'Big Brother' vs. 'Survivor': Zap2it's Reality TV Smackdown

julie-chen-jeff-probst.jpgThe 20th season of "Survivor" is about to come to a close, while the 12th season of "Big Brother" kicks off in just a few short months. So Zap2it is doing another TV Smackdown, reality show-style. Our smackdowns, which started with a epic battle between "Bones" and "Castle," pit two TV series with similar styles against each other in a series of totally objective and scientific absolutely subjective and arbitrary tests to see how they stack up.

"Survivor" and "Big Brother" are known for demanding challenges, scheming, lying, backstabbing, blindsides and characters that range from nutjobs to masterminds. But which show comes out on top? It may be a closer race than you think.

So who wins? You'll have to check out our "Survivor" vs. "Big Brother" gallery to find out, but we want to hear your opinions below. Which reality TV show wins in your smackdown?
