The Travel Channel has put out a casting call for a new series called The Streets of America: The Search for America’s Worst Driver. Each week, vehicularly untalented individuals will compete in challenges to decide who’s really the worst behind the wheel — prizes will go to the best drivers, but the real “winner” will be the person who fails the most spectacularly.
As far as I’m concerned, this baby’s in the bag: My friend Tracy is hands-down the worst driver in the world. This is a girl who slaloms her way down Manhattan streets with a Cosmo in one hand and a coffee in the other, grazing mailboxes without ever missing a note of the Mandy Moore acoustic cover playing on her iPod. If she drove like she sang, she’d be Danica Patrick. Instead, she’s like Annie Hall in a Toyota (if you’ve never seen the movie, check the 6:50 mark of this clip).
What about you, PopWatchers? Who would you nominate?
