Mark Burnett Brings 'Pirates' to Reality TV
Thursday, May 31, 2007 - reddit
Oh, how I loathe reality shows. Mindless, boring, explotative jerk fests is what they are. Mark Burnett (Survivor) is undoubtedly one of the masters of bringing this junk to television, and as most reality shows do, this one sounds like something that was dredged from the bottom of sewer.
“Pirate Master” features 16 Americans out of their element, 33 days in a tropical setting, weekly eliminations and a million-dollar prize purse.
Instead of a deserted beach, the contestants live aboard a 179-foot pirate ship as they use clues to find real gold worth real money. The “pirate master,” or last contestant standing, gets the grand booty of $500,000.
* Nine of the 16 prospective pirate masters are in their twenties;
* Five are in their thirties;
* The remaining two are in their forties.
* Two are bartenders.
* One is a male stripper/scientist. (Ed. Note: wtf?!))
* Eight are from California.
AICN has the scoop on the cast, which apparently includes an about-to-be-fired Deputy District Attorney from Nevada.
