Thread: Survival Show Casting

  1. #1

    Default Survival Show Casting

    The safe-space generation gets their own show, what could go wrong?

    We are back at it, casting the second season of a survival show for young people. If you have a moment, can you share this blurb with your club members?

    CASTING: Survival enthusiasts age 18 24: Do you have what it takes to survive 6 weeks in the middle of nowhere for a cash prize? Are you an all-purpose survival expert, and/or do you have a specialized skill such as tri-athlete experience, plant expertise, primitive shelter building or fire making, nursing, EMT skills, rock climbing, spear-fishing, or trapping, that would contribute to a group of diverse young people working together to survive?

    A major cable network is seeking extroverted survivalists to apply now for the survival adventure of a lifetime with cash prize. We are looking for energetic, charismatic individuals with opinions as strong as their survival skills and the confidence to back it up. Diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation and economic situations strongly welcomed and encouraged.

    To apply, please email us at eileen@metalflowersmedia.com with your name, age, a photo and a short paragraph detailing your personality and survival experiences.


    Thank you so much for helping me get the word out.

    Warm regards,
    Eileen

    ...charismatic individuals with opinions as strong as their survival skills and the confidence to back it up.
    ^ Seems like a euphemism...I already see the possibility that they're at least as interested in obnoxious drama and in-fighting for a good show as anything else.


    Had to look up 'safe space generation' though.

    It ain't that difficult to interpret. I thought the same thing when I read that paragraph; drama, confrontation, argument, back biting and name calling.

    Just more of the same crap that is out there now.

    Just learn the euphemisms. And the pattern, history, and motivation of these things. And what's read between the lines. Key word, and pivotal concept - euphemism. Of course, most participants won't realize this. They're being manipulated already...baited. The right lure for the right folks, to make a right dramatic show. Tis even easier to do with young folks, which is their target.

    I don't know. Put any buncha young people in the woods in "survival" mode with cameras on them and you will get drama.

    It seems that they would get better ratings if they just asked for the young folks measurements, then they could really rev up the youthful audience when they took off their clothes. Sex has always and shall always sell on TV. Many years ago we called it T&A, but the current market is moving away from educational survival. How many folks want to see Les, Cody & Dave naked? (NONE) Now you toss in that 36-26-36 18-24 year old female, put her alongside a recruiting poster 18-24 year old male, take all thier clothes off and you got a hit show regardless if they survive or not. JMHO.
