-Good idea, but we want adults to watch it, so let’s make it like Survivor, everybody watches Survivor! We did it with Big Brother and got the best ratings ever this summer!
-We can’t call it Survivor Kids though, since people would freak out, if they are being starved and everything…
-Let’s keep’em in the States and make it like a “social experiment”, with waivers and shit and keep it entertaining.
-Sounds pretty good, I’m sure it will do great! Survivor kicks ass, this show will rock!
