TV People Lost On Scottish Mountain
Are they 'tough enough'? Apparently not...
Posted: 29 August 2001
Are they tough enough? 'Pants they are,' was the answer as three
contestants in a new BBC adventure show got lost on 3194-foot Ben
The three were competitors in a new BBC programme 'Are You Tough
Enough?' were attempting to climb the very straightforward mountain
in what were described as 'near perfect conditions' but still managed
to screw up.
According to this
story on Anonova, one 'hitched a lift', one was rescued and one
found her own way down. We're not criticising anyone, least of all
contestants on TV outdoors survival game shows, but a quick poll of
the OUTDOORSmagic staff showed that none of them had ever been
rescued from a very straightforward Scottish mountain while competing
in a TV game show...
Meanwhile, if you still insist on watching normal people making
trouts of themselves in the outdoors, the latest episode of 'The Heat
Is On' - the eight volunteers have a rough time in the Peruvian rain
forest' - is tonight (Wednesday) at 9.00pm on BBC1.
