Writer's Block: Reality TV Your Way

If you could make your own reality show, what would it be about and who would be on it?

It would be called Big Bather and it would be about a large man who sits in a bath all day. Celebrity wannabes would go to his highly secure house and look after him as well as have trivial arguments about nothing. At the end of every week one of the housemates and an inch of water is evicted.

I've actually got a good few ideas which are based on puns of popular reality TV shows. Here they are in the form of a list!

  • Prop Idol. in which various propmakers compete in making ever more elaborate props while Simon Cowell tells them that they are rubbish.

  • How about The X Tractor, or should I say: "hoe about The X Tractor". Sorry for that dreadful peice of garden implement humour but sometimes you just have to have a go don't you. Or have a hoe. Or something. Anyway the X Tractor. Various farmers compete in performing acrobatic displays on tractors while Simon Cowell tells them they are rubbish.

  • Britton's Got A Vent. Simon Cowell goes to Fern Britton's house and looks at her ventilation system and says it's rubbish.

  • Sir Vivor. In which a posh man with an OBE, a monacle and a top hat goes around killing people on an island.

  • The Sample Life. In which two X List Celebrities have to live entirely off of free samples for two weeks.

  • Knife Swap. In which two families exchange cutlery and then attempt to cope with the differences.

  • Row Millionaire. In which a bunch of golddiggers are handed high powered rifles and helicopters and told the one that could kill the fleeing millionaire (who is fleeing by rowboat. Hence Row Millionaire) would win his entire fortune.

  • Hell's Kitsch Inn. In which J List celebrities struggle to run a small hotel which is rather kitsch. And someone shouts at them or something.

  • Celebrity Glove Island. In which Q List celebrities all dress up in giant gloves on an island and then act flirtaciously.

  • How Keen Is Your Mouse? In which Gillian McKeith investigates mice from all over the country to see how eager they are.

  • Pimp My Bride. Does what it says on the tin.

  • Bat Cramp. In which a group of delinquent nocturnal flying animals suffer from leg pains and it teaches them not to be so naughty or something.

  • If you'd prefer a reality show with a game show format then how about Doyle or No Doyle? Contestants open boxes until they find Pauline McLynn who gives everyone a cup of tea and Noel Edmonds makes everything sound more dramatic than it is.

Either way I'm bored now since I appear to have been answering this question for two hours. I'm going to go and do something that isn't wasting my life. Or is wasting my life but to a lesser degree.

Thanks :)

I used to watch Big Brother but it got to the point where I realised it was just a waste of my life (and not a hugely entertaining waste of my life) and I just gave up on it.
