Has anyone been watching these?

Where would you have seen yourself in the foodchain?
yeah I've seen a few episodes...loved the way the girls went round in circles for day's , i sure know that feeling.
Question is though... Where do you see yourself having been, had you been one of those chosen to attend? Alpha/Alpha? Or a follower?

Do you think your stored knowledge would have been sufficient to quide and direct the others successfully, in the face of their own self-belief?
I'd probably get fed up with the idiots and wonder off on my own.
you have to bare in mind these people were selected on the basis of making good/watchable tv , they will have been selected for any number of various reason's that will play out in an interesting way for the audience (pathetic welsh hairdresser that folded within 24 hours)pretty obvious really , angry feminist company owner , know it all retiree ....et al you could cut it on your own but why work so hard when you can share the burden...was impressed with the cayman catch and the girl's killing and eating the "pet" piglets
Overall I thought the programme was well made and showed up the real issues that affected the group.

I enjoyed watching the whole series, found it entertaining and think those that stayed to end generally did quite well.

As for where I'd see my self in the food chain, well in that environment, humans would be pretty much top of the food chain, as the islanders demonstrated themselves.

As for where I'd fit in the group..... well that's a bit different and while I wouldn't be a follower, I also wouldn't necessarily place my in the leaders roles either, unless circumstances absolutely dictated that I needed to jump into that role for the good of the group, and no-one else was stepping forward.
I know its only an "entertainment" programme and not to be taken seriously, but having seen previous series of this I don't think I could put up with the "group" for very long, too many moaners and lazy types, I'd get really annoyed with them and probably lose my temper-it has been known!!Tongue
