Strange how they all hated the middle class teacher, she was too posh to deserve one million pounds. The tattooed easy going policeman (even though police are paid more than teachers, and have a much more powerful and bullying trade union) was considered much more deserving, he received 89% of the public's vote and all the other survivor's votes. The mechanism by which a moral judgement of class is made does not function in politics, or perhaps it does, just that the electorate believes in being ruled by its betters.
The other peculiarity is that the ultimate survivor is decided by a popularity contest not a race or a test of endurance or mental strength. But maybe that is accurate.
