Justin Bieber is a Pro Activ pitchman. He is beloved, revered and worshipped by teen girls the globe over. He appears in a cancer awareness commercial. He has taken a left turn as a dramatic actor in CSI. Oh, and he's a singer, too. The well-coiffed Bieb does it all and is about to add another job to his resume. The Bieb may take on a new gig as the host of an exhumed version of Punk'd on MTV!
Reports indicate that the Bieb is close to signing a deal that would find him taking over for former host Ashton Kutcher, who would stay on in an executive producer capacity. The show went off the air in 2007, but was popular during its run, thanks to the practical jokes that were played on unsuspecting celebrities via hidden camera and that often yielded hilarious, totally unscripted results. How much fun was it to watch celebs blowing up over little things, only to find out it was all a big joke.
No date has been set for a premiere, but the show would likely return in 2011, according to sources.
Would Bieber be a good host of Punk'd or is he too sweet and cute for the gig? Who would make a better host than the Bieb? What celebs would you like to see on Punk'd? Is the world ready for Punk'd, V. 2.0?
