America what are our Reality TV shows teaching/showing us? It’s not just us Americans who watch these shows anymore, because these shows have gone global. Now I believe majority of Americans watch some form of a Reality TV show, because these shows are easy to get hooked on. Personally, I love watching Big Rich Texas, Real Housewives of Orange County, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. What gets under my skin the most is when these rich people buy expensive food, and WASTE IT!!! Sometimes they don’t even eat half of it. How hard is it to ask for a To-Go box? Does it mean your poor or not high class, if you ask for a To-Go box? We have Americans staving and we have people just wasting food like its nothing. That’s showing people from other countries that we are some spoiled people who don’t care about wasting food. That’s not a good look. Next, we have Teen Mom and Jersey Shore (I hate Jersey Shore). These shows give my generation a bad look, because all its showing is young adults who are wild and untamable. People assume that’s all people in my generation do: go party, get drunk, and wake-up next to someone we don’t know or remember. Teen Mom is getting out of control, because at the end of the day, those young ladies are still getting paid. There are teen moms out there, that don’t have that type of help, like how MTV is showing it. You don’t need a Reality TV show to see a pregnant teenager, just go to any local high school or even middle school and your see one. Last, The Bachelor and Bachelorette are starting to get a lot of complaints from people of different races, because no minority race has been the main character looking for love. America is so diverse that something should have been happened. Now I’m not sure are people going to turn off the TV if they see a black man choosing a white girl over a black girl. Every race can be romantic, and draw in great ratings. Personally I don’t care for the show, but I’ve read articles about it, but in the end it’s all up to ABC. Reality television is on the rise, but we need to ask ourselves: are these shows in the common good for America or just to make a quick buck? United We Stand and May God Bless America
