To take that one step further, has everyone seen The Running Man
? Arnold Schwarzenegger is put into a reality television game show where he has to fight his way through an obstacle course full of villains trying to kill him. Perhaps we wouldn't need the villains to try to actually kill
the photog contestants, but you could set your riot show up like the Running Man contest, with several photog contestants released into the playing area at once, all trying to get out with a story.
Actually, if you think about it, a photog games festival in the spirit of the lumberjack games wouldn't be that bad an idea. Most of the ideas here have been tongue in cheekc, but we really could hold a yearly competition to be hosted by a different station each year, with athletic competitions inspired by the job itself. They have this kind of thing for lumberjacks, Celts, electrical linemen and probably several other groups, so why not us?
(By the way, I'm not volunteering to organize it.
