I think you could fit 50k in a fanny pack.

Gene Simmons seems like the type, but his Family Jewels reality show is not even close to being considered an A list show. It's entertaining for a heavily scripted "reality" show though. I like his kids.

Rocket Queen said...

Gene Simmons has a reality show? Good lord. Is it really A list?

Jamie said...

I'm ready for FFF!!! I need pics!

nunaurbiz said...

"Family Jewels" was A&E's most popular series next to "Dog the Bounty Hunter." Love both shows! Still think Gene fits the blind :-)

nunaurbiz said...

Besides, I don't think Beth would trust Dog with that much money all at once, do you??? :-D

Katja said...

I think A CDAN reality show would rock! i see powerpuffs..southparkers,simpsons, pizzas... an instant classic. btw it kind of pisses me off that someone is so 'whatever' about $50 thousand dollars.
