Reality Television Programs

Do remember that reality television programs will be seen by many people and they will form impressions of you depending on your behaviour and reactions to others. Producers will be filming and recording you 24 hours a day. At some stage you are bound to slip up and say or do something you may not be proud of when you later come out of that unusual situation. No-one, other than the other contestants, will know how extreme the situation was and may not empathise with you. Film and sound can be edited carefully to show you in a certain light.

Going in blind to some like Come Dine With Me might mean you get celebrity status, but you may have to eat with someone you may not get on with. Producers will team up opposites so that a chemistry reaction occurs!

Millions of people may have seen you and feel they know you personally and won't think twice about coming over to tell you what they think of you or want to be your new best friend.

Appearing on It's Me Or The Dog with Victoria Stilwell may alert your neighbours and friends into the bad and disgusting behaviour of your dog!

However if you feel you can cope with this then why not get involved. It could be fun, lucrative and give you 15 minutes of fame. You could end up a millionaire like the late Jade Goody or find love like Chantelle! Though they are often ridiculed, Jedward are reported to have made over £6 million since they appeared on the X Factor.
