UK’s Channel Five plans show featuring past reality TV contestants.
The UK’s Channel Five is planning to air Back to Reality, a show that will feature contestants from past reality TV shows, including Pop Idol, Big Brother, Survivor and I’m a Celebrity…. The network calls the show “the last word in reality TV,” and Ananova reports its producer says it “is intended to be a fun show and not about deprivation.” Also, the show “will be sold to the US if it proves a hit.”
