I’m completely done with reality TV.
Reality TV is here, it’s been here really since the Carol Levis Discovery Show in 1957. It’s never changed. It just looks a bit different.
I’ve never seen the Osbournes, I’ve never seen Paris Hilton. I’d rather read than watch reality TV. I’d rather live life than watch somebody else living it.
President Trump, who made his name in the business world and built a brand as a successful CEO via a reality TV show that punished incompetence, was not just elected for a series of tough policy views.
Truth is stranger than fiction, which is why reality TV is so popular.
I don’t like the negative of reality tv – the ‘you’re no good, so you have to leave, I choose you, but I thought you really loved me.’ It’s all about how bad people are and I just hate that. I like Pimp my Ride where someone is helping somebody.
It’s like watching a car accident, that reality TV.
I’m a TV addict, and I personally really enjoy reality TV.
I preferred MTV as it used to be when it was about the music – I don’t like it that now they just have reality shows. Reality TV rots people’s brains.
I think people can’t say anymore, ‘Celebrities should keep their political opinions to themselves,’ because we elected a reality TV star, so I think that’s off limits.
There isn’t an amount of money you could offer me to do reality TV. I would rather get my job back on the building site. Or I could own a construction business. Maybe I could retire to my house in Long Island and take up painting, like Captain Beefheart. A crazy recluse: I like that idea.
I love reality TV and everything, and it’s something that I truly love to do, and I love the outcome of it; it’s like my art. I consider my reality show as my art piece, and it’s like a sculpture that I built; it’s my baby.
Thank God reality TV happened. Oh my God, it gave me a chance.
I do like reality TV like ‘The Voice.’ I enjoyed working there every single day. It was amazing.
YouTube clips get millions, billions of hits. Reality TV programs have their own channels. How can movies attempt to compete with these kinds of numbers? And do we even need to? Are we scaring ourselves by unnecessary comparisons, by not comparing apples with apples?
I’ve turned down millions of dollars to go on reality TV. It’s an absolute no-go.

All of the reality TV I’ve done has usually been simultaneously an opportunity to create awareness or raise funds for my mom’s breast cancer organization.
I’m not a big fan of reality TV shows.
Reality TV has blown away the need for a roster of familiar faces in films. Plus, films became franchise and didn’t need stars. But the real difference between stars and celebrities is that stars have training and talent, and celebrities just have exposure.
I would be on the ‘anti-reality’ show. I can’t stand reality TV. I can tell you one that I absolutely would not be on, and that’s ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ If you ever see me on that show, just please understand my family is starving to death, and things are really bad in the Church household.
Reality TV finds talented people. There are no scripts. The editing is what it’s all about. Great editing makes those shows.
There’s a hardening of the culture. Reality TV has lowered the standards of entertainment. You’re left wondering about the legitimacy of relationships. It’s probably harder to entertain the same people with a more classic form of writing, and romantic comedies are a classic genre.
Whenever education budgets get tightened, art programs are the first to get cut. Like the enduring popularity of reality TV, this never ceases to amaze me.
Now, I’ve never hosted a reality TV show, but I know the true mark of a successful businessman is not the number of times you say, ‘You’re fired.’ It’s the number times you say, ‘You’re hired.’

I get labelled a ditzy, blonde reality TV person, which is fine.
Reality TV is hard. You put yourself out there and you have no control over which parts they show (and don’t show). And you are shooting sometimes 15 hour-days for months and months. It’s exhausting – physically and mentally.
Long before the arrival of reality TV – before speed cameras, before recording angels on buses and lampposts – I felt I was living in a country that already knew how to watch itself. It was journalism that held the responsibility for seeing who we were and noticing what we did.
For me, I feel like reality TV is anything but these days.
I love reality TV shows like ‘Big Brother’ where it’s smart game to vote off the strong competitors, especially early on to give the other people a fighting chance. From a game stance, it’s totally acceptable.
I feel like reality TV has thrown a difficult wrench in the system – on the programming and making side, and on the curating side – which is that we now have a higher threshold for the salacious. We have a higher threshold, unprecedented, for fast, cheap, and out of control.
With reality TV, sometimes it’s amazing chemistry and you get these gems that turn out to be everything you hoped, and the camera loves them and they just blossom on the show. And then sometimes it’s not all you envision.
I’ve been offered all the reality TV shows but have turned them down. If I did it as ‘Johnny,’ there’d be no jungle left! It was really hard regaining control of myself, so I am reluctant to let ‘Johnny’ back out of the box.
I could suddenly see the pressures all around; these endless magazines and cheap reality TV programmes poking at women, humiliating us for every flaw. It makes me so angry. I really wonder what it is we are doing to ourselves, because I do think women can be the worst ones for picking each other apart.
I’ve said no to ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ ‘Strictly,’ and the American one, ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ I don’t feel it’s right for me. I’ve been asked to do reality TV a zillion times. No way. No way. Nobody’s going to get into my living room and see me there.
I don’t go out. I don’t go to clubs. It’s not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV. I have a million shows on my TiVo.

I’d have to say that reality TV ruined our family, and it’s a disgrace.
If you’re rude for television’s sake, it ain’t reality TV.

I watch reality TV, but unless you have been part of that crew, unless you’ve sort of been immersed in that culture in what’s happening, unless you have been in that concentrated moment, you wont believe it unless you’re there. And with ‘Ton of Cash’ we just hope that we captured all of the best moments.

I cannot believe that people really sit and devote hours of their lives watching reality TV like ‘Big Brother.’
I’m really bad, I watch reality TV sometimes – I just think it’s the best form of escape.
The process of going on ‘Drag Race’ is, in my opinion, more than a fiscal investment. It’s cultural. It’s the ‘Game of Thrones’ of reality TV.
Celebrity culture, it’s everywhere, isn’t it? It’s reality TV, Big Brother. I didn’t become a footballer to be famous, I became a footballer to be successful. I didn’t want to be famous. Now people want to be famous. Why? Why would you want people following you about all day?

My primary passion is film-making. That’s the aspect of my life that defines me, completes me, and completely grounds me. Everything else – from judging a reality TV show to hosting a talk show – is just a result of me being a film-maker. I am the happiest, satisfied and at peace when I am behind the camera.
I lived in L.A., and the possibility out there is endless. I could’ve done reality TV! It was offered to me plenty of times. But that just wasn’t where my heart was. If I wanted quick fame or quick money, I could’ve taken that route, but it just wasn’t settling right with me.
I don’t like reality TV. I don’t want to look down on people.

The distinction between reality and fiction in America seems like it is becoming really blurry. With its religious fanaticism, reality TV programs and fake news broadcasts being aired by the government, the States feel like they are entering the Dark Ages.

I think sometimes people will look at the ‘X Factor’ winners or they will look at reality TV shows and they will think actually you can have instant success, fame, money overnight.
I created my own little online series, ‘Love, Life & Music,’ years ago, before reality TV got poppin’. I wanted my fans to see that I wasn’t just here sitting on my hands. I’m out here every day, grinding and working.
I was completely with the reality TV boom for a while. I really liked a lot of the reality TV, and the one that lost me was the ballroom dancing one they do, ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ That was the one where I watched it and I was perplexed. I thought it was really boring.
Reality TV to me is the museum of social decay.
As long as Reality TV doesn’t get boring, it’s good.
Reality TV has totally destroyed soap operas. They’re gone. They used to be the biggest thing in the world – they’re gone.
I think reality TV is a little tougher for me than I thought it would be.
I’m such a Shangela fan. I think she exemplifies ‘Drag Race’ greatness. She’s like the Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard of ‘Drag Race.’ She’s like a patron saint of reality TV.
I can’t stand folk who are all snobby about reality TV.
I got my developmental deal first, and I got ‘Total Divas.’ Everything from there it just went, boom! I was living my life on reality TV. I had to perform for WWE as well as show that to the whole world.
Honey, unlike the song ‘Same Parts’ by Tatianna, what you see with Alyssa Edwards is always the truth. She is literally a walking catchphrase factory. She is like an oil out of the ground. She is reality tv, and I absolutely love her.

There are certain values that, in my opinion, television has lost – various moral lines. How far you go in, say, revealing what people get up to on reality TV, and also graphic violence and swearing – the taboo of various swear-words is no longer there. It’s worrying.
I enjoy watching Fear Factor, Newlyweds and American Idol as far as reality TV shows go.
I love to hang out with boys – I’ve got brothers – but I’m a girl’s girl, in all the ways you can be girlie. Nails and chats and gossip magazines and reality TV and pop culture.
I think Desperate Housewives is a pretty good show, I watch it, I like it and I don’t love reality tv that much. I do watch some, I’ve got three daughters so we’ll watch the good stuff, the fun stuff.

I’m the Christopher Biggins of reality TV.
I think a lot of people can come across looking messier than they are, but that’s what reality TV is unfortunately.

The working-class aspirations are worse now than when I was a kid – and it was pretty bad when I was a kid. Reality TV means they are being told they are no longer a working class, they’re an underclass. Young lassies want to be Jordan or Jade, but very few aspire to be the next Germaine Greer.
I love looking at people who have achieved a lot – even Kim Kardashian, who has made a brand out of being a reality TV star; I applaud that.
I think that’s where reality TV works – you don’t know where it’s going.

Both the ‘Gregor’ series and ‘The Hunger Games’ are what I call lightning-bolt ideas. There was a moment where the idea came to me. With ‘The Hunger Games,’ the lightning bolt sort of hit at a moment when I was channel surfing between reality TV and the coverage of the Iraq war.
Reality TV started becoming big when I was in college, around 2002. I remember everyone kept saying, ‘Man, you guys should do reality.’ And I was always like, ‘I don’t know.’

I’m not a big reality TV person, although recently someone got me into 90 Day Fiance,’ which is pretty addictive.
For me, one of the most beautiful and rewarding aspects of serial reality TV is that characters can move freely along a spectrum of heroism and villainy.
I’ve been on reality TV since I was 23.
