I’m sitting in my office at the 6So financial division a few days ago when this guy walks in who I have never seen this guy before in my life. He is rather big, maybe 6′ 4″ 230 pounds. His left eye looked lazy, he had a bad comb-over, and he smelled heavily of vinegar. Before I had a chance to grab my spiked club(+2) to scare him away, he looks around and says very loudly “Well sodomize me on ice-skates! Are we the only people around here who doesn’t have a reality based TV show? Jesus, I feel like I’m stuck in 1999. Next thing I know Jesse Camp will have a career again!” At this time he looks at me strait in the eye and commands me to have a reality based TV show on his desk by the end of the week. Then he takes what is left of the courtesy mints on my desk, and exits the room.
Now, as I sit there wondering just what in the hell just happened, the seed that the mystery man planted in my head begins to sprout. After a day of vigorous brainstorming (and several packs of kickers), I had my reality based TV show.
Operation Omni is an adventure of five everyday adult human beings who are brought together and placed in a Dodge Omni somewhere in south Nevada. Unlike other reality based shows, the contestants are not voted out of the car. Operation Omni is a true survivor series in that the only way a contestant is removed from the contest is by leaving the Omni under their own volition by making contact with the ground outside the car. The rules are simple, but the contestants must deal with a few key circumstances.
- A two hundred dollar per person budget.
- The Omni is outfitted with a glove box full of Alabama eight tracks. And a barely adequate player.
- The Omni’s heater is stuck in the high setting.
Dealing with these circumstances will be great entertainment as the contestants are not allowed to touch the ground outside of the Omni for any reason, including having to relieve themselves.
In the end, the final contestant who hasn’t exhausted his budget, and has not been murdered by another contestant, will be named victorious and will receive the Omni as a grand prize.
