With the fast growing trend of reality television, I’ve realized now that these shows are the COMPLETE opposite of reality. In fact, they are so opposite from what the real world is, it’s almost like it’s a joke. The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, The Real World, The Real Housewives shows are just a few ridiculous programs that are nothing more than bad actors acting like idiots for half an hour to an hour.
The Real World? More like The Fake World, seven people living in a dream house, in a dream city, free of charge, with no responsibilities what so ever besides maybe a minimum wage job two days a week. There is nothing wrong with a show like this on television, the problem is, that people are viewing this, and thinking that this is the way to live, when in reality it’s nothing more than a glorified two month vacation world.
These shows are very entertaining, I just have a problem with the younger aged generation thinking this is the way to go about life. I hate to sound as if I have a conservative attitude towards these shows, because I do not. I just do not want people to honestly look at these shows as if it is the real world. Going on a show to beat out twenty other men/women for the affection of one person, is not the real world, or at least I hope not.
