Reality Vacations??

As if traditional vacations aren't "real" enough, you can live out the experience of competing on a reality show "competition" that IS your vacation.

Reality Village is a part of th eBravo Club in Stintino (Sardinia), a new type of holiday village in Italy inspired by Big Brother and numerous other reality TV shows. Bravo itself is owned by Alpitour, the largest tour operator in Italy.

The 'adventure' begins upon arrival at the village, where 180 guests go through a real casting session to form six teams of each 30 people, facing a week of challenges, all captured by ubiquitous cameras. Think putting together a naturist calendar, cooking a dish or taking part in pool games. Every night, footage is shown and judges announce an individual winner who gets to pick another contestant to take to a holiday suite and spend the night with. The day's loser will be sent out on a raft together with a person of his/her choice.

I saw this in the Springwise(.com) Newsletter, which features some of the latest trends out there.
