I know that Aaron can very capably speak for himself, but your comment cannot go unchallenged. You have no idea where he lives, what he drives, the size of his family etc, but you still see fit to dream up an imaginary profile, and then criticise it.
I agree. There’s no way that I would take advice on life lessons from a sweaty pimple-faced 135kg virgin like Heath, at least not on anything other than the merits of the different frozen pizza options offered at Aldi.
Learning life lessons from the bus mum as per the last episode of wife swap might actually do you some good. If you really believe that life lessons are learnt from a TV program of this nature, you are seriously deluded. The rubbish you love to watch is not "reality". It is a cooked up, low class attempt at living drama, and it fails lamentably.
I was talking to a freelance camera operator at a sporting event about this a couple of years ago, he confirmed there is never anything real about so called “reality TV.”
The networks love these shows because they are so easy to produce. Unlike a quality drama where everything needs to be right or a live sporting event where they only get one take , reality TV is easy because they just have a couple of freelance camera operators grab a few hours of vision for each episode and the producer picks the bits that support the episode narrative.
It’s driving down pay rates for freelancers in the industry too, because the low-grade programming like Wife Swap (as opposed to prime time programming, even the higher budget reality programs like Masterchef) is contracted out to the lowest bidders and no effort made to produce it to a high standard. If the rot continues, quality programming might become impossible to produce as the experienced operators won’t have anyone following through to replace them.
