2017 has been a bona fide hellscape of a year. Donald Trump is President of the United States, there’s a very extremely real possibility of a nuclear war breaking out over a tweet, and there’s a revolving door of Presidential Cabinet members who are constantly being forced to resign. It feels like a bad, feebly-produced reality show scripted by the world’s laziest writers. 

Which reminded me of the greatest worst reality show of all time: Next on MTV. 

Sitting in a room and yelling “NEXT!” whenever a member of his staff has to resign because of Russian ties or committing perjury feels exactly like how Donald Trump treats his hiring process. 

So I took it upon myself and imagined the GOP’s brightest stars as contestants on MTV’s Next.
