The Cut

Fortune hungry contestants must sever a part of their own bodies then tastefully cook it for the judges on an internet reality show.

A “Matt Gibbons” FILM
WRITTEN BY Matt Gibbons

When a global call promising international fame and a large sum of money grabs the imagination of the internet thousands of people sign disclosure agreements. After being well screened 8 contestants are flown to a secret South Pacific mansion.

They are;
Jesse, a big guy with more to gain by losing some weight.
Stella, an approval seeking ex beauty queen and part time porn star.
Akarsha, a goth fetishist into pain and body modification.
Andy, an activist with an agenda who needs a platform.
Zamir, a big hunk of a body builder who wants the world to know how tasty he is.
Xin, a paraplegic on a mission to buy some robotic limbs.
DJ Extreme, a failed reality TV contestant out for fame at all costs.
Ella, a solo mother of two with a terminal illness.

The contest takes place over 8 weeks with the contestants ranking up internet 'Likes' that can be traded for sponsorship deals. Each week there is a medical team standing by. A contestant has to make the cut themselves and then receive brief treatment before racing against the clock to make their nominated dish.

After four have been eliminated they must make 'the cut' on another contestant and cook them, if they are too brutal they can expect the same.

In the final week there is no medical assistance.

But that was all in the disclosure agreement...
