Coming to an Idiot Box near You

A new reality TV show in which half the ‘stars’ are gorillas could replace Big Brother as a small screen fly-on-the-wall favorite.

Reality television is now a well-worn format, but program makers Silverback argue that their show – The Missing Link – is “not just another social experiment”.

They are preparing to fly eight participants out to Uganda where they will set up camp deep in the African rainforest and meet their eight ape equivalents.

The Missing Link participants will see the tables turned as they are challenged to learn from the apes by living just like them. As well as eating, sleeping and interacting as the gorillas do, whenever the creatures move to a new nesting place, the human group will have to follow …

 

Is it just me or is anyone else offended on behalf of the gorillas?

  1. isnt that harassing the poor animals? how long will their habitat be invaded for the pleasure of cheap-thrills-seeking-weirdos?

  2. now that is an idea…BBA3 has lost its spark.

    by the by, there was a movie shot in uganda with the gorillas in the 90s, right?

  3. hahaha ‘A new reality TV show in which half the ’stars’ are gorillas could replace Big Brother as a small screen fly-on-the-wall favorite.’ that first line got me yelling with laughter…gorrilas?

  4. am so not offended on belhalf of gorillas am just astounded at how far humans go in a need to create more reality shows

  5. hmmm… that is kind of what is done in order to habituate the gorillas ie to make them get used to human presence so that they can be viewed every day…

    with all the people and equipment that will be needed for that, they are so going to mess up with the eco system… not good, not good at all.

  6. Men get sillier and sillier everyday day. Now we are mistreating the gorillas? Ughhh!

  7. Lol…I simply cannot believe this…..
