Would You Go On A Reality TV Show To Win A Bunker?
There are some strange reality TV shows with some strange prizes but one new reality show Last Family On Earth is giving away a bunker as the prize.
The surprising thing is that people actually want to win it.
The show Last Family on Earth is a US production which will feature survivalists competing to show how tough and resourceful they are. The winner gets an underground bunker in an undisclosed location.
The people on the show apparently believe in the Mayan prophecy that the world is going to end in December 2012.
NBC Los Angeles writes:
Sharon Levy, executive vice president of original programming at Spike, said the series doesn’t necessarily coincide with the theory that the ancient Mayan civilization predicted the end of the world will arrive in December 2012.
Levy said polls show that many people believe that there will be some catastrophic event like an earthquake or epidemic that threatens civilization, and these are the people who will participate in the show.
“We don’t think there’s anything funny about that,” Levy said. “We think it’s a very interesting segment of the population that is very prepared, is highly intelligent. These are regular people. These are not people that you may think are living in a shelter in the middle of the woods. These could be your friends.
“We’re taking it very seriously,” she said. “We know they’re taking it very seriously, and we think it’s going to be incredibly riveting.”
Not that the producers necessarily believe the world is going to end as they said if it rates there could be a few more seasons in it.
Well if the world is going to finish at the end of this year, maybe we should all start working through our bucket list or unleash a little.
I might drop my policy on not perving at under 25 year old guys. Yes Andy from Masterchef I am talking about you. Also will start spending flagrantly on a hedonistic lifestyle including top end liquor, excessive eating and inappropriate men. Obviously I will continue blogging whilst leading this new and exciting lifestyle as reality TV news never dies.
What would you do if you knew the world was ending in six months?
