The X Factor has taken the US by storm. Simon Cowell's decision to take this powerhouse program from an already successful venture in Britain to America has paid off handsomely, drawing in viewers by the millions twice a week as the country tunes in to watch performers and vote on their fate.
To promote the show, Ford, Expedition's sponsor, has put forth a unique challenge. On Thursday, June 23, New York's Times Square Military Island will be transformed into a makeshift desert, complete with sand dunes, and offer passersby various physical activities promoting team competition. If you're up for it, you can experience a scaled down version of the challenges given to Expedition's competitors in this Expedition Impossible interactive event.
Little Britain creators, Matt Lucas and David Walliams, have taken it upon themselves to further blur the line between comic reality and fantasy with Come Fly With Me, a hilarious, often scathing parody of the popular reality show Airport.
