Реалити шоу. За и против
On the one hand, reality TV is great fun and it is one of the best ways of entertainment, which helps people to unwind after a long day at school or at work. Another reason for its success is in-teractivity. Most people enjoy reality shows because they have an opportunity to participate so they feel in control of the partici¬pants' destiny. Finally, we can watch how contestants react under pressure thus imagining how we would behave under the same cir-cumstances. It can be really instructive.
On the other hand, not all of these programmes are made in good taste. It seems like TV producers are running but of ideas be-cause all of them are exactly the same. What is more, many of them are actually a fake because participants are made to rehearse their performance so we cannot trust them. Finally, people who win shows like X Factor or Pop Idol are not real celebrities because they become famous for a little while and then disappear.
In conclusion, I can say that no matter whether we like reality TV or hate it, it is here to stay and it reflects our life. Personally, I think it is a good way to relax and a wonderful opportunity for people to boost their careers.
