This book talks a lot about Survivor, the Apprentice, and some race called the Eco-challenge, which I had never even heard of. It does not go into details about the cast of those shows, it goes into detail about how the shows came to be and about all the production hurdles that had to be jumped to get them on TV. It kept me interested the entire time.
Ok, getting back to the Eco-challenge, I did a little research to see what it was all about. An endurance race, sounds cool, I love endurance races. I just competed in one a couple of months ago. It was called the Tough Mudder, and it was billed as the "worlds toughest endurance race" Really? Worlds toughest? Because even though it was hard and pretty challenging, it looks pretty easy compared to the footage I have just watched for the Eco-challenge. All I can say is Mark, please bring back the Eco-challenge. I will start training today to compete in it. And if I cannot get cast for it, at least I will be in really great physical shape as I sit on the couch and watch it on TV.
