Okay, first of all I’m not a huge fan of reality tv, mostly because when I think reality tv, the “cast” of MTV’s Jersey Shore pops into my brain. I know, I know, I KNOW there are other reality tv shows that are not as bad, but that is what pops into my brain.
The second reason I’m not a fan of reality tv is because it isn’t reality. A producer takes the hours upon hours of footage these people generate and turns that footage into either a 1/2 hour or full hour tv show to be aired once a week, which means shit gets left out. Important shit. Shit that might explain why someone did something when we were expecting something else. And lets face it, the people watching reality tv want to see the gnarly shit. The shit that makes the people on screen look like giant idiots. Though I have to admit its probably not far from the truth when it comes to some of these shows. all that to say, the producers of these shows are after good ratings, so they’re going to do WHATEVER they can to get as many viewers as possible. And I do mean WHATEVER they can. So those on reality tv shows stand a very real possibility of being portrayed as something they’re not. And I have a really big problem with people thinking I’m something when I’m not, so I’m going to have to pass on me ever having a reality tv show.
