So my son sent me this a few hours ago...my firsth thought was...dam...that's 3 minutes of my life I can't ever get back

Then I thought about reality tv and pondered the pros and cons...surely some good has come from it in the 20 or so years it has graced our screens

And because for the most part...none of us can admit to watching it to those we know...

I thought maybe on an anonymous forum we could discuss the finer points

Somehow I don't think Champ will ever know how loud they clap when he wins that Oscar

Anyone even have a clue what reality show this may have been?

It's a rhetorical question of principal I guess I have been pondering

Can you appear on a celebrity reality tv show...when your only meagre claim to fame...is being on an alternate reality show

Obviously im a celebrity get me out of here...but that doesn't make it right...surely it's a practice that must be banned?

And a survivor all stars...after just 4 seasons...that hardly seems legitimate to me...a bit like Culture Club putting out a best of album or something...

Yeah sure heaps if not most reality TV is crap and much of it these days is pretty much staged too, but personally i dont mind some of it especially the stuff that borders on docco's, just those outback shows, or pickers, reno shows, travel shows, house design, border control type shows, even some of the more trashy stuff like hoarders, cops, catfish or the odd dating show (but most are really bad) I do like Survivor too and have to admit watched most of those Big brothers and amazing race is okay.

I cant handle those cooking shows or the real trashy dating shows though or any of those talent type shows, or those celebrities shows, or weight losing shows etc

BTW. Went around to a mates house to have a few beers and watch the footy one time and there was an old Big brother contestant there, i never liked her on the show and didn't really like her in real life, she was pretty much the same as on TV over confident and loud just toned down a little.

Also use to see quite a few of them out on the Goldie back when big brother was big.
