MUMBAI: US media conglomerate Viacom's cable network Spike
TV has announced a new competition reality show, 'Last Family
on Earth'. Families vie for a spot in an underground state-of-the-art
Vivos bunker that is fortified to withstand nearly any end-of-days
by Pilgrim Studios, the six-episodic one-hour series will
premiere on Spike TV later this year, with the finale airing
just in time for the family to move into their bunker, built
by Vivos, the leader in this type of structure construction,
and await the world's potential cataclysmic demise on December
21, as predicted by the Mayan calendar.
The families chosen to participate come from a wide variety
of backgrounds and are among the 15 per cent of the world's
population, according to a recent Reuters poll, who believe
the end of civilization is near.
competition will showcase survival techniques and provide
key information that like-minded viewers may also use in preparation
for doomsday. In addition to endurance and physical skills,
challenges will test the contestants' leadership abilities,
integrity and character. A panel of three survivalist-expert
judges, along with viewer input via social media, will help
determine which family is eliminated each week.
Family On Earth' will not only focus on the Mayan interpretation
of the Apocalypse; the show will help prime contestants for
a wide range of annihilation scenarios, including a pandemic,
global government or economic collapse, nuclear war, reactor
meltdowns, solar flares, massive asteroids, lethal climactic
change, a pole shift, calamitous earthquakes, and even widespread
reserved spot in an impervious Vivos underground bunker, the
show's grand prize, was conceived and developed by Robert
Keith Vicino, CEO and Founder of The Vivos Group, whose goal
is to provide a long-term shelter for 1 in every 1 million
people on Earth to whatever lies ahead in 2012... or beyond.
