When Jon Stewart retired from The Daily Show, there has been some severe speculation about his next career move. Apparently he tried his stint at wrestling on Sunday night in Brooklyn at the WWE SummerSlam 2015, but we’re talking long-term career moves here. The good people at Bustle have compiled a hilarious list of 6 potential career paths. We’re voting for number 3, because the idea of Mr. Stewart playing alongside Nicole Richie on Candidly Nicole might be one of the greatest ideas EVER.
As according to Bustle:
Nicole Richie’s Doppelgänger
Nicole Richie is one of my most favorite humans on this planet and if you haven’t seen her reality TV series on VH1, you need to check out Candidly Nicole (and no one paid me for that plug, it’s just that great). On a recent episode, Nicole spent the entire episode holding auditions for a Nicole Richie doppelgänger who would enable her to be in two places at once. How perfect would it be if Jon Stewart served some time as Nicole Richie’s better half? That would make for some great TV.
Their other ideas are as follows:
Stewart already showed his chops in the ring and I would totally be down to see more of this, preferably with a more WWE-esque costume next time, complete with elaborate stage makeup, an epic entrance song, and an official wrestling name.
The Man Behind Zingbot on Big Brother
The infamous robot that slings disses at the Big Brother contestants is one of the best parts of each season of Big Brother. But alas, as accomplished as CBS is, the Zingbot is not, in fact, an actual robot. Yes, there is a man behind the Zingbot mask. How great would it be if they unveiled the man behind Zingbot and it was none other than the man who has been Zinging people on The Daily Show for years? As an added twist, the BB production team could even make it so Zingbot is in the house for the entire show.
A One Direction Member
With the devastating news of One Direction’s possible demise, the world was shocked. There seems to be a time cap on our favorite boy band and that’s not okay. Perhaps the wounds would be healed slightly if Jon Stewart joined these British boy band babes for one last hurrah.
Host of The Bachelor
I do love me some Chris B. Harrison but it seems like The Bachelor franchise is finally learning to poke a bit of fun at themselves and it’s about time because the show is just a bit of a joke at this point (an entertaining one, but still a joke). How great would it be if Jon Stewart narrated The Bachelor and its sister shows? He could even co-host with Chris. Just imagine all the riffing that would go on.
Presidential Debate Moderator
Because I had to put at least one realistic option on this list.
