This is my first time playing the game and it's hella fun but I have a question about the victims' stay in the TV world. Why am I allowed to put off saving them for almost a week? Shouldn't they starve to death or dehydrate after staying there too long? So I naturally wanted to save them immediately at first but then I learned you could wait a while before saving someone with no risk of death.... Is this explained?
