The UK reality show "I'm a celebrity... Get me out of here!" (see link) might not be to everyone's liking, but one thing's for sure - it's a great aid to weight-loss.
Contestants can lose something like 2 stones whilst in the jungle (approx. 2 weeks), and I think this is pretty impressive.
a similar facility for non-celebrities, but sans Antandec and TV coverage.
Each 'contestant' is subjected to thorough psychological profiling, and is only grouped with other compatible 'contestants' in order to keep conflict to a minimum.
Meals are earned in the same way as in the show - 'Bush tucker trials'. Thankfully, none of these trials are of the icky insect-eating variety - trials are either mental or physical challenges.
Not only would the 'contestants' leave the jungle slimmer, they would hopefully also learn something about themselves and their decadent, consumerist lifestyles.
I'm a celebrity.... Get me out of here!
The inspiration for this idea [jtp, Nov 27 2007]
||So if it's not on TV and you're not actually competing, isn't this otherwise known as 'spend some time in the outdoors, ill-prepared'? That's widely known to exist, just ask the various rescue services.
||I'm going to give you a bun just for removing Antandec. In fact I will say now, any idea which involves removing Antandec from anywhere is good! [+]
