Kerr, Banzhaf To Star in Reality Shows During Sabbaticals


Professors Kerr and Banzhaf will each appear in reality TV shows during their upcoming sabbaticals - Professor Orin Kerr will be a contestant on next season's "American Idol" and Professor John Banzhaf will appear on "Survivor: Lubbock."

Said Professor Kerr, "Since I was a kid, I've been a huge fan of Donny Osmond, so I'll be performing two


of his biggest hits - Soldier of Love and Puppy Love. He's really my inspiration for this. I get my courage to kind of branch out beyond the legal profession from him. He's really had a vibrant, multivaried career himself."

CBS is pleased to have a law professor of Mr. Banzhaf's caliber appear on "Survivor: Lubbock." According to CBS, "We're taking the show to the next level with this season - Lubbock, Texas is one of the most dangerous locations in the world - cockroaches, poor people, Texas Tech University fraternities and sororities, and Piggly Wiggly grocery stores - these are all challenges that our savvy contestants like Mr. Banzhaf, Esq. will face."

Anthropologists and ecologists are concerned about the impact that filming the season of Survivor will have on the Lubbock ecosystem and indigenous inhabitants.
