Reality TV ... Is it pure entertainment or a hot mess?

Updated on August 22, 2012

Reality TV

Reality TV has become a huge phenomenon worldwide by giving the public close insight into the private lives of our favorite celebrities as well as catapulting the careers of some unknown people. I will admit that there a select few shows that I have continued to watch and there are others that have become a bit too much for me.

Personally, I feel like if you are going to be part of a reality show then you need to be 100% real - that's just my opinion. Yes, I understand that there is an entertainment factor to many of these shows; however, reality is not scripted ... reality is life, plain and simple.

There are good moments, bad moments and blah moments ... that is real life.

I have listed a number of the reality shows that I've watched ... some of them I will continue to watch and there are a few that I won't just because I feel that they have gone over the top a little too much.

Reality Shows I've Watched ...

I know you probably looked at my list and was really surprised by some of the shows I viewed ... what can I say, I enjoy a wide range of things and that is just my personality.

I do think that there are some excellent reality television shows on right now; however, there are those select few that I wonder ... what were they thinking and why? I hope that you have enjoyed reading about my thoughts on Reality TV and I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.

Share your opinions as well as a snapshot of some of the shows that you've watched ... I'm looking forward to your responses.

Until next time ...

      Thanks for reading mismazda and I appreciate your feedback on the Hub. Some reality shows have definitely gone above and beyond the call of duty :o)
