This isn't a post saying how reality TV isn't real at all. On the contrary I'm saying it is real.
-Reality T.V show contestants often have an idealistic or even unrealistic appearance. The summer TV show More to Love talked about how the average female reality contestant were a size 2 and that's certainly not reality.
It is however, common for the media to have a warped view on reality and put the most attractive and or compelling people on television. That's the true reality of it all. Why should Reality T.V be any different? The only difference is the show doesn't start out completely with scripted action. There is somewhat of an unpredictability factor here.
-Parts of these shows are predetermined and contestants are even given scripts. The real parts are edited out if they are even there at all.
Isn't it true that companies, schools and families retain from sharing information that will make them look terrible? Reality television is the same way. In fact, that just makes it more realistic. The only way to know what is really happening would be to be there yourself. If a contestant said something dreadful about a show that revealed something secret of course the producers will not air it.
-Reality T.V promotes easy success with little work.
In life a select few will always get a lucky break. It may be unfair but it just is.
If you have anything to say about reality TV I'd love to hear it and will offer an alternate point of view if applicable :) Thanks for reading!
