So here’s my bizarre dream from last night. I was part of a hypothetical season of The Real World which took place in a very conservative college town in Georgia. (A state which I’ve never visited.) The catch was that the house would be populated by crazy liberal smokers/drinkers/sex fiends and MTV would get to film their interaction with the Bible thumper locals. But on the first show, in a bit of Road Rules/Fear Factor stuntsmanship, the entire house is required to strip and sit in a large bathtub for three days. “It has a built-in sleeping area,” we’re told. After this it gets hazy, but needless to say it’s very cold and very wet.
Here’s another million-dollar idea: The Fear Factor Cookbook.
