    Where else can one guy date 30 chicks at the same time, and they all know about each other? :rofl:

    I need to get some of that 'reality'...:cool:

    Somebody on TV once referred to them as "unscripted shows." Ever since I heard that term it put it all in perspective.

    But they are scripted, or at least heavily guided. Then they'll reenact something that wasn't caught on camera. One of my pet peeves (and believe me I don't watch the trashy crap) is like when someone goes to meet someone for the first time.


    Knocks on the door, person comes and says OH WHAT A SURPRISE! but they show footage from inside the house showing there was already a camera crew inside.

    People should be able to figure that out based on the fact that they all have a large staff of writers in their credits, but I guess the typical viewer of most reality shows either doesn't care, or isn't that bright.
