Your ultimate fantasy Reality TV show...

Maybe I've been smoking too much today, but I thought I'd entertain myself be seeing what amusing fun you all could come up with.

Me, I'd like to get a big pit. And put Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, George Bush, Brian Mulroney, Bill O'Reilly, Osama Bin Laden, a large angry baboon, and a crocodile in it. The last one surviving gets put down humanely.

Your ultimate reality TV?

An all area/access female cyclist training champ of course. (with emphasis on the the changing room) I just love a nice set of female legs

The leaders of two warring factions are put on a remote jungle island. Weapons, ammo, rations and shelter.

Last man standing faces the firing squad. However, alternate endings ARE possible should they opt to rationally settle their differences.

Laundromat: Final Doom!

People doing laundry.
What kind of socks does the cheerleader have?
Is the seminary student really using Spring-Fresh Tide?
Who is that whapped-out ex-celebrity with the gender-neutral cycling shorts?
Who will finish their rinse cycle in time to get the last dryer?

This would be EXACTLY as good as every reality show in existence.

(apologies to our non-US BFers)

You've seen the Geico commercial that spoofs reality shows-- "Tiny House" where a newlywed couple lives in a house way too small. I want that made into a real show. The commercial kills me ...

As good?

I think it would be BETTER than some. Sounds more exciting than Big Brother to me.



I think a GREAT reality show would surely have lots of nudity, sex and killing of politicians!!

Haha yeah superdex, The few times I watched TV and saw that I was always bitten by that thinking, man if one was into "reality tv shows" that would be the ultimate, I'm surprised nobody has caught on the band wagon. Oh btw - Geico will NOT save you hundreds of dollars Instead he wants to charge 3 times :'(

I love the Tiny House commercial. I thought it was going to be a real show when I first saw it... until the punchline that is.

Okay... fantasy reality show. Do I get to be a part of it? If so... take a group of average cyclists, give them all the support, training, food, and gear that they need. They train for two years, and then they enter the UCI pro tour. The show culminates with the team entering the Tour de France.

Start with twenty cyclists, go down to 11. Eleven race, only nine in the Tour, two alternates.

It would be the most expensive show in television history.

OK - I'll repost it here. It's a bit political though, but I think it would be must see.

Put Dick Cheney and Karl Rove on bicycles at the bottom of Pike's Peak. Tell them "go" and have them start riding to the top. 10 minutes later, let a group of 12 G-7 (or is it G-8 now) protesters on bikes take up the chase. Let each group pick the consequences for their victory.

Why on earth do we need reality TV?

We all already have a swirling vortex of crap in our bathrooms.

Yeah, I liked that one as well. And thanks for the idea.

Hmm. Okay, one off the top of my head:

Give 20 people Ford Excursions, cell phones, a bagel, and a coffee and have 10 travel southbound and 10 northbound on a 2 lane road with 6 foot wide lanes.... Go!

The winner will be the person who makes it to the grocery store at the end first and has finished their bagel, finished their coffee without spilling, and wrote down a complete grocery list that someone on the other end of the cell phone recited!

The grand prize is a kick to the groin, a huge ticket for being an ******* (I'm pushing for this to become law), and one of these:

My idea of a good reality show is no reality show at all.
