Hindsight is 20/20. That's how these potential
candidates will be rated. How did their decisions about
how to deal with actual situations the real president had
face during their 4 year realty show / mock presidency
For instance, say there's an actual pandemic. Regardless
what the real president does, all of the "on deck"
presidents would register how they'd handle it. Their
timing would be critical, they'd be asked how to react
"I don't know." would not be acceptable.
So one guy, Joe Smith, a successful small businessman
Chicago might say "Block all travel to and from the area
where the pandemic is originating." while a competitor
John Brown, a lawyer from San Francisco might say
xenophobic, we need to allow travel from that area so
look like nice people." In a few months, the responses
tested against actual responses, John Brown is
by the fact that his decision would have resulted in the
deaths of tens if not hundreds of thousands of people
Joe would win this round be doing the correct thing.
This would go on for 4 years and the candidates /
competitors would be scored on how many decisions
correct minus how many were wrong, just like the game
show Jeopardy. For fun, there could be a tally of how
deaths resulted from certain decisions. "Dave Green from
New York, you decided to nuke Russia for buying
ads trying to influence the coming election, fully 30% of
the world population would have been wiped out by that
decision, what do you have to say for yourself?" "Well,
frankly I'd do it again, somebody needs to stand up to
and you need to break a few eggs to make an omelette."
vaporize a third of the world human beings?" "Hey man,
whatever it takes." Dave Green would not move to to
However, let's say Joe Smith came up with a 90% "good
call" rating. He could take that record to a real run for
And like The Masked Singer, you wouldn't be able to know
their political party because people would mindlessly
just pick the stupid candidate from their party no matter
how badly they did.
Addendum: There could be a play at home version on
line where you can see how well you'd do as president.
