(CNN) - She handily lost her bid for the Senate, but Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell says she's fielding plenty of other job offers.
Appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno - the Tea Party-backed candidate whose colorful comments rocketed her to the national stage but ultimately hindered her Senate hopes – said plenty of high-profile opportunities are knocking on her door.
"The offers have been interesting," she told Leno. "Anything from a book deal to a reality show."
But O'Donnell – who beat establishment Republican Rep. Mike Castle in the Delaware Primary and subsequently found little support among national Republicans – said she's more interested in hosting a program that keeps the government accountable.
"I am not necessarily interested in a reality show…I would like to do something like a watchdog-type show," said O'Donnell.
And when it comes to the possibility of mounting a fourth bid for federal office, the Delaware Republican said she isn't sure.
"I don't know if it'd run again. I'd like to keep that option open," she said. "Our country is facing serious issues. Whatever I do, I'd like to continue to advocate for those issues."
"How about being a pundit on Fox News?" Leno asked.
"I did the pundit thing and that's what got me in trouble in the first place," she replied.
A spokesperson for Fox has said the network has no plans to hire O'Donnell.
