Pilbara-based reality TV should be a thing
Australia’s TV networks are busy spruiking their reality TV shows for 2018 and it’s got us thinking: what if these big-ticket shows had a more Pilbara flavour?
We could have Married At First Site, where couples are married off after meeting each other on their first swing at a new mine.
Or perhaps My Fishing Rules, where instead of cooking for a crowd, contestants are tasked with rigging up their best tackle combo while the rest of the contestants one-up each other’s fishing tales around a pub table.
The front-runner for us would have to be Pilbara Eye for the City Guy. In this show, five true blue North Westerner’s would give a latte-sipping concrete cowboy a country makeover, replacing business attire with thongs and flannos, and European SUV’s with a V8 LandCruiser and a boat.
Whatever it is, we strongly believe TV stations should take note of the Pilbara’s reality TV potential.
