A tropical island, six women, five men, pretty much the same as you can see on commercial TV except in the first round the guys are the contestants and the girls are the prizes. By the second round familiar clichés like "voting people off the island" and a prize of ?1,000,000 turn up. We see this "show" - which seems to run 24 hours a day - intercut with a man and a woman watching it on TV, as they analyze the competition and try to guess who will prevail. You can guess what these two viewers wind up doing as they watch. You'll probably be right.
The scenery is beautiful; both the landscape and the flesh on view make the viewer wish they were there. The tasks set for the contestants (catch a fish with your bare hands, make a fire with what you can scavenge out of the jungle and cook the fish) may be less enticing. Seven scenes altogether, with dependable Euro-studs and pretty female short-timers.
