Reality TV Show Idea #45: Bathroom Splashers!

Title: Bathroom Splashers!

Concept: Ten contestants, picked from a nationwide audition process held in local Bed, Bath & Beyonds are challenged to wash their hands in a public bathroom in a timely manner, with the least amount of splash-residue. At the end of a ten week competition, two will remain — and one will go away with $100,000, a brand-new hi-tech designed bathroom and a year’s supply of Dial Antibacterial Soap.

Why It’s A Winner: Next to climbing Mount Everest and eating three packets of saltine crackers in a minute without water…washing ones’ hands without leaving a general sink/water residue is the toughest skill to develop. Current unscripted TV shows give wannabe-chefs the chance to get a dream job doing what they love… Overweight folks get the chance to lose weight and win money… Even nerds and beauty-queens get the opportunity to exist outside their comfort zone and go home a winner. In comparison to Bathroom Splashers!, these previously aforementioned shows have only half the entertainment value.

What’s Entertaining About It? Bathroom Splashers! brings the most annoying part of using a public bathroom to your home entertainment experience. How often do you walk up to a public bathroom sink/countertop and find water everywhere…as if someone took a bath in the sink itself? That frustration bridges racial stereotypes, financial gaps and religious ideologies in this country (and the world). Everyone knows how tough it is to keep the water IN the sink and OFF the countertop. Everyone can eat a scorpion or a bull’s testicle, but keeping water in the sink? That’s tough cookies, folks. Watching hapless Bed, Bath & Beyond patrons try to win the big money by washing their hands will blow shows like The Amazing Race (or, as we like to call it The American Airlines Ticket Challenge) and Survivor out of the water (no pun intended).

How Can I Apply? Application details will be available as soon as this project is purchased by a major network or cable channel for production. I will keep you updated on this.

Are You Feeling Confident This Can Be Made? Yes. Yes I am.

    OH Yah Pauly, This would DEFinitely be a hit. And don’t forget the spin-off show: “Toothpaste Vicinity Games” where contestants try to keep their toothpaste spit particles in the general vicinity of the bowl of the sink, not the handles and spout. Caveat: These shows are not for everyone.

    How about something family oriented like “Piddle Paddle Splatter Battle” where families with young children square off to see which has the least amount of pee-pee around a single shared toilet bowl at the end of a fluid-filled activities day. Veiwers would witness varying forms of the pee-pee dance and sit at the edge of their chairs wondering if little Susie or Jack, or even Dad for that matter, can hold it long enough to get into the bathroom while Mommy goes first — because mommy always goes first. Winners get a year’s supply of Lysol bathroom wipes and a new wider seat toilet.

    Yes, the splasher is annoying (especially if he/she left a puddle of hand soap under the dispenser) but I think we need to look at the bigger picture. At least they actually washed their hands! I think most people would be surprised (and revolted) at how many people are not hand-washers. *shudder*

    Yes, but will these contests be held in actual public bathrooms? I, um… I mean that SOME people might have issues with touching the faucets in a public bathroom. If contestants want to use a paper towel to protect themselves from the filth and germs that infest the faucet handles when they turn the faucets on, will that be permitted?
