Michael says fake blog is “brilliant”; Kaysar says he “did get a few laughs out of” TeamKaysar.com

A long, long time ago, someone launched a blog that was allegedly written by Michael, the Big Brother 6 houseguest. Alas, it was not real, but a spoof.

Now that he’s out of the house and out of the control of the producers, Michael has read the blog. And he loved what he saw. “It was brilliant; it was just hilarious,” he told the Orange County Register. “So much of the stuff on there was really accurate. It was obviously written by somebody with skill.”

Michael is also “intrigued by rumors putting him and Kaysar on a future ‘Amazing Race,'” the Register reports. But the paper talked to Kaysar last week, and Kaysar said that, despite his fame, he’s not quite ready to be on a show such as Battle of the Network Reality Stars. “Absolutely not,” he said, instead noting, “My passion is business. My passion in entrepreneurship. Anything is a possibility.”

The paper also asked Kaysar about TeamKaysar.com’s attempts to raise $2 million to give to his alliance. “I did get a few laughs out of it, that’s for sure,” Kaysar said.
