I'd be interested to see who their "panel of survival experts" are. This could be interesting.

When I die, bury me 8 feet under, so I'll still be lower than all my friends.

Sharon Levy, executive vice president of original programming at Spike, said the series doesn't necessarily coincide with the theory that the ancient Mayan civilization predicted the end of the world will arrive in December 2012.
OMG, the world is ending in 2012 and this is how they are going to pick the survivors? Certainly Western civilization is better than this?

Guess not.

I agree. It does have bunks for 8 people, so my guess would be 7 of those bunks will become "long term food storage".

There's a fridge and some cupboards. What more could anyone possibly need? :?

On a couple other sites it says the winners will win a "SPOT" in a survival shelter - they don't actually get their own private shelter. From Spike TV's site a competition reality show involving families who are vying for a spot in a state-of-the-art underground Vivos bunker fortified to withstand nearly any end-of-days disaster scenario

But yeah, I'll be watching this show to see what kind of asshats they find to be part of it. Look at every other "reality" show and see how they on purpose pick people that are total opposites of the others so there will be drama and confilict.

"Winners will be selected by a panel of survival experts, with viewers given a say through social media"

I hate that people are able to "make their vote count" on TV shows now.

That said, I hope I can find this show on Hulu or Netflix when it airs.
