TV writers and executives brainstormed.
"Hey, gang, let's put on a show! . . .
"We need something new and fresh and dynamic . . .
"Let's take a diverse group of people, 'real' people . . .
"Let's put them in a controlled environment for a fixed amount of time, and motivate them with money . . .
"Throw in elements of desire and temptation and suspense . . .
"Hey! Let's put them in a haunted house . . . wait . . . no . . .
"On a boat at sea . . .
"On a polar ice cap . . .
"Wait! Let's put them on a tropical island. Yeah, THAT'S the ticket. The Skin Factor should help to send the ratings through the roof!
"However, no ads or sponsorship for female birth control products or condoms will be acceptable."
Thus it began.
Only the beginning? . . .
It's the future of reality programming, folks. Be sure to subscribe to the TV Guide (*I* certainly do. No snobbism here!) and set aside some viewing time.
