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.

It's I think the only anime that I have watched, that I like.  It has good characters, good plot lines, and a good synopisis. Is plot and synopisis the same thing? Oh well
