FANTASY BOB'S CASUAL OBSERVATIONS ON CARLTON, CRICKET, LIFE AND ALL THAT OTHER STUFF
Thursday, 2 December 2010
Fantasy Bob has successfully resisted the claimed attractions of reality TV. However he has come up with a new format that he thinks should be a winner.
Reality is too much for some contestants
The format for 'I'm (Not) a Cricketer Get Me Out of Here' simple: 11 randomly selected Australians are placed together in a hostile environment and have to go through various tests of strength and character - sometimes referred to as bowling, batting and catching - specially designed to humiliate them. The prize - being allowed to stay at home for the Adelaide round.
Fantasy Bob thinks that the idea for this series might well have originated during an English TV team's visit to Australia in 2006-7 but he understands that there is limited interest in the concept in England any more.
