The REALITY behind Reality T.V. Shows

Well guys !! This is indeed a very simple topic to discuss & give your opinion. I’m just writing something to describe my own opinions in my own way. 😉

In this modern Television era, we all know about the Reality T.V. shows. Watching them is kinda Daily Routine for us. It’s a MUST-SEE thing to watch these days as we all want to get rid from those Pathetic Useless News & Melodrama in Serials.

So therefore we watch them too much like HELL whether It’s a Celeb-Reality Shows (Like – Dancing with the Stars, The Simple Life, and Big Brother) Prank-Reality Shows (Like –Punk’d), Game Shows (Like – Who wants to be a Millionaire) Talent Hunts (Like – American Idol, America’s Got Talent) Dating-Shows(Like – For Love or For Money, Jersey Shore), Adventure/Fear based shows(Like – Fear Factor) etc. etc. etc.

These shows are becoming more interesting to watch. That’s why, their viewership, demand & popularity is increasing day by day.

Gosh !! We are getting addicted to it like Hell man. But still, We are fond of watching such shows & out of nowhere, we are able to get some time to watch’em all . 😛

Studying the International television scenario, the Indian counterpart has promptly caught-up with the latest trends. Moreover, it has become the obvious that the Indians are expert in copying the foreign ideas & innovations. So finally, Reality Television has arrived in India and is here to stay !

Certain reality shows like – Kaun Banega Crorepati, (simply called KBC ), hosted by Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, which is the Indian version of Who wants to be a Millionaire, is a major hit with the audience in India. What followed next was a flood of reality shows, many of them being adaptations of the pre-existing western versions. There are a bunch of examples of it Jhalak Dikhlaja ( copied from Dancing with the Stars) , Bigg Boss ( copied from Big Brother) , Indian Idol ( copied from American Idol ), India’s Got Talent ( copied from America’s Got Talent) , Truth Love n’ Cash ( copied from For Love or For Money)
MTV Roadies ( copied from The Survivor) , Khatron Ke Khiladi ( copied from Fear Factor) etc. etc. etc.

We’ve some reality shows Like – KBC, which is very beneficial in terms of General Knowledge and Money. Talent shows Like – Indian Idol, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa , Dance India Dance , India’s got Talent , are those which bring & show some nice Talents from all over INDIA. It is platform typically a platform for those talented people whose dreams probably come true. Though the channel produces certain elements just to gain sympathy by playing with the emotions & killing the ethics, which in turn built their shows with huge TRPs. But still in a nutshell, such shows are must-see shows.

However, these are becoming too boring bullshit for the current Youth Generation as they all find it useless. They built a silly perception that It’s for Uncles-Aunts & the old people only. They demand for those shows which are something different & interesting to watch. This is how the youth-related shows are coming in TV these days & making their places in their fantasy TV world. Though they are entertaining but there are various instances which sometimes becomes unbearable to watch.

Certain Youth-related shows Like- MTV roadies, Splitzvilla, Dadagiri, where we see excessive use of cheap abusive & trash-talking, making the environment violent enough. While some Dating Shows Like – Love.NET, Dare To Date, Emotional Atyachaar, are also pathetic as they produce certain horny elements which sometimes becomes too vulgar & obscene in National Television. Still It’s a BIG HIT and would be on demand for a very long time as the majority teenagers & youth watching such shits every time, finds them very interesting. It therefore becomes HYPE and a so-called Trend Statement among the Youth.

Well, such shows are making an impact on them. They started thinking those contestants as their Idols & Lords. The Youth are desperately wants to be a part of part of it somehow. Since such shows give chance to such people every time. So ultimately, It has now become a platform for those Untalented Wannabes who just want instant Fame & Money, and since such shows are interested to recruit them to make their shows very interesting these people desperately want to come on such shows.

As a matter of fact, these shows are now scripted. Various elements & instances prove that conclusion easily. There is no sense of reality in such shows. These are totally FAKE. Just for increasing their TRPs, they produce certain elements so that people would take an interest on these shows & would definitely watch them. But hardly any people notices on such things as they get so much fascinated towards it & think that it’s 100% real. And even if they got to know that it’s fake they would still prefer to watch because of its hype, It becomes as a trend statement. Well, such shows are on demand these days.

In this competitive Television Era, when the Media doesn’t care about the ethics anymore, then why these TV show makers would give a damn about it. They also need a place of popularity among the viewers. That’s the reason why they recruit such immature & untalented Wannabes in huge numbers, so that they use them & make them as Puppets by portraying certain characters. They know such n00bs desperately wants to come in TV somehow so that they could fulfill their dreams. And since such desperados are seeking their careers though such shows even though they have to suffer & being insulted on National Television, the TV show makers would hire them for sure as they just care about their TRPs not the career of their puppets. However, I’m not denying the fact that some punk-asses getting FAME and MONEY, but they lose RESPECT for getting those above two things.

Well sometimes I feel that not only they show the fake picture, such fake reality shows are capitalizing over the youth people. They are just being brain-washed & a bad perception is being put in their minds. Though they all might watch them for fun, but they are being misguided by such shows. Their aims have now been transformed to be on such TV shows. They would try for many years to be on such useless shows . They start building their own attitude & ego. They are changing themselves and they started being fake.

I know you all might be thinking that I’m unnecessarily raising this topic & talking too much Ole School. But lemme remind you & give you a final concluding quote, just in case you’ve forgotten somehow.

“It’s good to be modern, but not that much highly western that we forget our own culture.”

Moreover, FAME and MONEY is not everything my dear friends.
Being HUMAN and doing something HUMANE is what we should inherit in ourselves.”

    My friend, formats are selling all over the world. India, as many other countries, buy successful tv shows and adapt them in its territory. In the same way, America adapt a lot of european or asian tv shows (Big Brother, The Voice, Britain’s got talent…).
