That would be awsome to have a few teenagers on the show because I am 15 and I have a 16year old friend and a 14 year old friend. We all no how to do the stuff they do. We even built a hovercraft like on the show. I think we would make an awsome team If we were all over 18. We watch the show every chance we can.

First we would have to kill all the lawyers. (Apologies to the Bard) Can't Happen, Won't Happen, Impossible to insure. Sorry Kids. People sue for stupid stuff and ruin it for the rest of us.

Since this comes up at least once a day, we should probably just take it in turns to post at least one serious response per day (unless the kids start READING THE STUPID FAQ BEFORE POSTING ... sorry for the shouting ... I'm OK now ... it's been a long day).
The current show is widely perceived as Much Too Dangerous For Minors (at least in the US). I can just imagine the fuss if some 16-year-old amputated his own foot with a cutoff saw.
Both Cathy Rogers and Andy Bell (they work for the show's production company) have said on the Internet that they are thinking about a version for kids. They have also said that there are no concrete plans for this yet.
Tomorrow is someone else's turn.

Me and my friends LOVE this show and we are completely capable of doing the same things.I think a show specifically for teenagers or even letting teens on the show would be a great improvement to this type of programing(because teens don't get to do nothing fun).I would personally sign a waiver(well get my parents to)just to get on the show.I would really like to see this taken seriously so anybody who feels the same should voice their opinions.

Read the FAQ.
You can't nullify child protection laws with a waiver. Just like you can't nullify mandatory helmet laws with a waiver, either.
A separate series for children might happen, but there won't be any children on the current series. Sorry.
