The summer brings about the best in everything, especially reality television programming. Unfortunately, many of these shows will ultimately be canceled due to ridiculous premises. Networks can help alleviate the canceling of shows by combining two failing shows. Take for example:
Pirate Kitchen - This show will take on the premise of a pirate themed Hell’s Kitchen with Captain Ramsey as the executive chef. Each week the teams will compete to find treasure chests that contain various kitchen utensils that will aid in completing a dinner service. And yes, the loser from each week WILL walk the plank. No exceptions.
So You Think You Can Invent - Aspiring inventors are given a chest of random items and they have an hour to invent the next greatest thing. It may sound like a dull concept, but have you seen the skit ‘Props’ from Who’s Line is it Anyway? I envision this show will be along those lines. Also, some of you may be thinking an hour is too short, but I ask you: What would MacGyver do?
Fast Cars and Wedding Crashers - Wedding Crashers failed as a reality show due to lame jokes. Fast Cars and Superstars will undoubtedly fail because there is nothing cool about celebrities driving race cars. However, replace lame jokes with stock racing cars and superstars with formal wedding occasions and we have a recipe for success. Just imagine watching a race car rip through a wedding procession while guests scream and run for their lives. Hilarious.
Last Model Standing - I almost didn’t include this one because it is a multi-million (billion?) dollar idea that I should send to studios directly, but I’ve settled for Wild Bluff Media instead. This show will pit some of the hottest models in an all out brawl on the runway. The winning model from each round will progress in a March Madness type bracket. Finally, the championship round will have a twist. I’m thinking they should fight in something fruity that jiggles. Can you smell the success?
I’m telling you all right now that it is only a matter of time before we see two reality shows combine into one. I just hope that it occurs in the Fall to help fill the void in my heart from the absence of Lost.
