A well run trip of environmentally conscious boaters just wouldn't have enough drama for this shit media.
I can just envision the scout at Killer Fang Falls with Bubba Joe Moran trying to talk everyone into running it in their sit-on-top kayaks...
No, as long as we can keep the Kayakers out of the show it will be fine;
I mean, the drama of the groover thing would add style to the show each day; and imagine the drama of pulling up on Lava after 10 shows of; This is (insert rapid of the day).........Lava makes this thing look like a flat water coast.
But the downside is that every putz in 50 states will be buying their Walmart $40 pool toy, strapping on the seat cushions from their couch (use bottom seat cushion for floatation) and heading for the nearest creek or river.
But keeping the kayakers out of the show may be a challenge; I can envision night raids by fleets of kayakers following the smell of hops down river to the source (production teams cooler full of Dos Equis) and creating even more drama.
Or, it could be that in a flash of brilliant production they'll bring in the stars from their other reality shows for a run down Cataract at spring flood. (Imagines cast of Pawn Stars standing around artifact debating value of item while slurping down stolen Dos Equis)
