The End Is Near..."Reality"

It is a sad day in the Jarnagin home. The end of the Newlyweds (Nick & Jessica) is tonight. OK seriously, I am having a bit of fun with this, but it is really the only TV show that my wife and I will ever try to sit down and watch. If knowing this makes you think of me differently now, GET OVER IT!

No really, this show is too entertaining. I think that one of the reasons I enjoy watching Nick and Jessica is that they remind me a bit of me and my wife (my wife is probably now offended). Unfortunately MTV has some of the best "reality" shows on TV in my opinion (Punk'd). I really thought that "reality" TV was going to be gone by now. There isn't much reality on "reality" TV.

Try to imagine your life on TV. Say someone wanted to put your life to film (like the Truman Show). "Reality" TV is just situational TV. People act totally different while on TV or camera. How real is it really? If I try to imagine being filmed, it doesn't excite me so much. Would I be afraid of what people would think of my life? Would I "ham" it up for the camera? The public would either love me or hate me. But the truth wouldn't really be me.

Next week look for the special Blog on MTV.

You are definately right in that people act differently on camera. Plus, we have to remember that reality TV shows are still produced. They film Nick and Jessica for a whole week and then choose what to place on TV for thirty minutes. Also, they edit it in the manner in which they choose. However, aside from that, it is still entertaining. If they didn't edit or produce somewhat, it would be a bore.

I confess I am a closet watcher. Great show! I will miss it also.
