Most of my friends will tell you I am quite the reality TV junkie. After all looking at my sidebar this will be my 30th post on reality tv. I wouldn't necessarily say I have a specific genre of reality tv I more, but more of all reality in general.
Let's see, just this summer I've been watching a lot of the shows on TLC (Jon & Kate Plus 8, 18 Kids & Counting, Toddlers & Tiaras). There's been several on Bravo (Top Chef, Real Housewives). I watched some dating shows like The Bachelorette. I watched 16 and Pregnant on MTV. And then come the fall I'll be watching Survivor and Amazing Race. That's a lot of shows, but clearly not all of them.
Then last night when I was on Facebook, I saw a wall posting between two of my friends. It turns out one of the girls I knew when I was younger was on a reality tv show this summer and she was sending her a Congrats! She was on a show I thought I should have been watching, but never took the time to turn it on! Of course now, the shows over so I can't even watch the episodes to see if she's anything like what I remember. Or if the producers might have changed her into someone completely different.
I'm sure if I really wanted to I could find the episode online. But more than that, I'm a little disappointed with myself. I should have been watching at the start of the season and then been able to get excited, "Hey I know that girl!" O well, I'm sure someday I'll recognize someone else on know in real life on a reality tv show. I guess that means I'm not the reality TV junkie that I thought I was.
Anyone else think they're maybe a little too addicted to reality tv? Or maybe you've seen someone you know on a show you were watching? Or even more exciting, have you ever been on a reality tv show? Tell me all about it, and let me live vicariously through you!
