Poll: You’re Stranded on a Deserted Island

When you’re stranded on a deserted island it’s survival of the fittest. Who do you choose to help you get out alive?

Aaahh. Today is the day. You are finally going to get that week long vacation to the Bahamas and some quality R&R. All of your clothes are packed, and you leave work at 5:00 on the dot.

The Uber driver shows up at your office and takes you to the airport. He's a maniac who's swerving in and out of lanes without so much as his blinker on, yelling to you about politics and other news worthy events.

As he's pulling up to the drop off lane at the airport you can't wait to get away from this nut job, so you grab your bags and run inside.

Your bags are checked and you board the plane with just you, the crew and one other passenger. The plane takes off.

BOOM, PLOT TWIST! The plane runs stalls mid flight and starts going down. The crew jumps out of the emergency exit with the remaining parachutes and say to you and the other passenger, “Good luck on the landing!” Didn't see that coming did you?

The passenger and yourself survive the crash but bad news, you're on a deserted island that echoes what you saw on the TV show, Lost.

What're you going to do now? You have a limited supply of those cheap airplane snacks, we both know how bad and unsatisfying that stuff is. “Sorey” (as our Canadian friends would say), but the Schnapps and Mikes Hard lemonade are all gone too. It sure looks like you won't be getting mildly buzzed on this trip. No Jack Sparrow for you.

Here's where you, the dear reader, comes in. You get to decide who the other passenger is. You may ask, “What are the parameters for your choice in survival partner?” The first parameter is that they have been a University of Michigan Football player, coach, or analyst - except for Jim Harbaugh, because we all know we would pick him in a second - and to narrow it down a little further we gave you ten choice below.

To make it interesting let's say that you have to survive on this island for 18 months and your supplies run out after the first 4 weeks, unless you find a way to make it off the island Castaway-style. Good luck.


Who Will Your Survival Partner Be?
