Transcript of REALITY TV
and its effects on society
When you watch television you are subconsciously socialized through it; changing the way you act, dress and behave. These shows tend to negatively socialize us giving false perception of body image, love and an unrealistic life style.
The Bachelor and The Bachelorette
The series revolves around a single bachelorette/bachelor (deemed eligible) and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25), which could include a potential husband or wife for the bachelorette/bachelor.
Reality T.V. sets a bad example for teenagers/ young adults. It gives the impression that everything is a challenge and a game and that comical behavior even if wrong still makes you money and brings "happiness".
MTV's Teen mom sets a bad example for teen girls.

Emotionally manipulative - "Do you think your husband/wife is in that room?"
"The trauma pitch"
"Season 13 contestant Megan Parris said in 2009 that the producers edited footage to create a false storyline. "I don't think [the producers] showed any real conversation I had with anyone... The viewers fail to realize that editing is what makes the show... You'll hear someone make one comment and then they'll show a clip of somebody's face to make it look like that is their facial reaction to that statement, but really, somebody made that face the day before to something else. It's just piecing things together to make a story." Parris said not only is the show scripted, but that producers "bully" contestants into saying specific things to the camera that the contestants do not want to say. She said, "There's nothing real about [the "confessionals," in which contestants talk to the camera about the latest goings-on]. It is scripted. They basically will call you names, berate you, curse at you until they get you to say what they want you to say."
Keeping Up With the Kardashians
A drama reality TV show that has a portrayed view of a "normal everyday family lifestyle". It gives the impression that having lots of money is what brings happiness into a family. When arguments appear they always end in a life lesson, big hugs, and usually some type of present given and the apology is excepted. The rules can be easily broken, family gossip (drama), instant forgiveness, and an obscene amount of money is all a part of being a Kardashian, and the "everyday lifestyle".
Money equals everything

Having the perfect skinny body is what makes you more liked and famous

Ian McGrath who works at one of the most popular motels and restaurants on the shore. Said he doesn’t see a difference in appearance from before the Jersey Shore era to now. “There have been people coming to the shore dressed as "guidos and guidettes” since the 1980’s.” said Ian. The partying is a different story, he believes people of all ages are now going to clubs and acting like the cast. A more national perspective is given by Chelsea Leyden, currently she works at a large College bar in Washington D.C. but grew up in the actual Jersey Shore. Said She sees a difference in the way people act in Washington D.C. and the Jersey Shore since the show premiered. Chelsea goes on to say: “I feel the show has made it more acceptable to binge drink, act belligerent, engage in overly promiscuous behaviors, and initiate fights.”
