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!

I have been wanting to do something with pirates for a while now, but have not been able to come up with a good concept that was not completely illegal. But today I realized, I have a few other concepts that are pushing the legal boundaries anyway, so why not just step over the line a little? It is just a concept after all, and certainly less immoral than some other concepts I have come up with. Anyway, I shall get on with it.

Pirates will feature three groups of pirates that will loot ships throughout the Caribbean for three months. The winning group is the group with the most booty collected after the three months. Pretty simple, huh? Now on to the rules.

Pirates are not allowed to kill anyone. Any killing will result in the disqualification of the team, which will then be handed over to authorities. They are allowed to use non-lethal weapons like mace or tazers. These are only allowed, however, when absolutely necessary, such as when someone pulls a weapon on them. In addition, they must use the least harmful weapon necessary for the situation. For example, if someone is throwing punches, they must try to subdue them without a weapon, and if that does not work they can use the mace; if someone pulls a knife, they can use the mace, and if that does not work they can use the tazer. Violence, in general, is not encouraged and is only permissible when absolutely necessary. In the event of unnecessary violence, a team may be penalized or disqualified, depending upon the situation. Pirates may carry airsoft guns, which look real, to intimidate those they are looting. The hope with carrying those is that it will intimidate people enough to just do what they are told without resisting.

Pirates can steal whatever valuables they desire, with exception to survival supplies, communication equipment, and fuel. Valuables from different looted ships must be kept separate from each other. The reason for this is that the loot will be returned to its owners after the total value has been appraised. This means nothing is stolen for good, and the pirates must make note of who they are stealing from.

Pirates are allowed to utilize up to three boats, but total team size cannot exceed fifteen.

Pirates may not loot a ship that has already been looted by another team of pirates. Teams will be notified of the names of looted ships.
