Reality TV Concepts

Looking to kill some time? Then check out these crazy reality TV ideas! Every day I will add a new, probably over the top, concept for a reality TV show; I figure there is no way I can do much worse than what is already on TV. Remember, this all just for fun (unless of course one of my ideas is picked up by a television network, in which case I expect some compensation), so do not be offended by anything. Enjoy!

Who hasn't wanted to take a nice, long vacation and just travel the U.S. to see what there is to see (if your hand is up, put it down and go apply to be on San Quentin). The problem is always the time and money issue. Well, if you have got the time, money should not be a problem. Why? Because, as the name of the show implies, you will be hitchhiking.

Five contestants will compete to be the first to successfully hitchhike across America, stopping at designated checkpoints along the way. The checkpoints will take them from the Northeast (Maine) to the South (Florida), then through the Midwest (Illinois), over to the Northwest (Oregon) to the Southwest (Southern California). The contestants will be timed from one checkpoint to another, with the contestant who has the shortest total time being the winner. Top prize is $250,000.

To keep the contestants from completely starving during the trip, they will be given an allowance of $20 a day, but they can only use the money for food and clothing; it may not be used to pay for a cab, a bus ticket, or for any other means of transportation. They will also be supplied with a rain poncho and a small tent and a warm blanket, in case they have to spend the night outside. At each checkpoint they will be able to spend the night in a hotel and will be provided with dinner and breakfast for free. Once they arrive at the checkpoint, the contestants have until noon the following day before the clock starts for them to be on their way to the next checkpoint. If a contestant shows up after midnight, they have until noon of the following day before the clock starts again.

So, if you are too busy and poor to tour the country yourself, be sure to tune in and watch Hitchhiker. At least you will be able to see what you are missing.
