A show where contestants are eliminated : the Amazing Race , The Great Capture 2. A show where contestants are transformed physically and mentally Brit Pluck, Green Hell, Two Million I. The reality game "The Amazing Race" seems to correspond best to the game described in document B. First the amount of the prize is similar : a one-million-dollar cash prize for "The Amazing Race
"and a two million one for "The Brit Pluck" game. Both games are based on how enduring the contestants are. They are supposed to go beyond their limits at all cost and the shows last weeks and encourage the viewers to identify to the contestants, as opposed to "The Great Escape". QUESTIONS SERIE L J "The Great Escape" and "Amazing Race" evoke something positive, a contest invented to make people dream, escape from the real world in a race that will astonish, surprise and entertain them. As opposed to those two names, the game christened "Brit Pluck, Green Hell, Two Million" brings to mind a game that will deal with courage, success and failure, terrible ordeals to overcome, suffering and the ultimate reward for the winner : becoming a millionnaire. K 1 critical. Sarcastic K. 2. The narrator firmly intends to overcome the different ordeals he knew he would have to face and go through . He plans to become the winner of the million cash prize, if he survives the remaining week of solitude in the rainforest. The name of the game is almost a summary of what the narrator tells of his experience of the game.
