I think I've lost count of how many reality television shows are out there. I personally enjoy watching these shows mostly to laugh at how moronic most of these people are. The sad part is they are only famous for being famous. They aren't doing anything that is life changing for the world and their shows don't really have any real story to them. Reality television shows are there for people to watch something where it's real people doing things that most wouldn't normally do.
For example the popular reality television show Jersey Shore went for five seasons and all it was about is a group of people spending the summer together. All the people on this show really did was party all the time, get drunk and sleep around. Yet these people have become famous for doing something that makes them look like sluts and douche bags. Granted some of them might have a good heart but what part of taking home a different person every night to have sex with on camera a good thing? You're portraying yourself in a very negative light to the world and even after the show stops airing you're left with that title.
Then there is the show Real World that's been going on for little over a decade now. I'm pretty surprised that this show has gone on for so long seeing as it's the same thing every season. They pick a group of random people the producers feel will make for interesting television and live together for about three months. At least Jersey Shore only lasted five seasons because there was only so much they could do. After so many seasons of strangers living together you would think people would be bored of this show. Every season there is a guy and girl that fall for each other. Then there is always the jerk of the house that everyone hates. There is always even that one person who has the significant other back home that they end up cheating on. I don't even think any one actually watches this show any more or even cares about it. Yet some how these people are famous and asked to show up at clubs for a fee. How does it make sense that you're famous for making an ass of yourself on national television?
What the people on these reality television shows don't realize is that what they do in front of the camera is going to be out there for the rest of their lives. Most of the people on the reality television shows do everything from cussing at each other to having sex on camera. More than half of these people are young adults and don't realize that their are some employers in their future that might look back on these shows as a negative thing. These people don't even think about how they come off when their families watch the shows. I get that they are grown adults and can make their own decisions. What I don't understand is why they don't think before they act. It's not that hard to go "oh I'm about to do something I might regret later" then don't do especially when there is a large audience watching you on television. Would you feel good about yourself if someone came up to you saying "I know you from that show where you showed your titties at that party"? What if someone said that in front of your children? In the end you only have yourself to blame for what you did on television especially if it was something negative.
I'll always enjoy watching reality televisions shows but I do wish that the people on these shows were a bit more intelligent. It's truly not that hard to make the right decisions that you won't regret later on in your life. My advise to these people that go on the reality television shows is before you do something think about whether or not you're going to regret it later on.
