Reality TV, A Golden Opportunity To Fame Or The Doom Of Mishaps?

2 min



Whether it is about people trying to find love,  racing across the globe, facing their fears, living with strangers, or talent competitions, there seems to be no off-limits when it comes to reality TV shows these days.
Yes, I know, they are so addictive and so juicy to watch! But it must be hell to be a post/ex-contender of some of these shows especially considering some of the dramatic exits. I find myself wondering, whether reality TV really is  the a golden ticket to fame and quick cash or whether they are just one those things that you get into to gain some publicity and you end up with more than you bargained for ( a bad reputation as the icing on the cake!) ?
Is it worth the aftermath of damaged image and reputation? I mean I don’t even want to mention names but we all know where I’m going with this.
The whole issue of DKB and Eazzy on Big Brother Africa, the exit drama and having to come out into the “real world” with pending damage control raise the question; Is it really worth it?
Sometime I ask myself what makes people want to do some these show and honestly, I can’t seem to figure out because it seems to me that 3 out of 5 reality stars end up with reputation issues after the shows!
They can blame it on the stress of the competition, the editing , the producers and the hair stylists  but seriously, can you guys please help me figure out why people go into all these shows in the first place, is it for money, for fame or just to be on TV?
Let’s hear what you think of some these shows. Would you still do it even if it means losing yourself in the process?? Let’s get talking…
