No longer satisified making money off of fame-seeking bug-eaters, Mark Burnett has registered to sell his entire stake in Martha Stewart Omnimedia, a move that could fetch him $24.5 million.
While not officially a slave trade (Stewart’s company would stand to receive $31.5 million), there’s something about this move that feels eerily like he’s trafficking in human cargo.
Which gives us an idea for a new show: Moguls buy and sell each other. The mogul who buys the most other moguls at the end of the game, wins. And the losers all have to eat a poor person. Mark, call us.
