As the American Idol Season Begins to Close, Contestant Popularity and Keepsakes Heat Up
American Idol contestant and front-runner Adam Lambert got a chance to visit his hometown and high school in San Diego, CA last Friday. Over 7,000 screaming fans turned up at Mount Carmel High School to greet him, including the mayor, radio personalities, cheerleaders, television cameramen and photographers. Also included in the mayham was a sea of cell phones with texting, video and photography capabilities. One lucky, local resident and member (known as “backdraft”) of social network, greedypeople.com was able to get 5 close-up shots and has decided to offer them for sale on the site.
GreedyPeople.com offers a humorous and light-hearted way for average Joes and Janes to make extra cash or outsource unusual needs. From dropping off dry cleaning to peeling grapes in a panda suit (or selling unusual things), GreedyPeople.com provides members with the ability to negotiate cash deals with each other. The site owners recently signed a television production development deal to expand the concept into a reality/game-show and could possibly be on a major network as early as fall of this year.
The site is the brainchild of Chick Ciccarelli, CEO of MediaBuys LLC and managing agency for GreedyPeople.com. “In any economy, there are people who have money and people who need money. This is especially true in a recession. GreedyPeople.com simply brings those people together and allows them to have a little fun while also overcoming difficult circumstances,” says Ciccarelli.
Ads for “Offers Wanted” typically run for 10 days, so the Lambert photos will have a limited time-frame for accepting offers.
