I actually like the thought of applying the same solution as for career

It works like this:

You pick a sturdy, enclosed facility like, say, the Superdome.  You
round them all up, and you herd them in there, and you bar the doors.
You turn off the water, and all power except for overhead lights, and
the air conditioning.  You wait, oh, about three days.

On the third day, you open up a maintenance hatch or something similar
in the roof, and you drop in about forty or fifty spiked clubs.

On the fourth day, through the same hatch, you slowly lower in a tray
with twenty Big Macs and four six-packs of soda on it.

Naturally, you film everything.  Pay-per-view will probably recoup all
costs and more.
