They ought to combine it with the show Bachelor. Have 20 or so bimbos climb Everest and the first one there has a shot at getting proposed to by the goof sitting on top of the mountain.

"The winner of the contest gets $250,000. "
Losers get a t-shirt: "I tried to climb Mt Everst for $250 grand, but all I got was frostbite and an amputated leg."

It's only a matter of time before someone actually dies on one of these reality shows. Then there will be the whole media circus about "Reality Shows, Have The Gone Too Far?" shiat. People will start comparing us to the last days of the Roman Empire, where the masses where distracted by brutal entertainment while the Empire crumbled around them. Then Canadians will say that the Roman Empire didn't really die in the 400s, it simple moved to Constantinople. Of course they're fooling themselves about pretending not to be the modern Constantinople. They are. It's so obvious.

"...equally divided AMONG men and women..."


Yer frenly farkly grammar nazi thinks you can't divide AMONG two things, only three or more.

This sounds like a terrible idea. People die on Everest all the time and they have to leave the bodies up there for all eternity. It's just too dangerous to try and recover the corpses.

Then again, Celebrity Death Climb could turn out to be a real ratings grabber...

/calls NBC

Oh, I agree Impaler.

Celeb death climb would be cool.

Richard Simmons, Micheal Jackson, the Mustard Man and others

Another great show idea would be The Intern.

Bill Clinton locked in a room with 10 babes and his wife. Who will win? Hillary or his pants????

They go up and they don't go down.

Televised Dariwn awards? I'm all for it!

I hope none of these fitness nuts stays healthy enough to make it to camp 2. Everest is a biatch of a mountain to climb, even for seasoned, experienced, and trained Alpine climbers. Being "in shape" does not make one a mountain climber, nor does it prepare you for the rigors of isolation, boredom, and the constant threat of a sudden and painful death.

I remember when I first heard about this and I thought about how farking retarded it is. I know there's some statistic about how many people die while trying to climb Everest. I also figured that if it came down to it and someone was going to die of hypothermia or something, they'd be taken off the mountain in an instant. Of course they could die in an avalanche or something, so this show is the stupidest idea ever.

I'm rooting for the old fart.
2002-10-24 04:31:07 AM  
This is not going to end well.

It seems like very soon we will be watching the someone's untimely demise on television in the living room with the kids.

Seriously, what the fark?
