Soft roll-out: Fall Reality Show Challenges?
First out of the shoot is NBC’s reality show “Stars Earn Stripes“. (War and combat has never looked so excitingly beautiful!)
What’s on next?
Pull up a chair and turn on the TV.
Stay tuned for these reality show hits with smash potential.
Being test marketed now!
“You’re It. I quit!”
Play tag on a grand scale!
Will the contestant be able to scale a fence, walk across the airport runway at JFK, and get through the 100 million dollar state of the art security systems!
This 31-year-old guy did it! Anyone else up to the challenge?
Bonus points for any participant able to get to the Delta counter inside the terminal wearing a brightly colored life jacket. Click for details if adventurous.
Next up: “Super-sized Hide and Seek!”
It’s not the Love Boat!
But get ready to use those techie skills underwater.
James Bond wannabes encouraged to apply. Swimming skills encouraged. The claustrophobic need not apply.
Skipper an 8-12 ton submarine along US coastal waters totally evading detection! (Torpedoes optional.)
Bonus points added for a souvenir picked up in Galveston or New Orleans. Click for details.
Rumor circulated this sighting was actually a rehearsal for a holiday special of magic acts for an undisclosed network. (One explanation for something so big being so invisible. Something like that would need practice.)
Don’t worry about the National Guard planes scrambling to intercept. It was decided those were totally unnecessary to protect the port, ship channel, and the one of the largest petrochemical complexes in the U.S. No worries!
Want a challenge that keeps your feet on the ground? “Ditch the Drones”.
Everyone loves those wacky remote-controlled aircraft. Here’s a chance for young and old to use those fine motor skills and tinkering abilities.
Just spot one of the drones flying and hack away. Show your style as you make them do your bidding! Extra points for loop-the-loops or buzzing the house of those with opposing political views!
Tutoring available from respectable university groups.
Not the preppie type but need tutoring? Perhaps ask the drug cartels. They are pretty aggressive about using technology to avoid detection. Probably won’t ask much in return…maybe just carry one little package. Learner beware!

A driven personality? “Grab. Load. Run!” (No, not guns. Those aren’t a game)
Simply an update of the hippie era fad of cramming people into a VW bug. This new version starts with the thrill of carjacking a white 150 pickup truck. (Must be that specific color and vehicle to blend in.)
After meeting an assigned coyote at a previously agreed upon spot, the object is to stack as many people as possible in the truck bed, cover with a tarp, then put the pedal to the metal and get the human cargo to a Houston safe house in record time.
Points will be deducted if involved in wreck. But bonus points will be given if the record of 23 people in one truck is surpassed.
Drivers who abandon their truck and load will not be allowed to start over.

The super-charged “Wack-a-mole” has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, one 13-year-old participant misunderstood and thought it was “Wack-a-Mom”.
(So easy to confuse the two.)
Took a hammer to his mother.
Don’t worry. He’s Ok. They found him hiding under the bed.
But it’s back to the network drawing board for “Wacked” until appropriate viewer guidance warnings are created.
Just when you thought reality shows had done it all, these imaginative Adventure Challenges really deliver!
Pull up a chair and get ready for the fall reality show premiers.
Now where’s that remote?
