Reality Shows Aren't real
October 3, 2015 9:19am CST
I am not a fan of reality shows because I believe that those I had seen on televisions were already scripted. However, these are really popular now a days because reality shows are everywhere. There is no way that people act the way they should in front of a camera. Every body seems to want to act like a real actors and actresses. I cannot even understand why there are people who allowed their personal issues to be brought on national television. But that is their choice and there is nothing I can do about it. What is your take on reality shows?

Depends on what type of reality shows you're talking about. Restoration shows, I love those. Especially the house flippers. Reality dating? Hate them. Nothing but a sleaze fest. They do serve one good purpose though. If we ever see any of those people in real life, we know to stay away from them.

Well, here's the deal. I know the reality shows are scripted to the extent where "diary" conversations are prompted by questions from the producers. But you are seeing the real people. I watched a television drama this evening, popular series, and I thought "what bad acting". That is why reality shows are so popular. You are seeing real reactions to real situations, scripted or not, while actors are basically saying lines they memorized. A lot do it well, some do it poorly.

Well as long as they are entertaining I don't think people would mind at all. Even if some are preset and does not actually happen in real time, I still would like to believe most are as real as they could be. You just need to find the most real that you're interested in out of all the reality shows out there.
