Over the past few decades, Reality Television has been growing in popularity with shows such as Survivor, Big Brother, Fear Factor, Survivor and Star Academy. Reality television programs are of different types, but all have one thing in common - they make ordinary people famous, if only for a few days.


Why are these TV shows so popular? Some people say that they watch these programs just to be part of the "in" crowd. Others think that only dull people watch these TV shows. However, psychologists say that reality television viewers are not less intelligent than non-viewers. They also found out that people who watch reality television were more competitive than people who don't watch it.


Do you watch reality TV shows? What do you think of these programs? Would you like to be a contestant on a reality TV show? Why / Why not?

    Just because the people on screen are not actors does not mean that they are not acting. Even if these reality tv candidates are are just amateurs, they are actors who are following the instructions of the directors of the shows. so there is no reality in these shows.
