Pretty wild new show...Kid Nation
This Fall CBS will bring us a "ground-breaking" reality experiment called Kid Nation. Think Lord of the Flies, but in western times. A group of kids ages 8 to 15 will be forced to survive in Bonanza City, New Mexico and build their pioneer-style world for 40-days. Each episode will end with a town meeting where the children can decide whether or not they want to stay in Kid Nation. The kids will also award one child a $20,000 prize. CBS promises an amazing prize at the end of the show.

Click below to see the preview, because it's pretty amazing. These kids have to do everything from clean the nasty shit in the bathroom to operate a saloon. They even decide who's going to be "upper class" and shit.

The best part is when the host tells the kid "the $20,000 can buy you a lot of college." What kind of the hell kind of college can it buy? Beauty school college?
