Survivor

a REAL survivor TV show
  (+2, -5)
(+2, -5)
  [vote for,
against]

OK, now im positive almost everyone out there has seen one of these 'Survivor' series of TV programmes where they put a bunch of people on an island and then they have to survive, do various challenges and vote each other off etc..

What I propose is a slight twist on this idea:

1) the Public vote for whoever they want to go on the show

2) the selected people are then made to sign a disclaimer

3) the selected people are then taken to an island, somewhere nice with palm trees etc.

4) the winner (and here's the thing) has to be the last actual survivor on the island.

5) the winner gets 10 million, plus they get to keep the island.

Wouldn't that make interesting TV?

       Sounds like a good plan. People can live for quite some time without food and water so you'd have to add some traps and sharp objects to spice things up a little. They'd have to use their first aid skills to tend to wounds and the dead could be prepared and eaten. Sounds sick I know but TV is just like that these days so live with it...

       Heh I wasn't intending them to die of starvation or thirst more like chasing each other around with sharpened sticks fashioned from the local shrubbery. Hell could even have challenges (dangerous ones of course) where the winner gets a weapon, or some armor :)

       Sounds interesting... knifes and things could be hidden throughout various places on the island. There could also be some competitions where the TV network would give the winner a prize of eg. a gun with one bullet and you'd have to decide who poses the most of a threat to you and shoot them. I'd watch it. Maybe they could also include some Pirana infested waters??

       Pirhanas? defintely.

       if the cameras were in cardboard boxes, you could have Schrödinger's Survivor.

       If the cameras were in boxes, you could stomp them to bits without hurting your feet.
