Eliminating, or singling out, a winner from the group based on their personal preferences in a number of categories, the contestant whittled down the group in categories such as hair color, then choosing to eliminate either blonds or brunettes. Categories ranged from physical attributes, to personality, to bedroom behavior, etc. A second round of assorted physical activities followed, and the remaining contestants then participated in a race of sorts, advancing one step closer by giving the same answer to a question as the contestant.

    Steve the star was born after a chance encounter with his friend, a television producer who was filming in the Park for TV. In true Steve style they took a punt and the first documentary, "The Crocodile Hunter" was produced in 1992. The tremendous success of this one program quickly encouraged the making of more and so over the next 3 years, 10 one hour episodes were made and on television screens all over the world. Steve has now filmed 50 episodes of "Crocodile Hunter", 52 episodes of "Croc Files", and his next project will be an animated series. WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE CROCODILE HUNTER SERIES? Steve: "Our aim is to continue producing more wildlife programmes to entertain and enlighten. We'll take the audience to some of the wildest and remotest territories in the world. The time has come when all of us must be accountable. We don't own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife. It's obvious that every man, woman and child can contribute to the well being of our native wildlife and the planet through simple day-to-day stuff such as recycling, chemical and pollution awareness, and not wasting water. Terri and I eat, sleep and live for wildlife. Our love, passion, and devotion is to educate and share with the world our magnificent - often threatened or sometimes threatening - wildlife. Our job in this world is to bring misunderstood and feared animals (as well as the cute and cuddlies) right into your house, so that we can share and learn about the world's wildlife.

    Terri: "Steve and I are very lucky to live and work with what we love best. Zoo life definitely has its ups and downs but there is nothing else we'd rather be doing. It's our goal and our passion to open everyone's hearts to love and care for wildlife for generations to come."

    Nickelodeon (ended 2000)
    Double dare is undoubtedly the phenomenon that made Nickelodeon what it is today. The rules go something like this:Each round starts off with a toss-up physical challenge. Whoever wins gets $10 and control of the game. Host Marc Summers (Jason Harris in Double Dare 2000) asks the winning team a question. If they don't know the answer or think the other team doesn't have a clue, they can dare them to answer it for double the dollars. But they have to be careful because they can double dare the first team back for 4 times the amount. Then, they either have to answer the question or take a physical challenge. In round 2, dollar values are doubled. The winner of the game moves on to the obstacle course, where they navigate through 8 obstacles and they win a prize for each obstacle. If they make it through all 8 obstacles, they win the grand prize. Double Dare history On October 6, 1986, the first episode of Double Dare was taped at WHYY studios in Philadelphia. In 1987, Nickelodeon decided to create a short-lived weekend edition called Super Sloppy Double Dare, which was cancelled after about 20 episodes. One year later, in 1988, Fox bought syndication rights from Nickelodeon, so they created another short-lived edition called Family Double Dare. Because Fox wanted more adult material on their network, Family Double Dare was canned after 13 episodes. But the good news: the original Double Dare was still in production.Later, in 1989, other kids game shows came into play, thus causing Double Dare's ratings to drop a little. So Nickelodeon reincarnated Super Sloppy Double Dare and dusted it off to incorporate the "super sloppiness". This version of Super Sloppy Double Dare lasted about one season, but it had 100 episodes, plus a bunch of special episodes. Then, in 1990, Nickelodeon reincarnated Family Double Dare, redesigning the Fox version. A year later, in 1991, because of these new spin-offs, the original Double Dare was cancelled, but its spin-offs remain. In 1992, a two-episode spin-off called Super Special Double Dare was created. In Super Special Double Dare, Nickelodeon celebrities played against each other (usually boys against girls). In the first episode of Super Special Double Dare, the cast of Clarissa Explains It All played against the cast of Welcome Freshmen. The second episode was the NBA All-star special. In 1993, the last season was shown. Harvey had to quit his job of announcer because of the birth of his son Caleb. So Doc Holiday took over. The final episode was the hour-long Family Double Dare Tournament of Cahmpions, which pitted the smartest and fastest teams against each other. After that, Double Dare was officially cancelled, but Family Double Dare played reruns until 1999. Like Marc Summers said in his autobiography, Everything In Its Place, "We had enough episodes on tape to do reruns forever".That could have been the end of Double Dare...until January 22, 2000! Double Dare was reincarnated as Double Dare 2000. Jason Harris was the new host of this short-lived revival of Double Dare. The preview Snick episode of Double Dare 2000 pitted the cast of the Amanda Show and the cast of 100 Deeds For Eddie McDowd against each other. The show was cancelled in December of 2000, but, just like the other Double Dare spin-offs, reruns are shown on Nickelodeon GASmoreless

    Denpa Shonen is a 1998 Japanese reality television show. Its premise is to take lesser known comedians from throughout Japan and place them into absurd and sometimes very unpleasant conditions. The show was so extreme that it was eventually banned from television. One of the better known scenarios involved placing contestants on a remote desert island, and forcing them to survive there and eventually escape back to Tokyo. Another involved having the contestants hitchhike from South Africa to Norway. One of the more controversial involved forcing a young comedian named Nasubi to live in an apartment naked for a year, only allowed to eat what he won from supermarket promotions. After it was removed from television, it moved onto the internet, where it can still be seen today. Any fan of absurd survival challenges, or anyone interested in the limits of human endurance, will find something to like about Denpa Shonen.moreless

    MTV - Music Television (ended 1996)
    House of Style was MTV's groundbreaking catch-all infotainment series on fashion, designers, models, shopping, personal style and the arts. Hosted by world famous model-personality Cindy Crawford, there were no closed doors in regards to fashion shows, movie sets, and access to celebrities, designers and artists. While the show was shot in a casual, hand-held style and edited in a breath-taking manner of cuts, the show approached models, fashion and fashion with level-headed seriousness. Information was presented in a matter-of-fact style; guests were treated with reverence and models, designers and everyone featured were presented and treated as leading artists of our society. Each show was unique from the each other - there were no set studio or stock opening. There was a brief introduction of the episode - taking place indoors or out - from the mundane to the spectacular. The show's content/segments were also random and varied in length and breadth from episode to episode. They covered the full gamut of all fashion - from personal style how-to to the history of Vogue magazine to a designer runway show to every topic in between. When Cindy Crawford was host, there were also many episodes and segments devoted to her life and business ventures from the making of her workout video to her cover photo shoots. Todd Oldham was a frequent how-to contributor when Cindy was the host - his segments usually involved re-purposing an old item (furniture, clothes, etc) into something new & different. There was also a regular feature on shopping with a celebrity. The series started out as a quarterly covering the seasonal fashion changes then increasing in frequency to almost monthly basis until Cindy Crawford left. The series was not as successful with the other hosts and decreased in frequency. The series has not been officially canceled and presumably will return again. There are also many "recap" episodes with segments re-purposed/ edited or re-edited from other episodes - sometimes with new introductions, sometimes without - so it's difficult to keep track of every episode with any accuracy.moreless
