One of my favorite reality shows is Amazing Race because of the fantastic places the contestants travel. Places I will probably never see in person. And the tasks they have to accomplish before being able to venture to the next destination are often stressful.
This show appeals to my wilder side although I couldn’t do one leg on my best day. One, no one would be my partner as I tend to snap when tired, hungry, no sleep, hungry, tired, and frustrated. DH is pretty saintly when it comes to putting up with me in one of my moods. Two, the editing on me would show a raving lunatic because when I get tired, hungry, no sleep. . . Ugly American would take on a new meaning.
But my characters can travel and be uber bouncy, not sarcastic and snipey.
