There have been many Survivor match-ups over the years the ones that stand out to me were, Heroes vs. Villains and of course the latest Survivor Nicaragua Young vs. old. What will be next who knows for sure?
If CBS is looking for a few new ideas here are some of the Survivor match-ups that I would guarantee ratings.
Number 1: Fat vs. skinny this would be a match-up that may dispel once and for all the age old myth that being fat makes one a loser. Heavy people need an opportunity to prove they too can cut it and defeat their thin counter parts hands down.
Number 2: Republican’s vs. Democrats would be another good match-up that in my opinion would be worth watching. This may not work though they would have to extend filming one or two seasons unless they use regular people. If they are ex-congress people or senators it could take days and much filibustering before anyone on any team may be voted off.
Number 3: Rich vs. Poor might be another good match-up and would definitely be worth watching. The poor could be made up of simple working class people while the rich could be made up of Wall Street types who are looking to take advantage of the poor team. Mean while the poor team is trying to figure out how to bring the Wall Street team down.
Number 4: Jocks vs. Nerds would be one for the record book. This would once and for all decide which of them is superior. Which one is superior the mind or the superior body which one would be triumphant in this bitter contest from old rivals.
Number 5: Amish vs. English. No I am not referring to the people from England. The Amish refer to anyone who is not Amish as the English as in Harrison’s Fords movie “Witness”. The Amish would out work the English and keep their clothes on, but in the end the English would lie and cheat and probably end up winning the game.
Although none of these are going to be in Survivors future they are fun to think about. For the time being I guess I will be happy watching Survivor Nicaragua.
