If you had to appear on a reality show which one would it be?

Surely a reality show is something where an activity that people would do in real life in a naturalistic setting is organized into a structured format for a game or contest, and the participants live in it for a while? If so, it would have to be some kind of farming or smithing show for me.

I quite fancied the show (was it Castaway?) - the one that launched Ben Fogle's career.

The idea of it anyway - not sure the reality would suit..

I'm not sure how well known this is, Mushroom, but the first one of this kind to make it to TV was Expedition Robinson on Swedish TV in the mid 90s. I used to follow it avidly :) en.m.wikipedia.org

A reality show but not a game, does anyone remember a show from the (?) end of the 1970s about a group of people living for a year as if in the stone age? Kind of like Fogle's programme but with fewer clothes.

I seem to recall this being done more recently as well- (late '90s perhaps ?)
My only real memory of it was that at one point the HSE came onto the site due to the living conditions.

I found the anniversary programme about Castaway quite enlightening - esp how the cast saw that Ben was being 'bigged up' by the film crew so that a star would emerge

Got something to say?
