Or a not-all-that-realistic, made-for-cable facsimile thereof? The, er, creative types at Pilgrim Studios are holding a digital cattle call for aspiring prepper families who want to be famous…or as famous as you can get on an obscure cable show these days. “Nuclear war, terrorism, pole shifting, killer comets and tsunamis all have the potential to create national and worldwide disaster. Some even think the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of the world on December 21, 2012. If you think you have the skills and determination to be one of the last people on earth — and to rebuild the earth with a community of true survivors — then SPIKE TV wants you to compete on their new show ‘Last Family on Earth.'” So it’s “Survivor” for the survivor set . . .
Sure, it’d be nice if you can use a gun well enough to feed yourself or fashion a working generator out of switchgrass and duct tape. But your application’s odds of acceptance increase on a nearly one-to-one basis with the number of dollars your wife’s spent on surgical enhancements. And if your teenage daughter looks good in tank tops and cutoffs, your intrepid band is automatically moved to the final group for consideration.
But the best part is the prize that goes to the winning family after everyone else has been voted off the post-apocalyptic island. They won’t be stuck foraging for grubs or standing in line for their soylent green ration when the S really does HTF.
On this exciting new show, you will compete in a series of thrilling challenges for a chance to win a prized spot in a state-of-the-art, community underground shelter for you AND your immediate family in case a worldwide emergency ever strikes. Vivos Shelters will give the winner ownership shares in one of their Luxury Shelters for up to 6 immediate family members.
Check out their promo video. Screw the clean water, plush accommodations and abundant food supply, the lighted cupholders in the video theater are all we need to get our application together and sent in.
