    "I love this show!! Bear Grylls is such an engaging and charismatic host and the complete self-abandon with which he puts anything inside his body or subjects himself to discomfort makes for great entertainment. Even though you know there's a camera crew with him the whole time, it's fun to ignore that fact and laugh at his misery."

    "The Hills was clearly a fake "reality" show. While it may have it's entertaining moments, one could never be too sure if they were staged. Personally, when I watch a reality T.V. show, that's exactly what I want, an uncensored, unedited, reality T.V. show and I feel The Hills doesn't provide that."

    "On-line dating is definitely sketchy at times. For every person that finds love there are 25 people who find someone who lives in a basement and bathes irregularly at best. The show is entertaining in many ways. Kind of like watching a train-wreck at times. It is fun to watch and this pretty much sums it all up."

    "I used to watch this show years ago and I enjoyed it. Although I dis suspect that some parts of it looks suspicious, but I would not say that it was clearly a fake show. And the end of the show, they are at least making/creating a car."

    "Even though Pawn Stars is a reality show, I think it's obvious that there is a lot of scripting and editing, especially as you get into the later seasons and you lose some of the more genuine family moments. But even when I can tell a shot has been set up a certain way, it's cool to see the store and all the kinds of items that you might be able to find in a pawn shop."

    "Look I know when I'm watching a reality show there is some narration that the producers want to have, like a villain for example, and I know that things are largely fake. Here's the thing, as clearly fake as they are they should at least feel like reality shows, and The Bachelor crossed the line from feeling like a reality show that had obvious scripting to little more than a soap opera years ago and it is no longer fun. It has become predictable and that's a problem."

    "One of the most hilarious and unbelievable shows I have ever watched on TV. I would definitely recommend Keeping up with the Kardashians if you have a lot of time to spare to enjoy what life that you are clearly not missing out on. Overall, a comical, fake show that entertains all."

    "Any "reality" show where you are in a remote location, braving the elements, battling for money is a staged show to me. I am not one to believe that people are up for doing anything that they don't have to do especially when it comes to living situations. I also find it weird that there are such a stringent criteria that have to be met in order to be cast on reality shows like Survivor. It is an interesting show though and will hold my attention for entertainment purposes but I watch it with the mindset of it being staged."

    "The Voice offers a refreshing format which reassures us, that talent alone CAN prevail. Unlike rival programs such as American Idol and X-Factor, the coaches on this program are unable to see what the contestants look like when they first hit the stage. The auditions are essentially 'blind' auditions, where the judges sit in a chair with their back to the contestants so that their entire focus is on the voice of the contestant."
