Spencer Pratt Leaving The Hills to Fight Cyber Crime

Spencer Pratt Is Leaving The Hills to Fight Cyber Crime

There's a new cyber superhero about to wipe the Internet clean of crime — and his name is Spencer Pratt. You know and love the newlywed from his spot on The Hills, but Spencer announced today that he'll be taking a break from the MTV show to focus on finishing his stint at USC — where he's studying software engineering and encryption — then will head to work in the cyber security department at American Defense Enterprises. He says:

My new mission is this: To do my part in maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent emerging technologies from threatening our nation’s security.

Although Spencer is all over Twitter (and knows how to market music videos on YouTube with the best of 'em), I'm a little surprised at his geeky career change, which will take him away from the Hollywood spotlight. What about you — do you feel safer knowing that Spencer will be watching our backs online?

I'm hoping this is a huge joke. This guy is pathetic. I'm surprised he even knew what software encryption was. He's going to fail miserably at this career I'm sure - unless they plan on making a crappy reality show out of him trying to make something useful out of his life. Either way we're screwed.

I seriously hope that this is some kind of joke.

No way. I only watch The Hills when my wife does, but based on that built up character (with the assumption that this show is all or part reality TV) he's the last person I'd trust with our personal or other livelihood. In fact, I could easily picture him as the evil villain, sneaking his way into a government service as a"supposed" good guy only to wreak havoc on the world. :| Sounds like a scary new reality show to me.

I quite possibly am more scared now than ever of a cyber attack on the US.
