British Reality Television Gets Super Trashy

My cousin Ben once spent countless weeks on the road hopping trains and dumpster diving. Little did he know that if he had just done it on a different continent he could have actually gotten paid for the adventure I’d later deem, “the grossest, worst, most revolting idea I’d ever heard in my entire life!”

Most people would agree with my harsh judgment on the “dumper lifestyle”, including the 11 contestants who signed up for a Dumped, a four-part eco-reality show that premiered last week on BBC America. The premise: players (who range from very green to very not) are selected to compete in an eco-adventure in an unknown location. What’s kept secret is that they’d be spending the next three weeks living in a real live dump outside of Croydon in South London and forced to survive off the crap their fellow Brits have thrown away.

The reality program consists of challenges — like creating a shelter using nothing but junk — and forces the contestants to get creative with the piles of trash beneath their sneakers. Now they aren’t totally dependent on the dump! My cousin Ben might scoff at the fact they are given sleeping bags, water bottles, a roll of toilet paper each, hot water, gloves, face masks and plenty of fresh food…but Ben’s hardcore. The reality stars can leave the dump whenever they’d like, but if they don’t complete the three week mission they walk away with zero cash.

This sounds to me like an incredible idea for a reality show and way more educational then watching people scream and fight for love, money or whatever other fake prize that’s worth the price of human dignity. Dumped premiers Sundays at 10 p.m EDT on BBC America. Finally a reality show that’s trashy in a good way.
