Executives at CBS have decided to take a page from recent events and create new episodes of the popular reality TV show Survivor to be set in an airport and “over-booked” airplane. First the contestants will be stranded at a gate terminal in some god forsaken airport with nothing around in the middle of a blizzard for several days. They will have to survive by finding whatever they can scavenge from Vending machines that will eat their change and deliver at random. Finally, they will be allowed to board the plane, but just as they are seated they will be told that “The flight is overbooked and they will need to randomly select passengers to deplane”. It is still unsure if the TV producers will then force other passengers to select who will be “taken off the plane”, or just make it a free for all to see who can stay in their seat while big burly mean looking security guards try to haul them off the plane. The last group standing will receive free airline tickets on United Airlines.
