5. Survivor: Manhattan

OK, maybe Survivor: Natives Vs. Civilization was a bit insensitive, but the big city is still a perfect location for the series. You don't need to go to the jungle, the outback, or a tropical paradise to get minimalist; the 20 contestants on Survivor: Manhattan will have to spend an entire week in the Big Apple with nothing but a $20 Metrocard and the clothes on their backs. Good luck to all! As Elf taught us, don't eat any gum you find on the street—it's not free candy.
