Reality TV is getting ridiculous. lol.
I mean, Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire (2000) kinda amazed me.
I only watched one episode of it out of curiosity because I generally don’t have time to watch TV.
Predictably, the marriage resulting from the show didn’t work out. It’s kinda absurd, anyway, to think that one can find a soulmate through auditions.
While fans recovered from the disappointment of a failed match made in heaven (an oxymoron), no one thought to do another show like that.
Until Paris Hilton.
Three months ago, I don’t know whether it was her own idea or whether it was MTV’s idea, the announcment was made to find Paris Hilton a new BFF (best friends forever), yes, via reality TV!
Three days ago, celebrity blogger Xiaxue decided that she also wants a new BFF, so she’s gone and done a Paris Hilton.
She’s even set out a questionnaire for hopefuls to fill in. Check it out. It’s kinda hilarious and I had half a mind to apply for the “job” myself because I thought answering the questions would be amusing.
Ok, maybe only a quarter of a mind. I’ve been auditioning for acting jobs all my life. I don’t want to have to audition for a best friend, too!
Not for Xiaxue, anyway.
Not that she’s not cool or anything. I mean, having her as a BFF would be quite entertaining at times.
But I don’t like going sun tanning and she doesn’t MMORPG, so we’d probably hate hanging out with each other.
Back to the subject of reality TV.
I think reality TV will always appeal to the voyeur and the curious in all of us. The more absurd an idea is, the more people will turn up to watch it.
But, seriously, how good a friend can you get from a bunch of people signing up to be your best friend only because they feel that they can get something out of it?
The show is an oxymoron.
If I were ever to hold a contest like that, I would be extremely wary of the people joining the contest, which defeats the purpose of the contest! Haha.
Can’t say I’m not jealous, though. I want a BFF too! But finding a BFF, I must say, is infinitely more challenging than finding a marriage partner.
I’ve been betrayed by females much more than I have by males. It’s just ridiculous.
I’m tempted to go into a spiel about human nature and loyalty and betrayal, but I need to rush off for drums practice now so I can’t write anymore.
Perhaps you can write it for me. lol. Catch ya later in the comments! ;)
