Has reality TV died a slow and painful death? Remember back in 2000 when Craig won the first ever Big Brother and now he sells painting tools on shopping channels! Do ya!!? Weren't those the days (I was a wispy size 10 then) then the producers got savvy and realised there was money in this here random people talking cheese! And the flood gates opened ...
- Pop Idol
- Fame Academy
- The Apprentice
- Love Island
- X Factor
- Britain's Got Talent
- Come Dine with Me
- Dinner Date
Seriously the list goes on ... now we have more upper class shows like Made in Chelsea however we like to balance this out with The Only Way is Essex where everyone says "Shu up" and has a spray tan.
But then we viewing public got a bit bored and the producers twiddled their over large thumbs and come up with the mother of all ideas ..... sticking celebrities in the jungle and ask them to eat kangaroo balls! Way to go! Celebrities seem to sell so I know lets teach them to dance (Strictly Come Dancing) no let's make it more dangerous. Teach them to Dance on Ice!
So what do you think? Has reality TV died? Or is it still limping on through our TV Guides? Or do you think it's still new, current and exciting?
I can't be the only person not to have seen Big Brother since that boy from the Welsh Valley's won!? Go Glan Glen Wales! What happened to you? 2013 saw the year that I didn't even watch The Apprentice or X Factor! I KNOW!! I filled my nights with crime thrillers and Casualty and guess what! I survived! The formats don't change and with the ever growing need to # everything you can read on Facebook and Twitter the whole show without seeing one second.
So I ask again - is reality TV dead?!
