    Reality Television

    What is your opinion on reality TV? You know, the kind of entertainment where people are put in unusual situations & have every moment videotaped, so the good parts can be edited for your entertainment. Big Brother, The Real World, Survivor, that kind of programming. Or the other kind, where 'celebrities' or other people are followed around in their 'real' life. Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Real Housewives, etc...



    I think most of it is trash. And there is almost nothing real about any of it. Worst of all it makes celebrities out of persons who names I won't even dignify by mentioning.



    Real reality tv, in my opinion, is sports & games shows. And documentaries. Not Paris Hilton or any of the extended members of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

    I'm watching some shows on Discovery like Ultimate Survival. I suppose they count as reality TV? Although it's supposed to be a survival guide and some scenes aren't shot spontaneously. But this is advertised on the screen every time before the show begins. Some peoples badmouth it for this reason, but I enjoy watching because it's useful information, it's supposed to teach peoples how to survive. These shows have a pragmatic reason as the purpose, so it's a different category in my view.

    I don't enjoy reality TV shows like Big Brother. Big brother was very popular when I was in gymnasium. Everyone was talking about it but I didn't watch anything so I was out of the loop with what happened every day. Some of the names mentioned don't ring a bell to me because I'm not a fan of this genre. That means things involving celebrities, housewife gossip and more.

    It really is trash. They came up with a brilliantly evil and totally jewish idea.. save production costs and humiliate the common "goyim." This came to me when I saw "Fear Factor" where they found a few beautiful girls and made them do nasty things like eat worms and see who could stay zipped up in a body bag full of huge roaches in a morgue drawer for the longest. The winner got $25,000 and the rest got nothing. Pretty cheap for a prime time television show, and everyone sees White gentile girls covered in bugs and eating worms. Must make the jew scum who produced this garbage very happy.

    The producer of Fear Factor and The Real World:

    Cheap, boring trash. I don't know what Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the like are about, but Big brother like shows are immoral and boring. Why would I want to see how some guy takes a dump, live? The most people hope is for some contestants to fight or have sex, to spice things up. I don't understand why someone would enjoy this kind of exhibitionism so much.

    makes me want to

    So I assume it's rightfully trash and voted like that. I surely am not going to subject my son to such disgusting garbage.

    One of the people who experienced just how short-lived the new kind of fame is was Zlatko T., one of the stars of the first German series of "Big Brother." Zlatko, an auto mechanic by trade, became famous because he had never heard of Shakespeare, thought "homogeneous" meant a form of homosexuality and picked his nose. The entire country made fun of him. He released a few songs and made a few euros -- and then disappeared again.

    The television world is filled with thousands of Zlatkos today. They are the products of reality TV, which turns ordinary people into celebrities and whose popularity shows no signs of flagging. Nowadays, just about anything can be turned into material for reality TV shows. Whether you're opening a snack bar, emigrating to the Netherlands, moving in with your mother, renovating a rundown old house or having trouble paying your debts -- someone somewhere will be prepared to watch you doing it.

    Back in the day, to be a celebrity meant something else. Nowadays, talent is superfluous.

    Its garbage. Theyre wasting money on producing these types shows, while they could be using it other things, hel maybe they could spend it on making a decent movie for a change.

    It seems to me little of what's on reality TV is natural, impulsive, on the brink of the moment. As if everyone would put on an act to entertain the watchers. I don't fancy it, that's for sure. Thus my vote in this poll, for "trashy".

    I don´t watch reality shows. I can feel my brain starting to decay after watching for even a couple of minutes.

    The only things I watch are the History, Discovery, and Weather Channels.

    I'd rather stare at a wall than watch most of the other garbage on TV.
