If you need Pete to judge your shit, just Google around. I found a booking company "specializing in Celebrity Driven Entertainment Marketing," which lists Pete Wentz among their elite celebrity judging bullpen — actually, they list him as "Paul Wentz," but who's paying attention? He's a rare jewel among the agency's musical clientele due to his ostensibly legit rock background; most are American Idol castoffs or ex-teenypop stars, plus shopworn media grotesques like Dave Navarro and Gene Simmons.
I exchanged some calls and emails with the firm's gracious proprietor, but I had no luck getting a ballpark quote for Pete's judging services despite lying outrageously about a dog-based battle of the bands featuring Geddy Lee as a co-judge (this is called investigative journalism).
Two things I did manage to find out: his services aren't cheap, and his booking agent returns calls fast.
