Wild Kids

Wild Kids is a Swedish reality show for children that has aired for three seasons on Sveriges Television. Ola Lindholm has been the host of the show since the first season, which aired in 2005. The second season was filmed in late 2006 and aired in early 2007. The third season, also hosted by Lindholm, aired in 2009, and a fourth season is currently in production. Described as a children's version of Survivor, the show features two teams of children competing with each other in competitions in the Swedish forest Kolmården, where they live together until the show is over and the winners of the final win a trip to Africa. Unlike Survivor, however, a new contestant joins the competition every week and no one gets sent home. The new contestant joins the team that won that week's competition. The goal is to have as many contestants as possible in one's team as it will give the team an advantage in competitions and eventually the final. Wild Kids won the Kristallen television award in 2007 for "Children's Show of the Year". The show has been considered a ratings success for SVT, and the episodes of the show's second season were viewed by approximately 625,000–700,000 people. In 2007, new episodes of Wild Kids received 200,000–300,000 views every week on SVT's online channel SVT Play, making it the channel's second most popular television show of the year.
