In Surviving Paradise, the contestants are made to compete if they want to live in luxury. If they fail, they'll have to live in the wilderness and survive on just rice and beans. The path to the luxurious villa goes through the voting that's done at each of each episode.
In the first episode itself, the competition was kicked in. Alliances have to be made, and then, through a reliable one, you can claim the villa. Things seem easy, but just as easily promises are made, deceits also come. The third episode was a bummer, and I could see that things started getting intense. It's either you play each other or the game will play you.
When the contestants were introduced, it was pretty clear that they didn't know what the game was about. All of them were enjoying the amenities provided by the villa still, it was hard to believe that they didn't know what they signed up for in their contract.
I am pretty sure that the audience will have already chosen their favorites before they arrive in the middle of the show. I felt pity for Taylor and Shea and you'll know the reason once you watch the show. Despite sacrificing their own interest, their act was seen as one of the vote-gaining ones.
I think that the makers tried to make this reality show interesting by introducing a competition for luxurious living. The whole concept of outsiders and insiders was new and it brought good entertainment for the audience. I was never able to guess what was coming next as the things were never repeated. However, if you closely look at the contestants, it becomes very easy to guess what their next move is going to be about.
Surviving Paradise is able to make the show survive by introducing a new twist now and then. The makers knew very well how to trick the players and the audience. Just when we think that we've grasped the game we'll, it plays us. The show is centered around the concept of survival of the best. From the beginning itself, we see the contestants with leadership qualities emerge from the crowd.
The reality series has a total of nine episodes. As someone who doesn't like watching this genre, I'd say that the reality series did a good job of holding my attention. There's always a curiosity about what's going to happen next, and I was waiting for the big fight to break. From the beginning of the first episode itself, a lot of tension was building, and this being a reality show, I knew that the drama would be worth it.
Tabitha and Lellies came out as the big fish, but Linda always attracted my attention as she spoke about morals in a game that was about deceit. In all, this was an okayish reality show. If you're a fan of this genre, then it might be the one for you. And, for the people who're a sucker for reality shows, you'd probably like the initial episodes and then lose interest.
