Most Likely to Die First: Jared, Age 11
Telling Quote: "In the right hands power can be a very good thing."
Why: Jared will be the first, or among the first, to die in Kid Nation. He is ambitious and hungry for power, but his young age and love of artwork do not give him a competitive edge. If he can swallow his hubris, he may survive for a time as a lackey or lickspittle for one of the bigger kids, but eventually his dumb face will get him on their bad side.
How: Expect to see him dragged off by one of the ruler's guards in the first five to ten days. He'll be screaming, "I made you who you are! I believed in you!" No more will be seen or heard from Jared, until escapees from the pleasure pit find his sun-bleached bones beneath a pile of bloodstained rocks.
Kid Nation is a real show, by the way. May God have mercy on our souls for not hunting down and killing the parents who whored their kids out for $5000, which is what any civilized society would do.
