Rory was on the news here a bit ago and he said they have to undergo intensive medical exams every other day to make sure they are staying hydrated and not losing too much weight. But I think them making sure you don't die isn`t really scripting the show - everyone knows they aren`t really going to starve to death, it`s just fun to see them suffer.

hate to tell you- but survivor isn't even close to real...well...technically. while i`m not sure if they have lines or scenes to go over, there is a great deal of `lagging` to the truth. first of all, the elements have very little control on the show. if you get hurt on survivor, they`re gonna get you some medical help. if a hurricane is on its way, they`re going to get you off the island or wahtever. the crew constructs little huts or whatever for shelter. anti-venoms are available to any poisonous animals. finally, the fact that they have a camera and technical crew that aren`t going to be living off of snake eyeballs and giraffe testicles (rather real food) should certify that chances of starving are slim.
they may be giving away a million dollars- but they are taking in much more.

Actually, I didn't read it on the internet, I saw it on the Reality of Reality show I mentioned earlier, and on the Apprentice E! True Hollywood Story. This was straight out of the contestants` mouths, not from some guy who wrote a book. I wasn`t even aware there was stuff online, where is that at?
They probably had Wes and Maria leave together as an exception since that was a weird time - I doubt they actually filmed everyone leaving in pairs too.
