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!

Pole to Pole

Yes, I realize there is a Michael Palin series by the same name, but I really could not think of a better one. And yes, I realize this may mirror his series somewhat, but keep in mind, his series was not a competition reality TV show.

Two teams will race against each other from the South Pole to the North Pole. The first to arrive in the North Pole is the winner of $1,000,000 (the other team wins $100,000) They cannot fly, except to get off of Antarctica. From there, the rest must be traveled by land, except where it is absolutely necessary to travel by boat, and they must take the shortest route possible to cross the water. On land, the teams can take any route they want, and use any means of land transportation necessary.

The teams do not necessarily have to travel through South America and North America. If they think it would be quicker to cross through Australia and Asia, they are welcome to try. But remember, that would mean they fly to the closest airstrip from Antarctica in Australia and then they have to cross the rest of the continent by means of land transportation, which may be a trick when going through the untamed outback. Once they crossed though, they would have to island hop until they got to the Asian landmass; they cannot simply take a boat from Australia to the Asian landmass because that is not the shortest distance between landmasses by boat. But who knows, it still may be easier than crossing through South and Central America. That is for the individual teams to decide.

For continent hopping, Jules Verne-esque racing excitement, tune in to Pole to Pole!
