I should be writing or sleeping right now, but I just read a fascinating article on The Morning News and I feel compelled to tell you, reader, about it. The article concerned reality TV shows and their psychological effects on their contestants, and like all well-written things
(and The Discovery Channel), it piqued my own curiosity concerning the topic.
It made me think about a girl I went to high school with (I'd venture to even maybe call her a friend) who was a contestant on the Real World San Diego. When I first heard about her being on the show, I was really happy for her, and interested to find out what it was like. But I never asked her about it, and the whole idea of it isn't really that exciting anymore. Still, thanks to this article, I'm again very tempted to do my own journalistic research. Not because I want to talk to someone "famous" or to say I talked to someone famous, but because I think it's interesting as hell.
Thoughts on reality TV--love it or hate it? Or both?
I have to say I've actually grown pretty indifferent to it these days. It's interesting to analyze and read about, but, honestly, I get bored with these people.
But not this one:
Congratulations, C. You know you've made it when the question who is hotter, you or Haylie Duff, is asked. As for me, I'm still getting put up against the likes of William Hung in the hotness contest--and losing.
