13 British castaways have arrived on their “shipwrecked” island in New Zealand and begun the long 12 week rush to build shelter, gather food, and start surviving. The BBC Reality tv show this time around includes a lap dancer, a young conservative, a former drug addict, and a professional psychic.
This episode is the newest adventure of a popular reality tv series that started off with scandal as contestants spent a full year on an island in the Hebrides. This New Zealand edition is not without its own scandals already, as Government run conservation land is being “sold” to the British TV network for the purposes of filming and regular land-users, including walkers, daytrippers, fisherfolk, and locals have been told they will not have access to the area of the island being used as the set.
Apparently after 8 weeks a special contest will be run where a viewer will be able to win the opportunity to join the castaways on the island partway through their adventure.
