Jon Gosselin -- Overpay for Play

10/21/2009 1:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin UPDATE: The MJ Show just posted the email exchange they had with Gosselin's rep. Click here to read it.

Jon Gosselin
sincerely believes his time and energy is worth somewhere around $12,000-per hour -- because that's how much he's demanding to appear on a Florida radio show.

TMZ spoke with the host of Tampa's MJ Morning Show who told us he contacted Gosselin's rep in the hopes of booking the reality star to guest co-host the show for one morning.

The radio show offered two first class round trip plane tickets, limo service and a "first class" hotel room -- but that wasn't enough to seal the deal.

Gosselin's rep requested an "appearance fee ... in the 10-12K range."

Team Gosselin justified the amount by saying, "[Jon's] name and appearance on your show will instantly draw press ... and will be a high point for the show." The rep also describes Gosselin as "quite funny, sharp witted and interesting."

The radio host tells us he "fell out of his chair" when he read the demand. Looks like Jon will have to go back to "Entertainment Something" to lock down that kind of money.

Stick a fork in Jon ....he's done! I wish Jon could keep his mouth shut. He doesn't need to speak to the media again. As much as Jon is wearing on my last nerve....I still hate Kate. He still is not as bad as her or as mean as her. The last time I saw Kate on tv, she looked like she was on some goood medicine. It's about time!

WTF? If Jon Gosselin would have appeared on my radio show,(no I dont have one.)this would have been my offer.
A first class ticket on an airplane with live chickens running up and down the isle. Piloted by a man who dresses up in womens clothes and keeps homeing pigeons.
A chaufer driven Ford Pinto.(Dude has to pay for his own gas.)
One night at the "Bates Motel."(yeah with "room service.")
And $13.23 in cash. Take it or leave it Jon boy,ya dumbass.
As for him being "interesting?" I think not.
Witty? Again,how is that possible? The man is the ultimate jackass.
Bottom line, the man is crazier that a road lizard.

The public is just the meanest dumbest foulest cruelest things. He has every right to charge for his time......and he should. He is the hottest selling item. Nobody minds when Kate sells her time.... wake up America, why are you not giving this guy a break?

JON THINKS HE'S THE CAT'S MEOW. THINK AGAIN, JON. I GUESS YOU ARE DESPERATELY TRYING TO DRUM UP THE MONEY YOU HAVE TO REPAY TO THE ACCOUNT. I HAVE AN IDEA. BORROW IT FROM YOUR GIRLFRIEND. YOU CUT OFF YOUR NOSE TO SPITE YOUR FACE. TALK ABOUT KATE. YOU ARE THE ONE MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELF. HOPE THE RADIO STATION DOESN'T ANTE UP. YOU'RE NOT WORTH IT.

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

Do like we have done on ROL, don't even comment on any threads that have anything to do with Jon on them. At ROL they are commenting and staying on only the Kate posts. We don't support what he is doing to his kids and the lying, cheating, stealing, to where he now is even badmouthing his one daughter. It is one thing for him to be hating Kate (typical in a divorce, but not typical to go to the media to spew it), but it is sad when he has to talk about his daughter to the media. I hate how his hatred is consuming him and how he does not think how his words or actions are impacting his family.

Anyway, hope those who support Kate, boycott any Jon Gosselin threads on TMZ. If there are no comments or interest in the jerkwad, no one will want to pay him for photo ops anymore for him to sell his children and his children's privacy and family affairs, to just make money because he is too lazy to get a job to support his family and peddle down the spending addiction he and his girlfriend InHailey have!

Um that can't be Jon Gosselin. Jon Gosselin seems borning, not so smart, and annoying.

He is asking for that money to put in the bank account before he goes to jail.... I say let him go to Jail.
