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!

Substitute Teacher

Remember how much fun it was to mess with substitute teachers when you were in school? Well, now they went and made a reality TV show about it. Okay, they have not done it yet, which is why I am proposing an idea for one.

An unruly high school class will have twelve different substitute teachers compete in a single elimination style tournament to be their favorite teacher. Each day the class will have two teachers, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. At the end of the day, the students will vote for the teacher they liked the best to move on to the next round. There will be, however, a panel of other teachers and the principals who have the power to veto the decision of the students. If the class votes for a teacher to move on simply because they were given free reign by the sub to do whatever they want, the teacher panel can veto their vote, in which case the other teacher will move on. So the subs do actually have to teach.

The students are allowed to behave as they normally would for the subs. They can also be reprimanded as they normally would. They will have to walk a fine line, but so will the subs. If a sub gets too many students in trouble, they will not be voted to pass the next round. The system actually favors the ill-behaved students here.

The final teacher wins $100,000. It is little compensation for the psychological torture they will have to endure.
