Reality shows are concentration camps for the venal and retarded
I love money 2.
They are definitely retarded, but they are told what to say most of the time and the drama and interpersonal tension is scripted. Usually by the same people who edit it. Because of this, they don't have to be paid as television writers. The WGA is making this a major issue and could probably destroy this kind of reality television if they're ever successful.
I know one of the girls who was on Scream Queens on VH1. She was paid a day to make an ass of herself on national television, but that is the level of desperation actors get themselves into.

I'm not here to make friends. I'm not sure why I'm here. I don't know where they've taken us. They told me to come in here and talk; there ain't no cameras.

I see Fatatty gets the This American Life podcast as well.
That he does. The only way I would have ever known about this phenomenon.

I now need a "threw them under a bus" compilation.
*the* bus, even. Any bus will do, really.

I am here to make a total ass out of myself, however.

You lose the right to have friends the second you set foot on an reality TV show set. Even if you're just an innocent bystander who stumbled into it, you are no longer allowed to have friends.
I would like to extend that to the producers, directors, crews, advertisers, networks, viewers, airwaves, cable wires, the insulation around the cable wires, electrons, protons, neutrons, weak and strong nuclear forces, and the universe that makes these shows happen.

Just so you guys know, I'm not here on POETV to make friends.

HAI GUISE, I'M HERE TO MAKE FRIENDS, WELCOME!

Well, I think someone needs a friend.

What's wrong with making friends? Hey guys, lighten up!
