Remember how when Gina Glocksen finished in the top 10 on "American Idol," how there was much fanfare here with the mayor and a plaque, etc. We wonder, what are the chances of there being a "Jes Ricklef Day" in Naperville to honor the local who won VH1's hit reality show, "Rock of Love?"
Probably nil. "American Idol" is perceived as wholesome family entertainment, which "Rock of Love" showed girls being vulgar, crass and crude in their quest to date Bret Michaels, lead singer of the band Poison. Except for Jes, that is. She came across as sweet and normal -- no doubt that's why she won.
Should Naperville formally recognize its latest reality show star?
