Advantages of Reality TV Shows
Over the last twenty years, the popularity of reality television shows has witnessed a
massive rise in popularity. Amongst the youths, reality shows have become the TV program of
choice. According to Bourn, Prichard, Hutchinson, & Wilson (2015), over half of the American
population are currently following a given reality show. Other shows such as the American Got
Talent which is intended to expose hidden unique talents in the American population records up
to ten million viewers in the USA alone. Considering the world's viewership, the show recorded
over fifty million viewers alone. Apart from being unique, reality television shows tend to be
more appealing especially among the young. Despite the immense increase in popularity, reality
TV shows have received some form of criticism, especially from social science researchers.
While critics argue that reality TV shows expose youths to obscene images and crime, others
relate TV shows with numerous benefits. Other than being a source of entertainment, reality TV
shows give a platform where individuals can showcase their talents, create awareness on valid
social issues, and helps in the development of talent.
One of the main advantages of reality television shows is that they provide talented
individuals with a platform to showcase their talents. According to Eisenberg, Ward, Linde,

the British Idol provides a platform for gifted singers, magicians, and other talented entertainers
to demonstrate and showcase their talent to the world. On a global scale, numerous musicians
can attribute their successful careers to reality television shows. Papacharissi & Mendelson
(2007) further suggest that when talented individuals are selected to participate in a given reality
show, they benefit by undergoing detailed training and supervision from already successful
professionals who act to train and hone their skills to excellence. Schnurr (2017) attributes the

Hudson to the training they underwent in the early stages of their musical careers when they
competed in different reality shows.
After successfully winning the American Idol in 2005, which was later renamed to the
American Got Talent, Carrie Underwood has become one of the most famous musicians ever.
For her, the American Idol reality show acted to kick starts her career, which has excelled since
then. When she won the inaugural American Idol reality television show in 2002, Kelly Clarkson
became a household name in not only America but also one of the most celebrated musicians.
Following the triumph, she was awarded a multimillion record deal by RCA Records, which has
enabled her to attain international glory. According to Schnurr (2017), reality television shows
are based on the concept where individuals are selected based on a given criteria and given a
platform to compete against each other. This runs for a given period and is usually unscripted
which enables the show to pick how individuals act naturally unlike other televised shows which
are scripted and edited severally.
Based on one's performance, participants who demonstrate excellence are retained in the
show until the winner is finally found at the end of the program. A winner is in most cases voted
by the public based on their performance and is rewarded. Winners of such contests are awarded
money running into million dollars among other things. Those who demonstrate excellence in
