^ I've never heard of it, but that dosen't prove a thing.
on topic: You can't sum up all reality shows in one sentance, you know. Some of the new ones, like "the scholar", or "brat camp" look ok. (I can't wait to see the basterds get their asses kicked.) However, some like "I want to be a Hilton" or this new one where an old rocker goes to college, look awful. It sounds like a B movie. I also hate all face-grinder shows. Every contestant looks better at the start of the show than at the end. One lady on "the swan" looked like her nose was going to FALL OFF.
Somewhat related, I want to do a reality movie. I'd take 5 people and lock them in this old abadoned barn on an island, or maybe my freind's basement that has a toilet, and tell them that they can leave any time they want, but if they do they loose the chance at the prize money. (I'm hoping for $1000, posably from local businesses in exchange for an ad) There is no furniture, no tv, no radios, nothing. They are only alowed to bring in the clothes on their backs. Sanitation is beond basic, I bring over a modest meal 3 times a day so they don't starve. If they want to leave, they can call me on a walkie-talkie. But here's the best part. No one is voted off. There are no contests or goals or chanlages. There are no teams. It's all self imposed. They just sit in a small room together with nothing to look at or talk about or think about or listen to or read or play or watch or see or DO
until finally they all go stark raving mad.
It's all taped. And if the money is enough, they could be there for months. It's going to be called "Cabin Fever".
If you think I'm joking, I'm dead serious. Even about the island.
