"Come Dine with Me", is the only legit real reality show that's beast and that real thugs watch imo. Every time it's something different to offer from hotties, milfs, idiots and just really weird people preparing food for each other.

They were played out 10 years ago. It was a clever idea at first but its long dead. Why we still have them is beyond me.

My sister's boyfriend was trying out for one of these reality cooking shows for self-taught cooks. He made it through the first and maybe second round. And then came the interview portion.

Every person had some sob story about how important it was for them to be on this show.

Meanwhile, he's just there like, "Yeah, my life is alright. I have a decent job and I'm pretty happy with things."

You're not getting selected with that kind of attitude.

I mean, they usually suck, but I feel like a lot of people complain about them out of jealousy. Some of these people are rich famous for airing their relationship drama and allowing cameras to capture their every-night club fuckery for the world to see. No talent required.

Can't even hate though. They getting that bread.

Reality TV vs competition shows.

Not sure what the TV category names are, but reality TV and "reality" competition shows or whatever aren't the same type of show

A good "reality competition show" (or whatever) is on AMC right now, called The Pitch. Advertising teams compete to represent a big corporate brand.

I never heard of that, sounds interesting.

This will sound weird, but I wanted to be in advertising because of Angela from 'Who's the Boss'.

And I agree, reality tv shows and comptition shows should be separated.

there is some kind of reality show currently being filmed here in Dallas staring 3 girls...forget what it is called but from what has leaked by others who were at some of the filmings it is all 100% staged. The have fake parties with fake fights and fake drama and then on top of that they dressed some of the people up with cowboy hats and make them talk with a fake 'Texas twang'...it is very much like WWF Wrestling




There are still millions of morons out there who will believe every second of it and it eat right up. Sadly.

This "people watch too much tv" is nonsense. I hardly watch any tv and I'm a complete waste of life.

I love reality shows that are genuine. Almost all of them now days are obviously faked and I can't stand to even watch them.

Past ones they don't show much any more...Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, Black Gold, Mantracker, Jersey Shore lol, A Basement Affair, Full Throttle Saloon, All Worked Up

Oh and a recent one is Street Outlaws and before that LA Street Racers and Street Heat
