New Survivor Series for Dads



Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.

Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes.

There is no fast food.

Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of “pretend” bills with not enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.

Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time.

Each man must also take each child to a doctor’s appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment . He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care (weekend, evening, on a holiday or right when they’re about to leave for vacation).

He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function.

Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

There is only one TV between them, and a remote with dead batteries.

Each father will be required to know all of the words to every stupid song that comes on TV and the name of each and every character on cartoons.

The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, which they will apply to themselves either while driving or making three lunches.

Each man will have to make an Indian hut model with six toothpicks, a tortilla and one marker; and get a 4 year old to eat a serving of peas.

Each man must adorn him self with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep their nails polished and eyebrows groomed. The men must try to get through each day without snot, spit-up or barf on their clothing.

During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties. They must try to explain what a tampon is for when the 6-yr old boy finds it in the purse.

They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

He will need to read a book and then pray with the children each night without falling asleep, and then feed t hem, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair each morning by 7:00. They must leave the home with no food on their face or clothes.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father wil be required to know all of the following information: each child’s birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size and doctor’s name.Also the child’s weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child’s favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite
drink, favorite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up.

They must clean up after their sick children at 2:00 a.m. and then spend the remainder of the day tending to that child and waiting on themhandand foot until they are better.

They must have a loving, age appropriate reply to, “You’re not the boss of me”.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance.

The last man wins only if…he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment’s notice.

If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and overagain for the next 18-25 years…eventually earning the right to be called Mother!


:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Try it with 6 kids.


That’s excellent!! I love it!

I do almost all of that stuff and have five children… I didn’t realise how much I did until I read that!
Aren’t we mothers amazing???


How much beer is available for this challenge?

Am I allowed to drink it all in the first episode?


They also have to successfully deal with all the laundry, treating the stains and sorting by child and type.
Clean folded clothes cannot sit more than an hour.


Winner of the series gets to star in “The Bachelor”.

He would have sooooo many women trying to marry him!:stuck_out_tongue:


there will be a play-off to resolve ties
each participant will get a positive PG test and be judged on their reaction to the news.


No. The mommies get to go to “beer island” or “chocolate island” while the men are doing this.


Knowing this is supposed to be funny - but there is a bit of bias in these jokes. There are many many dads who are fantastic parents, who care for children, who can multi-task and cook and do laundry. :thumbsup:


Yes, but they’re all married !!! :rotfl:

(as well they should be since they’re dads)


I really enjoyed that, but I wish a man would write and tell what it’s like for them. I bet his story would sound just as
amazing as this one.


Very true. I just don’t know any personally.


Well, there are those of us who do do the laundry and other thing. However, since the mothers are going to complain about the dads, I would like to lodge a few complaints:

  1. Why do women insist on buying cloths that can’t be dried? I end up doing about a load a week of sweaters and pants that I have to hang all over the living room to dry. None of my cloths are “lay flat to dry…” I’m not talking just about the shirts with things attached where I know the dryer would kill them, I’m talking about a pair of pants that seem like nothing special.

  2. I have no trouble budgeting the money for groceries and formula each week. What I don’t like budgeting for are the “impulse buy” toys and excess gifts. I look at the playroom for our kids and think of the saints who took it upon themselves to live with little and lived such full lives. My son Matthew got over 50 (no, that’s not an exaggeration) toys for Christmas. Had he played with each toy just for one day since, there would be some he would have only played with once.

  3. Men generally don’t have a “loving, age appropriate” reply for “your not the boss of me.” Call it my competitive nature, but a statement like that makes me feel the need to prove it.

Ok, done with the complaints…

  1. Making cookies is not a problem. I am already teaching my son how to cook (see attached pictures).

  2. Having the TV on only after chores are done would result in it never being on. Let’s accept a certain amount of dirtiness. There’s always something to be dusted or vacuumed, and if it’s all done the stuff that was done first is probably dirty again! Oh, Matthew has his own vacuum cleaner (Bissell regular) AND he vacuums with it, I have five (Bissell lift-off, Shop-Vac, Dustbuster, Dirt Devil, Hoover Steam Vac). My wife has none.

  3. I’ve went out in spit-up stained cloths. I feel that it doesn’t matter that much since i’m not looking to find a date! I wear it as a badge of honor!

I’ve taken my two sons out on trips for a few days, with no problems. Give us a little credit! We can do it. Perhaps not in the same ways most mommys do, but it’s good for our kids to see that there are different solutions to the same problems.

And as the final proof that a dad can raise a child just as good as a mom: My daughter Abigail became a saint after 13 days of earthly life. Her heavenly father is raising her right now. I wouldn’t even dare to put my abilities up against His since he gave me the good I have:) And I have no doubt that He is doing it the right way!!!


I love your pictures! Cute family!


Honestly, i think it would be awful to do that to kids just for entertianment


Sorry, I can’t find the edit button. The above post refers to the reality show not to the cutie pies that are posted above. Great job with your kids aHapka


Hey Andy, is that you? Nice to put a face with the name!

I agree with the clothing complaint, so I only rarely accidentally buy something problematic for my girls. I dry sweaters. It drives my mom nuts that we don’t iron anything. If it isn’t wash and wear, we don’t wear it. Hey, homeschooling four children is enough fun without hanging stuff all over. But, for your viewing pleasure…
