buy a piece of reality TV history–on eBay.
You can buy nearly anything on eBay, and reality TV memorabilia is no exception. Jeff Hidek of The Comic Reader writes:

Do you watch Survivor? Do you like Jenna? Do you want her car? It’s up for auction.

You never know what will be up for auction on eBay these days, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that hopeful sellers are trying to profit by the recent reality TV craze. A Navy Seals Change of Command program signed by Survivor‘s Rudy will cost you at least $20 on eBay. Also available is an autographed copy of Rudy’s local newspaper’s “Rudy Watch” column (the bidding is up to $16.50).

Miss the Survivor cast on the cover of TV Guide? Clippings, magazines, and newspapers are all up for auction as well. Perhaps the most industrious are those entrepreneurs peddling Web sites. Survivor2online.com will only cost you $5,000 at auction, and Big-Brother.ws and bigbrotherfanclub.com are also available.

I would advise against buying from the two people selling VHS recordings of past Survivor episodes–it’s illegal. But if you like Making the Band, you have a few chances to win an advance CD copy of O-Town’s first recording.

As for the convertible Sidekick that allegedly belonged to Jenna, it’ll only cost you $3,000, assuming no one outbids you.
