On NBC’s new show-which is a remake of a BBC show-celebrities go on a quest to research their family tree and find out “who the really are”. Yeah, blah blah blah. Famous people doing stupid shit. I got it.
My favorite part of this show is the idea that they meet ordinary people (Like you and me!!!) to whom they’re distantly related. Here’s how I think those conversations will probably go…
Famous Person: Hey, we’re related!
Ordinary Person: Really? That’s awesome! I’ve seen you on TV!
Famous Person: I know. I’m really famous. Crazy, huh?
Ordinary Person: Totally. Can I borrow five bucks?
