How Much Reality is in Reality TV?



We all have that guilty pleasure we don’t want the world to know. For some, that guilty pleasure is the Jersey Shore and watching to see Snookie and how big her poof can get. For others it’s the classic Survivor shows that are still going strong, and let’s not forget the now infamous Kardashian clan. We know that  they’re a lot cheaper to produce than scripted shows, how much reality are we getting?


We want to start off saying that they aren’t completely fake! Those are real people that the networks finds and whose lives they film. Now you do have to keep in mind that the networks are filming hundreds of hours of these people lives, and they air the most interesting parts to the public. With that said, there are parts of the shows that aren’t as real as we believe them to be. Sometimes, for the sake of the show, producers will either suggest a certain conversation for the people and then film that conversation. Sometimes the stars of the show will tell the producer that they’re about to drop a bomb on the show, so the crew is there to catch the big moment.


And we can’t forget about the villain of every show! There’s always that one annoying person that everyone hates and just instigates every fight. Now usually there is that one person among the group that is that way naturally so that the producers don’t have to really create one. But what happens when that person isn’t easy to spot in the beginning? Well, the producers wait until that person shows themselves and when their putting the footage together, and then do some kind of voice over so that the audience knows that person is the bad guy.

Even if we know this, does that mean that we’ll stop watching reality TV? Probably not. Whether we like to admit it or not, reality TV is addictive. We like watching other people and either think “These people are crazy!” or “I want to be that person!” and we don’t blame you, we love them too!
