* Both shows are watched for entertainment. Ironically they should not because the competitors’ lives are being endangered. * The tributes in the Hunger Games are not playing for fun; they are in the game because they were chosen from a lottery to win for their district. * S: The Hunger Games and Survivor is about a game of surviving until there is only one person left standing. * D: Each district has to select one boy and one girl from the ages of 12-18 to compete in an annual event called the Hunger Games. In total there are 24 tributes. * D: In the annual Hunger Games, the participants must outlast everyone else by killing their opponents. * S: Alone in this competition is a risk because players make alliances to wipe out everyone else or even backstab each other at random times. This environment means that no one can be trusted, which is what makes the game so complex. * For example with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark. They don’t start off in the same alliance. Peeta allies with a few other people from other districts because they’re targeting Katniss, since she received high pre-ratings before the hunger games began. * D: Survivor contestants from around the U.S. compete for one million dollars by earning the title of Sole Survivor. * D: Before they can achieve that, they must vote off someone from their tribe. Everyone on Survivor is sent to an island separated from humanity. There can only be one winner who is ultimately the Sole Survivor. * S: Survivor represents a figurative version of The Hunger Games, because there is lying and backstabbing among the competitors. * S: People will do whatever they have to for a million dollars, just as people will do whatever they have to do to stay alive. * D: When one gets voted out on Survivor, their torch is snuffed. The person voted out doesn’t die like the characters in The Hunger Games, but he or she gets sent home. * D: Having the torch snuffed is a figurative death to that person. * D: The Hunger Games represents an engaging story that has action and violence. * S: Both, The Hunger Games and Survivor competitors compete for prizes. D: Survivor is a reality game show produced in many countries throughout the world. * S: In the show, competitors are isolated in the wilderness and compete for all types of prizes.
