I recently ran across a cartoon about a reality show that actually appealed for me, for once. Source
The values of reality television are about as terrifying as it gets regarding body image, self-esteem, confidence and beauty. Everything from Beauty and the Geek, to The Swan to a recent show called Bridalplasty where brides-to-be competed for plastic surgery makeovers prior to their dream weddings. If I ever see botox needles as the prize again, it will be too soon. The idea of not humiliating, torturing or exploiting reality television participants seems like a pipe dream.
