The One With the Reality Show 

The Bachelor. Akademi Fantasia. Race to the Altar. Who Will Win. What else? American Idol. Malaysian Idol.

Oh well...probably i should categorised them where audience votes count etc. Nonetheless, if you have been watching Akademi Fantasia II, you would know of them (the organizers) changing their rules at the very last minute. AFMASUK. There should be 5 finalist, but a few before the finals, another was allowed to be in, thus making it 6 finalist. Of course the 6th is voted by the audience again.

The thing is...it was a surprise. And outraged most. Which leads to the Reality Shows. Reality shows have become quite big these few years. Imagine actually having a REAL Truman show. Reality shows are somehow unpredictable. And people get excited over the small details, thinking that "Hey, it's REAL. It's life. These are the real people". These are shows trying to portray the closest real stories of our everyday life. Yet...well..there are still shows anyway.

And indeed, Akademi Fantasia II should not be the same as Akademi Fantasia I. Or Joe Millionaire and The Bachelor. Stories are made to have twists. So these 'organizers' and production people are trying to create that twist. Whether you like it or hate it, it gives a positive outcome to them. It's your emotional sentiment that gives that extra value.

But to think of it, you have cameras around you 24/7. Every corner in your life, there's a hidden camera. But it does not make you less of an actor.

And the objective? To get profit. Money from the audience. The more you watch it, the more they get the ratings. The more you SMS, the more money they collect. Even the participants are there for the money. And they are all actors and actresses.

Oh well..reality bites.

Time to get new ideas for brilliant pictures.
