Buzz In: Which Former Teen Idols Would You Put on VH1?

It's a weird world where Scott Baio can become a programming tycoon, but I guess that's what two successful "celebreality" shows can do these days. Following the success of Scott Baio is 45 . . . And Single and Scott Baio is 46 . . . And Pregnant, Baio is launching a reality show that aims to do for others what VH1 did for him.

Here's the idea: Eight teen idols from the '80s and '90s, all guys, will live in a house together and reflect on the best and worst parts of their short-lived fame. With help from life coaches and experts in the entertainment industry, they'll come to a decision by the end of the show: either pursue fame again, or promise to stay far away from Hollywood for good.

So now, here's the key question: Which eight male former heartthrobs would you want to see in the house? Frankly, after The Two Coreys, I would veto both Haim and Feldman. But an appearance by Kirk Cameron could be great, if only because I'd love to see what he's saying these days. Fred Savage might be doing too well to qualify, but what about Corin "Corky" Nemec of Parker Lewis Can't Lose?

OK, your turn! Which teen idols would you put in that house?

Joey Lawrence. Whoa! I was going to say that kid from SeaQuest, but I think he passed away, so that really wouldn't make a good show...

I don't know if I want that considering what some VH1 shows are like.

I love the Wil Wheaton suggestion! I had the biggest crush on him when I was younger.

Wil Wheaton, myself, thought I think he is doing great on the technology side of things. How about Andre Gower? Anyone remember him from Monster Squad? He was big on the pages of tiger Beat back in the day. And Barret Oliver! From the Cocoon movies, D.A.R.Y.L. and The Secret Garden, he was a dream.

80's and 90's? Okay, let's think here. :ponder: Most of the ones I can think of are still doing fairly (or VERY) well. Like Rick Schroeder, Mario Lopez, Emilio Estevez, Josh Brolin... Okay: Ian Ziering Joey Lawrence Chris Young Chad Allen Ralph Macchio Tommy Puett Any of the Hansons
