Remember Kid Nation? It was a reality show that aired on CBS in 2007, featuring 40 children aged 8 to 15 attempting to create a functioning society with minimal adult help and supervision. It was interesting, controversial, and ridiculous all in one, and the best/worst part was that the idea for a second season was nixed due to legal child labor problems (!).
Well, I always wondered what happened to those kids, so for my very first post ever, I tracked down pictures of almost all of them. Enjoy!!!
