If television is meant to be a means of escape from our real lives, why do we get so invested in reality TV shows?
These shows are so trash, but at the same time so addictive that, like many, I find myself sitting through the night and early hours of the morning watching episode after episode after episode - suddenly reality TV dominates my programming schedules.
It’s like we live for their drama. We eat it, we breath it, and we share it amongst our friends and colleagues the very next day.
Trash TV is definitely something we could live without, but luckily we don’t have to.
Here’s a list of the most popular reality shows on TV right now.
