The Hills, Survivor, Amazing Race, Big Brother, The Apprentice, Jersey Shore, What Not to Wear, The Bachelor, American Idol – the list could go on and on. It started with the first ground break season of Survivor during the summer of 2000 and since then we have become almost obsessed with reality TV. What do you think of this genre that has taken over televisions prime-time programming?

Do you have a favourite reality TV show? Do you think reality TV is actually depicting reality? What does it say about us as a society that we now watch so much reality TV? Which do you prefer “reality” TV or traditional non-reality TV?
