I am not on board with this whole reality TV trend. There are a few reality programs that I enjoy, such as:
- Top Chef
- Project Runway
- Undercover Boss
- Antiques Roadshow
However, I have a real problem with all the “Real Housewives” shows and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” The whole idea behind the Real Housewives shows is that they are supposed to be really classy and “socialites” or whatever, but by appearing on a reality show and making disgusting spectacles of themselves, that automatically disqualifies them from being considered classy.
Also, these are people who just want to be famous. They aren’t interesting and have no discernible skill. The great thing about Project Runway and Top Chef is that these shows are competitions where skilled artists compete against one another and the most talented one wins the competition and well - deserved fame.
Reality TV should be a place to showcase people’s skills and other interesting things, not a medium that rewards dumb people for acting like jerks.
That’s my two cents.
