Outrageous Celebrity Look-Alike Behavior: Caught on Tape

I saw a couple of previews for this, but the only thing that I can remember is a Tiger Woods lookalike freaking out on the golf course about something. Of course, this airs on Fox (like you had to ask?)

Anyway, I wonder if Fox could get in trouble for intentionally making these people out to be celebrities, and then having them act out. Seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen to me, but maybe since they are all revealed to be imposters in the end, it makes some kind of difference.

The one with Madonna and Janet Jackson look-alikes where they were in a resturaunt and Janet look alike was talking to Madonna look alike about how Madonna slept her way to the top was pretty good.

I don't know how people are actually fooled by this. These look-alikes may resemble the celebrity, but I would not be fooled by them. Heck, the two women fighting in the restaurant, I didn't even know what celebrities they were supposed to be.

I remember a few years ago Regis and Kathy Lee had Bill and Hilary Clinton look-alikes walk down the street or something...

I would be so angry if somebody pretended to be me and act like an ass. I think it is legal, though. It's not like it's slander or libel, and I suppose it might even be protected from lawsuits because it's sort of a parody. I dunno, but it's amazing how much disgusting programming FOX can churn out during summer. With "Paradise Hotel" and "Anything for Love", they have quite a lineup for me to ignore.

Unlike the two you mentioned I am actually going to watch this. It looks funny.
And I'm bored.

If I were in the audience my first question would have been, "So Mike, where is the tatoo that covered half your face?"

But, it was funny in parts. And people want so much to be near "stars" that they would overlook nagging doubts about their true identity.
