Tontine Nation describes itself as the “ultimate, unofficial fan club for the ultimate reality TV show.” It describes the show as:

“Tontine is a new reality show with the biggest payout in reality TV history, $10 million. Led by host Rob Mariano, 15 contestants invest their entire life savings into the prize pool and compete for 100 days across 7 continents.”

Like An American Band, I think that it is really interesting how aspiring reality shows are using social networks to generate contestants, interest, and momentum ahead of a launch.

I know I’m biased, but I also like how they are using the Latest Activity stream as a feature on every page in the right hand column now that Network Creators have an easy way to add that with the latest release. Here’s the Latest Activity stream on the Main page:

It will be very interesting to see where this all goes…
