There's more to this post…but I wanted to pose the question first in order to frame the debate.
Speaking of Reality TV here, instead of a reality that includes death famine war pestilence and the everyday crap, what truly constitutes reality? Or, put a better way, how would you do on a reality TV show?
Survivor, Amazing Race, a cooking show, a fashion designer show, The Apprentice, etc…
How would you do?
Would you win? Would you be the first person voted 'off the island'? Would you withstand the pressure? Would you achieve 15 minutes of fame? Would you even audition?
Sure, Reality TV is staged. It's fake. It's tongue-in-cheek to even call it Reality. But, setting aside reality for a moment, put yourself in the shows and think about how you would perform.
