When it comes to choosing a TV show to watch, there are so many programs to choose from. Some shows were created in order to make you laugh and laugh, some shows are created to make you think deeply, there are shows that just want you to know more about life and what to expect from it. Then, there are shows that are designed to help the “Girl Next Door” get a jumpstart to fame and fortune.
Because I really like reality TV shows, here are my top 3 reality television shows this year:
This show is one of the most popular television shows on the planet and has enjoyed a lot of popularity world wide – there is Big Brother UK and Big Brother Africa. The concept of the show is pretty simple, put people with different personalities and temperaments in a house and let the drama begin! These people will be given tasks to perform and they will just have to come up with ways to get along with each other. There is a lot of backstabbing and scheming in the Big Brother house, and people who are too soft hearted may not stand a chance in the house. The last man or woman standing gets to walk away with a colossal sum of money. The money will compensate for the lack of absolutely no privacy in the house. I really enjoy the drama that goes on in the house.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
I really cannot get enough of this show! I love the concept of helping people rebuild their homes and making it more inviting and comfortable. This show is one that has won the hearts of many viewers. Many families have benefitted greatly from this show, and there are times when you just feel like shedding tears of joy when the beneficiaries of this program get to see their new and improved home. It can be very comforting to know that there is still milk of human kindness flowing in the world that we live in.
Not everyone can bear to watch people eat all sorts of gory and yucky stuff – but I watch this show to marvel at how brave some people actually are. Some contestants on the show are sort of immune to eating horrible stuff, rolling around in smelly and slimy stuff or completing tasks that will make most people gag.
I know that some people hate reality TV shows and actually feel that some shows have been scripted in order to keep viewers interested. I do not think Big Brother, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Fear Factor are shows that have been scripted.
