God knows Lindsay Lohan has been struggling for some time to do anything right. There was that unfortunate the-recession-really-is-bad Fornarina ad. Plus her most recent movie project, Labor Pains, going straight to cable. And there’s the apparently crippling boredom that led her to post topless photos of herself on Twitter. But she’s finally stumbled upon a project no one can argue with — not without feeling like a jerk, anyway. She and Ryan Seacrest are both saying on Twitter that they’re working on a TV project together: a reality show that would give a contestant $1 million to turn his or her life around. Seacrest writes, “Met with Lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her… it helps people and gives others a second shot! Still putting it all together.” And Lohan says, “Working on a really great project for television — I am excited! Something meaningful like (reality TV show) Extreme Home Makeover on ABC… :)” TMZ says she’d sit on the judging panel to determine who deserves the second chance — which seems, well, kind-of like her greatest expertise. Maybe a reality show isn’t the best message to send about her career, but if she’s already at low-budget-ad-campaign/TV movie/topless photo level, you can’t argue with some good-deed-doing.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Could this be a good starting-comeback vehicle for Lindsay? Or should she compete for the prize herself?
