Becoming a Reality Show Star
Do you watch your favorite reality TV shows and wish you could be a contestant? With all the reality shows on television, getting your fifteen seconds of fame has never been easier. There are tons of new reality shows popping up every year. So your best bet is to do your research.

Check their website, or the website of your favorite reality show, for specific details.
