Got a good idea for a TV show?

A billionaire wants to hear from you.  Seriously:
One of the fun things at HDNet is listening to or reading pitch ideas for new shows. One of the most irritating and time wasting jobs at HDNet is listening to or reading pitch ideas for new shows.

99pct of the time the idea is a derivative of something that is already being done, or something so obvious its an insult that they are pitching it. I dont need to be pitched another cooking, poker, pimp my whatever, American Idol knockoff, nor do I want to hear another "compete for a Mavs roster spot" or "business plan competition idea".

What I would like to read are original show ideas. So post them if you got them.

I have a idea where you take two normal people off the street and let them pick people who volunteered to form a 4 person random team. so there are 2 teams and they go to separate locations where they both have a vehicle and a bunch of living essentials are. there are more essentials then they can fit into the vehicle so they have to pick and chose wisely. Then the go to 2 different locations, but they are the same. and then the game happens, which team will last the longest without giving up. and you could always find things to throw into the mix to make things more exciting.
