Reality TV

Reality TV shows, it seems, are still all the rage. Those based around finding new pop stars are still alive and kicking despite the mortal blow that was Popstars: The Rivals last year. 2003 has seen the format move into the world of sport with The Games on Channel 4 last month and the new BBC1 show Born To Win.

All of which beg the question "What's next?". Stand-up comedy? Kid's TV presenting? Where will it all end, if indeed it will at all?

So, my question to you is this: If you could commission a Fame Academy-type show, what career area would it cover? What would you call it? What would the prize at the end be? How would the contestants be kicked out? The wackier the better as far as I'm concerned.
