because reality shows have just been too, you know, *real*

Are you ready for “reality TV” as seen through the eyes of Michael Bay? Well, get ready:

Michael Bay, the director of blockbuster films Transformers and Armageddon, is to bring his high-octane style to television with a new reality TV series called One Way Out.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the show, described as a “game with no rules”, has been called a cross between shows Survivor, The Mole and The Amazing Race.

The show marks Bay’s first foray into unscripted TV and will see contestants compete against each other in extreme conditions in hostile environments. Bay has said that the action-adventure show, produced with company Magical Elves, will “remain true to the filmmaker’s signature style”.

I’m seeing a weekly foray into slo-mo exploding helipcopters while lingerie models battle giant space robots for supremacy.

In all sincerity, I have no doubt that this will be the most popular TV show ever. And certainly the loudest.

This has been your WTF Thought for the Day.
