I feel reality TV is a great form of entertainment because it shows that a lot of good things and bad things can happen, some people like to have that type of drama of watching TV. People like me can also make fun of the people on the TV for what they buy and how they should spend more time on things that are more important, it can also be very funny for the watchers.

I believe Reality TV is a bad influence. Although it may be funny I think it is a waste of funding and is a waste of the viewers time.

We all know that the TV shows we watch affect us in some ways, maybe it makes us care a little more towards some people or animals, Maybe it makes us want to be a superhero or a sports star but what does reality TV teach us? well most reality TV shows forget the biggest part.. the Real in REALity part. Most reality shows are scripted, to provide proof of this here is an article on reality TV. "the producers of the show design every aspect of the show and often controls what happens daily and the environment that the show is filmed in.-scenes are edited, and things are left out and can often be misleading-some scenes are re-staged- shows have already planned story lines given to them by the producers- contestants are made to wear certain clothing(http://mediatv.wikispaces.com...+(Reality+TV))"

How is it that what we find "Entertaining" is other peoples troubles and suffering. Is it right that we are laughing at the humiliation of others or their troubles? I think we should question our morals and ethics if we are beginning to think, as my contender thinks, that "Reality TV is a great form of entertainment".

Watching reality TV can be very entertaining because, I personally like to watch them struggle with their real world problems and how they themselves spend there time. Reality TV can also show you the beauty in the world meaning, if some family like the Kardashians went to Bora Bora and showed all the gorgeous views that can make people want to go there and have a relaxing time. Without that episode you probably wouldn't know Bora Bora was a place. Drama in a TV show can get you to the edge of the chair wanting more. The people in the shows can also be a role model so you want to see them and they only way you can do so is watch the TV show. 85% of people watch regular TV, 80% of people watch reality TV. Shows like "Duck Dynasty" has more than ten million viewers. Americans spend about U31; of their free time watching regular TV and of that 67% are reality shows. People now a days love reality TV. The people in the TV show make big money approximately $100,000 one episode. It also is again good money, but also is good because it finds people jobs. Also cost only $7.00 to make a ten day reality show. Happiness in shopping
Friendships are made of drama
That sometimes you talk bad behind your friends back, its normal
The more outrages you are the more attention you get.
Reminds girls that things can get better
Shoes to treat others kindly because you can start a war
