In today's installment of why I want to move to the UK, they're now working on a reality show where contestants have to live with gorillas. And it isn't like Survivor: Gabon where you see the animals but have no interaction with them and are not even close to them. Eight people get selected and are sent to Uganda to live in the jungle and behave like apes. They've got to eat like them, sleep like them and travel like them. Honestly, I'm surprised no one has done this before. Those wacky Brits, they've got the foresight and they've found a way to combine my love of shows like Meerkat Manor and Planet Earth with my addiction to shows like Big Brother and Real World. It's kind of genius in a way. Just like The Jungle Book, but without Baloo and the catchy tunes.
Don't worry, the animals aren't being harmed. Though it I guarantee there's going to be some shots of the gorillas looking quizzically at the humans trying to adapt to the outdoors. Because you know there is going to be one pretty girl who has never been camping before who doesn't know what to do in the jungle. Supposedly it is to point out the differences, but there are gorilla's that are way smarter than some of the humans I know. So this is going to be good stuff. Not quite as amazing as the zombie Big Brother, but pretty damned close.
