I must admit I was intrigued by the first show. But each show after that has left me with a nagging feeling that, like most of these "reality" shows, they got it all backwards.

If these wilderness survival scenarios had a ring of truth to them, wouldn't the point be to keep the people? The more that survive, the better the chance for long-term survival. Wouldn't continually narrowing the field down to only one mean you wouldn't survive? Tribe against tribe or man against the elements, the idea should be to have as many left standing as possible, not to turn on each other and knock your tribal mates off.

If they want to use that definition of survival, put it in a corporate environment.
