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!

Ten people will be kidnapped. Sort of.

Ten contestants will be on a bus which they believe will be headed to the location of the reality TV show they thought they signed up for. While on the way there, the bus will be hijacked. Blanks will be fired at the driver, who of course is an actor and will have blood packs on him, and the contestants will be gassed. Once they are gassed, they will be herded into two vans and taken to a warehouse. At the warehouse, individual padded cells will await them. They will be told they have been taken hostage and will not be released until a ransom is paid, and each day the ransom is not paid, one of them will be killed. Almost as an afterthought, the head kidnapper will add that since they were on the way to film a reality TV show, they must vote for who will be killed each day the ransom is not paid. With an evil laugh, the kidnappers will then leave.

Of course nobody is actually going to be killed or physically harmed, other than the gas and maybe a little rough handling. It will be an absolute emotional nightmare for them though. They will be under the full belief that they have been kidnapped and face death if a ransom is not paid. And to top it off, they must decide who to send to slaughter. Once a contestant is removed from the holding room to be "killed," their family and friends will be awaiting them along with $200,000 cash. So really, they do not have to do anything but sit in a cell, for no more than ten days, and they get a big pile of money. Sure, it sounds easy enough. Right.

The cells will be padded so contestants cannot harm themselves. They will be individual cells so contestants cannot rebel. They will be able to communicate with each other, since they must vote to send someone away, but they will not be within arm's reach of each other, or be able to pass objects. They will be fed and cells will contain some form of bathroom facilities; I am not that inhumane.

So if you are a really twisted person who wants to see absolutely pure fear and hopelessness, be sure to watch Kidnapped.
