Survivor was one of the first reality shows that aired on Television to a general audience in the U.S. in the early 2000. Since then, many corporations, companies and producers are tapping into the reality show pool to extract a concept of a show for almost any job, celebrity, lifestyle or culture. Although some concepts of reality shows can be beneficial and entertaining, the majority of reality shows have given a bleak outlook to society. For one thing, the reality shows are setting a bad example for the general audience to adapt or be influenced by the shows to their household environment. Plus, individuals that should not partake in watching some reality shows get influenced too quickly, most undoubtedly the shows that talk about the bad side of society.
Not only are reality shows a very warped "reality", but the actions portrayed on these shows lead some youth to re-enact these behaviors on a smaller scale. I've noticed that girls who watch these shows are more inclined to be stuck-up, rude, and ultimately disrespectful. The media plays a huge part in our development as a youth, and reality shows are a poor excuse for "real life", but the younger you are, the less likely you are to realize just how rude these people are being. These shows encourage drama and negative interactions amongst each other..
