Kirstin Says: Rachel Crow, Take Simon Cowell's Advice & Do Disney Or Nickelodeon Next

Even though Rachel Crow seems uninterested in pursuing a career on TV, I think she could be the next Raven-Symoné!

Rachel Crow has little interest in being the next Disney or Nickelodeon starlet, but I think she needs to think twice about that decision. I understand she considers herself too mature and doesn’t want to be typecast as a cutesy, little kid. However, she could turn herself into a major franchise — just look at Miley Cyrus!

Rachel’s mentor, Simon Cowell, was actually the first to publicly suggest the 13-year-old powerhouse pursue a career on television, in the beginning of the season — and he expressed those thoughts again to reporters after Rachel’s elimination Dec. 8.

“She is a 360 artist — I am convinced she will end up on Nickolodeon or Disney, I think she has got that tenacity, got that appeal,” he explained.

Unfortunately, Rachel brushed the idea off again when she chatted with HollywoodLife.com after the show, saying, “Yeah, but I don’t know [about Disney or Nickelodeon]. Yeah, it is a little early, but I don’t know…”

Interestingly enough, Disney head honchos are already interested in Rachel, reports TMZ. “Now that she has been eliminated off The X Factor, a general meeting is planned with her and Disney Channel executives soon,” sources said.

Rachel, think about the big picture here. Being a “Disney” girl isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s incredible. You get a show, a music career, movies, dolls — all the franchising in world at your fingertips. Miley, who started Hannah Montana when she was 13, was recently named one of Hollywood’s richest teens. She’s worth $120 million!

Enough about the money — Rachel has the perfect personality for a Disney/Nickelodeon career. She’s precocious, funny AND is a triple threat. There’s no question in my mind she’d be a mega hit.

That said, my co-worker Russ Weakland also pointed out Rachel could pursue acting and take on a villain role, just to prove herself. He thinks if she did that, she’d garner respect from everyone because no one is expecting a part like that from her and afterward, she’d be unstoppable.

Of course, there’s always the option of just pursuing music. But with that personality, I think we’ll be seeing Rachel in more places than just an album cover.

What do YOU think Rachel should do now she’s off The X Factor? Sound off below!
