These days the channels are full of reality shows. You switch on the television anytime and you tune into any channel you are sure to come across one reality show or the other.
But the question is – whether there is any reality in these reality shows. Previously people were very excited to watch these reality shows. Even the repeat telecast was watched with the same enthusiasm. But of late it has been observed that the participants of the reality shows talk, weep and even emote according to the script that has been provided to them. They are more or less with the same kind of expression on their face changing it only when they are instructed to do so.
This sometimes becomes very irritating and monotonous. The scripting of the reality shows highly dramatizes the show and makes it unbelievable. Reality shows were indeed a very nice and popular concept when they were launched for the first time. But was time passed the reality shows have lost their charm and gave way to other shows.
Even the expressions of the participants in the singing or dance reality shows on being eliminated seems to be totally fake . The judges and the hosts of the shows simply enact the script that has been provided to them. Then what is the need to address them as reality shows when the basic reality is lacking in them. It is high time that more reality is shown in the reality shows.
Making a reality show isn’t as simple as pointing a camera at a person and hoping he or she is horrible. There are a lot of tricks and manipulations that producers use to make these more compelling. There’s an argument to be made that no one should think about reality shows– either turn off your brain and enjoy them or brag about how you don’t own a TV.
Adding havoc to a person’s life and hoping you get footage of them losing their mind isn’t necessarily fake. It’s more li– actually, hold on. This concept … it’s everything my brain has ever wanted to think about:
One trick you may have seen a thousand times and never noticed is conversational audio cues. They’re like a laugh track on a sitcom — your brain is really only trained to notice them when they’re not there.
