Definitely not the laughing
Reality television is great. You get to indulge in other people’s drama without having to partake in it or deal with the drama yourself. Plus, you can judge all the participants with absolutely no repercussions to your own social life. The antics of reality television might be extremely entertaining, but it begs the question, “how can someone’s life be this dramatic?” or rather “is my life really as boring as I think it is?”
One Redditor asked, “People who have been on reality TV shows, what’s rigged and whats not?” and the reality stars are breaking the fourth wall by telling us their answers.
Read them and weep
She Looked Alright
My friend was on What Not to Wear, and I was in the audience of people who were there to react when she came out from behind the curtain with her new look. She came out over and over again, but our cheering was never enthusiastic enough for the producers. After about 10 takes, we were screaming our heads off, totally hysterical, as if we’d just seen her rise from the dead. So that part was fake; I thought she just looked alright. (seriousrepliesonly)
Not The Coffee!!
Sob stories on singing shows – it’s not the contestant’s fault!
I made it through a few rounds for a well known singing show and they BEG you for sob stories. on my very first application form, I was asked about the most difficult moment in my life, what obstacles I’d overcome to be there, had I ever experienced bullying, etc.
They pretty much make you tell them a sob story. So I wrote all about my heartbreak when I ran out of coffee. (Jenny-Thalia)
