you don't just say i want to be in a reality show so I'm going to go to Hollywood. my 2nd hour teacher always says "pretend your saying your answer to someone on another plane…t" so this is what you do, you send in a tape to Hollywood and if they like it they'll write back and if they don't it's going to go into file 13, so have them meet you and when they meet you theywill invite you to lunch or something and talk about the reality show and why you should be in it, then you will be a star!

Reality shows are television programs offered for entertainment to the viewing audience. There are 10 basic categories for reality shows: documentary, life drama, special envi…ronment, competition, talk shows, game shows, dating shows, celebrity shows, surveillance shows and professional activities. For more information refer to the book The Reality of Reality TV by Dr. Melissa Caudle available at http://www.therealityofrealitytv.com.
Reality television is a genre of television programming which presents purportedly unscripted dramatic or humorous situations, documents actual events, and usually features o…rdinary people instead of professional actors. Although the genre has existed in some form or another since the early years of television, the term reality television is most commonly used to describe programs of this genre produced since 2000. Documentaries and nonfictional programming such as news and sports shows are usually not classified as reality shows.. Reality television covers a wide range of programming formats, from game or quiz shows which resemble the frantic, often demeaning shows produced in Japan in the 1980s and 1990s (such as Gaki no tsukai ), to surveillance- or voyeurism-focused productions such as Big Brother. . Such shows frequently portray a modified and highly influenced form of reality, with participants put in exotic locations or abnormal situations, sometimes coached to act in certain ways by off-screen handlers, and with events on screen sometimes manipulated through editing and other post-production techniques. not freak shows

Most do, yes. But all are manipulated to create a more dramatic presentation for viewers. Every resulting episode needs multiple stories. The same principles of storytelling y…ou learned (or should have learned) in school apply to how they are edited. Here are a few ways: -- Contestants and participants are screened for their psychology/personality and their physical health. Smart casting agents can pre determine the kind of interpersonal drama that will happen by who they choose. Anyone on a show is there for a specific reason. -- The situation they are in is of course contrived, and planned out way in advance to create dramatic/funny situations. Usually the situations for every episode are planned out before any cameras start rolling. -- The vast majority of shows do NOT give participants scripts. (Shows like The Hills are an exception.) However, producers do sometimes give participants topics to talk about. For example, if they are talking about the news of the particular day when they are being recorded, that can't be used in the show, because the shows usually don't air for many months after they are taped. Producers would simply ask them to talk about what is happening right now, or to discuss what they expect in the next event they will participate in. -- Participants are almost always manipulated in interviews to give concise answers, dramatic answers, or in some cases to say things the way producers want them to say it. Interviews work great for this since they can be sliced up into small phrases and put anywhere in the story by the editors. Sometimes editors even use "Franken-bites", which are the audio of individual words or parts of words and edited completely out of context to make it sound like someone said something they didn't. If you can't see the person saying the words, be more suspicious. If you listen carefully, you can usually hear the tone of voice change in the middle of sentences, which is a dead giveaway. -- And of course the biggest way stories are manipulated/created is in editing. Most shows record 20 - 50 times more footage than they actually use. So producers and editors can comb through hours of footage to pull together moments to create a 2 minute scene, which may or may not give the complete story of what was happening. But of course no one would sit there and watch an hour of boring conversation, when a couple of juicy minutes gets the job done! All that said, the majority of stories in reality shows are essentially true. They're just extremely condensed and edited to make them more dramatic! Two other points: -- Reality participants sign long contracts that prevents them from discussing these details with a penalty of millions of dollars. -- Any show where the contestants are competing for money or prizes are restricted by federal law from manipulating who wins, or giving them unreasonable advantages. Technically they are game shows and fall under strict 50 year old laws to prevent producers fixing the results. All that said, there are some cases where producers think it necessary to direct participants what to do in a situation so they can make it more interesting in the show. Think of this as a patch. Shows that try to rely on fakery too much don't last. Fake drama just is not as good. The bottom line is that real life is usually boring. Reality shows create or find interesting situations and extensively edit the footage to make something we like to watch!

any reality show really ^ Reality shows like soaps are all mostly scripted but presented in a way to look real.
Get an application for the TV show, fill it out, and mail it in. In doing so, you meet a previous contestant, the supposedly "famous" Bucky Lucas. To apply for the show : …. Go to Mike's Market and move right to the magazines. Get the dropped issue and remove the application form. . Go to the TV store to watch the commercial with the mailing address. . Go to the motel office and fill out the form with a pen. . Call for a pizza to room 4-B (where Bucky Lucas is staying). The number is 555-PETE. . Take the pizza from the delivery person outside and bring it to Bucky's room. . Get a commemorative postage stamp from Bucky for your application. . Mail the form at the mailbox at the far right side of town. A helicopter will land atop the motel to take you to the island for the show.
One answer doesn't fit all reality shows. There are so many kinds. Shows like Dr. G Medical Examiner , The Investigators , 48 Hours Mysteries , Who Do You Think You A…re? are real but use actor reenactments to illustrate the story. The professionals and their contributions to this type of show are real. Shows like The First 48 , Deadliest Catch , or Ice Road Truckers are real people and their real jobs but are heavily edited to make the story flow and fit the time slot. Contest shows like Gordon Ramsey's , Iron Chef , Project Runway , Dancing With the Stars , America's Next Top Model are real contests but may have staged moments for drama. The celebrities that lend their participation to these shows have their reputations at stake. The few 'scandals' that have arisen on shows like American Idol , America's Got Talent , etc. are minor compared to the enormity of their popularity and their promotion of unknown talent. So far there's been no findings that the contests are faked and there are plenty of 'non winners' to complain if there was. Shows like The Real Housewives , The Bachelor , Survivor , etc. are questionable how much is real and how much is staged. Reality shows can also change reality; it can change who 'real people' are. Jon and Kate are the classic example. Reality shows run the spectrum from Paris Hilton to Antiques Roadshow to To Catch a Predator , too many to give an accurate answer. How much is real and how much in fake will never be an exact science.
yes. reality shows are a boon as they show the hearts of common people through their talents
if you like cooking theres...Masterhef! Hey, how come it never worked out for England?
There was a short show (3 episodes I think) that was put on by the BBC called Millionaire Traders. It is pretty good and can be watched on YouTube.
While individual tastes may differ, the two leaders of reality television of all time are: Survivor - which is going into its 22nd season and continued to garner killer ratin…g and industry praise. Amazing Race - which continues to garner awards and critical praise for technical work and the shear genius of simply pulling it off. Other reality shows are also popular, so there may be a lot of "bests" out there, but if we go by longstanding endurance, quality and critical acclaim.. these two take the cake.
Well, if you mean reality shows like "Prank Stars", it's probably because it didn't get too much views. If it isn't because of that, then i don't know.
