    It was on last night. I forgot I had set it to record and then discovered it this morning. Looks like it's going to be an interesting show. It's a little like Survivor, but there's only one challenge, they gotta find the treasure. There are some other differences. The pirates have to elect a captain, the captain then elects to officers. Those three people get to black mark three pirates, the pirates can mutiny and send the captain home. Oh and the teams are suppose to get mixed up all the time, so alliances, especially early ones may not be as important. Should be interesting.

    Note: That mutiny requires unanimous vote. Also the prize is not just at the end, it is divided throughout the competition. I guess the reason to fight till the end is more chances to win more prizes (that and I am sure placing 1st will get you a certain sum). Oh also the captain and officers get nice beds while the others get ho hum beds. I agree, looks like an interesting show and we will see what MB can do with it.

    While there are prizes throughout, the last chunk of treasure is 500,000, so there's definitely good reason to stay

    Thanks I knew it was something like that. Also do we need to spoilerize the winnings amount? Better safe then sorry I guess.

    First the show is on CBS. Second HD reality shows, especially those on the water, are tough to do. All the HD equipment needed is expensive. Think of how many cameras they have to have with 18 or so contestants (I don't recall exact number for Pirate Master, but still)

    I will definiately be checking it out. Like some of the details here it sounds interesting.

    Although as someone in Entertainment Weekly, we are challenged with the haves and have-not concept again, which MB used in both The Apprentice and Survivor this last season.
