Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout?

Posted on 14 January 2012 by ScoutingNewsStaff

The same guy who produces Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers, Thom Beers, has introduced a new unscripted show titled Are You Tougher than a Boy Scout? National Geographic Channel gave Original Productions the greenlight to start shooting this spring, shows will air later this year. The challenges will be based on the Scout skills with adults competing against the country’s top Boy Scouts.  “I was three badges short of my Eagle Scout badge, and I know I am not alone,” said Beers. “This series is going to allow people like me one more chance to achieve such an incredible milestone.  Plus, it’s authentic, has a fun and interesting set of circumstances and underdog characters with a story to tell. And frankly, who doesn’t love the Boy Scouts?” Not only will this 6-episode series be interesting, but it will show a great audience the skills the BSA teaches young men and women every day.

    Another good idea would be Biggest Loser: Scout Leader Edition!

    I looked around our Roundtable this month and figured that about 70% of the leaders appeared at least 30 pounds over overweight.

    Hey Sally – From what it looks like it is a US based show. Maybe you can convince Bear Grylls to back a UK show?
