  1. Although the series hypocritically and formulaically exploits stereotypes before proving some of them wrong, "Survival of the Richest" is rich in entertainment value in spite of itself.

    Doesn't quite rise to the cheerful, sweetly clever quality level of WB's "Beauty and the Geek."

    Viewers will immediately locate the central flaw. If half of the contestants are so rich, then why go to all this trouble for $200,000?

    Everyone appears far too prepared to play a part, and any self-realization comes far too fast without any real transformation. Either producers picked a bunch of duds to participate or else the editing team was so hopped up on caffeine they cut out the juicy parts.

    Really rich kids, it turns out, make for really annoying reality TV stars.

    I have to say that SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST has been one of the best series next to Top Model. I'm from Belize but saw the series in Sweden and it was very entertaining. Marcus was my favorite, and Hunter was so annoying but kept me laughing. Keep up the good work and keep making more shows like this. Full Review »
