'Runnin' Wild...From Ted Nugent' already my new favorite reality show (title)


Tednugent_lTed Nugent’s latest reality project, Runnin’ Wild…From Ted Nugent, will premiere on CMT this August. According to the press release: “In each one-hour episode…Nugent instructs three competitors on one of what he calls the ‘Big Five of Survival,’ which include psychology of Survival, Shelter, Water, Fire, and Food, and will then design an obstacle centered on that skill. The lessons learned in each episode will be put to the test in the ‘big hunt,’ as the competitors try to survive on their own, all while Nugent and Rocco [his 18-year-old son], attempt to hunt them down. In this twist on the competition/elimination format, Nugent will determine the outcome himself at the end of each episode.”

There are many things that I love about this. Of course, the title. Hysterical. But also the fact that there is no mention of a prize because, presumably, getting to tell the story of how you were hunted by Ted Nugent – a member of the National Bowhunters Hall of Fame and the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association – is gift enough. (Also, the “big hunt,” for some reason, made me think of “the game” in the movie Gymkata. Please let there be a random pommel horse in the woods. Please.)
