I fucking hate reality TV. I keep it to myself in real life though as i also can’t stand people who broadly dismiss popular stuff, and we all spend time watching pointless shite so each to their own. Think there’s probably some class snobbery and at the root of the naysaying as well, maybe some sexism, idk.
Think the reason i tend not to like it is because so many of the contestants are so vacuous and fame-hungry. Quite like the narratives of reality programmes, but i struggle if the people taking part aren’t bringing any sort of skill to the contest or doing something they’re passionate about.
Recently i’ve been trying to get past my reservations about reality TV in general. I watched a BBC series called The Rap Game and really enjoyed it. The contestants all seemed relatable and were clearly quite driven and talented.
Question then - can anyone recommend any other reality TV series i might like based on the above, e.g not just a few shaggers with bleached teeth in a wobbly cardboard house who look good in budgie-smugglers?
