I hate reality shows. So much. But when a reality competition’s grand prize is a trip to space?
NBC announced today they’ll be teaming up with reality show producer Mark Burnett to create a competition that ends with one winner taking a trip to space aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo rocket plane. Although this is an extremely exciting announcement, it’s also an ambitious one, as details of the series have yet to be completely carved out.
No matter when it happens, it seems the future has arrived. No longer are we competing for giant clocks or piles of money. It’s SPACE!
A “Space Race” show would set the bar pretty high for reality competitions & help expand the audience currently tuning into these types of shows. I definitely see potential.
