Confession. I am a bit of reality television junkie. I know they're not especially academic nor do they present people in the best light, but I often can't tear myself away. There's just something about watching regular people interacting in different situations. Whether it's everyday life, living on an island with strangers, competing in a singing competition, buying a wedding dress, running around the world or facing a problem, I find human interaction fascinating. Bring on "Survivor," "Amazing Race," "Project Runway," "The Real World," "Top Chef," "American Idol," "Hoarders," "Obsession," "My 600 lb. Life" and more. A few, I haven't missed an episode of. Others, I've watched occasionally. I'm not especially proud of the fact that I've watched people lower themselves to compete for a bachelor, yet, there it is. The first step is admitting it, right? (I learned that on "Intervention"). I do have some boundaries. I don't watch reality shows about celebrities. I can't relate to any them, nor do I want to. I can't get into watching people who often are famous only because they're rich. Give me a poor waitress who sings herself into stardom over bickering kids with silver spoons any day.
