Jose Canseco Follows Tweets about Time Travel and Alien Intervention with Offer to 'Show You Bigfoot and a Real Alien' for $5,000
Following a string of bizarre tweets about time travel and alien intervention, former baseball star Jose Canseco revealed recently via Twitter that he would be offering to show “Bigfoot and a real alien” to those willing to pay for the privilege.
Come spend the day with me and my alien Buddies I'll show you Bigfoot and a real alien call Morgan at 702-374-3735— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 12, 2019
"Spend the weekend with Jose for $5,000 cash. Only five lucky individuals will get a golden ticket. Oompa Loompas ain’t got nothing on Bigfoot. Travel in his custom RV to authentic alien sightings and proven Bigfoot habitats. Camp out in the wild. Tell stories and maybe meet a real Bigfoot. You never know what’s gonna happen with Mr. Canseco. Food included. Only serious inquiries please. I will help you book your flights to Vegas and set itineraries," said Canseco's manager and girlfriend Morgan Strelow in a text message to a reporter with the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Canseco is reportedly asking for 50% of the fee upfront, and the other half upon arrival.
“We are squatcher conservationalists. No harm will be done to any Bigfoots," she added.
According to Strelow, interest in the event is high, and once the five individuals are secured, a date will be set for the excursion. Currently they are “looking at early April.”
Canseco has led a controversial life in the spotlight after leaving baseball, including stints on reality television shows The Surreal Life and Celebrity Apprentice, and a string of celebrity boxing matches—one of which saw Canseco sued for breech of contract after he attempted to substitute his twin brother for himself in the ring.
Most recently, Canseco signed with World Class Revolution Pro Wrestling in July of 2018, although that appeared to be largely related to the company’s expansion into the multimedia market and his involvement has so far been limited to promotional activities.
Canseco’s increasingly bizarre antics have led some to speculate that the former major leaguer is desperate for attention following the fallout from his tell-all book, Juiced, which accused specific players in Major League Baseball of using performance enhancing drugs. The book led to a congressional hearing on the matter and left Canseco all but ostracized from the baseball community.
