The Reality of Reality TV: My experience on a reality show
Many of my friends and people I haven’t seen for up to three years see me and say something in the regards of “those guys are asses”, “they don’t know what they are talking about”, or “the show isn’t that good”. They say this to make me feel better or maybe because they do seem like asses on the Beautiful People reality show. (It’s their strategy they told me, they love controversy.) I’m always shock because they think reality TV is reality. It’s more TV than reality.
It’s a show. I don’t get emotional over it but I was only on the show to get some exposure. Did I really want them to give me the $100,000? Hell yeah! But was I really expecting them to? nope.
What really happened was the show called me up and ask me to be on the show. I did some research cooked up a pitch the night before filming got some models and we were good to go.
I went there and met Greg Hodge and Robert Hintze outside sitting there, looking like actors waiting for the shoot. We got into their office but it was more like a film studio then a office. We had to re act the whole experience couple of times so they can capture it. Greg and Robert were really nice. I gave them each a shirt and they wanted for their girlfriends. When I was there they really liked the shirts. We were there for over four hours and they only used 2 minutes?!? I guess that’s reality TV. At least the shirts looked really good on TV, don’t you think?
