New Reality Show Idea July 12, 2005
This is brilliant. It's called "Lies, Deceit, Cheats and Greed". Oh wait, that's every reality show out there where the ultimate goal is to be the last one standing (Survivor Style) and winning a huge sum of money. And Americans are enthralled. Since Survivor there's been a huge number of these. One of the most recent ones is Hell's Kitchen. The thing is, it reinforces a quote I heard.
"Behind every great fortune there is a crime." - Honore de Balzac
Meaning no one gets rich without doing something illegal or immoral. That's probably why I'll never be rich :) I'd rather watch something where everyone isn't fighting for a reward, like Surreal World, if I watch anything at all.
But anyway, that's enough posts about television to last me a few years.
