Is this what the massive world broadcasting has came to? For the simple fact it's cheap? No acting required. No writers. Just, well, No education at any level. Except, accept and be stupid?

@Egor17 Acting is required to play roles in their scripts. My family thought reality shows were real till I set them straight. Years ago I watched an MTV Real World 'behind the scenes' short that showed it was nothing but scripted.

To some extent. Watching "Deadliest Catch" about the Alaskan crab boats I can see a lot of it is real, but they don't swear enough for true reality on a crab boat (worked them when I was younger). But the way that there always happens to be a main theme/plot/disaster each episode is obviously for drama, would make boring TV to watch them work on a calm sunny day with no issues. At the same time what they show in the drama can be very real and deadly (the young lad who replaced me when I left was lost at sea after only 3 weeks).

If you mean programs like Big Brother or Love Island, then as they have no link to any form of reality I wish to acknowledge, I just ignore them. smiley

@DogsLife Oh Ye. I've worked deadly and survived. So no disrespect for "real" dangerous work.

I would just like a filter on this site to ignore anything with the "Reality-TV" tag. Nothing 'real' about any of them. They just seem to fill the site.

Reality TV is fake just like News TV.

Somewhat... However, at the end of the day it is all for entertainment purposes so I don't give it much thought unless it is the real extra cheesy ones that are quite obviously scripted.

I think some of it is real but I think producers egg on fights or promote a "bad guy" in reality shows. I think they edit and cut scenes to make them look a certain way or to show someone in a certain light. I think a great example is season 6 of American Horror Story - Roanoke. If you haven't watched that season than do. They did an amazing and creative way of showing probably how the inner workings of a reality show. smiley

Scripted comedies are mind numbingly fake. Rom-coms are lethal!! Half the documentaries lean toward photographic and editing wonder than science. Wrestling; oooh and those talent shows!! Now those will give ya whiplash smh!! It's all crap entertainment. All of it. Even fishing shows are staged. So gotta wonder why we be pickin' on reality TV?
(wait) "...talk host announces this seasons bachelor is a virgin marine." smiley

Total Corn. Examples;
Mr. Bear Gryles staying in hotel suites when he was supposed to be surviving in the wild. that survival family from Alaska, the Bush Family? yeah, not so much from the bush, they've even been in the courts for their bs fake crap.
The list could go on & on & on. Its all scripted. All of it, somehow to a point, or completely scripted. Even Survivorman was known to survive off of the known trails and right off of highways and stuff. There is proof everywhere on the internets.. Its all a sham, one way or another. Production values for the most views equal $$$

I would have to say that I think most are scripted and setup to be entertainment so they are not "Reality" at all.

Ye sure they are scripted. But don't they come free in cereal boxes?
I just don't like 'Reality-TV' shows! Luckily I watch entertainment through the internet and have lots to choose from. It's just that they take up a lot of pages. Would be nice to be able to filter them out.

I REALLY dislike the so-called reality shows and was happy to see this thread. I thought people for the most part believed they are real and it made me wonder just how deluded society has become. I have only watched one but did as a series not as reality. It was totally obvious how unreal it could have possibly been because what they were doing was fiscally impossible not to mention they lived and worked in freezing weather and you never saw their breath!

i think some people know it's fake, but they still watch to see others making assh*les of themselves and maybe catch some of them strutting around half nakey. truth be told, fake shows like jerry springer and maury are the only ones who are keeping it real

Hoarders: buried alive. That one is real, although it it’s more like a doc, I guess. The others are soft-scripted mostly. And you can tell because those reality tv “actors” are terrible, lol. But, most of the “stupid” is REAL. And it’s compunded stupid. They are drama queens who want attention, so they wouldn’t use a filter even if they had one. Live PD isn’t scripted. It’s on about a 30 min delay, but it’s pretty much just a cam following cops or the cam is right on the cops.
