The B Factor - Auditions (Your suggestions)

We have had a couple of Special Guest Stars here at the studios over the years: First there was Ryan Phillipe, then Zac Efron, then Taylor Lautner, Cody Christian, Justin Bieber, then Nick Jonas, and most recently the trio of Spider-Men Tom Holland + Andrew Garfield + Tobey Maguire.

Sometimes everything went smoothly and civilized: We collected suggestions, we had one or two polls to detemine the winner, I published the story, everybody was happy.

But sometimes there was some drama: people manipulated the polls, people didn't like how the stories turned out, people maniplated the polls again, and people didn't like how the stories turned out once more.

That's why I shied away from having another Special Guest Star story this year. But the thing is: I really like Special Guest Star stories. That's why I was absolutely thrilled when our loyal reader Jason approched me with an idea that would incorporate all the drama into the story: The B Factor.

What is the B Factor, I hear you ask? Why, haven't you heard about it? It's a hugely popular and very successful reality/competition show that's all about ballbusting. (No relation to another show that has a somewhat similar name but the B is swapped for a letter that's far, far later in the alphabet.)

It's been going for quite some time, and now, finally, there's a Celebrity Edition just around the corner. Celebrities are lining up to take part in it, and everybody is very excited!

Here's how it will play out:
  • Auditions: First we'll determine all the celebrity contenders.
  • Selection: Then we'll winnow the field to 12 participants with a poll.
  • Elimination: Each week, one participant gets voted off the show and he'll leave with a short story (very short, more like a snippet).
  • Final: The final two will face off against each other in a story, and you'll determine the winner with a final poll.
  • Winner's reward: The winner will have a story all of his own.
How does that sound? Brilliant, right?

Well, let's waste no more time. Here are the celebrety contenders that have expressed interested so far. Add your own suggestions by sending me an email or by leaving a comment. We'll take your suggestions until the selection poll starts on Monday, October 14th.

From that list I would pick Liam Hemsworth, Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal.
I also second the anonymous suggestion of Jensen Ackles, especially if accompanied by his co-star from Supernatural Jared Padalecki.

Ditto on KJ Apa and Tom Holland.

Also Xolo Maraduena and Tanner Buchanan from Cobra Kai. Altho maybe they would be more fun as a one-off story than as part of the epic B Factor:)
