Why do we love reality TV so much?
Whether you prefer watching bakers battle it out in the Bake Off tent or seeing how celebrities survive in the Australian jungle, many of you will agree that watching reality TV programmes has become a guilty pleasure.
A recent survey has found that 95% of women aged 15-55 watch at least one reality TV show religiously, with most programmes attracting around 10 million viewers or more. According to experts, the main reason that the shows appeal to women is because many include “big emotional moments, big tears and big tantrums.” Experts said that women also like to gossip about reality TV with friends and family and on social media, something that we can definitely relate to.
TV ratings show that dramas such as “Poldark” and “The Night Manager” are the only programmes more popular with women than reality TV. When it comes to reality shows many women choose to watch American series, with the most popular choice being “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, obviously!
