Reality TV - Sin or Satisfaction?

Omarosa, Paris, and Ozzy. If these names don't sound familiar, then you're clearly not watching enough reality TV. Ever since Survivor exploded onto TV screens just four short years ago, viewers have been pummeled with dozens of reality shows. From the instantly forgettable (does anybody still remember Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?) to the memorable and enduring (Survivor is closing in on its tenth season!), it's clear that reality TV is here to stay. Kidzworld presents a look at what's hot and what's not about reality TV, so keep reading!

What's Cool About Reality TV

Let's admit it, the best thing about reality shows is being able to watch normal people do things they would never do in real life. With American Idol, ordinary folks like Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson become superstars right before our eyes. Shows like Survivor or The Apprentice invite us to pick and choose who we want to root for (come on, nobody wanted to see Richard Hatch win on the first season of Survivor!), while shows like The Osbournes or Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica let us watch big celebrities do very stupid things. Of course, one of the biggest subjects on reality TV is love. Whether it's The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, or Joe Millionaire, there's plenty on the air for all you romantic types.

What's Lame About Reality TV

What's up with all the humiliation? If you've watched a lot of reality television, you know that a lot of these shows love embarrassing people. Pretty much every episode of Fear Factor involves contestants doing something totally gross, while even The Simple Life seemed to be making fun of all the locals that Paris and Nicole encountered. And who could forget The Littlest Groom, that Fox series that actually mocked dwarves? Just like your mom always says, there's a big difference between laughing at people and laughing with people! Just look at American Idol "star" (and we use the term very loosely) William Hung. He's got his own album out now, but does anybody actually like his music? Hardly

I can't believe no one's made a topic about this, or at least one that I've seen. It had some in tears, and it was all over the anime/cartoon/nerd world. For people who watch the Legend of Korra, what did you think about the finale? Are Korra and Asami and item? Do you think it adds up? One of the creators, Brian Konietzko, confirmed that Korrasami was canon. I just feel bad for Mako that both of his girlfriends ended up going for each other.
